    I'm glad you liked Lotte Kestner. She's one of fav bedtime lullaby singers... real chill without a pill kinda stuff. If you've got anything like that, it would be more than welcome. I've even been listening to instrumental jazz when I come home so tired. Anyway, have a wondrous weekend... in the sun, perhaps?

    So how are your studies going? How do you get through those cold winters day after day? I know in that book of St. Peter all the pics were taken in summer... a great tourist promotion ;). I'm sure the city covered in snow is beautiful for a few weeks, but for me after that novelty wears off... well, I don't know how I'd cope :-o. Oh yeah, that li'le pic you see on my Last.fm page of the steaming boat through the ice flow. Well, that was apart of a your history. It was from a World War II merchant convoy steaming off to Russia. I did a massive Photoshop restoration of the image. Perhaps I should donate it to your country ;))? Does the Baltic sea get these ice flows? And what about the Neva river: does it freeze over in winter?

    I was thinking of u a few weeks ago, 'cause i went round to a friend of my mums and low and behold there was a rather large coffee table book of St. Peter on the kitchen table. As I flicked through it, I was left agog by the stunning architectural and cultural beauty of the city... it's on par with Paris (i've been there). My mum's friend is going on a cruise from the UK to St. Peter... to spend a *whole day* there! Don't how much u can do in that time. I thought I could spend a whole week going around exploring all the different buildings, museums, churches and art galleries. I know you mentioned it has opened up to tourism, but I think there's still perhaps a stigma related to the Soviet era: without all the communism, St. Peter would be recognised as one of the top 5 of 10 cities in the world... up there with Paris, London and NY. A real travesty; however, I think it will be one of those cities in perhaps another 20 years when it gets more widely promoted.

    Yeah, my current avi pic is one of my originals... a bit psycho hey (:'>? How do you think that would go in The Hermitage? Might keep people away! haha... especially if they posted it out the front somewhere. So how do you appraise art in context? That pic (it's A3 size) was drawn with a bunch of coloured textas (I only needed black & red) in just 2 hrs. How do you compare that to a work that's been done with a complete palate of oils/acrylics that has taken weeks to paint? Anyway, it represents better than words the way i've been feeling of late. I didn't really like it at first, but I've grown to accept it... the guy who did the pro scan of it liked it. It always surprises me... when someone likes something you don't like... but i guess that's the same with music. I'm sure you must have debates with classmates about works of art as well?

    Okay so it's been a long time between shouts... sooorreee :(. Yeah it's summer here and i don't really spend much time at home... I've been going out swimming down the beach, kayaking & hiking amongst many adventurous things I like doing. Yeah I even went for a swim of over a km in the ocean this afternoon. I'm kinda training for these long distance ocean swims. I did one last year... 2.3 km around Shark Island... ooooh, sounds scary hah? They also have another one around Wedding Cake Island... now that sounds more romantic? I often come home and want to drop a shout, but am too tired & have been stressed out, so haven't spent much time on last.fm. When I came home this eve, I fell asleep after listening to two songs of Mother Mother & all I've had for dinner is 2L of choc milk!!!!

    Okay, I did go in search of Nikolai Mirlikiisky, but got lots o' pious pics. So I tried looking for Grandfather Frost: is this the ridgy-didge outfit (yeah, that's an Aussie colloquialism for bona fide) or is this simpler costume more what the average Grandfather Frost looks like? I think he's better suited to Christmas in Australia on the beach. Yeah, the blue and white matches the ocean and waves, very nicely ;)). I think I'll order one in time for next Christmas and parade around on the beach dressed in that garb (:'> Can I order one on Russian eBay?? haha

    Are ya trying to learn German? (:'> Well you're well and truly addicted to Rammstein at the moment. Hopefully it's only music, nothin' illicit ;)?? Although it would've been under the old régime, so you're lucky^^. When I heard Rammstein as interlude music between support acts at a concert last year, I really loved it; but only 'cause it was coming out these awesome speakers. Hard rock / metal sounds crap out of li'le computer speakers... but since I got these audiophile speakers, I'm listening to some harder stuff... well, during the day anyway... neighbours at night ;)

    Fear not the year past went so fast, and if it were fraught with bane, the pain will have taught you to feel fain once again. So ween for little in 2015 and indeed all will supervene ;). Off now... search for the gleam of a moonbeam and... dream! :)

    Hey! I think you should check out The Wombats and We Are Scientists, they're quite similar to the Pigeon Detectives :)

    Indeed your perfectionism is perspicuous ;). My entire Last.fm page is a homage to my own perfectionistic fatuity! LOL. I've scoured the Internet for hours for many of those images you see on my page, then spent an inordinate amount of time modifying them to my own predilections: they're kinda like cover versions of songs. Being supercilious, I think my re-interpretations are always better than the originals ;) haha. At best, perfectionism is a curse; at worst a disease. Life doesn't always go as we hope or plan and when it doesn't, if you're still holding onto those perfectionistic ideals, well you'll probably be beset with melancholy. From your nom de plume, I think that's a hint at your woes. If you can absolve yourself of those perfectionistic tendencies, the reality is you'll achieve more in your professional life and lead a happier personal one. I know it's hard to believe, but it's true. I still grapple with this existential concept :(.

    Yeah, my PhD was in biochemical engineering, but I've always had art in my heart with an enterprising bent. I'm dabbling in painting at the moment in my spare time. It's rather serendipitous that you're a Russian studying art history, because my artistic muse is Wassily Kandinsky. I love his dissonance between geometry and free-form work. I'm sure you must know a great deal about him. I'd really like to read an autobiography about his life; in English! That's not that easy to find. I've only read snippets about him on the Internet. When you study art history, are you learning about the evolution of techniques and movements or about the sociological relationship between art and the cultural zeitgeist? This must sound like an essay question ;) haha. I do believe St. Peter is an enrapturing city more so than Moscow: after all you've got The Hermitage!

    I got back from my misadventure on the weekend... battered and bruised... ouch! I got your shouts when I was laying in a tent not far from where you see that new pic on my page. I was rocked to sleep listening to the ocean's roar by night. I went for a midnight walk in a T-shirt and shorts under the stars down to the beach and did some stargazing. I did plenty of crazy things... apart from being smashed in the nose with a surfboard, I fell off a horse riding bareback straight into the waves! The hang gliding was exhilarating: I know why birds are so happy ;)). No doubt, the polar opposite of your world ;). Do you have to wear a hat when you go outside like than female Russian soldier on my page? Even though everything is frozen, can't you go ice-skating? The one time I hate being in Australia is at Christmas time when it's stinkin hot... there ain't no cheer here; it feels oh so queer ;). I'll check out your Russian music in the New Year, no fear ;).

    thnx 4 all the shouts.... i'm in atown 800 km north of Sydney... it feels like Frankfurt airport by the beach... all i hear is German French Dutch & sometimes Slavic languages being spoken.... sometimes even English ;)) Went horse riding along the beach & then bareback straight into the ocean... of course i fell off my horse LOL & couldnt get back on :(. It's almost too hot. So how is life in St P?

    Yeah, I also stole System of a Down & Dead Sara from u as well. I did find this Russian band, PPK (ППК) by chance and it appears to be some kinda trance, not something to which you can dance or prance without a lance perhaps ;)). Ich mache eine Reise shon. Bis später mal. :))

    It's really interesting reading your shouts. I dropped German 'cause I was doing a PhD at the time and things got too hectic. The biggest problem I had learning German was my English grammar sucked... like most of us folk in English speaking countries. Don't be surprised, but your English is probability better than many native speakers. Really! Perhaps us Anglophones are probably arrogant in a way ;))... I think the schooling systems expect the rest of the world to learn English!! It's almost become the universal language, but like you, it's fun learning another one. In Australia though, we're so far away from everyone else, most people don't feel a need... you kinda need a friend or two to chat with to practice :((. Oh yeah, my grandparents emigrated from Kaliningrad when it was Königsberg: a part of Prussia not Russia ;). I'd like to visit the city, but some Lithuanian friends said it's too dangerous ;)) LOL?? What do you think?

    21 Nov 2014 Rispondi
  • DrMojoRising

    and hey, Last.fm isn't an English exam (:'> LOL. You don't need to worry about any spelling / grammar mistakes. My maternal grandparents emigrated to Germany from Kaliningrad; now part of your country ;). I studied German at uni for a li'le while & our teacher told us Russian was one of the most difficult languages to learn. Do you think that's true? What I found, once you learn another language, it's easy to learn others... but I think I'll skip Russian ;)). I can understand why others get crazy bout learning em... it's fun^^ Do want to learn any other languages?

Descrizione







Hi guys, Ann here. I'm an Art History student,

a self-forgetful bookworm,

an insatiable music collector

and a lover of 50s' fashion and music.



Yeah, I am. I wish I could have lived back in 50s and 60s. A lot of awesome things were going on back then, like J.D. Salinger, for instance, a writer that had touched my heart so deeply it nearly hurt. I'm myself going through the rye presently, being eighteen and having a very vague idea of what is this all about, and everything in J.D.'s books is painfully relatable.




I'm generally obsessed with reading, and I've read nearly all the classics of XIX and XX century literature (Dickens, Jane Austen, Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, Virginia Woolf, Harper Lee, William Faulkner, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Chekhov, Bulgakov etc etc etc; you name it and we'll discuss it) and I guess that gives me a reason not to like all of them and save all my love for Erich Maria Remarque, J.D. Salinger and to a great extent Stephen Fry. If there is something I hate it's the unsubstantiated judgement and prejudice. Being an Art History student, I face these all the time. My mission is to learn to speak of Art and culture as unobtrusively and objectively as possible. And to get a PhD, too, and hopefully become a hotshot Art History professor. That is all I need from life, and basically it's all about knowledge. I want to know my subject extremely well, I want to know life better, I want to know new people, new languages, new books and new music. Which is why I am here. I bet you have a couple of bands that you believe more people should know about. Well, I am that potential audience, suggest them to me right now!

The [ridiculously short] seen-live list. The fun fact about it, though, is that these guys are my absolute favorite people in the world of music. And in the whole world, if it comes to that. And I've seen them both about only two months apart from each other. They've been living somewhere at the back of my head for about five years now. It was more than nice to see them in the real world for a change.

Fall Out Boy, St Petersburg, A2 club, 30th of July

I will sing to you every day
If it will take away the pain
Oh and I’ve heard you got it, got it so bad
'Cause I am the best you’ll never have

Serj Tankian ft. Philharmonic Orchestra, St Petersburg, Big Concert Hall Octyabrsky, 28th of September

Behind closed eyes lie
The minds ready to awaken you,
Are you at war with land
And all of its creatures?
Your not-so-gentle persuasion
Has been known to wreck economies
Of countries, of empires,THE SKY IS OVER...



This is what I was mostly like at both gigs. I think my ribcage will forever hurt due to all the happiness it couldn't accommodate on these two nights.




And now for some random virtual Hoarding OCD stuff:
