Eurovision Happiness

I love(d) Eurovision this year! It was funny, well-presented and even the worst acts had a certain quality despite dropping out. That includes the semifinals, which for the first time I actually managed to watch in their entirety on the day (and then again on YouTube). That being the case, I had a gut feeling […]

Eurovision War Song Contest

Ah, yes… That day of the year that equals the madness surrounding the Super Bowl was again yesterday and I actually managed to sit through The Eurovision Song Contest without too much struggling to stay awake (and zapping to and fro Monsters vs. Aliens and The Adjustment Bureau on other channels).

Daft P(h)unk

It’s funny that something as trivial as walking a a couple of hundred meters to the […]

We are one!

Strangely I’ve gotten into that kinda habit of watching the Eurovision Song Contest in recent years. Even when I was in hospital two years ago we would stay up till late at night. Yesterday’s version wasn’t all that bad. While some may criticize the songs getting more mainstream and commercial, I think it does the […]
