North Korean BBQ is for old souls. People 30+ (figuratively and literally.)
The title, however, is a reminder for me and all of us, that no matter how hard life can seem. We are all very fortunate people to live where we live. In Kansas City, when we get lonely or depressed, we go gorge ourselves on delicious, molasses-based BBQ. In North Korea, they don’t get lonely or depressed. They don’t choose feelings or thoughts. North Koreans don’t eat BBQ. They eat octopus skin and fried white corn. I was looking through audio clips from old North Korean documentaries to mix in with the music, but honestly, I felt like I was being lighthearted about their situation, which is greatly serious.
I must remind you of something, though: THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL PIECE OF MUSIC. NO!
This is NOT a political statement, but an examination on the self-entitlement we feel while bathing in our own excess and drama. I’m sorry your boyfriend broke up with you, but treasure the good times you did have. Bump this mixtape as a way to help push those negative, volatile emotions out, BUT…always remember that below the surface, life is truly a beautiful, pleasant work of art for some of us. Unfortunately it takes looking at other people’s situations to realize that sometimes.
