Здравствуйте!

My band teacher did want us all to watch this for whatever reason…

For them, joining the dark side means peeing on the rug.

historical-nonfiction:

St. Basil’s Cathedral, in Moscow, was built by Ivan the Terrible in honor of Basil the Fool.  The story goes that in the 1500s, an apprentice shoemaker/serf named Basil stole from the rich to give to the poor. He also went naked, weighed himself with chains, and rebuked Ivan the Terrible for not paying attention in church. Normally, this is where we would write “And Ivan had him executed” but apparently Ivan liked Basil, and instead had the cathedral built for him after Basil’s death. Ivan then had the architect executed, so he could never design a more beautiful building.

GIVEAWAY!
I’m doing a small giveaway on this blog. This is a set of 15 postcards featuring VDNKh, a huge exhibition center in Moscow. They are from 1982, and they’ve been feeling really lonely lately with all my attention thrown at New Year postcards. So I’m searching a loving home for this set! Its cover is not of collectable quality, but postcards are in a very fine condition.
If you want this set, just reblog this post. Shipping, domestic or international, is on me.
I’ll allow a few days before choosing a winner.

Tumblr

So I finally gave in and made a Tumblr. Who knows how long it’ll last though, I may lose interest quickly. You never know.
