Seriously, dude, if you thinj that's interesting, you really need to get a life.
Oh yeah? Well try to forget this......
i'm interested...eurovision is awesome. at times its like the biggest car crash that you can't look away from. best trick to watch it though is to be drunk.
Israel is dull this year, last year was better in a bad Gogol Bordello sort of way. But this coverage makes me very happy, as now I have an outlet for my Eurovision fascination that doesn't include boring all my friends. Huzzah!
Thanks a lot Dan, as if I didn't have enough things to distract me from doing my work now I'm addicted to Eurovision. There should be a warning on these things, like "warning, viewing bad Eurovision videos may be habit forming"
When am I going to find the time to hoard wheat and rice??????
I educated my coworkers and our interns about Eurovision last summer when I forced them all to watch the drag queen runner up. I love that song.
I think it's the best thing ever. The sample of this year's entries leave a bit to be desired so far, but I assume they'll pick up in the next installment.
For the full Eurovision experience, you need Terry Wogan providing his inimitable sarcastic coverage for the UK broadcast. Hilarious. Eurovision is brilliant.
Dude! And some of yous posters have the gall to dis American Idol? Really? That vid was American Idol material all the way, fer sure...
@7: Fnarf, have you seen Azerbaijan yet? Now that is a classic Eurovision entry. And some of the novelty entries are pretty entertaining (Latvia has pirates, who are clearly the new vampires).
@9: That vid is a bit American Idol, but most of them are much, much better. You have to go watch Ukraine. Actually, the Ukraine from a few years ago that won is also pretty awesome, a Europop version of Xena, Warrior Princess...
I don't like Line Out. In fact, I get downright perturbed whenever I click on it by accident.
WoW! Zlad is the bomb! The "Anti-Pope" video is great too.
But that Israeli guy still sucks a bag o' dicks!
Dan, Schmader, anyone at Stranger HQ...
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE arrange a Eurovision watching party!
I wholeheartedly concur with MoTown. It streams on the Internet! Someone with a cable that can connect a computer to a projector should be able to show it.
Eurovision is probably one of my favorite things. It really is a train wreck...though some of the entries are actually okay, a lot of them are just so bad it's fun.
Also, there's a drinking game for it if anyone's interested...the one I remember was a bit more UK-centric, but whatever.
