this is one of the golden knobs placed by the soviets on the pawnbroker's staircase to impress foreigners.

one old woman forgives another...

this is raskolnikov's apartment, presented sideways for dramatic effect.

at the moment i am at a friend's apartment.
it is old with high ceilings and loud pipes.
i was chosen to be one of the three primary critics at the workshop tomorrow
but i have no idea what i am going to say.
i have met ugly duckling presse people
seem to be interested in my project
today i went to a lecture on the обэриу
matvei yankelevich has translated lots of oberiu's, work primarily kharms and vvedensky

walked around the raskolnikov tour today
took some pictures of seedy urine stained stairways
the stairways
where people pretend the murder happennd or where raskolnikov lived
i thought of you when i was walking around with a bunch of americans in the city of crime and punishment (insert comment)
just then we passed a black bmw that was playing some pop song about the zone...
