Never had curry but sounds painful!!
Did you eat the curry with your hands? 😆
I really want an Indian takeaway, have you ever tried Kashmiri Aroma?
The art/music room sounds awesome. Happy for you. Planning to build mine out soon. Any tips/suggestions? Will soundproof space as much as is possible.
My advice is only soundproof in corners and around the listening area. You do not want a dead sounding room. Also use cheap building insulation over professional sound foam. It does the same job
Good advice. Thanks.
This tool might be handy, too http://www.roomeqwizard.com/
Sounds like a beautiful day ahead for John T, but a day of tragedy for Mickey, Jerry, Minnie, Speedy Gonzalez, Remy, Mr Jingles, Ratburt, Ben, Chuck E Cheese and the Three Blind Mice. #RatLivesMatter #StopTheGenocide #JusticeForRodents #NoMoreMrMiceG
In the 28 days since getting a cat flap he's killed 35 various rodents.
hmmm, cat flap... I wonder if my cat would like that. Guessing she would. But concerned she'd get lost or hit by a car. I'm in the city. You?
I'm in the city but my front door faces onto woodland/park/golf course/farmland. I don't let him into the back garden and the cul de sac. I use a microchip cat flap so I get no unwanted visitors
🤣👍 cool comments

Excellent. I hadn't spotted that!
Easy does it panda friend. Getting our needs met it really important. I'm impressed you know what you need. Can you turn your phone off for just a few minutes? Take a break?
Cyprus with El Diablo. The singer wearing a dress of jewellery gets the party started with a forgettable pop stomper. They've never won. I don't think that'll change tonight
Albania also seems to be wearing just jewellery. Her staging is interesting. A video of fart gas puffs through the air at start of every bar. Bonus points for traditional instruments though. A powerful song but it won't have wider appeal.
John. Fantastic interpretation of the first songs.
It's all exciting. Wish the BBC would stop going on about Belgium being old
Israel next. The first singer to wearing fairly normal clothes. She's striding about with attitude and now she's changed costume… and squealing. Gets a loud cheer.
Belgium now. The first “normal” song of the evening. It's a good song but the performance is somewhat lacklustre. Might do well with the jurys but probably not the popular vote's cup of tea.
Russia should have kept on the motorised dress much much longer. It's the only good thing about it
The first one of my favourites… Russia! A woman in a giant dress transforms into a red boiler suit wearing badass telling women that they are strong! The chorus is great and traditional instruments bonus points.
Malta with a electro swing pop song which is very, very strong. Her voice is unreal. It's not my favourite but it could be a winner, this.
Portugal. Beautiful staging. Black and white. Understated band set up. My convinced by the singer's voice but it's a strong ballad. Might have done better in Portuguese maybe.
Loving these summaries
Serbia. Chorus sounds a bit like the Macarena. Generic boring pop song. Key change bonus points.
UK. The positivity seems forced. A big cheer for some pyrotechnics. The dancers are going for “epic sax guy” vibes. It's not quite there though.
How many zips do you need on one coat
John. Better commentary than Graham Norton
Greece is dancing with an invisible man. It's clever staging but the song is a bit of a yawn. One of the dancers nearly dropped her, adding to the drama
Surely they could find some male EY candy in greece
Switzerland next. Minimal ballads do well at Eurovision… but with Dad dancing? I'm not sure about this. It's a good song well sung though
Gutted that Iceland can't be in here live due to coronavirus. Watching the dress rehearsal. Such a cool, cool song! I hope it does well!
Don't you want a jumper with your own face on it
Iceland to win.
Spain. I don't think this will trouble the leaderboard. (Famous last words?) This is complete with bad falsetto. Muted applause.
Moldova. This is similar to a few of the pop bangers at the start except maybe not as good. She dropped her microphone. Whoops. A very long note… and the end.
Germany with “I don't feel hate”. Lucky that… (no, I quite like this silly monstrosity) it's errr very Eurovision
How unfortunately that when dancing the peace sign hand accidentally gave the middle finger
Finland with nu metal. Eurghhh. Very Linkin Park. It'll do ok but not win. Massive roar from the crowd
This thread is my Eurovision highlight this year
Bulgaria. Very modern sounding singing style. Won't be everyone's taste but could do surprisingly well with jurys. I liked it.
Lithuania are the best dancers in the competition. The singer (in high heels) is a legend. The song in the cancelled competition last year was better though. Good fun!
Ukraine are my favourites! Any band with whistle (or sopilka in this case) gets my vote. Interestingly the original version of this song they did is better but too long for Eurovision and used traditional lyrics which aren't allowed.
Lithuania was so clean and polished. Ukraine so wild and energetic. Whichever wins I will be happy
France next. I like this one but my cat has put a dampener on things by farting… thanks Clem. Definitely one of my favourites more so now than before the competition. A good sign
Azerbaijan has some snake charmer vibes behind a pop banger. Think if Lady Gaga had a bollywood phase. Will get the Dad's vote I expect.
Norway representing mental health! Cheese anyone? 🧀 Sounds like a early nineties boy band. Angels and demons. Isn't that a book by Dan Brown?
Netherlands. Uplifting anthem promising revolution and strength. Future the competition's most energetic dancer. It'll struggle I think
Italy. They are rocking and certainly are dressed for occasion. But will they win? They definitely made the effort. The bassist looks like she's having a great time! Pyro!
Sweden have a song called a million voices. It's an earworm. And a key change, nice.
San marinos costume is a poor imitation of russias
San Marino and Flo Rida. This song reminds me of an earlier one, but is less likely to get lost with being the final song. A fitting end to a fantastic show. Will go to bed and follow the voting from there
🙏🏻 thank you for making me switch Eurovision on 😃🐼
Thank you girls, I don't watch this show,but with you it is super awesome,great warm talking, 💞💥
John. You need your own TV or radio show
Italy wins!!! Congratulations! Iceland got a plucky 4th without even getting to perform for the audience
Hope you feel well John.
I always feel well! 😁 (it's just my threshold for wellness is incredibly low)
You are a superstar.
Are you watching Tonight?
Good luck. 2nd vaccine was harder on my body. For others, no symptoms or mild symptoms. Either way, hope the boost does the body good in the long run.
Well done you, glad you're taking it easy. My second is in a fortnight 💪
I'll keep an eye on the results but I don't want to spoil Saturday
Reality is often disappointing
Sounds like the lyrics to a song. Chorus: 'Got my own mf house, so yeah' Repeat.
Got to be a Danny pack. Bum bag is so 80s. I guess the difference is where you wear it?
I wear mine with a loin cloth. #trendSetter #fashionista #influencer
John I need your help,please tell me ,,mind the gap,,what does it mean?,,Watch out ,,in any situation?or it's just about underground?it's your traditional phrase but only about gaps?
It's generally used on trains and related transport. In can be used as an insult for teeth or the gap in a league table between football clubs.
It's only about gaps
Thank you so much.help me a lot)⚘
Maybe distract yourself in another part of the house. Hope it helps
Can the cat have a harness?
No you need to harness cat from when they are kittens he's three years old now
Zivert ,,life,, song🙂
Never too much Indian food 😋
Agreed. Knowing theres leftover Indian food in the fridge would make me happy, too.
Thanks Лео. A bit light for your taste. I recommend deftones - fireal, mogwai - fear satan, пасош - россия, and whole album the blood by reykjavík!
Yep, I've heard deftones, and i kinda prefer Буерак rather than Пасош, by the way, check out Культура курения, it's a former band of bass pkayer from Буерак, sadly they btoke up like 8 years ago
I did listen to the one by them on your playlist. It was good
This is just me slamming all my favourite bands together (except All Time Low) into a playlist https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0VgIerVf0Q29BSUQ3xbEAV?si=623EKWr1QoiYFgfLLSGvzg&utm_source=copy-link
Very good. Waiting for mine.
