1 May 2015. Latest Bonya and Kuzmich Parody… SMILE!

00 Bonya and Kuzmich. 13.08.14

This one has a slow start (it really doesn’t get going until a minute is past)… and the song goes in fits and jerks… it’s a send-up of all the old hoary Russian rural stereotypes…

This isn’t “Folk Music” per se… it’s an “urban” recasting of folk themes, from the late tsarist and Soviet periods. Nevertheless, all Russian people love this kind of thing. Yes, the state supports such ensembles, for that is one of the legitimate tasks of the state, to support and foster healthy cultural developments… that’s why godly Russia is ahead of godless Republican America… the Republicans slash everything in their disordered mad lust for more wealth. That’s why all “conservatism” is evil and without redemption. Compare this to Kim Kardashian and Duck Dynasty… there’s no comparison, is there? This is the state in action… it’s why the Church BLESSES the state… it CONDEMNS anarchy… let’s not be coy, Libertarianism is nothing but “moneyed anarchy”… think on that.

Today, Russian singer Yu D Chicherina told our correspondent that she doesn’t care that she browned off Ukrainian extremists because of her support for Novorossiya. She said, “You have to take the criticism of these Ukrainian extremists ‘with a grain of salt’; they don’t like that I perform in [Novorossiya]. I’m not sorry that I lost this part of my audience”. Yuliya Dmitrievna is in the DNR to take part in two rock festivals. She went on to say, “I’ve said that I’m not against the Ukraine, but that doesn’t stop me from bringing love to the people of [Novorossiya]. I fell in love with this land… on 9 May, I’m going to give concerts in the DNR”. Today, Chicherina is performing at a rock festival put on by Novorossiya Rocks Radio, along with Vadim Samoilov, the frontman of Agata Kristi, and the rock group 7B, along with DNR rockers. Tomorrow, the Russian rockers will perform at the DNRok Festival, in the central square of Donetsk, to mark the International Day of Youth Solidarity.
