I hope one of those doctors who say they think they have a cure comes through soon...like in the next few months, so that maybe it's mass available this year. I can't imagine what would happen if this drags on for years.

Now that's really scary.

Re: Christmas movies -- I prefer the "features" type ala Bad Santa vs. the MOW/Hallmark types although I will watch em' if they sound interesting/different which many do not.

I've actually never seen a Hallmark Christmas movie. There's just too much content out there and I can't keep up. I even liked the movies that aren't necessarily Christmas movies but are watched during Christmas or have it as a setting: It's a Wonderful life, Love Actually... is Diehard a Christmas movie? Liked the seasonal setting of Diehard. A lot of stuff I didn't actually see when they first came out, but discovered them on streaming. A lot of old classic movies that pop up as suggestions I end up seeing and thinking what a great movie.

I watch Governor Cuomo's update every morning. I can't even image how any of the New York shows will even be able to restart by June-July-- it seems impossible, there's so many people getting sick.

Also, when they say "mild" symptoms, I'm pretty sure from Chris Cuomo's experience, "mild" is a euphemism for, you feel like you "might die."
You never can tell who might be susceptible to this. It's partially age, partially underlying medical conditions, partially random genetics, and partially who knows what.

I probably cried for half an hour the other day (I'm not an crier) after hearing about Adam Schlesinger's passing. I can count on one hand the number of people I would label a 'genius' in this world, but he was one of them. To list his accomplishments in music and film and TV and Broadway would take up more space than this entire thread. And he was only 52.

Stay safe.

I totally consider Die Hard a Christmas film. I also consider Gremlins a Christmas movie.

I feel films shouldn't be put in a box with a label slapped on, break that box wide open.

Forgot about Gremlins. Are Love Actually and It's a Wonderful Life Christmas movies? They seem to replay those movies every Christmas at select theaters.

As far as postponed movies, I was kind of looking forward to the Bond movie, Wonder Woman and Fast 9. The others look interesting. I also think there were some other indie movies that were supposed to come out.

I appreciate the advancements in technology and the sciences (I'm just old enough to have had to use a road map) but overall the standard of living has probably declined for us compared to boomers. You get screwed financially from every possible angle now. Everything is way more crowded. Importing millions of third worlders over the decades while simultaneously outsourcing jobs benefits some (landowners, businesses who want to suppress wages and skirt regulations) but it doesn't benefit the average citizen. I sincerely don't blame some young people for saying **** it and checking out. I wouldn't do that myself but I see where they're coming from. Perhaps their hyper-individualist parents share some of the blame.

And I'm way ahead of you on the crime prep. Go back through the thread if you'd like. I'm grateful that I have a good dad.

Edit: I was a bit hammered when I wrote this so my bad if it came across as crude. Also off topic I guess. I won't take back anything or delete it though cause then I'll look like a chicken ****. If anyone wants to talk in pms or something though I'm game.
Yup. They call Corona "The BOOMER REMOVER."

At age 65, with COPD and scarred lungs from two previous almost-lost battles with "the dreaded pneu-" I may soon fall under that caption, as I have so many captions before.
