North Korea

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a piece right now on North Korea...It's insane what is going on there, I had some idea that it was long gone, but it continues still now. My painting/typework thing is probably stupid and will make no impact, but I found several articles that are really mindblowing. I'll post some links for people to see. I had no idea how far this state has gone. Anyway I'm getting kind of drunk and depressing, I'm gonna grab a few more logs and throw them in the fire, drink a bit more, and work on this thing.

This german guy I used to know said that his friends set up a communist organisation and got themselves recognised by some international communist body and were then invited to a big convention type thing in North Korea and were shown around the country. I can't vouch for this being 100% legit but it's a possibility...

Watching these make me further appreciate the freedoms we as Americans are given, regaurdless of the lies we are told...At least we are have the knowledge and choice to not belive the lies. Most of these people don't know better and the ones that do know, know better than to go against the regime for fear of retaliation on the innocent.

 

Thank you for the eye-opener, gives me motivation to pursue my dreams beacause of free will I can.

That VBS TV special was gold. My fave bit was when he was doing Anarchy in the UK Karaoke style and the hosts just had no idea what the fuck was going on. And the 'most excellent table' ever designed by beloved Kim. It's just a fukn tilt table :)

NK propaganda posters are so awesome. I want one so bad.

 

I might be able to make this happen for you. I'll keep you posted.

You can travel there as a tourist any time of the year. You just have to do a little research.

 

My friends did this. Monitored 24 hours a day. No interaction with the locals. Mad restrictions. You also help fund oppression.

 

 

 

JUCHE POWER!
