Western Hypocricy at it’s Finest

Remember #FreeSavchenko ? This was a Twitter campaign aimed to bring attention to the imprisonment of the Ukrainian helicopter pilot Nadezhda Savchenko. All the Western media was abuzz with the news of this heroic woman imprisoned by the Terrible Putin’s regime. Newspapers and magazines were publishing stories about her and her life. Television Muse Outlets ran long segments about her heroic fight against the evil Kremlin. People were showing up to rallies and demonstrations holding up her name.

Time flies by, and now that this obviously mentally unstable individual is in prison again, this time the Ukrainian prison, no one seems to care. You don’t even hear it anywhere in the news. CNN is not talking about it, neither does the Fox News Network. It’s completely gone off the face of the Earth. What happened? This just happened 4 years ago. And now we don’t even hear about it.

I do not hear any word from the state department, which used to have such strong and publicly loud opinions all the time. What are we paying our taxes for? Why did we even sponsor that fucking regime change in Ukraine? It’s not like any American actually cares about what goes on outside of his fence. (I am not even sure that many Americans can point out Ukraine on a map)

We give millions of dollars to this country every year in a form of aid, but we don’t seem to care.

Does that sound like rational decision making to you?

Stop wasting our tax dollars trying to overthrow the world!

Music That Makes Your Soul Hurt (in a good way)

Zara and Dmitry Pevtsov performing at the Day of Russia celebration in Crimea on June 12, 2015.  This is a mix of an old Russian folk song “Ohh you wide steppe” and “Dle Yama” (which i’m not even sure what language that is in, maybe Crimean Tatar or Tadjik.)  But it sounds amazing.

Just like some of the comments said, it makes your soul hurt, and brings tears to your eyes.

French Pop Music at its Best: Indila – Derniere Danse

Ohh my GOD !!!  This is a great track by a French speaking Indila.  I first heard this song performed by a kid on a Russian “Voice” rip-off TV show.  This 14 year old girl with an amazing voice sang this song, made my chest cringe, and brought a tear to my eye.  Literally.

In fact it was so awesome, I found a clip.  Enjoy.

One Hit Wonders: Bloodhound Gang – The Bad Touch

You and me, baby, ain’t nothing but mammals, so let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.  Hahaha. Another blast from the past.  This time in a form of a one hit wonder: Bloodhound Gang. I don’t care what they say, its a catchy tune.  Apparently YouTube users agree.  The video has 247.6 million views as of right now.

Blast From The Past : Snow – Informer

Wow.  Talk about bringing back some memories. This track was all over the PPV Music Videos channels in Los Angeles.  I first came to this country at the end of 1991, and I was just 12 years old, and just learning to speak English when this song came out.  I was in LA, and Hip Hop was hopping in the California in the 1990s.

Years went by, and I completely forgot about it, but then I downloaded a “Mix for Your Ride #31”, by this Russian DJ, DJ Farta. And one of the tracks was Informer, by Snow.  So naturally, I had to throw that into my collection.  For the old times sake.  Old school.
