the queen is coming to canada and some people are getting a little too excited...what the fuck has she done to earn this sort of respect? fuck the queen and fuck the british monarchy...and fuck canada for making this a big deal, start acting more like a independent country and not a colony
But for those who wish to do so, Sassine has a few tips:
—To curtsy to the Queen, for example, women should place the right foot behind the left heel, bend the knees slightly, keep eye contact and say "Your Majesty."
— Men who bow to the Duke of Edinburgh, for example, should make a slight nod of the head and say "Your Royal Highness," followed by "sir" for the remainder of the conversation.
It's also possible the Queen or the Duke of Edinburgh will extend their hand for a gentle touch during their stops in Toronto, Ottawa and Winnipeg. FULL STORY

Packing tape has gotten MacGyver out of many a jam, but he never managed to make an entire home out of the stuff. So he could probably learn something from Viennese/Croatian design collective For Use/Numen. The team uses nothing but packing tape to create huge, self-supporting cocoons that visitors could climb inside and explore...
First there was Allen Iverson, leading the NBA into a whole new generation of basketball. Almost 15 years later, they’ve signed his heir apparent: John Wall. This morning, right outside Times Square, Reebok decided to go big with their new No. 1 as they unveiled the soon-to-be rookie’s signature shoe: the Reebok ZigTech Slash.
“The energy drink for your feet.”
A catchy slogan that resonates from Wall’s first 30-second spot that will air during the NBA Draft tomorrow night. And if it’s one thing Wall is going to bring to the franchise is energy. As the festivities got underway, it was only fitting that Jay-Z’s “Public Service Announcement” blasted from the speakers as Reebok loudly announced their reintroduction, right before Wall arrived to another apt Jay-Z anthem: “A Star Is Born.”
“I’m going to stop the first kid I see wearing them,” says Wall. “It will be crazy to see high school players and other guys wearing my signature shoe.”
For those looking to get their hands on a pair, the ZigTech Slash will hit stores nationwide on October 15th.

Really good autobiography by Simo Dubajić my dad recently finished reading and suggested to me. I've been meaning to write a post on him for a while now and not just because he's my grandma's brother but because I don't think he's been fairly portrayed in the Croatian media in the time leading up to his passing last July. He's often associated with ordering the infamous Bleiburg massacre in which thousands of Nazi Ustasa were executed at the end of WWII. I won't get into the fact that if anybody in history deserved to die it was these animals but I would like to note Simo was 21 years old at the time and was simply following orders from above (from Tito)
Again, a really good read for anyone interested in Serbian and Croatian relations from WWII to the present. Život, grijeh i kajanje: Od Kistanja do Kočevskog roga covers all that and more

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - From behind closed doors, tight lips, and heavy-handed rule, a soccer star may be emerging.
His name is Jong Tae-Se and, other than his nation's infamous leader Kim Jong II, he could become the world's most recognizable North Korean. Despite constant accusation that he is not North Korean enough - he was born and raised in Japan though he isn't Japanese; his mother is South Korean yet he plays for North Korea; he holds a North Korean passport yet has never lived there - Jong is a couple of goals from delivering to the world a North Korean sports star.
Essentially, Jong straddles three countries: North Korea, South Korea, and Japan.
He does this fashionably.
He is his country's 26-year-old striker, "the People's Rooney" (an allusion to England's Wayne Rooney), a young man who speaks his mind and plays to score. He keeps a blog, listens to rap, drives a silver Hummer, and wants to play in the English Premier League. FULL STORY
