Watching Eurovision song contest and other catastrophes
So this past weekend, the Eurovision song contest took place. In case you are like most people and are wondering what the hell that is, you are not alone. Outside of Europe, I mean crazy Europe,I am sure no one knows what it is or the joys of watching it.
Honourable mentions Eurovision song contest 2019
Germany got zero points from the audience
There is something inherently mean about Eurovision song contest.The ladies who represented Germany were okay, perhaps not the world’s best singers but decent enough to sing at your aunt’s 75th birthday. That the continent gave them zero points is something someone should consider writing a thesis on.
Sweden was represented by an all black group
Seeing this band filled me with both joy and terror. Joy at the warm beautiful performance and terror at the clenched fists and fury that I was 100% sure they were causing across the continent. I have no illusions about diversity. Many people can tolerate one or two ‚foreigners’ representing their country. A whole bunch of them and you are risking a full blown meltdown.
Britain was number last, again
For the sake of all the good people of Britain, I would like to pretend that I was surprised or that it was because of Brexit but it is just not true. The most consistent part of Eurovision Song Contest is that Britain almost always ends up at the bottom.
