“Never underestimate the meanness in people's souls... Even when they're being kind... especially when they're being kind.” Alice Munro has been awarded the Nobel prize in literature. The writer known as "the Canadian Chekhov" is the 110th winner of the prize and the 13th woman to receive it. Read the news in The Guardian and a interview about "Dear Life" her newest collection of short stories that came out in November 2012, in The New Yorker. E. T. P.: 5'26''.

This very interesting article in The Guardian starts like this: "At the trial of the three Pussy Riot performers in August 2012, one of the accused, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, made a closing statement in their defence. She spoke of Pussy Riot's admiration for those writers and artists who had suffered under Stalin's purges, and in particular for a group of avant garde poets and writers known as Oberiu. Two of the most prominent Oberiu members were Alexander Vvedensky and Daniil Kharms, both of whom were arrested, and died, during the Great Terror." Russia, along with some other countries,  seem to be bringing back into their policies that "sense of threat in the background", that is why we found this article so pertinent. Read it in The Guardian. E. T. P.: 4'35''. 



Lars Von Trier latest movie Nymphomaniac, that will be released in UK movie theaters the next 25th of December have a really orgasmic collection of character posters. Of course. Have a look here. E.T.P.: 23''.
