Like most of us, it’s not easy being stuck in this Lockdown, especially when there’s a very active young child bouncing around the walls of the house, so the new set of Jabra Elite 65T wireless earbuds was a really good investment to try and keep things a little more quiet when trying to work from home. Honestly I picked them up for my daily walks as sometimes you can catch your hands in the cables of standard headphones and that was an annoyance that wasn’t needed, I saw them on offer and decided it made sense, and yep, they have been great for walking outdoors and also being around the house.
One positive of being stuck around the house is that it would appear I have finally been able to get back to doing some review writing again, So go check out the latest couple of reviews over on my Reviews – Albums/Gigs 2020 and seeing as there aren’t going to be any gig reviews for some time it’s great to be back in the saddle so to speak on the Album Review front. Latest additions are the brilliant new Dynasty album and yet another excellent release from Newman, both for my good friends over at RockposerDotCom. Links to both reviews are on the page below, hope you like them, there will, touch wood, be many more to follow. Also, without new gigs, will be looking back at some from last year and will add them to the page as well.
Hope everyone is keeping busy, healthy and sane throughout this crisis, it is of course more difficult depending on your situation, I have to be extra careful since the heart attack, and still need to get out and exercise. Sadly even if I didn’t can’t visit my sick mother, so that’s an extra strain, but I know she is being well looked after by a caring group of staff where she is, so that is a comfort. Right time to get out and have that walk, stick a new album on the headphones and see where the walk today leads, it’s really important to get fresh air for mental health, four walls no matter what sort of accommodation you live in can close in around you after a period of time, add to that being stuck in it’s much more difficult to eat healthy foods, get a little down and it’s much easier to reach for chocolate rather than fruit, but I will hopefully get there. As more and more gigs and Festivals are either cancelled or postponed until next year it’s looking like a very quiet Summer ahead. But 2021 is going to be crazy busy for gigs, so bring it on, will definitely be trying to get to some different places next year, if Germany doesn’t happen this year then next year will try and bring the camera along.
The little man is being a brat today, but he’s going to have good days and bad too, gotta try and keep patient with everyone and everything, new music is out there, lots to listen to, new albums to buy and keep helping out your favourite acts if of course you can in difficult financial times, and hopefully we’ll all be out at a gig on the other side of this thing.
