Woah. Its been a hit minute, right? SpaceCake & myself have to apologize…as much as I’d like to wax romantic about this or that exotic location we’ve been whisked away to for coverage of obscure bands and exciting news, it would all be lies. What have we truly been doing? Well, SpaceCake hasn’t let his lungs wander too far from that Purple Erkle that was in town for a minute. I have been dedicating myself to less hedonistic ventures…the constant pressures of day-to-day right? All the mending and fussing that goes on once the water starts to fall. Such is life.
But what you ask, dear reader, could jar me from my blogosphere sabbatical? Well first off, SpaceCake has been scribbling exciting strain reviews that I feel need to see the light of day, not to mention a decent start on a review for the incredible video game experience that is Limbo. But me? Took no more than the scent of a cold war era throwback to hot news. Remember the Russian “sleeper agents” that were deported earlier this October? Well the 1/10 of that group that is Anna Chapman came up overnight celebrity when she returned home. Due to a heady mix of provocative Facebook photos and creepy American fetishizing of Bond-era spy girls, she is now hella famous. This culminated in a hilarious is-this-reality photo shoot for the cover of Russian Maxim , the results:
Great right? Russian pseudo-spy is deported from our country, then shot to fame with the dual efforts of our two nation’s adolescent fascination with a half-naked enemy of the state. Stranger than fiction, truly.

Really, you may ask, this is what we get after a two-week absence? American tabloid fodder? Well, it is hilarious, but of course not. If you’re a total square and missed this Wiz Khalifa single, wanted to make sure you weren’t left in the dark. Enjoy.
