Ant #264. Friendship...

"Friendship is always a love story. Besides, I even put friendship above love! I have an internal cult of friendship because friendship is disinterested, there is no full possession and there is a space which you concede to another person. For me friendship is the highest form of love, the highest degree of love. That's why it's a love story, of course, with no any self-interest of gender, any sexual manipulation... "

Said by one russian screenwriter and director, the woman that I respect a lot.

Ant #263. Dick.

A funny dialog I've had today with one of my best friends (a girl). She's waiting for me in my homeland.

- Come here [to Russia] and you can fuck someone?
- Fuck? Someone in Russia? Hell, no!
- Why not?
- I'm not into slavic people! Yuk and anti-sexy!
- I'm in depression and you keep killing me.
- Hahaha, it's not about you, I'm just more attracted to argentinians. Come here and you'll see!
- What you mean by that? I'm slavic!
- So am I!
- But you have a dick. Everybody loves a dick!
- Aahahahaha, this is epic! )))
- Say that I'm cool! )
- You're awesome! You're even better than a dick! XD

Just in case... XD

Ant #262. Phone number.

Nowadays your Facebook account gives much more opportunities to other people to stay in touch with you than your phone number.

When I meet new people, I totally don't mind to give them a link and then keep talking online.
But if they ask me about my phone number (for example, for whatsapp), I always get very confused. I cannot explain it! Facebook tells and shows much more about me than my phone number for sure, but to me it feels like they to look at my private area, inside of my underwear.

I know it sounds weird, but what can I do? I cannot control it! >_<

Ant #260. Fascism Anyone?

Fourteen Defining 
Characteristics Of Fascism
By Dr. Lawrence Britt

Dr. Lawrence Britt has examined the fascist regimes of Hitler (Germany), Mussolini (Italy), Franco (Spain), Suharto (Indonesia) and several Latin American regimes. Britt found 14 defining characteristics common to each:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism - Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

4. Supremacy of the Military - Even when there are widespread
domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.

5. Rampant Sexism - The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.

6. Controlled Mass Media - Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.

7. Obsession with National Security - Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions.

9. Corporate Power is Protected - The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.

10. Labor Power is Suppressed - Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.

11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts - Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.

12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment - Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.

13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption - Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.

14. Fraudulent Elections - Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

Ant #258. OMG!!!

Excitement in 3... 2... 1...

Of course, nothing is confirmed and may be it has nothing to do with Madonna, but rumor has it...
Billboard has just posted a strange article that "disco is fully back in vogue" and a "shape-shifting dance legend" is about to release a brand new song! It all is a top secret for now, but they got a permission to upload a teaser.

And obviously, all the fan sites have blown!
Check it out! Sounds flawless!

Earlier today we all saw Madonna's new pictures for L'UOMO VOGUE.
This is one of them! ^_^

Ant #257. Sweet Conchita Wurst.

Another arguing with relatives, and now because of Conchita Wurst.

The russian society turned insane when she won Eurovision. Countless and countless posts and articles about death of Europe, about family values, about tolerance that destroys the world. On the central TV they said that "Europe has a bloody diarrhea" and that "Beard is a sign of loneliness and Apocalypse!" XDDD

And it would have been just funny, if people weren't that serious about this shit.

But what is really funny is people talking about family values in a country which is a world leader in divorces and abortions.
