It seems Sadie Dupuis sources inspiration from just about everywhere. Speedy Ortiz's frontwoman and Yelp enthusiast has joined Genius' army of annotators and has begun to mark up her own Major Arcana and Foil Deer writing, drawing lines between her poetically barbed lyrics and, well: the dictionary, her friends' moms' dentists, her childhood OCD, local publishing houses, Western Mass swimming holes, Tom Wolfe on Silicon Valley, organ harvesting in China, The Breakfast Club, sleep disorders, and so on. Which is to say—new fan or diehard, there is a lot to be learned from her citations. Check three of our personal faves below and browse the rest here. And for more on Speedy Ortiz, read our recent feature or watch their "Everything You Need To Know" video.
