5 November 2017. “Hedgehog in the Fog”: The Best Multifilm Ever Made

******

________________________

Many animators consider Ёжик в тумане (Hedgehog in the Fog) one of the best-made multifilms ever. The plot is simple… a little hedgehog is on his way to visit his friend the bear cub. The two would meet every night to drink tea from the cub’s samovar. As they drank their tea, the hedgehog and the bear would chat and count the stars together. The 10-minute film is about Hedgehog’s misadventures on one of his trips to visit the Bear Cub. This is one of the most-loved Sov-era multifilms, and people still view it today.

As for the quote from the film, I’ll simply say that the only kind of friendship that I extend is the real kind. I don’t deal in alliances or temporary setups. If I extend friendship to you, trust me, you can expect me to treat your confidences as sacred. Have people betrayed me, with people that I thought friends being otherwise? Certainly… that’s why I only offer real friendship. I don’t offer it lightly. Most people aren’t worth it. The most-untrustworthy lot are clergy… I’ve never met so many phonies and poseurs in my life as I have amongst this cohort. That’s why I find honest clergy a real find. To say that such are rare finds is an understatement…

24 June 2016. Leopold the Cat on the Unity of Holy Rus

______________________________

Leopold the Cat is one of the most beloved Sov-era multifilm characters. He’s as much a part of Russian visual culture as Taz and Bugs Bunny are in the USA. The original text used the word дпужно (druzhno), which has strong overtones of “friendship”, as “together” and “friendship” in Russian have common building-blocks. That is, дпужно implies much more than “togetherness” to a Russian, it brings up images of fraternity and brotherhood, due to its similarity to the word for “friendship”. So, it’s not “let’s live together”… it’s closer to “let’s live as one”, so that’s the rendering I chose to bring the meaning home to an English-speaker.

Longer trailer for the film

______________________________

The RF Ministry of Culture helped to underwrite this beautiful production. Victoria Nuland, John McCain, American “conservatives” in general, and Establishment Dems all throw stones at Russia. It’s clear that the Anglos have their heads up their collective ass again. You may follow the selfless ethos of Holy Rus or you may follow the narcissistic greed of Me First Anglo America… it’s up to you, I can’t choose for you… choose wisely…

Watch this in full-screen and HD 1080! WOW! It’s the trailer for a 75-minute multifilm… GOOD STUFF!

Those evil gargoyles at the RF Ministry of Culture sponsored this film… I guess that it’s no damned good because it lacks a politically-correct theme and it doesn’t bow down and kiss America’s ass. This is what Russia does… on the other hand, Anglo America does otherwise… Ted Cruz supports baby-killing in Novorossiya… John McCain supports the cause of godless Uniates and schismos… you can FEEL the difference, can’t you? Russia stands for LIFE… the USA (especially, “Pro-Life” Republicans) stands for DEATH and DESTRUCTION. If you support the so-called “Pro-Life” movement, you oppose the Russian government that sponsors such wonderful fare… do you support this or do you support warmongering? That IS the choice, for the “Pro-Life” movement is a chimera, a false mask to cover over the evil of the narcissistic Me First Crapitalism of the Republicans. I vote for Holy Rus… by their fruit ye shall know them… this multifilm is very sweet fruit, indeed…

Them be the choices… choose well…

THIS is our Orthodox Motherland’s offering to the world… it humbles me that I’m part of the naroda
