Thanks to a friend for re-invigorating my interest in the North Korean government with this article: Kim Jong Il captures Japanese artists’ imagination.
It would have been nice to buy a T-shirt or something from there. However, I could have lived quite contently without knowing someone had depicted Kim Jong Il in Japanese-style bondage.
In observing the North Korean media, I eventually burned out. My mistake was trying to check the KCNA’s website every flippin’ day trying to make sure that I didn’t miss anything. The fact is that the KCNA’s not a scarce resource; it’s a gushing geyser of information that’s impossible to exhaust in a reasonable amount of time.
Best headlines from today:
- Profound Love and Total Dedication to Socialist Motherland Called for
- Crafty Trick of Japan to Evade Responsibility for Past Crimes Debunked
- Development of Indigenous National Cooking Culture [and they’re doing this with what food?]
