  1. I think the covid has got into your brain as that's not what the article says.

  2. To be frank, by the time we are allowed to have festivals again - be it June 2021, August 2021 or Summer 2022 - they can put my mother-in-law on stage for all I care... (ok, that's a lie, but you get what I mean)

  5. Nah, we'll have straight up beaten it by then. It might still be endemic, but it will be throughly cowed by the multiple vaccines available to us by then. That's not learning to live with COVID, except by a very large stretch. That's beating it into irrelevance.

  6. While I get what you're saying, I think plenty of people on here are guilty of posting up and pouring over the numbers and graphs every day and treating it like pure statistics. Or waiting for when the new figures are coming out ready to discuss them. I don't think it can be okay if you're doing so to say you're sad it's all doom and gloom and getting worse, but suddenly insensitive to be happy if there are some improvements.

  8. I had a drive-thru test on 20th September and tested positive on the 21st. Currently at home feeling absolutely shocking. Breathing shallow, a painful cough and a constant crushing headache. I'm a reasonably fit and healthy male, aged 55. Gym 5 days a week with a very active ‘outdoorsy’ lifestyle. I've been relaxed about the virus, thinking it wouldn't affect me physically if I did catch it. I got that one wrong. And it doesn't just affect you physically, it affects you mentally. You worry about just how bad is is going to get, feeling as ill as you already do, but only a few d

  10. I do have a ticket so maybe that's why I feel this way. Wishful thinking? lol. I just think that in the 6 months alone testing has been vastly improved and we have 2 treatments. Give it another 6 months we'll have gone through the Winter, will have even more testing capacity and likely quick testing results too. A vaccine or more treatments even that can be given to higher risk people. Plus will there be an appetite in Government and the country for restrictions on events next summer, I'm not so sure there would be. Therefore I would there's a good chance the festival goes ahead if y

  11. To be fair Ozanne was just analysing the numbers further and coming to conclusion as things might not be as good as the headline...and then he just gets accused of being overly pessimistic. Some on here are very optimistic. Ozanne is also critical of those playing at guess the case numbers (which includes me), as that trivialises what is a serious issue for many.

  12. Yep exactly. By all accounts, this is a negative thread, called when will this shit end about a global pandemic and the abhorrent state of British politics. Understandably people are upset and there's a lot more negative spins than positive outlooks. It's almost as bad as when muse and coldplay were announced to headline 2016. But on the other end of the spectrum there is insanely important and constructive information about the virus and people going to great efforts to finding and explaining information about vaccines, immunity. But yeah to all the people hoping don't take

  13. Great news for Ireland. Well done to all involved in getting this through parliament (The Dail?) When something like this happens it is the result of grass-roots campaigners and a few MPs adopting the cause, plus support from the industry. I live in hope that similar can be achieved here in the UK. I believe the first step would be making it illegal for companies like Viagogo, Stubhub to have any ties to the original ticket sellers. The idea that ticketbastard owned GetMeIn was disgraceful. How could anyone imagine that fairness would prevail when both companies would profit so easily fro

  16. I work in a hospital and on a week off (back in April) started feeling odd and had a temperature. Didn’t feel too bad but not right. Went for a test and it came back positive. I wasn’t feeling too rough and at any other time would have put up with it and gone to work. But instead isolated and was glad I wasn’t feeling too bad. Nearly a week went by and apart from the temperature and sore throat I didn’t have any symptoms but on day 6 I started finding breathing a little hard and my oxygen SATS dropped to 95%. I was warned that if they dropped to 92% I should go to the hospital. By day 1

  17. So, rather than just dismiss this as conspiracy theory nonsense, let's actually talk it through. Kary Mullis was a smart guy, obviously, he wouldn't have won the Nobel prize otherwise (though he was also a bit of an oddball too...check out his company Star Relics where he tried to make money amplifying bits of DNA from Elvis's socks!). This interview was a long time time ago, though still relevant, unfortunately he is no longer with us. He was one of the scientists who believed that HIV was not the cause of AIDS (there's a grain of truth in there, "necessary but not sufficient" is how we descr

  21. Cummings didn't get tested did he? She did and no doubt told to isolate when tested and after being positive. Also he drove in his own car and not on public transport. Not remotely similar.

  22. Oh you know what, I can't even type 'all-time WH' without mentioning this in 2011. Omar Souleyman, Big Boi, Nico Jaae and Aloe Bacc were all terrific that day but this... this was something else.

  23. This was the one for me in 2015. Tears of joy, one of all the all-time WH runs ending with a Hot Chip touchdown. When Al breaks into a verse from All My Friends it looks like he's about to piss himself laughing. It works perfectly but by that point they knew they were flexing in the end zone.

  25. I actually think this move will secure Boomtown's future for the foreseeable future. It was constantly growing and expectations were always around the line up, which for some didn't warrant the price of the ticket. They've now gone back to smaller numbers, but they would expect to sell out early, like the old days. I always enjoyed it in the bowl, obviously the loss of the Lions Den is sad, but I guess with this reset, they can always upscale in the future if the demand is there. I think you'll see a lot of festivals downsizing a bit next year. It'll be more about survival than anything.

  26. I value your posts and contributions, I don't really break things down into positive and negative- it is what it is, I can handle either. Think where clashes between posters are arising it's just a case of incompatible processes, some people prefer to 'think positive' and find 'negative' stuff threatening, while others prefer to prepare themselves for the worse and find 'positive' stuff more threatening as it gets their hopes up. There's no right or wrong to me, I think it's nice we have a variety of viewpoints, it means everyone can get something of what they need

  28. I just encountered a real life anti masker in Sainsbury’s, walking up and down the aisles ranting about muzzles with not a soul listening. Weirdest thing was he had a mask on. How very British to moan about the rules while observing them.

  29. The moat was both spectacular and precarious - i have no idea what would have happened if everyone need to evacuate at once! Think im going to take a punt on the new venue, everything ive read about it from Love International festival seems to be positive even though it seems to lack the big 'showstoppers' it once had - the moat, mungos and the clearing. Right now though id literally take anything for a few days in the sun bopping away till the early hours!

  31. See, I actually found all that a bit ghoulish and insensitive. I feel the same about people guessing the case numbers too. But I don't call people out on it because I recognise that different people have different ways of processing and coping with the shit we're all dealing with at the moment. Not telling you to stop doing it, it's just from my perspective I was reading a comment from one of the ghoulish numbers people criticising another ghoulish numbers person for being too insensitive and not thinking about people's lives. I essentially agreed with you, but to me you also do the same

  33. Boomtown - Chapter One: The Gathering. No line up released prior to the festival. Boomtown will all now be located in what was previously known as ‘Downtown Boomtown’ Forest chillouts and woodland parties will return. "every inch of the ‘Downtown’ valley to build up the most detailed festival city"

  37. first of all, they did it twice already... to August and later to june 21, so third time is possible of course it's not optimal, and of course you'll lose some bands in the process (but gain others, as we saw this time), but if, god forbid, June is too early corona-wise, postponing is far far better than cancelling, even with 80-85% of the lineup and obviously we're far from making this decision yet. we still have no idea if June is possible or not, and until we do, they wont change anything

  40. I had it at the end of March had very minor flu like symptoms and shortness of breath. From what I remember was over in what felt like a few days. I would not thought I had it at all if it wasn't for my mother with whom I live with was really unwell for two and half weeks. She told me after the whole thing that she didn't think she would make it but didn't want to tell which was very upsetting. We also both had "long covid" symptoms such as rashes, hair falling out and I had pins & needles for a couple of months if you believe they are related as the news suggests. Now my mum is 50, in goo

  46. Thank you for all your kind messages. Thankfully, I seemed to have turned a corner and my breathing has gone pretty much back to normal. I still have a cough and absolutely no sense of taste or smell, but I’m a hell of a lot better than I was. It’s been a very scary week feeling worse than I ever felt in my whole life and it’s really put the virus into perspective as far as how damaging and dangerous it really can be. I was definitely one of the ‘Covid complacents’, assuming that I’d be fine because of my general levels of health and fitness, but I couldn’t have been more wrong. It

  47. Everything is going to be ok! In terms of vaccines, Oxford, Moderna and Pfizer should all have early signals from their Phase 3 trials in the not too distant future. GSK/Sanofi have started their trials and Novavax has just started its phase 3 (and these are more established vaccine technologies, so less uncertainty about them). In short, there are now 10 or 11 vaccines in phase 3, at the normal attrition rate, they won't all fail. Operation moonshot was launched to great fanfare and has petered out a bit, but that's only down to supply chain issues (which will be resolved over the next f
