I didn't make it to Gogol Bordello's performance yesterday - for a number of reasons (my laziness is just one of them). Really regret it.
(Regret it even more after I've found these bloggers' photos from the concert: here and here. What an idiot I am...)
I'm reading these two extremely long pieces on Putin's Russia now: one by Michael Specter in the New Yorker, and the other by Perry Anderson in London Review of Books.
If I ever manage to finish them, I hope to share a few thoughts here. Maybe not.
