Yes, I know I haven’t been here for ages. Starting to write now is like starting a new blog. Probably later I will speak, but now I just want to show these pics.

And my student

Abdulov died

He was one of those soviet actors who stayed with us since our childhood. It was not that easy to get on the screens during soviet times so those few who did were famous and usually loved.

He was diagnosed with cancer 3 months ago, today he died.

So I see people started waking up after the new year celebrations. Russia was celebrating a lot as usual and just waking up right now.

Ice age. It’s the name of ice skating show where professional skaters perform together with famous actors. the main rule, actors don’t know how to skate before the show.

That’s how far they can go after some training. The winners of the show, Chulpan Khamatova ( actress) and Roma Kostomarov ( famous ice skating champion)

unfortunately there is some russian speech in the beginning and the end

and lots of russian talking here after 3d minute, but do watch the first part, especial after 1 min 47 seconds:)

these guys took the 2nd place according to judges and 3d according to viewers votes.

she is Alisa Grebeschekova an actress, he is Alexey Tikhonov a professional ice-skater

(I tried to pick up video with as less russian speech on the background as possible )

the song for the next one is sung by Alla Pugacheva, an “eternal” singer, she’s been singing for about 35 years, which means she’s been a singer for longer than I or my friends have lived for so it’s hard for us to judge her objectively. She is just there as a piece of culture. And I don’t think I’m the only one who thinks so. Each day of the show was based on various music themes, like disco, music from films etc. This one was based only on Pugacheva’s songs. You can see her just after the dance, a claping woman with lots of hair.:)

some extracts from this song are ” every break up is a little death<…> there where you areĀ  would be no place for me and there is none for you next to me”
