Recently I'm getting addicted to the culture of Eastern Europe and Russia even though it is only through these exaggerated types of musical media. I used to get into know them a bit only through old literature like Dostoevsky, Tolstoy or Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. After the collapse of the wall in Berlin followed by ending of cold war, I had more chance to get exposed to their culture of the eastern bloc through cinemas, plays or books but this type of music video seems to be working much more powerful than any other means.
Under the cold war ideology, Russia and all other eastern bloc countries under Soviet influence were categorized as enemy countries for a long time in my country till the end of my youth. No modern novel under Soviet regime, no movie, no music, of course no travel.. By then I could reach the forbidden countries only through classic music or literature created by the geniuses in old imperial Russia. All the masterpieces were as grand in scale and profound in depth as the huge mother nature and Orthodox church of Russia.
Then in early 1980, I read a book of 'Children of Arbat' by Anatolii Rybakov and I realized the fact that there were people with similar sort of joy, anger and agony in the country as well... And Kundera's 'Unbearable Lightness of Being' was really superb. And 'One Hundred Years of Solitude' was absolutely greatly written one though it's from central asian country, Khazahstan. Now I see lots of people from eastern Europe everywhere in other countries as well as in Korea working hard in many areas particularly in science and engineering. And enjoying their up-to-date musical achievement through on-line is another joy living in the technically enabled webified world.
