“Like any parent, mother Russia just plain does not understand today’s youth. The government was looking for a reason for the high suicide rates, depression and general gloominess predominant among teens throughout their vast, impoverished and often freezing country. It finally landed on a likely culprit: emo clothing. Hell, that has to be it, right? What else is there to be depressed about in glorious Russia?”—
There are several points being made here, and I’m not sure I’m the right person to talk about all of them. However, as I understand it Keynesianism seems more logical and proactive. For the time being, I think the latter especially is a good thing.

“I have my own particular sorrows, loves, delights; and you have yours. But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope, love, belong to all of us, in all times and in all places. Music is the only means whereby we feel these emotions in their universality.”—(via jamesonleigh)
The energy of the band and the crowd was top-notch. Here I am posting the setlist and some videos I was able to capture in HD with my Flip video camera. They started by covering the Nine Inch Nails song ’Wish’ and ended with ‘Soco Amaretto Lime,’ which I was front and center for!
“I’ve been making a list of the things they don’t teach you at school. They don’t teach you how to love somebody. They don’t teach you how to be famous. They don’t teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don’t teach you how to walk away from someone you don’t love any longer. They don’t teach you how to know what’s going on in someone else’s mind. They don’t teach you what to say to someone who’s dying. They don’t teach you anything worth knowing.”—Neil Gaiman, ftw.
