9 new avatars

I was going through my photobucket and spotted some avatars I had custom made for me a long time ago. I forgot who made them, but once I found out, I'll be sure to credit them. Now we have over 250 avatars! (but soon we will do some 'summer cleaning').

Lena's diary

Source: Tatu.Ru

Hi, guys! Look... Some time ago a dog came to our dacha and decided to stay. Of course, a homeless dog, no breed. And she recently had some fun somewhere - and now we have a whole family. Eight puppies were born. So little, so pretty, so funny. Five, unfortunately, died the day they were born. And three are now living with us. The helathiest, so to speak - they passed natural selection. What to do with these three girls - I have no idea. It is a pity to give them away, but six dogs is too much for us. Therefore I'm asking you for help. I'll give them to caring, responsible and kind people, who look for a real friend. Puppies are faithfull, clever, strong. They are 2,5 months old, in a week they will have all necessary injections. I asked to post some photos of them. Who'll take one?...


Dear friends, if you decided to take one of the puppies, please write us a letter at info@tatu.ru with a subject Puppies. Lena will choose several people...

who will be invited to see the cuties and take one home. The pictures of the puppies are here.

Please, note, that this is only for those living in Moscow or close to Moscow.

Picture & report of Gay Parade

Thanks netute for the great photo!

Yulia Volkova and Lena Katina of the Russian pop group Tatu also briefly appeared the demonstration, but quickly left as their car was pelted with eggs. The all-girl band has attracted worldwide attention in recent years with suggestive performances though the singers have said they are not lesbians.

t.A.T.u. about gay community

Source: Tatu.ru

Dear friends!

We are addressing gay community in Russia and in the rest of the world in relation to Gay Parade being organized in Moscow on May, 26-27.

We’re now in Los Angeles recording the new album. As always, our music will be about people and standing for people, about love and standing for love. We think that every person should express his or her love to another person in the way these two people wish, and no third parties may interfere with their dogmas. We are supporting people disregarding their sexual orientation or any other differences.

When t.A.T.u.’s second album came out, many of our fans of alternative sexual orientation thought that we lied and betrayed them. This is not true! We’ve never done that and we’ve always advocated love without boundaries.

We will really try to take a time-out in recording and come to Moscow to support you.

Julia and Lena, t.A.T.u.

No club show

The information about t.A.T.u. show on May, 26 in German club "Adrenalin - Nachtpalast" is not true. Advertising campaign organized by the club is disinformation of the fans.

G'day from Australia!!! @ 9:25 PM EST
G'day Guys,

A huge G'DAY from AustraliaExclamation
Yes, I just landed in Melbourne Australia and its great to be home!
Its been over 2.5 years since I've been back to Australia. Dam I miss it!
I was starting to loose my Aussie accent! hehehe Only joking.
Going to be catching up with a lot of old friends and heading back to Traralgon, my home town, where I grew up. My old stomping ground! Where it all began!
Anyway I'm home for a little bit and very excited to catch up with family and friends. A few beers will be drank my friends!

So I guess most of you know by now that we didn't go to Egypt.
The show was cancelled last minute. But I have been told we will get there later this year. Fingers crossed!
So after my little catch up time here in OZ, I'll fly back to LA to continue working on my album and Tatu's.
I think Julia & Lena get back to LA soon to continue recording vocals too. No more news that end guys. But l'm looking forward to throwing down my guitar parts and bringing the ROCK to this album!

Really excited to get out and play some shows in LA.
Still waiting to hear news on those shows, but hopefully soon.
Thanks guys for all the support and e-mails.
Keep them coming! www.myspace.com/Troymaccubbinmusic
I will be releasing some other exciting things very soon too, before my album.
Can't say too much, just keep checking in.
Must run!
Talk soon guys!
More pics to come too!

Stay safe
Good on ya!

New Lena diary entry

Source: Tatu.ru

Well, I can say both hello and goodbye! We’re on the way to the airport. After some time spent at home going back to the States to continue the work on the album. By the way, sometimes, when I start writing to you, I get this “empty head” thing… And the day before I was full of things to write about! Now it’s the same – what shall I write? About Pashtet? He’s the same. Lives his happy life. About Anatoliy? Everything’s also good. Love and roses and so on June, 6 he turns 25! Anniversary! (Hopefully, I’ll be back by then!) About me? You know almost everything. So this time let’s do it this way – write somewhere on the forum your questions, and me and Julia will answer them in a week. Volchitsa took her lap-top with her!

Wish us luck. We’re doing our best.
Kisses on cheeks,
