My Eurovision 2021 faves May 12, 2021
I think my personal favourites in this year's #Eurovision right now are (in order):

1. Eden Alene - Set Me Free (Israel)
Love the song, especially the high note part, and I think she'd be the first black winner? #BlackLivesMatter - although I guess we'll see how this latest Israel-Palestine controversy affects her chances

2. Måneskin - ZITTI E BUONI (Italy)
I don't understand much of what they're saying even though I'm studying Italian right now, but the raw emotion and uniqueness doesn't need to be translated and they give us exactly what we want out of a rock song

3. Blind Channel - Dark Side (Finland)
I was hesitant going in to listen... but I was sold with the explosive start! The lyrics aren't my fave but it's giving me total nostalgia with its Linkin Park vibes (almost wrote LinkedIn) and it's another standout amongst the heaps of pop

4. Destiny - Je Me Casse (Malta)
Upbeat, fun, fierce. We love to see a strong, independent, curvy woman full of attitude. She lists Lizzo as one of her biggest musical idols and I totally get that from her!

5. Albina - Tick-Tock (Croatia)
It might not be the strongest musically but it's really catchy and I can't get it out of my head! I'm a fan of the beat and I like the transition and contrast between the chorus and the verses

Honourable mentions:

Natalia Gordienko - Sugar (Moldova)
I've seen this gif a few times on here but it didn't hit me until I saw the music video that it was from Eurovision! The song is pretty standard but the video is iconic and I'm looking forward to seeing what they bring at the live performance!

Samanta Tina - The Moon is Rising (Latvia)
As someone on YouTube wrote: "this makes me feel like a strong Baltic woman"

Are any of you following along? Who are you rooting for?

Tengaged Moderation #ThrowbackThursday Apr 29, 2021
With all the 🌟 positive changes 🌟 the new mods are bringing to Tengaged, I was randomly reminiscing about how horrible past mods were.

In the past, there was a separate account for the mods to use called @Tengaged_Moderation and they were expected to remain neutral and not get involved in drama when using it… but that was far from the case. They operated like a dictatorship, with obvious biases in their decision making, and constantly abused their powers left, right, and center. Everyone knew the mods were bad, but some were afraid to speak up out of fear of retribution.

Now I'm sure nobody remembers this, but there was a moment when I started a battle against their corrupt ways:
It crossed the line for me when they started stalking and stealing designs from shops of people that they didn't like, mine included. So I called Tengaged_Moderation out on it and they banned me, as they usually did to anyone who spoke out against them, claiming my accusations were harassing them.

Fast forward 10 years later and they’ve been slayed:
Not sure exactly when it happened, I wasn't around at the time, but I’m so glad justice was served and that we have a new, better moderation team.

I’m sure it’s not easy for our new mods, since as we all know there are plenty of toxic people around here to deal with. So good riddance to Tengaged_Moderation and thank you brandonpinzu CheapCheep koolness234 for volunteering your time and sanity to help make the site a better place 😊

The Challenge: where to start? Apr 21, 2021
I'm seeing a ton of The Challenge themed designs popping up lately so I'm thinking of giving it a watch for the first time to see if I like it!
But it appears there are over 35 seasons... 🤯 Any recommendations for a season to start with?

1T$ design posted for the public! Mar 25, 2021
You wanted cheap designs? Well, some are currently on the way! 😉
~ Three 1T$ items coming right up! ~
They will be manufactured in 0 to 8 hours (my workers are doing their best to get it out as soon as possible, but there's no way to know when they'll be done).
Good luck to all!

It's been a while since we've seen a 1T$ posted for all without it being a pre-arranged gift, no? Thanks again to Jujubee for gifting me and unlocking this special deal for Tengaged ❤
