1. Can somebody explain why Britain and Ireland like pirates more than Europe do? I can't believe Latvia didn't win. Guh. with a hii hii ho and a hii hii hey... The Russian song was dull, I think. According to my score sheet, the song was crap but they performed it well, and their dance routine and outfit were slightly above average... The voting in Eurovision is CLEARLY INFLUENCED not only by the whole who-your-neighbours-are thing, but also by where you come in the running order, ie how drunk people are when they're watching you.

2. SingStar FTW. I can't sing, but SingStar is hilarious. And I made people download the Pipette's Pull Shapes so I could sing it. Hurray. Also Losing My Religion is not as hard to sing as I thought.

3. Taxis are more expensive than they used to be. Erk.

4. Is vodka and Irn Bru an acceptable drink? I have no idea. But it's perfectly drinkable. *falls over*

Bwah. NO. I would have to be much, much drunker than I was.

Although apparently you can do SingStar online.

It can't be worse than vodka and Red Bull.

I tend to agree with ayrton_nix that the only vodka worth drinking is vodka that's good enough to drink on its own ;)

Heh, I used to drink vodka red bulls a lot.

And yes, but I'd run out of wine :D

We followed Eurovision with SingStar, but competitively, as Eurovision SingStar. I won, representing Italy with 'Just A Gigolo'. Yes, we were drunk...

Ooh, excellent. We tried to sing Lordi, but we didn't know the song well enough and it went horribly wrong...

CLEARLY INFLUENCED
Are you sure that you were not influenced by Vodka and Irn Bru?
Shame on you, it's like putting Lemonade in a single Malt Whiskey!

Re: CLEARLY INFLUENCED
Yeah, but it wasn't good enough vodka to be bothered about spoiling.

1. Agreed. Eurovision isn't about music anymore. It's a political popularity contest, and it seems that the UK are still in the bad books over the Iraq War. At least we didn't get nil points.

2. Never played SinStar, but it sounds like fun.

3. Yes. This is true.

4, If tequila and Irn Bru and rum and Irn Bru are acceptable, then vodka and Irn Bru should be.

"2. Never played SinStar, but it sounds like fun."

The porn industry moves into mass market computer games ! Inevitable, I suppose.

And it does sound like fun ;)

Ha. I'm now trying to figure out how that would work.

Heh, no, we got points from Ireland and San Marino. I wonder how many Brits live in San Marino... Our song was crap anyway, though.

SingStar is fab! I may buy it... It's just not as good for the PS2 because you can't download songs. But I probably can't justify buying a PS3. But if I buy it for PS2 I can bring it over to laerad's some time :D

Given the total population of San Marino, it may have been one lone Briton on holiday voting for us. :)

We've been doing shit in Eurovision ever since the Iraq war. Having shit songs hasn't helped though.

1. Britain and Ireland Island nations with histories dominated by sea faring and the like. The Majority of famous pirates of the Caribean are British or Irish reflecting this.

Also is it that much of a stretch to assume that rather then using the Eurovision to make a political statement of neighbourlyness or anti-warness that countries close to each other physically and culturally have similar tastes in music?
