Back in Korea

Earning the King’s Coin in the Land of the Morning Calm... again.  At least for a short period of time anyway.  It’s nice to be back visiting my second home, but my sleep schedule is all frakked-up.  So now I’m sitting up in the middle of the night in my hootch listening to Joe carousing outside, rolling in and out of the gate after a long night of drinking and and trying to seduce juicy girls.

I love Joe.

    Reminds me of a question or two I meant to ask.

    Gangnam Style is supposed to be some sort of social commentary. Can you explain that side, and what is your opinion?

    Also, do you follow Manhwa enough to have an opinion or any favorites?

    I’m afraid I can’t help you with either one of those inquiries…

    If “Gangnam Style” is meant as some sort of social commentary I guess I don’t understand it. The singer is an established Korean pop artist who was educated in the United States, who likes alchohol and presumably… women. I think his commentary is that he likes to get drunk and bang hot chicks—though I might be wrong. The Koreans that I know have not noticed any deep messaging and they are tickled pink that the song is popular in the States.

    Psy in the meantime makes obnoxious amounts of money, gets drunk, and bangs hot chicks. And I salute him.

    As far as Manhwa is concerned I have no opinion.

    “Gangnam Style” is supposedly based on the Gangnam area in Seoul. Its glitzy, hip, happening and stylish and in many ways a direct representation of South Koreas wealth and affluent look and outlook. If any social commentary is to be read into this, its very simple: Look at us! We are awsome! We have money and technology, beautiful woment and we party like rock stars! It takes a certain attitude to pull that off and not look silly and, quite frankly, the SoKos do it well. Im sure it drives the neighbors up North crazy, but that in itself makes it even cooler. Goood on them!

    I figure Gangnam Style was a secret psy-ops product developed by the South Korean government to cause North Korean leadership to shoot themselves.

  5. I thought Gangnam Style was a call-to-arms signal for middle aged chubby gay Korean dudes to invade DragonCon. I could be mistaken as I do tend to nip at the bottle a bit…

    Now for the real shit, all you guys are talking about is some fat bastard from Korea. I was bouncing in a bar in the late 70’s at a bar on South Street in Philly. The band was George George Thorogood and The Delaware Destroyers. I asked him why he played slide on the guitar. His answer was that while he was a singer they couldn’t afford another member of the band and he had to learn the fastest way to play guitar.

    He was a very cool dude. We all did shots after the bar closed. As I understand it they were actually based up north in NYC or Boston, but loved to come to that area. I guess he had several records out but had not hit the high life. That occurred a few years later.

    Does this mean that Thorogood is doing Gangnam style now?
