North Korea’s (recent) Military Parade

This was just too good not to relay. Given major headlines today, the rhythm of their blind marching seems even more cryptic, and confronting with chaos. A big shout out to Mr. Burrows, wearing a suit and tie over there at craigburrows.com. He made a great short out of several original pieces of video from behind The Kimchi Curtain. Great title for a K-blog by the way. Add another one to the pot! Both are posted below.

The Hermit Kingdom allowed international media to watch its largest ever military parade – part of the campaign to establish Kim Jong-il’s youngest son as the leader-in-waiting.
