Eurovision 2006
Starbuck [17:44] Comments: 8 []

Sod Big Brother. The big TV news this week is the 2006 .

Will "dazzling" rapper and his bevvy of scantily-clad schoolgirls be able to defeat evil Finnish shock rockers ?

Teenage Life versus Hard Rock Hallelujah - you decide!

Having seen Daz on the telly the other night I must admit that I quite like him. He's no Eminem (he makes John Barnes look like an accomplished rapper), but he seems to be a thoroughly personable and decent chap.

But then again, Lordi have called an album "Arockalypse", and let's fact it, you can't really argue with that.

It's already gearing up to be the strangest Eurovision ever...

Ahhh, I was privileged enough to attend when the UK last hosted it. Me and my little sis took the National Express from London to Birmingham and got changed into our 'finery' in the coach-station loo. It was a night to remember, what with Dana International beating Guildo and the Orthopaedic Stockings and what have you. The contest ended around 11pm, but our coach back to London didn't go until 3am, so we were left idling round the Bull Ring for many an hour. When we finally got home, at around 8am, we watched the whole contest straight through again on video. Good times.

Guido? Wasn't he Colin's boyfriend in Eastenders some years back? Or was he in Star Wars?

And what are the Orthopaedic Stockings?

Very impressive stamina though, Salsky. Watching it all again as soon as you'd got back home. Some years its bad enough watching it the first time round!

Incidentally (and sadly) the UK one was pretty much the only one that I've missed.

Oh, and Saturnyne: Yes. And you know you loves it, despite hating yourself for it.

Right bunch of wankers in the house this year. As always.

Lordi - champs. Wow. Sampson was crap. I mean. Come on. What jury in Europe's gonna vote for a
(c)rap "song"? Come on.

Loved the Hoff Invaders game. Dunno about yours, but jokey e-mails about Hoff (and Chuck Norris) are circulating my office, for some bizzare reason.

Oh Lordi. They certainly were champs. They reminded me of the biggest of the Muppets (back row guys), especially when the female host kept referring them as "the monsters". Wonderful seeing them being kissed and presented with bouquets of flowers.

Thinking about Daz Sampson, then yeah, it is a funny song to expect Europe to vote for in Eurovision. Bastard thing's stuck on my internal jukebox though, right next to Hard Rock Hallelujah.

Romania deserved to win I reckon. Russia was suprisingly good (my opinion on it improved as it went along).

Lithuania ought to be cast out of Europe after "We are the winners".

Germany ought to get Hoff on board.

Internal jukebox? Wossat? Yer cheap imitation iPod (tm)(c)?

Thinking about it. The EuroVision, I mean, you dutty devil! Perhaps it wasn't the EuroVision.

Maybe it was an episode of Doctor Who? It woulda kinda fit in. I mean. Monsters winning EuroVision. Come on.

PS Wonder why we can't use the <u> tag in Comments...

My internal jukebox is so cheap, all the technology it uses is the subconscious mind.

Like your Who theory - makes pefect sense. Like Episode 12 of the last series.

PS 'Cos it might look like a link.
