they sentenced me to twenty years of boredom [Aug. 13th, 2010|11:03 pm]
[mood | не плачь, маша, я здесь]

Through some weird twisty thalidomide spider cleaned tubes did I happen across a really amazing fact: my favorite Russian singer, Борис Гребенщиков (Boris Grebenshchikov) of the group Аквариум (Aquarium) covered a bunch of awesome songs in English, including two Leonard Cohen songs (1. Alexandra Leaving, 2. First We Take Manhattan). Love the former, don't care for the latter, and they're all worth listening to if you care for any of the artists listed. For the Russian readers and/or speakers and/or curious among you, he also did a radio show (text | audio) about Mr. Cohen a few years ago. He talks a bit about him, provides an awesome Russian translation of "Take This Waltz", and plays all of the songs listed.

он играет им всем,
ты играешь ему,
ну а кто здесь, сыграет тебе?

I just went downstairs to get some orange juice and the guy at the convenience store said "your voice looks different." (hours later) It reminded me of something, I couldn't figure out what, and now I recall:

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.
-- e.e. cummings


а в небе голубом горит одна звезда
она твоя, о ангел мой, она твоя всегда

And I actually just got back from both Berlin and Manhattan, how 'bout that.

"A hat, too."
"And you put on some lipstick."
"Yep, that's my whole changelog."
"I don't need a changelog, I can make my own diff."

глаголом жги сердца людей [Oct. 3rd, 2009|07:43 pm]
Watching the hot sunlight falling on the tablecloth covered with sticky blotches and crumbs, Andrei was suddenly struck by the thought of what a genuine tragedy it was for millions of light rays to set out on their journey from the surface of the sun, go hurtling through the infinite void of space and pierce the miles-thick sky of Earth, only to be extinguished in the revolting remains of yesterday's soup. -- The Yellow Arrow

... so that all the earth, crushed by prospects, in its lineal cosmic flight should intersect, with its rectilineal principle, unembraceable infinity; so that the network of parallel prospects, intersected by a network of prospects, should expand into the abysses of the universe in planes of squares and cubes ... -- Petersburg
