5 An Abandoned Soviet Cultural Center

An Abandoned Soviet Cultural Center

As the photographer says: "In Soviet times authorities paid greater attention to the leisure time of Soviet citizens. In the 70's and 80's a lot of Dom Kulturi (or House of Culture in Russian or Cultural Centers) were built. Movies were shown there, and dance and music classes were held both for adults and for kids. They were named as a rule after the factory or college which they belonged to." Then the author says that in the city where she was growing up, there
were a few Dom Kultury. One of them was (unofficially) called "Steklyashka" (piece of glass) and another was called "Neutrino" - that's because her city was connected with nuclear power for the Soviet Union. "So this Dom Kultury I visited also belongs to some factory ... this is probably the most beautiful house of culture I ever visited." So we can check if it really is as beautiful as the author finds it, right inside this post.
19 Blood of Bloodhound Gang

Blood of Bloodhound Gang

What you see in the image above is a musician from the famous band Bloodhound Gang. What he is going to do next is to shove the flag of Russia into his pants during the show the band had in Ukraine
a few days ago. What you see below is a few punches and kicks made by some Russian activists. Who did they kick and punch? The same guy who holds the flag on the photo above.

Russian Music 1987

After 70 years of the iron curtain and a ban on any music that could sound "Western" to a Russian ear, gradually the first bands appeared trying to sound as Western as they could. Among lots of examples that really
are not worthy of being listed here, this one is pretty positive in two ways: it sounds pretty decent even now, and at the same time the band members look dramatic. The audience is worth a look as well.
2 Not Your Usual Gangnam Style

Not Your Usual Gangnam Style

They've got gangnam style, but we've got something else. Keep looking to see who is doing what. It's a pretty mind-breaking thing to see, or is it the doppler effect in action. They really should patent this kind of dance and sell the
rights to entertainers all over the world. However, they say this is not a new idea, and it was invented by German/Polish cabaret dancers some time ago, however it has never before been performed by a team of Russian students.

United Forever in Friendship and Labor

Have you ever wondered how the Soviet anthem sounds in English? Sometime ago an American celebrity sung the
magnificent Soviet anthem for the enjoyment of the peoples of the West. Long live the Soviet Union!

Stupidity. Talent. Alien Languages.

In today's show you are going to see some stupidity, some talent and some alien languages. Russian soldiers performing African rap songs when bored - who would have thought of this some thirty years ago. The rest is mostly
plain stupidity though it is often captivating and should have its place too. But it all starts with the sheep. Real, real sheep. And no road cams today, no crashes, no cops. And you should smile at least twice.
7 With a Song About Beloved Company

With a Song About Beloved Company

We have found more videos made by people who are devoted to the companies they work for. This time it is the staff of the trade-union "Iskra"
("Sparkle") who sing about their job and workers of the company "Post of Russia". Probably it was fun to make the videos.
3 Proud To Work Here!

Proud To Work Here!

The Murmansk hospital created a musical advertising video, where its workers sang about their job, how much
they were devoted to their work and how much they liked to "live" in this "blue house" as they called it.
