Staying Culturally Connected while Quarantined

Keeping Up when Disconnected

The faster we adopt practical social distancing strategies, the faster we will return to something close to normalcy. With that said, when was the last time somebody encouraged you to watch movies, binge a TV series, or spend some time with some music? For years, we have been building up our must-watch lists on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Disney+ and our playlists on Apple Music, Spotify, SoundCloud, and Tidal. It has not been until now that we can afford to dive into what we always intended on experiencing. Here at RamPage, we have compiled a selection of the most popular pieces of media that are best suited for this time of self-quarantining. Rather than contracting the Coronavirus, infect yourself with these notable pieces:
