Russian Space Shuttle

Just yesterday, June 2, 2015, was 60 years old cradle of world space and the largest domestic space harbor - Baikonur Cosmodrome. Over the years, its territory has been tested many different spacecraft, the apex of which was the system of "Energy-Buran". But history has chosen its path and the project died in infancy. More than two decades ago, the last time to close heavy sliding doors MKS - installation and filling of the complex, cut off from the alluring star sky two orbiting spacecraft. There is an easy irony that the birthplace of those who had to surf the cosmic expanses, it was the burial place and a crypt.

Club Petrovich Moscow

Club Petrovich - Петровичи и Петровны

From: http://www.club-petrovich.ru/eng/

History of the Club

Who is “Petrovich”?

The concept of club is based on the figure of main hero of Andrey Bilzho’s drawings from “Kommersant” magazine – Petrovich, and the main point of its corporate identity became ironic nostalgia for good old soviet times, for our common past. You can see everyday items of that times in the interior of the club (presents of club’s members), “soviet” style art-objects. Meal from our childhood well-known to everyone is served on plates and dishes decorated with Bilzho’s drawings. The atmosphere is absolutely peculiar here – it is domestic, cozy, filled with sense of humor. At the same time the “Petrovich” club is a museum, restaurant and… house, where you want to return.

The way it all started

A dirty rag sitting on a pipe, no toilet seat, no hot water, empty soap, not even a paper HOLDER let alone paper... No garbage can. No space to turn around. ADA accessible - are you insane???

Everythoing you see is sbout fighting.... Kickboxing and martial arts, otherwise it's cheezey soap operas aboput generals and other military figures. Even comedy/skit shows use military-unifimed people as characters... And all docvumentaries about wars and killing and tanks and missles...

Eating - sitting - eating - drinking - talking about eating - going to buy food - eating - drinking - eating - sleeping

Food is sour - unregulated - water in rusty tanks to delivery stations - milk in bags... Handling food by hand - no bathrooms, even in malls (or you have to pay to use them - it was "bought")

People wearijng masks - pollution - terrible emissions from shitty cars...
