The Corona Chronicles – Day 16

or: There are people who have money and people who are rich Yesterday was Monday and that means, we have a new colour. Week IV and we get blue, literally I think … Society I was wondering. In peace time (we are at war, aren’t we?) whenever proposing to tax the rich a bit more, it takes like three seconds until several politicians, entrepreneurs and media outlets bring on the same...

Was Ich Liebe – Rammstein

Acceptable live version for one of my favourite songs from the latest long player. I love how Till can approach also beautiful things in a dark manor. Not sure if it’s the right time to promote a Rammstein song as my song of the day while Till is heavily criticised for a rather old poem where he described basically a rapist from the first-person perspective … My 2ct’s –...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 15

or: No weekend, all weakened There was a Friday right? Yes, I think there was. And a Monday, that happens definitely too often, weekends followed by Mondays … Society The mask discussion gains momentum. First people scream already to make it mandatory whenever you are in public. As written before, I’m not against it but you only can force people to do something if they can fulfil it...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 14

Society You now read the first stories about the elderlies giving up their right for treatment, dying deliberately in the hope that their sacrifice will save another, younger person. While I might do the same if I would look back on a long and good lived life, I just don’t want to read such stuff. I think it’s horrible that rich countries like the ones we’re living in are...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 13

or: Bad temper is its own scourge Wednesday my mood got worse, only topped by Thursday. I was not in the mood of writing anything, also thinking that maybe once per week could be also enough. But now, that this is on my to-do list I don’t have another choice … Society Judging the lockdown from where I live (a rather touristic area) it works quite well, cause there is no tourism...

The Man Who Sold The World – Nirvana

Every time I see images from that time, I keep thinking “what a beautiful, broken soul …” I remember it was weird for me when I turned 28, getting older than Kurt ever got. That’s already seven years ago now … This cover by David Bowie was always one of my favorites. The whole Unplugged session is pure magic. Still dearly missed. We passed upon the stairWe spoke of...

Shrinking Universe – Muse

Just popped in my head. Every similarity with the current situation is highly coincidentally … Cast your eye tears on to meAnd I’ll show you what you really needGive too much attentionAnd I’ll reflect your imperfectionsCan’t you see it’s overBecause you’re the god of a shrinking universe Purposeless survivalNow there’s nothing left to die forSo...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 12

or: A mask tells us more than a face Tuesday I was still in a good mood but it worsen by Wednesday, which is the reason I’m quite behind again but I made some notes … Society Basically there is only one topic this week: masks. Yay or Nay? At the beginning the smart people said (and thus basically all media), no we don’t need to wear them in public, they are actually quite...

The Corona Chronicles – Day 11

or: Reports of my assimilation are greatly exaggerated. Week III in lockdown lies ahead and my mood is better. But that’s not that unusual actually – I’m mostly in a good mood Mondays. Something new starts, no one cares anymore about the last week and it’s like many other things are possible. Corona hasn’t changed that yet. Except working from home, my Mondays are...
