First we have the exhausting look within Eugene’s closet. Centuries before the Internet, Pushkin shows us how rad Onegin’s Instagram would have been… That or his YouTube channel. You get the point.


From here we proceed to what many have called the foot fetish section of Pushkin’s classic (see, dear God I dare you, here).

“I am not ashamed of my grandparents for having been slaves. I am only ashamed of myself for having at one time being ashamed.”

Nick Hornby
“I fell in love with football as I was later to fall in love with women: suddenly, inexplicably, uncritically, giving no thought to the pain or disruption it would bring with it.”
Nick Hornby, Fever Pitch

Nick Hornby
“...So please, be tolerant of those who describe a sporting moment as their best ever. We do not lack imagination, nor have we had sad and barren lives; it is just that real life is paler, duller, and contains less potential for unexpected delirium.”
