Merely Anecdotal

Hey! You found my blog! Well I think it's great... Give us a snog! Ah ye bloody ingrate... But anyhoo, for those that do stay, Let me give you fair warning what lies yonder, nay? A bit of The Doctor in his blue box so keen, Sherlock and Watson, just friends, so it seems. Next, Harry Potter indeed made me cry, but as long as I’m posting in my mind no one died. Charlie Chaplin helped a nation throughout despair. They called him a commie, boy did America fuck up there. Let’s see what else? Ah the books that I read. The music I hear. And the photos I see. That’s all I can think of, my blog’s galore. But of course this is Tumblr, SO THERE’S PROBABLY MORE.


Book recommendations, book reviews, quotes, book clubs, book trivia, book lists
Lovely, Lovely People

Kozakiewicz’s Gesture

At the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow, the pole vaulting finals led to some tension between Soviet and Polish spectators. The crowd cheered on the favourite Konstantin Volkov and jeered the Polish jumper Władysław Kozakiewicz. After securing his gold medal, Kozakiewicz made an obscene gesture in reaction to the crowds taunts. After countless years of strict Soviet control, the Polish people were able to take pride in both his medal and his defiance.

In short, the Soviets got a well deserved fuck you.
