Dateline Pyongyang

You always know its going to be a good one when it starts with a North Korean dateline! This one we just love, actually we reckon we’re developing a bit of fetish (can we say that, or does it come out sounding just plain weird!?!) for that wacky place of bizzare synchronisation, anachronistic socialism, overt warmongering and sadly, a starving (in more ways than one), repressed population. And let’s not forget the major cult of personality and quite frankly really bad hair styles. Oh and we’re also big fans of their super stern newscaster that reads the anti-everything-but-North Korea news with such venomous vigour that we reckon she’s going to pop an artery in her brain one of these days. Actually, we just had a little brain episode ourselves – maybe the organisers of certain air cargo events could hire her as a co-host alongside that BBC guy. Wow, what a show that would be!

So yes, back to the issue at hand. First we have to confess this has nothing whatso- ever to do with air cargo (at least last time we talked about the country’s airline Air Korya), but it IS about something close to the hearts of ‘some’ of the Belly Ache gang – DISCLAIMER – we will deny knowing anything about anything should lawyers acting on behalf of the movie, software or music industry come knocking on our door.
