Dear friend,
As a child I'd look out the jumbo jet window
at 37,000 feet into infinite eternity while listening to
onboard music, never tired of constant changing,
beyond beautiful, compelling clouds, oceans,
views, melodies. It felt the closest thing to another
dimension or spiritual world. Jet lag, memories,
people, far away lands intensified the nostalgia.
Thus began my love & desire to create & contribute
something sensual & enjoyable.
Obstacles plague the task. 3rd parties,
censorship, ethics, politics, legal loopholes etc. limit
free expression & artistic integrity. Against the odds
we persevere in quest for content & contacts,
unpredictably discovering, working & evolving art &
craft. Giving your best shot, enjoying the journey
& result is victory in itself. Have a productive,
pleasant, balanced life, thank you for your time
with l㋡!e geogodley

neglected injured pet with hole in head,
Sochi, Russia sep 2001. should have called
a vet.. but they'd probably kill him/ her.
INTRO

Sochi, Russia. First visit. I'm psyched after Aeroflot Moscow delays. We suffer extreme heat
a hard working summer recording original with no air con or ventillation in this old beaten
classic songs like "I'm a stud" & "Talkin 2 u". up disheveled obsolete russian aircraft for 2
Blew a lifetime & fortune on that, time to enjoy hours off the runway & a 4 hour flight. I sweat my
my birthday vacation. ass off, it's horrible. Sauna toning.

My friend Haik meets me after a dangerous


unpleasant 48 hour train ride from Armenia
thru the volatile Caucasus. He was terrorized I do upside down pushups to stay in shape since
by boarder officials & slept in cockroach we don't know where the gym is yet. but we're
infested Vladikavkaz dumps. really here for another type of exercise..

We laugh of the cab driver overcharging me the women are so beautiful and friendly! Russia
as he talked his price down from $50 to $5. I has many republics of various ethnicities &
chose the elderly driver cause less chance of looks! Some european, most are thin cause the
crime from a kindly granpa. food’s bland, great to lose weight. ©geogodley

At a hotel pool I met 2 beautiful chechen We walked in lush smog polluted gardens.
sisters. They were very nice but said people Thrilled to have such wonderful company but
know not to mess with Chechens. remembered how severe they may be

Hotel Zviozny.. because Zhemchuzhina was


full.. lucky to get a room without reservation
but it's like a mausuleum.. centrally located. see ladies out the window..

run down.. and meet them.. ©geogodley


Near Zhemchuzhina hotel, a great Uzbek
restaurant guaranteed delicious meals nice people & atmosphere

Ever since Kyrgystan, I love plov, a savoury


paella style pilaf rice with vegeatables, raisins
& spices. Never found those flavors again "% big bayram, seta sam " ", an exotic ethnic
anywhere till now. hope it's not all sugar.. easy listening song i liked & recorded

kept bumping into some friendly moscovite and her friend, verry nice but.. ©geogodley
SURPRISE DATE

then it happened across an uncrowded room..


dusk.. i'm here for a lil' romance, not just the she gave me the eye, or just a friendly smile to
friend zone.. limited time was running out for a.. the camera

so did the waitress

are you sure you want her?

i was cracking up, couldn't believe it.. women


Haik went up to their table & said some russian are usually hard work.. yet here everything
stuff since i couldn't was like a wonderful dream.. just like that
©geogodley
Haik was such a good sport hangin out with the what a connection. Fantastic, natural, no
other friend he wasn't that attracted to.. hassle, how it should be.

Almost didn't bring her back to my place


she was so cool with the camera & let me lick because of preconceived notions of what's
her hand.. on vide$ acceptable.. but why waste time?

so nature took its course with foot kissing while Haik was stuck.. where could he go?
foreplay warmup in the tv living room area she was on his bed- the couch! ©geogodley
SOCHI SOCIAL

aw! the lovebirds finally connect, we have a


luurve connection, how cuute.. shoulda kept the We awake to the delightful sewage cesspool
camera rolling.. but you know how ladies are..! hotel side view..

& hot ladies working in the area grateful &


appreciative to meet you.. wanted to talk with the receptionist beauty

but as usual the less attractive one she winked at us while being forced to walk
cockblocks / cnutblocks & tells her to go away, away. at least she likes us, will have to find out
pointing her finger. Obstacles & conflicts as ever. when she finishes work, no easy task ©geogodley
..and awkward to ask in front of her boss.. so we hit the beach with local hotties I liked but
employees aren't allowed to fraternize with Haik said they looked disgusting "like his
guests, if it's you. grandmother after death"

Haik said she looked 10 but she said 20. As


most people here, she didn't know any english
this cutie was free after working on the so i spoke a few russian words & made
boardwalk promenade charade gestures.

& many gave telephone numbers. they weren't


mean & snobby like in 'developed' western
even without english they were polite countries.. wonder why. ©geogodley
some Radisson hotel restaurant model type
gave my camera dirty looks. gotcha! he's doing as were we, bringing random new friends to
well.. how bout a threesome folks? the suite & doing the footsy thing..

within reason though.. Haik said i could do


everything tonight, not wait till tomorrow! but
cheers! I must say these russian ladies are way when they realized he was pretending not to
friendlier that ya'll. why? environment, history, speak russian because they prefer
culture, economy, upbringing, personality, d.n.a? foreigners, they left..

overcast weather & smog from lack of


Next days we'd socialize in town on our walk to catalytic converters but friendly people made
the bus stops or Zhemchuzhina beach. it worthwhile ©geogodley
communicating with a handful of russian
had a crush on a circ-ass-ian brunette so went words to arrange a date after work or
to her store to say hi & ask her out.. when-never

her erotic face, back to the ol' drawing board for more
luscious lips, dates.. hi how ya doin..
succulent
mouth & huge
teeth were the
ultimate wet
dream..

but when i
called her she
said "ya
mussulman"
implying her
religion
forbade her to
do whatever.
next..

oh-oh

couldn't take my lens off this gorgeous georgian


-would she freak at camera? friend or foe? ©geogodley
hey ladies what club is
good tonight?

surprisingly, she wasn't a snob either! got her #

like a kid in a candy store bumblebee buzzes off

sorry we don't speak english

to the next flower ! ©geogodley


so how you doin, good to
BURNING BRIDGES blablablabla (unintelligible)
see ya. whatchu doin later?

Haik antagonized her, argued, ruined the


mood & messed it up.. she stopped talking.

what do you mean you like those guys, do


you realise what they do?

so sometimes i may be better off without him.. best way to prevent a confict is avoid it

©geogodley
DEATH DETAINMENT

On my birthday by the beach there was a loud


gunshot, screams, a panicked crowd, then
calm. someone was lying on the ground..

security spotted my camera

they tried C.P.R on him to no avail..

everyone saw the incident & ran away to avoid


being taken to the police station. yet we saw
nothing & were unecessarily detained because
of my video.

Cause of death was heart attack by firing


blanks in a backgammᄔn gamble dispute ©geogodley
big mistake to hang around, shoulda left too instead of discussing & pondering
mortality in the melancholic sunset.

the police took us to the station for 4 hours of


interrogation & video confiscation. They
wanted the original which meant losing all
other footage so we cloned it & gave a copy.
Ruined our night, but anything to help, r.i.p.

BIRTHDAY BASH

by some miracle my girlfriend saved the day after the most happening outdoor club everyone
midnight and we celebrated by going to talks about.

pina coladas, chillled beer pints, great company despite free speech distractions.. ©geogodley
luckily she was cool & didn't mind me interacting after all, it's not like we were doing anything
with the 'crowd' unlike others untoward although it was tempting

loud clubs.. guaranteed to


limit & kill free speech..

ogling the talent, not that you could see or hear


anything in the dark noise anyway

Q.E.D. they were like deaf n dumb


aliens on another planet

©geogodley
quite liked her but Haik said she was ugly &
cliquey ignoring everyone around them not worth worrying about

not that his taste in women ever coincided with


mine.. as he screamed through the racket good night

we stumble drunk, take a cab & enjoy a wonderful evening. what a sight!
much better than any painting !

©geogodley
SOCHI STREET SOCIAL
xcuse me is the
beach that way?

top o th' mornin 2 u like

observe the definitive technique: act like you're then discreetly look at face to see if she's worth
not interested in case they're not in the mood or the hassle, like this dagestani lookin guy does
don't like you

why bother.. we had a nice afternoon with the the non english menus..

ZHEMCHUZHINA HOTEL the balcony view's worth it..

Finally there's rooms in Zhemchuzhina but you


gotta pay everything upfront & lose it all if you
cancel, 100% cancellation fee at any time, and
it's always full so you can't extend your stay.

right on the beach

looks like a nuclear war, dirt, rocks & cement, a


far cry from miami.. but that never st$pped us

unecessary 'esc㋡rt' cards on door.. slow night


so far it's been an
exciting, romantic trip. huh ladies.. service ain't required, you're fired!

©geogodley
Then i was blown away by another.. GORGEOUS GEORGIAN

how' m i going to
get near
ho that.. bet
she'swtoo difficult..

sure enough, despite the smile, no phone number.

©geogodley
she walked away never tᄔ be seen again.

i got her number by telling


her you're a producer who
will improve her life!

but when we phone a few times she says she


doesn't like all these calls & can't meet.

hi, colonel's daughter Haik was getting close with someone he met
at the railway station

©geogodley
..until she spotted the camera & backed off

the colonel's daughter didn't.. neither did my first girlfriend, yet..

our balcony views provided mnoga viewing pleasurova

©geogodley
Radisson hotel provided proper salad & meals

but was too high up to catch them in time.. they


disapeared like roaches in cracks

i gladly offered him room & floorboard, even if


Haik didn't want us to pay too much for his food his 'avant garde' unwatchable shaky camera
so he'd go elsewhere 'technique' ruined most of the videos.

meet the parents.. with threatening bulldog frown 2 belarussians showed up & hung out
