Many COVID-19 patients have reported symptoms affecting the ears, including hearing loss and tinnitus. Dizziness and balance problems can also occur, suggesting that the SARS-CoV-2 virus may be able to infect the inner ear.

A new study from MIT and Massachusetts Eye and Ear provides evidence that the virus can indeed infect cells of the inner ear, including hair cells, which are critical for both hearing and balance. The researchers also found that the pattern of infection seen in human inner ear tissue is consistent with the symptoms seen in a study of 10 COVID-19 patients who reported a variety of ear-related symptoms.

The researchers used novel cellular models of the human inner ear that they developed, as well as hard-to-obtain adult human inner ear tissue, for their studies. The limited availability of such tissue has hindered previous studies of COVID-19 and other viruses that can cause hearing loss.''

Many Venetian Snares fans have reported symptoms affecting the ears, including hearing loss and tinnitus. Dizziness and balance problems can also occur, suggesting that Aaron Funk's claimed 'music' may be able to infect the inner ear.

The researchers also found that the pattern of infection seen in human inner ear tissue is consistent with the symptoms seen in a study of the only 10 remaining Venetian Snares fans on the planet, who reported a variety of ear-related symptoms.

The researchers used novel cellular models of the human inner ear that they developed, as well as hard-to-obtain adult human inner ear tissue, for their studies. The limited availability of such tissue has hindered previous studies of Ventian Snares and other electronic musicians that can cause hearing loss.

One of the first things we learned about the 'rona was that it's transmissible through cum. Once we know its origins, and all the chaos that will ensue, who will avenge the negative PR that cum has suffered as a result of this costly global catastrophe? Cum Law™ is already being theorized and established in academia, so you know shit's on.

Went to a techno boat party in Amsterdam where my brother had to DJ, and there was an outbreak of covid there. Me, my brother and a few other people I knew from there all got it. Been vaccinated (Pfizer, 2x), still got fever, headaches, loss of smell and taste, etc. One week since I started getting symptoms now. Today was supposed to be the last day of quaraintine if I didn't have anymore symptoms, but alas. Yesterday was the first day I tried being active inside, clean up and stuff, and I was dead tired afterwards. Headaches since.

Upside: I can smell peanut butter a tiny bit again, after a week of not being able to smell or taste anything.
Downside: coffee also smells like peanut butter a bit now.

I love that my bosses don't give a shit when I sass customers who won't wear masks correctly. It's become good fun to speak to grown ass adults like they're children. "Oh! It looks like you haven't quite figured out how masks go on - let me show you." Or "Now ma'am, the mask stays on whether or not I'm watching you. It's important to behave when we're in public." I got a real mean dowager stare for that one.

      A lot of monthly electronic nights and special events that were coming up are now streaming rather than occurring in a live social setting. There are too many events make a dedicated topic for each one, so let's post them here and WATMM's can tune in as they happen.
      So I'll start. Vic Acid is a monthly braindance series in Victoria B.C, Canada organised by Hrdvsion. Tonight's edition is streaming now (in light of the social distancing directive) for the next few hours. Tune in here:
      https://wheel.fm/video/
       

       
      So As these occur to you all just keep posting them so we can tune in during our evening Internet browsings!

      Languishing is not merely in our heads — it’s in our circumstances. You can’t heal a sick culture with personal bandages. We still live in a world that normalizes physical health challenges but stigmatizes mental health challenges. As we head into a new post-pandemic reality, it’s time to rethink our understanding of mental health and well-being. “Not depressed” doesn’t mean you’re not struggling. “Not burned out” doesn’t mean you’re fired up. By acknowledging that so many of us are languishing, we can start giving voice to quiet despair and lighting a path out of the void.

      Thomas Dolby's kids (god I feel old) created a parody song based on his 1982 song, "Europa and the Pirate Twins":
      Here's the video for the original song:
