Video artist Elisa Kreisinger remixes video found in popular culture in ways that challenge us to rethink our relationships to the characters we already know.
You can easily spend hours looking at her remixes, they are provocative and often quite edgy. We love this video that showcases Peggy Olsen’s transformation throughout the years. Watch her lean in and tell us what you think.
#sochiproblems, your problems are irrelevant tbh. Given the general state of Russia outside of Moscow/St Petersburg, you’re lucky your hotels have roofs.
I say this as a Russian who is bemused at the shock and horror you’re expressing at the state of the hotels; welcome to Russia, I guess. That’s what it’s like. That’s what the majority of this country lives like.
The amount of joy that Western media has found in taking the piss out of Russia is terrifying. It’s not a fucking joke. This is real. Laughing about it is just immature. What you’re seeing is merely a reflection of Russia as a whole (i.e. a shithole if you aren’t filthy rich). It’s a reflection of a massive problem.

This week, Tunisia passed a truly historic constitution widely heralded as a progressive and monumental document.
Here’s just some of what these brave elected representatives agreed upon in the face of strong pressure from the more extreme factions of their parties:
- Guaranteed equality between men and women
- A constitutional mandate for environmental protection, only the third country in the world to do so
- A declaration that health care is a human right, with preventative care and treatment for every citizen
- A democracy with civil laws that respects freedom of religion
- An established right to due process and protection from tortureIn one stroke,Tunisia’s become more democratic than many Western countries have been for years.
This is a revolution of democracy and a great victory for human rights — and the more we recognize that, the more Tunisia can shine as an example for the Western and the Arab world!
Congratulate the Legislators!
MESSAGE FOR TUNISIAN LEGISLATORS: We , the citizens of the world, applaud your bravery in making a strong commitment to universal human values in your constitution. People deprived of democracy around the world look to you to set the example of human rights and democratic principle — hold true to the promises made in this revolutionary document!
It is illegal for women to go topless in most cities, yet you can buy a magazine of a woman without her top on at any 7-11 store. So, you can sell breasts, but you cannot wear breasts, in America.
