Good morning, everyone! Welcome to the start of a new week and a new year in the cryptic world of Amateur At Play. I’ve been away for a few weeks getting to know my third child, who was born in late November. He seems alright – likes being sick on my shoulder a little too much for comfort, but he’s a decent little boy.

Anyway, I thought I’d resume on familiar territory, with the topic of plague raves. Around the world, Covid-19 is still causing no end of problems. This vaccine cannot come soon enough for my liking – this perpetual cycle of lockdowns and restrictions isn’t going to make this go away.

Incidentally, Covid denying windowlickers were not welcome on my social media pages and still aren’t welcome here – so if you do think it’s a plandemic or an evil conspiracy so Bill Gates can microchip you and know each time you take a shit, kindly piss off to another site now.

For those of you still here, I notice no end of footage over the Christmas and New Year break of people attending plague raves. It’s thoroughly depressing and thoroughly irresponsible. As I’ve written before, you are not following in the footsteps of those who did it in 1988, nor are you impressing anyone.

All you’re doing is ensuring that legal clubbing goes to the bottom of the priorities list amongst the decision makers, thus meaning that there will be even fewer clubs left on the other side.

Put simply, if you go to one of these plague raves, you’re an idiot. I’ll be coming back to this one later in the week…
