“Buildings have been man’s companions since primeval times” – Walter Benjamin
So there it is, the first video of the Korean Construction Site in Dunjeon, EVER. It’s an exclusive, a scoop you might say.
There’s not a lot to say that isn’t in the video. You might notice a crashing sound around the 4 minute 17 seconds mark: that’s just me unwittingly kicking one of those big flowerpots over, it’s actually not the first time that’s happened I must admit. The aeroplane at the end of the video was not planned at all, just a nice coincidence.
On the subject of music: I have been listening more to podcasts recently, as they are a lot easier to synch with the ipad than my own albums are at the moment. I’ve always liked the Beats in Space and Optimo podcasts, but I’m a relative newcomer to the excellent DJ History podcasts. I really like the plain, radio style of Bill Brewster and the selection of songs is uniformly great it seems. Anyway, this song is from one of the DJ History podcasts and it’s by Michael Kiwanuka, who was voted to be the voice of 2012 by Radio 1 would you believe.
If anyone can recommend any other good podcasts I’d be really interested to hear about them by the way, I’m becoming quite a fan of the format.
One more thing: please note that you can subscribe to this blog by clicking on the “Follow” button (which is either at the bottom of the page you’re looking at or in the top right, depending on how you come to this page I think). You can also follow my channel on Youtube, which may or not be pointless. I’ll certainly be uploading more videos in the future, but always through the blog I should think.
More Korean capers soon.
