TV Doctors Opening Mouths Inserting Feet

First up, Dr. Phil steps out of his field of psychology to compare traffic deaths, smoking fatalities, and drownings in swimming pools to the COVID-19 pandemic. “We don’t shut down the country for that!”

We can tell the TV doctor is out of his field of expertise. None of his examples is contagious. COVID-19 is very contagious and has soared to the number one cause of death in America in a matter of weeks. Yeah, let’s lift the Stay At Home shutdown. What could go wrong?

Dr. Phil later apologized (sort of) for his choice of words.

Then there was Dr. Oz saying that if we opened the schools that might be an “appetizing” first step to getting back to normal. He cited an article in The Lancet that reported on a study done in the UK that concluded, had the UK not shut the schools, it would only have resulted in an additional 2-4% to the fatality rate. (Oz said 2-3%.)

Of course, the internet went into overdrive to put out that could mean millions of dead kids if America were to reopen the schools. Resaon.com, a libertarian website, came to Oz’s rescue by saying the numbers wouldn’t have been nearly that high. They stated it would be more like thousands of dead people of all ages, not just kids.

Oh? Well, that’s much better.

In my pedantry, I pointed out the number difference, but others on the internets gave me reason to pause and think. I realized that was still horrible and that Reason and Dr. Oz were in the wrong.

Dr. Oz apologized. He said he misspoke. Very good, but he’s still a danger for mixing sound medical advice with plenty of bullshit. He needs to go away.

No Worries, Here Comes Kenneth Copeland

Yep, here’s come televangelist Kenneth Copeland with his magic yelling and blowing to save us all from the dreaded COVID-19. He delivered a sermon to an empty church in which he yelled and blow at the pandemic.

See? Copeland’s on it everyone. (There’s even a song!)

It was pointed out by someone on the Facebook that the TV preacher looks quite a bit like a ventriloquist dummy. Hmmmm. I think they were on to something…

So, which one is the dummy?

Two Cool Things

Cool Thing #1: My friend Michael and I watched another classic baseball game on the YouTube. We watching the pitching gem Game 7 of the 1991 World Series. It was Jack Morris’ ten inning masterpiece with some 8th inning defensive magic by the Minnesota Twins. What a capper to such a great World Series.

Cool Thing #2: I’ve started watch all of the Star Wars movies now that I own them. I’m going chronologically from episodes one through three, then Solo, then Rogue One, and then episodes four through nine. A little rough start with episodes one and two, but they’re OK and it does pick up from there.

Mixed Message

On my walk through a nearby park last week, I encountered a message written in chalk on the pathway. It was a message meant to encourage everyone to keep going in the face of this pandemic.

However, the placement of the message was ill-chosen.

Well? Which should I do?

Don’t panic. Wash your hands. Stay home. Stay safe.

Don’t Compare COVID-19 To The Flu…

See? No be deal on March 1st.

Unless that comparison is to show ow much worse COVID-19 and the virus that causes it are much, much worse than the flu. For one thing, the flu can’t be combated by vaccination. At this time, COVID-19 cannot..

I spotted a very illustrative gif to help drive that notion home. You can find it here.

There is one caveat remarking the gif. I would like there to have been source citations for the information presented in the chart. The big number (1,842) given for the one day death toll for COVID-19 does sound about right, but I couldn’t confirm it. I did do some math with the daily average death number caused by Influenza/Pneumonia (153) and it seems accurate to me.

What a difference a month and one week makes.

One thing made clear in that chart is that a world without just one specific vaccine can result in the horror of this pandemic. What do you think a world with no vaccines would look like?

Conspiracy Theorists Are Concerned About A Vaccine For COVID-19

Are you aware the Bill Gates wants to use the vaccine for COVID-19, when one is developed, to put a chip in us to track us. Probably so the government can finally come and take our guns! Wake up, sheeple!

The person who posted the article and commented that the sheeple will get in line to get their chips and another commenter are people I went to school with. Sigh.

Dr Drew Apologizes

World famous physician and advice giver Dr. Drew Pinksy was wrong. Early in COVID-19’s advance through America, Dr. Drew publicly decried the media’s “over-hyping” the dangerous of this disease. He believed it was just another flu. His objections were jumped on by those who wished we could just live life as we always had. He’s a doctor after all. He knows what he’s talking about despite all the many, many other doctors who were sounding the dire warnings that this coronavirus was different and very dangerous.

But with more evidence becoming clear to him, Dr. Drew realized he was wrong. And he apologized publicly. His denial has done some damage, but it’s good to see he was able to change his position. He didn’t double down.

A Dimland Pedantic Moment: Why Teachers?

I have the utmost respect for teachers. I really do. Their job is vitally important, because an educated populace is absolutely vital for a strong society. But, when I saw this sign in the drive-up window of a local McDonald’s, I couldn’t help by ask, “Why teachers?”

I can understand, being that this is in response to COVID-19, why medical professionals and first responders would be included. Those folks are on the front lines. They put themselves at risk of being infected by this dangerous virus. So to reward them with a free sandwich or beverage makes sense. But teachers aren’t on the front lines. Like many Americans, they’re working from home, teaching their students online.

What about grocery store and drug store workers? Farmers? Truckers? Trash collectors? Postal workers? Janitors?

Cool Thing: Janitors Get A Little Love

Sure, we (I work for a janitorial service, both as the office manager and a cleaner) don’t warrant a free sandwich from McDonald’s, but janitors did get a nod from Google. Google did a week’s worth of thank you’s in their Google Doodles to those workers in America who are considered essential and aren’t sheltering at home. And they gave thanks to custodians and sanitation workers.

You’re welcome, Google. Can you talk to McDonald’s about getting us a free sandwich?

Two Great Moments In Customer Service

First up was my call to Target’s customer service to see if I could get any late charges waived from being two days late on a credit card payment. I had never been late on a payment before. Target waived the late fee (a fact I neglected to mention on the show), but before that I had an interesting experience getting to speak to a customer service rep. It was actually amusing and a nice human moment.

The second tale was of my wife’s run in with a mobile notary public that just couldn’t be bothered. She was also quite spendy. The tale continued with an experience of great timing involving a cell phone call, a UPS store, and a gas-powered leaf blower.

My Quaratine Film Festival List

Lots of requests for lists have been making the rounds on Facebook during this Stay At Home response to the pandemic. Some of the lists were big years ago, but, with people bored at home, those lists are back in fashion.

A list that seems to be new, however, caught my eye. I thought what the hell? And I filled it out. It’s a list of movies for a special film festival for those who are stuck at home.

The movies I picked aren’t necessarily my favorite of the given genres, but I thought they would be good for such a festival.

Quarantine Film Fest. You can only pick 1 film for each genre. Here are my picks:

1 Western Movie: True Grit (2010)
1 Monster Movie: Frankenstein (1931)
1 Fantasy Movie: The Wizard of Oz
1 Action Movie: Raiders of the Lost Ark
1 Thriller Movie: The Hunt for Red October
1 Horror Movie: Legend of Hell House
1 Slasher Movie: Halloween (1978)
1 Drama Movie: The Maltese Falcon (1941)
1 Science Fiction Movie: Blade Runner
1 Comedy Movie: Young Frankenstein
1 Musical Movie: The Kids Are Alright (1979)
1 Romantic Movie: Casablanca
1 Independent Movie: Frank
1 War Movie: The Dirty Dozen
1 Bond Movie: The Man with the Golden Gun
1 Superhero Movie: The Dark Knight
1 Documentary: Amazing Journey: The Story of The Who
1 Cop Movie: L.A. Confidential
1 Prison Movie: Papillon (1973)
1 Prison of War Movie: The Bridge on the River Kwai
1 Animated Movie: Toy Story
1 Gangster Movie: Goodfellas
1 Foreign Language Movie: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
1 Disaster Movie: The Towering Inferno
1 Hitchcock Movie: North By Northwest
1 Kubrick Movie: The Shining
1 Tarantino Movie: Pulp Fiction
1 Spielberg Movie: Jaws
1 Coen Brothers Movie: O Brother, Where Art Thou?
1 Star Wars Movie: The Last Jedi
1 Star Trek Movie: First Contact
1 Mystery Movie: To Catch A Thief
1 Film Noir Movie: Memento

The initial list was 17 movies. I added ten and someone who commented on my thread added another six, so the total is 33 movies.

Don’t panic. Wash your hands. Stay home. Stay safe.

That Small Percentage Is A Really Big Number

I started by giving a little update on life in Minnesota after our first week of Stay At Home. It’s been ok, I guess. Actually, it’s not very different for me because I still head into work each day pretty much just as before.

Then there was this graphic (left), which was shared on Facebook by a friend of mine who appears to be pining for a life without responsibilities to others. Oh, that may be unfair. He’s a decent man. He cares about others. He just doesn’t understand how terribly callous this statement is.

First off, the statement is missing the proper context. When I first looked at it I thought the 98.54% was referring to the population of the United States in total. Even making that mistake was a good way to demonstrate how a small percentage, in this case 1.46%, is a really big number. When considering 327.2 million people, the current estimated population of the USA, a 1.46% non-survival rate means 4.78 million people will die.

The White House is predicting horrifically large numbers of people will die due to COVID-19 (100,000 to 240,000) before this is over, but not as high as the graphic had me thinking at first. The graphic is missing a clause to put its information in context. It needs to start with, “Of those who develop COVID-19…” Make sense now?

However, to Pollyanna this pandemic by saying most of us will be just fine, is to promote acting irresponsibly. We each need to proceed as though we are already infected and act accordingly to not infect others. And would you rather come out the other end of this crisis realizing we all over-reacted or that we didn’t do enough?

Cool Thing #1: TPT’s Documentary About First Avenue

I used to be cool. In those days of my being cool, I used to hang out at the legendary nightclub First Avenue & 7th Street Entry. It was and still is a great place to see bands play, although I haven’t been there in years.

Our local PBS station produced a documentary on that club from its ambitious desire to be a great live music venue, to the disco years, to world fame provided by Prince’s movie Purple Rain, to near permanent closure, and to its success today. The documentary, called First Avenue: Closer To The Stars, is part of TPT’s series Minnesota Experience.

Cool Thing #2: A Picture Of Dwayne

Even though I was really hoping I would have sneaked into a corner of one of the photographs used in the First Avenue documentary, I was excited to see my old art school classmate Dwayne, that’s him in the circle, made it into one of them. I haven’t see Dwayne in years. I hope he’s well. He and this photograph are pretty cool!

Back When I Was Cool…

During my time hanging out at First Avenue, when I would be there every Tuesday night for Club Degenerate, a night of the best alternative music of the day, there would occasionally be cameos by local bands. One Club Degenerate featured a much longer than cameo appearance of Prince protegee band The Family and I was too miffed that my music night was being interrupted to realize the band was not bad at all.

According to Wikipedia, The Family only performed live once before lead singer St. Paul Peterson quit. One show? If Wikipedia is correct, that was the show at which I was miffed.

Cool Thing #3: VH1’s 25 Years Of Punk

Before turning my attention to the surprisingly good VH1 documentary on Punk Rock, I went on a rant about how disappointed I was with a PBS documentary series on Rock & Roll, in particular the episode dedicated to Punk. It was close to an hour long and it did give a thorough look at the beginnings of the movement in New York and then in the UK. Nearly the entire documentary was dedicated to that era which ended with Blondie’s Heart of Glass.

If it had ended there I might have been fine, but in the last five minutes came Nirvana. That set me off. Sure, American radio didn’t pick up on Punk until Nirvana, but the documentary gives the impression that there was nothing between Heart of Glass and Smells Like Teen Spirit. I was appalled.

The VH1 documentary 25 Years of Punk, on the other hand, gives that decade PBS missed a fair shake. And that makes VH1 so much cooler than PBS.

A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment: The Beatles Vs The Velvet Underground

A contributor to the VH1 Punk documentary, co-founder of the fanzine Punk, Legs McNeil, dropped a clanker when attempting to make a profound comment comparing the Beatles to The Velvet Underground:

“It’s amazing to think at the same time The Beatles were singing I Wanna Hold Your Hand, the Velvets come out with Heroin.”

It would be amazing if it was true. The Velvet Underground released the song Heroin in 1967. The Beatles released I Wanna Hold Your Hand in 1964 and they had stopped touring in 1966. The Beatles hadn’t been singing that song for a long time before the Velvets released their song about such a taboo topic.

I suggested a different song that Legs could have gone with that would have been accurate and still made his point. Had I been the producer of that documentary I wouldn’t have kept Legs’ erroneous statement in the final cut.

Cool Thing #4: Three Dudes Reacting To The Who

Watching the nightly national news is a horror show these days. Because all the major national TV news organizations are located in New York, New York’s problems tend to get over-amplified. However, in the case of COVID-19, New York really is experiencing the most horrifying effects of this pandemic. I watched some of that news and felt as though the world was crumbling and I needed something to lift my mood.

That’s when I found Jamel_AKA_Jamal and Andy & Alex, two YouTube channels that feature videos of these fellows reacting to songs they are hearing for the first time. Of course, I went for songs by The Who first and started off watching each react to the arena classic Won’t Get Fooled Again. Check them out here and here.

There is some skepticism about whether these reactions are all genuine and it may be true that some are faking hearing the songs for the first time. However, if the fellows I watched are faking it, they are the finest actors I’ve ever seen. Hell, Jamel_AKA_Jamal when he starts listening to WGFA realizes he had heard some of the song before, he just can’t place it. In a later reaction video, we learn he heard part of the song in the theme to one of the many CSI television shows.

Regardless, watching these dudes discover songs that I know so well was so cool and a delight. And it was just tonic I needed.

Don’t panic. Wash your hands. Stay home. Stay safe.

A COVID-19 Update

I gave an update on how the COVID-19 was affecting things on my end. Minnesota’s governor Tim Walz has issued an emergency executive order that puts the state on a Stay At Home status. He has asked Minnesota businesses that aren’t considered essential to shut down or have their employees work from home and Minnesotans to stay home as much as possible.

I work in janitorial which is considered essential, so I still have work. However, some of our customers have closed their offices and are working from home, so we have had to make some adjustments. I’ll still be going into the office each day and cleaning my buildings, doing what I can to disinfect commonly touched surfaces.

Governor Tim Walz has been very impressive in his handling of this crisis, unlike some American presidents I could mention.

And, please, don’t compare this to the flu.

No Baseball

There are many aspects of this COVID-19 crisis that are troubling. There’s the high infection rate, the high mortality rate, the effect on the world economy, and there’s no baseball. Last Thursday would have been opening day, but this crisis has put the game on hold.

I miss baseball already.

That’s where YouTube steps in. There are full games archived on the video streaming site! So far I have watched Game 1 of the 1988 World Series between the Oakland A’s and the Los Angeles Dodgers featuring the miraculous Kirk Gibson game-winning home run game. I’ve seen the home run many times, but I never watched the entire game. My friend Michael, a Dodgers fan, joined me through texting in watching as well.

Yesterday, I watched Game 5 of the 1987 ALCS between the Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins. That was the game in which the lowly Twins defeated the mighty Tigers to advance to the World Series for the first time since 1965. Spoilers! The Twins won that World Series.

Watching those games gave me a feeling that life is normal again, at least for a little while.

A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment: Call It Physical Distancing

Speaking of my friend Michael, he pointed out that calling what people throughout the world are doing by keeping apart from each other and staying home social distancing is wrong. We should be calling it physical distancing. World leaders aren’t telling people to cut off all contact with others, to become hermits, they are telling us to avoid physical contact and closeness in order to curtail the spread of this invisible enemy.

We can still make use of our phones. We can Skype or Facetime. We can text and email. We can shout to each other from across the street. We can still be sociable, but from a safe distance.

And, I have noticed that there has been a move to switch the phrase to the more accurate one.

A Tale Of Toilet Paper

Sure, we could be considered part of the problem, but the company I work for is a janitorial company and we buy toilet paper in bulk to supply our customers. Toilet paper has become scarce due to panic. A couple Wednesdays ago, the boss’s wife told him to get out there that day to get toilet paper, despite the fact that we had planned to go the next day. She insisted and he did what he was told.

It’s a good thing the boss listened to his wife.

Crashing By Design

Ok, it wasn’t by design, but I wanted to use a Pete Townshend song title. It was by accident that I crashed and fell over my shopping cart in the parking lot of the supermarket. It was one of those smaller carts so its center of gravity made it so that the sudden stop sent me head over heels.

I was not drunk!

A Dimland Radio ARGH!

“Paul Shaffer!!! Oh, my god! I’m so shocked, surprised, and excited!!! Yaaaaaaahhhhhhhh! I’ve never been so excited in all my life! Paul Shaffer!!”

I can’t stand the Fox show The Masked Singer. I don’t watch it, but somehow it still finds a way to invade my life. ARGH!

A Cool Thing

The Colorado Symphony gathered together through the magic of the internets to play Ode To Joy. It’s beautiful. And it’s very cool.

Stay Safe!

Don’t panic. Wash your hands. Stay home. Stay safe.

These are scary times. But we are in these times together.

10 Years Of Dimland Radio

It was March 13, 2010 at 11:00pm. It was Saturday night. It was live. A somewhat tentative sounding 45 year-old me started doing a weekly show. And, though I no longer do the show live (I do it live to laptop with no editing), each week (well, most weeks) I have managed to put a little show together. In total, I have done 467 shows, 152 of which, including this one, are available through iTunes, Podbean, and very likely whichever podcatcher you use.

Dimland Radio is Z Talk Radio’s longing running show. The skeptic has outlasted them all. I intend to keep doing a show even during these uncertain times.

So, thanks to station owner Scotty Rorek and to my small but dedicated core of listeners.

Some Clarification And A Visit To Atheist Corner

On the last new show and in the show notes, I said this strain of coronavirus is called COVID-19. This is incorrect. The virus is called SARS-CoV-2. The disease this virus causes is called COVID-19. Sorry for the goof. I’m learning all this as we go.

I did some grocery shopping recently. I’ve noticed that people seem nicer to each other. More polite. There seems to be an understanding that we are all in this together.

I did have a moment to stop by atheist corner, a moment I kept to myself at the time. A nice older couple was behind me in the check out line. As we were bagging our groceries the husband said to me that we need to put our faith in God.

“Oh, really?” I thought to myself. “Why would we put our faith in an omnipotent god who allow this to happen?”

On the show, I also ranted a little about how certain evangelicals use these sorts of crisis events to say it’s a judgement from God against the world because of a group of people they hate. It’s odd how child raping priests are never claimed to be the Big Guy’s motivation for visiting terrible events upon His creation.

Reviewing Dirty Harry

Malpaso Productions/Warner Bros.

These are troublesome times. I thought I’d keep the show light by doing mini-reviews of the first four of the Dirty Harry movies.

I recently purchased a four-pack DVD set for the bargain price of 10 bucks that included the first four of the five Dirty Harry films starring Clint Eastwood. The movies in the four pack are Dirty Harry (1971), Magnum Force (1973), The Enforcer (1976), and Sudden Impact (1983).

For an even mini-er review they go like this: Really Good to Pretty Good to OK to Pretty Silly.

But for 10 bucks, I felt lucky.

A Dimland Radio Pedantic Moment: What’s With The Dog?

In the silly Sudden Impact, an old friend of Harry’s pops up for a visit. They hadn’t seen each other in a long time and the old friend decides it would be a great idea to surprise his old buddy with a pet dog. Only in movies, especially ones as silly as this one, would a character thinks a surprise gift of a dog would be a good idea.

The dog is only in the picture to provide lame comic relief and a meet cute between the dirty one and the revenge killer he’s hunting down.

The pedantry? Well, it was clear that two dogs were used to play “Meathead” in the film. It was clear because one was obviously male and the other was very obviously female. In fact, it was a female dog that had recently had a litter of puppies. If you’re gonna used two dogs, make sure they’re both the same gender.

Better yet, judging by how pointless it was, don’t have the dog at all. Find some other way to have the two characters meet. Do some writing.

Two Cool Things

Cool Thing #1: Google posted a Doodle that is an animated video demonstrating the proper hand-washing technique. I would add that it is important to dry your hands thoroughly after washing. Otherwise it’s cool.

Cool Thing #2: At the same time, Google celebrated Dr. Ignaz Semmelweis (whose name I likely butchered), a nineteenth century physician who was first to recognize the importance of hand-washing in the prevention of spreading disease. He wasn’t treated well at the time, but now we understand how cool he really was.

More on both of these cool things can be found here.

Stay Safe!

So far my home state of Minnesota has not been shut down, but I am anticipating big changes as far as my job goes to happen soon. I’m practicing social distancing as much as I can, while still going to work. However, if the state doesn’t deeply or completely curtail my work, I think our customers will.

These are scary times. But we are in these times together.
