Hmm funny I got msmob on ignore but I can see his post if someone quotes him.  He's still provoking people I see...

Strange that he was so adamant Rod go to Russia first and now that he's going he's turned coattail.

Moscow has many things you can do for free or on the cheap.  Just depends on what you wanna do.  With this weather it's much more preferable to be inside.  I was usually in the Red Square area doing the "tourist" things.

Never the most observant, our Sting ...    You say 'provocation' - I say offering my not inconsiderable - recent - experience ? ...

I 'missed' when I did a volte face...  As you need spoon-feeding... I baulked at LaMan's suggestion of cheapness... Do keep up...

I think this is a cultural divide.  The better half would have found LA Man's statement to be the epitome of rudeness.  I just think it was an offhand statement, based on the OP's posts, nothing to get tied up in knots over.

Well, OP has not had job in at least six months, still unemployed, supposed to be hearing for an interview Ďvery sooní, been using up his savings, moved to a less expensive area? Should I stop?

The OP likes to play music? Correct?
What does he do for a proper job? ;D :tmi: :devil:

These are things I would do, which I don't consider "touristy":


1.  Visit the Tretyakov Gallery.
2.  Go to the ballet.
3.  Go to the opera.
4.  Look for live performances when there.


If the girl purchases tickets, they will cost less, as these events are all subsidized for Russians.

You may speak and write English extremely well, Rod, but you're not a native speaker, so I'll excuse you not "getting" Jay's humour!  That's a pretty standard riposte to ANYONE who has a job that you don't consider a job because they love it so much (most professional sportspeople are also in that category).

As for the "getting laid" bit - I think his girlfriend would have more than a bit to say about that!  :cluebat:

Erm, with all due respect, I think you got the story off mark. Don't think he turned coattail at all.

Thanks, Kyn ...   

I've ALWAYS told Rod he needed to prove a relationship and meet her

..and by the way .. ( not aimed at Kyn or Sting - Rod's not just a talented musician

Yes, but purchasing is only one step in  the process.

I had several experiences in Russia where a Russian purchased the tickets . . . but I was turned away when presenting the ticket at the entrance and told (via my Russian friends) to go back and buy 'foreigner' ticket.

This happened even when I was with two or more Russians who tried their best to 'camouflage' me.

That had nothing to do with being a native speaker or not.
You don't think that same lame-ass joke exists everywhere, no matter what language you speak? Please.

yeah I'm a native speaker and a musician...seemed to be a dig at us musicians to get a real job!  Could just be an Aussie thing too. I met "heaps" of dem traveling and tons come to Canada to work abroad. They are laid back cool peoples but can be a bit rowdy haha

Hi Rod

You will be arriving just after Moscow had it's biggest snowfall since records began - .5 metres

I have a friend from Cyprus there and he has never seen snow so deep .... he is having trouble getting a flight back

The roads weren't good - but the metro is running smoothly ..

Good luck

Well, for a thread that certainly generated some interest - it has gone very cold

Rod, what happened ?
