The English version of “Plaschik” will not just be made in future – it but already exists and is waiting for its day (all the “lip-singing” scenes were shot both in Russian and English). The English lyrics are not the literal translation of the original Russian lyrics in “Plaschik” – in fact, it’s quite different this time and, in my opinion, they fit the picture even better – open door for dead man walking…
Elle Girl: What is your new album about? Waste Management – sounds anti-glamorous.
Lena: It’s kind of a part two of “Ludi-Invalidi”, our second album. We explained it many times that we call ludi invalidi all these cruel and mean human beings. And “waste” in new album’s name is the result of ludi invalidi’s activity…

I’ve been waiting since the announcement of this song as the next single to get my hands on the video an scrutinize it. To nobody's surprise, less than five hours after the release of Beliy Plaschik, I could hardly contain myself to critique the new video…
What is there to say about Beliy Plaschik? - To tell the truth, there’s quite a lot. t.A.T.u. create a deep, soulful video full of haunting bliss with a sophisticated message about violence and lack of compassion in humanity. A genuine t.A.T.u. message, presented in – as always. The best way possible. Simply t.A.T.u.
Please remember that this is not an official summary of the video, but Tim’s analysis of the video as a fan. We have no detailed information on what the true meaning of Beliy Plaschik is from t.A.T.u. or their management. Thank you.
I’m drawing with black paint A dumb word on the wall This word is not important for me This word is not new for you It’s vain for me It’s necessary for you I’m drawing with black paint This drawing is very messy
Here is the video of “Beliy Plaschik”, the pre-single from t.A.T.u.’s upcoming album “Upravlenie Otbrosami” that aired earlier today on MTV Russia. It has two versions: HQ and LQ.

In the clip we finally get to hear the chorus we’ve long been waiting for! We also get a better look inside the environment of the Beliy Plaschik video; a cell of some type and a grim corridor. You can view the clip below, and discuss it in the forums here. (Note: You must be a member to discuss).

New information from tatu.ru
Beliy Plaschik (White Robe) is the first single for the new t.A.T.u. studio album Upravleniye Otbrosami (Waste Management) planned to come out on December 25, 2007.
November, 29 this video gets into MTV Russia exclusive rotation.
The short clip of Beliy Plashik was removed from rutube.ru and the official t.A.T.u. forums, and it was only appropriate for us to remove it as well. Now, we’ve uploaded 7 new photos to the gallery from the making-of the video. Thanks to swetatumanka (tatu.ru).
t.A.T.u.’s new LP “Waste Management” comes out on Christmas. It was recorded mostly in America, then partially in Moscow, and then dubbed in London. But these are not the most important things now. The most important is the fact that Yulia will have a boy in two months…
Well, kids, we’re done. Rock-n-Roll starts. This last week the whole t.A.T.u. back office had 4-5 hours of sleep daily, but we did it.
November, 29 the video Beliy Plaschik (White Robe) will be aired on MTV Russia. And then – 2 weeks of exclusive, meaning, super heavy rotation (the trailer will be out November, 27). Faint-hearted fans are urged to get some tranquilizers and watch it only when lying on some bed. Guys, it’s a kickass.

Part 2 of our previously mentioned new content. We’ve got our hands on 8 exclusive HQs from OK! Magazine’s “The best party of the year” that t.A.T.u. recently attended on November 9th in Russia (see the original post).

Hey guys, I apologize for the lack of updates recently. I’ve been busy with personal business and haven’t added any new HQs to my collection. But now I’ve planned some new content for everybody, and part 1 is new layouts for the gallery and the forum. If you have any problems or want to report an error, email me and Lauren.
Gallery Update: OK! «The Best Party of the Year 2007»
t.A.T.u. were seen in Russia for OK! Magazine’s “The best party of the year” for 2007. The girls recently did an exclusive photoshoot and interview for the Russian magazine. No further information has been given about their attendance. Thanks Limas (tatu.ru) for the news.
t.A.T.u. Made it to MAXIM's Top 100 Sexiest Women of Russia
# 15 - Julia Volkova
We love pretty risk takers, who're afraid of nothing and who can't be stopped by anything. t.A.T.u. had absolutely no tattoos before we suggested them to make one. Yulia immediately agreed. Mind you, it was not a temporary picture, but a permanent one. Yulia wanted an Arabic word and she got it. And only when the tattoo was done, Yulia asked, "And what does it mean?"
# 53 - Lena Katina
t.A.T.u. girl has grown up and changed from charming red-hair curly into a real sexy diva. We're no big experts in singing, but a singer with such a size definitely has a great future. Just don't hide the beauty generously given by nature!

Gallery Update: Exclusive HQ Articles
Angie recently uploaded articles to our gallery in celebration of her return to AML. The articles are in German, Spanish, English and French. They were scanned by her months ago, but we had difficulty categorizing them on our previous “Articles” page due to the difference in sizes. All of my previous article scans (and some new ones) will be uploaded in the gallery as well, soon…
Her message: “I thought I’d post some goodies to celebrate my return to teh intarnetz (yaay me!). :] Various German, Spanish, English, and French HQ articles, scanned by yours truly. Enjoy! :D”

OK! magazine transcript & translation
Source: tatysite.net Transcript by nfne Translation by Argos
We met in a chinese restaurant at the Kutusovskij prospekt. Yulya and Lena came by after an exhausting photosession and ordered chicken with cashews. Together with Yulya her lover Parviz. In two months they will have a child, and approximately at the end of December t.A.T.u. plan to release their third album “Upravlenie otbrosami”. Besides this OK! talked with the girls about much more…
t.A.T.u. are in the new edition of OK! Magazine Russia, featuring a new photoshoot. Julia shows off her very pregnant belly (she’s due next month!) and Lena with her hot new style. The magazine is out now. If you live in Russia, you can’t miss out on this. EDIT: Added HQ scans by Karrek (tatu.ru), we owe you one! EDIT2: Find tatu.ru scans, including the magazine cover here.
Guys Thank you to everybody for your words on my birthday. I’ve read them all. And really appreciated them. I was even close to crying at some moments – there’s so little sincerity in our world and here are all these nice, touching and honest wishes – and all for me. Thank you to every-every-everybody! I’m really so happy for Yulka, and thanks God she’s feeling good! And she’s so happy – my heart is just full of feelings for her! I’ve been quite often to theatres recently. If anybody cares for an opinion – I really liked the play “Russian Jam” at Contemporary Play Theatre. You know that we’ve shot an awesome video. I hope you’ll like it! Don’t get down because of this little pause. Our songs and videos can’t come out fast. Now when I have a little bit of free time before we release our albums, I want to start learning Spanish – maybe I’ll remember something! We are with you! And you are with us! Ciao! Lena
