Happy Easter!!!! and as usual the Ukrainians own it. (courtesy of Anthony Easton)
The Eurovision entry from the Ukraine was Verka Serdyuchka, precipitating street protests by angry Ukrainian nationalists and pro-Russians. From Macleans:
[pro-Russians] took to the streets on Sunday to protest against the choice of Serdyuchka, [...] saying she will embarrass Ukraine on the world stage and demanding that the country withdraw from the Eurovision contest.
Sally & I made Easter eggs for you.
Woa, i'm having a Klaus Noami flashback. (uh, whatever that means)
Klaus meets the Schmenges.
Before I die, I want to be in the audience for the Eurovision Song Contest.
...meets viva variety
yet more incentive for Canadians to petition to join the EU.
I've never seen "my lovely horse", that's hilarious. (best graphic effect on a horse in a music video ever)
I was in a band once called 'my lovely horse'. I convinced my unsuspecting band partner that it was a really cool name. he thought it had something to do with heroin. Little did he know i was thinking of my favorite Father Ted episode in which the atonal Ted and Dougal enter eurovision. We did a cover of the song 'my lovely horse' which was insufferable. Iam still apologizing, years later, to friends who were in the audience.
