The craziest news Since Katy Perry's Josh Grobin Tattoo Fuss

Hello World. It has come to the attention of Planet Earth that Russia is pushing laws that are banning strong alcoholic drinks in airports and duty free shops. In other words the Russian borders are going sober.

I understand people are concerned about alcoholism. But why do they have to take away the most important places in the world to drink. Airports are one of the most needed places to drink, unless you're a pilot. And duty free shops = vacation and tourism. Also, the best times to drink. Not to mention that it is very difficult to link alcoholism to airport beverages. I say this ban is lame.
(Ok, I think you can still drink on a plane, but the anticipation comes before the flight. That's when you needed to be ossified (slang definition of ossified).).

Russia is the exquisite world capital of Vodka (sorry Finlandia), and in addition this is an issue of freedom of choice.

In case you're wondering how much of what I'm writing is legit: the answer is none.

QATFYG: Any thoughts? And check out pravada.ru, it's actually the best news place I've seen since adding myanmar news on twitter.

PS: Silly Katy Perry.

  1. I don't think this will stick. Russia is more or less the most alcoholic country in the world--alcoholism rates through the roof, insane amounts of drinking at all times of the day, etc. Vodka is considered a folk remedy (source: one of my many Russian culture textbooks). If it does stick, it'll be a miracle.

    Oh, and freedom of choice + Russia = lolol

  3. mmorbo..respect for Poland.

    Adam..I try to be universal when it comes to thinking about Freedom of choice on these issues, but you do raise a point.

    If Russians get full freedom of choice with drinking they will drain the globe. Already, the president has stated that he is shocked at how many bottles of vodka are being downed in Russia. But hey, it happens.

  4. Poland = awesome. (I may just be saying that b/c I'm part Polish but w/e)

    I think freedom of choice is incredibly important... but it doesn't really come into play in Russia. drink your vodka or go to the gulag. trufax

  5. I think it's a strange ban; however, I don't honestly think it's a big deal. How long is a person in the airport before a flight? An hour or two or something like that. I think that it's possible for people to wait that long to drink. But any way, I think this is just a way to keep fewer people from taking Alcohol across the border.

  6. But across the border is the best place to take it.........

"Chang-E" - Emmy the Great (new album out 10/9)

Emmy the Great drops her new album tomorrow on Bella Union - the fastest album she says she's ever created.  "April /月音" was completed after a trip to to her birth city Hong Kong in 2017. In early 2018, Emmy the Great made "April /月音" in a two-week period in Brooklyn - which was delayed for release until now because of her maternity leave. After recording this album, Emmy moved (for good) back to Hong Kong.  Since her original trip to Hong Kong, things have become quite tumultuous there. Said Emmy. "I’ll never know why the city called me back, but I know what it gave me. In return, I want to give it this album. That Mid-Autumn, nobody could have predicted what was to come, neither the atomization that began with the anti-Extradition Law protests in June 2019, nor the struggle for democracy that continues now, through the Covid-19 pandemic. To witness your birth city in its greatest moment of need is a powerful, humbling event, and I know I watched Hong Kong

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawso

RIP Andy Warpigs

If you're even vaguely familiar with the Phoenix music scene to any extent, you probably knew Andy Warpigs. I saw them a few times at Yucca/Time Out Lounge when I was frequenting both spots a few years ago. Andy Warpigs was one of the most ubiquitous names you could come across, and with good reason - they were an incredibly prolific and talented artist, basically a Phoenix legend.  Unfortunately, over the weekend Andy Warpigs passed away - an extremely tragic loss. If you can possibly donate to the GoFundMe to help Andy's mom with funeral expenses , please do so.  Take care, Britt
