Your Letters

Dear Editor,

Is this guy Vlad for real or is his blog just being satirical? His "argument" is so ridiculous that he sounds like an 8th grader on the playground in a "my dad is tougher than yours" shouting match. Anyways, he is big man for writing those blogs without any contact email.. very brave!

James Bennett

Dear Mr. Bennett, The main thing is that Vlad didn't bother you at all. Nope, not one iota! You've got us fooled with your letter, and if you've got us fooled, then you've probably got Vlad stymied by now. Sorry about that. Obviously we have no choice but to cancel the blog. Seeing as it's ridiculous and all.


Dear Editor,

Ok, I want to start by saying I can enjoy listening to an arrogant, ignorant, and naive Russian spout anti-American insults as well as anyone. As a matter of fact I kind of like it. I enjoy getting Nashi members wound up and watching them go. I like listening to racist Babushkas at the bus stop talk about all the bad foreigners are ruining the nation. thanks


Dear Mr. Marc, James Bennett replies, "Hey man, you and I really think alike. Vlad's column totally didn't interest me at all, which is why I also wrote a letter. I really like how you mention GG Allen's name. It really lets the eXile know that you're cool and tough and you really don't get bothered by things, because you know GG Allen, that guy was totally on the edge, man. Hey, I got an idea: Let's you and me get together with all the other readers who are bored by Vlad's blog and we'll form like a support group, yeah? Because seriously, it's dumb and it's…oh god. Waah-haa-haa! I can't hide it anymore, Marc. Please hold me! Waah-haa-haa! I want my mommie! Waaahhhh!!"


Dear Mr. Ames/eXile.

["Fucking For Medvedev" blog entry, March 2, 2008.] Great! You Russians're just the best! You definitely are willing to go into the (some sort of) extremes! This kinda "system" ought to be used in every presidential election all over the world! But I surely wouldn't endorse them very candidates to use this same tactic. I guess I'm all too much an aesthetic of it all. Just think about it: Barbara Bush and Boris Yeltsin doing a campaign like this one. Gives me cold shivers to even think about it!

All the best,


Dear Ilona, Correct us if we're wrong, but what you're trying to say to us is, basically, that you'd be willing to put out for one of the editors in exchange for, say, a Caesar Salad at Krisis Zhanra, and two glasses of house wine? You'll pick up the tip and the chicken breast topping? Yeah? Deal!



Nice job, fuckers. I sent you a link to a piece more than a month ago. Since then, no answer, no responce whatsoever. Not even a fucking thankyou. I guess, I will consider canceling my subscription to your paper, since you guys do not ever reply. have a nice one…In case you forgot here is my email I sent:

2008/1/12, Hi Mark,

As a veteran expat in Moscow and a real connoisseur of Russian lifestyle, I believe you will appreciate this masterpiece,1,3830210.story written by a recently appointed Los Angeles Times Moscow Bureau Chief. I would be very interested in knowing what you guys think about this style of journalism - mind you, it is a Column One story! And if you happen to mention this piece in the Exile, please, send me a link to your article.
