Knowing Your Audience

The Gazette signed up for Google Analytics recently, and guess what most of its incoming visitors seem to have googled for. Yes. Well, it's that time of year.

In the same spirit, then, the news from Jutarnji list that Severina has thrown elements of 'linđo, and vrličko and bunjevačko kolo' into the mix for her choreography on stage in Athens, which will also require slightly flatter štikle than the infamous Dora pair. (Anyone who hasn't seen their particular regional musical marker referenced in Štikla by the time this is over will have the right to feel affronted.)

Her latest comments on the song suggest that Severina, at least, is very much enjoying all this:

'I went to Dora with a song I liked and which was done according to my taste. I'm going to Eurovision with that song as well, and I hope it'll also be to Europe's taste. My song is distinct from the others, and the fact that I'll be bringing šijavica to the capital of European culture and civilisation strikes me as the peak of conceptual art!'

Far more importantly, though, Denis Latin, the editor and presenter of the Latinica talk show, is to leave HTV at some point in the next six months, ending the show's 13-year run. No wonder that he's dissatisfied with the broadcaster, after the reception of his edition on 'Tudjman's Heritage' last December (which coincided with the fifth anniversary of the ex-president's death): HTV responded by placing his show under special supervision.

But you haven't come here to read about that, have you? There are 130,000 results on Google for 'moja štikla'. This surely doesn't still deserve to be the top one...?
