8 November 2014. Get Your Mind (and Soul) Right! The Winter Lent is Upon Us… Here’s are Some Hymns to the Most Holy Virgin and a Cherubic Hymn… Christmas Lent is on the Way

00.1bb A Point of Unity. Catholics woman praying. Basilica of the Virgin Aparecida. BRAZIL

******

My Soul Doth Magnify the Lord (the Magnificat). It sounds like New Roman chant sung in Staroslav. Sung at St Tikhon parish in Yaroslavl RUSSIAN FEDERATION

******

Ancient Old Russian Stolpvoy/Zanamenny chant harmonised by Irina Denisova. Херувимская песнь (Cherubic Hymn (Hymn of the Great Entrance) from the Liturgy). Sung at the St Elisabeth Convent in Minsk BELARUS. This is the most ancient Russian Orthodox chant form in existence.

******

Rejoice, O Ever-Virgin Bride! Sung at the Valaam Monastery in Republic of Karelia RUSSIAN FEDERATION

******

It’s My Choice! A Russian Orthodox multifilm (animation) sponsored by the Russian Federation Ministry of Culture… even if you don’t know Russian, watch it for the visuals. The best part is at 11:30… the peasant refuses to carry out the death penalty… now, that’s REAL Russian Orthodox! One note… if you voted Republican, you voted AGAINST the Russian government that sponsors such wholesome presentations. Crank world, ain’t it? Holy Rus or Greedy Mammon America… which one do YOU want?

_______________________________

The winter lent is almost upon us. Just as Easter has 40 days of abstinence preceding it… so does Christmas. Orthodoxy has four lents… the Great Lent, before Easter, the Christmas Lent, before Christmas, the Peter and Paul Lent, before the feastday of Ss Peter and Paul, and the Assumption Lent, in August before the feastday of the Assumption of the Virgin. Get in the mood, kids… there’s a season for celebration and a season for fasting… and a season of fasting is upon us. Keep it focused and keep it straight…

Here’s one of my fave Sov multifilmsThe Wolf and the Seven Little Goats. Good things from the Evil Empire! You don’t need to know Russian to love this one…

______________________________

Have a most lovely holiday season… no matter which one you celebrate. Ura! It’s time for ALL of us to join hands… let’s have a world where we can all respect one another and live together in peace, despite obvious differences. Fie on all those who want to “convert” their neighbour… that’s where most mischief in society comes in. Let’s treat others as we’d like others to treat us… we can do it…

19 February 2013. Sergei Yolkin’s World. I Christen Thee Chebarkul!

00 Sergei Yolkin. I Christen Thee Chebarkul! 2013

I Christen Thee Chebarkul!

Of course, a literal translation was impossible here. A “чемодан” is a suitcase and a “чебурек” is a traditional Tatar food (click here for a description). Therefore, I chose “carry-on” and “chipolata” as substitutes (they begin with “C” and they’re of the same sorts as the Russian words (one is luggage and the other’s food). That is, the spirit of Yolkin is catered to; I’ve put my pinch of incense on the altar, which means that this is a righteous translation.

The crocodile is the famous character Gena the Crocodile from the Cheburashka series of multifilms, and the meteorite fragment is in the shape of the much-loved Cheburashka. Any Russian would see this in a flash! It’s like putting up Popeye or Taz… it’s that much a part of Russian “visual culture”. Below is a vid of Gena singing his “birthday song” (his most famous number) in a full-length Cheburashka multifilm (it’s at the beginning).
