Brace Yourselves: “GLOBAL FREE PUSSY RIOT DAY” is Coming Friday – Protest at Russian Consulate

Thursday, August 16th, 2012

It’s come to this.

The specific whites of Pacific Heights and Cow Hollow aren’t going to like tomorrow’s international protest one bit.

Not one bit!

“GLOBAL FREE PUSSY RIOT DAY - FRIDAY AUGUST 17th – FreePussyRiot.org

The ‘Free Pussy Riot’ protest is a worldwide response to Russian authorities detaining three young women for performing an anti-Putin song in a cathedral in Moscow in February. Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Ekaterina Samucevich are the three women and members of Pussy Riot, a feminist collective punk band known for impromptu performances with a political agenda to promote basic rights, gender equality and the lack of justice involving the powers that be.

The global pussy riot campaign is going to be held in major cities around the world this Friday to urge Putin and Russian authorities for a fair hearing for the girls’ sentencing. With support from celebrities such as Madonna and Pete Townshend, and of Amnesty International the pussy riot has become a movement to show support for these three women and more importantly to show Russian authorities their decision will not go unnoticed.

In San Francisco their are two events being held:

At 3:00 PM on Friday supporters will be meeting at the Russian Consulate 2790 Green Street.

“As a musician who has spoken out against political figures, I am deeply troubled that the Russian government is punishing its citizens for voicing their opinions through music. Music is an essential tool for voicing opinions about everything from gender to oppression. To outlaw the free expression of these ideas is to embrace tyranny. Letting artists speak is the hallmark of a free society.”

Vladimir’s Beauty Salon Helps San Francisco Remember the 1980s

Monday, July 20th, 2009

Well here it is, way out in the Middle Richmond District- it’s a Patrick Nagel print from Yelp-rated Vladimir’s Beauty Salon, as seen at 6340 Geary Boulevard entre les avenues 27 et 28.

Won’t you agree that “Patrick Nagel’s artwork is ‘so 80′s’“?

Here’s a little more 311 about the background of this Beauty Shop Nagel:

“Nagel’s figures generally have black hair, bright white skin, full-lipped mouths, and the distinctive Nagel eyes, which are often squared off in the later works. Because of the intense stylization and reduction of facial features into clean lines, generally the figures resemble each other.”

“While Nagel’s work is mostly represented by aloof, if also seductive women, they are rarely, if ever, presented in a submissive relationship with men.”

“Nagel’s artwork strongly influenced the illustration and clip art of the late 1980s and illustrations of women strongly resembling those seen in Nagel’s art were widely used in hair and nail salons and other beauty-oriented businesses.”

1980′s Fever – Catch It.
