С днём рождения! March 24, 2006

Posted by BiB in Uncategorized.
Ищу уже три часа примерно клип песни Крокодила Гены. Хотел так поздравить Русскую службу Би-Би-Си со днём рождения. 60 лет уже Би-Би-Си вещает на русском языке. Служба была мне дорога тогда, когда жил в Питере. До сих пор является хорошим источником нейтральных новостей и интересных передач. Молодцы. Поздравляю.

Erm…crocodile…BBC…60 years…

The BBC hasn’t shown Crocodile Dundee for 60 years?

My Russian’s not what it was.

It was an (utterly failed) attempt by me, by the magic of Cyrillic, to tempt readers from the east herewards. Fell flat as a pancake. BUT, you’re half way there. The BBC’s Russian Service turned 60, so I was wishing them many happy returns, which I’m sure they were chuffed to bollocks about. Crocodile Gena is this famous children’s literature character, and he and his friend Cheburashka, a big-eared, vaguely teddy-bear-like creature, do children’s-literature-like things together. (And Gena has a job at the zoo, as a crocodile.) Anyway, there’s a very nice Crocodile Gena birthday song – “…unfortunately your birthday only comes once a year…” – which I have seen a video version of, but could I find the bastard? Could I buggery!

Still no confirmed sightings of Wyndham?
