PolyglotDome: Music from Everywhere


Summon for hire
Well ya know what folks? The polls have already been open for an extra day and it's dead even; I for one am willing to call it a tie. A joint Mongolian-German championship for The Hu's Yuve Yuve Yu and Nena's 99 Luftballons, both well deserved.

Glückwunsch & Баяр хүргэе!

And I just want to thank all the participants again for the absolutely fire nominations for this first Thunderdome I've MC'd. Really awesome stuff, and I'm so glad to have been exposed to it all. See y'all next 'dome!
