My dad came over to Melbourne for the formula 1 . It is not happening. Lol.
Friends in Oslo having a rough time. Confined to their homes. My mates a chef. Got layed off. Now is confined to a home he cant afford to pay for.
I think it's all a bit of hype over a flu... but the economic repercussions are going to be quite severe. This better not fuck the no class European tour...

Formula 1 is lame but I wanted to watch the Supercars support races on TV. It all kinda hinged on the one F1 crew member testing positive and his team packing up. Otherwise they'd probably have run the races with no spectators at the track. :lol:

Thats bullshit Dave. I'm really sorry. Everyone here have to cancel everything.

Tamaki sounds a bit like wattie. But dispute the self proclamations of "Were not fucking greenday..." the exploited did cancel their Aussie tour.
I bet tamaki has some.pretty solid theories about what caused Covid 19. Israel folau probably does too

Yeah who knows..maybe it's all over by late june. But tbh I doubt it. It's frustrating but whatever. Atleast I live in a wealthy country and havent lost my job. Cant complain too much.

At this point I'm hoping to keep going to one small local gig a week to support the venues that are staying open (mainly Valhalla while I'm in Welly). I'm in a good position to do it as I work from home and currently have minimal contact with anyone outside of live shows. Problem is though I've been too sick with allergies/eczema to buy beers, so it's fairly minimal support from me so far. Plus, the situation will change from week to week.

Maybe we could a release a statement like the exploited but it would read "Fuck the Exploited , were just like Fucking greenday, shows off"

Funny how things change in a day. Seen a few posts such as below, consistent with the virus being spread unknowingly by people before they show any symptoms. I'll let Jacinda close the borders and give the virus an uppercut, and then see what things are like in a week before considering going out to a gig. Seems doubtful anything of interest is gonna be organised for this weekend at short notice now anyway. edit: And more venues shutting their doors too.

A week ago here in Spain, we only talked about coronavirus. We already had some cases, but it just didn’t seem that bad. We saw the suffering in Italy and said “That won’t happen here.” Changes were not made. People still went out on the weekend, went to the gym, went to work, to school, etc. Preventing the spread of the virus was not a priority. Fast forward just 1 WEEK: Spain is now in a state of emergency. The virus is here and it is tearing through this country. I have coronavirus. My friends have coronavirus. Parents of children have coronavirus. Teachers, students, business people, researchers, politicians, bus drivers, etc. have coronavirus.

Hey dicks. Reporting in from Berlin. Have holed up in my apartment for the last week now, able to work from home thankfully, and just pottering about and DSW. Really feeling for those that can't work from home, and hoping the powers that be suspend rent and utilities. And bring in a basic income while you're at, cunce. I've been going out for a brisk walk each evening to stretch me legs, keeping distance etc. It's like a fucking ghost town out there though. I think it's likely we'll go into a full lockdown, but let's see.

Really sorry to hear your situation, Dave. Fuckin rats buzz.

Hope you're all well and taking care. Don't be one of those dummies that thinks it's just the media causing panic and blah blah blah. Shit has indeed hit the fan.

Packed the final trucks and said goodbye to the last of the 50 odd staff we have had to let go yesterday. Fingers crossed this murky stimulus package exists and can be passed on to staff. Based on what's happening, we're looking at 3 - 6 months of closure with our current cancellations and we can only really hope that everything booked after that time still goes ahead. Off to a meeting tomorrow to plan out our short term future. I'm lucky in the sense that we have been incredibly successful over recent years, so it looks like we'll endure through reduced wages and our leave entitlements.

Something like $200 million in lost wages in my industry alone, and fuck only knows how many of them will cope.

Feeling very cynical about how the labour market will be exploited horribly as businesses seek to take full advantage of a perfect situation to do so.

I know shit is going to get fucking dier, but literally the only thing that will save people is extreme support from the government. Progressive Socialism is inevitable.

There's a guy in the Welly metal scene who looks like Toecutter. Maybe he can make something of that now.

Meanwhile, I'm pretty much certain that I'm severely allergic to hand sanitiser...

Not yet, but give it a couple of months. I have my possum skin hat and slippers ready, as well as my brown raw wool jersey and brown cactus pants. God, it is all so brown!
I'll drive my Subaru outback lesbian wagon through the wastelands of Southland-Otago, stealing petrol and foraging for wild apples and potatoes, with kale fibre in my brown teeth.

Well Victoria is about to enter lockdown. I spent the remainder of my pay check on caskwine and beer, as it is unclear whether bottle shops will be considered "essential" (along with Supermarkets, green grocers and pharmacies).

I'm also unsure how long Hardware stores will be open. Once they close I'm surely out of work (as a carpenter).
As a kiwi in Aussie, we have no government assistance that applies to us in a time of unemployment. Guess it depends on the employer. I work domestic so the unions dont appeal to me, they focus on commercial primarily.
There is talk of letting us access our Superannuation early (a retirement scheme that employers pay into weeekly) which could prove nessecary.

I'm a punk, I'm used to being broke, and can live on the cheap, and alcohol being my only.addiction its a just food rent and booze I have to ensure I can afford. I also have no kids or a mortgage. So I'm lucky like that and kn not that worried really. Have a few good books to read.
But yeah shits about to get pretty real
