Put your iPod (or mp3 player) on shuffle, list the first ten songs that play.

See? there's one out of ten which is not japanese, two out of ten are not even rock, and only 4 (four) of them are by Chiba Yusuke.... So, as you see there's absolutely no need to worry for me!;))

It's been a whiiiiile since I posted any meme here. Here we go! :) A meme nabbed from [livejournal.com profile] jade_teacup and [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit:

Post a picture in my comments of what you think describes me when you think about what/who I am. No matter how surreal or plain. Give no written explanation. Just an image.
(Optional: Post this in your journal and see what images you get.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Чтой-то давненько я никаких флешмобей и меме не вешала, а? Вот, флешмобчик позаимствованный у [livejournal.com profile] jade_teacup и [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit:

Вместо коммента запостите картинку, которая, как вы думаете отражает мою сущность как вы её воспринимаете. Картинка может быть любой - совершенно сюрной или очень простой - на ваше усмотрение. Никаких письменных обьяснений о причине выбора имиджа не давайте, только картинку.
Если хотите, то перепостите это дело у себя в блоге и посмотрите, какие ваши образы он вам принесёт...:)

I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] xxpartyguyxx to do the movie meme.

Rules: Don't take too long to think about it. Fifteen movies you've seen that will always stick with you. First fifteen you can recall in no more than fifteen minutes. Tag fifteen friends, including me because I'm interested in seeing what movies my friends choose.

Here we go:
Russian: "Д`Артаньян и три мушкетера" - D'Artagnan and Three Musketeers
Ah, sweet nostalgia! : This is something from my early childhood, a wonderful Soviet take on Alexandre Dumas, père's novel. Basically, it's not a movie, but a three pieces tv mini-series, but every normal Russian would call it a movie. A whole pleiad of wonderful actors, great music, lots of humor, yet not a step away from the book.
"All for one and one for all" song

Russian: «Шерлок Холмс и доктор Ватсон» - Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson
Ones again, the awesome soviet tv series. English experts call them "the most "authentic" take on the Sherlock Holmes mysteries", mind it. Ones again, great actors - and the most wonderful music, Vladimir Dashkevich's - cinema-symphony 'Sherlock Holmes'. And not a word "not by the books".
from ""The Hound of the Baskervilles"(1981) (a deduction around Dr. Mortimer's walking stick and The Hound of the Baskervilles legend.)

Russian: "Тайна третей планеты" - Mystery of the Third Planet
A brilliant Soviet animated movie. Fantastic Peter Max-ish style, vivid colors, lovely music, great adventures. Has a wonderful feeling of the unexplored and unexpected into it, right out of a happy childhood...
Mystery of the Third Planet - a fragment"

Russian: "Игла" - The Needle
A story about a Good (tough) Guy, who was trying to save a girl (a nurse whom her co-worker Bad Doctor made a drug user), and had payed with his life for it. Starring my favorite russian rock-singer Victor Tsoi (who had died in 1990 in a car accident).
"Strange Beat Sound" - song

The Vikings (1958)
It's a classic, man! :)
The Vikings

Way of Dragon/Return of the Dragon
Bruce Lee vs. Chuck Norris!!! who can beat THAT?!;)
Return of the Dragon

Shaolin vs. Lama
An ultimate Kung Fu movie!
Shaolin vs. Lama

Jet Li. The Legend. (Fong Sai Yuk)
Great kung fu movie: martial arts, oriental humor, costumes, young jet li... And the Beauty In Red, playing a flute on the raft. When I saw her I said: "Oh, this is an exact portrait of my soul..." remember the following scene, he-he?:))))
Fong Sai Yuk

My Neighbor Totoro
I don't think that this anime movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki needs an introduction, but I think that it's a must have for every family!
Tonari no Totoro

Howl's moving castle
Another excellent Hayao Miyazaki's anime movie. Magic in work, steam-punk, true love... right... Another thing is that some aspects of Howl's personality are so much like yours truly's, that sometimes it's not even funny 8))
Hauru no Ugoku Shiro

Spirited Away
The most fantastic Miyazaki's anime movie. When I had watched it for the first time it was like one loooong deja vu with my dreams.....
Sen to Chihiro no Kamikakushi

The house of the flying daggers
A rare beauty in the north, she's the finest lady on earth... Awwwwww...
Well, it's the most sappy romantic movie on earth. Seriously. Now I can say that Takeshi Kaneshiro is one of the sexiest men living, and Andy Lau is also not bad, even though he is a bit out of my age range (but his role-Captain Leo - my fav character there, by the way - is not:)); that Wuxia genre is freakin' unbeatable (in case if you didn't get it yet:)), that "the beauty song" is a classic of chinese poetry... But the fact is that in my opinion it's the most romantic movie ever: love and death on the most beautiful background. And lots of martial arts. And Takeshi Kaneshiro...khm, guess I'd mentioned him already;)
The Beauty Dance from "House of flying daggers"

Gohatto (taboo)
Japanism ... such a sophisticated stuff!;)) Shinsengumi. Ryuhei Matsuda. Tadanobu Asano. Yaoi... errr... I mean shudo;) So many of the attractive elements. Beat Takeshi as a vice-commander (not a gangster boss) is also something to see. It's a director's (Nagisa Ōshima) movie, so it's stylish and dramatic. For some reasons Kanō Sōzaburō character reminds me of myself at the same age - 18. At some point I cut out a couple of strands on my temples so my hair would look like "youth's locks" of a japanese boy. Ones again - love and death.... yes, I prefer my romance with blood, please!>:)
Gohatto

Labitinth
My favorite fairy tale!
Labyrinth.

Addams Family
At last a normal family on the screen!:)

I got it from [livejournal.com profile] winter_warrior and translated it from Russian. An association meme.

Dunno if something could be told about a LJ user based on their userpics... what do you think about it?

I am changing my icons time to time but it looks like the general picture is always about the same. So I came up with a a userpic meme to do it ones in a while to see if something is changing or not. You are welcome to join the experiment if you want:)
So, at the moment
out of my 35 userpics:

"male" = 20
"female" =7
androgynous = 3
animals = 3(note: not a single photo of a real animal)
objects = 1
nature/scenery = 1

~~~~~~~~~
drawings/paintings = 24
photos = 11
animation = 0
with inscription =0 1

UPD: hey, I just added one with an inscription... in Hiragana:P

Association Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

[livejournal.com profile] jade_teacup gave me:

Addams Family
Amethyst
Sushi
Lonely fisherman
Japanese music


Addams Family
... is an ideal family. It's only natural, that so-called "normal" people see them as freaks: a perfection is a rare and not normal/usual thing in this world. My favorite characters are the Addams females. I've already mentioned, that they look to me like a sort of embodiments of the Triple Goddess: Maiden, Mother, and Crow.
Morticia Addams is an ideal woman, a perfect balance between sensual, and caring, motherly aspects of the female nature + [dark] beauty and wisdom. An ideal.
Addams Family (with Raul Julia and Angelica Huston) is one of my favorite family movies of all the times.

Amethyst
... used to be my favorite stone for many years. Purple is my favorite color. At some point I was wearing only amethysts. I still love this stone very much, but I rarely wear it now, preferring garnets - not because I stopped to like it, but because some deep changes in my inner energy are involved.

Sushi
Oh! I am going to make some tomorrow!:) No, really, it's my favorite food: I like the way they look, the way they taste, the way they are served, the fact, that the food has a philosophical twist, plus a rather elaborate process of preparing (I like to cook)... All and all it's an extremely tasteful and aesthetic food, and healthy, too :)

Lonely fisherman
...is a poetic image of an amazing inclusiveness. Here are: calmness and happiness of a philosopher who's not burdened by the world's many problems; and self-confidence of a person, who's able to get this catch of the ideas, concepts, and life's experience all by himself; and bitter understanding, that your tiny boat is just a toy for the waves and wind; and sadness of not having a soul to share all your emotions and experiences, for each one of us is unique and can't be completely understood by any other being... Patience, search for the eternal valuables, wisdom gathered due the hard work and simple existence... And a ton of other things that I just can not express trough the words, or just don't understand yet.

Japanese music
... mostly J-rock (also jazz, and ska). Lots of talented musicians; and those guys really work hard. A special conditions of development - kinda isolated from european and american rock by the cultural differences= sorta purer style+ unique twists. CHIBA YUSUKE!!!:)'''
I like Japanese traditional music as well, but the world's traditional music is a completely different theme.

It was stolen from [livejournal.com profile] jade_teacup

An update: actually, I was tagged (post factum:)) by [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit to do the meme. I also suppose to tag 8 people... but I won't. Though if some of you wants to do it, consider yourself tagged:)


A meme )
broom_rider: (Vagabond)
Got it from [livejournal.com profile] jade_teacup.

If you saw ME in a police car, what would you think I got arrested for? Answer me, then post to your own journal and see how many crimes you get accused of.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
А вот если бы вы вдруг увидели меня в полицейской (ментовской) машине - за что бы, вы подумали, я была арестована? Пере-запостите этот вопрос в свой журнальчег, и узнайте на какие преступления вы способны по мнению ваших френдов.
broom_rider: (Inigo)
From [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit:
When you see this, post in your own journal with your favorite quote from The Princess Bride.

"Hello. My Name Is Inigo Montoya. You Killed My Father. Prepare to Die."
"As you wish."
"Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates - Yes. - Morons!"
"I am the Dread Pirate Roberts...There will be no survivors!"
"Bye bye, boys, have fun storming the castle!..."

Yes, I am that unoriginal!:))
broom_rider: (Badass Chiba)
I had it stolen from [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit. The questions are so stupid, and so lamely formulated, that I thought that I need to do it!:)
Here I go. )
broom_rider: (Default)
A meme, that started to walk around my f-listers' journals:

Use the seven questions as below and replace the blanks with something you want to know/ask -anything you want, personal, silly, surreal or deep.

1. What do you think of _____?
2. When did you last _____?
3. _____ or _____and why?
4. What did you _____?
5. What's your favorite _____?
7. Who would you most like to _____?
broom_rider: (Default)
A meme, that I got from [livejournal.com profile] gerie_aren: you leave a comment at this post, and I give you a color. You post in your journal the meme, and four associations/memories/connections, which this color brings to you:
1 from your childhood
2 from a sphere of feelings
3 something to do with Nature
4 a random one

From [livejournal.com profile] gerie_aren I got "lilac"(or pale purple). Here I go:
1 from my childhood: The flowers in my grandparent's country house. Bizilions of them: phloxes, pansies, asters, and, of course, lilac - there was a special sort my grandparents were proud of.
2 from a sphere of feelings: it's a very interesting color, mixed of blue and red shades. The cold blue notes make it calm and self-confident, while the tint of reds/crimson give it a certain sensual note. I think, that overall meaning/feeling of the color is romantic:)
3 something to do with Nature. The colors of sunset sky.
4 a random one."Blackberry Amber" EDT by Bath and Body Works, the smell of Freesia flowers.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Новый флешмоб от [livejournal.com profile] gerie_aren: Вы отмечаетесь в комментариях, я даю вам цвет, а вы у себя в дневнике пишете про ассоциации, которые у вас с этим цветом связаны, а именно:
1. Связанную с детством
2. Связанную с чувством
3. Cвязанную с природой
4. Связанную с чем/кем угодно.

Мне достался от [livejournal.com profile] gerie_aren сиреневый
1. Из детства: цветы на даче. Всякие-разные, в огромном количестве: астры, флоксы, анютины глазки и да, сирень
2. Связанное с чувством: Сиреневый - интересный цвет, намешаный из синих и красных тонов. Синие для меня означают спокойствие, достоинство, а красные/пурпурные - чувственность. Общее значение цвета таким образом получается романтическое.
3. Cвязанное с природой: Один из цветов закатного неба
4. Связанную с чем/кем угодно: Зпапхи! EDT "Blackberry Amber" by Bath and Body Works, запах фрезий

Icon meme

Icon meme
1. Reply to this post, and I will pick four of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee. Whoo! (well, I really doubt it - broom__rider:))
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Since my f-list is small, and most of my friends know me pretty well, I got just one question from [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit, about this Photobucket one.

Well, it's just another of my japanese dolls userpics. It's a Hakata doll, portraying a Kabuki actor in a role. I love the make-up and the expression:)
broom_rider: (kilt)
The 20 questions meme from [livejournal.com profile] scowling_hermit and [livejournal.com profile] jade_teacup! Love you, guys! <3
There were some rules tagging 8 persons and stuff, but I don't bother and don't recommend to you to:)

1. You have 50 dollars in your pocket - what do you do with it?
A downtown shopping. I'd buy the ring, made out of a silver tea-spoon with a tiny rose-charm, is soooo pretty! It costs $21 The rest I'd spent for something cool for my kid, some "archeological excavation" kits, may be, he just loves to dig 'em out:)

2. What is your most guilty pleasure?
Alcohol, I guess. Though I don't feel guilty enough about it;)

3. Have you ever seen someone die?
My old cat Mittens. Also, I had seen my grandpa a few hours before his death.

4. Are you confused as to what lies ahead of you?
No. I have a bunch of the other feelings about it, though.

5. What was the last movie you saw, for pleasure, and would you recommend it?
I don't remember. How about the BBC "planet earth" series? They are really good.

6. Pants or Skirts?
Skirts! And kilts!:))

7. If the person you like does not accept you, would you continue to wait for them to change their feelings?
Screw the moron. He has a bad taste;)

8. If the person you secretly like is already attached, what would you do?
I'd [try to] have him, anyway. Unless I really like his "attachment".

9. Is there anything that has made you unhappy recently?
Krrrrrrrrrr... do you have time to listen?

10. If you could have chosen at birth whether to be a boy or a girl, which would you be?
A boy, most likely... though it's a good thing, that we can't choose:)

11. Which of the 7 Deadly Sins do you think you relate to the most and why?
Oh... there's just seven, huh?:) Okay, my best friends always were: Superbia (Pride), Luxuria (Lust, but more correctly Extravagance), Acedia (Sloth), and, of course, Ira (Wrath).

12.Thunderstorms - cool or scary?
Cool, of course. Beautiful, too.

13.Clinton or Obama?
It's fuckin' reminds me this Gorbachev's time joke, in which the next the candidates for the White House were a woman, a black guy, and a homosexual:))
-Hillary, if I could vote.

14. Would you rather be a really good person or a really interesting person?
To be a dull, but "a good" person? are you kidding?

15. Do you believe in some form of life after death?
I believe in (a kind of ) of immortality of a soul, yes.

16. Which fictional character could you most see yourself marrying?
I am married, you know. And I am fine with it.
But...a fictional character, huh? It'd mean to clip off his wings, whoever he is, no? No good. But wait, there was one - Volkodav, an overly-noble Russian-style "Connan the barbarian". He had such a cozy vision of the ideal family life, but his reality kept bringing him instead one challenge after another.

17. Best sex: rough and fast or slow and tender?
I am an impatient person, so... rough and fast to begin with, then slow and tender ;)

18. Do you have a motto? If yes which one?
Nope. But the words, that I always remember are: "This too shall pass".

19. What type of friends do you have
- All kinds. I am more in contact with my online friends, though.

20. What place most speaks to you?
Upper West Side, Manhattan, NYC. Central Park,Manhattan, NYC.
Also, Rocky Mountains National Park, CO
