Good Morning Ronster

 

Hey Ronster. I hope that you are keeping well and are coping well with the new situation. Thank good for the internet, eh? In the past week i have caught up with old friends, had a couple of online parties (more on that later,) and have started to learn how to play a musical instrument. (Maybe i will post a video next week.) Although this is a strange situation it is different and fun too. Keep healthy and...

Give my love to the city

Audiolicious: God Send-er

 

The bright side of being confined in the Ron-Cave is that i have ample time to check out new music. But i have also trying to give the rolling news a bit of a swerve as it’s all a bit of a downer. With that in mind, check out gds.fm who work out of the bar Sender, for some new music. They are spinning great tunes with no disturbances to tell you things that you already know. (Like you’re stuck at home.) You can also subscribe for a small yearly fee and if you, (unlike a lot of my freelance friends,) still have a job please give them some support if you can.

Comedy: Please Stand Online

 

Okay, do you need cheering up? Yes? Okay, i can’t imagine why but i have just the thing. This Thursday at 8pm, English Stand Up Comedy are presenting an Online stand up show. What’s it like? Well, even they admit they don’t know as they have never done this before (why would they,) but they have a great line up of Zurich based comics. Click on the link to watch the show.

Now i know i said that i want to give the rolling news a bit of a miss but i am also aware that you Ronsters may feel a bit differently. Radio.Garden may have got the colour of space completely wrong on their site but it’s still a super cool way of exploring the worlds radio stations. Navigate around the globe with each radio station represented as a small luminous green dot.

Learning: Masterclass

 

Time for some self improvement? Our self imposed exiles are giving us all ample time to learn a new skill or rediscover an old passion. Fortunately the online world gives us access to all kinds of educational material and expertise. Over the next few weeks i’m going to share a few of my favourite online learning platforms.


First up is masterclass.com and if you are unaware of this platform i’m surprised because i get an advert for it every time i watch an online video. That said they have an amazing line up of very famous instructors who will teach you everything from acting to music production. I am still waiting for my invite to become an instructor…

Good to know: Self Sufficiency

 

Unfortunately i was late in the rush to procure a lifetime supply of canned tomatoes and all i have is one solitary can to last me until…well…my new tomato seedlings from UrbanRoots have propagated. In case you don’t know, UrbanRoots will deliver seedlings to your home and at this point in time, tomatoes are all the rage. What better time is there to be self sufficient than now?

Good to know: Netflix & Er...Chill

 

The expression “Netflix & Chill,” has become synonymous with watching TV and then making sweet love. Many of you may be sundered from your loved one be it in another town, country or dare i say it, another planet. So although the sex is out the Netflix part is definitely still in with Netflix Party which allows you to simultaneously watch your favourite film or series with friends. So get the popcorn on the stove, open a bottle of wine and enjoy.

p.s. My tip is to watch Better Call Saul followed by Breaking Bad and then El Camino. The binge watch to end all binge watches...
