Anyway, I'm very very glad that the sun will be returning. I will honor the sun god by religiously watching football.
From the world of art:
Plainclothes police confiscated 30 photographs by Oleg Kulik after complaints from the public that they were offensive. The pictures, taken in the late 1990s, show Kulik naked on all fours. In some of them he appears to simulate sex with animals.
Okay, that's good enough, but here comes the money quote: "Jacqueline Moussion, who represents Kulik at her gallery in Paris, called him a 'great intellectual' whose art was rooted in the downfall of communism."
