13 Feet of Kraftwerk

13 Feet of Kraftwerk

Listening to: KRAFTWERK - Trans Europe Express
Rule: Don’t change a litterbox until Willy switches to a different one.

A article in The Guardian this morning tweaked a bit of a Kraftwerk binge. Revival of Trans Europe Express ‘key to EU’s carbon neutrality also reminded me of past train trips. Mostly in Europe but also a memorable one from Thunder Bay to Calgary after a stint of tree planting. There were half a dozen of us, many engaged in crafts or reading. I spent a lot of my time with a mutual crush (alas we both had a partner back home). It was really rather romantic.

Also in the news were a few articles relating the (welcome) news that various governments policies towards the pandemic are finally beginning to relate to the actual science. A spring 2020 article on particle transmission stated “safe social distancing” should be thirteen feet. Indeed “twelve feet” is finally a guideline in the province of Ontario and is now being put forward in France. The article also reminds us that “home made non-medical” masks are only 70% effective on average (properly fitted medical up to 95%). So distancing of six feet should be mandatory unless medical masks are worn. As they already should be in workplaces where staff cannot maintain distancing.

Listening to: Still Little Fingers - My Dark Places

Please be good.

When infection numbers were at a lower level, we were able to keep filming bands play at a local venue, even though an audience was direly missed.

But “the thing” has shut us down. Even with precautions, the numbers are too high to assemble people. Entertainers can’t entertain these days unless they’re backed with significant $$.

The longer this goes on the longer we’ll have to live on corporate swill less.
