This is not a moment, it’s the movement

Title for this post comes courtesy of Hamilton The Musical, arriving this week on Disney+. I have to confess that I’ve never seen it! I faithfully entered the ticket lottery every day the show was playing in my city, but no luck.

How was your weekend? Any plans coming up for the 4th of July? Mine involve staying as far the hell away from everyone else as possible. How is everyone doing?

End Times Playlist #5

I think we should have one more of these before we knock it on the head in favour of something a bit more positively-titled! Here are a few more tracks as we get ready to head off into the sunset.

Group Check In

The past few weeks have been difficult but also inspiring, so I wanted to check in and see how everyone is doing. Feel free to share anything positive or complain about your problems. I’m standing by with pep talks and will gladly customize a Goonies-style speech in your honor. Are you okay? Is there anything we can do to help?

Oops we did it again

Apparently the Britney Spears classic “Oops I did it again” turned 20 over the weekend. This time next year the song will be old enough to drink in the United States! In other music news, a Taylor Swift concert special aired yesterday and should be streaming today so I’m excited about that. My boyfriend will not be excited but that’s his burden to bear. What news have all of you? We’ve been watching Fortitude on Amazon, it’s creepy but good. We’re into part 3 of Money Heist and I like it better than the first two parts. Does anyone want to talk Survivor finale???

May the 4th be with you!

Explain to me how March lasted 2 years and April was only a few days long? In any case, here we are, May 4, 2020. How are you celebrating this totally made up Star Wars holiday? In fairness, all holidays are made up. In my household we watched a New Hope and currently have Rogue One playing in the background while we work. Share your Star Wars movie rankings in the comments!

Checking In

How’s everyone doing? I had a bit of a panic attack at the grocery store this weekend standing in line with way too many people (6 feet apart doesn’t feel far enough when you’re trapped inside). Someone in the Monsters Facebook group posted an article that our own Kelly wrote about her disdain for puzzles and I highly recommend it! Let us know what’s up in your life and please share any TV shows you’re enjoying at the moment.

End Times Playlist #3

Well we’re a week into lockdown here.

It’s unbearable, and two weeks minimum to go.

To add to this, today I’ve lost a close family member.

It’s really crazy to think that at the start of February, I was so excited about all the promise that 2020 held. Let’s think of one another as much as we can and try to keep each other’s spirits up when we can.

To that end, here’s some music.

End Times Playlist #2

Welcome to the second End Times Playlist!

Hopefully you enjoyed the first one.

Here are five more tunes to get you through these strange, unprecedented days. Obviously a lot more has been cancelled, Eurovision amongst other things, and then as of today, the UK government has ordered all cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, clubs and gyms to close. That’s to go along with schools and a lot of the public transport network. I’m working, two-thirds from home, but it’s not possible to escape the feeling that the worst may be yet to come.

Thought we could all do with some music to get us through.

I’ll be doing one of these as and when I can! We’ll be having a mix of old and new and in between. Any suggestions, pop them in the comments!
