Dashboard Confessional’s Chris Carrabba launches wine to drink while you straighten your bangs

They say that if you put on a pair of checkered Vans, turn off your bathroom light, and spin around three times, you’ll be able to hear the woeful cry of mid-2000s emo teens. And if you listen closely, you just might hear notes of Dashboard Confessional’s “Screaming Infidelities” in the background. If that experience drives you to drink, I’ve got great news: Dashboard Confessional’s own Chris Carrabba is serving as a partner, investor, and emo ambassador for Canvino, a new “bottle-quality canned wine.”

“It’s almost impossible to share a truly exceptional bottle of wine at a concert due to glass restrictions, so I sought out how I could combine music and wine in a more accessible fashion,” Carrabba said in a press release. That’s why the emo frontman teamed up with California vintner Susy Vasquez, the industry mind behind Canvino’s five varietals: cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, rosé, pinot noir, and chardonnay.

From the looks of it, the wine brand is really leaning into the whole emo thing. Even the can’s splashy design is inspired by Carrabba’s tattoo sleeves. “It’s been a dream collaboration for us, because our two brands really aligned on what’s important from the get-go,” Canvino co-founder Sam Saunders said in the release. “We put as much artistry into the can as Chris does his music.” If the wine truly tastes like Dashboard Confessional feels, things are about to get deeply dramatic in my Chicago apartment. Quick—hand me my fingerless gloves.

20 must-read health books
The Health section of your local bookstore or online book retailer looks different than it did a couple of decades ago, when titles like Food-Free at Last: How I Learned to Eat Air or The South Beach Diet Supercharged were popular picks. Still today, authors—including would-be physicians, B-list celebs and underqualified fitness experts—dole out “health advice,” trying to convince readers that running themselves ragged with dieting and strenuous exercise will make them thinner, prettier, and happier. In fact, it has had an adverse effect, especially on women. The cruel dieting culture, incessant calorie counting, and little to no representation of health experts from diverse communities, along with the unrealistic standards set by the beauty and fashion industries, have led to eating disorders and severe mental health issues. Today, coupled with wellness, the topics covered in health and well-being books focus more on making healthy choices daily, keeping active, practising self-care, and being mindful of our mental health. Thanks to the body positivity movement, and some notable influencers in this space, we know that healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. This is also a time when we are hearing from more underrepresented voices in this space, making health advice and wellness tips more inclusive and relevant for all. Start the new year off with motivation, stories, and advice on how to live a healthier, happier life that works for you. Get moving by adding these 20 must-read health books to your cart.
