Try to guess where in this World the last shelter of dragons, witches,
sorcerers, vampires and statanists can reside? Where, when the Moon is
full Jungarian hamsters are sacrificed? Where everything is ruled by the
Dark Lord Himself who drinks Light Beer eating lost souls under chile
sauce? It appears that in our technocratic society, with its
sky-scrapers, ergonomic keyboards, toothpicks, mobile phones with
changeable panels, and lavatory pans, there is still such a place! Not
even just a small place, but a whole country where yours sincerely has
been living for more than half a year already. Stereotypes are very
strong for they exist almost everywhere. I'll give two sources that are
located on opposite sides of the map relatively to Romania.
The first movie to amuse me was "Harry
. I have finally managed to watch it. Unfortunatelly I didn't
with a computer so I could miss something. Nevertheless, I made up my
opinion. The movie is usually spoken about well, and I think it's worth
such an appreciation. It also doesn't claim to be a cult like "The Lord of the Rings"
I want to watch only on a wide screen when it finally arrives here. I
like the Tolkien's book a lot, that's why I'm going to watch it
attentively. Anyway, HP is a nice fairy-tale, with flashy graphics and
quite an intresting story. Children (at least not brain-damaged ones ;)
should definitely be fond of it. Romania is mentioned frequently and
with serious faces in the movie when it goes about various misterious
things. Particulary I remember the scene with a little dragon hatching
out from an egg. One of the heroes said there were a lot of such
creatures in Romania. By the way, a bit later it was extradited
(repatriated?) to the respective country.
The secound source is located a bit to the East, in yours sincerely's
historical Fatherland, i.e. in Russia. Here the nice, the most tolerant
(do you remember whining about the Pope's coming?) and the holiest in
the World Moscow patriarchy put out the
about cults and sects. By the way, it was put out in the
Internet which was considered by the same organization as a Satan's
invention not so long ago. Though the guys in frocks paid a bit of their
invaluable attention to the latter by writing a whole page
about Satanism and its varieties. Must admit its author was familiar
and that's why its main points were described there
well enough. At other hand the resource was too Orthodox-centric.
Particulary, it said that the main enemy of Satanism is Orthodoxy. I was
courious how many times LaVey had heard about this branch of
Christianity over there in San-Francisco :)
Ok, I lost the point a little bit. On the same page the priest guys
discussed geography telling us where evil satanists should had been
looked for. What do you think? Romania again. There is already too many
Needs to be mentioned that locals are very and very piety. Even more
than it's possible to imagine living somewhere in the former USSR. Half
of the population crosses theirselves passing by a church. They do it
not only walking, but also when driving a car, going with a bus, riding
a horse, even riding a Jungarian hamster (what's wrong with me today?).
Looks like if they don't do it, some of the guys from the Celestial
chancellery will punish them or write down a note into a small black
Obviously, the statement about crowds of satanists in Romania is caused
by someone's stereotypes and by the lack of knowledge of local reality.
Anyway, if there is at least one alive satanist around here I'd talk
with them with a great
pleasure. Ave Satanas, and be good, boys and girls.
