The Accordion Connection

Simone says there's a popular indie rock band called the "Accordion Connection, you know, that one with all the guys on stage at once, and one of them has a drum? You know who I mean". Anyway, this is an unrelated blog of bitchin' YouTube videos.

Americavision on Eurovision

The Eurovision Song Contest was held yesterday in Helsinki, Finland.

Gaby and I became fascinated by this competition last year when a metal band from Finland that dressed up like monsters called "Lordi" won first prize. "What is this magical world where hard-rocking monsters rule the earth and trannies, drag queens, and lesbians are allowed, nay, encouraged to perform incoherent dance songs in front of an audience of millions?" we asked, "some sort of Shangri-la? Can such a place truly exist?" Yes, Virginia, there is such a place, and it is called Europe (well, at least one day a year).

Here's the first place winner this year, Marija Serifovic (coughlesbiancough!), singing "Molitva."

I have no idea what this song is about, but judging from the redness of the light show going on around her, I think it's safe to assume she's plotting a lesbian-communist overthrow of the United States. I'm on to you, Marija! You and your red dyke army may win the Eurovision, but you will never win the war!

Second place went to this guy, Verka Serdyuchka, with his song "Dancing."

Um, wow. That kinda just took the words out of my mouth. Or maybe there just aren't any words in the english language for that.

And now for the song that SHOULD have been the winner this year, based entirely on the fact that it is the best dance song about vampires, by vampires I've ever heard. Here's "DJ BoBo" (I am not kidding) with "Vampires are Alive" (still not kidding):

Thank you, Switzerland!

And now, just for the hell of it, here's Lordi with "Hard Rock Hallelujah":

Rock on, y'all!

You see, here in South Africa the land of download limits, I cannot watch the Finnish metal. So every time you talk about a video I just close my eyes and have to imagine one in my head...It's playing right now and it's weird.
