Cat eating spider


Original YT playout date: 19 September 2009
Duration: 6:20

Have you ever seen a cat eating spider? Now’s your chance.

Don’t miss the cute pics at the end of my wife with her daubs of cream when recovering from chickenpox a couple of months back!

I’m afraid I screwed up on the exposure in the middle bit, but I left it in anyway as it shows part of the ongoing saga of my terrace…

Original YT playout date: 13 September 2009

“The wife and kiddies like nothing better than being driven to the playgrounds in Warsaw’s only pre-war style rickshaw.

Features “”Bozhe khrani svoyikh””, by Zhanna Bichevskaya.

Words by G. Ponomarev.

Here are the chords (per amdm.ru)

Fm Fm+7 Fm7 Fm6
Если терпения нет и сил
Eb Ab F7
Если лукавый лик

Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C F7
Боже, храни Своих
Bm Fm
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C Fm C
Боже, храни Своих

Бога, Христа и пречистую Мать
Взыскивай каждый миг
Если начнут на крестах распинать
Боже, храни Своих

Дар искупительный жертвы Царя
Верой твоей постиг
За катастрофу и от Октября
Боже, храни Своих

В страшном смертельном пленении знай
И повторяй как стих
Верных Христу ожидает рай
Боже, храни Своих

Обворовало народ мой зло
Отняли имя у них
И национальность и дали число
Боже, храни Своих

Нынче у Русских коварный враг
Грабит и жрет за троих
Враг как всегда обратится в прах
Боже, храни Своих

(далее в Gm)

Gm Gm+7 Gm7 Gm6
Русская сила взойдет в зенит
F B G7
С нами архистратиг
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D G7
Боже, храни Своих
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D Gm D
Боже, храни Своих

Станет душа как родник чиста
Тайн приобщившись святых
За сохраненную веру Христа
Боже, храни Своих

Тула, Владимир, Курск и Рязань
Сонм городов дорогих
Просятся руки на правую брань
Боже, храни Своих

Если терпения нет и сил
Если лукавый лих
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
Боже, храни Своих”

To You, Who Soar on Eagle’s Wing – original Song for my wife


Original YT playout date: 13 April 2009
Duration: 1:29

To my wife, who is like an angel in human form, I wrote the present song (words and melody) in 2002 in Moscow.

I wasn’t able to play it very well, and I am still not very good at performing it – maybe some musicians out there can help me do a proper rendering of this composition? There are two verses here, but the whole poem was four verses long, and I cannot remember all of it. The chords given below are what they should be – the piano here is obviously not in that key, even before I chipmunked it!

1. To (C)you, who (G)soar on (a)eagle’s (e)wing

A(a)bove all (C)other (e)women,

To (a)you al(e)one this (a)song I (C)sing

My (a)heart with (G)love a-(e)brimmin'(E)

To (a)you al(e)one this (a)song I (C7)sing

My (F)heart with (G7)love a-(C)brimmin'(G)

2. The mountain lake and forest fringe

Are fair enough to view

But far beyond their beauty’s range

I hold the look of you

I cannot recall the third verse, which related to the sound and scent of her, but the fourth verse logically follows:

4. Because my senses you full fill

Good sense it seems to make

That I should love and love you still

And never you forsake.

And that’s exactly what I’ve done!

Huliganov’s Cookery Show #3 – Lithuanian Sandwiches


Lithuanian sandwiches, Huliganov Cookery Show, culinary, Elena,

Original YT playout date: 8 March 2009
Duration: 6:42

Following on from the success of “Huliganov Salad” and “Streets of Philadelphia”, Viktor Huliganov showcases “Lithuanian sandwiches”, in which at least one element, the bread, actually comes from Lithuania and the other bits can easily be found there. Probably.

No Lithuanians were hurt in the making of this sandwich. No Lithuanians have probably ever actually eaten this sandwich. The latter may account for the former, and vice versa.

The rooks, the horse, the cat and the snowman


Original YT playout date: 3 March 2009
Duration: 14:18

The rooks come home to rest, and I take my kids to their horse therapy. Later on we see our balcony snowman and discuss how the comments of a few morons led to my needing to take down a successful film. Between these morons on the one hand and morons like Warners on the other, I am losing material these days almost as fast as I can put it up.
