Agonizing night

Intelligent Evil
I always thought that "cry oneself to sleep" was a figure of speech. Kinda considered it physically impossible - first you cry, then you sleep, not at the same time. Well yesterday I was proved wrong. Oh and it hurts like hell in the head afterwards. The more you know!

The Six are back!

Intelligent Evil
Просто, чтобы показать, что я еще жив, вот вам пара богоподобных цитат из нежданно попавшего мне в руки 3 тома Secret Six:

"I met a devil once. Said his name was Neron. Asked me what I wanted for my soul. Know what I told him, Padre? More bullets." (c) Deadshot

"- I was thinking, what its like to be abandoned and tortured and abused and forgotten. When your life is so worthless that your only degraded value to anyone is when your pain gives them amusement, and the person entrusted to care for you sees you as more disposable than a used tissue...
- ...?!
- But then I thought... I wonder what its like to fuck a butterfly?" (c) Ragdoll

The ever bleeding wound of stone

Intelligent Evil
Уф, почему я не стал рассказывать про Большой Каньон сразу?
Потому что это нечто, что потрясло меня, пожалуй, сильнее всего в моей поездке. Вина тут целиком и полностью моя, я изначально неправильно отнесся к Каньону - я подумал, что он по внутренним ощущениям будет сродни знакомым и полюбившимся мне горам, но я не мог ошибиться сильнее.
Большой Каньон или, как более корректно было бы перевести его - Великий Каньон - очень специфическое место. Вне всяких сомнений величественное и вызывающее трепет... а еще жуткое и пробирающее до самых костей.
Он словно огромная рана в теле земли, по дну которой без остановки течет бурая река крови, окруженная алыми монолитами. В этом месте чувствуется угроза и затаенная ненависть. Не зря индейцы считали, что в Каньоне живут злые духи, а тех, кто рискнул поселиться там, называли "Анасази" - древний враг. Минутка истории: из членов первой экспедиции, которая прошла Каньон от начала и до конца, выжили лишь четверть участников. Многие вскоре утратили рассудок. Из погибших же лишь половина пала жертвой естественных причин (отравление, звери, природные опасности), остальные просто пропали без вести.
Мне остается лишь порадоваться тому, что наша экскурсия там была не ночной. Хотя часть меня, что стремится к тьме, искренне сожалеет об этом.
Стеклянный мост в форме подковы - аттракцион известный по всему миру. Он называется Скайволк и позволяет пройтись по небу. Я ходил по небу над Каньоном и каждое мгновение чувствовал его голодную пасть под ногами. Я совершенно не боюсь высоты, более того, обычно я люблю ее, но там в первый раз в жизни я ощущал, что падение вниз означает неминуемую жуткую смерть.
Это место вдохновило меня на написание стихотворения. Мне кажется, это название подошло бы Каньону больше.

Ребятушки, такое дело; 15 марта будет выступать стенд-ап комик, ирландец и просто хороший человек Дара О'Брайан, а человек, с которым я собирался пойти, скорее всего не сможет составить мне компанию.
Есть ли среди вас те, кто как и я жаждет увидеть выступление этого потрясающего человека вживую?

Дело будет происходить на английском языке. Цена вопроса - 2000р. Я билет еще не брал и делать это нужно как можно скорее - их осталось не так много. Надеюсь и жду.

Cutest foxes live on Tatooine

Intelligent Evil
yesterday I came back from a tour that brought me from Africa straight to the sandy homeland of Luke Skywalker. And no, I haven't overheated my head. I ve been to the famous Sahara desert. And while there I ve visited the place where Tatooine part of the Star Wars filming occured, even with some of the decorations intact.
It was amazing! And I ve also seen and touched one of the cutest animals of our planet - fenek, the little fox. It is a furry fox, size of a kitten with big ears and kind eyes. It is beyond adorableness!

Sahara can now be checked out of my "Places a Man must visit" list. How did it get there? Well it happens that a wise man once said that only a man true of heart can resist the Desert's call. When I first heard of it I laughed (cause I was young and stupid lol), later on I took it more seriously but still couldn't bring myself to believe there's such a thing as a Desert's call. Turns out there is. And it is strong as hell. One moment you just stand there, the next something makes you go a step forward. Then another. Then another yet. And so on. You know there is nothing ahead but you still go and go and go until you cannot see people behind anymore and thats about the second you realize, its time to turn back. But part of you still wants to go farther yet, deeper into the desert's embrace because it makes you feel there is something out there waiting for you. And who can really say there isn't? Certainly not those who are lost in the sands and they are the only ones who know for sure. The call can come at the most unexpected places; in the deep sands where no life can be seen in miles, at the bottom of the ancient ocean that dried out and left only mysterious salty flatlands for generations to follow, in the rocky hills of the Ber-Bers' abandoned village. The only thing you can know for sure is it can't occure to you when you expect it to.
Sahara has its ways to lure people and it will never cease calling for those whose heart is ready to hear. I ve heard it and found enough willpower to resist it.

Anyway tomorrow I am coming back to Moscow and I am comin from Africa as pale as ever. Because I ve always hated the sun and this time I managed to avoid it enough not to get burned while getting more than enough of opportunities to swim for my pleasure. So how's the weather there? Hot or rainy or both as usual?

Illegal tours and snails invasion!

Intelligent Evil
Yesterday was the day of my first tour. It was a 3-part tour but I picked it solely because of its first part, namely the Udna ruins. They were so interesting to me for a reason - it was an archaeological site thats never been open to public before. Well now I know that they probably still aren't.
I am 90% sure that what we visited was an illegal tour arranged either by the archaeologists themselves or by the security chief (more likely). Why? Well where else will you see a tour with no signs or borders whatsoever, where there's only 1 guard per site and tourists can walk, climb and touch wherever they please. Oh and when we reached the largest site our "guide" (who spoke terrible russian and couldn't tell us much beyond "Jirinovskiy was there") was constantly speaking to the chief of guard who told him where is what in french. I could understand part of their dialog so the guide only repeated what the guard said a minute ago making up some details so it would sound more truthful.
Nevertheless such disdain for this country's historical values gives us a rare opportunity to visit an actual archaeological site with real ruins but without crowds of gaping idiots from all over the world and without any restrictions as to where to go and what to see. If you come to Tunis in the nearest year (I doubt this tour will last longer) come to Udna, its a rare experience worth taking.
Also there were a lot of spiky plants of all shapes and sizes covered with thousands (really thousands!) of pearly white snails. At first i thought them to be some kind of berries but no, they were snails all right! Quite disturbing view really.

Icy shores of Africa.

Intelligent Evil
Greetings from Tunis (I know its called some other way in proper english but I'm lazy to google, so I transliterated^^)!
I arrived yesterday at night and spent today trying to relax.
Few things to know about this place.
1) Oficially its Africa but its way colder here than in Moscow. I'm actually freezing at night. As far as I recall last time I visited Africa, it used to be much warmer here, like 30+ in the shadow. Right now I can barely swim in the pool, forget about the icy sea.
2) The hotel we re staying at, was advertised to us as a 5 star ultra-platinum quality. To be fair its somewhere around 4 star, and we were given a room in the basement. No kidding.
3) We signed up for 3 tours and hope the weather gets better here.

Stay cool.

Ребятушки, важный вопрос! Дано тестовое задание для собеседования в переводческую компанию:
задание
А теперь 2 важных вопроса:
1) Вот эта самая наценка на спец-лексику в итоговом расчете умножается на кол-во страниц или она статична по цене на одну страницу, сколько бы страниц в тексте не было?
2) Округление производится во всех расчетах или только при подсчете итога? В смысле мне считать как 3 страницы или как 2.8?

Ваше мнение очень ценно для меня. Вдвойне ценно если вы переводчик)

Night acustic orgasms

Intelligent Evil
В очередной раз слушая подборку песен из Гитар Хиро, я остановил свое внимание на одной потрясающей композиции: Muse "Knights of Cydonia".
В ней очень мало текста и очень много музыки. Музыка более чем крута, а текст просто гениален. 8 строк, не считая припева. Вот они:

Чертовски жизненно.

I am a gambling man in a gambling land!

Intelligent Evil
Yesterday I was playing in the famous casino of Monte Carlo. It was my very first casino experience but I enjoyed it a lot.
I even found a Star Wars slot machine there! It was talking with the voice of C3PO and had some really nice animations. I lost 15 euro but I wasn´t upset by it)
Novovira showed how bad it is twice more for the last couple of days.
First they lost our hotel reservation and had to put us in another hotel nearby and today they showed some awesome driver-guide cooperation: our driver refused to stop and wait for another bus, where our next guide was. Yes she simply refused. It took more than an hour of spanish arguing and phone calling from our guide to persuade her.
Yet again I warn you: NEVER use services of the Novovira tour company!
If everything goes on fine, I may return to Russia in a day or 2.

Intelligent Evil
Nolan, you son of a bitch! How, HOW, HOW do you manage to create characters so different from their original form and yet so believable, complicated and awesome?
How do you manage to create movies so great at emotional level that they make my eyes wet?
That small post indicates that yesterday I ve seen the new Dark Knight movie. In english. I find it so good that it must be in each and every "to see" list if you ve watched the previous 2. It really puts an end to trilogy. Final is so intense and yet so complete that I wouldn't end this trilogy any other way. There simply is no better ending.
This movie has such plot twists that I was sitting in the cinema with wide eyes and gaping mouth, trying to figure how could I miss THAT. But you need to know comics to get that effect. Oh and Bane´s voice. Simply Bane´s voice. Its majestic.
Each new Nolan´s movie is better than the previous one. Prestige, then Dark Knight, then Inception and now this masterpiece. I can´t imagine how great, his next project is going to be.
I know I´m under strong impression right now. But I gonna see this movie at least twice more in Russia. So prepare yourselves!)

Most important things.

Intelligent Evil
I ll have to be brief about most things, since people here are especially greedy when it comes to the internet. I honestly don't know why. Yesterday I was here, in the very same small internet cafe, and there were 2 administrator-girls who said the price was 1,5 euro per hour, now its some gloomy old guy who for some reason doubled the price. But anyway thats still better than goddamn France (I HATE FRANCE!!!), where 1 hour of internet costs.... 5 euro. Seriously 200r for an hour of internet? Thats sick.
So here's short recollection of my brightest impressions for the last week:
1) 3 dumb guides. Very proud of being licensed guides and very bad at telling things.
2) 2 nice guides. Both are unlicensed. 1 was capable of talking 8 hours nearly non-stop (and telling really interesting things too!). I am deeply impressed.
3) Passing the border of hell. Literally. You may have heard about terrible forest fires in Spain. Well I ve been there. It really looks awful. Everything is black and grey for kilometres around. The trees are charred, the grass is reduced to coal-colored piles of dust, the mountains are covered in ash. Its truly a painful sight. Add a strong scent of smoke everywhere and you ll get a perfect picture of hell. No colors, only twisted black trees, burned ground and ash everywhere.
4) Italian pizza. Good god, its delicious beyond measure.
5) Italian and spanish beaches. Sea is great here and I enjoy swimming a lot.
6) French toy-store. So many wonderful things I would love to have in my childhood (some of them would be nice even now) and so many things I would love to buy for my future offspring. There was an actual pokeball there, real-size one, with small pokemon inside it! *_*
7) Spanish park with awesome green labyrinth and a great beach in a cove under it. Guide said, its a nudist beach. Lol, too bad I had no binocular with me :p
8) We had an awesome Wabanuki(native-american)-looking driver in Spain. He listened to some real nice music.
9) We had great hotels everywhere but in France.
10) Local city hall is a casino at night. I find it especially funny.

I do hope, you read it, cause even when I can't write, I still read all of you.
Hopefully I ll get another chance at internet before leaving Italy. Have a nice end of July there!

3rd day of spy work, still alive.

Intelligent Evil
Well I promised, I´d write if I had the chance and here I am. In Spain currently.
Its my 3rd day in the enemy territory and so far I´m quite alive despite all their efforts. They ve already tried to burn me, to drown me, to sabotage my plane and to mislead me into the wilderness.
First, I want to warn you: never, and I do mean f**king NEVER, use the services of the tour company Novovira. They suck. Their planes suck (that would be company Red Wings), their guides suck and they don´t care about their clients.
Let me tell you this little story from the beginning.

Вдохновение приходит из самых разных источников. В данном конкретном случае оно пришло ко мне из комбинации двух великолепных комиксов Вертиго: "Люцифера" и "Сэндмена".

Я только что посмотрел одну из лучших рецензий Ностальгия-Критика всех времен. Это музыкальная рецензия на Мулен Руж. Мало того, что у нас с Критиком совпадает мнение по поводу этого фильма; мало того, что в этом ревью масса хороших шуток; мало того, что это ревью-кроссовер... Они поют! И делают это лучше, чем "звезды" фильма, на который собсно дается рецензия. *_*
