Ubercake, Ukrainian style

Ubercake, Ukrainian style

This cake by a Ukrainian master won the first place in the cake competition in Poland. It is like a living cartoon. (Found it here.)

As a matter of fact, this cake reproduces a scene from the legendary Ukrainian cartoon — There Once Lived A Dog. It is based on an old folk tale about a dog, who grew old and weary and his family threw him away. In the forest, trying to take his own life, he...

Atlantis / Ukrainian style

Atlantis / Ukrainian style

or, to be more precise, Brom-style by a Ukrainian rock band Armada. I am not sure it is a pastiche or an homage.

Ukrainian sirens 

Ukrainian sirens 

This is a weirdly fascinating music video with women wearing all kinds of Ukrainian folk costume items and being slowly disrobed by black hands while sit-dancing and singing in English about how they want to touch their addressee. And it does look and sound surreal.

Knightly Workout

Knightly Workout

My brother, who is deeply into historic reconstruction shared this little swee/atie on his Facebook page.

These are Czech reconstructors (you cannot call them LARPers as they are deadly serious about their armors — totally historically accurate! and about their weapons — heavy but blunt).

I once tried jogging in a chain mail, it was fun. Especially fun was after I took it off and I...

Cossack protecting peasants and modern Ukraine

Cossack protecting peasants and modern Ukraine

this little fantasy video is like a short romp through Ukrainian history with a lot of symbols and artefacts generously thrown in for a good measure.

the instrument the boy is playing is called bandura. it is a versatile instrument fit both for folk and classical music — or pop, if you are into that kind of thing.

the video was shot in the Kyiv skansen Pyrohovo.

Human-swine war (very NSFW)

Human-swine war (very NSFW)

Found this video in a friend’s LiveJournal, decided to share it here.

For a 5-minute video, camera work is really nice, as are the stunts. A lot of gore, violence, nudity.

Ukrainian dads are cool. As are granddads. 

Ukrainian dads are cool. As are granddads. 

I like ads like this — gender-sensitive, fun, and without objectification of women (and men in princess dress are always welcome!). I wish more ads were like this. It is an ad for Ukrainian mineral water, which I used to love — but ever since the manufacturer was purchased by a Russian company I had to give it up. Pity.

Also, a friend reminded me of this ad, in which a woman asks a...

Ukrainian Symphonic Rock Carol of the Bells

Ukrainian Symphonic Rock Carol of the Bells

In its initial, Ukrainian, form and played by the Ukrainian National Academic Orchestra of Folk Instruments. This is a video from their New Year concert and it is filled with the holiday spirit. And the following videos are covers of the Beatles, Abba, and Misirlou, the one legendary tune from Pulp Fiction, played with gusto and lots of oompf. Enjoy :)
