Link: Nostalgia in Post Soviet Ice Cream Packaging

No Memento Mori today beyond the simple statement of 'memento mori', but take a gander at this great piece about Nostalgia in the wake of the Soviet Union.


  1. That's so bizarre. Nostalgia for the Soviet Union? That would be like Americans feeling nostalgia for the Confederacy.

    Oh, wait.

  2. It's not as strange as you think. I periodically chat with a girl from the Ukraine, old enough to have plenty of memories of the Soviet Union. She talks about the pre-collapse 80s with a certain amount of affection and, yes, nostalgia.
