  1. James Meek · Diary: Real Murderers! · LRB 8 October 2015

    Nearly forgot to link to this. I’m surprised I haven’t heard of Khrzhanovsky’s film / event / play / art / reconstruction / whatever, called ‘Dau’, before because it sounds *bonkers*. Really.

  2. Diary by Peter Pomerantsev (London Review of Books)

    Starts as a fascinating brief description of sistema, the pervasive Russian corruption, ends up starting to show how London is now a place where this is legitimised. Laundering crookedness.

  3. Forms of Delirium by Peter Pomerantsev (London Review of Books)

    Russia’s an odd place. Nationalist, Christian biker gangs etc.

  4. Leningrad Siege: Now and Then | English Russia

    Very simple, a blending of old and new photos, but very effective.

  5. intitle:”anna chapman” inurl:beyond_the_beyond site:www.wired.com - Google Search

    I’m very much enjoying Bruce Sterling’s coverage of Russian spy Anna Chapman. (And, mmm, Google search filters are handy.)

  6. BBC News | World | Audio slideshow: Night witches

    About Russia’s World War II female fighter pilots, what I was in a play about three years ago.

  7. SovMusic.ru - Soviet Music

    Lots of free Soviet MP3s. Hear a choir sing (apparently) ‘Capital Oppresses Us’ and other family favourites. Also, speeches and lots of Soviet posters.

  8. USSR posters - a photoset on Flickr

    1,500 “Russian and/or Soviet propaganda & advert posters from 1917 to 1991.” (via Kottke)

  9. Jwz - space junk

    Great photos of bits of rockets that have crashed to earth in and around Russia. (via Haddock)

  10. LRB | James Meek : Reasons to be Miserable

    The strange world of distant, frozen parts of Russia, which really shouldn’t be populated.
