Iirc they called Eurovision a hotbed of sodomy and liberalism. Lolol

Short memories. Have they forgotten TaTu?

A friend of mine from college was virulently anti-homosexual, but, he was quick to add: "Lesbians are OK".

it's okay if it's women, duh
It's common knowledge that you secretly want to be born in early 17th century Russia.  As a serf or a royal, I know not.  Chances are serf.

Austrians have changed.



Mozart would have lost miserably if he participated in Eurovision today.  But, hey, maybe he would have a shot if he wore women's clothing and had a beard.

Mozart is the only non-Russian classical composer I can tolerate....the rest are snoozeville.....Mozart on the other hand is genius in a person.

I frequent a Russian-language Old Believer blog once in a while but don't always have the patience to read it in its originally language. Thankfully, there's Google Translate. Unfortunately, it makes the site sound much more obscene than it perhaps intends to be.

For example, the phrase "Возьмем уровень пониже – духовенство от попа и ниже."  A proper, literal translation would read "Take the lower levels - the clergy from the priest and below."

Run through the translator, however, "the priest" is switched out for another word, a synonym for one's posterior.

Needless to say, it changes the tone of the site completely.

IIRC Dame Edna has now retired from stage and screen. Barry Humphries still dabbles in film and TV cameos.

.... though if Engelbert Humperdinck could be wheeled out for Eurovision, there could be hope.

"She's" a drag queen, i.e. anatomically and genetically male but dresses as a female. I'm not even sure he identifies formally as a female, in the way transsexuals usually do: when he refers to himself as a female it seems to be part of his stage persona.

Was that supposed to contradict me? The Wikipedia seems rather to confirm what I said: that calling himself "she" is part of his stage, drag persona and does not express his actual gender identity.

He may be gay (to his credit, he doesn't seem to advertise), but he doesn't seem any more transgendered than Barry Humphries or Alastair Sim. I'd never seen a drag queen with a beard before, and that, to me at least, suggests comfort with his male identity.

I'm worried about this Eurovision stuff.  Last time an Austrian with unorthodox facial hair tried to win anything in Europe, things got ugly fast.

Pffh, who needs you.

You know, you people don't give me enough credit. I for one think I'd be a great husband to Maria. Sure, I may not be able to give her diamonds and luxury, but I'd give her all the love that my little American Orthodox heart could muster. I'd introduce her to my dysfunctional family, wrap my arms around her and not let any Bolsheviks murder my little heiress, and I'd help her adapt to proleteriate life.

I'd take care of our little children like I do my sister, and I'd be a darn good husband/father--a lot better than some other rich heir monarch butthat who's never even changed a diaper or worked a day of manual labour. I'd make the departed royal family happy and proud :)

This is why I can't leave OC.net. I would miss this.

The Europeans have become such wusses that they can't even post a decent drag queen.  That creep has no flair.  He is nothing but a gender confused freak.  The hottest, sexiest, classiest, queen of Drag comes from the United States.  Even Putin could agree that the ultimate Queen of Drag is our own Rupaul!

I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

Coincidence?  I think not.
The term planet earth is an innovation which has arisen in recent centuries with the error of heliocentrism.

If one wants to confess a pure doctrine of Orthodoxy, they should be careful not to refer to the earth as a planet, unlike the current Pope as well as Patriarch Kirill and Patriarch Bartholomew, who regularly speak in error when they refer to our planet earth.

This afternoon I walked through the historic town center to see the 17th century houses, the medieval cathedral, the castle and the canals. Instead of feeling good and happy I felt a great sense of loss. Those buildings were truly sublime and they were a joy for the eye. The cathedral was awesome and those small, shaded 17th century streets were close to perfect. Sure, modernity has brought us some great stuff; the last two centuries have been an age of great scientific progress, but haven't we lost something as well? It seems we have lost a sense of Beauty, both in arts and in architecture, that we haven't been able to recover. In architecture everything must be rational and utilitarian and in the arts everything must be novel or shocking, but nobody ever seems to think of beauty.

On the way back I saw one of those hideous, 'artistic' buildings from the '70s, which was a combination between one of those commiebuildings and modern art; I shuddered. Where did it all go wrong?

You are my kindred spirit. I constantly complain to my wife about this.  I think she is tired of hearing about it.

In these days, when the forum is flooded with threads about ecumenism, controversies and bearded ladies, I like to think back to the days when I had just discovered Orthodoxy and everything was beautiful, exciting and wondrous. Those were the days, before everything became confusing and I had to spend every day concerning myself with questions about whether or not I'm making the right choices.
This is also when I realise that it has been 5 years. 5 years, and I still haven't converted. I'm not even sure if that is a good or a bad thing.

Sorry, I just needed a little rant.
