One of my favourite Robin Williams films is Moscow on the Hudson, an underrated and overlooked little gem which was written and directed by Paul Mazursky (who also passed away quite recently). Give it a look if you haven’t seen it, or rewatch it if you have.
Also worth mentioning, this poster was the subject of a 1987 lawsuit because it quite blatantly copied Saul Steinberg’s famous 1976 New Yorker cover “View of the World from 9th Avenue”, right down to using the New Yorker font. Needless to say, the movie studio lost the lawsuit.

I just got back from an 8-day road trip through Sweden and Norway and I can only conclude that not only did Norway get ALL the amazing natural wonders of the Scandinavian peninsula, their moose warning sign is far more charming and well-designed than the Swedish one, too.
In other completely unrelated Scandinavian news, yesterday marked 200 years since Sweden and Norway made peace and ended the last war Sweden actively took part in. 200 years of peace, not bad.

Go Fish by Monica Langlois.
Players of Hearthstone (which I’ve recently gotten addicted to) may recognize this as the artwork used for the Fen Creeper card.
