Artist Evan Holm is convinced that ‘there will be a time when all tracings of human culture will dissolve back into the soil under the slow crush of the unfolding universe’.
To demonstrate these rather dark thoughts, he created a submerged record player that’s still producing a nearly perfect audio as demonstrated in the short video below.
Humane Society International advises visitors on its website to check with the Centers for Disease Control to confirm what shots dogs need before being entering the U.S., then consult with a local vet in Russia and finally contact the airline about its policies relating to traveling with a new pet.
I love watching the Olympics, both summer and winter games. Having grown up playing multiple sports, I see the Olympics as a time for people and countries to put aside all their crap and bullshit and just enjoy, admire and celebrate the achievements that these athletes, regardless of their background, are able to accomplish. The Olympics are about humans pushing themselves to their limits and surpassing them.
That said, I can no longer pretend that that’s what is all about. The International Olympic Committee and hundreds of television networks across the globe, including our very own NBC, will be making millions of dollars through advertisements airing during the games. Most of these ads are from other multi-million dollar corporations that will most likely profit from them.
With all this money moving around amongst the rich, how much is being spent on raising awareness for gay rights and free speech in Russia? How much will be used to save the thousands if stray dogs in Sochi that Putin ordered to be killed using poison darts? How much to repair the damages they have done to the environment?
I was upset when the wife told me that we were boycotting the Olympics. She said that she couldn’t support a country with no gay rights that killed dogs. I did not want to listen because I thought that the issues of the country hosting the games were separate from the games themselves. Now I see she was right, and what it means if we watch them from our homes.
I will not watch Sochi. I will miss this year’s Olympics unless the corporations profiting from them use the money to help find homes for the dogs and to promote gay and human rights.
