North Korea is an enigma wrapped in a mystery veiled in secrecy, mostly thanks to the efforts of their megelomaniacal dictator, Kim Jong Il and his father before him. Aside from his notable collection of stellar shades, Kim Jong Il is best known for his prowess as the most tyranical dictator on the planet, a title one imagines he gladly represents. As the good dictator is in the twilight of his fear-inducing career, he has been vetting his youngest son, Kim Jong Eun to take over his reign of terror when he is gone. The Eun one has been made general of the vast, yet technologically devoid North Korean army, and will likely be appointed leader/dictator/secretary of terror once his pops finally kicks the bucket. The good people at NMA put together this humorous animation so the world can better understand the vetting process in North Korea - looks like they don't think much of the "great leader" either...
PS If you still aren't convinced North Korea is the strangest place on the planet, check the VBS Documentary on North Korea. It's sad yet humorous, and might be the most comprehensive journalism done on the subject - even CNN defers to Vice's Shane Smith in matters of Kim Jong Il's renegade nation. No, seriously...
This track is crack. Laid back 80s lounge lizard stee - premium saucy. Robert Palmer was a sincere boss. RIP.

Nostalgia. I liked drug commercials back in the eighties, when they weren't depressing, I guess it's weirder that I liked drug commercials at all when I was little. I always thought it was funny how phony they were.
Wiz Khalifa is slaying the game right now, touring the country, making moves and dropping collabos with all the right people (including "Superhigh" with ROSS). Dude is definitely putting Pittsburgh on the map, which hasn't had anyone rep the city with a swagger since the "the Lumber Company" days of the Pirates in the 70s. Keep shining, keep smoking; roll them doobies up...
This is the first single of Kings of Leon's upcoming album, "Come Around Sundown"(due 10.19). I'm feeling the song, not sure how I feel about the video (contrived, yes. but well-done nonetheless). The black children running gleefully with a band of whiteboys is a little much if you ask me (kinda like an ad for 2010 WorldCup), but it will fly. I guess the gospel chorus somehow ties it all together? Either way, these Kings are following the meteoric success of their last album with a banger, and for me that's all that matters. This is some fiery driving music, get me my car keys, Jeaves...
This song is so viral it almost makes me sick (close to 10 Mil. views in a month?). However, you gotta love how Cee Lo knowingly dropped a track with a vulgar hook so infectious, that even mainstream radio couldn't ignore it - the radio edit I heard whilst in Cali was absolute trash, you can't edit a song like this, it just has to live on the web. So, "fuck you," not you Cee Lo, you're slaying-it right now.
