Since I've Been Gone

Insanity has struck. That's at least the way I'm going to put the past couple of weeks. That's why my internet persona has been quiet, and that's why I'm not ready to start putting together original content.

All the same, the world has moved on. Rigi was captured (and alleges US involvement with Jundullah), On Violence talks about how District 9 is about the War on Terror, and a drunk chimp is sent to Kazan for rehab. But my favorite is from the Polar Bear Colony, which landed this long-form piece on The Exile.
What The Exile lacked in resources it made up for in ritualistic public humiliation. For one stunt, Ames and Taibbi, armed with forged stationery purporting to be from the St. Petersburg mayor’s office, hired the American public-relations giant Burson-Marsteller to help put a nice spin on the city’s police-brutality problem. Burson-Marsteller, at the time doing a lot of work in Russia on behalf of American companies, happily took the job, and The Exile published the correspondence and phone transcripts.
Rage, pranks, and some killer writing. Oh how I long to work in an environment like that. But preferably without all of the Soddom and Gomorrah stuff, I'm not sure I could be up to that. Too strange to live, too rare to die, The Exile did some incredible stuff. Even if, under it all, they were terrible people not to be romanticized about.
