Anyone suffering from wildfire smoke this week: You can make a really cheap air purifier by taping a HEPA filter (from the furnace section of a hardware store) to a box fan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kH5APw_SLUU
I made one last summer, and it really helps. And it's cheap enough that you can make several if you need to clean the air in a larger space.
You might want to tape the filter to the back of the fan (instead of the front, as in the video), so it stays better.
ugh I really want to go outside for a walk but I also really want to not die
[Her (2014], dir. Spike Jonze, ★★★★☆]
"During the course of this film, there were many unfortunate happenings within the theater; one fellow patron had a cough, another had forgotten to silence her cellphone. But all in all, this was an enjoyable experience which I would highly recommend."
"After quite a lot of time of this – I am not sure for how long it went, but it was enjoyable for as long as it continued – we were finally greeted with the opening of the show for which we were there."
"After we had been fully saturated with these delights, a new surprise occurred - the room's lights dimmed, and as the curtains along the screen drew back, we had another surprise - not our film of choice, but helpful reminders of other films that were showing!"
"Eventually we found our way into the seating area of the room on which our fantastical voyage of delight and whimsy was to be shown, and we were greeted with a delightful show of trivial questions and advertisements for local automotive services."
"A young ruddy-cheeked boy of not twelve or thirteen appeared beside us, tears in his eyes, asking after his mother. We did not know, unfortunately, who his mother was or else we would have helped him to find her."
"After this inconceivable delay we finally made our way to the concession stand, where we discovered that they had many varieties of popping-corn and various sugary confections that we could enjoy over the course of the next two hours. We had so many choices, so many decisions!"
"We arrived to find that the ticket-printing machine was out of service, so we eagerly walked up to the human ticket line, which was unfortunately long due to the machine's dysfunction, perhaps the result of an overexuberant child having stuck a wad of gum into its card slot."
Imagine if movie reviews were written the way recipe blogs are.
"One frosty Sunday morning my aunt Janice and I decided to stop in at our local cineplex in order to enjoy the fresh air and the latest theatrical jaunt by Spike Jonze."
