5. Huh?

Are you commemorating the death today of the anti-Putin Russian politician- Boris Nemstov- who was shot in the back four times this morning?

7. Soviet national anthem

...I remember it well from the Olympics back in the 60s and 70s. As a child of the Cold War, we hated those Soviets and that damn song. But there was Lake Placid, baby! My how the world has changed since.

8. More than my proletarian ears can withstand, tovarisch!

So here's something I think all the workers of the world can unite behind:



Nasdrovia!

12. The guitars are as big as they are.

 

At least they get enough to eat.

14. Ah, yes. No styrofoam grapefruit for these young daughters of the Dear Leader.

They should have hired them for a cameo in 'The Interview'; if nothing else it would have given the movie a sorely needed touch of finesse.

15. For sure.

 

The real tragedy is that all the kids learn to do is collectively mimic. What a waste of talent.

16. My thoughts exactly.

It's like watching a Sunday school chorus in the Deep South (I lived in Mississippi for years, and remember those well).

Getting back to the other side of the Iron Curtain, here's one last one from the Soviet Union itself (1973):

11. Nice!

They'd probably be very successful touring in Britain. East-meets-west usually goes over quite well in the U.K. (except among Tories and UKIP types).

13. The word "solo"

 

does not exist in the North Korean vocabulary. These kids probably live in Pyongyang, and at least they aren't starving like so many in the countryside.

10. We have this pseudo

 

religious ritual where I teach every morning called "a moment of silence" right after the Pledge of Allegiance. Everyone is expected to stop still wherever they are and be quiet. The devout bow their heads and pray. If I'm in my room I play the Soviet national anthem loud enough to be heard in the hall while I stand silent with my eyes closed and my head bowed.
