Graffiti in Russia
Somewhere in Russia, creative people are trying to decorate dull fences, gray dirty walls, old worn-out buildings and more. The result of their work – bright, unexpected images that attract the attention of passers-by and uplifting and, in general, changing the face of the area to the better. Among street artists appear talented artists, whose names have become known in this kind of creativity. They rightfully occupy a high place in the Olympus of art. I do love Graffiti as a creative form of street art. Besides, street art in our country is increasingly gaining momentum and becoming more popular. It adorns cities, asks questions and gives answers, drawing our attention.

Animals Make Us Human
“I believe that the best way to create good living conditions for any animal, whether it’s a captive animal living in a zoo, a farm animal or a pet, is to base animal welfare programs on the core emotion systems in the brain. My theory is that the environment animals live in should activate their positive emotions as much as possible, and not activate their negative emotions any more than necessary. If we get the animal’s emotions rights, we will have fewer problem behaviors… All animals and people have the same core emotion systems in the brain.” ― Temple Grandin, Animals Make Us Human: Creating the Best Life for Animals

Theremin and theremists
If God or Gods or Angels or Devils could play a musical instrument, this would be, with no doubts, Theremin. An unprecedented Russian innovation, it’s simply magic. It’s a musical instrument that can’t be touched. Or, better: touched with no touch. The Theremin player, or the theremist, looks like a maestro with no button, a commander of an invisible orchestra, inebriating the listener with ether. In fact, theremin sounds like the wind coming inside through the window, or like the hypnotic chant of a mermaid, like the invisible presence of a phantom.
A performer manages sound without touching the instrument. Particularly, with the help of hand movements in the air near the two antennas, the only tool of its kind.
Meanwhile, Theremin sounds in academic, jazz, rock and pop music, Soviet and foreign films. Noteworthy, outstanding personalities played the theremin – Vladimir Lenin, Charlie Chaplin, and Albert Einstein. Today, such musicians as Sting, Jean-Michel Jarre, Rammstein, Led Zeppelin, Beatles, Pink Floyd, Portheshead, Sting, Сплин, БГ, and БИ2 used it.
