  • Pussy Riot members to be released from jail ahead of schedule

    ...along with 30 Greenpeace activists. I guess holding the Olympics in Russia has some fringe benefits


    BTW the "A Punk Prayer" documentary on ******************** Riot (it shows on HBO from time to time IIRC) is pretty interesting. It walks the fine line between showing that ******************** Riot were actually pretty obnoxious on some levels along with the heavy-handed way the Russian government dealt with the situation.

    Putin's Stalinism Lite is profoundly worrisome. It looks like he and his cohort have been laying the foundation for a return to old style Russian quasi-fascistic dictatorship. The foot in the boot changes. But it stays on the throat of the people. (To paraphrase an old expression.)

    The chorus seems a little weak... I think it needs more lasers.

        Yes, you do...it's very interesting. It seems like it was pretty even-handed, pretty much just laying it all out and letting viewers decide what they thought of both the group and the way their case was handled.


        Here's a link for more info.
