I'll give you all that I can offer, the rest is all up to you

What does this make this, my sixth post today? Oh well--I couldn't help it when I noticed an ESC Today article about Iceland's national finals for Eurovision--apparently they're starting September 29 (which is really early). At the very least, those are something worth getting excited about; Iceland has sent a lot of great entries lately and Jónsi's "Segðu mér," which made it to the overall national final but didn't win, was great (though admittedly I wasn't paying close attention to most countries beyond Sweden--I'll get there eventually). The real reason I had to post, though? Selma news! Though, in the vein of the Jessica Andersson "news" below, it's probably not anything really worth getting excited about, but I so wish she'd make a commercial music comeback (especially if it was in the vein of "If I Had Your Love"): she's going to a jury member for the national finals.

Though I wasn't a huge fan of Iceland's 2007 entry (I haven't listened to it much, but I remember thinking it was pleasant when it was performed), they're overdue for some success, so I hope everything goes well for them this year.

Speaking of Iceland and Eurovision, Birgitta has a solo song on the Astrópía soundtrack which I remember thinking wasn't bad, but it's since been taken off MySpace; it was in Icelandic, though.

Oh I got excited, I thought you were about to say Selma was running to represent again. "If I had your love" is, to this day, F.I.E.R.C.E.

I know...I hope she stops the contestants and walks up on stage--"This is how it's done"--and reveals her own entry for the contest.

If it had actually been news that Selma was representing Iceland again, my post probably would've been something more like "OMG, Selma!!!! *passes out*".

Six posts in one day? What is this, CNN.com?

Yup, J'ason--Poster Girl: the site doing the best job ripping articles from other sites and bringing them over here to bombard you with countless European singers people really didn't want to know about in the first place.

Oh no, wait, if this was CNN.com, there'd only be a thin facade of "international" stuff covering up a bunch of stories about the U.S. and waterskiing squirrels.
