Re: COVID-19 coronavirus

My heart goes out to Africa and South Africa as now another mutation has evolved as is the concern for my mom and aunt that are in the danger zone just because of age and smoking of course but that they have known their whole lives. It is in Belgium and most certainly the Netherlands as people have...

Re: (Yet Another) Currently Being Pissed Off By...

Hmmmmmm so they weren't sold out of standing tickets after all; I've just bought a couple. But the ticketmaster site made me think they were sold out; they didn't show up as available until about an hour after tickets went on sale.

I still don't understand it but I'm a lot less annoyed.

Re: Bullying

A while before I left he saw me wearing a red ribbon on World AIDS Day and asked "why are you wearing a poof ribbon?" In retrospect I should have walked out on him there and then.

Anyway that's all in the past now and I was just sharing my story in solidarity. We all stand against the bullies!

Pretty f*cked off by rip-off arena tickets. I was looking at tickets for the Ghost tour next year and the Manchester Arena gig was already sold out of standing tickets when tickets went on sale today at 9am. How can they sell out before they were even on sale? And I'll be f*cked if I'm going to spen...

IMO some people are too quick to go straight to "his voice is shot" based on nothing much more than crappily-recorded live videos.

Re: Bullying

Sometimes I think the word bullying doesn't seem to be enough. It's so rooted in childhood playground antics that I feel it sort of loses heft. Psychological abuse is more accurate but I guess a bit more of a mouthful. Yeah I was also bullied at school. I know what you're saying but in my experienc...

Re: Bullying

I've also had experience with workplace bullying. It's a miserable experience. A bully can make you doubt everything about yourself. I started to doubt my ability to do the job. I couldn't sleep. Looking back now the cnut was actually making me ill. It's a bit hard to stand up for yourself when it's...

Re: NEW SONGS!

I'm not 100% convinced by the "von's voice is shot" thing. There are places in the recent books where it was mentioned that in a studio setting, even as far back as the early 80s, his "singing" voice was very quiet anyway; he virtually whispers into the microphone. I think that he may be struggling ...

Re: COVID-19 coronavirus

it just occurred to me, they won't turn me down for my booster because it's less than 3 weeks since I had the flu jab will they? They still let me have my booster on Sunday. In terms of side-effects, I'm doing a lot better than the first two Covid shots; a bit of a sore arm and that's it. No fever ...
