What is Ukrainian for "boots and pants and boots and pants?"

Hopefully they keep the glow sticks and strobes to a minimum. It's cynical, but Russians will attack soft, civilian targets knowingly, simply because they're making the best of it. Misery loves company and there are few if any more miserable places on Earth.

EBM/Darkwave is somewhat good depending on the band, but many times the pounding beat just gives me a headache. Also, EBM is the annoying reason why Goth clubs don't play bands like London After Midnight, Switchblade Symphony, Faith and the Muse or other similar bands anymore, they're "too slow" for the current crop of DJs.

How about a training program for nurses and CNAs instead, and some laws to protect them.

Before the pandemic, this country was short over a million nurses every year. We've known that for DECADES.

Its much worse now, getting worse all the time and there is zero interest in acknowledging it, much less addressing this in this country.

Taking the ww2 US pilot training model we could fix that in a handful of years.

But no one cares too.

I'm taking my skills to a different country. This one is a failed state.

That's horseshiat. New Beat exists. It is LITERALLY and SPECIFICALLY a slowed down version of EBM (and I mean that quite LITERALLY, in that it got its start when DJ Fat Ronnie played A Split Second - Flesh at 33 and not 45).

And healthcare!

I have massive medical debt from being seen in my own ERs after having cardiac issues while working on shift in a ward  upstairs. Twice. Two different hospitals and systems.

Fark you american healthcare.

It's a start.  Now do the rest of the hospital staff.  Nurses make about 3 times what I do and take home more than I make before taxes.

I haven't played out in years. But if I did I'd probably be playing this -- it opens with a Fleming Dalum upgrade of Decadance who taught Al Jourgensen everything he knew during his New Romantics phase.

I mean don't get me wrong, Synthpop is fine. But it doesn't hold a candle to Dark Italo.
