Ramm’s Tyolka Tuesday #8

Okay so I admit that keeping up this feature is a bit harder than I expected. But I guess that’s what happens when you’re a procrastinator like me and you leave things until the last moment. It works great when you’re writing and you have a deadline (which I don’t when I write one of my posts). But if it’s a regular column and you have to look up shit every single time and the idea mill is starting to run thin? Fuck me running!

Anyway this week we’re leaving the Motherland for Ukraine. The Ukrainians don’t consider themselves as part of the East but as Europeans and therefore somehow more “civilized” than the Russian “brutes”. Funny then that they put their first woman prime minister, Yulia Timoshenko under house arrest and beat the shit out of her supporters. On the other hand you have groups like Femen, who say that they are protesting against Patriarchy, yet have no problem in sexualizing their protests with the very same glands that most feminists say they are trying to desexualize. ¬†At least in Russia they know how NOT to be a contradiction and stick to their guns about it. At least Ukrainian women are also pretty. Enjoy and all that. Pics courtesy of acidcow.com.

That’s if for this week, folks. I already took my shitload of OTC anti-histamines and I’m going to hit the hay soon. Tomorrow will hopefully be the day when I win my pass not just out of Solitary and The Yard, but off of this goddamned island prison!

Ramm’s Tyolka Tuesday #2

It’s that time of the week, fuckers!

This week, we would like to dedicate it to the women of Russian law enforcement. Russia may have an oppressive regime and a horrible human rights record for criminals. But as long as I get taken in by girls like these, getting tuberculosis in a broom closet-sized jail cell with 30 other inmates doesn’t seem so bad.

Anybody who knows me, knows that one of my biggest literary influences was the now defunct Moscow, Russia based English alternative newspaper, The eXile. Just before they were shut down by Vladimir Putin’s goons for writing about Pussy Riot before there ever was a Pussy Riot, they started a nice little section on their online edition called “Tyolka Tuesday”, where they basically posted pics of Russian women, to rub in the noses of Western men the kind of women that the average man was fucking in Russia.

Ever since The eXile’s editor-in-chief, Mark Ames was banished from Russia and is now living a dull and dreary existence in America and he stopped doing Blow, I have decided to pay tribute to their invaluable contribution to cross-cultural exchange by making my own Tyolka Tuesday. So to kick it off, here I leave a small video I found.

I know that not all of them might be Russian per se. So let’s just say I will dedicate every Tuesday to the women of the East.

Enjoy fuckers.
