Not Disney today, but I think you’ll forgive me, because this woman is amazing.  This is tagged under foreign disney since it’s in the same spirit as the Disney songs I post, but of course this movie was not made by Disney.

Ofra Haza performed the part of Moses’ mother in the song ‘Deliver Us' in 17 languages for the release of 'Prince of Egypt’, because she is a flawless badass.  Because it’s her native tongue, and the language the song would have performed in where these people actually singing, I am particularly enchanted with the Hebrew version (Hoshia na)

There was never a soundtrack release, so this is audio ripped from the movie, but it doesn’t diminish Ofra Haza being fucking amazing. This is intense and beautiful and you should listen to it.   What gets me the most, honestly is her single super powerful ‘Hoshia na’ near the end.

This town in Russia is called Zheleznogorsk.

Their flag and coat of arms is a bear splitting the atom.

That is all.

*kicks down door, knocks over end table, vase crashes to the floor*

No that is NOT all, because Zheleznogorsk is really interesting.

It was a secret city, established in 1950 in the middle of Nowhere, Siberia for the purpose of researching nuclear weaponry and producing massive quantities of plutonium, the facilities for which were hidden inside a hollowed-out mountain. It appeared on no maps, and had no census data. Although more than 100,000 people lived there at one point, satellite imagery would have shown only a fairly small mining town. The mountain complex contained 3,500 rooms and three plutonium reactors, which were kept cool by one of the mightiest river in Siberia. The space had been excavated by tens of thousands of gulag slave laborers, who removed more rock from inside the mountain than was used to build the Great Pyramids. Protected under the granite peak of the mountain, these facilities would survive a direct nuclear attack.

No one called it “Zheleznogorsk.” Officially, it was “Krasnoyarsk-26,” which is something like naming a city ‘Arizona-17.’ Residents traveling outside the city called it Iron Town, if they had to refer to it at all. They were under strict instructions never to reveal to anyone the actual business of Krasnoyarsk-26. 

And life there was fantastic. People living and working in the secret city received some of the best wages in the Soviet Union. There were sports stadiums, public gardens, a movie theater, and the shortages notorious in the rest of the USSR were unknown. The best nuclear scientists in Russia lived in a sealed-off utopia. 

A third of all the nuclear weapons produced in Russia during the Cold War were powered by fuel from Zheleznogorsk. At the time, the image of the great Russian bear ripping an atom apart wouldn’t have seemed very funny at all.

alright so we all know that I’m clueless when it comes to film photography? yeah.

These photos are what happen when you don’t wind the film correctly, tear the film, (that black triangle) then decide to remove it and place it back in its canister by the glow of a red night light. CVS took pity on me and developed them for free.
