sdzewhile Loew wanders about somewhere in the southern seas. I have to confess something: when Lev just started actively running this blog, I didn’t read it at all. That is, what the fuck did I have to read my friend from the screen? Let her mouth tell me. It's all the same, your wife, to the question “how did you sleep, cat?”, Will answer you: “then you will read it in my journal”.

And then he got involved somehow. And I even started to like to read it - I, on the subject, at one time, even otrefleksiroval - say, it's cool when your friends are moving from living, hairy uncles to media personalities.
And now, for two or three years, I have been observing how Lyova learns to write in Russian and how, gradually, his same stories are pulled up to the level of stories that he - tells - verbally. I still prefer it in a living form, but I also quite like this magazine now (especially in the last couple of weeks). But these five posts in his magazine like most:

one.About the life values ​​of the New York blockheads

Here Lev has very wittily written about the eternal values ​​of his friends.

2. Applied internationalism in bed

Here - very tactfully about the features of flirting with the ladies of the city of New York.
Okay, okay, just kidding. Of course, I like the block-calves and the beds, but I read better. Actually, here they are - my favorite Levina texts in this magazine:

1. In Russian after 24 years in the USA

Here, Lyova writes about linguistic difficulties, Russian-speaking immigrants, whose parents were taken out of Russia by their children or teenagers. We speak English with an accent, but we can speak better on it than in the language of our childhood. With the Russian, the same situation is absolutely the opposite: we speak without an accent, but we can not say anything. Despite this, Lev had a very coherent way to convey our experience — by her own example.

2. Why Americans do not understand where I'm from

Who am i? Jew? Russian? American? We are the last generation who still laugh at Soviet jokes. We are Jews who do not live in Israel and do not know Hebrew. We have been living in New York since childhood, and in the rest of America we are considered rootless cosmopolitans.Once, I myself tried to describe the typical immigrant of our wave, but Leva did it more thoughtfully and truthfully.

3. What do I (not) believe

"Religion is poison, take care of the children." We left with Lev such a poster in the hallway hung. Maybe because of him it happened, but active lovers of Hebrew tales or there fans of various Middle Eastern uncles seem to me no more perspicacious than those who believe in Santa Claus, but atheists often resemble frantic fanatics who are trying to enlighten the dense masses with foam at the mouth. Leva, surprisingly tactful, lays out his position on the shelves. As it usually happens, a normal weighted position means that the stones will fly at you from all sides.

4. ... so that the moment of our meeting was happier

To some extent, this is also about religion. Following the link are photographs of our friends at a very emotional moment: the burning of the Burning Man Temple. This event is the culmination of the Burning Maine - a huge festival that takes place annually in the desert of Nevada. As in that joke: “To peep after an orgy: one hundred rubles; spying on those who spy on an orgy: three hundred. " Strong portraits. True, all the physicists in the photos are well known to me, so maybe I’m not the most unbiased critic. And what do you think?

5. New York: walk on the five bridges

I love my hometown! How many streets I trampled, how many trains I traveled, how many bravura words I wrote about my love! Most of our tourists believe that New York is the twenty crowded neighborhoods in Manhattan and, on the side, is Brighton Beach. Levina walk on five bridges shows our city the way we like it, the natives - certainly deserving a sleepless night.
While looking through the same in search of favorite opuses, I found out that this blog was still in the days of Medvedev and Bush Jr. I even found such a proto-cry about likes and social networks - click here until Leva erases it. In general, ten years later we will repeat it again - wait for the next Levin to take time off.
