    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    So, back on Oct 17th I posted about the New Moon soundtrack. The soundtrack debuted at number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart and climbed to number one a week later after selling 153,000 copies in its first full week of release.

    Today on CNN there is an article about the album and one of the first singles to make it big off that album, "Satellite Heart" by Anya Marina.

    I must admit, it is a nice little romantic song and it does go great with the story line. It was written just for the movie. I wonder if she will be a "one hit wonder" or if she will make it past Twilight.

    Here is a link to the video:

    Totally agree - free publicity. All the kids will head straight for bittorrent or Rapidshare and get the uncensored version anyway. What a waste of time.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    So, back to CUTTING EDGE....

    SIA... is an Australian pop singer who has been creeping up little by little on Americans. She has done work both with a group (Zero 7) and solo. She has been popular on the dance scene in the UK due mainly to remixes of her songs.

    Here in the U.S., her voice is known, but not her name.

    Her single of “Breathe Me” was featured in the NBC Olympic ads (actually in some Australian Olympic ads too).

    Her songs have been on all the “right” shows…Private Practice, Grey’s Anatomy, Ghost Whisperer, Doll House and even for closing of the final series episode of Six Feet Under http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=el4eUKmLujg (her song starts about 3:25)

    Her cover of the song “Under the Milky Way” is currently being used in a national commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7E1xcGgRzU

    Sia has a new album due out in 2010 (We Are Born) and her newest work is actually as a feature on a single called, “You’ve Changed” with Lauren Flax. This is Lauren’s FIRST single. Up until now Lauren has been a DJ and has done remixes! Well… this song appears to be making it big with the remix/dance scene.

    The big question is… is this song going to be popular enough for the U.S. to FINALLY know the name to match with the voice they have been hearing all over the place? Will this song be the one?

    Here is the original and just SOME of the remixes out there for this song! iTunes has 9 available for purchase!!

    Lyrics: Under the Milky Way Tonight:

    Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty,
    Sound of their breath fades with the light.
    I think about the loveless fascination,
    Under the Milky Way tonight.

    Lower the curtain down in Memphis,
    Lower the curtain down all right.
    I got no time for private consultation,
    Under the Milky Way tonight.

    Wish I knew what you were looking for.
    Might have known what you would find.
    Wish I knew what you were looking for.
    Might have known what you would find.

    And its something quite peculiar,
    Something that’s shimmering and white.
    Leads you here despite your destination,
    Under the Milky Way tonight
    (chorus)
    Under the Milky Way tonight.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Although I usually listen to Russian music, I can't deny some of my favorite Polish songs as well beautiful language. This song is particularly mystic sounding - like a lullaby:

    Goya - Smak Slow
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptnPObkMPGM

    Mow do mnie tak,
    bo lubie slow twoich smak...mow tak.
    I chociaz czas,
    pewnie odmieni kiedys nas...mow tak.
    Mow do mnie tak,
    bo lubie slow twoich smak...mow taaak.

    Zakrywam twarz, lecz to nie placz,
    przez jedno slowo zawstydzona, tak jak owoc rumienie sie.
    Przez jedno slowo zawstydzona, tak jak owoc rumienie sie.

    Mow do mnie tak,
    bo lubie slow twoich smak...mow tak.
    I chociaz czas,
    pewnie odmieni kiedys nas...mow tak.
    Mow do mnie tak,
    bo lubie slow twoich smak...mow taaak.

    Nie sadze by, bylo mi dosyc ich,
    bo w takiej chwili twoje slowo tak jak owoc smakuje mi.
    Bo w takiej chwili twoje slowo tak jak owoc smakuje mi

    Mow do mnie tak,
    bo lubie slow twoich smak... mow tak.
    I chociaz czas,
    pewnie odmieni kiedys nas... mow tak.
    Mow do mnie tak,
    bo lubie slow twoich smak...mow taaak.

    Ja znów kogoś gryzę
    Ja kogoś obrażam

    Bo kiedy tylko staje się
    Zbyt ludzka niż byś tego chciał
    Wtedy oto widzisz że
    Jesteś tak jak ja

    Nie jest źle
    Jaaaa jestem winna
    Dobrze jest
    Zawsze będę winna

    Nakarm swą ciekawość
    Daj mi prawo abym ja
    Mogła Ciebie bawić
    Mogła Ciebie zbawić
    Mogła w końcu zabić Cię

    Bo kiedy tylko staje się
    Zbyt ludzka niż byś tego chciał

    Możesz na mnie oprzeć się
    Jaaa jestem winna
    Możesz na mnie liczyć bo

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    To all, I am sorry that I have let you down about this next one! The past few days I have not been feeling so great and did not get around to posting about this next song/video which is a shame as I knew about it when it only had 300 or so hits and now it has over 3 MILLION and that is in less than 4 full days!!! If you do keep up with the playlist, I had added it to the playlist right away so you might know about it already!!

    So, what is this amazing song/video that has 3 million hits in less than 4 days? It is of all things, The Muppets version of Bohemian Rhapsody! Not only that, it is in the new 1080p format!! Take a look and a listen and enjoy! NOTE... most of the lyrics have been changed. If anyone needs clarification of them just let me know and I will type them out. They are VERY clever.

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Forget the turkey, stuffing (or dressing), gravy, cranberry sauce, sweets (or yams) with or without fluff, and the pie (whatever kind)... Thanksgiving is NOT complete without a trip to Alice's Restaurant, all 18 minutes of it!

    Even if you don't celebrate "our" Thanksgiving, take a minute and think about one thing you are thankful for (hopefully you have many) and then take a trip with me to Alice's Restaurant, where you can get anything you want, excepting Alice.

    This is a live version done by Arlo in 2005.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_7C0QGkiVo

    Here are the lyrics from the 1965 version:

    Alice's Restaurant
    By Arlo Guthrie

    This song is called Alice's Restaurant, and it's about Alice, and the
    restaurant, but Alice's Restaurant is not the name of the restaurant,
    that's just the name of the song, and that's why I called the song Alice's
    Restaurant.

    You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant
    You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant
    Walk right in it's around the back
    Just a half a mile from the railroad track
    You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant

    Now it all started two Thanksgivings ago, was on - two years ago on
    Thanksgiving, when my friend and I went up to visit Alice at the
    restaurant, but Alice doesn't live in the restaurant, she lives in the
    church nearby the restaurant, in the bell-tower, with her husband Ray and
    Fasha the dog. And livin' in the bell tower like that, they got a lot of
    room downstairs where the pews used to be in. Havin' all that room,
    seein' as how they took out all the pews, they decided that they didn't
    have to take out their garbage for a long time.

    We got up there, we found all the garbage in there, and we decided it'd be
    a friendly gesture for us to take the garbage down to the city dump. So
    we took the half a ton of garbage, put it in the back of a red VW
    microbus, took shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed
    on toward the city dump.

    Well we got there and there was a big sign and a chain across across the
    dump saying, "Closed on Thanksgiving." And we had never heard of a dump
    closed on Thanksgiving before, and with tears in our eyes we drove off
    into the sunset looking for another place to put the garbage.

    We didn't find one. Until we came to a side road, and off the side of the
    side road there was another fifteen foot cliff and at the bottom of the
    cliff there was another pile of garbage. And we decided that one big pile
    is better than two little piles, and rather than bring that one up we
    decided to throw our's down.

    That's what we did, and drove back to the church, had a thanksgiving
    dinner that couldn't be beat, went to sleep and didn't get up until the
    next morning, when we got a phone call from officer Obie. He said, "Kid,
    we found your name on an envelope at the bottom of a half a ton of
    garbage, and just wanted to know if you had any information about it." And
    I said, "Yes, sir, Officer Obie, I cannot tell a lie, I put that envelope
    under that garbage."

    After speaking to Obie for about fourty-five minutes on the telephone we
    finally arrived at the truth of the matter and said that we had to go down
    and pick up the garbage, and also had to go down and speak to him at the
    police officer's station. So we got in the red VW microbus with the
    shovels and rakes and implements of destruction and headed on toward the
    police officer's station.

    Now friends, there was only one or two things that Obie coulda done at
    the police station, and the first was he could have given us a medal for
    being so brave and honest on the telephone, which wasn't very likely, and
    we didn't expect it, and the other thing was he could have bawled us out
    and told us never to be see driving garbage around the vicinity again,
    which is what we expected, but when we got to the police officer's station
    there was a third possibility that we hadn't even counted upon, and we was
    both immediately arrested. Handcuffed. And I said "Obie, I don't think I
    can pick up the garbage with these handcuffs on." He said, "Shut up, kid.
    Get in the back of the patrol car."

    And that's what we did, sat in the back of the patrol car and drove to the
    quote Scene of the Crime unquote. I want tell you about the town of
    Stockbridge, Massachusets, where this happened here, they got three stop
    signs, two police officers, and one police car, but when we got to the
    Scene of the Crime there was five police officers and three police cars,
    being the biggest crime of the last fifty years, and everybody wanted to
    get in the newspaper story about it. And they was using up all kinds of
    cop equipment that they had hanging around the police officer's station.
    They was taking plaster tire tracks, foot prints, dog smelling prints, and
    they took twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy photographs with circles
    and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one explaining what each
    one was to be used as evidence against us. Took pictures of the approach,
    the getaway, the northwest corner the southwest corner and that's not to
    mention the aerial photography.

    After the ordeal, we went back to the jail. Obie said he was going to put
    us in the cell. Said, "Kid, I'm going to put you in the cell, I want your
    wallet and your belt." And I said, "Obie, I can understand you wanting my
    wallet so I don't have any money to spend in the cell, but what do you
    want my belt for?" And he said, "Kid, we don't want any hangings." I
    said, "Obie, did you think I was going to hang myself for littering?"
    Obie said he was making sure, and friends Obie was, cause he took out the
    toilet seat so I couldn't hit myself over the head and drown, and he took
    out the toilet paper so I couldn't bend the bars roll out the - roll the
    toilet paper out the window, slide down the roll and have an escape. Obie
    was making sure, and it was about four or five hours later that Alice
    (remember Alice? It's a song about Alice), Alice came by and with a few
    nasty words to Obie on the side, bailed us out of jail, and we went back
    to the church, had a another thanksgiving dinner that couldn't be beat,
    and didn't get up until the next morning, when we all had to go to court.

    We walked in, sat down, Obie came in with the twenty seven eight-by-ten
    colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back
    of each one, sat down. Man came in said, "All rise." We all stood up,
    and Obie stood up with the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy
    pictures, and the judge walked in sat down with a seeing eye dog, and he
    sat down, we sat down. Obie looked at the seeing eye dog, and then at the
    twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles and arrows
    and a paragraph on the back of each one, and looked at the seeing eye dog.
    And then at twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy pictures with circles
    and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one and began to cry,
    'cause Obie came to the realization that it was a typical case of American
    blind justice, and there wasn't nothing he could do about it, and the
    judge wasn't going to look at the twenty seven eight-by-ten colour glossy
    pictures with the circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each
    one explaining what each one was to be used as evidence against us. And
    we was fined $50 and had to pick up the garbage in the snow, but thats not
    what I came to tell you about.

    Came to talk about the draft.

    They got a building down New York City, it's called Whitehall Street,
    where you walk in, you get injected, inspected, detected, infected,
    neglected and selected. I went down to get my physical examination one
    day, and I walked in, I sat down, got good and drunk the night before, so
    I looked and felt my best when I went in that morning. `Cause I wanted to
    look like the all-American kid from New York City, man I wanted, I wanted
    to feel like the all-, I wanted to be the all American kid from New York,
    and I walked in, sat down, I was hung down, brung down, hung up, and all
    kinds o' mean nasty ugly things. And I waked in and sat down and they gave
    me a piece of paper, said, "Kid, see the phsychiatrist, room 604."

    And I went up there, I said, "Shrink, I want to kill. I mean, I wanna, I
    wanna kill. Kill. I wanna, I wanna see, I wanna see blood and gore and
    guts and veins in my teeth. Eat dead burnt bodies. I mean kill, Kill,
    KILL, KILL." And I started jumpin up and down yelling, "KILL, KILL," and
    he started jumpin up and down with me and we was both jumping up and down
    yelling, "KILL, KILL." And the sargent came over, pinned a medal on me,
    sent me down the hall, said, "You're our boy."

    Didn't feel too good about it.

    Proceeded on down the hall gettin more injections, inspections,
    detections, neglections and all kinds of stuff that they was doin' to me
    at the thing there, and I was there for two hours, three hours, four
    hours, I was there for a long time going through all kinds of mean nasty
    ugly things and I was just having a tough time there, and they was
    inspecting, injecting every single part of me, and they was leaving no
    part untouched. Proceeded through, and when I finally came to the see the
    last man, I walked in, walked in sat down after a whole big thing there,
    and I walked up and said, "What do you want?" He said, "Kid, we only got
    one question. Have you ever been arrested?"

    And I proceeded to tell him the story of the Alice's Restaurant Massacre,
    with full orchestration and five part harmony and stuff like that and all
    the phenome... - and he stopped me right there and said, "Kid, did you ever
    go to court?"

    And I proceeded to tell him the story of the twenty seven eight-by-ten
    colour glossy pictures with the circles and arrows and the paragraph on
    the back of each one, and he stopped me right there and said, "Kid, I want
    you to go and sit down on that bench that says Group W .... NOW kid!!"

    And I, I walked over to the, to the bench there, and there is, Group W's
    where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the army after
    committing your special crime, and there was all kinds of mean nasty ugly
    looking people on the bench there. Mother rapers. Father stabbers. Father
    rapers! Father rapers sitting right there on the bench next to me! And
    they was mean and nasty and ugly and horrible crime-type guys sitting on the
    bench next to me. And the meanest, ugliest, nastiest one, the meanest
    father raper of them all, was coming over to me and he was mean 'n' ugly
    'n' nasty 'n' horrible and all kind of things and he sat down next to me
    and said, "Kid, whad'ya get?" I said, "I didn't get nothing, I had to pay
    $50 and pick up the garbage." He said, "What were you arrested for, kid?"
    And I said, "Littering." And they all moved away from me on the bench
    there, and the hairy eyeball and all kinds of mean nasty things, till I
    said, "And creating a nuisance." And they all came back, shook my hand,
    and we had a great time on the bench, talkin about crime, mother stabbing,
    father raping, all kinds of groovy things that we was talking about on the
    bench. And everything was fine, we was smoking cigarettes and all kinds of
    things, until the Sargeant came over, had some paper in his hand, held it
    up and said.

    "Kids, this-piece-of-paper's-got-47-words-37-sentences-58-words-we-wanna-
    know-details-of-the-crime-time-of-the-crime-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-
    you-gotta-say-pertaining-to-and-about-the-crime-I-want-to-know-arresting-
    officer's-name-and-any-other-kind-of-thing-you-gotta-say", and talked for
    forty-five minutes and nobody understood a word that he said, but we had
    fun filling out the forms and playing with the pencils on the bench there,
    and I filled out the massacre with the four part harmony, and wrote it
    down there, just like it was, and everything was fine and I put down the
    pencil, and I turned over the piece of paper, and there, there on the
    other side, in the middle of the other side, away from everything else on
    the other side, in parentheses, capital letters, quotated, read the
    following words:

    ("KID, HAVE YOU REHABILITATED YOURSELF?")

    I went over to the sargent, said, "Sargeant, you got a lot a damn gall to
    ask me if I've rehabilitated myself, I mean, I mean, I mean that just, I'm
    sittin' here on the bench, I mean I'm sittin here on the Group W bench
    'cause you want to know if I'm moral enough join the army, burn women,
    kids, houses and villages after bein' a litterbug." He looked at me and
    said, "Kid, we don't like your kind, and we're gonna send you fingerprints
    off to Washington."

    And friends, somewhere in Washington enshrined in some little folder, is a
    study in black and white of my fingerprints. And the only reason I'm
    singing you this song now is cause you may know somebody in a similar
    situation, or you may be in a similar situation, and if your in a
    situation like that there's only one thing you can do and that's walk into
    the shrink wherever you are ,just walk in say "Shrink, You can get
    anything you want, at Alice's restaurant.". And walk out. You know, if
    one person, just one person does it they may think he's really sick and
    they won't take him. And if two people, two people do it, in harmony,
    they may think they're both faggots and they won't take either of them.
    And three people do it, three, can you imagine, three people walking in
    singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and walking out. They may think it's an
    organization. And can you, can you imagine fifty people a day,I said
    fifty people a day walking in singin a bar of Alice's Restaurant and
    walking out. And friends they may thinks it's a movement.

    And that's what it is , the Alice's Restaurant Anti-Massacre Movement, and
    all you got to do to join is sing it the next time it come's around on the
    guitar.

    With feeling. So we'll wait for it to come around on the guitar, here and
    sing it when it does. Here it comes.

    You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
    You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
    Walk right in it's around the back
    Just a half a mile from the railroad track
    You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant

    That was horrible. If you want to end war and stuff you got to sing loud.
    I've been singing this song now for twenty five minutes. I could sing it
    for another twenty five minutes. I'm not proud... or tired.

    So we'll wait till it comes around again, and this time with four part
    harmony and feeling.

    We're just waitin' for it to come around is what we're doing.

    All right now.

    You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
    Excepting Alice
    You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant
    Walk right in it's around the back
    Just a half a mile from the railroad track
    You can get anything you want, at Alice's Restaurant

    Da da da da da da da dum
    At Alice's Restaurant

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    I don't know why I have liked this song since I heard it for the first time. It is not my taste, but I'm charmed a bit by the song. The lyryc is about life. Something like this
    people meet each other in this world. They love and leave. They are friends and they are enemies. Sometimes, everything is so complicated, but anyway, you are a director of your own movie called your life.

    There is a verse in English. I cannot write it down correctly. Please be kind, promt it.

    Группа "Градусы" / band "Degrees (Percent)"

    Режиссер / Director

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wrAKK78-bAE

    Я закрою за собою, ты сказала: "Я не стою."
    Я подброшу на удачу, докурю и пойду дальше.
    Не дождётесь, не заплачу, если что – любой получит сдачи.
    Я в этом фильме главный актёр, я - сценарист в нём, я – режиссёр!

    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня…
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!
    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня.
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!.

    На минуту замечтаюсь: не летаю, но пытаюсь.
    Упаду и поднимаюсь. Всё в порядке, оклемаюсь.
    Не дождётесь, не заплачу, если что – любой получит сдачи.
    Я в этом фильме главный актёр, я - сценарист в нём, я – режиссёр!

    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня.
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!
    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня.
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!

    English text. Please, help to write it down.

    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня.
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!
    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня.
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!

    Враг мой,
    Друг мой,
    Враг мой,
    Друг мой.

    Враг мой, бойся меня. Друг мой, не отрекайся от меня
    Нелюбимая, прости меня… Любимая, люби меня!

    Re: Music: Cutting Edge and What You Are Listening To?

    Here is a funny Finnish song that has been translated into Russian.
    Called Levans polkka
    It's a polka (traditional) but it has been modernised. Very cheesy but fun!
    Hm.. I'm sorry, but isn't it Ievan polka?(Eva = Ieva?)

    Muse?
    Yes, you are very good! It is the first song from the three part "Exogenesis: Symphony" from their latest album, The Resistance.

    The term exogenesis is the technical name for panspermia, the hypothesis that life is seeded across the universe from other sources, for example, arriving to Earth on comets, hence "cross pollination".
    I'll post all three songs, lyircs and a little something about each song.

    Exogenesis: Symphony Part 1 (Overture)
    The first part of the song starts off mellow.
    Matt said, "Part 1 is a jaded acceptance that civilisation will end
    Here is a live version, sound not great but very cool to watch and here is the album version

    Lyrics:
    Aping my soul,
    You stole my overture,
    Trapped in God's programme,
    Oh I can't escape

    Who are we?
    Where are we?
    When are we?
    Why are we?
    Who are we?
    Where are we?
    Why, why, why?

    I can't forgive you,
    And I can't forget

    Who are we?
    Where are we?
    When are we?
    Why are we?
    Who are we?
    Where are we?
    When are we?
    Why are we in here?


    Exogenesis: Symphony Part 2 (Cross Pollination)
    In the Muse Q&A in November 2008, Dominic Howard stated that the song would change genres throughout, indicating a significantly different middle section.
    Matthew Bellamy stated, "Part 2 is a desperate hope that sending astronauts to find and populate other planets will be successful alongside the recognition that this is the last hope."
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_sHYn_cSn0

    Lyrics:
    Rise above the crowds
    And wade through toxic clouds
    Breach the outer sphere
    The edge of all our fears
    Rest with you
    We are counting on you
    It's up to you

    Spread our codes to the stars
    You must rescue us all
    Spread our codes to the stars
    You must rescue us all

    Tell us,
    tell us your final wish
    Now we know you can never return
    Tell us,
    tell us your final wish
    We will tell it to the world


    Exogenesis: Symphony Part 3 (Redeption)
    The track by track review by Gigwise describes that it concludes in a "suitably Muse-like way" and that "the song builds into an emotive and epic chorus where Bellamy and Wolstenholme share vocal duties".
    Matt said, "...Part 3 is when the astronauts realize that it is just one big cycle, and recognize unless humanity can change it will happen all over again."
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e4EqjvnWfRM

    Lyrics:
    Let's start over again
    Why can't we start it over again?

    Just let us start it over again

    And we'll be good
    This time we'll get it...
    We'll get it right

    It's our last chance to forgive ourselves

    My friend has been to their concert recently. AFAIK most of them(all?) are immigrants from xUSSR. The singer has a realy heavy Russian accent and inserts Russian words and phrases pretty often Mostly swear words actually =)

    Anyway, all this makes a realy charming atmosphere.

    Hadn't watched Eurovision for a few years but this year I watched it with some friends here in London. We were totally blown away with how well the show was executed. Have never seen a Eurovision that spectacular!

    It was clear half way through that Rybak would win, so it wasn't as exciting as I remember it from earlier... But the show made up for it... I thought the greeting from the space station was awesome.

    Is it just me, or isn't it a bit strange that Azerbaijan & co are in Eurovision? Are they actually located in Europe per se? Israel was always a sort of honourable exception.

    I think it's great that they participate, but personally I would never have said that they were European countries. Or? They are East of Turkey right --- and most of Turkey is in Asia! Great music from there though! I think it's just a question of time before one of those countries win the competition.

    I didn't realise the Russian army was still called the Red Army - or is it just this group that has kept it's old name?

    The Red Army was officially renamed to Soviet Army somewhere about 1942, but for historical reasons old name was acceptable in USSR. In Russian Federation military forces are not referred to as Red Army (though some attributes like red banner are still kept along with new ones).
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Basil... I was blown away by this video. What an amazing performance. It starts out with the traditional Russian Folk Music and then all of a sudden you are in Hip-Hop and then Pop and then the pink tank! The lights, choreography, music and transitioning from one thing to the next is just.... brilliant!

    Thank you for posting this!!!

    Johanna... I think it was Waterlaz who wrote about the White Army and maybe Red Army as well in the Movie Thread. As I recall he gave some really good background information about them if you want to search for it.
