28 May 2015. A Word to the Wise from the Schnozz

00 jimmy durante. 28.05.15


Da Schnozz needs no introduction from me… to my Russian friends… to Americans, Jimmy Durante is as beloved as Yu V Nikulin is to Russians, of a sightly older generation (he was active from the 20s to the 60s). He was a good example of a real non-oligarch non-political American… his like comes but rarely…

“I’ve got a million of ’em”… “ha-cha-cha-cha!”

Eternal memory, Jimmy… you brought light into millions of lives… you did have “a million of ’em”…

18 May 2015. This is For a Certain Father of Two Boys of My Acquaintance…

00 thank you grandpa for the victory. russia. 18.05.15

“Thank you, Gran’pa, for the Victory!”


Do you hear what I hear? SOMEBODY is out in the garage doing something STRANGE. DO YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT HE’S UP TO? Keep his dinner warm… he may be late, dear… but at least you KNOW where he is…

BTW, the sign ТОРТЫ means “Cakes”… something, the little one may be thinking of…


18 May 2015. Have a Laugh… Americans Eat Some of Our More “Out There” Foods… To See Yanks Eat Kholodets… It’s a GAS

00 Unknown Artist. Fruit Kvas. 1959

1959 Sov-era ad for Fruit Kvass… ask any Russian, we’ll tell you that it’s not only good for what ails ya, it’s just contentment in a glass…



Of course, Russians eat ANYTHING pickled… Doktorskaya Bologna, y’ gotta have a “Russian stomach”… but to see the reaction to kholodets! Actually, most Yanks have trouble with vobla (salt-cured fish)! That, and the smoked golden fish get the most “yucks” from Americans. Most of all, WHERE WAS KVASS!?! Most Russians LOVE kvass with a Number One raging passion and can’t get enough of it. Most Yanks think that warm cat piss is superior in taste and pass it by.
