Hey, don't be knockin' disco...

It occurred to me I've been enduring the lockdown with music more than anything else. I have gone from forty to about 200 playlists on Spotify, rediscovering albums from my youth (which stretches back to pre-Beatles), even making a sentimental one for my parent's music. This goes back to when people put a stack of LPs on the turntable. Music was always playing the house. Movie soundtracks from the 60s were big, and if I hear Laura's Theme from Dr. Zhivago or Shirley Bassey's Goldfinger today I'm instantly transported back to my thirteen-year-old self sitting in the family room after dinner (classical music only for dinner).

Every time someone says freak out, I think of this now.

 :eek: :icon_eek:  :icon_eek: ... Oh wow, yeah, I owe you an apology for putting that in your head. Sorry about that.
... the refrain is kinda appropriate as a global theme song right now though 🤣

a lot of other people are going to freak out.

And now I've got that song stuck in my head.  :dizzy

What song? I'm guessing not a good one since you did a dizzy emoji

I suppose recourse measures are limited to elections

Provided they aren't suspended. It's a real possibility.

That would be the death knell for the U.S. 😳😔
The presidential election wasn't even delayed during the Civil War and that was a heckuva lot more of a national threat and tragedy than covid19. A ravaged, war-torn land with violent deaths of 620,000 in a pop of 31 million (the equivalent of 6.6 million people dying today) and they still honored the most fundamental civil process and duty. So if they suspend the election over this me and a lot of other people are going to freak out.

Pandemic, earthquake, sharknado.

Not to mention the heartbreak of psoriasis.

Very sad.

Quote from the article:  In interviews with the paper, eight members who attended the rehearsal said no one showed any signs of being ill or even coughed or sneezed. They said everyone avoided physical contact and brought their own sheet music.

But one local health official believes it may have been the act of singing that led to the virus’ spread.

"I think singing with a wide-open mouth and projection of your voice can certainly cause droplet spread of the illness,” Dr. Howard Leibrand with Skagit Public Health told Q13 FOX. “We know that two people face to face in conversation can contaminate each other.”

Yeah, sad. Choir singing, a thing supposed to be of joy, leading to tragedy.
