Have you been able to contact Masha or Nadia at all since your release?
Yes, it is very limited because it’s mostly through letters though. And since everything is censored in the written communication, we can’t really discuss anything at length. I should add that in the Russian legal system if you are a co-conspirator in a case with someone else you are not allowed direct contact with them. I have a suspended sentence but I’m not allowed to visit them or call them on this sort of prison Skype that we have because it’s against Russian law, so I actually have to write letters under fake names and send it to them to communicate.
Did you support Masha’s decision to go on a hunger strike?
Yes of course. I believe that Masha can make the right decision based on her circumstances. I think she had the right reasons, based on interviews she’s given and things she’s written to me about.
And in 1951, there was light on Arsenal’s pitch
The match finished Arsenal 3-2 Glasgow Rangers. There were 62,000 in attendance, and the date was October 17, 1951. If it looks both surreal and completely normal, that’s because there are two senses of novelty at play, for the crowd and for a fan in 2013. At the time, this was only the second match at Highbury that Arsenal played under floodlights. The scene is complete film noir, which - after a little digging - revealed that there’s a film from a 1939 called The Arsenal Stadium Mystery. This match also confirmed a long-standing friendly relationship between Rangers and Arsenal. No camera crews. No advertisements. Just fans and football.
I love it when old photographs are so amazing that they look like bad computer graphics.
Click for high res!
I’ve been very exited about this film ever since I heard of it’s very strange concept.

Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac is set to digitally impose Hollywood actor’s faces on pornstar bodies.
The film’s producer, Louise Vesth, has told The Hollywood Reporter that Von Trier is using digital effects to map the top half of the likes of Charlotte Gainsbourg, Stellan Skarsgard, Shia LaBeouf, Jamie Bell, Willem Dafoe, Connie Nielsen & co on to the bottom halves of professional porn-star doubles. “We shot the actors pretending to have sex,” the producer says, “and then had the body doubles, who really did have sex, and in post we will digital-impose the two. So above the waist it will be the star and below the waist it will be the doubles.” Oh, the life of a visual effects artist…
Beyond that, the film looks to be pushing less taboo boundaries, as Vesth told the trade that the films uses ‘double exposures and imposing words and symbols over the action,’ in a technique that one anonymous potential buyer called “groundbreaking… like nothing I’ve ever seen.” If the producer’s right, the film could turn out to be Von Trier’s masterpiece, as she says, “Lars has thrown everything in this one. It’s about religion, about God, about philosophy. There’s so much to talk about with this movie.” We’re excited, certainly. Nymphomaniac: Pt. 1 will open in Denmark on Christmas Day, with part two, and an international release, likely to follow in 2014.
I hope he’s got a good story to back up the shock tactics.
