Travel Tuesday: Temple of Christ the Savior

download

Here’s today’s travel pic, The Temple of Christ the Savior in Moscow, Russia. Not sure if I’ll ever make it to Russia, we’ll see.

The Cathedral of Christ the Savior (Russian: Храм Христа Спасителя, Khram Khrista Spasitelya) is a Russian Orthodox cathedral in Moscow, Russia, on the northern bank of the Moskva River, a few hundred meters southwest of the Kremlin. With an overall height of 103 meters (338 ft), it is the tallest Orthodox Christian church in the world.

The current church is the second to stand on this site. The original church, built during the 19th century, took more than 40 years to build and was the scene of the 1882 world premiere of the 1812 Overture composed by Tchaikovsky. It was destroyed in 1931 on the order of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. The demolition was supposed to make way for a colossal Palace of the Soviets to house the country’s legislature, the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. Construction started in 1937 but was halted in 1941 when Germany invaded the Soviet Union during World War II. Its steel frame was disassembled the following year, and the Palace was never built. Following the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the current church was rebuilt on the site between 1995 and 2000.

Have a good one!

Black Barbie Chronicles: Your Rights in Korea

you-gotta-fight-for-your-right-to-parrrrrrrty

This here is an example and a cautionary tale to my Fellow Americans. When you leave the safety of America Land, all bets are off!  That pretty blue passport will not save your happy ass overseas!  However, it is nice to get out of your country and experience what the world has to offer!  Anywho, please enjoy this here little tidbit.  Have a good one!

Your Rights Are What Korea Say They Are

Don’t’ start nothing, won’t’ be nothing. Remember that little piece of advice? Well, that goes far in Korea. DO. NOT. FIGHT. IN. KOREA!!!! You may thin your ass can cash that check, but trust me, if you are not Korean, then you do not have the complexion for the protection for the collection. Korea will deport your ass quicker than Our Glorious Leader (Trump) would deport a brown man. It does not matter if you well within your rights to protect yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re the victim. If the other side of the offending party is Korean, you are wrong.

There was something a few weeks ago about a Westerner who lived in Korea for a good 10 years. Hell, he even settled down, married a Korean woman, paid taxes, and had kids. This man was the victim of a hate crime. Some older Korean man verbally and physically assaulted him in the streets. This guy was wise and didn’t try and defend himself. However, guess what, he still got fucked! The other party filed a complaint against the victim! Get this shit; the police then told the foreign guy that they were filing charges on him for the ordeal. I mean, what the hell Korea? Even when you try to do the right thing you get screwed!

I can’t begin to tell you how shocking this was to me. What I got out of this is that in Korea, if another Korean doesn’t like you, there is not a damn thing you can do about it. If someone hits you, you’re screwed. If they spit on you, you’re screwed. If they push you, you’re screwed.  Now  I am quite sure some of my Texas people are thinking, ” I wish a mother would.”

Well, that’s what would happen in America Land. Here in Korea Land, that shit doesn’t work. People forget when living and working in another country; this is not your home. Your host country does not abide by the same laws you are accustomed to. Baby, this ain’t your home; you’re in someone else’s house now, and you need to abide by the rules of the house.

I was raised with the idea of when someone hits you; you hit them back. Here, you can’t do that. Now, you need to be like Jesus and turn the other cheek, and trust fam, that shit is hard! So the next time you’re in a club here in Korea and some girl pushes you and laugh (yep that happened to me), you just need to find Jesus and forgive the ignorant fuckers. Or, you could bide your time, wait until the bitch gets drunk and then push her down a flight of stairs. I kid! Or do I?

Noir Saturday: The Tattotted Stranger

Here’s tonight’s offering, The Tattotted Stranger.

tat

The Tattooed Stranger is a 1950 American crime film noir shot on location in New York City, directed by Edward Montagne, and starring John Miles, Patricia Barry, Walter Kinsella and Frank Tweddell. The picture was one of the first films featuring Jack Lord, who went on to star in the television series Hawaii Five-O. It was John Miles’ final film appearance.

A man strolling in Central Park finds a ladies’ glove on the dog walk. He spots a woman reclining in a nearby sedan and approaches to ask if it belongs to her. The problem is she can’t answer — she’s dead of a shotgun blast to the gut. The shocked man blares away with the car’s horn to attract the nearest cop (one is actually nearby). Thus begins 19050’s The Tattooed Stranger, a low budget (but shot on location) police procedural that comes two years on the heels of the incredibly successful The Naked City. Although the film is limited in some ways by its ultra-low budget, it remains of interest today because of its honest and unflinching depiction the New York City slums, and the matter-of-fact cynicism of the cops who work them.

Check it out tonight @ 11PM on TCM CST or 9AM CST on Sunday. Enjoy and check out the trailer.

Erotic Fridays: Sexy, thy name is Shakespeare

856120258_87375401ee_z

 

 

Sonnet 1

From fairest creatures we desire increase,

That thereby beauty’s rose might never die,

But as the riper should by time decease,

His tender heir might bear his memory;

But thou, contracted to thine own bright eyes,

Feed’st thy light’s flame with self-substantial fuel,

Making a famine where abundance lies,

Thyself thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel.

Thou that art now the world’s fresh ornament

And only herald to the gaudy spring

Within thine own bud buriest thy content,

And, tender churl, mak’st waste in niggarding.

Pity the world, or else this glutton be,

To eat the world’s due, by the grave and thee.
