Pantera has new physical-distancing merch

We’re on the verge of mask-shaming, if we’re not already there. On a (necessary) trip to Costco yesterday, I couldn’t help notice that two-thirds of shoppers were wearing masks (a surprising number of the N95 variety) and at least half were sporting surgical gloves.

And while there was carefully orchestrated and enforced social-distancing measures, I’ll confess to feeling a bit weird not having a mask nor gloves. Watch a shift towards everyone wearing masks going forward.

Meanwhile, Pantera has released some new timely merch based on their 1992 album Vulgar Display of Power. Note the surgical glove, the mask, and the repurposed lyrics from the song “Walk” which go “Be yourself, by yourself / Stay away from me.”
