german post punk

please take a moment to imagine the Federation version of Eurovision as @swordfern and I have envisioned it, in a post-DS9 peaceful future:
-Bajor does something very soothing with hand percussion and like…. background eurythmy dancing but the lyrics are utterly heart-wrenching.
-Betazed is always a fan favorite- they really get into the pop ballads and impressive choreography, and of course aim to inspire ~feelings~
-Romulans do the super intimidating acts like that one song about Moscow Germany did one year.
-Klingons just do fucking opera every time, with intense choreography, generally involving weaponry.
-Andorians do… whatever the andorian version of death metal is. imagine andorian headbanging. with those antennae. imagine.
-the new Cardassian Republic, when it finally gains admittance, is intensely earnest and a bit disco. No one really knows how to react to this.
-Vulcan sends one person with a Vulcan lute and they play an extremely logical arrangement extremely well, with no dancers or any illogical frippery… and they repeat this each year. No one ever votes for Vulcan.

Daft Punk Phone Interview: Translated

(I promised one of my German translations for my next post, and I deliver! This is an HAA-era interview, and one of the many clippings available through @ifcwdjd‘s archive; for that reason, I can’t source which publication exactly this comes from, and defer to the tumblr mention instead. This is an interview with only Guy-Manuel, and for that alone it was worth some attention; the entire interview has been patched into the above image, but if you’re on mobile, there’s still a text version available!)
