Today (and every first Friday of the month) https://bandcamp.com/ will be waiving its fees to help artists impacted by COVID-19. You should grab a few albums to keep those people going (if you are able).

What are y'all listening to during the pandemic?

    im listening to my boss barking orders. Am I right, fellas?

    This guy gets it.

    (For real my boss used to be a restaurant chef and left because he couldn't deal with the stress and yelling. He is the nicest boss i've had)

    I'm listening to TaySway and Shakira, and occasionally I'll put on a genre playlist to change it up

    I did try ICP out of respect for them cancelling the next Gathering, but I didn't care for them

    I mostly listen to vidyagaem music and what the youths call dadrock, and I didn't need any pandemic to do it.

    It was that somehow, from within the derelict-horror, they had learned a way to see inside an ugly, broken thing... And take away its pain.

    Holy shit, the blues so much.

    First a pile of ZZ Top, and then a bunch of Billy Gibbons playing Texas Roadhouse style with other people. Then I fell down a Rolling Stones hole. Read Keith Richards' book, then watched a documentary on Netflix, then listened to a bunch of their classics with new ears. Now I'm digging up old Muddy Waters and Lightning Hopkins and old archival delta blues stomps and shit.

    I listened to one of their song with music video once....

    Honestly, they're not "for me" but their song was about real issues and was actually pretty insightful iirc. So while i don't like ICP I actually do respect them.

    Then to change it up I'm doing either piles of obscure Phish, or Cypress Hill, Ice Cube, Dre, Snoop, and 2Pac.

    Vangirl and I spend any moment we're not on a conference call for work spinning records. I think we've listened to 100+ albums over the last month.

    Nice. We're doing lots of psych rock, folk, blues, and old soul records. On my daily sanity walks I usually get my heavier music fix, too.

    Playing with Matt/Pony over the last ten years, but particularly the last four or five, has really helped me get over that, because pace is one of his strengths as a GM. When the point of a scene is resolved, he yells CUT like a movie director and we move on, unless a player has one more thing they want to say or clarify or insert a cool final line or whatever. Borrowing that technique, and setting targets for myself ("tonight I want the players to explore the space station, discover the diplomat's treachery and end on the cliffhanger of the enemy ships decloaking") has really transformed my narratives. They've tightened up like they've hit the gym.

    @Jacobkosh

    This is an interesting post to read. I know Matt got a lot of his RPG experience from City of Heroes....since we used to do stuff there together back in the day.

    The reason I bring this up, is because in a lot of the RP things I've done with the CoH community, there's one thing they all universally do that I wasn't used to.

    Once RP has progressed to a point where things are mostly resolved, someone (usually whoever initiated the RP or who had a significant role in it) will literally say "End Scene", and people move on to something new.

    It was jarring at first because I wasn't used to it, but I've definitely grown to love it.

    Just checked - they've got John Prine up. Will probably raid his catalog and add some more doom metal; might be time to pick up Crypt Sermon and Lord Vigo.

    You can accidently consume paint. It won't hurt you it just tastes fucking aweful.

    I once made a mistake where my mom was painting a cabinet brown and had the paint in a plastic dish. I thought it was bean dip ran my finger along the edge and consumed it...the paint coated my tongue and I couldn't get the taste out of my mouth for some time.

    All that picture is doing is inflaming my injustice at there not being enough left-handed mugs.

    Seriously, look at them - the vast majority of mugs are designed such that when you go to grab them with your right hand, you see the image on the front. Left-handed people have to look at the backs, which are usually blank, and everyone else gets to appreciate the imagery.
