What is eurovision? I’ve heard people talk about it before and I feel really dumb because I have no idea what’s going on??
It’s a stupid song festival in Europe where one band/artist represents each country. It used to be one of the most important events, but now barely anyone cares about it.
EXCUSE ME MADAM
I BELIEVE WE MUST NOW FIGHT IN HOT AIR BALLOONS ABOVE LONDON
EUROVISION IS A TIME OF FUN AND HILARITY IN WHICH THE NATIONS UNITE TO WATCH GROUPS OF BRIGHTLY COLOURED IDIOTS PERFORMING SONGS THAT ARE CAREFULLY ENGINEERED TO BE THE EXACT OPPOSITE OF GOOD MUSIC
AND YOU HAVE TO TURN THE SUBTITLES ON BECAUSE THEY ARE INVARIABLY THE RESULT OF SOME POOR SOUL TRYING TO TYPE THEM IN REAL-TIME AND IT IS BASICALLY THE MUSICAL EQUIVALENT OF THOSE BOOTLEG MANDARIN LOTR SUBS
AND THEN THERE IS ‘VOTING’ WHICH MEANS ‘EVERYONE IN THE BALKANS GIVES EVERYONE ELSE IN THE BALKANS TOP SCORES AND EVERYONE IN WESTERN EUROPE PENALISES EACH OTHER FOR EVERY POLITICAL IRRITATION RECEIVED IN THE PAST YEAR’
AND YOU WATCH THE WHOLE TECHNICOLOUR FAILURE ON THE SOFA WITH SNACKS AND MST3K THE SHIT OUT OF IT AND IT IS GLORIOUS
“By not trying to [top it]. By being smaller. More personal, more painful. By being the next thing that should happen to these characters, and not just a rehash of what seemed to work the first time. By having a theme that is completely fresh and organic to itself. I want to know what makes them tick, what makes them flawed, what makes them fight — and ultimately, what makes them awesome. I go to these movies for those moments when the heroes define themselves, either through action or deliciously overwritten speeches.”—

it’s kind of ridiculous that we have to work our asses off for 13 years in school just to work our asses off for another 2-8+ years in college just to work our asses off in a job that we probably don’t even like, when we were born on this earth without a choice and i for one certainly didn’t sign up for that
in 9th grade i was getting picked on in class and this girl was like “fuck you guys leave him alone” and called me over to her seat and I was like “thx lol” and she was like “I have something special to show you don’t tell the teacher” and I said “ok” and she pulled a guinea pig out of her purse
I thought I was supposed to finish uni this year. After counting up how many subjects I’ve done or been credited for, THIS IS NOT THE CASE.
I could, theoretically. But I can’t afford to. I’d have to do five subjects next semester plus one February subject.
Same story here. Thought I’d be finishing this year; turns out even though I’ve finished the subject requirements for my degree, I still need 45 points in order to have the full 360. While I’d kinda been assuming that they had it structured so that fulfilling all subject/stage requirements meant you automatically ended up with the required amount of points for a degree. Silly me.
