“Days of Night - Nights of Day is about the daily life of the inhabitants of Norilsk, a mining city northernmost of the polar circle with a population of more than 170,000.
The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag. With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation.
Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world. The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night. The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable.”

My memory cannot recall - a wave of alcohol. We shared a cigarette and shaved the hours off.

"No longer easy on the eyes but these wrinkles masterfully disguise the youthful boy below.
Who turned your way and saw something he was not looking for, both a beginning and an end.
But now he lives inside someone he does not recognize when he catches his reflection on accident.”
hey!! If anybody is in the NYC area Scott’s band White Veins is playing tomorrow night at Pianos and I’ll be there singing and playing keyboard/synth. I think it’s a 21+ show but there’s a guest list that you could probably be added to if you wanna come and you’re under age! Also we are playing at the Midway Cafe in Boston (Jamaica Plain) on Tuesday night and it would be really cool if you came!

What an amazing find!
A female Sundarbans River Terrapin (Batagur baska) was discovered in a family pond in Bangladesh. The turtle had been kept as a pet for 16 years. After much discussion, the turtle’s owner agreed to sell the critically endangered turtle to the team’s breeding colony, adding a seventh female and diversifying the genetic base! In this touching photo, the previous owner says good-bye to her beloved pet.
