Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.


Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

(Excerpt from Suzanne by Leonard Cohen...)

• (Summary of) Vladimir Putin interview (by The Moscow Times)

Here's an excerpt:

"Asked about the possible awakening of the giant mythical octopus Cthulhu, the fourth-most popular question among the more than 150,000 sent to Putin, he said that he believed something more serious was behind the question."

Budujemy Społeczności - Errm... I don't have a fucking clue what this website is about and I think even a Polish interpreter wouldn't be any help. But it sure warped my fragile little mind. o_O


I.) I'll be in Cambridge and London - where I'll hopefully meet Corran and Mike again - from tomorrow till July 23 and in Budapest with my brother from July 27 onwards. I don't know when I'll be back yet. If you're in Cambridge, London or Budapest and always wanted me to give you an autograph on your boobies/bum, don't hesitate to email me. I do this all the time and I'll even bring my own pen.

II. a) Stoopid ThunderBird® lost all the email addresses that were in my newsletter directory. Sorry about that. But who needs newsletters anyway in these days of shiny RSS feeds?

II. b) Sorry that I didn't get any time to reply to all your fanmail, but I have two terribly stressful weeks behind me. My apologies go out to Alex, Rik, Jessica, and all the others who mailed but didn't get replies. Sowwy... Also, I haven't forgotten about the print project, dear Kate. I'll contact you a.s.a.p.

III.) K. Louise! Your prints arrived this very instant! They're beautiful! I'm in awe. Thank you!

IV.) Reason Nr. 138946 why I want to marry Stéphane Blanquet.

    Nah, sadly not. I'll just be there as a neo-communist tourist once again. I'm planning to visit SzoborPark again. Weeee!

    Way to go Suzanne. Quote Leonard Cohen at the top of every post and you'll never get rid of me.

    ... she bends to my longing, like a willow, like a fountain, she stands in the luminous air...
