    Russian court finds Pussy Riot rockers guilty of hooliganism

     

    Old news evidently, shows how much attention I pay to the news.

      I hope foreign artists refuse to perform in Russia as long as Pussy Riot are incarcerated.  I hope they are not incarcerated any longer, of course.  A suspended sentence would be the best outcome at this point.

      Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

        So Pussy Riot causes hooliganism. 

         

        Well, duh.

         

        Give in to their demands.

         

          Two years.

                 NOW I remember why I need to come back here more often.

                  The funny thing here is, if you discount the lyrics (in Russian, I mean), it could be ANY punk song.  Sorta reminds me of some Plasmatics.  Sans the breast bearing Wendy O Williams.

                   

                  I kinda like it.

                   

                  Now, for the controversy...that they are being prosecuted, is really alien to us in the West (or, at least me).   Granted, I have no idea what they're saying, but, people in the US say some really bad things.  Yeah, they get in trouble if they *threaten* the POTUS and stuff, but, from what I gather, that's not what Pussy Riot did.

                   

                  How different is Russia from the old USSR?

                      So in reading up on Pussy Riot, I came across the article on nbcnews about the current popular righteous indignation by western famous folks on PR's behalf.  (see: Kony)

                       

                      My favorite bit was "Alicia Silverstone wrote Putin..."

                       

                      Alicia Silverstone?

                       

                      She's had a lot of time on her hands.  Plus, there is no way to ponder that WITHOUT thinking of Clueless.

                                That's funny. I get that too now, but not the first time I was there, from Google News. Looks like when you click through from there you're allowed in. Search for "gu verdict" on Google News.
