Eurovision 2015

There was a moment about half way through the voting when it looked like Russia was going to win. For what it’s worth, I’d taken a break from watching the contest to take the garbage out and had missed their entry, so I had no idea what the fuss was all about. In the Green... Continue Reading →

Melodifestivalen 2015 #4

As the opening beats from "Don't Say No" by Midnight Boy came from the speakers of my television, for just a brief moment, I was transported back to the 80s and to Brisbane's (in)famous nightclub, The Beat. Back in those days, Joh Bjelke-Peterson was still the Premier of Queensland, and I was a young man... Continue Reading →

Melodifestivalen 2015 #1

The "car crash" that was last year's Melodifestivalen (the Swedish competition which chooses an entrant for Eurovision) hasn't, so far, been repeated this year. Although the songs last year were reasonably okay, the hosts were terrible. The biggest problem with last year is the hosts seemed to have been under the impression (or were told)...

Äntligen! Äntligen!

Sweden's hosting this year, by the way, after Loreen... Continue Reading →

I've still got a copy of The London Times from when I first visited Europe in... Continue Reading →

Schlager Sunday

I spent a few minutes today going through a book I bought last year in Sweden called, "Schlagerbog". At its very core, it's a book about modern gay life in Sweden. The title, however, says it all. Schlager is a type of Swedish pop song. Bog is a poof. In Australia, you would call the... Continue Reading →

Schlager Night at Stockholm Pride

You know how I mentioned yesterday the drag queens at Europride made a very funny joke about Eurovision. Two drag queens dressed in full-length berkas came on stage and were announced as this year's winners of the song contest. In essence, it was about the changing face of the Eurovision Song Contest due to the... Continue Reading →
