Revisiting 'Two Weeks' in the Times of Social Isolation and 14 Day Quarintines?

I noticed in my blog stats that someone had been reading/watching (maybe?) my old post from 2012 about
Johnny Abegg's film 'Two Weeks'  -
I hadn't yet been to Tasmania in 2012, but I did go down there in 2016 for a week, so watching the 23 minute director's cut version once again from a 2021 perspective made the film even more relevant, considering that 14 days/two weeks is the Covid 19 quarantine period if I were to leave my state of Queensland
(and that's if I was allowed to) to visit Tassie this year .
Not that I had visited the part of Tassie that Johnny camped in for two lonely weeks.
And as much as I like living alone in my home with all the mod cons, two weeks in the Tassie wilderness by myself in a tent would scare the crap out of me I'm sure.   
It's hard to believe that film turned 10 years old this year, but seems even more relevant in the times we are living in now.
The Official Australian Covid 19 Death Toll hit 2022 on December 2nd, 2021?

The Official Australian Covid 19 Death Toll hit 2022 on December 2nd, 2021?

I was listening to the Coronavirus Daily Update Podcast, which is the official podcast of the Australian Government website on Thursday through Apple Podcasts and it was said that the official Australian death toll had reached 2022?! 
Not an auspicious number going into the new year I thought. 

Owls and Aliens Pareidolia ... and Dr. WHO?

I saw a post yesterday that Mike Clelland (the Owl Guy) posted at his 'Hidden Experience' blog about owls and alien figures that seem to be in the wood grain patterns on his door, and I couldn't help thinking back to when I was a kid and thought I could see "monsters" and aliens in the pattern of the opening credits to the old black and white Dr. WHO shows.
Back then there was no video players to record the shows and freeze frame them to see if you saw what you thought you saw.
Not that I was looking for owls back then ... or greys.
Grey alien?
Owl in flight with a grey alien face above it?
I wonder what the opposite of pareidolia is where say instead of seeing just spider webs hanging behind an artist there are actually owls drawn into the spiderwebs by that artist?-)  
And the nature of Nature is that somethings wish to remain hidden and will go out of their way to do so by using nature to do it.
