Fabulous speech throwing some reality into the faux-sadness that seems to be pervading the reactions to the death of Margaret Thatcher. Thatcher was an evil c*nt. End of story.
Glenda Jackson reminds us why this evil entity should not be remembered with any fondness or respect.
Julia Gillard is still Prime Minister of Australia
What a day! And they say a WEEK is a long time in politics. Oi vey!
But thank god at the end of this day Julia Gillard is still Australia’s Prime Minister. The list of her achievements is long and distinguished. Not that you’d ever know it from reading/watching/listening to the Australian media.
What will happen in six months time? Who knows? It seems our future is to be decided by the self-obsessed greedy bogans of Western Sydney.
Then Australia will really need to say “God Help Us!”
Euphoria 2013 single cover
Loreen’s f*cking unbelievable version of “Euphoria”, with Swedish schoolchildren from Adolf Fredriks Musikklasser, has been officially released on iTunes (at least in Sweden) to purchase.
This is a 4 minute 11 second studio version of the song that was performed on the final of Melodifestivalen 2013.
EUPHORIA 2013 is magic. It is magnificent.
Do yourself a favour – if you can, BUY IT IMMEDIATELY!
A very special version of “Euphoria” from last night’s final of Melodifestivalen 2013. Incredibly moving with children from Manilla Skolan in Stockholm -a state school for deaf and hearing impaired children. The children’s voices come from Adolf Fredriks Musikklasser. This has had me in tears it is really so beautiful.
Terrific English language interview with the newly reformed-for-Melodifestivalen Army of Lovers!
Oh my god…I said love, I said pet, I said love….
ARMY OF LOVERS shook Melodifestivalen 2013 to its very core. Or perhaps they just woke up #melfest after a pretty dull year.
What a performance! What an act! What a song!
As others have been saying, this spectacle is what Melodifestivalen has been sorely lacking this year.
Soooo fabulous to have them back even for one night! (And possibly also with a new compilation CD including a couple of new songs!)
“I was born seven million years ago in Sweden, Africa. I am La Camilla and I rule thew world”
I remember back about a hundred years ago watching Video Hits one Saturday morning and there it was: “CRUCIFIED”. I sat there open mouthed in shock. And awe. I immediately got ready and went into HMV in town to look for the single. Luckily they had it!
So many crazy records and clips followed….ARMY OF LOVERS were true originals. And Saturday night’s performance showed that they still are originals. This one had everything AND the kitchen sink!
Well Melodifestivalen 2013 has been a bust, hasn’t it? You’d think SVT had deliberately engineered it this way to make sure Sweden doesn’t win again and have to pay all those costs to host Eurovision for another year!
Even the opening credit sequence for SemiFinal 1 – which usually gets me electrified – was very “same ole, same ole…but even less!”
David Lindgren is probably my favourite at the moment – not having seen the 4th semi final (will someone in Sweden please upload these faster!!!!)…but the standard of the songs overall has been pretty dull. And I hate to say it but Gina Dirawi has been rather dull as Melodifestivalen hostess. Danny started off badly but is getting better week by week. A couple of interesting half-time shows don’t make up for an overall “Zzzzzzz” Melodifestivalen 2013!
Well, until last night!
Alcazar were back together….with Danny Saucedo guesting on “Not A Sinner Nor A Saint”. Danny looked ecstatic to be part of Alcazar for the evening and it was truly wonderful to see. I was at Alcazar’s farewell performance at Stockholm Pride a couple of years ago so it was a bit of a shock to see them back together on stage. What gives??? Well, Army of Lovers are back this year so maybe you can raise the dead!
The performance of the four of them really put a smile on my dial this morning when I saw it on Youtube. And they all look fabulous…Tess in particular is just a stunning looking woman. And Danny Saucedo looked extra fab! I follow Danny on Twitter and Facebook and he puts up sooo many random selfies it gets tiresome at times. God love him! And a lot of them are a little bizarre to say the least…in this clip with Alcazar he just looks normal and terrific and happy. More of that please!
Alcazar – as a threesome – did some more on the Melodifestivalen stage last night…see the clip below. It was like old home week. Or should I say “old homo week” ;-p
