The newest version of my English musicology guide is ready for download

Here's a link to download the newest version of the file:


Here's a small text file that has some information about some of the changes that have been made since the previous version:


This is very long and complex reference guide about English music that is designed to be used with keyword searches. This makes it easier to explore.

My writing is specifically designed for English learners. It also includes a lot of information about learning English, movies, television series and other things. It's mainly intended for people who have already reached an intermediate level of English reading skill. However, even a person with very basic English reading skills could find many interesting things if they use internet translation tools to view and analyze my writing.

It's basically a mixture of reading practice and listening practice, plus some analysis and recommendations about how to use English in your life (so that your English skills will improve from practicing) and also cultural studies.

Note: I deleted all of my previous posts in this Livejournal community because they weren't serving a purpose anymore.

at/on ... metro station

Добрый день! Подскажите, допустим ли вариант 'on' в предложениях типа «It's located on Mayakovskaya metro station». В интернете нахожу только at...может не так смотрю?

летний гном-алкаш
Смотрю фильм Оливера Стоуна "JFK". Недоброжелатель Кеннеди Гай Банистер, после убийства президента, пьет и говорит со своим помощником. В начале все понятно: "гад Кеннеди, вот что бывает, когда негроевреекатоликам дают волю и т.д." А потом загадочный (для меня) тост произносит:

Нere is to the new frontier! Camelot is smithereens!

Как это правильно перевести и что сие означает? Я переводил со слуха, но, по-моему, все расслышал правильно. Если все же неправильно, поправьте, плиз.
