Your Letters


hi there jared!

the thing is this: me and some friends are going to moscow for a week from the 28th of may. so you needn’t care about that but since we are from vienna/austria nobody here knows which clubs to go in moscow. as you write the nightlife column (which i checked) i wounderd if you can tell me some spots to go. we are into free (illegal) tekkno soundsystem scene here but i never heard of it existing in russia or even to be known. but i guess there must be some sort of underground punk clubs or gothic or new wave, stuff like that. and what about electronic music? which clubs play dark electro, hardtek, acid tekno etc.? it would be very kind of you to give us some hints, away from the usual scene, which i guess we can’t enter at least because of our looks and this damn strict face control you have there.

for the last: your newspaper rocks, didn’t know that this sort if style is possible in fascist russia!

so long, greetz from vienna


Dear rodi, Actually the reason you won’t be able to enter any clubs here is because everyone’s afraid that you Austrian clubbers are going to kidnap someone’s daughter and lock her up in your basement. We tried telling the Russians, "Hey, not all Austrians are pedophile Eurofags. Some of them are Nazis. Really, it’s not fair to stereotype an entire nation as just one thing. You have all types there – pedophile Eurofags, incest Eurofags, Nazi Eurofags, and even, in the case of lower-case-rodi, Eurofag-Eurofags. Austria, after all, is a rich culture with a proud history. If you skip about 10 or 15 years of that history, then it’s really, really proud.


Dear Yasha,

In anticipation of a Wheelchair-bound friend coming to visit, I searched "wheelchair moscow". Your article for the eXile was great. What made you think of doing 24 hours as an invalid? Coincidently, last night, I attended an auction from which the proceeds go to Diema’s Dream, a charity that helps Moscow’s handicapped, founded by American Mary Dudley. Your second article answered the question of why one doesn’t see handicapped people in the city. One of the aims of Diema’s Dream is to "break the cycle of automatic institutionalization of the disabled by encouraging families to keep their disable children within the family, providing support, out patient thearapy and counseling".

I am writing you to see if you have suggestions and advice for me as the host of a wheelchair-bound person for a week in Moscow. I would appreciate it greatly if you have time to write, even to suggest other web sites that have advise.

Keep up the interesting journalism.


CC Kent

Dear Mr. Kent, Our advice is simple: take your wheelchair bound companion clubbing to Papa John’s, McCoy’s, Krysha, you name it—because if Yasha learned one thing in his article, it’s that wheelchairs are the snapper magnets of the Medvedev Era. As we say around here in our offices, "Have wheelchair, will bone." Oh, and once you score, don’t worry about leaving your wheelchair-bound companion at the club. He’ll get around fine in this town, it’s so wheelchair-friendly he’ll think he’s died and gone to heaven (when in fact, he’s just died and nothing else!).


War Nerd,

While I am quite certain you are rather busy promoting your new book and all (copped it from amazon, should be here next week) but I would definitely like a bit of info or a post regarding North Korea’s special forces and the raid against the South Korean Parliament that you’ve alluded to in a few of your posts. I’ve searched around and aside from a rather extreme :) video showing Kim’s bodyguards training and generic listings of the break down (numbers etc) of the North Korean SF, I havent found much... Much obliged, and I hope your book blows up!
