Yeah well we have NASA, we'll just go all Reagan's Star Wars and laser y'all to death from space. It'll take us no time to send up weapons and I'm sure the US is just waiting for a chance to deploy them. Now is our time!!!

What you are all forgetting is that District 6, with whom the extended Bontee clan has formed an international alliance, has DETROIT ROCK CITY, as well as Chicago and most of the Great Lakes, therefore most of the fresh water. Gettin' thirsty? *diabolical laughter*

That would be great turned into a fuller country/bluegrass number, @vonbontee.

@Beatlebug, Your guitar playing was mightly impressive and I love the video where the sun rays hide your face. Very artistic.

My hands are not impressed with all the washing I've been doing. No matter how much moisturiser I put on them, they're having none of it!

I'm lathering the moisturiser on as often as I remember due to how rubbishy the skin can get. Finally getting better and looking more normal.

A little clarification and correction.

After many hours of tense negotiations, fall-outs, tears and heartfelt apologies (all from at least 300 miles from each other, can't get too close), Joe and the mods have agreed that it's fine to post political news if they are on-topic and not in the form of a rant. The thread is and will remain a catch-all for Covid 19. If you wish to post on how much Trump is an idiot or an in-depth essay detailing how Boris is the saviour to all of humanity please use another thread (as is currently occurring, tho not on those topics - see the 'Philosophy' thread). My own moved post obviously fell into that and was rightly moved.

Apologies if this seems too pointless or serious a post or we came across as too restrictive at times but we are trying to do what is best for the forum, it's why we are open to any feedback and will assess issues that folk have with what we do.

As said a good few time, this thread was ultimately created to be a support thread during these hard times and reading pages of arguments doesn't fit into that.

Thank you for reading and apologies for the coma you are falling into.

'Politics' would be too specific, imagine lots of posts discussing laws being passed in great detail and rating the latest edition of PMQ each Wednesday.

I think the Philosophy thread should be renamed 'Philosophy & Politics', and maybe something in there about debate as well, since it seems to be the catch-all for non musical related disagreements on the forum...

Thanks yourself (and nice job backatcha) for alerting us to this, bb! I wouldn't have been able to manage a full song - I find it incredibly hard to remember words and vocalize them (I guess it's technically "singing") while strumming, unless the vocal melody exactly mirrors the chords (that clip was Take 4). But it's for a charitable cause, and Dhani invited us to contribute as little as a single line or verse, so...john-lennon-salute_gif

A bluegrass version of this song would be a great idea indeed, meanmistermustard, as long as someone much more skilled than myself takes it on...apple01

Change that to perfect for self-quarantine, I get the feeling George would be just flourishing right nowa-hard-days-night-john-6This just gave me an idea - if anyone here writes fanfic and is bored, I think it would be pretty entertaining to depict what would happen if The Beatles were quarantined, Help ! style...

I don't write fanfic on a regular basis; however, I find this prompt very entertaining and I'll gladly try to cook something up after I finish writing these essays! john-lennon-salute_gif

Thoughts are starting to meander throughout my mind about the antics that they would get up to....however before they'd do anything they'd probably pass around a joint since they have an excuse to just sit around and get higha-hard-days-night-george-10

Hidey ho, ladies, gents, boys and squirrels- tonight's picture is 'Paul McCartney Really Is Dead- The Last Testament of George Harrison '. Having had a 30-second scroll through it, it looks to be a great laugh so I'd really recommend if you're free in 80 minutes to go over to Discord. You don't have to download anything or any craic like that, it's all provided for you.

I hope to see you all there! And feel free to PM @Starr Shine? or @The Hole Got Fixed for the link. We'll have a funny morning/afternoon/evening.
