Mystery of Russian Soul on the Big Screen

New directory from film-north "KINO" -- Russian Hollywood : century 21. You do not need to know Russian to see what on their mind. They show their dreams -- for themselves, for all to watch.

Should we consider filmmaking in Russia as "Russian Cinema" vs. Soviet (20th century)?

I make/made more for Russia by not being in Russia.
Look at the changes in Moscow after I left it.
Russia is better without me.
Or because it changed its ways "shocked" my rejection? :)
Too bad, it's too late, mother.
And not radical enough, father.
I still do not want to be your comrade, brothers and sisters.
Not Soviet, nor Russian.
And you are not ready to be humans.
Well, perhaps, never you will be ready.
I will never know, because mortals die.
I lost interest in future, never mind, the past.

[ a note for my Russian Diary ]

Tuesday, September 04, 2007

I do not know where this note belongs; somehere in Antohins. The pages I was supposed to work on this summer. My Russian Pages...
Simple questions. One of them:
So, it wasn't the system or sensorship...
why don't you tell it?
You are still here, not in Moscow.
Thanks a lot, one cannot hide behind the stupid formula "in search of freedom of artistict expression". (The reason for my defection I had to write on advice of the little CIA officer in Rome, when after many hours of my explainations, they still asked -- why do I want to leave Russia?)

I do not know which blow is harsher -- the first, that you have to leave, or, the second, the realization that you cannot come back.
Well, I am more than a Russian, for one. I cannot be consumed by "being Russian", I am a human.
I want to write in Russian because it's beautiful, not because I have to. ... Do I feel more Russian in US than in Moscow? ... Are you saying that you can't be "human" in Russia? Don't be rediculous! Read Max Stirner. I can't be own even by my own Self. I am weak. It's difficult for me to be good. It's easy for me to become corrupt, I know that. Especially in nowaday Russia, more cynical than ever. Perhaps, the most cynical place in time today.
"Where is he from? Dante - must be from Italy, I am not sure..."
I do not have time to open "Russian Being" chapter in Father-Russia and check what I was writing there...
I guess, I was traumatized by the adaptation I wrote in 1975 "We, the Russian People" -- ...

I feel that I record after Guildenstern, the book (thoughts) he writes for Rosencratz... In Postmodern Zone characters do not search for authors, they creat them.
Shakespeare is more fiction than Hamlet (according to Stoppard) -- and I know more about Ros and Guil more than I know about Tom Stoppard.
Theatre is what cannot be translated -- like dreams. At least, PoMo theatre.
Well, art shouldn't be translated; it must be created ANEW. Personal, yours.
I try to keep all historical (factual) info at --PostMo ...

600 Files : idiotopedia

or Language of Angels : a book Guildernstein write for his best friend Rosencratz to read after their death. Stoppard

Maybe this directory '600" was waiting so many years for a writer... and a reader.

It got them : pre-production period of the Theatre UAF Spring 2008 -- the characters do not search for an author anymore. They use "MySpace.Dot.Com" -- where characters write and read each other.

... using cell-phones.

Oh, it must be!

The sunset of the West is the surise of the Global. One language, one feeling, one thought. From many into one!

We call it "multiculturalism" of hubugs.

Yes, now we can speak by exchanging things (Hello, Gulliver), or pix of them (digital images).

My cat is a writer, she looks at me!

At It...

"3sis07" -- second life of Three Sisters?...
details are at -- my theatre blog.
I am in the "Chekhov's mood", I record, and I do not want comment on 2007 and what I see.
Special, almost non-Russian brand of existentialism. "Russian writer" is supposed to react, to sufffer, to cry, to preach... He always was with the heart of playwright, I show you, my stage directions are not read by actors... Why would you need to know what I think?
I don't believe you want to know...
Chekhov is a man of "Russia After Slavery" (post-1861), post-Soviet Russia in some sense... And what do you see in "free" country?
One would expect that everybody will be Dante, or Pushkin, at least, but -- no! "Free serfs" do not write or even read. They "live"! They enjoy living Americana style. Then and now. Relax, Antosha, have a hot dog, sweet prince.
Common place?
Too many people to talk about life and death, Prince Hamlet is Dead, Mr. Stoppard.
Why should I cry over them, who do not cry over their empty lives?
They need a doctor, not a wiseman.
Okey, doctor, you can write your stories. For yourself. And the like-you.
I have news for you, mister. Chekhovs died very much the same way as the rest of us.
What did you write, sir?
The Three Sisters?
Never heard.
I, write, too. Just finished writing one very important memo.
So, what is your story about? About the three chicks. Good title for a porno movie.
Take off your glasses, my dear writer. Why do you have them on all the time, on every photo? There is nothing new to see. Same-o, same-o... Yes, I am talking about life 100 years after your death, a century later! No, Dante, no a single one, but everybody is writing. They read only each other, it's recording their phone conversations. Thanks to you, our literature is a small talk, shows about nothing...
BTW, thanks.
I know what to expect.
There are a lot of people who lived and died without reading Chekhov. There will be more of them (they are not born yet). Billions!
As if you never existed.
Do you remember your grandfather, anton, yes, the one who bought his freedom?
What did he do with it?
Open a shop?
Pss, I won't talk about it.
Another name for mediocracy.
You are a doctor, you know this disease, the being healthy.
-- Where do I put this my note on Chekhov?

Remembering Self

I know I'm wrong.

I know I'm right.

 She is my wife, this woman in white.

She crosses the street,

She walks away,

She is on her own...

Look at me! Hey!

I must be dreaming, I must be mad -

This woman is leaving! Please, wait! ...

I'm trembling, not yet, please, not yet...

I know this city, I know this street,

This corner, this woman, This tree...

It is me... at the corner, old tree...

It's cold, she is gone, I am done...

My leaves... getting dry, getting grey

My heart... Down Falling... Too late.

I lost. I am here. Silently brave...

 A tree is a tree.

Like a stellar above my own grave.

It was written many years ago. At the times when I believe that it possible for me to write a book, fiction, it was before I became webmaster.

No, I don't remember it. I simply know that it was me.

No, not me, somebody else.

* from webmaster2.0
I don not use "webpages about webpages" directorieies : NTL, before my summer is over, I went back to (webmaster1.0) -- to mark (summary) of my WEB2.0 move.

Anatoly-Web (before 2007), webmaster1.0 -- mostly about technical aspects of webbing.
Webmaster2.0 -- philosophy. (At least, it was started this way -- "Beyond Stage", "enotes" and etc.)
"Webman's Diary" (Dostoevsky) is an outdated concept. And I won't get use to blogging...

MY Webpages are the workplace for me. I work on...

"Private in Public" (Stanislavsky about nature of theatre) : that's my method.

*** Important:
how to arrange my workshop for making CD?

* WRITE notebook (google) -- trying to be smart. [ use Reader/Shared Items code to embed into webpages! ]

Notebook (or even scrapbook) style :

rework pages -- ... write2.0 ?

Read/Write concept

"2007" + "new" + "notes" in every directory to update! -- "Stared Items"?

Start with "0" pages!

"techo-writer" [ anatolant ]

Tuesday, July 24, 2007

... -- new, including "add co-author" function?! "Community members"...

Man can't learn to think without men, but looks like now one cannot even write alone.

Am I writing? I am typing.
I am "making" pages! "Pagemaker" -- great!
Page-Master, what can I hope for? Texts, not stories. Never mind, novels.
You do not read books, Anatoly.
Anatoly XXI scans books...

It would be nice to write three lines of poetry...

2007 - logos:

Ethiopian Millennium

Utopia Project








Best Average


Next summer -- it would be late to write about elections. Even in USA. Never mind, Russia.
So, 2007 [Personal Politics] is a part of the Ethiopian Millennium Year Project?

Well, "democracy" is elections of the best from the average.

The best, which is not "different"! "Russia After Putin" and "America After Bush" -- ?
Changes? What changes?

* Point #2.
Technology is Politics

"Leaders"? Who needs them anymore?
The Average (Man) has to go through changes dictated by IT, web and the rest of yahoo googles -- "Life-long-learning" and "Self-educations" is for all, not for De Vinci only.

"Average Genius" -- another paradox?

Well, I rest my case.

Social Anatoly ( or anatolant (?) will be working on Utopia Project in stages :
* semiotics of politics
* Winter and Summer Fools (engl. editions?)
* Visual PoMo

From Book of Fool,us

Updating American Book

I was writing "Post-AmeriKa" ... and now I want to defend her. I am a muture American, this Fall I will be 27 (I defected in 1980).

I do not hear voices of non-Americans who can see beyond the news from Iraq.

Maybe, in "America 2.0"
or perhaps, in "Winter Fool" [ru] ...

Only if the summer won't be gone doing webpages.

I am still writing one book "Self".

Saturday, June 23, 2007

Youtube Time! What writing? Why write, why even speak, when you can show? ...
And what about the invisible, about my soul?
... well, film art. Like music, no thoughts, just feeling... like saying "you know what I mean".

web-writer, I script "pages" (screenplay), points -- you write, you finish, you are the USER!
Sounds as if I am writing an instruction how to put together a bookshelf from the box.
Ten years ago I was thinking about it, and I was thinking that it's not about me, about "them"...
... Why pretend?
Book of Job -- who wrote it? Happy End -- for readers.
Why bother, Job? Give it up, man!
Yahoo -- oh, I'm used to the name by now. "Google"? "Google you, youtube!"
Give up, anatolant.
I thought you are dead.
