20 May 2013. Where Do They Get Their “Attitude?”

00 Glory to God! I'm a Cossack 01. 20.05.13


One wonders… is Cossack attitude inborn or is it taught? I, for one, vote for it being part of one’s being… that is, you “get it through the tittie”. That’s not only true of Cossacks, it’s true of all the Orthosphere peoples… be they Greeks, Armenians, Copts, Ethiopians, Russians, Serbs, or Hillbilly Ossetians (don’t mess with ’em, y’ hear; they DO know how to take care of themselves, they proved that in the recent war). We have not only a religion, we have a culture that comes wrapped indissolubly around it. That’s why it’s so difficult for newbies to “get it right”… it doesn’t come out of a book, “it comes through the tittie”. A whole new world has to be born in a convert’s soul to receive the Truth… which means that they have to walk away from the whole lot that they once believed in. They’re not doing that… ergo, they’re not truly converting. Sad, ain’t it? However, for how much longer can we afford to tolerate posturing semi-converted Anglicans amongst us (I know real Anglicans… they don’t have the hangups that the konvertsy have, trust me on that one)?

You can have the books or you can have the iaias and babas… that’s what on offer… I think that you know where I stand…


20 May 2013. It’s STILL the Easter Season!

00 Cossack Christ is Risen. 20.05.13


The Easter season stretches on to Pentecost, which falls on 23 June this year. That means that we have another month left in the festal time… hey, if we keep the Easter Lent for all forty days, then, it stands to reason that we should keep all fifty days of the Easter feast. God did NOT intend us to walk about with long faces and be insufferable misery-guts to all about us. Christ is risen! That’s what our religion is all about… not rules… not crusades… not marches… not politics… but Christ is Risen! It was good enough for baba and dede, it’s good enough for me…

Христосъ воскресе!

Воистинну воскресе!



20 May 2013. RIA-Novosti Video. The Moscow Planetarium’s 9,000 Stars

00 155 Anniversay Birth of Tsiolkovsky


Here’s a two-and-a-half minute vid in English on the Moscow Planetarium. It has more to offer than just galaxies projected on the dome ceiling. It also has ancient star maps and a collection of rare meteorites. However, its main attraction is the night sky of the remote past and even the future.

01d Cossack 22.01.11


Here’s a three-minute vid on English on a contemporary Russian Cossack school. It’s the real deal… even if Rod Dreher doesn’t like Cossacks. I say, if I had to choose to have the Cossacks or Rod Dreher at my back, I’d choose the Cossacks. The Cossacks are loyal to a fault… Dreher changes his opinion more often than he changes his gotchies. One of these things is NOT like the other!
