  1. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    And so the whitewashing of Debbie has begun.... With Joseph now blackmailing her over her involvement in the acid attack on Ross everyone's anger will almost certainly be directed towards him when, or if, the truth comes out. All while Debbie (and Cain) will get off for what they've done. In other news: As expected Robert and Aaron have taken Sebastian away from Rebecca..... Yet another Dingle-brat is on it's way, and this time with Paddy as the father! O joy.... Sometimes I just hate this show so much!
  2. The Politics Thread

    I don't know how accurate it is but when they discussed Tillerson's dismissal on radio here in Sweden someone said that 43% of the staff in Trump's administration has left/been replaced during these first 13 months of his time in office. If it's true it's an astonishing number.

  5. Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon

    Yes probably, but that doesn't make it untrue. I do think that many of the songs would improve if they chose to sing in their own native language. When they sing in English you realize how cringeworthy many of the lyrics are and how uncomfortable many of the artists are with singing in English. I think it was a mistake to allow everyone to sing in the language of their choice. I know many, if not most, would disagree with that, but it's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.

  7. Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon

    We just had our national final here in Sweden, and Benjamin Ingrosso will represent us in this year's ESC with this song.
  8. What Are You Listening To?

    Australia's entry in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, and one of the very few entries that doesn't make your ears bleed.....
  9. Emmerdale: Discussion Thread

    I've been thinking the exact same thing. It's been my gut feeling since the start of this story that Aaron will somehow be turned into a hero and "save" Sebastian when Rebecca does something. I'm hoping that I will be wrong though.
  10. Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon

    So many incredibly bad songs!! I do think some of them would improve if the artists didn't sing in English, because then you wouldn't cringe at the horribly bad lyrics. For me there are two songs that stand out from the rest: Australia and Greece. In third place, but not quite in the same league I have France. If the remaining countries don't come up with something extraordinary then surely Australia must be the favourite to win. They have the best song by a mile, and the most professional singer.
  11. Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Lisbon

    I love the Greek entry this year. It's their best entry in years! It reminds of all the great entries they (and Cyprus) had during the 1990s: "Horepse", "Pia Prosefchi", "Sti Fotia", "Ime Anthropos Ki Ego" etc
