Where is he?

No news? I get pics of him regular on the Facebook. Do you have FB account? There is very good KR fan-group "Keanu Reeves Spain" Never mind Spain, it's all in English and there are the people from all around the world  (Jul 13, 2015 | post #2)

Men that we love usually does not exist - or they hide only in our heart dreams. It's much more intimate , hard, near desperate - if you could see clearly man that you love and stil love him as he is - with all "thanks" and "dispite of" . But that's beyond the fandom  (Apr 19, 2015 | post #46)

Uh, welcom, dear Altzheimer! Didn't give you the link https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=exda HmsKpnM And once more about translations: few tens millions of ex-"sovok's " sing this song as it comes from your own heart. Ok , maybe not they all at the same time, maybe it's only for me kind of soundtrack of this days. And seems - it's translation from Robert Burns! Sorry, so far I found only this one with Spanish(!) translation ;) https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=Zc14 3Ut1BoM  (Apr 6, 2015 | post #25)

I played fals and Googled "my hear stopped, my heart stood still". Honestly speaking, Spleen passed me by. By the way, you'd be agree that many poems when they became a songs, hits you much deeper? I'm not unconditional "fan" of Tsvetaeva, but how could you don't feel this ( if you understand whereabout it goes) . The subtitles are not ideal - from the first line: the charm was exactly to not use "enamoured " but "ill " or "sick". Oh , speaking about nostalgy for good old Soviet childhood ( without sarcasme, besides that childhood always looks better from the distance, it *was* good) That movie - most beautyfull Soviet Christmass fairytail, all movies of Ryazanov are amazing - so many layers, irony and poetry. Opposite Chekhov, he might hate the system , but he loves the people. His movies should be given as study cases to all Russian language/art/cultu re/hystory students. Or better not - obligation kills the pleasure. Of course, so many details, jokes, hints hardly understandable for "non-sovok ". You may always ask me.  (Apr 6, 2015 | post #24)

Because love is mostly like my favorite campari-orange - painly sweet and delicious bitter same time? Because your heart knows exactly how happiness feels , when it has scars of previous pains ? Because February has only 28 days? [For pragmatical minds - because it wasn't electrical lamp, but a wax candle ;) ]  (Apr 6, 2015 | post #23)

Oh , sorry - shoes and wax "fell" or "were falling" . Not very important and we're agree that translating poetry is hopeless anyway ;)  (Apr 4, 2015 | post #20)

WOW! I'm impressed! First geuss -right. I mean - describe sex withoud one nacked word?! I padali dva bashmachka So stukom, na pol. I vosk, slezami, s nochnika Na plat'e kapal. And two little shoes fall with a tap onto the floor And wax, like tears,fall from night lamp to the dress. And then- Melo ves' mesiats v fevrale, I to i delo: Svecha gorela na stole, Svecha gorela. It was snowing whole the month in February And once and again Candle was burning on the table Candle was burning I call that erotic for adults. Most exciting are things not showed , not prononced...Most sensitive G-dot is between our ears, I believe. Our immagination  (Apr 4, 2015 | post #19)

Well, there is one undoubtedly Great on my scale among all Great Russians. Pushkin is uncomparable, so modern, clear, sparkling, his poetry is to drink, to breath in and out and there between - you heart stops to beat for a little moment. Biggest enigma for me - how someone could translate his poetry, generally, Russian poetry? Pussian language is pretty cruel to his translators. You can say "Candle was burning on the table" . And you can say " On the table candle was burning" -already little bit uncomfortable for an English ear, isn't ? But you can even say "Was burning on the table a candle" - now you clearly hear that though Russian accent as by cleaning lady in your office or taxi driver, don't? Curious, if you could guess, where it came from? Hint - in the original poem it's the first, most acceptable for an English ear version. For Russian one - it's just not evryday's form, that a kind of prepares you to something special . And special comes, believe me. It's one of the most beautyfull, sensual, even erotical , modern poems  (Apr 3, 2015 | post #15)

O, thanks to the little Topix-angels , my previous comment didn't disappear! About Great Russians: I told it before, it should be guilt of obligated school programm, but I have a kind of allergy for Russian classic writers. By Tolstoy I really love one line [Andrey Bolkonsky speaking to Pierre Bezuhov] : "Never get married, my friend!" Chekhov said once that to write really good book , the writer has to hate his characters. Well, thank you so much, in that case may I be free to hate you back! Dostoevsky was a bit too crazy even for me - by him it was diagnose, not a lifestyle , and too much of his illness comes through in his books. But he did had a style! But Gogol - absolutely another case! Would you like to know big secret? This great Russian ...wasn't Russian. He was, same as me, Ukrainian. Last time I believe more and more that there are quite a difference between two "brother-folk s". Ukrainians are much softer. Probably you read "Dead souls" ( is it Dead Souls in English translation? see you, for a translator challenge begins right by the titel- "dusha" means in Russian "soul" ,but thereis an expression "...[10,100, 1000] souls of population" - as a quantity unit for humans. So, maybe it's Dead Persons?) Did you read Taras Bulba? It's filmed- of course, it's so cinegenitic! But I admire the most Evenings at the farmstead near Dikanka. That's Ukraine pur sang! Shame on me, from whole Bulgakov I've read only Master and Margarita -AMAZING! Maybe I was too afraid to get disappointed by his more realistic works (and , by the way, he lived long time in my home city - Kiev, that's why he has to be genious , hehe :)  (Apr 3, 2015 | post #14)

Wrote long replay to eksor - and at the moment I hit the send-button my youngest dog bite at the cable - no internet connection, everything disappeared. I have ( besides an adult golden retriever) a 3 months old puppy of German pointer. Life in my home is safe only on highest levels - like kitchen cabinet, bookcase, wardrobe. And how long there?  (Apr 3, 2015 | post #13)

About Mumford&Sons ( by the way, no one of them calls Mumford and there are no sons ;-) ) :be aware, it's a kind of modern folk-rock. Not everyone's cup of tea. Honestly speaking , not the mine - I never should look for them by genre. Actionally , I don't remember, how did I "fall" on them - but I was sold immediately. If you're Youtube-links type - here is one good https://www.youtub e.com/watch?v=5kg6 fvb3CHQ . Don't you have Spotify/Spotlite on your PC? I mostly set it at the background, when doing something else on my comp. Game of Thrones - I'm the second on Earth who haven't seen it, then . I don't trust filming-version after I saw accidentally bath-scene. Brienne has noble heart, but she has to be pretty ugly. Period. If she looked as that actrice - Jaime should't get back his lost hand, but an extra(strong) finger -sure ;) I got infected by Game of Thrones by Doc and swallowed all books (appeared in Dutch translation). That was certainly my cup of tea - or more like my glass of Guiness :)  (Apr 3, 2015 | post #12)

Michael - you mean archangel? (Personally I knew few Michaels and some of them you could call bad ass, but is it possible that we have same bad asses in our circles?) And Bible quoting goes hard by me - I didn't study it at school in my Soviet childhood , only picked few stories here and there from fiction books or movies. With all freedom of interpretation by the artists... I miss that world heritage education, seriousely. Especially last time, when I got hypnotised by Mumford&Sons .Love the sound, even if everything looks one long song. (OOh, that feels so gorgeous - to whine and sniff, shouting false "I really fucked it all this time, didn't I my dear..." Seems, I successfully can stap twice into the same murky waters, whatever Bible sais ... ) But I can't get in full trance - they use not my Facebook-English but A+ level and their texts are overloaded by Bible links. I desperately wish, I could understand it all :(  (Apr 1, 2015 | post #10)

Keanu is Multi-Racial and You Are All Racists

He spent few monthes in China together with his friend Tiger Chen during filming Man Of tai Chi, but even before he has visited China and i believe, Tiger's family. saw pictures ones. [ Sorry, didn't understand, was you speaking to all posters here of was it replay to some post in particular? We certazinly don't hate him, even those who speaks critically or bitter. In the best case - it's "love/hate " relationship. And yes, you're right, it's "one-way relationship" of course - we are only small, barely visible, far satelites on his orbit :)  (Mar 16, 2015 | post #31)
