Karaoke (Chinese KTV) is a favorite outlet for people, in China, today. They work long hours, six days a week with overtime, in jobs that give them no joy. So, when they have a day off or get their monthly paycheck, they celebrate with a bunch of friends, in a private room at a KTV, smoking, drinking, singing and playing games, trying to numb themselves into happiness. They are just a room full of slaves.
