Hey @MovieAddict! Been a min. :purple_heart: Hope you’ve been well. Also, “GRODY” is hands down my favorite. I want to start using it all the time now. :laughing: Ew, grody!

I thought of something music-nerdy/year-appropriate earlier. I know you’re a fan too, and I have it on good authority that Gal Gadot is as well, so since you’re here—this one’s for you!


(ahem) :face_with_monocle: This week in November of 1984, Madonna released the single “Like a Virgin”. It would reach Number 1 by December, stay there for a six more weeks, and go 3x platinum by the end of January. :purple_heart: Enjoy! :dancer:t2: :notes: :microphone: (starts dramatically singing along)

There was a ton of great music released in 1984 and I’m preparing a cool little playlist to spin here for an hour or two before showtime!
