    Yes, very cool indeed.

    Great city shots.

    WOW! Those are REAL Russian babes, not like those from the catalogs in Petrograd!

    Keeping the good stuff for the home market of course....:D

    Wasn't that music also used in the movie "Eyes wide shut" ?

    Do you guys know any USA's bitched classical composers, just some others than Madonna and Frank Sinatra?

    PS.How does it feel to finally dig your own head out of your smelly wide arse.

    Well.... let's see now... I know they are not as classical or talented as The Leningrad Cowboys but how about:

    Scott Joplin, George Whitefield Chadwick, Amy Beach, Edward MacDowell, Horatio Parker, Joshua Rifkin, William Bolcom,George Gershwin,Aaron Copland, Roy Harris, Elmer Bernstein, William Schuman, David Diamond, Elie Siegmeister, Charles Ives, George Antheil, John Cage and Henry Cowell, Philip Glass, John Mitchell, Leonard Bernstein .......
    ...... to name a few.

    Before engaging is such insults perhaps you should remove your foot from your mouth as to ease the withdrawal of your cranium from you colon in a more pleasant manner.


    :D

    well don't forget their history only goes back 300 years or so, and they weren't exactly focused on arts at that stage

    Well...we got Jean Sibelius late 1800's to mid 1900's... and nowdays a few internationally famous ones...

    Are there any of these great classical composers from your home country?

    Which one you mean? Was bach from Germany? Or Mozart?
    (Austria AFAIR..) At least, As I've red, The Great Adolf Hitler's favourite composer was Jean Sibelius, which is a thing that we finns don't fancy much.But, well at least considering your attitude and approach to this conversation tells me that you might be a carrier of those weird genes which your former fuhrer had? ;)

    @Grobar

    What does this mean? : Пловдив, Тракия, България
    Sorry my miss of grammar :(

    When I'm truly angry, you can usually notice by the lack of these guys --> :p in my posts. That and I tend to slip into a somewhat more snappy tone.
    At the moment, I'm chilled as heck ... duuuude. Why would I get wound up over people discussing composers on a forum?
