Putin gives some folks the Blues

Post  pinhedz on Thu Sep 17, 2015 3:35 pm

Tam Ogen (obviously a made-up name) is possibly the best blues women to come out of Tomsk since WW-II.

I have been unable to find out her real name (Tamara Vladimirovna Ognie ... wha?), but I'm sure it has more than 3 syllables. geek

Tomsk is remarkable for wooden architecture.  The wooden houses are a source of pride for people of Tomsk.

Bugotak is a name derived from the North Turkik root words «пуга» -- meaning "bull," and «таг» -- meaning "mountain."

Bull Mountain is about 60 miles from Novosibirsk (along the Novosibirsk--Novokuznetsk railroad), which shows how far some people will go to be far away from Putin.

OK--her real name is Тамара Устименко (plus a probably 5-syllable patronymic).

Tamara says she likes Tomsk--especially the artistic wooden architecture--but then she lays down this one.

And there are more soul sisters in Tomsk, suggesting an ongoing ferment in the formerly closed cities (these are, of course, the children and grandchildren of nuclear physicists Suspect ).

... many of them have Ukrainian surnames. Shocked

Putin gives the Bashkir tatars the blues. Neutral

Don't let the makeup fool you, Liya's father was Khammat, and she lives in Ufa Bashkortostan.

[She also gives her name backwards scratch ]

As for Skye Tah, she lives in Duisburg, but I'm sure Putin gives her the blues also. bounce
