19 March 2017. Lest We Forget… They All Had Faces… They All Had Names… They Were All the CIA’s Victims

Here are the faces of the CIA’s victims… note well that the Anglos sleep well after they murder… it tells you much about them…

____________________________________

They all had faces… they all had names… and the Anglos don’t care. They kill without abandon… they maim without pity… they don’t care so long as they can fill their pockets with ill-gotten loot. The Aleksandrov Ensemble embodied a cultured and grounded Russia… the CIA embodies the lawless and grasping USA. You can choose one or the other. One culture brings out the best, the other brings out the most repulsive… but they do have such NICE and shiny toilets and sinks!

By the way, the American people are NOT the USA… the latter is a radical state brought about in the late 18th century, the first of the Radical Anti-Christian States. The American people, like all other peoples, are an organic and natural growth, not related to the so-called “American Revolution”… they’re better than that. Maybe, someday, their state will reflect their virtues…

10 September 2016. Some of My Favourite Things… P G Lisitian Sings “Ya Vas Lyublyu” from “Pikovaya Dama”

*******

An aria from La Traviata… Joe Green in Russian!

******

Here’s a patriotic song in a more popular vein… Moya rodina (My Motherland)

___________________________________________

P G Lisitian (Peoples Artist of the USSR) came from a humble working-class family… in the money-grubbing West, he would’ve got nowhere. In the USSR, he found an outlet for his talent. That’s something that the righties never talk about… how the Sovs sincerely sought out talent of all sorts (artistic, scientific, and athletic) amongst all classes and how they gave people a chance to develop their skills. Lisitian was a leading soloist at the Bolshoi (officially, the State Academic Bolshoi Theatre of Russia (GABT Rossii)) from 1940 to 1966; he taught at conservatoire for many years afterward (he died in 2004, in his 93rd year). Ya vas lyublyu from Tchaikovsky’s Pikovaya Dama (The Queen of Spades) has to the be the most famous aria in Russian opera… need I mention that Pavel Gerasimovich was a mentor of D A Khvorostovsky? Many believe his interpretation to be the best yet… I agree.

D A Khvorostovsky has to be one of the sexiest men alive today. Here, he sings one of the old standards (with English subs) with A Yu Netrebko at an outdoor concert in the Kremlin.

Lyrics:

I’ll wait for you; outside the window, in rain and in snow.

You looked at me

You searched for me everywhere.

I used to run, keeping you always in view.

Now, you’re not there.

For some reason, you’re not there.

I just want you to gaze at me.

Chorus: 

Outside the window, in rain and in snow,

it was time to sleep, but I couldn’t sleep.

Always the same yard, always the same laugh,

and I miss you a little bit.

I’m going out,

beyond my familiar haunts.

With Natasha at the cinema, I don’t hurry; I’m not with you.

But the windows of your quiet home

send your greetings

like the old guys still clicking their dominoes.

(Chorus) 

I go over and over

in the darkened courtyard.

You said you’d come, even though it’s night.

This evening to me

Is nothing but a grain of sand.

I’ll wait for you, only you, even if it’s forever.

(Chorus)
