Thanks a fucking lot. Now I got Pyramid Head stomping up and down my stairwell and the walls are rusty.

If I was able to consign millions to living in a recreation of Oceania, you’d better believe I’d wake them up every day with creepy dystopian music piped in through loudspeakers. What would be the point of being a totalitarian dictator if I didn’t do that?

Yet another standard of living the North Koreans have over the USA.

That’s totally designed to evoke a maudlin morning. Every morning.

But how do you snooze?

Also, that tornado siren is going to keep me awake tonight and I don’t even live anywhere near the tornado zone. That is terrifying.

Well a lot of the creep factor is the non-Western scale, which, to be fair, probably sounds just duckie to Koreans.

Sounds like part of the soundtrack to a creepy Italian giallo horror movie (or a modern horror film referencing the same).
