It’s Eurovision Time Again!

Look out your lederhosen, it’s kitsch time. I heartily approve of this idea of recycling old acts rather than inventing crap new ones. Next year we should enter this:

Ahead of my Time – Eurovision

by craig on May 29th 2010 in Other

As usual, where Craig Murray treads, the rest of Europe follows in time. Of last year’s Eurovision song contest I blogged: Last night I voted for Azerbaijan because I thought the girl was seriously hot. Tonight I expect the rest of Europe will catch on. UPDATE In the end I voted for Armenia, as […]

I enjoyed the Eurovision song contest last night. I have more or less always watched it; great fun!

Live Earth

I am not going to be at all cynical about Live Earth. I think it is a wonderful event which will do a huge amount to raise consciousness on global warming, and lead both to support for the green movement, and improved personal energy-saving. The benefits will far outweigh the energy use of the production, […]
