Lordi, Lordi....

An alert reader from southern Indiana forwarded me this link: Finland Squirms as Its Latest Export Steps into the Spotlight
HELSINKI, Finland — They have eight-foot retractable latex Satan wings, sing hits like "Chainsaw Buffet" and blow up slabs of smoking meat on stage. So members of the band Lordi expected a reaction when they beat a crooner of love ballads to represent Finland at the Eurovision song contest in Athens, the competition that was the springboard for Abba and Celine Dion. But the heavy-metal monster band did not imagine a national identity crisis.

But the citizens must unite behind their champions! Mustn't they?

(I don't remember if you have to register to read this or not. I don't think so.)

Now I really want to see Eurovision.

Yay! Finally Finland has sent something closer to what their music scene is famous for. I haven't heard this song yet, though hellmutt's told me about it, but I hope it's not too Death Metally. If it's just pretty heavy, but not stupid, I reckon they could pick up some points.

Also, what are "Satan wings" when they're at home? Satan is, if anything, supposed to be a snake. I dunno, I tell thee.

Satan can be a wingéd serpent, maybe. I'll have to do some research. What does Wikipedia have about Satan?

According to the article, Lordi has a song called "The Devil is a Loser." Now that sounds like they have some common ground with the bishop, no?
