Middle aged Singaporean media regulators rap about the national public-private content strategy

Whats Singapore like, anyways? nearby nations are shit holes (slavery, widespread poverty and corruption etc), but I never see these people being talked about. Present post excepted.


At least these guys aren’t fighting the material. So often with the stuff, the poor folks dragooned into making it are doing everything they can to distance themselves from it. But like Dante’s trip through hell, the only way out is through.

It’s better for the effort.


This proves beyond any doubt that - if it wasn’t obvious before - rap music is an edgy, rebellious youth-driven platform for change.

Nay, a platform for revolution.


Singapore is a first world tropical city… what’s there to say?

Low crime rate, low corruption, good food, high cost of living, the weather’s uniformly oppressive the whole year round. It’s easy to get around Singapore by public transit, but there isn’t much to do outside of work besides shop, eat and hang out in the gardens and parks. I wouldn’t want to live there (because Singaporean culture as a whole has nearly no concept of work-life balance and the government encourages that), but it’s a nice place to visit.
