gonna watch the Kill Yr Idols doc (via Netflix Instant Streaming)
Great documentary despite lydia lunch being a pretensions bitch about anything made after the 80s and The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Gogol Bordello, and Liars kinda being randomly thrown in at the end. Don’t get me wrong, they’re awesome bands, but I felt that really only Liars have any connection to a modern day continuation of No Wave aesthetics. All in all, it’s definitely a documentary worth watching for anyone interested in post punk.
I’ve always been fascinated about North Korea. What’s even more fascinating is how these hi-res propaganda posters got out of that politically isolated socialist country. This one translates “Let’s extensively raise goats in all families!” among other posters which illustrates anti-US imperialism sentiments.
They also use nuclear threat to secure international food aid. Not bad for a ‘self-sustaining’ nation I’d say.
