экспериментальная рок-звезда

At The Time I Wrote This, I was Studying Russian

I started studying Russian in middle school, because the women are gorgeous and I stumbled across a lot of Russian pop on YouTube. I went through a long Russian pop phase and I still listen to some Russian & Ukrainian pop today. These eastern European styles have a lot of roots in classical music and they kept many of the best elements of 90s pop during the early 2000s. I also think that the instrumentation from their folk music is a great addition to the style.

What is экспериментальная рок-звезда About?

Well the name is basically two words:

экспериментальная = Experimental

рок-звезда = rock-star

I wrote this song about me, because I am experimental. My Russian is not amazing, so I am expressing who I am primarily in present tense using simple phrases. I may write more Russian songs in the future, but there are still some political tensions, so I am going to wait for a while before working on it. I will need to focus on my English content first, because that is what will catch on before I can expand in such a huge way. If you don’t speak Russian, you can use google translate on any page of this site. It is in the sidebar on blog posts (possibly the bottom of the page on mobile). In Portuguese I speak better, so I use more slang (girias) and it doesn’t translate well, but most other languages should translate perfectly.

I Have Always Had a Passion For Learning Languages

I am a polyglot, partially because I studied it in school, but mostly because I studied hard enough to internalize it in my free time. Russian is a language that I loved the language enough to memorize basic phrases and the alphabet, well in advance of ever taking an introductory class. I don’t consider myself fully fluent in Russian but I understand many of the basic phrases. If you can’t tell already by the randomness of everything I have on the internet, I get bored pretty easily and I tend to switch languages a little too often too.

Russians Are Actually Really Cool

When it comes to politics, the last presidential election between Trump and Clinton had a lot of attacks on Russian people. They used the country as a premise for nuclear war when Russia really wasn’t threatening the U.S. at all. You can even hear their politicians stating this in speeches, but they still took the threats seriously and started doing nuclear drills to evacuate a majority of Moscow and St. Petersburg (note: I wish my government had functional nuclear bunkers, instead of decaying cold war buildings, that mostly have restricted access nowadays).

Russia is actually a very advanced society that is very similar to The U.S.A.. There are still internal issues, but that is inherent in any political system. They are founded on a tradition of nobility and concepts of equality that very closely mirror most other European sovereignties, but it’s up to your personal interpretation, whether or not Russia implements all of these forms of equality. I am not here to judge though, because that would also require a lot of self-reflection that most people aren’t ready for, so I won’t get into any of that.

Without the Need For A Political Enemy, We Are Mostly The Same

I have dated Russians and also been to parties where everyone was Russian. I went to college in Boston, which has a very large Russian population and my school also has one of the biggest demographics of international students. I had more than a few Russian friends in college (disclaimer: don’t you dare blame me for political outcomes in the USA) and they helped me to improve my speaking and my Russian cursive. I only took one Russian class, but I have an appreciation for many aspects of the culture. Most of the Russians I knew were surprised that I had a genuine interest in their culture and they would always ask me why, to which I would reply – I like Russian pop. Then they would laugh because the music that got me into Russian was mostly girl bands. 😅

В Техасе, мы любым водку – In Texas, We Love Vodka

If you are Russian, there are a lot of similarities with Texas. In Austin, we have a local brand of vodka called Titos that is made from corn. It is very smooth and you would love it. This is a lyric that I included in the song to help everyone understand that we are more similar than we are different. I mostly talk about myself in this song, because that is all the Russian I was able to speak. I am also thankful for the edits my friend in Kazakhstan made to my grammar. This took me a lot of tries to read all the way through, because it was quite fast and y’all have such strong R’s. That’s also one of my favorite things about the Russian language though.
