Eurovision Song Contest, same procedure as every year. And... I don't get it. Why Sweden? Why? What was so special or great about that song that it won? I can't even remember the melody or lyrics and only barely the title ("Euphoria"... and I don't really get that, either. There was nothing euphoric about it, that much I remember...). What. I don't even. What?

Iceland, I would have understood. Their song wasn't such a bombshell as last year (I still can't stop listening to that song) but after one or two times of listening to it it had a lot of appeal and was certainly more special than Sweden. Also, it sounded a lot like Runrig. Maybe that helped, too...

Turkey, I would have understood, too and I would have loved that. There was so much joy in that song and you could see that the guy singing it had a lot of fun. It was so great just watching him and listening to him sing that song.

Russia, oh Russia. Your babushki... wouldn't that have been cool? Wouldn't it have been great if six grannies from Russia won the biggest entertainment event worldwide? I mean... that would have been almost greater than Lordy winning in their year. Maybe even greater than Lordy.

Cyprus, hell, even that would have been better than Sweden. I actually recognized that song, unlike the Swedish song. Can anyone of you remember the Swedish melody here? Because, as mentioned above, I can't for the life of me.

Ourselves, of course... even that was better. Actually, Roman Lob gave a hell of a performance and eighth place is to be respected as a very good result. He gave everything and he got rewarded for it and uh... I'd like to thank all countries that awarded him points :D

Anyway, the two countries I would have liked to win didn't even make it to the finals. Either Latvia (their song was the most meta song I ever heard, in a way... I mean, it's a song for the Eurovision Song Contest about a song for the Eurovision Song Contest...) or the Netherlands (because a girl with a guitar and in Native American dressup never sounded so good, and I'm sure the Native American getup had some meaning... oh, well, actually, I know the meaning of it. Huh.), that would have been awesome because both were songs with character and just a little... extra something. Which is why I'll embed both videos under the cut.

Two REALLY good ESC songs )

Title: The Answer, My Friend
Fandom: Generation Kill
Rating: M
Genres: gen, Brad/Ray, if you squint. A lot.
Summary: "For a moment, you try to be disgusted with yourself because folk, isn’t that the sentimental, naïve little brother of country, even more retarded?"
A/N:  It's all Joan Baez's fault. Any my parents', because they introduced me to Joan Baez, way back when I was a kid and they were as hippie as you could be as an East German who wanted to keep your job and not go to jail. Thanks so much to my parents for introducing me to Joan Baez (although Ray would probably disagree).

Also, a gift to [ profile] 0_noctifer_0 and a contribution to opening a Generation Kill category over at (once I translated it, that is). Yes.

gelbes_gilatier: (fanfiction/fanart)
No idea why I just decided to write another "30 Days" entry but... why the hell ever not? It's certainly better than wondering however German politics could turn into what they're today, for example. That is to say, the Conservatives suddenly trying to defend the decision against military action and the social democrats suddenly arguing they should have agreed... and me agreeing with the social democrats. I usually don't agree with social democrats. I agree a lot less with the Greens (almost never, actually... stupid disgusting two-faced coalition whores, the whole lot of them. What? They are!) but I don't agree very often with the social democrats, either. But this time I do. More than I agree with my own party, the socialists. Very confusing, all of this.

So let's move to something a lot less confusing. Talking about writing! Yeah, I can do that!

First of all the questions I already answered:

1. Tell us about your favorite writing project/universe that you’ve worked with and why.
2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
3. How do you come up with names, for characters (and for places if you’re writing about fictional places)?

4. Tell us about one of your first stories/characters!
5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?
6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol’ pen and paper?

Next one:

7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?

Look what they done with my song, ma... )

  • 00:25 Mehehehe, @just_addcoffee's enthusiasm for Lena was so cute *lof Thank you for rooting for her, even though you're not European :) #
  • 00:35 Also, for all the followers who read SGA fanfiction AND followed #Eurovision: miss_porcupine's AWESOME Eurovision fic, #
  • 01:43 OMG! First time EVER that the world wide trending topic on twitter is German! (Lena hat gewonnen is the topic in question). YAY! #
  • 01:46 Quick, someone make a screen shot & save it! This is probably the first AND last time the No. 1 world wide trending topic is be German. #

  • 20:58 Aaand... we're on. Same procedure as last year... yes, it's #Eurovision Song Contest time again. Go #Lena! (what? I like her, OK?) #
  • 21:09 Oooh, jeez, #Lena's number is 22, so we'll have to wait AGES for her. Also... what's with phone voting before all entries are through, huh? #
  • 21:13 You know, I don't wanna be mean or something... but the Azerbaijanian entry is BORING AS HELL! Also... LED's on her dress? *rolls eyes #
  • 21:19 Okay, Spain's entry... had a certain something. And the Norwegian guy is... rwarrrr! #Eurovision #
  • 21:33 Love the @tagesspiegel_de live commentary for #Eurovision... scathing doesn't even begin to describe it. Utterly funny! #
  • 21:35 Apparently, young men with guitars and great talent are Belgium's new export smash hits. He can totally keep up with the greatness of #Milow #
  • 21:38 O.o The one thing east European entries are good for: WTF looks. But w/o them watching #Eurovision would only be half the fun :D #
  • 21:44 Ha! #Eurovision beats #SuperBowl (in viewer numbers, I mean)! Or at least that's what the girl on stage in Oslo just said. #
  • 21:49 I like the girl from Ireland. She's got a great voic & there's lots emotion in the song. If #Lena doesn't win, Ireland or Belgium are OK. #
  • 21:51 AHAHAHAHAHA! OPA! Why am I reminded of My Big Fat Greek Wedding all of a sudden? OPA! :D #Eurovision #
  • 21:56 Oh UK. Ooooooh UK. The only reason you are part of #Eurovision each year is that you're automatically in the finale...*coughs #
  • 22:00 Yay, Georgia. 'nother east European participant. You really can count on them to be... err... interesting *coughs #
  • 22:06 Eh... what's with the stroposcope light, Turkey? And the silver Power Rangers in the background? ESPECIALLY the Power rangers... #Eurovision #
  • 22:17 To answer the ARD commenter: Now I have no idea what the hood's about. All in all... interesting costume, Ukraine. Ahem. #Eurovision #
  • 22:21 No matter what they're saying... everything in French sounds like an immoral offer. And everything in German like a declaration of war :D #
  • 22:34 OK, I thought a song about apricots is slightly O.o but it does make sense (thanks ARD commenter for explanation why it had to be APRICOTS) #
  • 22:45 OK, he can really sing... I still don't get why Israel takes part in an EUROPEAN competition :S B/c, let's face it, Israel is NOT Europe. #
  • 22:45 Bu then again, certain other countries that take part aren't, either... #
  • 22:49 It's TRUE! The Danes ARE singing a mixture of ABBA, Tina Turner and The Police... that's kinda embarrassing. #Eurovision #
  • 22:56 Mh, I really think that this is Spain's first chance to win since 1969 (which was the last time they won). He was so... passionate. #
  • 23:20 You know, this is what I love about #Eurovision: Countless countries but for one day a year they all watch the same show on the same day. #
  • 23:29 Hape Kerkeling, charming as ever *luv Thank God not another 12 points for Denmark. Denmark SUCKED. Whoa, 8 points for a Slavic country! #
  • 23:46 AHAHAHAHA! 12 points from Spain = all the Mallorca tourists from Germany, I'm sure of that :D #

So called fanmixes. Went on a little CD cover spree yesterday and made my first one (with the help of[ profile] mackenziesmomma and her super picture finder skills). Title comes from my "Protect and Survive" series on (I promise, one day you'll find it all here as well). On it are all the songs of the stories yet published plus the songs for the four "Defining Moments" stories (since it's kinda like the TLM version of the PAS verse) and two bonus tracks (since they reminded mac and myself so much of Laura and Evan, respectively). If someone wants me to also add links to the respective lyrics, feel free to ask. Anyway, here you go:
