Sneaking Into North Koreatown



Neatorama posted an item about a community of North Korean expatriates in London, and Daniel Kim assured us that there is a similar enclave in New York. This video explains, and tries to bridge the gap between Koreatown and North Koreatown.

September



Do you remember the 21st of September? Earth, Wind, and Fire debuted this song in 1978. It takes me back to college. NPR has an entire article about why this song is so popular after all these years.

Metástasis



Univision’s series Metástasis follows the adventures of Walter Blanco, a mild-mannered family man who turns to manufacturing drugs when he is diagnosed with cancer. Yes, it’s Breaking Bad all over again, with a few differences. Mainly, it’s in Spanish. But while we waited for six years to find out what happens, Univision showed an episode of their version every weeknight, starting in June, and the final episode aired Thursday night. That’s almost like binge-watching! See some comparisons between Metástasis and Breaking Bad scenes at the A.V. Club, and see more scenes from Metástasis at YouTube.  (via mental_floss)

Ouvre-Moi!



This cat wants in, and he won’t take no for an answer! The dialogue is on French, but check the subtitles. In this version, it’s not even his house! The original video was already funny, but with dialogue added, it’s completely ridiculous. It was dubbed by Faireset, the same guy who gave us Dansons la Capucine and Cats and Mirrors.

Rush Hour



This video of traffic during rush hour will probably make you nervous -if you’re an American. Those who have driven in other countries may see it as an everyday occurrence. Relax, it’s not a documentary. This art video was directed by Fernando Livschitz of Black Sheep Films, but I still don’t know for sure if it’s all editing and CGI, or if he used stunt drivers. Considering the other films by Fernando Livschitz I’d go with “masterful editing.” (via Buzzfeed)

That Makes Sense

Junior Dance Battle



You know how kids love to try out what they see adults do? These three siblings staged their own dance battle earlier this week. ShoateZoo’s kids are ages 6, 4, and 2. The two older ones are great dancers, but if it was put to an audience vote, the two-year-old would win just for being adorable. (via Daily Picks and Flicks)

Trucker's Hitch



The Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis has a new song about tying a knot. No, not tying “the” knot, but a real rope knot. It’s kind of like, “Let’s make a nice little song about the first thing that comes to mind, as long as it’s random.” And it’s a decent tune, if a little odd. Then suddenly, the song changes into a dance instructional, and that’s really weird. Does this song have something to do with another part of their TV show, maybe something about knots? Or are they trying to see if they can start a new dance craze? (via Laughing Squid)
