No new work coming in

The title says it all.

No new work and no phone calls or emails from old clients or new.

I guess everyone is worried about the Corona virus (COVID-19)

We will, as a world community, get through this and hopefully be stronger for it.

Be safe and Healthy everyone...

I've got work booked for next week, but i'm expecting that to be mostly cancelled.

After that, i think work will fall off to almost zero.

This will require governments to step in and force banks to put mortgages on hold, defer tax payments and all kinds of other measures. Otherwise it's mass unemployment (1929-style), social disorder and many years before we recover from it.

IMHO.

The ironic thing is, the months to come might be the most intense period of music making in history, as musicians have very little to do other than make music!

Frankly i think that new laws will be required to strip the super rich (businesses and persons) of their wealth to help towards fighting this thing.

Live streaming is taking off.

Those unable to stream, and those unwilling to travel or group up to live stream, want content already recorded, to get in on the trend.

Hang in there.

This is just crazy.

Now they want to get businesses up and running again soon which flies in the face of what the medical professionals are telling them to do.

To many "chiefs" and not enough people who REALLY know what they are doing.

I keep feeling, when I watch the nightly news, that I am watching a bad Science Fiction movie. YUCK

I wish this was over or at least we could see an end point. Not knowing is the worst.

Keep a stiff upper lip and keep your "spirits" up (where other people can't find them" <GRIN>

STAY SAFE AND HEALTHY!!!
