Did you perhaps reply to the wrong thread? Or was there a spam post before yours that got deleted?

You've been keeping up with a lot!
There's even more returning acts that I realized. I'd be curious to see what Konstrakta's performance is like for her new song once that selection competition happens.

I think I'm still behind on listening to the entries that have been released so far, but I did listen to Latvia and Finland's a few days ago.
Latvia seems heartfelt and I liked the theme, but I'm not sure how well it will stand out.
Finland... I'm having mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I like for there to be weird entries, because the weird songs are something in Eurovision that you don't really get anywhere else. That said, while "No Rules" made me laugh, it also made me a little uncomfortable. It kind of reminded me of some of the ridiculous and terrible acts you would see on America's Got Talent, back when I used to watch that show, that would get all four buzzers within a minute (or less) of beginning their performance.

That would be fun to recognize so many things from your youth in the movie! I know I've seen in a few movies over the years different objects that we have owned ourselves, but never that much in one movie.

I can imagine hearing the music from another movie changing how you felt about that scene in Lady Chatterly's Lover, even if it was unintentional. Haha. I must admit I've heard rumbling from other movies once or twice in the multiplex as well, but never anything that distinctive.

That's funny, besley. Most people I have discussed Saltburn with me didn't like the director's previous film (Promising Young Woman), but I did, so I don't know what to think, whether I'm interested in it or not. I don't have Prime Video at the moment, so for now I'm waiting to see if a DVD or Blu-ray release happens so that I can get it from the library.

I have been meaning to see All of Us Strangers, but it's not playing in any theatre near me at the moment, so it would require a trip to the city. Which is fine, my dad and I have done that a few times before, but it requires some planning. One of my friends who saw it saw it in a multiplex that did not have very good soundproofing and he said during a very quiet moment he could hear a song from Wonka in the next room, which wasn't great and caused him to laugh even though it was inappropriate. So I hope if I see it in the theatre that I will have better luck. I know it's kind of sad, but I've heard good things. I like sad sometimes.

Unless it's behind one of those lower cupboard doors, I don't think it's in the kitchen. That one door with a rectangular window would be an oven, I assume.

I knew The Roop were competing in the Lithuanian selection competition again, but I don't think I realized Keiino were for Norway. I just listened to the song, and I agree it's not as good as previous submissions. It sounds a bit like something you'd hear while playing Dance Dance Revolution. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I don't think it stands out as much as some of their other songs. Gothminister's song is kind of catchy, even if it's not a style of music I usually listen to.

I just listened to Albania and Czech Republic. The Albanian singer's headpiece reminds me a bit of the Statue of Liberty. The song grew on me as it went along, though the national final performance has no subtitles so I'd have to look up what the lyrics mean. I like the feel of the Czech song, though I was surprised by the costumes of the national final performance after seeing the music video first. Not the look I was expecting, feels like a bit of a mismatch to me. I don't think the national final had the best audio quality either.

Ah, maybe that's where I've seen his name before. Still need to watch It's a Sin! 
I hadn't realized there were this many songs out already, I thought there had only been artist announcements.

I have seen a couple of the artist announcements. I'm not familiar with Olly Alexander but I think I have seen his name somewhere before.

I hope you enjoy your trip, Liberty! Both my parents have been to a few places in Germany, but I don't think they've seen Hamburg. I've seen some pictures and it looks nice.

I have seen a bit on Tumblr from one of the new ones, but I didn't realize there were multiple specials. I feel so out of the loop, but I'm intrigued by the bits and pieces I've seen so hopefully I'll get a chance to check them out eventually. I think it's cool David Tennant is back. He's always enjoyable to watch.

Glad you hear you have been enjoying theatre in your area, Susi, and nice to see you popping by after such a long time.

Nice. My dad is often pointing out famous actors' voices doing voiceovers for ads on TV here. I usually don't recognize the voices, but I think Andrew's voice is pretty distinctive.

I just saw this press release about an adaptation of a Doyle story that Mark is involved in, as well as a Lucy Worsley documentary that is about Doyle called Killing Sherlock. They usually air her docs on PBS but I don't know if Lot 249 will be aired here though I am curious about it, too

I hadn't thought about that episode in a long time, but I get what you mean. Finding our what sort of psychological manipulation he was capable of would have been an interesting story.

I wasn't aware of either of these. Looks like All of Us Strangers will be released in Canada in December, so I will keep an eye out for that. I will look out for Vanya as well. I saw my first Chekov play, The Seagull, earlier this year and I didn't fully get it, but this still could be interesting.

That's nice that your cinema has free drinks for seniors. Ours just has a ticket discount. I got some free passes for Christmas last year, so that's actually what I've been doing for movies lately, too.
I think it did a good job of showing that Oppenheimer was intelligent and discovered something that changed the world but definitely didn't gloss over the negative aspects of that. There's also a significant part of the plot that is related to politics that I wasn't aware of which I thought was really interesting.

Yes, that's also possible, and hopefully that's all it was.
