Перевод Tanya Tiny

Внезапно стал известным
И знают все меня
И тысячи девчонок
Желаний не таят
Но сердце ты пленила
Лишь улыбнувшись мне
И счастлив я пусть даже

Warm wishes in a pillow

Moscow concert on 28 December, 2009 was chosen to be a great meeting of Russian-speaking FaceBookies. And we had been dreaming of presenting an unusual and memorable gift to Alex. Marina Ageeva had come up with a brilliant idea (like everything that comes to her mind) to make a pillow stuffed with soft hearts, hand-made by the fans of Alex. Lily aka Hands Off had sewed an extraordinary beautiful pillow. And 18 girls and one boy in different CIS countries had spent sleepless nights in creating, sewing, knitting and embroidering small touching hearts, which later crossed hundreds and thousands of miles to get to Moscow. As a result we’ve created a pillow filled with our love. Could you imagine what dreams Alex has when his head touches the pillow? 😉 Continue reading Warm wishes in a pillow

Report of the concert in Gothenburg, Sweden, Oct. 19th 2009

(A report by Milada Lenhartová from Brno, Czech Republik)

(Translated from Czech by Danka Čolláková, Slovakia)

Hi, Hi there everyone! I returned from Sweden, I have not even unpacked, and I’m with you. Do I have noted that it was such a surreal experience that I absolutely did not provide. For the record: I’m the old person who finally went with her husband the “honeymoon” after 37 years of marriage – to Alex’s concert in Goteborg. (I will find that once I’ve got a new computer, I’m not used to it…) but I should have noted that even though I’m an old granny according to calendar, I still feel like a girl, so I can also take these trips for Alex (in total enchantment) …
