There’s an inner thing in every man, Do you know this thing my friend? It has withstood the blows of a million years, And will do so to the end. It was born when time did not exist, And it grew up out of life, It cut down evil’s strangling vines, Like a slashing searing knife. It lit fires when fires were not, And burnt the mind of man, Tempering

As a longtime Vysotsky lover I am deeply moved by seeing these Swedish musicians sining his greats songs translated in Swedish. Music is really a universal language :-) The Saker
Dear American drivers, My heart goes out to you. You have a huge country, millions miles of road, no public transportation system to speak of, you drive since the age of 16 and yet, nobody has ever bothered to teach you even the basics of driving.

Thanks to D.A. for sending me this hilarious and very well done video:
A big thank you to Eugenia for subtitling this video!

Boris Johnson gives the Russians a case of hysterical laughing When I first heard that the ex-Mayor of London Boris Johnson had won an anti-Erdogan insult competition I was not too interested. But when I saw that this was reported on the hyper-official “Weekly News with Dmitri Kilesev” I was quite amazed.

Alone with my thoughts this evening I walked on the banks of Tyne I wondered how I could win you Or if I could make you mine Or if I could make you mine The wind it was so insistent With tales of a stormy south But when I spied two birds in a sycamore tree There came a dryness in my mouth Came a dryness in my mouth For
“Did they expect us to treat them with any respect?” Roger Waters, The Fletcher Memorial Home I never had anything good to say about the Eurovision. I could tell you all the reasons why I hate the crap people nowadays think of as “pop music”. But since Paul Joseph Watson did a special video expressing pretty much the same feelings as I have, I will give him the floor: So
A very good video about my favorite sport – freediving – which I practiced for now over 40 years, going from snorkeling off a sand beach at age 10 to freediving in the caves of the beautiful springs of Florida at the ripe age of 45! Now, at 53, I am more careful, but I still freedive when I have an opportunity. Enjoy! The Saker
