Criminal Slang Presents: Banned in North Korea

What isn’t banned in North Korea? Ponder that while you listen to the latest compilation from Criminal Slang.

I read an article in the NY Times about people in N. Korea that are risking their lives by smuggling in cellphones, texting & phoning in reports inside the Hermit Kingdom. For the most part, their efforts are limited to the China/N. Korea border, due to the reliance of the fringes of the Chinese telecom network to provide signal; North Korea has no cellphone network.

With fresh thoughts of this & the Great Firewall of China lingering into Monday, I started to think of how Criminal Slang fits into the world at large. Half-jokingly, in an AIM convo, I suggested that Criminal Slang would definitely be Banned in North Korea.

Every song that I selected would certainly violate any number of policies limiting speech or expression. I capped it at seven, otherwise I’d be up all night. Take a couple of moments out of your day (a couple of sex fantasies worth of time at the most) and consider the struggle of our brothers and sisters around the world & what you can do at home to improve our own situations.

You can’t complain about giving foreign aid, if you’re not already going out of your way to help in your own community. It’s time for everyone to step it up a little more.
