    Well, that is good. Sorry for going off on LVM like that, I just think he is such a sleazy, callous person (even Hayek and Friedman, dicks that they were, backed a rudimentary welfare state).

    Well I'm a full blown Marxist so I'm not exactly going to protect the shit. I was just adding that since I also don't have some weird worship of Keynes.:p

    Though

    As my brother (an admirer of God-Emperor and a fighter against the forces of Warp) says - burn heresy!XDXD
    Joke - I'm disbelieving in the gods (especially if they are not the embodiment of beauty and spiritual perfection). And this is again a joke - a person must be the embodiment of physical and spiritual perfection. And I'm serious.

    1963 (comics)

    1963 is a 1993-1994 American independent comic written by Alan Moore, and drawn and colored by various artists, including Rich Veitch, Dave Gibbons, and Steve Bissette, published by the Image Comics Cooperative.

    The comic is an homage to the Marvel heroes of the early 1960's, and features analogues to those heroes. It satirizes the atomic age, early Second Cultural Revolution era they originated. As such, it contains various attitudes common to that era, including blatant socialist propaganda,a focus on social realist science fiction and radiation as the source of the powers, and stereotypical fascist or capitalist villains. Moore himself appears in the letter columns as "Al Moore", an amalgamation of jaunty editors like Stan Lee and Bill Gaines, commenting on fake letters. Occasionally, Ed King and Harry Hanover (ersatz versions of artists like Jack Kirby and Wally Wood) also make appearances.

    The following heroes appear in each issue of the comic:

    The Mystery Co-op- an ersatz version of the Fantastic Four, starring Russian scientist Anatoly Tolstoy , his American companion Jerry Giovanni, their military attache Sally Catalan, and her younger prodigy sister Jane. They were attempting to mount an expedition on behalf of the state to the mysterious "N-Dimension", when the portal malfunctioned, and they were forced to abort. The leftover radiation gave them all strange superpowers. Tolstoy can now inflate various parts of his body to large proportions, Giovanni is now a being of pure energy, Catalan becomes a large green creature (at will), and Jane become invincible. They use these powers on various scientific adventures, and improve human society to "statelessness". The issue revolves around a mysterious felon who kidnaps Giovanni, and reroutes the N-Portal, forcing the MC to traverse the multiverse.

    The Mantis/Mr. Lightning- Featured in a comic called "The Call of the Courageous" (a reference to R&B's The Brave and the Bold), the two titular heroes (one a Spider-Man/Daredevil analgoue given powers by an accident involving a praying manits and a laser experiment; the other a Flash parody,given power through radiation at a power plant) teaming up to fight the "Reptilian". This story parodies the urban heroes of R&B/Marvel, who mostly emphasized helping their community and encouraging social action within the city. It even features an appearance by the Young Pioneers.

    UASR- Standing for Ultimate American Special Revolutionary , this hero is both a Captain America parody and an homage to the African heroes of the ANCC. UASR is a representation of the spirit of American socialism, passed down through various names "from Richard Owen to John Brown to Eugene Debs", and has now been passed down to Stan Jameson, an African, and former associate of the 30's hero "The Mad Raven" (an analogue of "Killer Crow"), who took the title after the previous UASR (who got that particular name while working for foreign intelligence) died. Indeed, the more violent, overly political tone is more representative of Killer Crow and other ANCC books. It revolves around UASR fighting "The Red Brain," a Nazi baron leading a secret organization in Brazil, while reminiscing on his time with the Mad Raven.

    Amazona- A Wonder Woman analogue, from an primitive communist island populated by superpowered women, who comes to help the spread of socialism to the world of men. Standard story centering around her fighting against a large Greek monster.

    The Hypernaut Corps. - A mix of the Iron Man and Green Lantern Corps, revolves around the Earth Hypernaut fighting against "a creature from the fourth dimension," while trying to figure out interdimensional troubles.

    A-Man- Analogue of the Atom, though with more intelligence. Has him go to investigate "dimensional ripples", and him doing battle with British villain "The Gargoyle", who speaks in a stereotypical aristocratic voice and making comments about the "preservation of white civilization."

    Krishna and the Falco-Men- Another Call of the Courageous book, this time dealing with Krishna (a Thor/Dr. Droom mix, who deals in the eastern philosophy of latter) and the Falco-Men (parodies of Hawkman and Hawkwoman), who battle a demon coming from the "Bardo".

    The Tomorrow Syndicate- A team-up of all the previous heroes, with the Hypnotic Man (Dr. Midnite) and the Gammas (Ant-Man and Wasp) joining in, as they help Mystery Co-op find Giovanni through the multiverse.

    I study Soviet Production Films. I got one comedy - "Unattainable".
    The plot is as follows: two parasites corrupting the performance of their brigade are given to re-educate a young girl (the film was similarly mentioned in a fan story, it was only a sexual comedy:closedtongue:). Having worn out with them, she decides on the trick - hints at what they like her. And it's understandable that the appearance of a female between two males ... sees paradoxical situations.
    Is it possible the appearance of such a plot in Soviet America?


    I found some more information ...
    This applies to Lyudmila Zhivkova. Although her career is an example of cum, she turned out to be a surprisingly sensible employee. True, she was fond of Agni Yoga ... Do not blame her for espionage?

    Are you implying John Maynard Keynes isn't the embodiment of beauty and spiritual perfection?

    So Regarding Entertainment.....

    I'm hoping that the UASR will get off its ass and create Theaters that actually make the experience enjoyable. Seriously, the theaters they have today are cramped, hot, and stuffy as shit, and they only exist because of the history and the acoustics behind them.

    A public works project, with a large theater with food and drink on site, and Comfortable Seating would be awesome.

    With cars being less of an important part of the American culture, I sort of thought of just outdoor theaters (people bringing towels and food to an impromptu screen) would be the replacement.

    Mea Culpa, I meant live theater.

    That does sound kinda fun though, like a less motorized version of a drive in.

    Speaking of that, I get this feeling that the modern day UASR citizen's mindset has almost a 1950's mindset of nostalgic prosperity and I think that's kinda cool, especially since this day and age is incredibly nihilistic.

    So everything is bad? We do not have any problems with the chairs (Well, except in Kolyada, but this, as my former teacher in literature expresses, is a garbage dump).

    You ever been to those Shakespeare plays in Central Park? I could see that whole "free outdoor theater for the people" setup becoming popular.

    Nope, I haven't. I might go though. The lady is a fan of the theater.

    So much so, that for her birthday I took her to go see Something Rotten On Broadway. Do you have any idea of how much that shit cost?

    I personally thought it kinda sucked, but... Well.... I've never been a fan of musical theater or people who take part in musical theater....

    We have a Musical Comedy Theater in Yekaterinburg. There are interesting productions.
    My favorite is "The Children of Captain Grant", the music to which Isaak Dunaevsky himself wrote ... ah yes - here hardly anyone knows who it is ...
    So let's change the subject - and then the memories and the rod !!!!!!!!!

    It's not so much the musicals themselves as it is the people who are in them. Les Miserables and Book Of Mormon were great, and though I couldn't follow the plot, Phantom had great music.

    I don't give a flying fuck what anybody says, however: Something Rotten was NOT funny. Omlette? Hamlet? Were those jokes written by Kindergartners?
