Honestly they don't sound like great people, or particularly intellectually curious - you explained it well, there's no reason for them to be caricaturing it as nerd stuff. Especially since they're on Reddit. I wouldn't worry about them.

and the other communities don't steal banners from reddit:)

Still can't figure out if it would be a good thing or a bad thing to post the same threads in both of them😭 I love the idea of federation, but I'm still at the stage where it's all really confusing...

Thanks for this:) You might wanna check the local kbin links - swap the "c"s in the addresses for "m"s and they should be good

Imagine the staff mods trying to run AskHistorians💀

He was really done dirty by TVR - the song wasn't one of my favourites but he's obviously talented, it's almost like they sabotaged him on purpose (although I'm not sure why they'd do that). It's grim, so I'm glad he's angry and speaking out about it all.

It definitely seems possible. The thing is they could have had a cheap but good staging! He was a guest act on the moldovan NF and there wasn't really any stging, he was actually dressed well for once, it was the most effective performance of that song I've seen - they could have just gone minimalistic and it would have been fine... but instead they chose chaos

That fabric is so cute! The flag situation's fine, sure it's not comprehensive but I didn't spot any that shouldn't be there😎

It's really nice, and good on you for dressing for the occasion - it made the place so much more colourful and fun. I kinda wish I'd done something like that, in retrospect:/

Sleep deprivation is no fun😭 but you made an effort! And it looks great! I only got as far as "guess I have a sweater, that'll do"

let's just say I think it might actually be cursed😬 it was cosy though

IMO there aren't any massive surprises here, but that's not a bad thing - this year had some really strong national finals and I reckon at least half of these songs are brilliant :D

I'm going to predict the top 5, in no particular order: 🇸🇪 🇳🇴 🇮🇹 🇫🇮 🇧🇪

My top 5: 🇫🇮 🇮🇹 🇭🇷 🇵🇱 🇷🇸 (honourable mentions to 🇷🇴 and 🇮🇸 for being really fun)

I'm rooting for Ylivoimainen🙏 OGAE does tend to like female artists and Swedish entries, but they're not completely predictable... I guess we'll find out later in the year🤷‍♀️

Hell yes😎 The best song that shouldn't have gone to eurovision. I've been listening to some of their other stuff and it's so good

So according to Discord they've replaced "talent, drive and ambition" with "ambition, stagecraft, vocal ability, and confidence" in the submission guidelines😭

I guess they're trying to learn from the disaster of an NF they had this year, but it's not really the performers who were the problem. Some of them had potential! If RTÉ had invested in a bit of artist development - vocal coaching, getting comfortable with the cameras, etc - they could have had something good on their hands. But that's a different timeline...

Also: why do they only want MP3s in 192kbps?

Hi! I didn't know you were here (kbin only switched federation on yesterday)

and... um... so now there are 3 new eurovision places😭 I don't know what's the best thing to do! I'm new to all this...

It's great that you're here though:)

edit: I'll message you about this a bit later (can't seem to do that from here right now, so I might have to sign up to feddit) - def want to try and help get a community going somewhere.

I'm surprised there isn't an antiwork yet - the fediverse feels like a good place for it

https://kbin.social/m/eurovision@chirp.social is a thing (I'm trying to make it more of a thing, but this is June😭)

edit: I've just found out there's a https://kbin.social/m/Eurovision - keep an eye on both of them for now

I found a Path of Exile one: https://kbin.social/m/PoE

It's empty at the moment, and the microblog's collecting hashtags as in Edgar Allan... but at least it's there.

Listening to The 1975’s Oh Caroline (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJOzUpNaD6Y) and I can’t unhear the Bill Wurtz style:

@chrispoole I know I'm replying to a month-old comment, but I was searching for Bill Wurtz so here I am:) And you're not wrong, that song's pretty sweet!
