“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.“
Earth was created out of nothing in the beginning of the book of Genesis. It is the mythology of creation in Christianity, the foundation of Christian belief. Other cultures have differing versions of creation, in some of them the creator of life was an earth diver falling from the sky.

SKYDIVERS! SPACEJUMP!

In the Native American Cherokee mythology the creator was a water beetle diving from the sky into water, reaching the ground, digging in mud and creating everything that was earth in the process. In the indigenous Japanese Ainu creation myth it is a bird that came and brought patches of earth together.
Creation myths have been significant in any culture to make sense of the universe, to establish a foundation of thought by trying to understand origin.

In every part of the world there are some people who lose their way, people who suffer from brainsickness. In the case of Georgia there are The Shin & Mariko, their level of mental illness is a worst case scenario. Their states of mind have lost so much order, they wish they could formulate a single thought that would not be considered complete nonsense by the rest of the world. Out of control they are rambling around, thinking they are musicians and confusing everyone around them. So Georgia decided to send The Shin & Mariko to Eurovision with the hope that they don’t find their way back home.
They have after all an important message to share with Europe on the origin of brainsickness: Just because you are bored doesn’t mean you should try and smoke the stuffing from your sofa!

SKYDIVERS! SPACEJUMP!

The 8th of May 2014 will be an important date in the history of Georgia. After European televoters and jurors mutually agreed that this is not only the worst entry of the second semifinal but also the most confusing ensemble that has ever entered the contest, the people of Georgia will hold their breaths that those nutcases don’t find their way home. Fingers crossed for them!

 

Has Denmark any idea about what is coming?

  1. wtf!!! nul points but i love it. pretentiousness is always so much more interesting than the mainstream. georgians clearly on the vodka again after last year’s by the numbers offering – great stuff.

  2. It’s Georgian at least!

    It’s nice to have some genuine world music at ESC. Fans caught in the bubble never see it or like it when it comes because Eurovision gives them all these romantic images of culture trapped in dated stereotypes – but deep down, all they really want is gay disco songs with traditional instruments in native languages performed by non-threatening but empowered women. I swear to god if Portugal’s entry in 2012 had a dance beat and a key change it would’ve made fans foam at the mouth.

    Apologies for the holier-than-thou tone, but I like to use Eurovision as a gateway/stepping stone to understanding the music and culture of other countries, not the be all and end all of foreign music, and I wish efforts like this would be appreciated more.

    Not the worst song of the year by any means. I could sit in a cafe watching them perform live quite happily. But yeah, at Eurovision, no. Just a rather dull and confusing 3 minutes of acoustic blah. It’s like a far less accessible version of Lithuania 2007. The live performance might lift it a bit, but I can’t really see it qualifying. I’ve forgotten how it goes while typing this.

  3. This feels like a reenactment of the Battle of the Little Bighorn.If General Custer had to listen to this hed of shot an arrow into himself to end the agony.
    Im starting to really worry for ESC this year the standard is so low.

    • The quality is low indeed.
      But overall I like where Eurovision is going. Back to roots – to songs. Big, dramatic, ethno-pop stage productions I find rather dated. I actually felt like “Only Teardrops” are on the verge of being outdated.
      So, yeah – songs are bad this year, but down-to-earth is a trend I like.

  4. skydivers!

    spacejump!

    oheeyaaheeeyahey CHING!

  5. Mad entries need mad reviews. Consider Georgia reviewed (sort of).
