16 September 2018. We Bid Farewell to a Real Mensch…

I D Kobzon with DNR Head of State A V Zakharchenko, murdered by the CIA and its Galician nationalist goons one day after Iosif Davydovich’s death

One of the lights in our musical firmament went out with the death of I D Kobzon. Iosif Davydovich wasn’t only a great musician, he was a patriot, a man who never forgot where he came from… in other words, a mensch. He was a Donetsk homeboy and he always remembered his hometown and his homies. He went back often and supported the patriot resistance to the Galician Uniate nationalist trash. He knew the depth of the antisemitic hatred that animated most of the nationalists in the American-installed junta (ironic, isn’t it, that the Americans who support the junta most vociferously are Jews). The lying Anglos put him on their “sanctions list” for that. Iosif Davydovich couldn’t visit relatives in the USA. Great people, the Anglos, aren’t they? The depth of their evil and greed never ceases to amaze me.

Iosif Davydovich stood for what he believed in. Ponder this… the Anglos adulate John McCain and hate I D Kobzon. You show the world your true character with whom you honour.  That speaks volumes of the Anglos… none of it good…

Вечная ему память

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…

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)
