The design, it's too cute!
I love both of them already lol.
Back to Lechonk, though...
I lost it at "Team Chris P. Bacon" lol.
Ok, last Lechonk I promise

It may appear fat at first glance, but in reality, the Pokémon’s body is mostly muscle built by constantly walking around in search of food.

Lechonk, the muscular chonk.
More of Morgan's Music Nonsense
Pokemon and Lechonk appreciation aside, you know me and my lack of self-control when I'm doing Evening Reading so... it's song recommendation time lol. This time I'm focusing on some of my all-time favorites; these are all songs that mean a lot to me starting with 3 Libras by A Perfect Circle, AKA one of the few songs that hurts me on a deep emotional level but I love to pieces all the same.
The entire Autumn Effect album from start to finish is an absolute delight.
The Pale White
Guarantee you've never heard this one before. It reminds me a little of Audiovent, another band that's fairly obscure that released one album in 2002 and then disappeared, and I like it a lot because of that, among other reasons.
I feel like I relate to Fiona Apple a lot, and I love all of her music, but this one in particular has always been a standout for me.
And there you have it, the Evening Reading for Wednesday, June 1. As a quick reminder, if you love what we do here at Shacknews, you can help support the site by subscribing to Shacknews Mercury for as little as $1 a month.
