14 is a nice divisible number.

Here’s a shorty short one for ya. We’re out at Fringe HQ SouthEast doing some video/photoshoots and I honestly completely forgot to ask the team for their songs this week.

It’s extremely early everywhere else in the country, and I don’t feel comfortable shaking someone awake just to ask them what their favorite song was this week. I’d do it for you, the listener, but I don’t think you’d want me to either.

Thanks for understanding.

All that being said, we’re busy trying to get some visual assets out to you that help really “build our brand,” but it’s so hard! Fringe is so many things to so many people, which is by design; but how do you put that in a picture, or a video, or a Q&A?

You probably don’t. You just keep moving forward, making things you love, saying things you mean, and trying your very best. Thanks for allowing us to do that – it’s all we’ve ever wanted to do – and we really appreciate it. And we really appreciate you.

Till next time 🤙🏻

The Homies:

1. Abby Kramer
Medical Business Development and more
Song: Orgone – Cold Side
This band has some sweet sweet tunes going on. Tune it up for some funky jam time!

2. Joe LaVacca
Lead Educator
Song: Lumineers – Brightside
No matter your situation you can always be the bright spot in someone’s life. 
If we get doubles or someone’s picked this before (hard to remember anymore) lol Let me know. 

3. Heather Manning
Director of Creative and Brand

Song: Gryffin, Josef Salvat – Heading Home
Good song, enough said – just listen.

4. Jake Means
Marketing Coordination and Robot Fighting.
Song: Mercer – Boss
This song is the best for when you are in the last mile of a hard run or bike ride. It reminds me that the only thing stopping you from being a BOSS, is you. So get out there and achieve your goals. You are the only one who can.

5. Alyson Evans
CoCEO & Founder

Song: Government Mule – Soulshine
Got to let your soul shine, Shine till the break of day.

6. Anthony Caligaris
CoCEO & Co-Founder
Song: Weezer – All My Favorite Songs
An SNL skit popped up on my YouTube about Weezer, and I went hard catching up on all things since the Blue Album. I love the juxtaposition of this song – it speaks to my internal friction over who I am. Am I a cowboy? Surfer? Metal head? Business Executive? The opposite of that? I guess the answer is yes, just let it ride.

7. Heather Cantor
A dear homie
Song: 311 – All Mixed Up
I feel like all of us can relate right now!

8. Jill Magee
Fringe Representative – Wisconsin and Minnesota
Song: The Score – Unstoppable
With one month left in a very tough year for so many I want to keep my mindset on being unstoppable. I want us all to remember we write the story of our life. We narrate how we see things and we could easily just coast this month or we can rise up and create amazing things as we confidently go into this next year and chapter of our lives. We are unstoppable. 

9. Jillian Thomas
Fringe Representative – Oregon
Song: Foster the People – Houdini

10. Michael Sierra
Video and Creative

Song: Cherub – Doses and Mimosas
We all picked this song for Michael cause apparently he loves it.

11. Michael Sierra
Video and Creative

Song: Bing Crosby & The Andrews Sisters – Mele Kalikimaka
Nothing better than Christmas on the beach! (We added this but kept his first one – Editor)

12. Aaron Patterson
Fringe Representative – Kansas and Missouri
Song: James Brown & The Famous Flames – I Got You (I Feel Good)
Not sure what vibe we got going for this Friday but this is what I’m feeling. 

13. Anthony Pranzo
Fringe Representative – New Jersey & New York
Song: Kota The Friend – Outside
An anthem for fresh starts and self care- KOTA’s feel good outlook on ‘Outside’ is a great Friday listen.  

14. Tamara Nieto
Accounting Wizard
Song: Grandma Got Runover By a Reindeer
Good thing she had Fringe ;0)  

Anthony is convinced that there’s a better way. A better way to work, a better way to manage, and a better way to live. After 10 years pretending to be a sales dude, Anthony has spent the last 5 in management roles refining his perspective on how an organization should function. Excited to combine his background in economics with his desire for commerce to do good, Anthony is looking forward to Fringe creating a new business model focused on doing the right thing.
