and then there was the cyprus rep... looking like she was wearing nothing much but glitter, heels and sleeves. and dancing like a stripper.

The standards for European broadcasts are a bit different than what we pretend to enforce here in America. The whole European attitude about sex in general seems way more evolved that what I see around here. I'm not sure what accounts for the difference, but it certainly is interesting because half the people in this country have ancestors from Europe.

there was a thunderstorm going on, so i unplugged loki, but it doesn't give me any warning while running off the battery, so i never found out who won what as the damned thing just cut out. rude!
i did notice that until then cyprus had gotten quite a lot of votes...
but so did sweden, with a truly insipid offering.
it appears that my taste in this kind of entertainment runs afoul of the general population. i guess i'm old, looking the results up, israel wins, YAY! but... cyprus came second.
sweden was up there, too, finland 2nd to last. too bad, aalto has a fantastic voice, but i suppose they picked the wrong song.

Half naked Cypriots would, of course, garner a lot of votes.
I'm pretty much a curmudgeon when it comes to movies, television, and popular music. I don't hardly do any of that and it's been that way for many years. Sitting glued to the media machine watching and/or listening to the latest fads seems like a waste of time to me. It's much more productive posting inane observations on a bulletin board that's been obsolete for generations.

i spend way too much time watching tv, having gone from the occasional series to 2-3 looong hours a day! my job is basically a companion to an old lady who usually remembers me, but not my name, yet tonight commented on steve hawking we saw on a black holes program "he's dead now."
amazing how one's mind works. or doesn't.
of course, you can learn stuff... like, i now know that princess diana's bridal bouquet was 42" long. and that they always make 2 cakes and 2 bouquets since queen lizzie's cake and flowers got lost somewhere in the windsor castle in 1947... yes, the old bird's been married my entire life, minus 6 months or so.
actually, closer to gary's.

Scary how all of a sudden you can look around and discover that you have lived through an entire historical period.

even scarier when you backtrack to the 40's and think what's changed.

We are living in an era more than a couple generations beyond the '40s crowd. Naturally, I'd expect each new round of progeny to have it's own ideas about social structures and all. The differences, however, have grown exponentially over the decades. I was born in the '40s, but that's about all that is left of that era. And even I am considered obsolete in many circles.
