A good friend of mine, Wolfram Schlich from Germany, who coincidentally
is also a web master at the centericq.de site, recently got me addicted
to another amusing thing in the cyber-culture. It's difficult to be
given an exact definition, but I'll try to explain what it is. Some guys
have created a flash
after an old computer game. In the cartoon there is an alien
who's speaking to a spaceship crew in a typical action movie like
manner. Both sides exchange phrases in a twised variant of English (exactly
like the one this news item is written in :). Probably it's kinda joke
with messages from the original game, cannot say exactly. Anyway, twised
English of the phrases makes them easy to remember and funny. Then,
surrounded by jolly music with repeating words from the dialog a whole
lot of buildings, cars, and various other things are shown. On each of
the things there is the same phrase written "ALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO
US". Difficult to explain indeed why it's so funny. What I'm fully
concerned about, is that the guys who made it were really sick :) And I
Other sick guys are the Moldavian "Zdob si Zdub"
band that makes
fun of everything, just like their Ukrainian colleagues from "Vopli
Vidoplyasova". Recently they released a video for the "Tsigani si OZN"
(Gipsies and UFO) song, which is shown daily on the Romanian musical
channel. Worth watching indeed.
Finally, cannot help sharing with you this link
to the audio
record of one of the recent Zadornov's concerts. Mikhail Zadornov is a
famous Russian humourist. The file size is about 20 megs and something,
and it's strongly recommended to everyone who can understand Russian.
