The apple and pear trees blossomed,
Clouds and fog spread over the river.
Out for a walk on the banks was Katyusha,
On the steep, sharp bank of the river.
Softly, softly, she walked along,
And remembering, she burst into song
About the blue-colored eagle, so brave and so strong.
About the one she is waiting for,
About the one whose letters she reads again and again.
Eagle, remember the simple girl,
Pilot, remember your promise so true.
Guard and defend the native soil
And Katyusha will be faithful to you!

(Song popular in Russia circa WWII, trans. Chaim Shapiro)
Artillery men! Stalin gave the order!
Artillery men! The Fatherland is calling upon us!
From a hundred thousand batteries,
For the tears of our mothers!
For our Fatherland!
Fire upon the enemy!

(Russian military song from WWII era, trans. Chaim Shapiro)
Sounds like Russian disinformation...

@Randomex  Are you in the process of reading "Go My Son"?
Small people talk about other people.
Average people talk about things

No, I just wanted to post those. I might also post "Wide Is My Native Country," having just discovered
that I can see page 30 on Google Books (my family's copy is missing everything before page 31), and
perhaps the then-new national anthem (both of which are most definitely Russian disinformation).

The asterisk in my current signature is because I had to modify the quotation to make it fit the signature size limit.

The way I work things like this, and this is why I will never amount to
anything in my life, is I have those ideas, and then I get very focused
on something like, "Well, what would the font I use be?" - Dan Hughes

I used to think I didn't like music, but in actual fact,
I just don't like '80s music, and I grew up in the '80s.
 - Dan Hughes

(Not one of the Dan Hughes that you find by casually Googling.
His Twitter handle is dghughes28, but it's deactivated at the moment.)

There are patterns emerging in this thread which is detracting from the original allure of the randomness, or in other words

It's shtering the randomness

Guess this will be the new aesthetic images thread?
