While there aren’t subtitles on the vids yet, it seems Pussy Riot has taken the footage of them being harassed/assaulted in Sochi and dropped a new music video using it. The video is in your face, very hooliganism-style and I’m super glad they didn’t get their asses beat any harder than they did. I mean, zero ass beatings would be preferable, but it doesn’t seem like that is going to be happening any time soon. Check it out, and then let’s see what happens now that the games are over.
Since Pussy Riot returned to Russia, they’ve been the mouse to Putin’s cat. Being arrested, released, then having Cossacks set on them (as I mentioned earlier today), lots of different outlets have been trying to figure out what’s going on. Esquire got it right. In a scathing piece, they outline exactly why Putin has a shit-eating grin on his face all the damn time. He took $51 Billion of Russia’s money and handed it to his friends, and the world applauded it. Shit man, I’d be smiling.
In case you thought the saga was over, Putin’s Idiocratic Olympics continue with Pussy Riot being attacked by the Cossacks. Yes, the traditional, whip-wielding, horse-riding, xenophobic assholes from the hills of rural Russia, are now doing Putin’s bitch work. This involved whipping & violently attacking the members of Pussy Riot who attempted to protest various dastardly bullshit at Sochi. When the one male member of the Pussy Riot protest team ends up bleeding from the head, you know we’ve entered some terrible territory. (via FACT)
It’s true. There’s a whole bunch of good stuff right there but I won’t spoil the video. It’s only 2 minutes, so if you’re looking for good water cooler conversation, peep it, then yammer about classical music to your heart’s content.
