“The dance floor is supposed to be somewhere you can just let yourself go and just really flaunt it out, sleaze it out, filth it out, dirt it out, just get down and enjoy. What is really, really important for me is to get the dance floor sexy and to get it filthed up.” – “Let’s have a party.”(Metro Mix Radio interview)

A disc jockey, also known as DJ (or deejay), is a person who selects and plays recorded music for an audience. There are several types of DJs, for example Radio and Club, but the most well-known and popular are Hip Hop DJs, who choose and play music using various turntables (often to back up one or more MCs) and do turntable scratching to produce shaking sounds.

People in Russia like holidays and there are numerous occasions to celebrate. But there are festivals that have national meaning and are celebrated in all the corners of the country. AT first the International Women’s Day was a political event in the Soviet Union, but these days it is focused on femininity, motherhood, gorgeousness and spring.

“Religion is to do right. It is to love, it is to serve, it is to think, it is to be humble.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

The Russian Orthodox Church has a thousand-year history and is traced to the time of Kievan Rus. It has strong spiritual and political influence over the Russian citizens. In the times of the Soviet Union Orthodox Church, as well as religion in general, was forbidden. But after the demise of the USSR, the church quickly regained its influence in the early 1990s. Nowadays the majority of Russian people try to keep and follow numerous religious customs and traditions. And Great Fasting is one of the most important of them. Each year it starts on different date, everything depends on the date of the Easter. Great Fast lasts for 40 days and includes restrictions on food, entertainments, sex and any kind of pleasure-seeking. The last week of the Fast is called the Holy Week and is the strictest. For believers fasting isn’t a way to earn some “points” or salvation; it is an exercise in self-sacrifice and Christian obedience that helps to clear soul and to rid passions. Read more

“I have an idea that the phrase “weaker sex” was coined by some woman to disarm some man she was preparing to overwhelm.” – Ogden Nash
