Sorry, but this is a very sad and private post. It is all about destroying children's dreams. I had one of these situations this morning, while reading, that IVAN REBROFF died. He accompanied my childhood in every shitty musical TV-show by singing traditional russian songs with an opera-like voice, looking like... well... a russian guy on too much vodka (i mean, look at the video-still...). For me, he WAS RUSSIA, and i expected everybody in Russia to look like him, sing songs and dance all day, have a big beard and a statue like a tree and be funny because drinking too much vodka. (remember this was way before Perestoika, so my informations were a bit limited, but still, thinking about it, i was not completely wrong, as i found out deejaying in russian clubs recently...). He was the russian clichè singing on German TV. And of course i thought he was from Russia! Until today (sniff). Truth is: He is actually called Hans Rolf Rippert and he is from...BERLIN SPANDAU (a posh area in Berlin, where also Alec Empire and Die Ärzte come from). This feels like the moment, when i found out, that the Santa Claus was actually my father in a costume... sorry, but today is my sad day of disillusion!
