We (Norway) won the Eurovision Song Contest 2009! Ooo yay! We even beat the point record of all times with over 300, alsmost 400 points! Oh my, oh my, I’m sooo happy! :D And proud! :D I don’t even usually watch ESC, but this year I would say I was a great follower. Or good at least. So I wrote down this for you; the list of points we got:

12, 10, 12, 8, 12, 3 (say what?:P), 12, 12, 8, 12, 12, 12, 10, 10, 8, 8, 2 (say whaaat?), 12,10, 8, 10, 10, 10, 3, 7, 10, 10, 12, 12, 12, 10, 5, 5, 7, 8, 12, 8, 12, 8, 12, 8 – just look at all those 12-s! WE RULE. We got points from every single country, and almost all of them (except 7) were the top points (8, 10 and 12)! Oh my.

Now, my personal favorites were France (03), Armenia (9), Russia (10) and Moldova (13). And Norway (20) of course, I kinda have to feel that way, right?

These are the top 5 of ESC 09:

  1. Norway
  2. Iceland
  3. Azerbaijan
  4. Turkey
  5. United Kingdom

But a double congrats to Norway now! Congrats for the victory, and congrats for being May 17th – our Constitution Day. A GREAT day for us this year. Woho!

(This is him winning in Norway, will add the winning performance in Moskow when it’s out on youtube)

You know that Alice song/video? Pogo is the mastermind behind it (real name Nick Bertke). I didn’t mention it in the last post, because I wanted to give him a post for his own! You see, I checked out his youtube and last.fm page, and found a lot of other cool songs. I’m not usually into that kind of music, but this was really cool, ’cause he mixes these old movies in his music. Not only quotes, but also sounds that appear in the movie. You know Alice for instance? It’s 90% from the Alice in Wonderland movie! Cool, right? Check him out then!

Just kidding about the whole “Killers isn’t coming to Norway after all” thing. – Just in case you didn’t catch that. I mean, I don’t want you to cancel your whole summer of music just because of me :)

SO, to make it cleeear. THE KILLERS IS STILL ON! (for those who are going to Hove, that is.)

What the heck happened to Hilary Duff? December 21, 2008

Oh no, my dear Lizzie McGuire is growing up. But just because of the fact that she used to be Lizzie, makes the other fact that she can’t grow up :P Well, of course she’s like 20 (or something) now, but she can’t have videos like these (CLICK HERE). The whole melody and backround music is originally Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus”. It’s a really cool song. But I think it’s too early to remake it. Because Johnny Cash did that in 2002 and Marilyn Manson for just a couple of years ago. It’s obviously a popular song to remake, but like I said, it’s too early. And both Mr. Cash and Manson just remade the song. Cherished it in a way. Hilary (or probably not her, since she probably doesn’t write her own songs) just stole the melody and changed the lyrics into something else that just made it distasteful. OK, that was harsh.. And Manson’s music video is far more sexual than Duff’s. But that’s Marilyn Manson, you know. He’s allowed. And I guess he has a lot more to say in the matter. But Hilary Duff, I mean… “Reach out and touch me”. Hilary… Come on. You can’t be singing this while you’re touching yourself and having people in their underwear running around in your videos. You’re freakin’ Lizzie McGuire! Kids still love you and look up to you. And these types of songs don’t fit your childish voice anyway… And, haha, oh my God, that thumb-biting… Not your thing.

Day & Age November 25, 2008

Sooo, today I bought myself something nice. Like sugar and spice. The Killers’ new album “Day & Age”! Varga and I planned this “stunt” for three weeks ago (but it feels so much longer!), and now the day was finally here. You see, on Tuesdays we have photography all day. And we USUALLY get a task for the hole day, which USUALLY doesn’t take too long. So we just hang around and do nothing for an hour or something. So we planned that we could go and buy the album today (even though it got out yesterday), because it fit so well. But nooo, of course we had some stupid set up today. No tasks, and no one hour with nothing. But three hours with boring stuff in the photo-studio! Typ-i-cal! But Elaysi and I couldn’t wait ’til next Tuesday, are you crazy? So we ran down to mall during a 15 minutes break, bought it, took some pictures, haha

and then ran back again.

So now we have it. And you don’t! (Or do you?)
Anygays, when I’m on it, I’m going to dedicate this part to Elaysi. Because I bought the album with her. And I probably wouldn’t have bought it in such a hurry if she hadn’t been talking about it all the time :P Because she loooves them. Favorite band for shizzle-dizzle. And that’s cool-ity-cool. And I love the album, sooo, thanks Vargis ;D

BUT
I’m suprised Varga hasn’t written about it yet! I’m almost disappointed ! :O

Denser or dancer? November 6, 2008

There has been much confusion and debate over a lyric in the chorus of the song “Human” by The Killers. This is regarding whether or not Brandon Flowers is saying “denser” or “dancer”, when posing the question “Are we human or are we denser/dancer?”

Some have said that the lyrics do make sense because “dancer” might be appealing to the “marionette” sense of the word, in which case the song is asking whether we are human and make our own independent decisions or whether we just dance in a show made by, and perhaps even made for, someone else.

On Amazon, the editorial review for the album states the song says “Are we human, or are we dancer?” and also says that Flowers said the lyrics were inspired by a disparaging comment made by Hunter S. Thompson about how America was raising a generation of dancers.
(Creds: briefinsights)

Anygays, I just saw their apperance on the EMA on MTV, and it was sooo good and sooo cool. Funky backround too! Wow, imagine being there.

Ever Since I Was A Little Girl? July 19, 2008

You know that song “I’m not gonna teach your boyfriend how to dance with you” by The Black Kids? In the verse they’re singing “You are the giiirl that I’ve been dreamin’ of, ever since I was a little girl(?!)”… Wait… Isn’t it a guy who’s singing? It could be a girl with a really dark voice, too… I haven’t seen the music video, so I can’t say. But I just checked out the lyrics to see what the vocal’s really singing, and it IS “ever since I was a little girl”! Oh well, the song is really cool and catchy, though.
