Time to vote on my Eurovision 2010 Tweets

Tuesday, June 1st, 2010

Following on from a similar poll last year, it’s time to look back at the tweet coverage I did of the Eurovision Song Contest, and to pick out the line most likely to appear on a T-Shirt. yes it’s time to ask “what was your favourite line of my Eurovision coverage?”

What Was Your Favourite Eurovision Tweet During My 2010 Coverage

  • Show me on the Doll where the French song touched you. (46%, 32 Votes)
  • Dear Madame Tussauds, your waxwork Ziggy Stardust has escaped and appears to be singing for Serbia at Eurovision. (12%, 8 Votes)
  • Ani Lorak just called the BBC - she wants her box back. (9%, 6 Votes)
  • Azerbaijan missed a trick there. £100,000 to send on a stage diver and they could have played last. (9%, 6 Votes)
  • Brace yourself, here comes Greece and the ejaculating drums. Has anyone told Giorgios that his country has no money to host next year? Nope! (7%, 5 Votes)
  • Armenia's Eurovision song is brought to you by the power of wonderbra. Going for the minority straight vote?  (4%, 3 Votes)
  • Cock rock time!!! Start the dry ice, moody lighting, and the red converse trainers from the husk of Anna Bergenthal... it's Vukasin for Bosnia & Herzegovina! (4%, 3 Votes)
  • Turkey are to perform in monochrome and introduce the world to Mrs Stig from Top Gear. (4%, 3 Votes)
  • And it's another bloody flashback to Chitty Chitty bang bang with Truly Scumptious trapped as a spinning doll [Serbia] (3%, 2 Votes)
  • I still think that the male singer from Denmark looks like tennis player Andy Murray... but with 20% bigger ears. (1%, 1 Votes)
  • Azerbaijahn have hired Summer Glau for this song & roped in Victor from Dollhouse. No expense spared ( a rumoured $12MM PR budget) (1%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 69

Dear America… Please Vote Decisively

Tuesday, November 4th, 2008

I know a lot of my blog readers are American, so can I simply ask that you make sure you vote today. While I know who I would like to see victorious tonight, to a certain extent that doesn’t matter. What is important is that you cast your vote and the population makes the result decisive, either way.

My one worry, which I’ll voice here just so I can be thankfully proved wrong tomorrow, is that the vote is incredibly close, in a sort of Kerry/Gore close vote, and the perception (rightly or wrongly) is that McCain and the Republicans steal the election from Obama and the Democrats. If that were to happen, then there could be civil unrest on an order that’s not been seen for many. many years.

Be safe, America, and be strong. The rest of the world needs you.
