Twilight Language: Cold War Inklings?

Every July in Eugene, Oregon, the Maude Kerns Art Center (a local non-profit arts center) puts on a three day event: Art and the Vineyard. Art, of course, as well as food, drink, and music in a large park by the Willamette River. One person who attended the fair was offended by the fair's choice of music performance because it wasn't patriotic, being the Russian musicians Trio Voronezh. The patriotic citizen wrote a letter to Eugene's Register Guard newspaper; here's some of what he wrote:

We enjoyed the Art and the Vineyard festival at Alton Baker Park on the Fourth of July and the evening's fireworks. . . none of us could begin to understand why they booked a Russian band to play Russian music as the lead-in to the fireworks. For the final hour, ... rather than presenting us with patriotic American music, we listed to one Russian tune after another.

Finally, in the realization that this was, after all, the United States, we did get to hear a single American march, "Stars and Stripes Forever," played on a balalaika.

The three-man Russian band, Trio Voronezh, made up of Russian musicians who now live in Eugene, is actually quite good, but it has no place whatever at an Independence Day celebration. Perhaps the organizing committee believes we would be better off with the "Internationale," rather than traditional American patriotic music. It is indeed difficult to believe that anyone other than a committed socialist would book Russian music as the prelude to the Fourth of July fireworks.

Voronezh, Russia, besides being home to Trio Voronezh, was the site of a famous UFO case in 1989 that made international news at the time. On September 27 of that year, a red sphere shaped UFO landed in front of several witnesses in a park. There are elements in this event that remind me of the Flatwoods case and other tales of diver type suited robotic aliens. "Silver jump suited" aliens and robotic entities emerged from the UFO; one alien shot a ray gun or beam at a witness, which seemingly caused him to disappear only to reappear several moments later. The UFO was seen several times over a few days prior to this strange episode. This case is so weird and reminiscant of the good old days of flying saucer landings with saucer-nauts and ray guns. Aliens from space or Russian military exercise, who can say.

Recently the news stream announced that a Russian spy ring had been operating in the Untied States for years. Politics and entertainment (I know, what's the difference) merged when Vice President Joe Biden appeared on the Jay Leno show. Biden joined Leno in a comedy sketch and later, they discussed the busted Russian spy ring. Leno showed a photo of one of the alleged spies, Anna Chapman, who's been described as "sultry" by every talking head and newspaper it seems. Leno showed a photo of alleged spy Chapman and asked: "Do we have any spies that hot?" to which Biden, a frustrated comedian, said: "Let me be clear. It was not my idea to send her back."

More Russian connections in entertainment; Mel Gibson and his Russian ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva are involved in an ugly break-up. Lesley Gunter recently commented on the affair on her Totally Girlie Blog. Lesley quotes from tapes of Gibson ranting at Oksana; nasty and frightening stuff:

You look like a f*cking bitch in heat. And if you get raped by a pack of ni**ers it will be your fault.

Unfortunately, it gets much worse. Lesley writes:

This guy has some major issues and I wouldn't be at all surprised if we don't eventually see an OJ type scenario play out, maybe not with Oksana, but if I were her I wouldn't take any chances. I don't know what domestic violence laws are in CA, but I really hope they throw the book at him.

In a bit of synchronicity; I was taking a break from writing this article, and checked the C2C site to see about tonight's guests. This is what I found:

In the first hour, renowned hypnotist Rick Collingwood will discuss his work with Mel Gibson and how hypnotism can be used to improve one's life.

Hypnotism, spies, aliens, ray guns, patriotism, violence, moral indignation, racism, politicians, and sultry women. . . twinklings from the land of twilight language.
