    Group 1: Not bad. Slow start. Catchy. The look that says, “I’m going to be fed to starving dogs if I mess up.” takes something away from the performance.

    Group 2: Singing sucks. Lyrics suck. Was going to get my vote anyway, then out popped a South Korean Justin Bieber. WTF?

      It is about what you would expect. The dictatorship offers us martial music and the free nation gives us decadence. What is interesting, however, is that free people or slaves, everybody likes babes.

  2. R.D. Walker says:

    Of course nothing says you can’t be both traditional and decadent as this Polish video proves.

    First group. Not real norks, too well fed. They meet with the elite to eat.
    Second group. Nope. Their “music” hurts my ears.
    Gotta vote for the Polish.

    I prefer the demure posture of the first video. The second shows everything I hate about western “future”.

    They’re all hot. Too bad the norks couldn’t afford whole instruments.

  5. R.D. Walker says:

    Here is Moroccan/Egyptian pop singer Samira Said singing in Arabic evidently for the sole purpose of confusing the hell out of you.

    I’m going with the North Koreans on this one. Better music. Having a hard time taking bleach blonde South Koreans seriously. Beyoncé style nastiness of dance is just nasty anywhere in the world that it’s done.

  7. R.D. Walker says:

    There is some serious business going down in this video.

  8. R.D. Walker says:

    I am not a fan of K-Pop but I love me some free will. The Norks are slaves who wish they could shake their moneymakers like the libertine lolitas in the second vid. Give me flagitious freedom over sanctimonious slavery every time.

    • notamobster says:

      We all agree, of course. I just don’t understand who free has to mean “acting like a whore”.

      I remember the last marmelade video, they interviewed the hookers who performed. One of the vacuous twits said “this is the epitome of the modern, independent woman”. They were dressed in character, as prostitutes.

  9. R.D. Walker says:

    I am considering taking up the accordion. Thoughts?

    • MadBrad says:

      You will be a one man party everywhere you go.

      LMT asks if you’re drunk.

    • notamobster says:

      There’s some amazing zydecko music. Makes you want to dance, that stuff.

      Back in Munising, there was a weekly polka hour on TV. It was old polish people. No real point, just one of the few times I’ve heard/seen the accordian in action.

  10. R.D. Walker says:

    If you don’t speak Portuguese there is probably no reason to watch this as you won’t know what they are singing about.

  11. R.D. Walker says:

    Now we are off to the Subcontinent for a little Hindi hotness.

  12. R.D. Walker says:

    Next stop on our shameless globalist journey we travel to the Levant for some Hebrew hotness Straight Outta Hafia.

  13. R.D. Walker says:

    I am sorry. I don’t know what I was thinking in this thread. Let me get back on track.

    Trade deficits are not necessarily macroeconomic phenomena. We shouldn’t assume a country’s current-account trade deficit is macroeconomic in nature or that it reflects a shortfall of domestic savings. Foreign investment occurs of its own volition and isn’t an artifact of domestic savings shortfalls.

    Before she dressed like a slut.

    Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Britney, Christina, Taylor, Rhianna, Beyonce… All talented, all beautiful, all degrade themselves by selling sex instead of just selling music.

  15. sortawitte says:

    I was just doing some financial things on the ‘puter. In the background was Electric Light Orchestra and ELO”s Biggest Hits.
    Good tunes with orchestra backing, good lyrics. No whiney shit.

    Best comment thread EVER!

  17. RJM says:

    For some reason I’m reminded that parts or oriental women are sideways compared to other women being up and down.

    I don’t have personal knowledge, however, their may be some of our esteemed writers that have more “clinical” knowledge.

    • Ray Davies says:

      Only seems that way sometimes RJM, Only feels that way. My favorite line used to be, “There ain’t nothing wrong with me that couldn’t be cured by a week in a Hong Kong Whorehouse,”. That’d kill this old man now, Or the Boss Lady would.
