Party in Iran

Russian guy in Iran

After the latest events in Iran, their elections and all this hype with their nuclear program one Russian blogger decided to go there to check how the things are on place. Iranians always were of positive opinion of Russia and Russians so the trips there are not considered dangerous or unwanted for Russian people.

He spent some time there and told later in his blog that what he has seen there is a society of dual standards. From one side there is a dictatorship of Islamic revolution guards who prohibit many of the Western fun activities, such as drinking or public Western parties etc, like ladies can’t go outside without hijab or in short skirt, alcohol is forbidden, you can be executed for being gay, also there is an Internet censorship going on, so he couldn’t update his blog while being there.

But all this things are just a format state of society. When the doors closed people change their cloths to Western and make big parties with lots of drinks, women, satellite TV. Tech genius sell and install the internet un-blocking devices that can get around the censorship means and let you surf freely.

Since then many years has already passed but still it’s considered a must to have a chess playing set at home. The better looking the board is the better it is, some lucky ones get hand made sets, carved from wood or ivory coast.

Here are works of just one author, mainly from ivory, some of the might look nsfw, but those are just chess pieces.

Scene Roof Fail

Russian rock

A big concert was planned for the last saturday. Many foreign bands were invited like, “The Scorpions”, Alice Cooper or “Rasmus” but they canceled the show a few hours before it had to star.

The reason for this is that on Friday night the roof of the scene crashed down, right on the place where all the stars had to perform some hours later.
