I’ve been keeping advertisements off this blog by paying for “No Ads” upgrade with wordpress.com. Recently I learned that I can turn on ads and get a little share from the ads revenue they get. I’m going to turn on this feature in a few days and see how it goes for some time, what kind of ads they are going to put and if it will at least pay for all the extra upgrades on the blog.
Небоскребы, Небоскребы (Skyscrapers)
I know that there are a few visitors to this blog who lived in Soviet Union in the 80th and 90th and will probably relate to this post. Every time I visit NYC or see movies with some action in Manhattan I think of a little verse from a song that goes like this in Russian: “ Небоскребы, Небоскребы, а Я маленький такой” which means “Skyscrapers, Skyscrapers, but I’m so little”. It was performed by the Russian immigrant to NYC and was very well known in Soviet Union. I don’t remember the rest of the song and actually as of today didn’t even remember the name of the guy who performed it. Today I had to see if it is available on youtube and hear it again. Sure thing, there are a few versions of it available, all pretty cheesy, here is one if you like to hear/see it.
