I almost never do reviews of Russian movies, but this one should be an exception.
After watching Shapito Show i was quite surprised to see how much efforts was invested. [Sergey Loban]
is an author of very experimental [Dust]
, which was released previously to Shapito Show. Shapito brings more artistic value and a lot of joy to watch, because of it’s own unpredictability of events. Film consist of four stories, which are happening at the same time and divided into two parts for better watching experience.
One more S.T.A.L.K.E.R. posting if you don’t mind.
Mods and [modern versions]
are nice, but classic [Stalker series]
shouldn’t be forgotten too. Here is a list of classic games.
[Shadow of Chernobyl]
► original first version of Stalker game series [the most atmospheric & my favorite one] [Clear Sky]
► prequel to Shadow of Chernobyl [Call of Pripyat]
► sequel to Shadow of Chernobyl Vivid table, which conveniently represents games from the most buggy to the less buggy.
As a big fan of [Stalker series]
i can’t afford myself to skip such title as [Stalker: Update]
It is Russian actively developed ambitious remake of classic [Stalker]
based upon modern [OGSR]
modification with many substantial changes like:
vastly improved graphics quality incredible weather system [summer/autumn/winter] fine-tuning of game balance more detailed models and items remastered audio and much, much more It is almost one-man-project, so please be patient.
The rocket is striving into the darkness of grace We are no longer among those who is worthy of Earth The photon bird can scatter us into the space And rip us out of the loop of rebirth for good berth
Forget everything what you have chance to know nowaday Leave that garbage to those who have lost their minds We’ll braid a strand in the milky way With the threads of lives our love’s names

If you like pixel art quests and [cyberpunk]
atmosphere here is a good suggestion: [Technobabylon]
. Game is published by Wadjet Eye Games previously known for brilliant [Gemini Rue]
. In brief: detailed dialogue lines, immersive atmosphere, cool design aesthetics.
Music composer is Nathan Allen Pinard, who is also known for immersive soundtrack for Gemini Rue. So you won’t be disappointed in terms of musical vibes. I think that 50% of game’s atmospere comes from music.
is the best soviet Sci-Fi movie produced by [Andei Tarkovsky]
. It often counts as direct answer to beautiful and timeless [2001: A Space Odyssey]
by [Stanley Kubrick]
. Although Solaris had far less budget it surely provides plenty of food to the grey matter. Moreover, movie goes even deeper in philosophical aspects than Space Odyssey. So, the film is for those of you who like to think things over.
Right after [Windows 7 reached end of life]
in regards to non-pos esu updates i asked myself: “How can i improve security of ageing operating system?” Replacement of basic internal firewall comes back to mind in the very first place.
After some comprehensive research i ended up with [Outpost Firewall Pro]
, developed by [Agnitum]
a small Russian company, which was acquired by crappy yandex later on. Software was dismissed after purchase immediately.
Just trying to get a grip on reality a bit longer.

that shows corruption and stupidness of top-end bureaucrats, repressing KGB actions and lying propaganda statistics. Films also expose true and forgotten heroes of the time. It also features:
realistic narration very solid acting atmospheric ambient soundtrack ENTRANCE QUOTE FROM THE FIRST EPISODE
War is peace.
Freedom is slavery.
Ignorance is strength. Nineteen Eighty-Four, also known as 1984, is a 1984 British dystopian science fiction film written and directed by Michael Radford, based upon George Orwell’s 1949 novel of the same name.
Film follows the life of Winston Smith, a low-ranking civil servant in a war-torn London ruled by Oceania, a totalitarian superstate.
Smith struggles to maintain his sanity and his grip on reality as the regime’s overwhelming power and influence persecutes individualism and individual thinking on both a political and personal level.
is a person who curated music selection for Russian literary radio show [Model Dlia Sborki]
[MDS]. It was aired on 106.8 FM in mid 90s. The concept of the show was reading SciFi stories, which were backed with modern electronic music. Music styles revolved from ambient-trance to trip-hop. DJ Incognito always provided unique’n’immersive atmosphere to the show. It’s a pity that he is no longer in project anymore.

The whole concept of blog was non-political information and entertainment.

was very talented person, who can do pop, rock, reggae, ballad or even rap at the same time. And the most important part is that texts of the songs were historically and politically correct and full of life experience.
His art was relevant not only in 90s, but in 2022 also. His contributions becoming even more urgent, especially considering recent “activities” of main senile and quite insane statesman of Russia.

Degenerative totalitarian regime in Russia just made [another pathetic attempt]
to block TOR network. In previous try they’ve blocked only TCP datagrams. And now, it looks like that they have added UDP and ICMP to banned list also.
If you experience difficulties in connecting to TOR network using bundled bridges like meek-azure, snowflake and obfs4 try these one:
