Recently Sarah expanded on this runny bit of info in a sprawling essay for Medium that tackled the trots, toxic masculinity and one of her all-time favourite actors, Robert Vaughn.

If it sounds like a lot to take in, well, it is.

Mid90s

Mid90s

They probably had her at the subtle F-Zero nod, but Sarah was thoroughly taken by the tough coming-of-age film Mid90s when she saw it at TIFF this year.

The film, which was directed by Jonah Hill, perfectly captures the mood and the feelings of that era.
