If you were born in the Eastern block of Europe, you sure as hell saw a lot of Soviet monuments around. Soldiers, proudly leaning in forward in anticipation for a head-on fight with their guns in hands, fellow comrades standing in all their imposing glory, huge heads of Lenin… You’ve seen them all.

While for the older generation, it can really evoke positive sentiments, even memories of the glorious Soviet army maybe, for the young ones these monuments remind them of their oppressors.

This is the case in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, where a huge monument of Soviet soldiers, built back in 1954, is vandalised over and over again in the most creative ways.

The painting job was done by a group of anonymous artists who call themselves Destructive Creation. The daunting military figures were turned into much friendlier subjects like Superman, Ronald McDonald, Santa Claus, and Wonder Woman. A slogan which translates into English as “In pace with time” was scribbled beneath them.

The pink colour is a reference to the painting of The Monument to Soviet Tank Crews in Prague by David Černý in 1991, while the slogan beneath the figures says “Bulgaria apologises.”

In 2012, three previously arrested members of the Russian feminist protest punk rock band Pussy Riot were convicted by a Russian court and sentenced to two years’ imprisonment each. This was widely criticized outside Russia and on the same day of the conviction, colorful knit balaclavas (trademark of Pussy Riot members) were put on the heads of figures of the monument.

In February 2014, the monument was painted once again and this time it honoured Ukraine that was (and still is) a victim of Russia’s aggression. One of the soldiers and the flag above was painted in the national colours of Ukraine and the phrase “Glory to Ukraine” was written in Ukrainian on the monument. An obscene reference to Vladimir Putin was also made, by calling him “Kaputin.” The vandalism was an act of support of the 2014 Ukrainian Revolution.

Now… I think there’s a weird love-hate relationship here between Bulgaria and Russia since forever! Because let’s not forget that the Russian Empire also liberated Bulgaria from the Ottoman.

And here, although these Soviet era monuments remind everyone the darkest times in history, this particular monument is not about Lenin, Stalin, the USSR, or communism.

This is a monument honouring the soldiers who died fighting Nazis!

In short, I’m all about art, fun and justice. But also, I’m all about respect to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Gays and fun men, you can totally slay Halloween with very little creativity, very little clothing, and very little accessories. Because let’s be honest: you weren’t planning on actually wearing a shirt this Halloween anyway, so this list is perfect for you!

Throw on a speedo, slap on some paint and BAM! You’re set for a night full of treating (minus the tricks)!

Singer Sam Smith, the nonbinary genderqueer recording artist, announced on Twitter Friday that “their” pronouns are they/them…

Using plural pronouns to refer to a single person is ridiculous!

I hate when talented artists become insufferable in the need for attention, genre has become so complicated and he has to come out as something different every year… Can he just shut up and enjoy his life?

Truly, when I was young there was gay, straight and bi.

These days also comes with “curious” and an extra something, as if labelling yourself with one word (or as if people care) is not enough.

Anyway, my adverb and adjective to him are Not / Interested.

Because the political American circus never ends…

The Washington Post reports:

He posted nine tweets and five maps about Alabama and the big storm. He defended a doctored hurricane map that had been altered with a black Sharpie to include the state. And he had his White House release a 225-word statement defending his erroneous warnings that Alabama was “going to get a piece” of the storm.

Trump’s fixation on his erroneous Dorian warnings underscores a long history of defending inaccurate claims — from the crowd size at his inaugural address to false claims of voter fraud in 2016 to fictional “unknown Middle Easterners” streaming across the southern border in migrant caravans.

It was Trump who used a black Sharpie to mark up an official National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration map, which he displayed during an Oval Office briefing on Wednesday, according to a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

Was there ever any doubt?

First of all, dance in any form is the art of body movement, and ballet is one of the finest art but also one of the most difficult physical practice. 

That been said, some lady host (Lara Spencer) at a show called Good Morning America laughed over Prince George taking ballet classes.

See this cute face, the future King of England? This adorable boy is being shamed by a grown woman on National Television in America for taking ballet! @lara.spencer you should be ashamed of yourself as well as @gstephanopoulos for laughing along & @goodmorningamerica for letting public shaming of young boys happen! Growing up as a dancer I was bullied horribly which is exactly what this is. She is teaching the word that it is ok to laugh at boys for dancing and that is so sad. Just think about the young boys who may have seen this and could quit their passion at her expense. It infuriates me and I would appreciate everyone sharing this and forcing a public apology to Prince George, The Royal Family, all male dancers and all dancers in general for being so insensitive. #LaraSpencer #GeorgeStephanopoulos #GoodMorningAmerica #BoysDance #BoysDanceToo #DontShameMaleDancers

Way to feed gender stereotypes, Lara.

Male ballet dancers are beasts with stunning bodies and beyond otherworldly asses! I’ve met few ballet dancer in the past and OMG they were absolute perfection.

I wish my parents had the guts to put me on ballet classes.

I would have had confidence, discipline, strength and poise.

Lara and that regressive thinking can fuck off! 

Image result for atomik vodkaDid anyone watch the Chernobyl mini-series? It’s an horror upon horror with bureaucratic lies and pathetic attempts by the Soviets to save face by letting their own citizens die horribly in ignorance. But eff that, let’s drink some vodka from the site!

CNET reports that scientists have distilled Atomik vodka in the radiation zone at Chernobyl…

From what we’ve seen of Chernobyl’s aftereffects, drinking Box Jellyfish piss would probably be safer.

Here’s how they explain it:

The Chernobyl Spirit Company, has brewed up the vodka from “slightly contaminated” rye grain they planted within the exclusion zone. While many traditionally think of vodka as produced from potatoes, these days most vodka is made from grains such as wheat and rye.

Here’s what environmental scientist and Chernobyl Spirit Company team member James Smith had to say about this wacky, radiation poisoned-sounding idea.

He’s studied Chernobyl since 1990 and spent time working in Belarus, the Ukraine and Russia.

“Our Atomik grain spirit came from an experiment we were doing to see how much radioactivity transferred into different crops in the Exclusion Zone 30 years after the accident,” he says, via email.

I mean…

The experimental plot where the grain was grown is situated about 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) from the Chernobyl reactor. Part of the process also involved using water from Chernobyl’s aquifer, lying about 10 kilometres (6 miles) south of the site of the disaster. The aquifer has been shown to contain traces of radioactivity in the past.

They’re using radiation water!

If you know anything about Chernobyl, you will not be going anywhere near that shit!

Last month, a bunch of attention whore losers in the American city of Boston saw all the love stemming from multiple Pride celebrations taking place around the world and decided to attempt a straight pride parade.

Of course, it failed miserably.

But fear not, because stupidity stretches from coast to coast. And now, the straight pride concept is popping up in the West with an upcoming rally slated to take place next month in Modesto, CA.

You should know that this idea comes from some homophobic jerk-off named Don Grundmann, who is a California-based chiropractor and herbalist. And of course this dude is an herbalist, because you’d have to be pretty damn high to believe that straight pride is a thing.

You should also know that Grundmann, who’s the director of the National Straight Pride Coalition, plastered his pretty pink fliers all over Modesto to alert the neighbours they were planning the event. And the event itself, in Grundmann’s words, is being organised to promote “heterosexuality, masculinity, femininity, babies, born and especially unborn, the nuclear family of men, women and children — everything that made our country great.”

No photo description available.

Western civilisation?

I’m no anthropologist , but I’m pretty sure there are heterosexuals living in other parts of the world, and have been for quite some time…

Jokes aside, this parade is going to be a bunch of closeted males, between the ages of 18-35, of some sort of mixed northern European ancestry, marching with tiki torches. 

Seriously, I’m not interested in insecure”straight” men and their need for more relevance. Your orange king is on his throne and wrecking havoc on your behalf.

Please fuck off!
