So moving, so relatable!

3. #ConductorCam

Broadway actor Rob McClure’s truly delicious “conductor” series. Warning: number 12 is physically painful for musicians. And yes, it’s “proper” conducting. Start with episode one, below, then see all the rest here. – PeterFyfe

4. This cartoon by Nathan W Pyle

OK, it was tweeted in 2019 but it brings the world two new terms: “rollsuck” and “foot fabric”. And for those who were stuck in our homes in lockdown for so long observing the filth, it just seems so appropriate to 2020. –@TomJohnstone
