Is Live Music Making A Comeback? in Solo and Duo Acts Posted July 8 18 hours ago, Notes_Norton said: So perhaps if we started being civilized and compassionate about other people and did our best to stop the spread of this disease like other countries, perhaps we could get back to gigging sooner? Insights and incites by Notes So there you have it. If you gig, you're being uncivilized and not compassionate. People whose propaganda conditions them to believe civilization will be destroyed by a disease with a mortality rate of less than .5% (continually revised further down as many are discovered to be asymptomatic), to be terrified of a world dripping with coronavirus, can't stand that not everyone else is similarly conditioned, that not everyone thinks that a really really long, really really safe (really really boring) life is the ideal. With the grand prize filling up your Depends in a nursing home in the last years of your superannuated existence. There's an alternative mindset, such as that of people who willingly accept risk- police officers, fireman, athletes, the military, construction workers, people not well represented on musicians internet forums (why is that?) that take precautions and don't take unnecessary risks- but don't let fear keep them from going about their lives. That's what we're all going to have to do. Genuinely sorry that things are so bad in FLA.
