Reasoning with Madness
"This is a barbaric yawp, and it will be sounded over the roofs of the world."
As we prepare the final days with my mother this weekend and a global pandemic has begun, I was nervous going to see Tool last night in Portland. It just felt...wrong.
But my mother would have told me to go so we grit our teeth and went. I'm glad I did. It may be one of the last concerts in Oregon for awhile.
Shortly after the show, the governor declared a statewide shut down of all large gatherings of 250 or more for the next 4 weeks. My friends down in Eugene weren't so lucky as the show was cancelled tonight due to the order.
I'm very sorry for them, some whom flew back home to see this show.
The world has become a rather terrifying place all of a sudden.
