Simply "Yay!" :)


Unique opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes view of independent film distribution

Boys and girls :) ,

Thought it could be interesting for those who like independent movies, and wants to help out. Have teenagers/college kids interested in the field? Might be a great way for them to get a glimpse of what happens to a Sundance independent film once it's gets out there!

Please contact Angela directly. You can mention my name.
Dear friends of MY PERESTROIKA,

Do you want to have a unique opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes view of independent film distribution with the production team of the acclaimed Sundance documentary film, MY PERESTROIKA?

(If you haven't seen the film yet, you can get a peek at photos, reviews and a clip on the website www.myperestroika.com)

MY PERESTROIKA will be released in New York on March 23rd, at the IFC Center in Greenwich Village.

Because of this exciting release, we are seeking a few volunteers to help us out, as of March 1st for 2-3 weeks in advance of our theatrical run. Some volunteers can even help out remotely, only coming in to our office for a fun pizza & strategy meeting once a week with the film team and director.

If you are interested in joining us, please send an email to angela.myperestroika@gmail.com

If you know anyone who might be interested in helping, please forward this message to them.
What We'll Be Doing:
*Contacting bloggers/meet up groups/list-serves
*Promoting the film through various social networks (Twitter, Facebook, Live Journal, Vkontakte etc)
*Bringing posters and flyers to venues all over the city - some in Russian neighborhoods
Helpful Skills:
*Experience with WordPress, Twitter and Facebook, Vkontakte, Linked In, Live Journal, Odnoklassniki
*Knowledge of Russian a big plus though not a requirement.
Thanks! (Спасибо!)

Ayelet Galena needs our help!

"1 year old Ayelet Yakira Galena,was diagnosed with a rare bone marrow failure disorder and will need a bone marrow transplant. Ayelet's parents, Seth Galena and Hindy Poupko have begun the process of finding a perfect match for Ayelet and they need our help. "

I am very sorry for little Ayelet and her parents. Let's try to help!
I am already in the registry.
In addition, for the month of March I will donate $54 for every reality check session with those who want to support Ayelet. Just mention Ayelet when you register and I will make a donation in your honor.
$54 donation will cover the cost of a single test.

Whatever's worse...

Only one thing could be worse than someone, with nothing to say, talking non-stop - someone, with a lot to say, keeping silence...

Words create confusion...

Words create confusion, numbers do it even faster and way more convincing, but nothing better has been invented yet :)

On Meetup 57, My Perestroika - a preview

Today, or rather yesterday, we had an annual Meetup 57 - the reunion of 57 alumni in NYC. Big thank you to Sasha and Volodya for organizing!.

Thank you all for coming! For the sake of those who did not make it and fans and supporters of 57 - more about the reunion will come later.

We had a privilege to host Robin Hessman, the director of "My Perestroika". “My Perestroika” is an amazing Film - an official selection of Sundance, New York New directors, winner of full frame festivals and many other awards. The film is a must see for everybody, who has any connection or interest in Russia and Russians. Yes, I can be opinionated at times - and this is my opinion.

The film will show in NYC , starting March 23 at the IFC. If you are planning to go - give me a shout!

More coming soon – stay tuned!

Thou shalt not covet ...

...thy neighbor’s free professional advice that is.

How many times were you asked for a professional advice or a "little favor" - at a party, in a casual conversation with a stranger or an acquaintance or their brother? "So how would you go about ... XYZ?", "Would you mind looking over my business plan?", "Oh, this reality check you are doing is such a great idea - so let me tell you about my situation...."

Have you been there? I know a ton of people who play along. They feel regret and resentment, yet they do allow others to steal their goods (well, services) !

So, what can you do? What do you say in those cases?

These and other business 'No' related questions will be addressed in one of the Confidantency series workbooks. Stay tuned!

Thou shalt not recommend :)
