covid, useful resource for explanation 

this is an intuitive simulation and visualization of how social distancing helps to slow the spread of diseases like covid-19 washingtonpost.com/graphics/20 (maybe helpful for sharing with people who don't seem to get it)

May I draw your attention (and your $7) to this amazing electronic compilation benefiting frontline medical staff in Wuhan. dcyy.bandcamp.com/album/home-f

Another good cover is Haim’s cover of Tame Impala’s ‘‘Cause I’m a Man’ (technically a remix but they completely redo the vocals, which is why it’s good). youtube.com/watch?v=3J2I2huV6l

Show thread

Literally every time I see the abbreviation ‘HDD’ I say ‘hard drive drive’ in my head.

Other favorite covers:

• Pet Shop Boys — Always on My Mind (youtube.com/watch?v=wDe60CbIag)

• Scissor Sisters — Comfortably Numb (youtube.com/watch?v=SqIQzNNK9d)

• Flock of Dimes & Sylvan Esso — Don’t Dream It’s Over (youtube.com/watch?v=wqOGc9ejEX)

Annnnd some absolutely perfect covers I never want to hear again: José González’s ‘Heartbeats’ and Israel Kamakawiwoʻole’s ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ and Gary Jules’ ‘Mad World.’ 😅

The band called Abe Vigoda (who were terrific) covered Stevie Nicks’ ‘Wild Heart’ and it’s one of my favorite covers: youtube.com/watch?v=Yhlf_GZAgk

homelessness 

The Montavilla Emergency Warming Shelter is a low-barrier overnight shelter for our unhoused neighbors when it’s freezing out here in Portland. It’s organized by queer/trans folks, focused on harm-reduction and trauma-informed mutual aid, and it provides a bed and hot meals on freezing nights.

I volunteer for shifts when we’re open, and I just made this website too: mewscollective.org

If you live here and want to get involved, please let me know! We need volunteers. ❤️

I just logged in to my bot accounts (@soundcloudsaid and @obliquestions) for the first time in months and discovered a handful of cute replies and kind words. Was quite nice to discover! I do wish I could see it more easily without having to log out and switch accounts…
