WILL ya look at that? Monday morning, and, even as we type, NOT-Hazel is on her way back over to our house to tell us why she can’t clean as “thoroughly” as she’d like today. Reasons will no doubt include: A) she’s tired after spending all weekend polishing her jewelry, B) she just had her nails done C) she “forgot” this was our day, and has made “other plans” D) she never cleaned thoroughly in the past… why the hell start now?
WHATEVER, if we don’t get busy with the “pre-clean” it’ll be our fault the counters don’t get soft-scrubbed. So we’re racing through this post in order to have enough time to race through our own unique brand of “housework”.
WITHOUT the fabulous CD our dear PENGUIN thoughtfully brought out on her last visit, we might never have fully appreciated the joy — nay, the wonder that is: Eurovision. Which is, we’re happy to report, a larger, more festive, infinitely more entertaining version of its tawdy successor, American Idol. That’s right, we said it… Eurovision is hella awesome. Despite the fact that the “contest” ended a couple of months ago, we’re bringing Eurovision up now because we need a good song with which to A) kick off a new week, in order to B) counter LAMPSHA’S dreamy spin over the weekend, but also because C) it’s freaking hilarious, yet D) hella kick-ass.
CONTINUING with our nonsensical-yet-alphabetically ordered train of thought, we decided it would be hella cool to feature cross-dressing Ukrainian Verka Serduchka’s energetic performance, because A) we like it, B) he/she comes as close to a Russian entertainer as we can find on such short notice C) Wednesday is Russia’s official Day of Conception (thanks for that fab info, Actonbell) D) screw you, since when did we need a reason to share something hella kitchy in the Snark? Oh, alright…we confess. Originally we planned to share Russia’s Eurovision Entry, what with the “conception day”/slutty Russian performers, and all. But then we got distracted by Verka’s shiny costume, and all bets were off.
MUSICAL opposite? Oh yeah. Will you laugh? We did. That said, the only thing you’ll find “cheap” about this video is the fact that teh funny little Penguin featured it on her own blog back when it first aired on… what? That’s right, on “Eurovision”. Meaning we could have used something else, this time around. But guess what, we thought it was hella fun back then, and we still do. So shut the hell up, and enjoy.
WE’RE happy to report there’s more — so much more — to know about Verka Serduchka. Anyone with more than a passing interest should start with HIS/HER WEBSITE, (tho’ good luck with that, unless you speak the language, you’ll be up shitska creeksa) and work your way over to HER/HIS MYSPACE page (much easier to “read” and the videos are fabtastic). Knock youselves out… and danze away this Monday like there’ll be no tomorrow — even tho’ there will. Not only that, but with any luck at all, CRUMMYJOEL* will get over the Wolverines’ latest loss (d’oh!) in time to whip up one of his hilarious posts. Otherwise, we might have to do another one of our own, and you know what that means… Sieben, Sieben Ai lyu lyu ein, zwei, drei! (in other words, we haven’t a clue)
*UPDATE: Happy Happy 3rd (!) Bloggaversary, Not-at-all-crummy-CrummyJoel! Whoa — we knew you were special, but we had NO idea you’ve been dazzling church-sign lovin’ folks for nigh on to 3 years! “‘The size of the tool doesn’t matter in the Master’s hand’ — it’s a whole different story if you ask Mrs. The Master“?? Hahahaha. Clearly you’ve always been good at this “crummy church sign” humor thing! Here’s hoping you entertain us with “crumminess” for many years to come — with or without The Master’s help (and/or His hand).
note: had we wanted to take our musical opposites/cheap laughs thing to all new lows, we would SO have featured the video you’ll find on MTV’S SITE from last night’s opening act… ‘cuz, damn. Not just “damn”, hella damn.
