A Month’s-End Associated Press (AP) Photographic Celebration of: MUSK

in Hmm Weekly
on May 1, 2022

IN OUR CONTINUING commitment to fiscal responsibility, Hmm Weekly is ever vigilant to thoroughly exhaust The Brick House Cooperative’s monthly allotment of Associated Press photos, because if we don’t use up those images, at each month’s end, they are gone. No rollovers with the Associated Press! Unused AP images are an unfortunate waste of The Brick House’s precious financial resources.

Hmm Weekly thanks you for your interest and support, and if you aren’t supporting us, allow us to encourage you to do so. Kindly click that SUBSCRIBE link or consider a DONATION, no amount too small or too large! In this unstable media environment, where huge platforms can change hands and change their fate in a moment, we count on the steady support of our readers. It’s not like we have any philanthropic, world-healing, futuristic billionaires on our team to help out with the operating expenses—not that they would, because that’s not how you stay a billionaire, right?

Anyway, please enjoy this month’s photographic topic: MUSK.

The goal is “an emotional connection.” The women’s version, which will be available through Avon representatives and online in October, is a floral oriental perfume, and the men’s is a woody floral MUSK fragrance. It will go on sale in November. (AP Photo/Job Vermeulen, file)
