30 September 2017. Some of My Favourite Things… I D Kobzon Sings Hava Nagila

******

______________________________

I D Kobzon, one of Russia’s most-loved singers, just turned 80! They had a big bash for him in Moscow… this is from his birthday concert. Iosif Davydovich is still going strong! He’s a Gosduma Deputy; he still performs regularly. Therefore, all the American hot air about Russian anti-Semitism is pure bullshit and lies. He’s on the American sanctions list because he’s a Donetsk homeboy and he supports the Donbass Orthodox socialist patriots in their fight against the American-led Uniate nationalist aggressors. I should also add that Iosif Davydovich holds the Order of Glory and Honour, the second-highest award of the Patriarchate of Moscow and all the Russias

Orthodox people… reflect on this… note that rightwingers like Victor Potapov and most of the Amerikantsy converts support the Uniate/schismo aggressors to please their neoliberal American masters. They support the murder of our Orthodox children in the Donbass by the Americans’ Uniate attack dogs (but they’re PRO-LIFE, dontcha know)… yet, they holler about communists being “murderers”. I call them hypocrites, liars, and frauds. I’m not alone in that…

Remember that Comrade Zyuganov isn’t only a believer… he’s a close personal friend of Patriarch Kirill… they don’t tell you that on the convert-run website Russian Faith, do they? It tells you much about their veracity and reliability…

27 August 2017. Bright Moments in the Russian Diaspora… Sergei Zharov… He Kept the Flame Alive in a Dark Time

******

________________________

The Don Cossack Chorus needs no introduction from me. It helped to keep the flame of Russian culture alive here in the diaspora. We preserved our culture here due to the presence of such people as S A Zharov and Metropolitans Leonty Turkevich and Anastasy Gribanovsky. There are those who’ve succumbed to the siren-song of the West… they sold out for transitory material gain… however, many of us haven’t, and the exemplary example of our forebears strengthened our resolve to keep to the proven path of our ancestors.

Вечная память to all of our fathers and mothers… we’d be nothing without them…

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.
