Here, to assist the uninitiated, we present a bluffers’ alphabetical guide to the hairiest and scariest of musical genres. Avant Garde Metal: Confused metal that wants to be John Cage… Also called speed metal. Names to drop: Metallica, Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, Overkill. Still bemused? All seems a bit comical? Watch out – as Lordi put it in their Eurovision-winning song: “On the day of rockoning [sic], it’s who dares, wins – you will see the jokers soon’ll be the new kings. ” You have been warned….

After all, we too were plucked out of a very civilized place and thrust down into the midst of a wild new land, where the natives have strange customs, like watching Eurovision, and wild beasts, like the guy who sings off-key with the tinny soundtrack on Ben-Yehuda, roam the land. Yes, it’s easy to understand why Paul, a British astronomer, finds it hard to adjust when he’s suddenly pulled from the warm bosom of his annoying girlfriend and homeland in the UK to a new life as part of a wacky astronomy research team in Xtra HOT’s fun new Supernova, burning brightly Sunday nights at 00:30. There’s no doubting Paul’s zeal for the stars.

And just count how many Serbs live in Austria, Germany, Sweden… And just count how many Serbs live in Austria, Germany, Sweden. I expect 12 points from these countries, as well as from Montenegro!

We know we have no chance at most world events, so to win Eurovision was a big thing,” Raikkonen said. “I hope in my heart that something similar happens here to me. It will be just as unexpected. “The ice sculpture was the chosen prop for F1’s annual PR stunt with diamond manufacturer Steinmetz. We have had diamonds in the noses of Jaguars and precious stones in the helmets of Raikkonen and Juan Pablo Montoya.

Gilby and Daniella Clarke tell Hadley Freeman about their passion for fashion Friday May 26, 2006.
