Borce: Yeah I agree and also he will be on MTV this Sunday in one really intersting show...I really can't wait to see him there!!!!!

ybet: Agree, but what happenmd with the show last night??

Borce: Ybet I read here that Dima's fan club in Vitebsk,Belarus met with Dima yesterday and had contact with him and they told that they will write about the concert in Sunday and also that they will put pictures and I hope on videos too...

miranda: that's good! i envy them so much!

Borce: Btw did someone watch the show with Dima on MTV yesterday?I want to ask how was the show and did someone record the show?

Guinness: I did, however I wasn't recording. To be honest with you, it was not worth recording anyway, as Dima spoke less than two minutes in total, and was not particularly keen on fighting for the microphone! Indeed I don't understand why Dima had chosen to attend the show and sit on the panel of judges - just PR??? And I am not sure he had known who would be joining him on the panel - almost half of his "colleagues" were what we usually call "have-beens", that is, outdated pop singers, stars of 1980s, like Alyona Apina, Natalia Gul'kina, Victor Saltykov, Igor Sarukhanov (if those neames mean anything to younger generation)... For them, appearing on the MTV show was just about the last chance to remind the TV audience of their existence. I do not really believe it was the right company for Dima, even as a PR move in anticipation of his first album. And in addition to that, all the three video clips shown and judged by the panel, to my mind, were not exactly thrilling! So, Borce, cheer up - you have not missed anything important!

miranda: everything with dima is worth watching for me. even if he only speaks less than 1 minute.

Gladys: Borce,Miranda There is the show with Dima on MTV on the radio Koldun http://www.liveinternet.ru/community/radio_koldun/post103341437/

silhouetteofthenight: Thanks for sharing Gladys! guys, can someone please tell what Dima said in his last post yesterday in audio/video discussion, because google translation really doesn't make any sense..

Guinness: silhouetteofthenight : guys, can someone please tell what Dima said in his last post yesterday in audio/video discussion, because google translation really doesn't make any sense.. Dear Silhouetteofthenight, I regret to tell you (and this is between you and me of course) that there is nothing wrong with Google translation... It is Dima's message itself that doesn't make any sense!!! However, being bilingual by virtue of birth (or by virtue of magic!), I dare offer my modest translation below... As if it helps....... "Hi! It is no good to speak bad! But what can be done when discords reign everywhere, and there is no place on Earth where one can escape and nestle to so one has to hold on his Neutralism. I longed to be at the shooting of the program, and here we go - I was shown on the TV! And what did I intend to say by that? Here I am or something else Only He knows that! This is like on the EurovisiON if you want to witness your own failure drink vodka Because everything here cuts three ways, namely: failure, fame, experience! And life is given to us to value our experience last" Can you make head or tail of it??? I could not possibly do that!

ybet: Guinness : Can you make head or tail of it??? I could not possibly do that! me either.. but maybe 'cause i have no idea what was the main topic of the discussion but anyway thank you for translating for us

silhouetteofthenight: Guinness thanks for translating it for us. Actually sometimes google totally doesn't make sense, so I woludn't be surprised this time hehe but however, it seems Dima likes to play with our minds sometimes lol do I sense there a flavor of poetry though? it's not necessary it makes head or tale, but I think he was kinda referring to life and experiences he's had.. who knows what's going on in this head of Dima's sometimes when he's writing us here,right xP

Guinness: Dear Silhouetteofthenight, I fully agree that Dima's message was definitely supposed to be felt rather than understood. And I am glad you can sense a flavour of poetry - it means, not al of this flavour was lost on translation. Incidentally, at 09:15 today Dima has posted another message, and I will try to translate it later today - if I only can!

Borce: Incidentally, at 09:15 today Dima has posted another message, and I will try to translate it later today - if I only can! OMG Guinness!!!! I only understood that he write the message before he went to Minsk and that he is talking about some calendar... What is the story about the calendar?Btw today is the press conference...I can't wait....
