A rock band from the United States, The Flaming Lips, organized a plastic bubble concert. Both the musicians and the audience were on their own premises. The recital took place during the show "The Late Show", but the band is not the first experience of this kind.
The huge inflatable ball is a symbol of the soloist - he often appears at concerts so that fans can hold him more easily in his arms, and he even got married in a bubble.
The reaction of the US press and Internet users was varied - some said it was the perfect solution to attend pandemic concerts, others that it was an example of dystopia.
The Flaming Lips is an alternative rock band formed in 1983. The group has three Grammy Awards, two of which for best instrumental rock performance. The band was placed in 2002 by the British magazine "Q (stores)" in the top "50 groups to see before you die".

5 ideas that only need paper, pencils and pens. Children during quarantine are easily getting boring. That’s why, Bemorepanda decided to collect the best games for children and parents to play during quarantine.
A fun and simple game in which you need to create stories. Each person takes a piece of paper, writes one adjective on top. Then he folds the paper to close the word, and transfers it to another player in a circle. On a new sheet you need to write a name. Then the actions are repeated.
The order further should be as follows:
one more name;
what the characters do;
what the first said to the second;
what the second answered;
what happened after;
what people thought.
Words can change, for example, instead of the names of people, you can write the names of animals. You can also add additional moves, for example, indicate what was worn on the person. Try to come up with funnier options to make the story as fun as possible.
2. Puppet theater
To make dolls yourself, cut out the drawn figures or pictures from magazines and glue a thin (3-4 cm) strip of paper to their back. Glue or staple the ends of the strip. Now, improvised dolls can be put on your finger and play with them any funny scenes. And if you have a printer, dolls can be printed.
You can also put a real theatrical performance at home. To do this, you need to come up with a fun story, draw or print masks of heroes (for example, fairy-tale characters or animals), put them on your faces and get used to the role.
3. Dots and squares
Ideally, a piece of paper is needed for the game. Draw a wide square - this is a playing field. Take two multi-colored felt-tip pens or a pencil. The first player draws a line two cages in length anywhere inside the field. Then the other player must do the same.
If there is no sheet in the cage at hand, use the usual one. Draw a playing field, and inside at the same distance - about 1 cm - place the dots. The move will be the connection of two points with a horizontal or vertical line.
Your task is to paint over all or almost all of the edges of the cell with your own color: 3 or 4 edges - your cell, if 2 by 2 - it goes to the player who set the final line. Inside the filled square, write the letter of your name. Whose squares will be more, he won.
Crossword puzzles can be found on the Internet or compiled by yourself. To make words easier, choose a topic, such as colors, space, or animals. You can use puzzles as tasks.
To help your child learn math, you can use examples instead of verbal questions. But the child will still need to enter answers in the crossword puzzle in words. For example, 4 + 4 =? Answer: eight.
5. Crocodile on paper
The principle is the same as in the classic game: one participant explains to others the hidden word. Only it needs to be drawn, not gestured.
If you play together or three, everyone comes up with his own words. If you are four or more, guess each other's words one by one: who guesses, he draws as follows.
