Pussy Riot IS a great name for a band.

/Or a porno

Wow. I didn't know about any of this.

There was a Fark thread when they were arrested. Apparently Pussy Riot is whoever goes up there. It isn't actually a band.

I say punish them by making them represent Russia in next year's Eurovision Song Contest. They're bound to be more entertaining than the dancing grannies they sent this year.

Good to see a punk band doing what punk bands are supposed to do, instead of those crappy pseudo-punk Pop artists that embrace part the sound and none of the point.

Then again, punk is kind of a dead-end credo. Might as well get on stage and shoot yourself in the head, and you'd be the best punk act ever. Actually, GG Allin did manage to top that, in a way.

Actually, once someone gets arrested someone gets on stage and takes their place. Most awesome punk ever.

Zamyatin, Bulgakov and Nabokov beg to differ. But I give you Dostoyevsky. There's a reason the only novel anyone finishes by him is Crime and Punishment, maybe The Idiot. But it is traditional to only get partway into The Brothers Karamazov or have good intentions concerning Notes from Underground.

I'm sure "Clam Demonium" is already some roller derby girl's rink name.

Anyway if you all want to be slightly useful at least go to Amnesty International's site and send a message to the prosecutors objecting to their incarceration. They are unquestionably prisoners of conscience (as well as of Putin's and the Russian Orthodox Church's lack thereof).

I like bulgakov. I liked the white guard over master and margarita.

relcec: says the idiot that is somehow blissfully unaware that he was calling for the restriction of political speech on those he disagrees with yesterday if they don't pay federal income taxes.


Asking political organization under the disguise of religion to pay their fair share of taxes != restriction of political speech.

What you're really fighting for is special treatment for churches. At least be honest about it.

Of course the Muscovites are too uptight about something like this.

They wouldn't know fun if it hit them in the back of the head.

I'm fairly liberal (especially for MO standards) and even I knew that was a stupid move.

One of the top rules in marketing: Never piss off your target audience.
