Well, folks. Tamta said "time is moving slowly", but we have evidence toward the contrary, as Eurovision is upon us.

2019 - Laughably Weak Fences, and Why You Must Scream

5/8/2019
More
Well, folks. There are many reason why a person would don black clothes and proceed to scream. We have four such acts doing four such things, and we try to figure out what makes them scream - be it defiance, resentment, anguish or hatred.

2019 - 10 | Belarus, or "Temporal Whiplash"

3/26/2019
More
Well, folks - the year is 2069 and that has some pretty heavy implications. Our consciousness has been assimilated into the emotion vortex, where there are sad reacts only. It has become impossible to enjoy anything. However, a faceless megacorporation is offering a revolutionary app to change our lingering feelings of sadness into feelings of warmth and mirth. We must keep our phones turned on at all times, to benefit from the effects of CMFRT-ZONE. Yes, it will allow their satellites to...

2019 - 9 | Spain, or "A Thousand Sex Points"

3/24/2019

3/9/2019
More
Well, folks. We recorded this one on March 8th, and thought it best not to wait too long to put this one out. In this episode, we talk about, well, the usual subjects really. I erroneously thought Tamara Todevska was at all involved in writing this song, which explains why we don't go into the fact that the writing team on this song is just a buuuunch of dudes. Happy international women's day, y'all.
