Self Quaranteen Stories
« on: Time Format »

YO! It's pretty quiet in here, considering how many of us are on lockdown currently. I know y'all got some interesting stories that have happened since we've been cooped up, like being afraid to lick the cheetos dust off your fingertips. Like, pulling out old gear that you never had time for and making discoveries (I discovered my MP-1 Classic sounds like a fuzz in any gain stage - I'll try tubes first). Like, ANYTHING that happened - did your band hold an 'online show' with Zoom?

We have a pretty tight little community of musicians and fans here in Sacramento. Aged from 30somethings to 50s. So, if I say 'the girls', I really mean women around 40 years old - haha. I DIGRESS. A local vocalist decided to have a little radio show every evening, each with a different theme. He'd post something on Facebook, asking for ideas to use in that evening's theme. He gets a setlist together and has a little show in the bedroom. He's a frontman, so he's good at acting entertaining.

One of my bands was going to get together at a local studio that has tons of room (we know a guy), but our other guitarist's wife's immune system is very compromised and we didn't wanna take any chances. It could kill her, whereas we could fight it off. sigh.

Lay it on me ladies and gents. I'm bored  :waving-banana-smiley-emoticon

You guys have anything like that going on?

No stories other than I'm sick of people around me no listening to the government advice on self distancing and isolating.  Some of my neighbours are a disgrace.

All I've been doin myself is heading to the super market when I need food and drink and going for walks near where I live and that is that!  Those are the only two reasons over here for people to leave their homes and it's sickening the assholes I happen to live near who are constantly back and forth in their cars and having people over who don't live in their house (all of which is currently against the law specifically drawn up since covid lockdown situation has occurred).

I have been messing with guitar and gear of course but my motivation is shot.  Off until Wednesday then back to work (working from home) which is actually a nightmare as it's awkward and turned a place I don't associate normally with work into a place I don't enjoy right now.

RG - you're not alone in that 'lack of motivation' phase and also not the only person to express disdain over working from home. My buddy says "i never leave the office...the damn computer is a bane to my existence now"

You stay careful, let the others get sick. You'd probalby kick it's ass if you got it anyway  :banana-rock:

Oh yeah man not just me, everyone going through similar shit.  Just crazy times.  Heard this morning Europe mainland are lifting restrictions in some places.  Where I am we're 3 weeks behind, so aint not letting up here.

I hope you are right, that I would kick it's ass if I got it.  I was diagnosed with asthma about a year ago so that puts me in the "at risk" category so I really hope If I do get it I can kick its ass.  Been doing what I can despite what I see around me with other idiotic people.  So fingers crossed.  Lets hope no one gets it though!

Hope so my man  :thumb-up:

Today during Covid lockdown week number 3, I decided to borrow a neighbours ladder to go up and get rid of some birds nesting in the top corner of my house!  Muther f**ker!  The ladders were so heavy I could barely manage them.  I weight about 12st 2-5lbs  (172lbs ish) and these ladders where not moving with my body weight.  Had to use strength to manoeuvre them.  And when I finally got them into a place that was decent, they kept slipping on the grass.  Girlfriend could not help me at all as she wasn't strong enough or heavy enough.  Decided to move the ladder to the side of the house and try from there.  Got a stable position ok, got up the height ok, but from the side I could not access the roof tile that I needed to lift  >:( man I am so pissed off.  Couldn't ask neighbour for help as you know social distancing etc keeping 2 meters apart blah blah.  Now these bastard birds are gonna be laying eggs and killing me with their screeching chicks during lock down!  Mega pissed!  Bloody ladder has left me battered an bruised as well.

Sorry just had to get that off my chest!

I like pigeons though!  It's muther f**king starlings that are a massive pain in the hole!  I guess the pigeon shit is not so cool like so I get ya.  I got up to the side and saw the cavity where these fuckers are but I'd need round the front side (front of the house) to see what's really going on.

I just started checking out ladders there that are the height I would need to get up there.  The weights are like 12kg to like 16 kg.  So the ladders that I was loaned must have weighed about I dunno 70kg.  I just couldn't understand my feebleness moving them about.  I moved ladders about before no problem.  Perhaps these were steel ladders and the ones I had no issues with before were aluminium or something I dunno?

Too keep busy I'm building some clones of famous pedals. First one is finished, a clone of a MXR phase 90. Also finished the pcb layout of a tubescreamer, mxr flanger with a SAD1024 (I have some lying around) mxr dynacomp, finishing the maestro PS-1B and started on the Mutron octave devider (I want that sound Accept has on the Neon Nights) and a Rangermaster (found some original OC44's in my parts stock)

BTW creating some Lissajous curves can also be fun  ;D

I need to know how the Mutron goes!  Please keep me updated.  I find I can fake that sound using my harmonizers in certain ways.  But I spoke with you before about really digging that Neon Nights tone, so if you make a good clone let me know how it goes.

You buy the kit or make the kit up yourself?

I'd be into the rangemaster one but I already bought a premade one.  Has a dial that allows more low end into the sound which I have found very useful.

Sorry, no real viral stories from me, other than it's overblown and politicized.
Not meaning that the virus isn't there, but that it's being blown out of proportions, complete with incorrect data, all to create so much scare that people will accept even their constitution being rendered off-line.
200 mil people dies every year, about 5.7-5.8 mil from ordinary lung deceases.

And such viral scenarios all has been thoroughly investigated and rehearsed years ago, like the 2016 London Exercise Sickness..

There's nothing more powerful to control people than fear.

Worst is that several mechanisms against the virus has been known for a long time, like a cure against malaria invented early 1970's, or extracts from certain mushrooms, which renders the spikes/tentacles almost incapable of attaching to receptors in human cells.

Don't get me wrong, the virus is there, and logical precautions of course applies, but once a virus is present, it will infect, it will adapt to the host, and the host will learn to cope with it.  The virus will gradually spread, and most hosts will learn to cope.

A number of media reports have shown trucks in Italy, claimed to be transporting dead bodies - but has anyone seen these bodies?
Mortality rate of ~8% claimed, but the number of dead are misinterpreted, because those diagnosed and dying on a hospital often dies from ordinary causes while carrying the virus, but not dying from it, that is, died with the virus, not from it.
And likewise with the number infected. which is much larger than reported, which means the mortality rate is really much lower than reported.

I live on a trailer park. We're well separated by natural means - except from toilets and washing cabins in the bunk house.

Walking along an open read, a woman strolling along with a baby in the four-wheeler, moved out on the road, complete with cars, to avoid passing me at about one meters distance - in 11 meters per second winds.
Her government/media-induced fear logic dictated it was safer being with her child on the road than passing me closer than the yes-Sir regulated two meters.

Me?  I use the same logical precautions I always observe during an ordinary flu, and use the supliments I always use for boosting my immune system anyways.
All while watching a few more Jewish Illuminati porns.

Sorry if I stir up emotions..
Peace

There isn't this kind of reaction to the flu (and anyways people forget the Flu kills people every year so its serious enough thing to worry about it hence the Flu jab I received in November).  I was exactly the same as how you were thinking until I got sent home 3 weeks ago from work and people were told to stay at home all over the country and all over the world.  That's when I knew this was different.  I thought it would never reach my country in fact.  AND NO getting people to stay away from one another is helping put less pressure on our (the UK) medical system which was in a bad state before all this so it's definitely not an overreaction, it's a requirement.  Seeing the the Prime Minister get it was also a wake up call.

Are you trying to tell me the deaths in Italy, Spain are all normal and we shouldn't think that this is an extraordinary situation?  Why would France want to put itself into another recession?  Why would any country do any of this to themselves?  Sounds very conspiratorial to me what you have just said.

The woman who stepped out on the road to avoid you, well she handled it wrong, she should have waited until you passed or else you should have let her go first.  But I guess because you don't believe in staying away from people you would never have done that since it's some government induced fear.  Perhaps have some respect for people who do believe in doing that? 

I personally hate my government and have no reason to trust them or anything else, but I can just tell this is different for a change and extreme measures are required.

Hey VS

I agree with some of your maths and stats your your talking about, I don't think it's too overblown and politicized, it’s too international, too big of a deal.

I also think your pure wrong about the death thing;  that A number of media reports have shown trucks in Italy, claimed to be transporting dead bodies - but has anyone seen these bodies?
Mortality rate of ~8% claimed, but the number of dead are misinterpreted, because those diagnosed and dying on a hospital often dies from ordinary causes while carrying the virus, but not dying from it, that is, died with the virus, not from it.
    VS ?   :o   :o   :o

I know a guy who died last Friday from corona virus ! He was my old school teacher.
Also, my nephew is a consultant doctor in a hospital, he's not making up fake stories.

Conspiracy theorems like the 911 conspiracy, that the US government planned the whole thing.
Or, the Apollo moon landings were fake and that all of the TV footage was done secretly in Hollywood.
Or, the latest stuff now by David Icke, c’mon, NUTS.   :crazy:

I'm with RG and agree too.
