Hey guys n’ gals! I know it’s been a week since there’s been any anime series or episodic posts about the latest titles, but don’t fret, there’s gonna be some reviews coming up soon. As for what’s going on around the world, Corona Hysteria is at an all-time high. Hand sanitizer is becoming harder to find, and even if you do find it, it’s being sold at high prices. I’m not sure if we know this, but I feel that the Coronavirus has ‘been’ here before. Why would I say that? Well, I was 13 when the 2002-2003 SARS outbreak happened – as only 8,000 total cases were conformed worldwide before the threat of that Coronavirus was diminished. Taking care of yourself as well as keeping up basic hygiene should be a number one priority, but if it took COVID-19 to get us to ‘wake up’ and actually do what we should’ve been doing, then something is wrong with us.
Although we’re still learning more about Corona (not the beer or the Soul Eater villain), I will tell you this; like every viral outbreak before it, this too shall pass. We need to be smart, not stupid! There’s honestly no need to cry ‘Gloom and Doom’, because this virus is not AIDS or HIV. Yes, you probably won’t be able to travel outside the U.S. for about two weeks, and many major events like conventions may get postponed or cancelled (which really, really sucks), but you kinda gotta pick your battles at this point. Sorry if it feels like I’m ranting a bit, but I’ve been hearing about Coronavirus for three weeks, and I’m sick of it – no pun intended. Out of the 100,000+ cases worldwide, 50,000+ people have recovered from it in just two weeks. We’ll get through this, I just know it.
Now that I’ve got that off my chest, time for some good news! My EP “Minddgames” will be dropping in all online music stores and streaming services this Friday! Plus the convention that we’ll be going to in Lancaster, PA (Zenkaikon) is still on – in spite of Corona. They’ve taken all precautions and got multiple sanitation stations everywhere, and some EMT’s on site. Not everyone is buying into Corona Hysteria (which is smart), in fact, a lot of the smaller and mid-sized cons are still happening, and it looks like a couple of the major ones may get (potentially) cancelled or postponed – but we’re crossing our fingers and praying to God it doesn’t happen! (Or even reach that point.) Upon meeting me and my partner A. Goldman at any conventions, you’ll have to either fist bump or side-knuckle us until about April. Anyway, that’s all the thoughts on my mind for now, and as for any anime fans or fans of ours who live in Nashville after those deadly tornadoes came through, our thoughts and our prayers go out to you all.
Until next post guys; stay safe, be smart, and stay nerdy! 😉
