postcards from the internets

from Russia:

When I travel by, I often visit these churches. I walk through the wormwood towards the door – they are unlocked, no one inside. No priests, no smell of incense, no burning candles, only a couple of cheap icons, towels, a slightly radioactive Bible and images of Saints on the walls.

I make sure the Bible is left open on the page where the age of wormwood is foretold. Then I stay for a while in contemplation.

Looking at radioactive image of Jesus I ask myself, ‘How long will these churches be here? Can they live without people?’

I leave this question to be answered by someone who travels here in the future and myself going back on the road to continue my journey.

from Iran:

“It is the story of Marjane, a little girl growing up in pre-revolutionary Iran in the 1970s.

Her hero is Bruce Lee…

She is the indulged and adored daughter of well-to-do secular leftists who campaign ceaselessly against the Shah, and find family members harassed and imprisoned.

When the revolution arrives, Marjane’s parents and their cigarette-smoking, alcohol-drinking, idea-discussing and life-enjoying friends at first welcome it. The fanatical theocrats make them nervous, but they are confident that all this is just a phase on the road to progressive enlightenment.”

from Afghanistan: “just say no to war”

from New York:

“This movie parody is an example of one of the reasons I went to the Supreme Court in 1988 — to make parody protected speech,” Hustler publisher Larry Flynt said via a press release we received last night.”

thx Jezebel
