Yes, I hope it doesn’t get worst. Apparently, in Denmark it has been confirmed that the Covid has mutated.

Are the votes still getting counted or they finished already ? I read there was a bit of fraud in favour of Biden in some states and it is being investigated, is that true ?
Biden and Harris are giving victory speeches right this very moment. They are still counting a few votes I think, but there’s no way it’s going to change the outcome. If there was fraud, it probably wasn’t widespread (in my opinion). And I think it’s very hard to prove. It’s over. Trump is done.

It’s a basic fact of life that some people are going to love you and some people are going to hate you. But so what? There are some people out there who think even Mother Teresa was a twat. That’s the law of averages and you’re just going to have to deal with it.

‘So, Stevie Wonder is playing his first gig in Tokyo and the place is rammed,’ I tell Andy, as we make our way into the Orange Tree.

‘To break the ice he asks the audience if anyone would like him to play a request. A little old man jumps out of his seat in the first row and shouts at the top of his voice: “Play a jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!”

‘Amazed that this little guy knows about the jazz influences in his long and varied career, Stevie starts to play an E minor scale and then goes into a difficult jazz melody for about 10 minutes.

‘When he finishes the whole place erupts. But the little old man jumps up again and shouts: “No, no, play a jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!”

‘Stevie’s a bit pissed off by this. But being the professional that he is, he dives straight into a jazz improvisation around the B flat minor chord and tears the place apart. As before, the crowd goes wild. But when he’s finished, the little old man jumps up again. “No, no. Play a jazz chord! Play a jazz chord!”

Well and truly hacked off that this little guy doesn’t seem to appreciate his technical virtuosity, Stevie grabs the mike.

“OK, smart arse,” he shouts. “You get up here and do it!”

‘The little old man climbs up on to the stage, takes hold of the mike and starts to sing … “A jazz chord to say I loved you…”’

What do you usually watch on Youtube? (or similar site)
I like to watch reviewers in my free time like the cinema snob, bobsheaux, phelous, and animation channels like Dead Sound, pantsahat (stop motion animation - it counts), Cas van de Pol.

I ended up getting stuck with the short videos TikTok like they show... I watch Jeenie Weenie. The videos about politics have started to depress me, everything that’s funny there is cringy... Seriously, I feel that I’m wasting my time watching YouTube. It’s not fulfilling me anymore.

I feel honoured and appreciate the enthusiasm, but since I myself am a self-taught still learning and never in my entire life teached anything, so I dunno how to, I'll have to decline the offer. 😅

I wish someday we can get a proper English teacher to lead this section or, even better, a native English speaker to point our flaws and give us some tips to improve. 🥺🤞 *Crossing fingers*
I am bilingual, since early childhood/preschool years:cafe: Is that help?

maybe is time to expand your horizons and look for something more challenging. Usually, people tend to change from a consumer stance to a more productive one over time regarding their hobbies or pastimes. I started to try doing other stuff like drawing and programming as I have a fascination with art and electronics. maybe you can try doing something similar.

regarding politics, it’s something that is not going to change for the time being. You can try to tackle it from a positive angle as you are part of an historic event of which you may have a greater influence that you would expect, as with the current razor thin margins every vote counts. Even if the present seems dark, there is always tomorrow.
