Blessed by the phallus on a Himalayan pilgrimage

Everyone loves to go for a picnic in Bhutan. The young do not feel intruded when the old tag along with packed lunches. The old have no qualms about sharing high school jokes with their grandchildren as the pines and the cypresses shade their walk to the picnic. They carry packed lunches [...]

Exit, laughing

image thumbnail - see full story for attributionsVideo
My real 'goodbye' starts and ends here. It's just after 1pm in Budapest, which I suppose means around 7am in New York city, and another 18 hours before... what? I'm not really sure. Does the site just disappear offline with a trace? It seems hard to believe. Curmudgeonly old bastard that I [...]

  • I think neither Putins nor the Kasparovs are fit to lead. That said, this has been Russia's traditional choice: the autocrat or the hapless, idealistic dissident who will never get to rule.read » T/S JULIA IOFFE

What is a Russophobe?

This is my last True/Slant post for, as of tomorrow, True/Slant will be no more. You will be able to read more of my bloggery, if you so choose, at themoscowdiaries.wordpress.com but for now here is my last T/S post. A debate has been raging here, in the comments section, as [...]

Out of focus, fading to black?

In November 2008, this so-called Jet-Set Hobo was in Buenos Aires when he filed his first story for True/Slant. It was called 'From Argentina with Love', and was in some way concerned with what was the new James Bond movie, 'A Portion of Condolence'.  If there was any actual film [...]

Well, gang, it's been fun. This is the last thing I'll write for True/Slant, and I want to thank everyone who read me and emailed me and offered to name their children after me. (This one goes out to you, little Briana Sanchez.) When I was first approached to write [...]

Odd tale of hijacking reported at Moscow airport

image thumbnail - see full story for attributions
Reports this evening that a hijacking has been stopped at Domodedovo airport in Moscow. Yesterday afternoon. Apparently, a passenger on a Moscow-bound flight from Mineralnye Vody "made demands" of the crew and held up the plane for two hours. One report says this passenger turned to the plane's captain saying he [...]

Bear Takes Stuffed Likeness from NH Home

I love the wild animal enters home and wreaks manageable havoc then leaves type of story as much as the next guy, but this one has a great twist. In New Hampshire a bear entered a house through an open door then proceeded to eat two pears, a bunch of grapes, [...]

Y'all, it is so hot in Moscow. There are peat-bog fires in the countryside so the city is choked with a visible, and pungent, white smoke. In the last couple of weeks, we've beaten every record ever set since they started recording the temperature here 130 years ago. At this [...]

Now that True/Slant is winding down and will cease to exist and I go looking for another website where I can spew my half-hearted written agenda, I have arrived at the very important decision of using the umlauts in my name.
