Spinal Tap (stylized as Spın̈al Tap, with a dotless letter i and a metal umlaut over the n) is a parody band spoofing the style of heavy metal groups. The band first appeared on a 1979 ABC TV sketch comedy pilot called The T.V. Show, starring Rob Reiner. The sketch, actually a mock promotional video for the song "Rock and Roll Nightmare", was written by Reiner and the band, and included songwriter/performer Loudon Wainwright III on keyboards. Later the band became the fictional subject of the 1984 rockumentary/mockumentary film This Is Spinal Tap. The band members are portrayed by Michael McKean (as David St. Hubbins), Christopher Guest (as Nigel Tufnel) and Harry Shearer (as Derek Smalls). This Is Spinal Tap was accompanied by a soundtrack album of the same name. In the years following the film's release, the actors have portrayed the band members at concerts and released music under the Spinal Tap name. Guest, McKean, and Shearer toured in the United States in April and May 2009 and performed as Spinal Tap in a "One Night Only World Tour" on June 30, 2009, at Wembley Arena in London, three days after playing the Glastonbury Festival. Support at Wembley Arena came from the same trio's fictional folk music band The Folksmen.
Camelot is a 1967 American musical comedy-drama film directed by Joshua Logan and starring Richard Harris as King Arthur, Vanessa Redgrave as Guenevere, and Franco Nero as Lancelot. The film is an adaptation of the musical by Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe. Lerner also wrote the screenplay. John F. Kennedy's presidency became inextricably linked to Camelot after his wife, Jacqueline Kennedy, revealed in a Life article following his assassination that it had been one of his favorite records, particularly the lines "Don't let it be forgot/That once there was a spot/For one brief shining moment/that was known as Camelot." Davidson, in The Reel Arthur, notes that there are no true correspondences between Kennedy and Arthurian characters, which was fortunate considering the film centered around an adulterous love triangle. In creating the association between Kennedy’s presidency and Camelot, Jackie Kennedy connected her husband to the hope, goodness, and glamour of Camelot. She wanted her husband to be remembered as "well-meaning, fallibly human but ultimately idealistic," devoted to his country's interests above his own
I made this instrument last winter to use in my own queen bee breeding program which will begin next season once I have all the equipment made, this will include hives and other items needed for the new laboratory. It took me several months to build and perfect at a cost of less than fifty pounds over that time period, made from nickel silver, brass and stainless fitting, the retail cost of something similar is over 5K, so a huge saving for us here which we would never be able to afford otherwise, than making making it myself.

Yuri Entin's gender-bending 1976 "hymn to tolerance" may or may not be the reason why "light blue" (goluboi) is now standard Russian slang for gay. Any resemblance between Incredibly Crafty Cats and Yiannopouloses living or dead is purely coincidental.

Found this version with the English subtitles already in it. This is one of my favorite Russian movies. From 2008 it is set around 1955 in Moscow. It's the story of young people who are freeing themselves from a mind numbing existence with the fashions and music of the American jazz scene. It's a musical about rebellion and growing up in very troubling times. Okay, now the blurb below is what I copied from another site. I hope you enjoy this really well done (GREAT musical numbers) Russian film.
While the Cold War heats up on the world stage, rebellious youth in 1955 Moscow wage a cultural battle against dismal Soviet conformity, donning brightly colored black-market clothing, adopting American nicknames and reveling in forbidden jazz. Straight-laced 20-year-old Communist Mels finds these brazen 'hipsters' shocking until he falls under the spell of one, namely Polly, and joins the new revolution. Soon he's a peacock, cavorting in the latest flashy fashions, sporting an enormous pompadour and wailing on the saxophone.
