I come in genuine curiosity, but this hospital argument... I'd like clarification. So originally we couldn't do anything because covid was going to kill everyone on earth. Then there was a vaccine and we couldn't do anything until we all got vaccinated. Now we're all vaccinated and the sole reason left that we're still living piece of shit lives is because we don't want to overload the hospitals? Is this the correct read on it?
So, if this is true, we've resigned to the truth that is this is how the rest of our lives look? Masks, QR codes, crowd capacities, covid tests if we want to travel interstate, let alone international travel - then we need 87 tests and quarantine every time a new variant pops up, which will be fortnightly, or at the latest, monthly. This is it now, is it? Because if it's not, how does the end of it look? When will it be okay to live again without fear of clogging up the hospitals?
I can only speak for Australia on this part of it, but all we've ever heard about is stopping the strain on the hospitals, but has anyone ever seen it? Would anyone even consider overloaded hospitals as an issue if the media hadn't told us it was an issue? I ask as anyone I know who works in healthcare, and to an extent, even myself, as a medical courier who has worked every single day of the last two years... no one I know, or I, have ever seen any single even remote sign of all this strain on our health system. So, like the rest of this pandemic, is it just another media beat up? All they've done for two years straight is belt fear into us, so is it unreasonable to think this is just another branch from that tree?
I'm just sick of daily excuses why our lives are still fucking horrible. Anytime the mere suggestion of return to a "normal" life gets brought up, there's a whole list of media-inspired reasons why we have to continue living in misery.
Anyway, I think that was about it. I'm just in eternal wonder about why we all had to get vaccinated when it hasn't actually changed anything about how covid is viewed and feared. Covid is viewed exactly as it was two years ago. It still governs every aspect of how we live, so all these promises about getting vaccinated so we could go back to a normal life were obviously all bullshit.
I was thinking about Australia's trajectory this morning. So if we keep up this pathetic excuse for an existence - the daily covid rate is around 1300 daily cases - let's call it 1500 daily cases if and when the other states open up. So if we continue on this trajectory, living in paralysed fear of the virus, acting like every case of covid is terminal cancer, we should get past this covid thing in about 15,333 days. So around 42 years. That, of course doesn't allow for population growth, but let's assume the cases go up with population growth proportionately.
So that's the outlook in Australia. In 42 years, we might finally move on from covid, based on our current trajectory? What a future to look forward to! Oh, actually, that doesn't include cases prior to today, so maybe we can get out of this thing in closer to 41 years? Life just got a whole lot brighter right then.
Yeah Badd Boyz is very good,would be my fav of the three...I really like the Platinum Overdose albums but I know where you're coming from,I also prefer their more melodic/glammy/sleazy side to the metal type stuff
Here's what it was for me, I mostly voted on familiarity:
1. I'll be honest, I didn't know who either of these singers were. Of the two I've only heard music from Harem Scarem so it was Hess for me
2. I like Coverdale's voice more than Tyler's
3. I voted Michaels since I've only heard a handful of Enuff Z'nuff songs and I listen to a lot of Poison. With such a limited sample size this might change when I hear more Z'nuff but for right now it has to be Michaels
4. Haven't heard a lot of Mason so I voted Jani. As far as I'm concerned Jani is the full package when it comes to singer-songwriters, he's an absolute Legend
5. Of all of these I feel like this is the least fair comparison, they don't sound even remotely alike to me. While Pearcy isn't a phenomenal vocalist in the traditional sense, he's so much more distinct in my opinion. I think Phil's voice could get lost in the shuffle, but when Pearcy sings you KNOW it's Pearcy which is arguably more important in some cases
6. Haven't heard Queensryche with La Torre, so Tate it is
7. Bon Jovi is my favorite band of all time, come at me
8. Same with Tate, I've only heard Great White with Russell so Russ it is
9. I like both versions of Danger Danger for different reasons, but I have to go with Poley for this one
10. Haven't heard anything from Heart I don't think, so Elliot all the way
11. Haven't heard much of Cold Sweat or Cathey, but I do love that first Lynch Mob album. Point Logan!
12. Once again had to look these guys up, but this time I've actually heard one full album from each. I assumed Bulen was Keeling, but that aside this was probably the closest one for me. Ended up going for Baton Rouge but if you asked me in a few weeks that might change
We should do this again sometime, maybe with guitarists/drummers/bassists/etc?
