covid-19, fabric masks
A friend of mine wrote this summary of the literature on cloth mask effectiveness. Handy if you're trying to decide whether to mask up with homemade gear (short answer: do it) or getting into an internets argument with someone who thinks cloth masks are somehow worse than nothing. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1qzSPni8odJ2nJuxTsgzTNlv62X6gp9uOl1wUqIRpxtU/edit
She didn't include this more recent paper (but promised to add it after I sent her the link): https://www.researchgate.net/publication/258525804_Testing_the_Efficacy_of_Homemade_Masks_Would_They_Protect_in_an_Influenza_Pandemic
few lines of a pablo neruda poem
It would be an exotic moment
without rush, without engines,
we would all be together
in a sudden strangeness.
If we were not so single minded
about keeping our lives moving,
perhaps a huge silence
might interrupt this sadness
of never understanding ourselves.
Perhaps the earth can teach us
as when everything seems dead
and then proves to be alive.
It's the end of the world
I wanna live inside a shopping mall
I wouldn't care about the isolation
I'm unconcerned about the Walking Dead
If it's the end of the world
I think I'd handle myself quite well
I wouldn't panic walking past the zombie
I'd try to catch up on some reading and movies
I know all I need to know...
I know all I need to do...
I learned everything from George Romero, Dario Argento
Maybe Tom Savini, Stuart Gordon, and Sam Raimi
I forgot I ordered this print a while back, it came in the mail yesterday and when I opened it this afternoon I started ugly laughing. I can't get a frame for it right now, so it's attached to the sleeve it came in and propped on the shelf near my record player. "Everything Is Fine", indeed.
