Dad and "The King's Speech"

Explaining "The King's Speech" to my dad
Me: The king. With the speech impediment. He was in power during WWII.
Dad: Oh Hitler.
Me: Yes, Hitler.

Joking aside. "The King's Speech" was an amazing film and I've got my fingers crossed for it at this year's Academy Awards.

Russian Tanning

– Sun Jan 16, 11:55 am ET

MOSCOW – A centuries-old Russian prison notorious for its primitive conditions will soon offer inmates a new perk — tanning beds.

The ITAR-Tass news agency on Sunday cited federal prisons service Viktor Dezhurov as saying the tanning beds at Moscow's Butyrskaya prison will be ready for observances of its' 240-year anniversary this year.

Dezhurov was quoted as saying the tanning beds are meant to compensate for inadequate sunlight in the cells. But inmates will have to pay and at 10 rubles (33 cents) a minute, that's a sizable fee in a country where the average monthly salary is well under $1,000.

The prison's dismal conditions attracted wide attention in 2009 after the death of Sergei Magnitsky, a young lawyer who died of pancreas disease there after inadequate medical care.

The Last Night of "In the Heights"

"In the Heights" closed Sunday night. "Heights" was an amazing show to see on Broadway and the story behind the creation of it makes the show all that more beautiful as well.

A doodle from class last year. I seem to have so little to say or write lately, which is why I haven't really kept up with anything with this blog.
