maneo amicus

stay in touch

things I love from me to you


maneo amicus

  • the Latin phrase for "stay in touch"

  • my way of sharing the things I love with the people I love

  • a place for you to share the things you love with me

my name is corey bates. i'm an art, entertainment, and culture journalist. i am also a musician, a writer, and an expert binge-watcher. maneo amicus is for and about people who love to love things and look for new ways to do old things; people who are not ashamed to wax poetic about the things that bring them joy; people who aim to make the world better and more beautiful; and people who care about sustainability, justice, and social responsibility. 

I write about TV shows, fashion, wellness, books, movies, music and more.
