Re: Poll begins on ranking the "Price trilogy" of albums

Electric for me is the most concise product. It has purpose. A rapid fire of BPM. 7.5/10 Super is the "album of b-sides" I always thought they should do. And it's in no way a criticism to say that. And to immediately contradict myself - The Pop Kids was a lovely single. Whole album is a burst of pop...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

glennjridge I get what you are saying. The majority of people will not get symptoms or have mild symptoms. That's not really the issue, though. The issue is non-trivial percentage of people need strong medical attention. And developed nations are in many cases within two weeks away from having their...

I vote to just let to pandemic discussion happen here.

It's a massive thing. Everyone is going through the side effects and many of us will know someone suffering.

Please don't try to censor people discussing it.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

17 Italian doctors have died treating people in a matter of weeks.

The 10-20% who get severe symptoms seem to have sustained lung damage.

Recovered people in China seem to be becoming reinfected.

It's very early days for a new virus.

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

You keep talking about the elderly in a weird way It is clogging up hospitals in advanced countries and that is pretty goddam serious for everyone. Somewhere between 10-20% of people get a severe flu that needs medical attention. Athletes are reporting being hugely overwhelmed by the virus. Agree ma...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Whats becoming hauntingly clear is that you are panicking. People are fed up talking about it thats whats going on here. People by and large who get this and arent elderly and have underlying issues, get over it. Nope, not panicking. But not in complete and utter denial either. Trump is spending a ...

Yes,...but thats the situation even without this virus. my mother was a heavy smoker for most of her life and she quit at 50. trouble was she had apparently done enough damage to her lungs, that the littlest thing would put her into pneumonia, and inevitably she died from it. she was especially sus...

Re: Do you think PSB should postpone the DREAMWORLD tour because of covid-19?

Really important to have at the front of your mind that most who contract this virus will just have a mild illness. Agree that seems to be the case so far, still not knowing the level of immunity or how it mutates going forward. But it's kinda besides the point, isn't it? Even if the rate of death ...
