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…

24 August 2015. A Changing Hut with an “Interesting” Machine Translation

______________________________

Let’s start with the inscriptions on the hut before we get to the machine translation howler…

In the top image, on the right-hand side, we see:

  • Лада (Slavic Rodnovery Goddess of Spring season and Love)
  • Ладить (get along)
  • Ладан (incense)
  • Ладья (Rook)
  • Сладость (sweetness)
  • Ладонь (palm of the hand)
  • Услада (delight)
  • Владеть (to rule)
  • Владимир (Vladimir, a name, “Ruler of the World”… also, “Peaceful Ruler”)

The middle image is an expanded view of the centre:

  • Русь просыпается: (Rus awakens)
  • Радуга (rainbow)
  • Ура (hooray)
  • Разум (mind)
  • Гора (mountain)
  • Урал (Ural Mountains)
  • Жара (heat)
  • Рассвет (dawn)
  • Радость (joy)

The last image is an expanded view of the left-hand side of the hut:

  • Род (Slavic Rodnovery Ancestor God)
  • родители (parents)
  • Родина (Motherland)
  • Народ (People, Tribe, Nation)
  • Родник (Spring (water, aquifer)
  • Огород (vegetable garden)
  • Город (city)
  • Смородина (Currant)

The original caption for this was:

В деревне, на общественном пляже умелец разрисовал кабинку для переодевания.

Literally, that comes out to:

In a village, on a public beach, a craftsman painted this on a changing hut.

That’s jangly and moves in fits and starts, I modified it to:

A craftsman painted this on a changing hut on a public beach in a village.

After I was done, for utter shits n’ giggles, I ran a “machine translation”… this came up:

In the village, on a public beach, artificer painted by the booth for the cross-dressing.

Gee… is that the “Stonewall Inn Memorial Beach” or what? That’s why you can’t use machine translation for serious work unless you have a handle on the language. “Booth for the cross-dressing”… y’know, that’s jangly enough to pass as “Russlish”… all you Russian-Americans know what I’m talking about.

Language… if you don’t know what you’re doing… ooh-la-la… but ya gotta admit, “Booth for the cross-dressing”… that’s a classic blooper.

OFFICIAL Greetings of DNR Chairman of the Government A V Zakharcheno to Orthodox Christians on the Feast of the Transfiguration

05-transfiguration-in-russia

______________________________

OFFICIAL

I greet all Orthodox Christians in the DNR on one of the brightest and most significant holydays… the Transfiguration of Our Lord! Today, 19 August, both the Orthodox Church and all believers celebrate this great miracle, of Jesus Christ praying on Mount Tabor, and of His transformation before his disciples. The Church teaches us that every Christian should strive for the same transformation of personality, to find true purity and spiritual enlightenment. After all, if we transform ourselves spiritually, we change for the better; for the material world, it brings good and justice, it brings peace and light. On this significant day for Orthodox Christians, in all sincerity, I wish all believers joy, pure thoughts, good health, good deeds, and great blessings upon you. May you have good fortune and God’s help in all good deeds!
