Music Mondays: Pussy Riot

Like a good portion of the planet, I’ve been engrossed in the football for the past month. I know, I know, but I can’t help it! I was raised on the excitement, the anxiety, and the jubilation around o jogo bonito so it’s been hard to focus on anything else.

However, it was very welcoming to be shoved out of this trance by Pussy Riot’s protest during the second half of the final.  It was an in-your-face reminder that Russia might’ve put on a great show,  but it will not forgive the atrocious violations of human rights they’ve committed/are committing. Their point was made even more poignant ahead of today’s the meeting between 45 and the puppet master himself.

Thank you, Pussy Riot!

I’m back!
