Sunday Morning Malaise (And Some Solutions)

Sunday Morning Malaise (And Some Solutions) October 4, 2020

You’ll have to excuse the delayed post for this week; it’s a result of having a back that has turned into a block of paving brick, a knee that has crumpled into sounding like celophane every time I move, and a seventeen-year-old cat that is critically unwell and spending her last few days on the comfort of the couch and the warmth of the heater.

It’s been a time of organising pillows and ordering painkillers for the pair of us. Thankfully, there’s been a few distractions that have kept me less tearful and more philosophical, and in the spirit of sharing things that might connect with anyone in similar circumstances, here’s something to tide you over.

Later I’ll see about writing some reviews of things I’ve finally had the chance to sit down and actually watch or read… As opposed to running out the door flailing costumes wildly or diving into bed to grab fitful sleep, which has been my modus operandi for the past month or so.

Firstly – some of these made me cry, oddly enough, although the aim is to relax: from The ACMI Isolation Guide.

2020 has been an absolute ride, and with it has come the full gamut of human emotions. Here in Melbourne, we’re so tantalisingly close to restrictions easing that we can taste it. With this comes a rollercoaster of excitement and anticipation that might understandably reduce us to a bundle of nerves. What we need right now is to keep calm and ride this thing out. If you’re struggling to maintain your zen and the weighted blanket just isn’t cutting it anymore, don’t worry – we’ve got the calm content to keep you calm and contented through the final leg of isolation.

“Choir on Mars” by Liminal Drifter – which has been climbing up again on the college music chill-charts after a solid showing on same charts for some time. Possibly after being featured as a quarantine artist on WLOY radio, and getting some significant airplay worldwide over the past few months. It’s the single from an album called Connected.

Finally, something that has me enjoyably distracted and thankfully doesn’t require too much energetic gameplay to succeed with: Moving Out.

Are you ready for an exciting career in furniture? As a newly certified Furniture Arrangement & Relocation Technician, you’ll take on moving jobs all across the busy town of Packmore. Smooth Moves may not be the biggest moving company, but there’s no task too dangerous or strange for this busy team of go-getters. Grow your business to brave new heights, recruit colourful customizable characters, and save your town from furniture peril!

It’s silly, it’s playable on your own or with a friend on the couch as you cuddle a cat. The podcast Pixel Sift have been having a hilarious time doing team trial challenges with it. Not a bad Sunday all round considering. Take care of you and yours.
