Streaming And Doodling...

Sooo tired, as per usual. Way back in early 2020, I had a strange 'symptom' for a couple of days, when I had almost no sense of taste or smell. Of course, I freaked out, thinking Covid death was at hand... Then I was OK. Wonder now if I've actualylly had the virus, and am now suffering some sort of 'Long Covid'?
I always have this problem of excessive fatigue, but recently it seems much worse. Could be the depression, though. Gods know that's even worse than usual. Dunno...
Just been half-listening to a gruesome item on R4  about the horrible culling of mink in Denmark, at the beginning of the pandemic. Yetch.
Watched THE EGYPTIAN, which I think I may have seen as a child. It was actually not bad, for one of those ancient-days spectacles; more literate than most. One of the main characters was (very!) loosely based on a favourite historical figure of mine, Akhenaten. It looked great, and there was a decent cast. I checked it out, and it seems it was a box office failure, which is odd.
Also watched BOILED ANGELS about the Florida trial, conviction, and extreme persecution of Mike Diana for obscenity. I've never particularly liked his work, finding a lot of it pretty sickening and tedious, but I can't imagine it actually doing any harm. Diana was really put through the mill, with very fierce punishments. Boy, stay outa Florida!
Checked out Rachael House's cartoonist Zoom chat group again. Of course, I have nothing to say, but it is interesting to hear the 'grownup' pros (all much younger than I-)  talking about their cool projects. Actually makes me want to do stuff. Here are the doodles I produced during the session:
