ON GANGNAM STYLE, MALAYSIA'S GANGSTA POLITICS, AND THE GLORY OF NEO-ROMANTIC ASIAN VULGARISM ..

ON GANGNAM STYLE, MALAYSIA'S GANGSTA POLITICS, AND THE GLORY OF NEO-ROMANTIC ASIAN VULGARISM ...
by Azly Rahman

Welcome to hypermodern Malaysia, in which entertainment, hedonism, and political ethics are all enmeshed -- the body, mind and soul become a location of Asian capitalist exploitation and the reason for new age political campaigning as well, for a party in need of vulgar votes.

The little known Gangnam district of Seoul -- of red lights and high class high fashion, and high level prostitution became a glitzy and neon-ified womb of the "Gangnam-style" of dancing in which women and men beome horses riding each other in public, to the sound of techno-disco watched by a billion people on youtube and made into a craze by those who cannot see the logic of Korean gangsta culture as it travels the global conveyor belt of high-speed high brow higly-prized artifact of Asian capitalism imitating the vulgarism and gangsta-ism of cheap and disabling culture of gangsta rap of East L.A. and the 'hoods in the Bronx.
...
Women in the video love pole-dancing on the subway train, strip-club style- Gangnam-style much to the the amazement perhaps of Reverand Sun Young Moon of the Korean Unification Chuch -- if he were still alive marrying people off by the hundreds.

But hey ... , we are in Malaysia -- where everything, including degenerating culture, can be imported lock, stock ,and barrel to the tune of few million US dollars here and there for quick fifteen-minute vulgar shot of a high intensity, high vulgarity performance ... a good 5 million Ringgit perhaps that can be used to build schools in the most impoverised areas where Gangnam-styled horses would not even survive for the lack of good grass to graze ...

Bless us all ... may we have a Blessed Chinese New Year with Barisan Nasional ... in Malaysia these days, anything goes .. why not .. why not .. why not ... let them eat Gangnam mooncakes -- so that PSYCHO this nation will become!

Salam,I met Azly couple of times in NY city and in New Haven.
Can we stop rock and roll? ....can we stop gangnam style?...born under the same
premise...freedom to exploit.
I don't distinguish liberal or religious thoughts.....these pseudo world
collides. I respect people who pushed these freedom and live lives.....in the
trenches.
Go gangnam style...live lives.
