Yeah and actually, Getafe is at the forefront of the struggle for workers rights in local industry. The most important trade unions in the city are the Workers' Commissions (CCOO) and the Unión General de Trabajadores (UGT). Both unions have branch offices in Getafe and list many local workers as members.

You know what, I'm enjoying 2019/2020 already. I'm glad people will be getting to know more about Getafe.  

Also we didn't win the league and there's a tense atmosphere within the club and the Portuguese football scene kind of sucks and Benfica fans are unbearable at the moment.
Man, all the Europa League match commentators out there better start learning that due to its central location within the Iberian Peninsula, Getafe is no more than 725.6 km from any Spanish provincial capital in mainland Spain.
Slovenia, Israel, Denmark, North Macedonia, Italy were pretty nice off the top of my head.

San Marino best meme song.

Norway is unbearable except for the bald meme guy.

I think you mean

Yeah, probably not from the start because it interferes with football stuff and I saw both semifinals anyway so I know the songs well by now.

I was hoping my own country (Portugal)'s song would get far this year, it was expected to do well back when it came out, but we didn't qualify and tbh a lot of other good (for Eurovision standards at least) songs didn't qualify either.

Kinda rooting for Slovenia now (stfu maco), it's probs my favourite of the remaining ones.
ElMaco We actually sent a joke song in 2011 (Edit: how do I link a youtube video without embedding it? URL is /watch?v=bEPCC3_COLs) which I think was supposed to be sort of a parody of 70s communist activists, the characters were part of a TV show which was popular at the time. This was at a time we'd kinda stopped caring and then we stopped participating for a few years and then we started taking it as srs bsns and we won.

And now Conan Osíris was sort of in between serious, meme and cult and there was huge hype around his song from the moment our national selection songs were released. Still very divisive here, I guess especially now that he failed to qualify.

slovenia was absolute garbage.

no u

But yeah, I actually listened to all the songs beforehand this year and don't think there's as much jokey stuff on Thursday. Norway does have some weird traditional singing thing mixed into a tacky pop song, I guess.

Though on that topic, Euro Neuro best troll song hmu

darude on eurovision 1st semi-final today. I don't think memers care enough to vote though bc the song is terrible and not even funny

The meme song is San Marino this year I guess. Not gonna lie, I'm a bit salty Portugal didn't make it, genuinely thought we had something interesting there. Was also hoping Poland and Hungary would go through, they had decent songs. At least Slovenia made it.

Also, the commentator on our national broadcaster introduced Darude as "known for his hit Soundstorm".

Well, then I'm clearly saying either one of them wrong.

Yeah it's pretty common among us Portuguese to mix those up, and Romance language speakers in general have a tendency to do so, because vowel length doesn't exist in our languages. The "oo" in fool is closer to our U sound than the "u" in full, but it's really hard to explain how.
That one leg on the side of the plate though

Also the loss of life in various countries is incredible, especially the per-capita figures


Interesting that Portugal had more deaths per capita than Belgium and a similar number of them but they were right in the middle of it and we had a really minor role.
H4T3BR33D3R Nah the account is still there. I haven't been posting that regularly since before tagging was a thing though, so maybe it's just me being dumb and a n00b.

  also specifically do you have the covers that are meant to be in a different style of the original cause someone did a sick deftones edm cover and it was amazing
EDIT:  This isn't me btw, it's Skinny91 but I can't tag him for some reason.

But yeah, I don't think OP means the songwriting game because that was like 2013-2016 (and very briefly 2018).

My last name contains the Dutch word for bomb ('bom'), so it was just a lot of variations on that.

Bom means good in Portuguese

Must be an over the pond thing.

Not that much, he's somewhat well known here in Portugal too at least. It's the top news item in some national news websites right now.
Yeah, Bruno de Carvalho is a fucking maniac and you see a lot of Sporting fans becoming disappointed with what their club has become. The thing is, clubs here are societies with elected presidents and the man keeps winning elections. And as a Porto fan this has been a fun spectacle to see from the beginning because lolsporting, but it really has gone too far at this point.

The first eurovision semifinal was TERRIBLE! What a fiasco! Thursday better not disappoint

Thought Belgium had the best song by far, too bad they didn't make it.
Meldo takes my vote
Yeah pretty sure here in Portugal there's no different gender scouts. We do have catholic scouts and secular scouts, and both include boys and girls. Not sure how they're organised internally, though.

This is now yanks r dum lol xD thread

After this bit, I kind of expected you to say you literally just removed a whole flat from a building with your Hulk powers and fitted it into a different building.
It's shite in salads but ok to nice in actual warm dishes. Doesn't really go well with everything though. It's used a lot in the south of Portugal but not as much here up north so I guess it doesn't taste to me like an everyday sort of thing but a bit traditional nonetheless.

MarkPaligar not a full breakup, but more people have left and joined the foo fighters dave grohl might be the only OG in there

That's pretty common in bands where one member is basically in charge, just look at King Crimson, Smashing Pumpkins or QOTSA.

Anyway, I'd forgotten that thing where you go for a second listen and become even more undecided.

Ended up voting for FoOltz. Reminded me of another song he had but I don't remember the name or lyrics but yeah an acoustic four-chordsy song.

Also, nice to see chev does drums now! And I spotted that one recycled section, nice.

Do any of these ring true with you international folks, or does it leave you dumbfounded as to how one nationality could be so awkward?

Nah, they all seem pretty relatable.

Edit: Just realised the location field no longer exists. I'm from (and live in) Portugal.
