Fortune favors the brokenhearted.

Or at least that’s what I hope!! I’m plagued by the feeling that my life is a movie: whether comedy or tragedy, I have yet to determine, but this newsletter is the soundtrack. Follow along for playlists, reviews, love notes, and emotional chaos—and to explore exactly what it is that you get when, as the poet Hayley Williams once said, you let your heart win.

Good & Good For You’s free subscription is where a lot of the action is, but when you upgrade to paid, you’ll get access to a few reflections here and there that are a little more personal. Plus, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping sponsor additions to my record collection, as well as the coffee I need to buy in order to justify my bad habit of falling in love with baristas.

Get Good & Good For You straight to your inbox!

Perhaps most importantly: your support of this newsletter in any capacity translates to support of my in-progress book about Paramore. Hayley Williams of Paramore, (almost exactly) three years older than me, has always blazed a trail through whatever life stage lay directly ahead of me, leaving me records as road signs. This book will be her story and mine, a coming-of-age story about girlhood, grief, divorce, and joy through the lens of my favorite band’s albums. (If you’re in publishing: hi, I love you, let’s chat.)

You can find me on Twitter @ktewoj or Bluesky Or, if you’re local, at Hotel Vegas catching an Austin punk band’s album release show.
