James Franco & Seth Rogen - Bound 3



I laughed my heat out while watching this: let it be I'm the latest person on Earth who hasn't watched this online mockery till the moment. I love James Franco, I love the Kardashians, I love Seth Rogen. 

By the way, let me know when "The Interview" shows up on Amazon. I have to watch their politically bound scoffs and jeers. Gonna love it!  Happy weekends, cuties!

Oh my Karl! 


This unique person doesn't stop to amaze me. Since Chanel Haute Couture show in 2015,  I've been keeping track of Mr. Lagerfeld almost chaque jour like an obsessed freak! 
And from all the sh#t the media writes about him, I've stumbled upon this spice article by Irina Alexanderr from NYTimes
Check it out, check it out, check this f#cking out! 
Before you unveil the details yourself, let me pepper your curiosity a bit. The article is about the designer himself and his tom boy  favourite model Brad Kroenig, and Karl's private jet they both use to travel to Dubai (on business, of course!), and how the lucky sinewy companion meets his generous donator at an airport in the south of France and al' dat jazz. 
Just shut my mouth up with a Hermes handicrafted headscarf before I purge a bunk out of it. 
To cut along story short, let me just share with you a picture of Karl I borrowed from a Yandex photo bank featuting his finest trademark outfit,  and  then attached one of Karl's priceless sayings to it as a speech bubble. 
I bet this quote  is gonna be tattooed on my loins if I once decide to have a tattoo. Ready? Go....



Wham - bam - wham! Will you dare to cut in with a remark with a fashion mogul who's wearing a tie brooch gem med with royal diamonds? I won't! I just died, died, and died!
Mr. Lagerfeld's sharp tongue doesn't stop on holding up ugly losers to shame.
Next time when  there's a similar situation when you and your business partner or whoever are obliged to spend a night together in one room, you should say:

"You sleep on your seat, darling.... I have to arrive fresh, you don’t have to. Don’t be selfish."

I would better wish the Earth could swallow me up right at the moment it's been said. The steadfast soldier, that Brad is. 

Or if some of you still makes selfies,  just say good-bye to them, cause Karl hates selfies. Insterested why? See....

                                        “Don’t use your film for ugly purpose.” - Kanzler Karl blurted out.

Got it? Me got it..No selfies anymoar. If you see a selfie on my Instagram, send me this reminder, s'il-vous plait!

Fashion alert: there's a Brad Kroenig's younger brother who had been parted from the family in his childhood. He's a  sweet  kinky  guy living in the middle of nowhere and he' s searching for a vacant position of a full - time personal jet rider. He can also receive Dior blazers, rose-gold Rolex glimmered watch, Chrome Hearts diamond bracelets etc for granted,  and call you "generous" instead! Even super - pooper,  very generous if a Chanel bag with my hologrammed logo is involved! E-mail him, he's waiting for his once - in  - a lifetime chance! Or just say that you love him!  La Love!

The inner crisis






No, it's not the name of a new amazing obscure flick of Tom Ford. It's something real that I'm going through right now. I know it's not related to fashion, but my blog is not only about glitz and glamour. I would rather like it be as less glamorous and sparkly as possible, but more about something which inspires people. Nothing can be more inspiring than reality. That's why I'm sharing the following stuff with you. Sincerely enough....
Though it may be jaw-dropping to some of you, at this point the written stuff is more about the announced above in a heading topic for discussion than about me. I'm just an odd subject which is gonna be exposed to public, so that everyone could make his own opinion on the point. 

Has it ever happened to you when you're washing dishes or standing in a shower cabin, or whatever trivial stuff you're doing, and then wham....you start thinking that there's something wrong with your life?

Yesterday I burst out crying because of the idea which stroke my mind. That's kind of problem I started thinking of! Absense of gratitude which is a substantial part of people's loneliness. 

I intuitively felt like calling my Granny who is now 75 years old, and telling her that I owe her everything good which built my personality, and that I love her so much. How often  do you do the same thing I wonder? 

At the same time, I can't adress the same words to my mom whom I love a priori, but we are at a different level of relationships which don't allow us to utter kind words towards each other quite often. We used to know tough times, you know, but it's too personal to post them here. This is what is related to my inner conflict. That's the way I'm thinking this conflict of. Let me know if I chose the wrong words for it. 

Sometimes the concept of the 'final carriage gone off' subconsiously comes to my mind! What if I'm destined to die alone? What if I'm not born to live happily and share last and forever wedding vows with my beloved person? 

I'm so used to that order of things when I live alone, from the first sight,living in comfort with absence of long-term relationships, that it scares me to death. 

Though I wrote a term paper on "Conceptual analysis of Lonelines" when I was a graduate student, my inner self is fighting against the concept of loneliness itself. I don't want to die alone! I am scared, but the older I become, the more impossible seems to me to build relationships with another person. And condolesneces like "You haven't met the right person yet" won't help. 

Being a full - time disciple of "untraditional love" in a country whose current politics is against abnormality, it's not an easy job to go against the stream. 

To give up seems to be tempting, but that easy sort of things is not my cup of tea. 

I'm sure in every atom I consist of so that it doesn't need any apology either to my country's politics, or to its society's subjective point of view on gay marriage! 

At the current moment I'm exposed to the quite unnatractive picture when there's a trend of mutual misunderstanding between two people. Those who live together mostly pretend that they're happy together for it can be explained by their high social status.

Marital fidelity among gays rather provokes a bitter smile than a conjugal piety nowadays. Gay males seem to prefer material pleasures like wicked games in a form of fisting, dildoes, and BDSM sex than spiritual ones in a form of sitting in front of a fire-place, savouring nuisance wines and having passionate sex on a bear skin instead. Cause there's noone who would be irreplaceable these days. That's unlikely to be the bitter sweet of things

Some years ago I could hardly ever imagine that in the XXIst century my biggest dream would be being irreplaceable which sounds horrible and practically irrelevant to my inner self. OMG!

My biggest fear which I'm sure every normal person aged between 25 - 28 y.o face IAE., is not to catch the final carriage off, but not to catch it just in time. 

This kind of fear is getting on my nerves. And there are few people who understand me. 

Thanks God, I've got you, my dearest fans, who I can share anything and everything without knowing most of you in person, and of course, I have my friends, so I'm sure I will survive. 

My best friend once said about the topic geniously I think. I'll cite her in Russian so that it looks genuine, but I'll try to submit the substence of her words in Engish too afterwards. I hope they'll make your fears which are similar to mine fade away. 

"Когда есть родители - уже не так одинок, когда есть вторая половинка -  уже почти не одинок, когда есть дети - не одинок вовсе. Одиночество оно противопоказано человеку. Даже отшельники и монахи никогда не одиноки: с ними всегда Бог,  и они постоянно  - в молитвенном общении с Ним. Одиночество не свойственно по природе человеку, поэтому люди страдают от одиночества." (Светлана Сергеева)

"When you run through a family feeling you're already not alone. When you have a partner, you're almost not alone, but if you have children you're definetly not alone. Loneliness is revolting to a human being. Even ascetics and monks because of their permanent spiritual conversation with the Supreme, don't feel alone as they believe in God who's their companion throughout their life. People suffer from the Loneliness cause this seems not natural to them(Svetlana Sergeeva). 

Priceless, no? 

As the main outline of this post I've adjusted to it a Youtube video of a trailer of Tom Ford's extremely beautiful film  which is called "A Single man" about a similar but quite a shelled type of  my personal story. Watch this film of a heart  - stopping beauty before you think you understand what my problem is about and probably post a comment which is always welcome. Enjoy! 


I love y'all

#1 COUTURE LOOK: Maurice Chabale's kaleidoscope



There are twelve designers who by the moment have shown their collections at  Paris Haute Couture 2015. 
So I decided to look over all of them and choose just one look (each provided with a short comment in brackets) from every collection in line and share my personal kaleidoscopic choice with you. I tried to take into consideration different tastes of my readers based on the statistics of my blog (geography, age etc.). And I also tried to be  objective as more as possible on the point of trends which in my humble opinion are going to reign this year. I hope my prediction will correlate somehow with your personal Couture wishlist. Guys, this is a barefaced hint on the fact that you'd better work your @sses off to get us one of these wonderful pieces, and I didn't include accessories here, so you owe me
I already feel the spirit of St. Valentine's Day in the air. All photos are courtesy of Vogue.ru. Thank you! 

 CHAPURIN (for those who stake on good ol' classics)

Weekly inspo - digest


I'm starting a new header on the blog where I'm going to sum up everything which kept inspiring me during the past week. It can be whatever comforting, artsy, edgy, exciting, ugly, fugly etc.
And I hope this sludge will inspire you somehow too and yet you'll share with me some other stuff which you think might be insirational. In this case feel free to post a comment with the link directing to the stuff.  Ready? Steady? Go...


The woman in black 2: Angel of Death movie

photo via Twitter (@WomanInBlackTwo)

Based on original story directed by Tom Harper and written by Jon Croker from a story by Susan Hill, the horor-drama "The Woman in black 2" is the sequel to "The Woman in Black" starring Daniel Potter  Radcliffe who had helped to raise a grand total of $127.7 million worldwide. 
I had watched the 1st part, that's why this time  I decided that the sequel was worth watching too, though the original cast was not so tempting. Apropos you will see Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine in the movie if you know who they are. 
I think that this movie got to know a common problem of all sequels: audience can't help but comparing it to the first part. In this case too, whatever concrete scare or creepy effect the producers of the film tried to let loose upon me, I was not scared enough. 
Not only me...There I even heard giggles and laughs around on some scenes. And of course, the translation wasn't so good, which played Old Harry with the audience's side effect. 
To cut a long story short, I'm distinctly underwhelmed, and not impressed quite enough. But though it was a good time spent in front of a big flat screen together with a can of Coke in one hand and a huge bowl of pop-corn in another. 
Here's the synopsis of the film: 

As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut-off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House.
One by one the children begin acting strangely and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and escape the wrath of The Woman in Black.

BTW these photos were taken by a passer-by whom I asked to snap me for my Instagram, and he surprisingly didn't mind it. This uneventful fact can explain an apparently contended expression on my face. If only you knew how scary it was. Pardon my inner sociopath! 


Mikhail Baryshnikov's photographic exhibition "Dancing away"

Yes, my dearest narrow-minded fashion monsters. Mikhail Baryshnikov is not only a  character from your favourite sitcom "Sex & Prad Pitty the City" where he played a visual installation artist in the final nine episodes. He had known the light of spotlights long before you and me were born (but he still looks great in his 30-ties, no?). I'm obsessed with his artistic partnership with a jewellery jumbo - Damiani. Read more about their project here and enjoy the photos (courtesy of Vogue.it).

Gosha Rubchinskiy at Paris Fashion Week

More precisely, I mean Gosha's collection here. No words. Only emotions.  I'm too subjective and prejudiced in this particular designer's case, I hope you understand it all. No matter how trivial the word "patriotism" might seem to someone, this particular word works best when it comes to success of your compatriots. Congrats, Gosha!

Yet, I got inspired by Gosha's art some days before this collection was released. I was walking along Krasnaya St., which is the central long avenue in Krasnodar, Russia, and some random guys, skinheads actually, caught my eye. With their buzz cuts, ordinary-looking loose pants printed camo, lumberjackets and all,  they looked as if they sprang out of one of the Rubchinskiy's sketches. I took my iPhone immediately and snapped them as quickly as I can. Just in case: one can expect the good from bald butch youngsters, you know. 




I love y'all! 



Yours,

If there's a slang word which beats both most popular emotional expressions in my poor Rushlish  - "OMFG (oh my f#cking god) and 'HS (holy sh#t) bear this word in mind cause I shall apply it to Rick Owens' Fall 2015 conceptual menswear collection. 
Just tell me what is that? I'd call it "When Gargantua & Pantagruel met Pier Paolo Pasolini: all translated into language of fashion".

Louis Vuitton statement accessories line: pin earings

photo via Vogue.ru

I ran into a photo featurig a look from Louis Vuitton AW 15 menswear fashion show on Instagram feed of LASH magazine earlier today and I died. How come the almighty House of Holy Louis Vuitton deigned to punk? Don't get me wrong I love punks and their culture especially so masterfully interpreted and adopted by another top-notch fashion designer - Vivienne Westwood, but this particular gold earring granted on me.  I don't know why. Maybe because of this  or this which is worse actually.  Or maybe I just can't stand the idea of body piercing in general? OK, I understand it all  - a reference to Chris Nemeth and blah-blah-blah, but... 
Moreover I liked the whole collection. I'd also like to do justice to the brand's going back to speaking in words of Tim Blanks its "world-in-motion heritage' in terms of the classical monogram which had been used on the handbags. What think you?

Pharrell on the cover of  GQ Magazine February Issue 2015


(photo via highsnobiety.com)

What do me and Pharrell Williams have in common? Right -  nothing!
Except we both are keeping our getting fat and ugly (or fugly) self-portraits on the attic to stay forever young in real life. Maybe we don't, but people think we do.
Let me just not tell you how cool this man is. Y'all know it better than me
I'm happy to announce that this month's cover man of GQ Mag is the author of evergreen single "Happy".
If  Jonathan Luk is to be trusted, "the singer/producer is eulogized in the publication’s Legacy Project: “a Hall of Fame portfolio of music makers who made the most noise over the past twelve months.” 2014 was a year that saw up and coming hip-hop artists earn their dues, established figures continue to flourish and electronic music acts exclaim their accession. The cover man is featured alongside St. Vincent, Sam Smith, Future, Mark Ronson, Stevie Wonder, Diplo, Kim Gordon, Rick Ross, FKA Twigs, James Blake, Drake, Lil Wayne, Young Thug, Karen O, Spoon, Nas and Iggy Azalea with portraits shot by photographer Pari Dukovic. The February 2015 issue will be on newsstands nationally beginning January 27."
This is not the first contribution of Mr. Williams to the edition's fame (or vice versa). Check this link to see Pharrell seen by a photographer Paola Kudacki through her camera lenses for the April 2014 issue of GQ magazine.

Stylight Fashion Influencer 2015  Awards: Winners' bash


I'm so happy to congratulate my colleagues (if I dare say so), a cluster of lucky bitches  fashion bloggers who must be filling up their ventriculus with Veuve Cliquot and other strong beverages now in sexy Berlin while celebrating their win. 
Five jury members -  Bryanboy (*LaLove!!!*), Sylvie Meis, Bar Refaeli, Benjamin Guenther, and Anita Tillmann  - handed the first prize to six people during the Stylight Fashion Blogger Award the other day. And there was one special Prize for the Fashion Influencer of the Year which got super nice Kristina Bazan whose blog Kayture I religiously follow every day!  
Let me remind you that the SFIA15 is  an evening dedicated to the worlds most inspiring fashion influencers.
So here they are, the winners. Please meet 'em:

Red Turtleneck + Check & Plaid gray trousers  = AndyWarholed Turkish Madonna


Before I start muttering into my non-existant beard about the shows in Berlin, lemme just boast about my newly arrived array of clothes.
There are three pieces I got the other day from Helen Lichutina,  better known as my mom. Yes, I obviously do like feeling like team Tina and Beyonce Knowles! Some day I hope we both we'll buit our own House of Deréon. Am I delusional or what?
Helen sewed a red turtleneck, check & plaid trousers herself specially for me. Yahoo...
I myself bought the black taper-nosed shoes from Centro, coz they reminded me of a suede version of the same taper-nosed shoes made by Ennio Capasa for  Costume National AW 2015collection
The rest like a knitwear with check & plaid front part by Zara and New Balance sneakers is a courtesy of my aunt. She bought the jacket in Finland last year for my cousin who's grown up a lot by now and in his early - fifteens he looks like a friggin' Schwarzenegger in his mid-thirties.
But what doesn't match young straight muscle marys, matches twink gaylords. 
Not that I like to inherit a shabby crap from my kin. But had I refused to accept the jacket, my chances to survive would be minimal for my aunt can't stand refusals. I mean at all. Despite all I liked it: it makes a perfect combination with my new trousers. I won't comment on the sneakers, cause I'm at a loss of words. I love them so much. 
Nonetheless, I'm happy to make my wardrobe more plumpy with those garments and footwear.
For a greater visual effect's sake  I Power-Pointed some of the images. But even if I look like a bad version of Andy Warhol-ed Modern  Turkish Madonna on them, I like the whole thing though.
What  think you? To cut a long story short, enjoy the photos

Se moquer  - c'est important?

Once my mom  in my presence  criticized a very famous Russian celebrity for him having a laughable image.  She said that there's nothing good in being laughed at. I must admit, that he's quite eccentric, yes, but in my humble opinion there's nothing bad in it, and that he's not to blame for other people's narrow-mindness. Why be a celebrity if you aren't able to look like a frigging clown at people's expense?
I think, on the contrary, being laughed at can be smart. Think of Gogol, for example, or my favourite TV host - Catherine Tate. Such people make us think, not only giggle.
It has nothing to do with some stupid slapstick shticks which flooded Russian TV though,  while they're watched only by geriatric zombies.

On that note I'd like to present my self-made *fashion* drama to Imany's famous single 'You will never know' where I'm drowned in self-mocking and audacious self-irony (Click here to watch). I spent the ENTIRE NIGHT trying to figure out how to cut, adjust, streamline my bedtime dressup madness (though I'm mosty naked there). And I finally did it by the time when cocks outside started to swarm into my door to crow! Hey, TPTBs at the Oscars, Golden Globes, Sundnace Film Festivals, and Cannnes here I goooo! You'd better set a special prize for the best 'pathetic gay twink blogger who likes to bring his feet nails a good makeover'. This time I used a Mellow Yellow nailpolisher I unintentionnally picked up from a bowl with multi-colored 10 cents worth nail-polishers in a cheap department in Galereya Krasnodar. It's officially the main reason why I started to shoot the video, because I wanted to set this moment in stone  tape when I did pedicure MOIself for the first time in my life. Let's not talk about that by the end of the procedure I was yellow from head to toes. LOL. But that's the good reason, no? The pedicure bacchanalia had firstly intentioned to be a 3 - or  - something minutes long video for Instagram, but as a matter of fact the whole sh#t took me the entire sleepless night! 
It totally enticed me away. As a result my colored nails ended up appearing in the video only twice, but the rest is all about ME ME ME, and ME! Okay, there featured my new fluffy teddy monster bear (because he has a color of a drowned man. I mean really!) who pleases my ears every night by saying (with his creepy voice) that he loves me. 
Okay it used to be every night, coz now he's broken (I overlistened to him. nasty gurlz like compliments more than diamonds you know LOL). I guess he'll end up his last days as my headpiece for Halloween (Philip Treacy, are you reading this? I need your help!)
I'm happy that I discovered to myself the CUTE CUT app on App Store. Now I can shoot more videos featuring pieces from my wardrobe! I've got a plenty of ideas on my plate, be sure!. As for this video, better luck next time I would say. Practice is the best master as the saying goes, you know. I wish you a good next working week. 
Mine promised to be quite busy as usual. But I hope I'll be able to examine STYLE.com for the new Fall/Winter 2016 Collections. Stay tuned, I love y'all.

Miu Miu presents: The Door by Anna Duvernay




Let's leave aside the 'buzz' related to racism at the self -  complementary Masturbation Dome aka the Oscars, and focus more on fashion. 
As you've probably heard President Obama hosted  'Selma' yesterday January, 16 at White House. 
And of course, I'll be the last who'll watch the Oscar contender film if you take into consideration the fact that they work like a f#cking helix when it comes to broadcasting and promoting any worthy of notice film here in the cesspool I live. 
The director of the film is Ava Duvernay whose name stayed unfamiliar to my ears till this moment. I googled other films she directed and I came across 'The Door' - a beautifully shot story which was one of a few short films released by Miu Miu. 
While Ava's been the first black woman to win the best director prize at the Sundance Film Festival her talent is undisputable. I personally was mesmerized by the clothes which was shimmering here and there while I was watching 'The Door'. 
“Clothing is a symbol of renewal, each change of costume charting our heroine’s emergence from a chrysalis of sadness. In the final scenes, she takes off her ring, pulls on long, black leather gloves, and walks, transformed by the emotive power of the clothing, through the door.” –  Miu Miu
The great message of the film amazingly compactly packed in a beautiful form of gorgeous clothes, stylish interiors, and proper music is worth a standing applause I think. 
Watch the full episode here and tell me what you think, and which is you favourite look of the main heroine. I love Miu Miu!

John Galliano 4 Maison Martin Margiela

photo via Vogue.fr

I was right when last week I asked my mom to have a black sleeved silk top and bloody red loose silk underwear boxers shorts pants sewn for me by the spring/summer season 2015. I know that my guts  I need something shimmering of black and red. So does the King. 
This short post is my personal dedication to the one & only John Galliano (aka my idol, my fashion guru, and endless inspiration in one person of flesh and blood) who recently took over at the Paris-based Belgium brand - Maison Martin Margiela
I've been looking for seeing this Collection since I first heard them talking about the possible return of the 'undisputable talent' as Renzo Rosso calls Galliano,  who had once  been absurdly exiled from the runaway (IMHO). And voila, the renowned designer is back wearing a white coat (which reminded me of the smock Mr. Saint Laurent used to wear) which itself turned out to be a cherry on a pie of a beautiful 100% chic Couture show. 
From the first sight it was obvious that through years of his 'artistic oblivion' Mr. Galliano didn't forget to implement his 'oh so Galliano!' extravagance  into each outfit of the collection, but at the same time he also made a great job by mixing it with what his precursor of the same field had left to the Fashion House of Margiela. 
No one could pin-point this better than an international Vogue editor Suzy Menkez: "The connection ...between two apparently different designers ... could be a show for Christian Dior in 2000, when Galliano shook the Paris couture universe with a collection inspired by the city’ s homeless.
The handwork that went into creating the hanging threads and destroyed clothes was considered either as a poetic vision or a shocking insult – depending on the point of view. Margiela himself was a fashion advocate of re-making and re-cycling – with even his upscale pieces made from found objects such as thimbles or wigs."
Enough said! I hope here's more fabulous shows and beautiful clothes created by the genious of Mr. Galliano to go! And no more racist jokes won't break this rule! Amen!

Home...sweet home

fur coat - NO NAME (courtesy of my aunt)

There is nothing better than a feeling when you're back home. I'm sure y'all agree with me. I arrived in Krasnodar yesterday and I literally don't want to go out at least for a week, but oh that work. Duties are  already calling my name. 
Since the temperatures here don't want to drop down, it's been a truely shoe-breaking idea of going out. The furthest place I went to was a grocery shop downstairs.  
But first things first. I'd like to share with you some photos I made during my trip to Arkhangelsk, Russia. This is the place my soul belongs to, cause this is where I was born and where all my family members are currently living. So I thought this is a pretty good idea to visit my Granny I haven't seen for four years and a half and to use this opportunity as a Christmas gift. I'm all for surprising anyone and everyone! She didn't expect to see me though and the surprise caught her on a hop, but she was on cloud nine. I love her so much, and I'm gonna go there back in August if things get on me pretty well. 
Speaking about surprises, I've managed to  get so many gifts I didn't expect to. All of them aren't from my wishlist I had done before the holidays, but they are even better.

What it feels like to be famous? 



I'm currently in Arkhangelsk, Russia. It's my native town my white #ss comes from! I dunno what about you, but 2015 started pretty well for me!
Some days ago I got a mailer informing that I'm featured on theBesty.com, an online platform which gives a unique opportunity to be familiar with the best restaurants in the world and get reccomendations from famous people like Anthony Bourdain, Guy Fieri, and Rachael Ray etc. My close friends know my favourite saying "Modesty aside, the best things happen to the best people! And if they happen to you, you're special!". Thank you, team TheBestyCom for this chance to feel myself special this day! I am honored! You can read an article they posted about me on Tumblr, or subscribe my profile on their website - theBesty.com! Enjoy!




I love y'all!


Forever yours,

Maurice Chabale

Winter holidays: МОСКВА



woolen trousers, faux leather cut jacket, faux fur scarf - Helen Lichutina, sun glasses - RAY BAN

Hello, my darlings! I can officially congratulate you cause the New Year has come into full force and I hope it will bring us new positive emotions, lots of sexdrugsandrock'n'rolla fun, and add new happy pages to our life books. 
Last week I visited Moscow, Russia. I spent there three full days, and all I can say is I'm so excited. 
When I was in Krasnodar, I had  thoroughly planned my trip, and there were only four places I just wanted to go: famous art centers "ВИНЗАВОД" and "ГАРАЖ", a newly built district -  "МОСКВА City", and of course, a historical center - the infamous Red Square.
I managed to visit all of them except "ГАРАЖ", cause I couldn't find any events which were worth visiting there. Dasha Zhukova, are you reading this? I know that sailing on a private yacht is more interesting than managing the schedule at your own museum, but come on, poor peasants like MOI want to have fun too. So please, would you be soi kind to offer something moar exciting than art eksSPERMiments experiments?
But I hope I'll be able to do it next time when I visit the city which never sleeps once again. Get ready, my minions, cause I'm gonna expload with a sh#tload of photos now. Ready, steady, go....
