Thomas Röttcher - Curriculum Vitae

What they do not have to listen to everything in advance of the Euro Vision Song Contest: As a Swedish language therapist sounds, trying to imitate Ali G., as the one and titled as a dialect disaster. Others recall their debate to the one Australian Outbackbauern. On stage, she was moving like a "dementia sick horse", someone wrote in a forum, zappele Spotlight "Miss Kiss Kiss Negligible" spastic to himself, said even the FOCUS in the meeting of their first album.

But then she's shown all won in Oslo after their single "Satellite" had earlier stormed the German charts: Lena Meyer-Landrut, the new German Fräuleinwunder. Nobody polarized media landscape lately more more than the 18-year old, no split the nation into two parts in such a way.

Meanwhile, there is plenty of evidence that it is precisely the slope, the "Spun" is supposedly that fascinated and seduced "entrain" the masses. Björk has led the way, or even their Icelandic colleagues from Sigur Rós, the mostly sing in a fantasy language, and thus conquered the world.

Herein there is also the explanation why Lena is so successful: She lives and embodies what many leading figures of desire: maladjustment, courage to be different - and above all authenticity.

Exactly these attributes are missing in those who have the final say in this country. No wonder, therefore, that the vote would be preferable to a ballot in the general election with talent shows, although the former are even charge (ref. Also the article "Why are televoting shows all the rage and what we can learn from it" in Zeitgeist print edition 1 -2006).

And even if they then cede unscheduled, our slippery representatives of the people, hardly a cock crows after them. The rats are leaving the sinking ship, I hear quite a few sneer. Only Roland Koch, now Horst Köhler. Who's next? Standing quite soon new elections, as speculated?

Poor Germany.

Well, now is the World Cup. Who will prevail because, already is clear: bread and circuses.

    "Maladjustment, courage to be different - and above all authenticity."

    I beg your pardon? What is this nonsense? Ridiculous. How do they justify their statement?

    "Well, now is the World Cup. Who will prevail because, already is clear:. Bread and Circuses "

    Oh, and the "Song Contest" is a true artist competition in which it happens only honest and has nothing to do with "bread and circuses"?
    So much naivete even at her age. Let yourself be consign, or take other medications. The current make them just blind and ridiculous.

    @ Lucifer

    Please my text once read, understand and then consider whether there is a Losbrüllen worth. The mentioned attributes relate to Lena's unconventional, non-conforming appearance and the associated success and not on the "Euro Vision Song Contest". The latter differs from the other shallow entertainment fare one iota.

    And my final sentence with the Football World Cup: Ever heard of sarcasm?

    A word about the form: can criticize anyone, but seriously it is only from someone who is also her. Unfortunately, my dear Lucifer, you have your scribblings neither signed with real names, nor can I find on your website that you operate a large anonymous blog hosters, an imprint. Fairly cowardly for anyone who distributes such, especially below the belt.
