26 January 2015. Some of My Favourite Things… Singer Demis Roussos Dead at 68



Le Grec


My Friend the Wind


Goodbye, My Love, Goodbye… my personal fave


04f Demis Roussos


My Reason 


Quand je t’aime… my fave of his French recordings




Someday, Somewhere


Comme le vent d’hier


04d Demis Roussos


Mourir auprès de mon amour


Morir al lado de mi amor


Happy To Be On An Island In The Sun


Read thisthis, and this. One of my fave singers, Demis Roussos died at 68. He was Greek, but based himself in France, so, he wasn’t well-known in the USA, but he sang in several languages, including English. He was one of the best of the 60s generation of pop singers… we’ll all miss him. Opa! for a life well-spent… light a candle for Demis and ask your priest to say Pannikhida for him (his Christian name was Artemios)… yes, like most Greeks, he was Orthodox.

May God grant the Servant of God Artemios rest, in a place of verdure and refreshment, where sorrow and sighing have fled away…

Αἰωνία ἡ μνήμη! Вечная память!

On 2 November, Odessa residents gathered near the Dom Profsoyuzov at Kulikovo Field to commemorate the six-month anniversary of the deliberate arson that took place there earlier this year.

On 2 May, Odessa and Kharkov football ultras, pro-Euromaidan extremists, and neofascist nationalists attacked pro-federalisation supporters. Mourners launched black balloons launched at the memorial ceremony near the Dom Profsoyuzov.

Pro-Kiev junta radicals and Right Sector extremists blockaded anti-government protesters inside the Dom Profsoyuzov and set the building on fire using Molotov cocktails. When people attempted to escape the conflagration, the encircling crowd used force to force them back into the burning building.

The resulting conflagration killed at least 48 people and injured over 200 more.

Local officials accused the Kiev junta of covering up the affair; they state that the actual death toll is at least 116.

Every time that you pass a “Ukrainian Catholic” or “Ukrainian Orthodox” church, you pass a conventicle whose hierarchy supports murder in the Ukraine. “A knife for the Moskali!” They do NOT condemn such evil… I need say no more. The people who worship in such places aren’t all enablers of enormities… but all too many are, including most of the priests (“The Ukraine is for Ukrainians only”, as one said). Russian Orthodox people and their church support and care for the innocent victims… Uniate and Ukrainian Orthodox institutions back the gore-spattered murderers and call for MORE bloodshed.

Reflect well that the Republican Party positively drools in delight over these murders and praises the unrepentant murderers (it also denigrates and brutalises the victims… it gives you the full measure of the malevolent godlessness in Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz… only the “religious” can plumb the uttermost depths of greedster theomachy). If you needed proof that the GOP is irredeemably evil… well, this IS that. No decent person can have anything to do at all with such wicked groups. Have a care…



The present Ukrainian state is a demonic artifice, and that’s that…

19 December 2014. It’s Been FIVE YEARS Since Vladyki Job’s Passing…

00 Archbishop Job Osacky of Chicago. OCA. 26.06.13


It’s been five years since the passing of Vladyki Job Osacky on 18 December 2014. Many called him, “The last honest bishop in the OCA”… there’s MUCH truth to that, sadly enough. I believe that he died of a broken heart… after seeing the shambles that Fathausen made of the Church. The OCA hasn’t yet recovered from Fatso… shall it? Only time will tell us…

Light a candle for Vladyki Job this Sunday… ask your priest to mention his name during the Proskomidi… have Pannikhida served for him. We’re Christians… that’s what we do…

Вечная ему память!
