Here are some photos of russians:

As you can see, russians very like to drink, smoke and do stupid things.


New day. Smoke.

Hello my friends! When i woke up i actually didn't know what i'm going to write about for you today, but then i go outside for breath of fresh air and it become clearly or what to write about, because there was no fresh air, there was smoke. cigarette smoke.

There is too many smokers in russia, i bet more than in any country. Women smoke, young girls smoke because its cool, men smoke, pregnant women smoke kids smoke. When i was at school, 80% of my class where smokers many of them have grey teeth already in age of 15. And teachers never do anything about them, because 40% of teachers where smokers too.

You see, you just can't go outside in russia in city like mine and breath some fresh air, is most likely will be cigarette smoke.


Video games

So, I very like to play video games! 
My first gaming platform was videogame Console called Dendy
here it is:

And here is the logo:

What is this? Well, this is russian market replica of famous gaming system NES, same hardware inside, prise of 100$, ability to play pirate games, and this was in russian stores as official gaming system, because Nintendo didn't care  about russian videogames market (and they still don't care about us, for example price of one Wii in russia is 400$).
Here is some games for it:
  Looks like Japanese NES cartridges right? But all this are pirated NES games!
  In Russia we did not even have stores that sell games in those years, all systems and games where sale at markets like this

only instead of fruit they sell cartridges and consoles.

Also there was little shops with games and movies, many of them still exist today.
And you can still buy games for Dendy and Dedny itself there!
I can ashore you that there is no GTAIV in that cartridge, maybe some clone of Contra or Lifeforce. But people in russia still buys those. Even in 2011.

First post

So here it is, my first post let's get some things straight:
  • sorry for my bad English, I'm only studying it right now, so i think for you some of my posts will be weird, if you notice mistypes you can always correct me, I will be very thankful for that.
  • I don't have a job yet, it's very difficult in Russia to get a job for a person who study in college, the best you can get - 50 dollars per month job that take all your free time, for me thats unacceptable
  • So, previous line tells that I don't have a job, that means i have a lot of free time, witch i spend playing games, reading books and watching movies, so i could write about my favorite games, books and movie in my blog.
 So as you see, I want to tell you about my country and my life, let's start right now!

This is city where i live, it's called Yekaterinburg, also known as Sverdlovsk
 It is one of the biggest in Russia, population is more then one million people 

 this is all for now, because i need to continue getting used to this Blogger interface, you can ask anything about me or my country, i will answer, but please put you questions in easy form because as i said earlier - my English is very bad, i'm only studying it right now. I will be thankful for correcting me in mistypes, thank you.
Oh, and by the way, my name is Maxim, and you can call me Max, all my friends call me like that.
