Hercules the Greek demi-god does not understand English. Better to say it to him in Russian:

Да здравствует Россия!

Если Вы русский? то, что объясняет каждую вещь!

Sorry, Hercules, Russian language is really very difficult. Probably You've had in
mind: " Если Вы русский, то это всё объясняет!" [~"If You are Russian, then it
explains everything"] ?

Dino, this 'raven' is not the Greek demi-god, sure, but he's right, my English is
awful: 'govno', 'lame horse', 'dead carcass'. Such is the Form. But the Content
exists as well: idea, thought, 'fresh blood' of the spiritual life...Listen,Father, I
shall tell You a fable:"Once upon a time The Eagle asked the Raven:tell me, my
good raven-the-bird,how is it that your race lives to the age of 300years,while
we Eagles only live to the age of thirty and three?- 'The reason, my good Sir, is,
because You devour your prey alive whilst we live upon dead carcasses.' The
Eagle thought,well,We shall try that too. So,they thereupon went out together,
found a dead horse and alighted upon it. The raven began to feed & enjoyed it.
The Eagle tried several morsels, shook his pinions & saidv to the Raven: Nay,
brother Raven, rather than live 300 years upon dead horses, I better once
feast upon a live victim and then let Fate do its worst!". You see, Father, those
striving for the Content, for the 'fresh blood' of the ideas, they 'spit' on 'dead
horses', while the 'good ravens' can't live without 'dead carcasses', without
'govno'. It is their 'modus vivendi'. And "Thus it was, thus it is and always will
be", thanks for The Hymn, Father!

Let's toast what you said with some Tchaikovski music:

Cordial thanks, Dino. While my long walks 'per pedes apostolorum' I hear Sviridov's
divine music:

Sorry, Dino, may be this one:

Awesome. Here is part of another exquisite Russian refinement of the highest artistry on earth:

By the way, Sa-sha:

Given the austerity regime in Greece at the moment, can I use Sviridov's devine piece with the appropriate heading?

sa-sha - 19 Sep 2011 // 10:18:49

Your choice, Dino. But, imho, Part 9 (esp. starting from the second minute of play)
would do better for Your goal...:-)
