The last I posted about Eurovision over here, I was commenting on how full of epic win the Russian entry was last year. I speak, of course, about Buranovskiye Babushki. I recommend that you see for yourselves just how adorable those grannies are.
But this year, Ireland's Ryan Dolan... or rather, his team -- takes the cake.
The team have got ALL the drums I can play and want to play the most -- bodhrans, taiko, bass drums. And I'm not even going to mention that Colm Farrell (one of the bodhran players) is eye candy like many others say. My eyes were fixated on the drumming throughout.
And now this reminds me...
These are times when I wonder at the simple bodhran playing I am able to do. I've long yearned to thunder rhythms of joy to many, many people. Yet there isn't much to my stage demeanour... unless you count childlike abandon, impromptu dancing and twirling as good stage demeanour. And I don't know if I have much of an audience either. I guess that can be fixed, but what's worse is that there's no one I can accompany (and no one who can accompany me). Bodhran players are rare in these parts, and because of this, I find myself rather out of place.
(P.S.: Triskele, I wish you were active on Newgrounds now.)
