Read some statistics on the 30-day mortality for covid-19 patients at ICU. It was 34% for patients that first got treated in march, it dropped down to 19% in april and in may it was down to a mere 4%.
Yeah, 4% for may was actually wrong, caused by bug in the system, it was too good to be true. The actual number for may was 19% so not an actual improvement over time.

A university study over flu patients at a hospital (sahlgrenska universitetssjukhuset) found that for 435 laboratory verified flu patients during 2016-2017 that 114 of those cases got the flu at hospital. Its patients that were hospitalized for other illnesses and got the flu symptoms 48 hours or more after they were initially hospitalized.

For covid-19 they found that 10300 people working at healthcare had contracted covid-19 in mid may, which is about half of the confirmed cases in sweden. Sweden did have limited testing availability at the time but during a crisis the most important people ends up ill.

This bullshit they are pulling about releasing weekly pisses me off.

Didn’t realize they were doing that, but then wait until all the episodes are out and binge them all then?

I kinda prefer weekly releases since it allows for conversations where everyone is on the same page. Otherwise it’s just a race to the finish for some people and then nobody wants to enter into a discussion about it until they’ve finished everything. Then the conversation just ends up being very broad liked/disliked It, wonder what they’ll do next season.

I always see it as "the studio" guys know they are smarter than everyone else, and certainly can't be wrong, and the people they usually fall back on when the good creators tell them to get fucked know their job performance relies more on making nice with the guys paying for the film to get made and massaging their egos than on making good films.

Naya Rivera's body was found in the lake where she drowned. The thinking is, she had enough energy to save her kid and got swept away by the currents. Glee Curse.

What I keep finding fascinating about Hollywood is that they can have something fail badly or at least underperform and then someone can come along and figure out a way to salvage the property--so in this case from X3 to First Class--and then they eventually call up some of the people who failed badly the last time and say, "Can you make another failure kind of like the one you did before"? Those are the moment where you realize that some of the people making decisions just don't care very much whether the studio makes the most money it can.

Sorta related, while I was YouTube hopping last night, came across a CBS News video of the original Hamilton Broadway cast performing "Alexander Hamilton" for President Obama and others at the White House.  And even without the stagecraft, it was so cool.  But one of the actors looked really familiar to me.  Guy who plays a firefighter on the show Station 19 (hey, it's a guilty pleasure show!) was in the original cast.  Like, how do you go from being on Broadway in one of the biggest stage hits in years to being on a TV show?  Had to be the regular paycheck, I'm guessing.

So, having listened to the soundtrack many times, I still got a lot out of watching the filmed version of "Hamilton".

The soundtrack is good, but it's really the stagecraft that makes that show IMO.

Having seen it live in the theater twice from the cheap seats, I still really appreciate having the filmed version because now I can actually see faces.   awesome, for real

The Old Guard on Netflix. Decent action sequences, a nice queer romance, and utterly fucking predictable in narrative terms. Within twenty minutes I knew everything that was going to happen. I could have stopped the film right then and written out a script outline that would have been accurate down to the fine details.

If they make a sequel, they had better start doing some actual world-building. And also, for immortals, these guys are kind of fucking dumb.
