Don't worry, it's not that I've migrated to Facebook or Google+; rather, I have simply dropped out of posting things almost entirely. (Well, I do post occasional photos to FB, but that's just because my phone can do it automatically.)



I just watched "9th Company," a Ukrainian and Finnish movie about Soviets in Afghanistan, (EXTREMELY) loosely based on actual events. It's a war movie in the same vein as, say, "Full Metal Jacket" or "Jarhead," being as it's about kids going through basic training and being sent off to die. There's tiny bit of nudity (the only woman in the whole movie, come to think of it), a lot of shooting at things, a lot of blood, and some tanks driving around in the desert. Nobody has a very good time, but since this is a movie about, you know, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, you can pretty much assume that it's not going to have a happy ending.

Mildly recommended. I suspect that you already know if it's something you want to watch. If this is the kind of thing you like, here it is.
