Dear Professor,

It seems that you have an, indeed, profound knowledge of the Greek spirit, general behaviour, our customs and culture, our beliefs and values... What can I say... I am humbled by your expertise and bow before the grandeur of your assumptions... It seems that you have thouroughly studied our 3000 years of MODERN existence and the even more ancient ones... You have hit the nail on the spot about our values and how they were born, how they were perceived by other cultures, how they were twisted by other civilisations, how they came to fall, how they came to light yet again, and how they still exist after all these years...

Bellator, don't you try to patronise me by saying words of advice for me and my compatriots cause you know nothing about them. I won't have YOU, whoever you are, commentate about the way Greeks behave. Do you want to start a flame war? You should be more thoughtful when posting things like the ones you did in this forum because you run in waters you don't know how deep they are

Did you really expect me to say anything more after what you said? What do you think I am? Some kind of a faithful canine who you would spank and expect it afterwards to come and lick your hand? Did you think that I would utter words of apology and explanation to you for what those people who I love and hate at the same time did? Get real!!!

Now its my turn for some advice. Before you say something in generalisations think twice. If you want an explanation as to why something happened then just ask first without comments and you will be answered. If on the other hand it was just a remark that you wanted to make, then this simply is an indicator about you and your mentality.

Cheers!

P.S. Finland, way to go!!!!!!!!!

Just let it go man, you wouldn't understand one way or another, irony is probably not in your blood. The boos were not addressed towards the performers. As you said it was only for the low points given. Whatsmore, when no points were given they didn't even care! Don't you find that strange? It was black humour.

Nevertheless I didn't like it when they did boo, cause I knew things like this would come up basically for no real reason.

MAte, I guess it wasn't the case that they were the best, far from it. But we rejoice because..

1) After 40 years of trying almost everything and still almost everytime end up last, Finland won.

2) The Eurovision contest has always been, in my view, a sorry bunch of schlagers, eurodisco etc etc with poor quality and lame presenters (Saki, geeez .... he was the most stuffed up "Kamaki" who has ever crossed my vision (sorry Jatro)).
To then see a mediocre, or pretty bad DeathMetal Band (playing a VERY lame rock tune with a pinch of pop), a genre who no one ever thought would even be considered to enter the contest, actually WIN the whole shabang, gives me high hopes for the Eurovision viewer's sense of humour. Lordi has, maybe unknowingly, changed a European "musical instution" forever, and for that I congratulate and thank them.

For me, Bosnia was the only song that held ground, our own Carola is only a relic from the 80'ies. She is a good performer and have an excellent voice, but *yawn*....

I must say you don't have a frikkin' clue if you think Lordi's a serious band. They're a joke and know it very well themselves.

Two great things about their victory:

1) They slipped one up ESC's whatsit. Think about it - a joke band winning the contest with best points ever http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

2) They slipped one up the whatsits of all moral guardians, religious nutters etc. who were trying to get them banned. Well, turns out those weenies didn't get what they wanted but got what they deserved instead http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Nightwish is (well, kinda was after TT left/kicked out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif ) popular, which does not equal it being the same category like mainstream in it's US meaning - bands made up and mass produced, pushed forward as a whole product package by the 'creatives' of the music industry, sometimes just a bunch of people put together who never know each other before. They started out as garage band if you like, what makes them different is that they didn't stuck being a garage band. Some listen to MS 'cos they think that's the trend to follow, and others will listen to UG because of the same reason, they think it's fashionable to be so 'original'.

As for underground bands, I've nothing against them, expect perhaps one in a hundred is actually worth to listen, while posing as if they'd stnd on high moral grounds as knights of the grail who refuse to sell themselves out - poor story if nobody wants to buy them in the first place. But if you are good, and successfull, after a point it is impossible to go around with a serious publisher, and as long as it doesn't hurt the band, everyone benefits from it. But, as I said, most underground bandsare just ain't good enough to get past a certain point - show me one with that Voice.. I'd be glad if you could prove me wrong though with a link to good UG bands. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Like I said, Personal taste.

I have been in the metal scene since I was 12, then when I turned 16 it went a step up and when I turned 18 I started working as a vollunteer in the Dynamo Hardrock and Metal Caffee and the Dynamo Open Air festival.

The Open Air Festival was killed by Mojo some time ago because they only booked mainstream bands and pretty soon nobody showed up anymore because the people that listen to that **** are mostly teenagers that cannot beef up the cash to go or are not allowed to go by their parrents.

I still remember the good times when you just tossed one guilder in a bucket and you where in.

I never had to pay since I worked there but the last Dynamo festival I can remember had a 195 guilder entry fee.

As for the underground bands being not worth listening to, I suggest you actually look further or your taste doesn't involve that kind of metal music since, well let's face it, you are a Nightwish fan.

My kind of music is far louder, faster (or much slower) and heavier then bands like Nightwish will ever be.

You just like that sort of music better but as far as I am concerned bands like Nightwish have nothing to do with metal music.

Here is an example band: www.pentacle.nl (http://www.pentacle.nl)

I would have rather had that the better team on ice had won the ice hockey semi-finals. Actually, it would have been of more worth for me than thousand Eurovisions. I am used to Finland absolutely loosing Eurovisions - it is normally an artistic career suicide to a performer to participate - they always disappear afterwards and never come out again - it is as if they needed the whole world to tell them how bad they suck before ending their career. I wouldn't be amazed if suicide percentage among finnish Eurovision contestants is particularly high. Too long lame Abba remakes - Not this time!

It was honey to the wounds, we had a great party. The best thing about it was that finally someone send a band up there to tell them to take their blimblom uftattaa Eurovision sh!te and shovel it up on their bums.

Ah at last an entertaining ESC.. I bet next year we only see death metal bands, and only one pop group, and surprisingly the only pop band wins, because it stands out http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

BTW. About Nightwish, they enterested ESC in 2000 (?), but finished 4th place thanks to stupid Finnish jury (though they did won spectators' voting ).. It was really sad..

Just let it go man, you wouldn't understand one way or another, irony is probably not in your blood. The boos were not addressed towards the performers.

Nevertheless I didn't like it when they did boo, cause I knew things like this would come up basically for no real reason. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Black humour ? Hmmmm.... so buuui'ing that last band off the stage two days before in the semi finale was also black humour ?? I didn't think so... (However the bands behavior afterwards was downright disgusting, but thats another matter..)

But it doesn't matter Jatro, I like the greeks anyhow, nice people and all, but the behavior diplayed at that contest just didn't land well with me..

I am a Swede who hate Carola more then Lordi, because Carola is far more scary then Lordi, she is satans daughter. or swedens "holy cow". but still, Finish rock is silly, and so is Eurovison. this is a quote from a finish rocksong "im bleeding blod from tears of heaven, it hurts of the pain that the doom gaved me, the scary wolf eat us every day, bloooood, bloood of tears!"

MAte, I guess it wasn't the case that they were the best, far from it. But we rejoice because..

1) After 40 years of trying almost everything and still almost everytime end up last, Finland won.

2) The Eurovision contest has always been, in my view, a sorry bunch of schlagers, eurodisco etc etc with poor quality and lame presenters (Saki, geeez .... he was the most stuffed up "Kamaki" who has ever crossed my vision (sorry Jatro)).
To then see a mediocre, or pretty bad DeathMetal Band (playing a VERY lame rock tune with a pinch of pop), a genre who no one ever thought would even be considered to enter the contest, actually WIN the whole shabang, gives me high hopes for the Eurovision viewer's sense of humour. Lordi has, maybe unknowingly, changed a European "musical instution" forever, and for that I congratulate and thank them.

For me, Bosnia was the only song that held ground, our own Carola is only a relic from the 80'ies. She is a good performer and have an excellent voice, but *yawn*.... </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Few facts about Lordi:

Lordi was grounded already in 1996.

They claim that they're serious in what they do and there's no parody or irony involved.

They admire KISS and horror movies, and the lead singer was apparently president of the Finnish KISS army.

I sort of like Nightwish. At least their lead singer looks better than Lordis.

Oh, and Skabbe's right about Carola, she must be the daughter of Satan. That's the only way to explain that she's still in business.

Somebody took a few clips of the other Eurovision contest songs and put them together with Lordi, and included bits of the vote counting and the final song. This gives some slight perspective how different the Lordi song was to the others - and definitely some idea how enthusiant, orgastic the Finnish announcers were http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
