  9:34am nurangiz:

Hey, this is awesome being here! Comments here from all over Russia. Loving the story about James Hetfield:)
  9:34am el_coyote (Кайот):

Don't kill our bears!
  9:35am Cecile:

From an interview on MTV:

James Hetfield: I had quit drinking for a while and didn't find God or whatever I was looking for, so I decided to go back to drinking, and I kind of peaked when I was in Russia on this insane hunting trip. I was in the middle of nowhere in Siberia hunting bears, and I was staying in this chicken shack with these Russians and they all have AK-47s and vodka. We are stuck there in four feet of snow so we started drinking vodka — there was nothing to do for a week but sit there and drink. When I came home the behavior continued and it just spun out of control. It was ripping my family apart and there were some ultimatums about being thrown out of the house. It took that for me to realize what a problem it was.

So I had to go away. And I was really afraid to go away, not knowing what would happen to me, not knowing what would happen to Metallica, not knowing how I'd be treated in the press about it.
  9:36am CheriPi:

I can imagine James Hetfield getting a bear done to somehow avenge Thor's taking of Cliff Burton.
  9:36am Cecile:

It is true.
  9:37am нужник Ленина:

хлеба weenie (препона)!
  9:37am Cecile:

CheriPi, I like how you think. RIP Cliff.
  9:37am Ghengis Jung:

Клифф-ет 'все!
  9:37am weiterso:

Moskau, Moskau, Wodka trinkt man pur und kalt,
das macht hundert Jahre alt, ho, ho, ho, ho, ho! Hej!
  9:38am iness:

до 12-ти?????
  9:39am CheriPi:

Cecile, Carpathian black ice is no place for a California boy. RIP!
  9:42am Cecile:

  9:43am Eldar:

Ben hello )))
  9:45am el_coyote (Кайот):

no! to 12 am at nyc time. and to 8pm at moscow.
  9:45am Ne-guh-tor:

James Hetfield is such a douche.
  9:46am Bw:

Hello eldar! Wasn't dima's story great - he is the future
of Russian free form
  9:46am Cecile:

Yes, that too.
I still follow Metallica, because they make me laugh. Unintentionally, but I'll take it.

They've never been the same without Cliff.
  9:47am annie:

this is waaay too much for me this am, so i'll be over there on the bench. good morning, though
  9:48am Cecile:

hiya, annie!
  9:48am Victor:

  9:49am Ne-guh-tor:

  9:51am Skirkie:

So how does this radio conference thing last?
  9:53am Ne-guh-tor:

Free you mind and your ass will follow, James Hetfield.
  9:54am PKNY:

  9:54am James Hetfield:

Oh. I thought it was the other way around. That makes more sense how you say it.

I am a big silly!
  9:55am annie:

  9:58am sergio:

  10:24am Ken:

Everybody I've met is HORRIFIED that i like tATu . But I'm gonna meet a woman who made a documentary about them, and I met an actress who did voice work for the unreleased You and I film...
  10:29am Ne-guh-tor:

Dangerously close. No surprise most would not like them. Their love was frowned upon!
  10:30am Ken From Hyde Park:

Today in Russian history - By the way, this morning in the Poughkeepsie area, the 90.1 FM signal was overcome by WUFT from Gainesville, Florida. Something similar happened a couple of years ago. That's a lot of ionosphere to skip over (under?).
  10:30am Laura L:

Sounds like the reaction you get in Germany if you say you enjoy music by Heino! Different, you know, but just horrifying to most Germans!
