As Maugli became the Kazakh

Before the beginning of a picture "Nomad" the credit announces that its inspirer was the first president of Kazakhstan Noursultan Nazarbaev. It is possibly caused by aspiration to declare the national identity and to designate on a card of the modern cultural world the state which is considered in the old manner as a makeweight to Russian empire in the West. Meantime Kazakhs have their own history, tradition and heroes. For example, the main character of a film-epopee, Mansur, conducts a family tree from Chingishan, that is a subject of national pride for the «new Kazakhs». It goes without saying, they have a full right on this. However, the curious paradox is that they have decided to declare the world their originality using a language of the Hollywood stamps. By the way, the picture was bought for hire by Harvi Weinstein, the producer of all Tarantino`s films. It`s probably indifferent to the foreign spectators that epic Kazakhs in "Nomad" are represented by slightly tinted Chineses
and Mexicans. In general "Nomad" is a film not for those who can distinguish the representatives of these unlike against each other nations. To not complicate the spectators who are not understanding history of Turkestan, all necessary data are stated by "nomad" Oraz for the staff. This role is played by actor Dzhejson Scott (hawaiian-chinese origin) which more of others is similar to the present Kazakh. Once Dzhejson Scott has played Maugli in «Jungle Book». The first Kazakh film-epos with the budget in 40 million dollars (under informal data) was created for all the world and by efforts of all cinema world. The script was written by Azerbaijanian Rustam Ibragimbekov. To one of producers became well-known czech Milosh Forman. Hes compatriot Ivan Passer, the director, has been replaced then by other hired "soldier", Sergey Bodrov. The customers wished to get the good of an export level, and this purpose was reached.

Zemfira is not fated to become the philosopher.

The most well-known student of philosophical faculty of the Moscow State University is threatened with deduction. Apparently, the singer has decided to study sciences of Aristotel and Gegel in absentia. As "Komsomolskaya Pravda" writes, for all semester she has never appeared at lectures. Moreover - winter session is ignored by Zemfira too. She didn`t come on the examination which was passed on 27th of December, after what a serious conversation with a dean of faculty Vladimir
Vasilevich Mironov existed! He explained to the future philosopher, that the question costed sharply enough: or she undertakes study, or will be deducted. However on the 11th January examination on logic has passed too without Zemfira`s participation, and she has not found time to warn a dean's office about the absence. If student Ramazanova will ignore also the third examination, deduction is inevitable - by the rules of the Moscow State University.

Zemfira will act with Queen.

After a joint performance of Zemfira and Queen at the Russian Music Awards ceremony in the Kremlin and during the afterparty for the musical "We Will Rock You", the English musicians sent the Russian singer an invitation to continue the creative collaboration. The essence of the offer is extremely simple: to continue in the same role, but to a much greater audience. As a concert venue, Queen have suggested the Red Square - it was probably recommended by McCartney as a very good place for
a rock concert. Also, there is even a chance that president Putin will come to listen the concert. Zemfira immediately agreed to Queen`s offer. Now Roger Taylor`s and Bryan May's representatives carry on with negotiations for the formal aspects of the future super-concert. Russia didn`t see Freddie Mercury, but it does not mean that we cannot hear Queen. Perhaps, Zemfira is the correct choice to give us the sensation of real Queen`s magic in Moscow.

There is a legend that being in Tomsk Chekhov lost a galosh what let the sculptor Leonty Usov portray the well-known Russian writer barefooted.
