Everybody is watching this movie now !

A brilliant publicity stunt has catapulted an otherwise B grade comedy into an international sensation.

Satire at its finest ... who knows it may even have political consequences.

More Kim Jong il satire ...

Drudge thought it other in his headline:
FREEDOM TO MAKE CRAP! 
From the December 25, 2014 22:40:43 GMT edition of the Drudge Report.


Well the movie itself seen outside of the controversy is such a different thing that i would probably not have watched it or just expected a B grade movie.  I hated Goldberg's performance ... but loved Grogan and Randall Park's and even the girl's.  That it was a ridiculous plot inspired by the real rediclicous situation in North Korea worked for me ... and there is some pretty funny shit in there that i am sure you will get off on if you let it .  They made the DPRK look real stupid ... that's why they have reacted to it so strongly ... but i am thinking there is enough truth in there that even that society over there will do a tilt on what they are doing.  That is my twist on this ... i hope i am right.

Well they both relate to diminishing self image, or ego.  The emotions involved are quite different.  As you observe, the one can take the sting out to the other. 

Put yourself in Kin Jong Il's shoes, but with your American comprehension of the movie, would you not be ashamed?  It would be the true part of the plot that would sting ... but if you were Kim, would you let it sting ... or would you lash out?  What part of you would defend itself ... and how?

The common people of the Norks will never see it.
... yep.  

And even the elite Norks who are privileged will probably comprehend it quite differently than we Americans.  Still and all there are people there who have seen it and comprehend it sufficiently to have become humiliated by it.  Their reactions have become part of the plot of this international event ... strangely as if they were within the movie itself.  I've even thought ... now bear in mind that this is just a day dream here ... that Obama has intentionally scripted the whole thing. 
Humiliation is not necessarily a function of comprehension. A little humility is a good thingy sometimes. Obama should apprehend some.
Here is an Esther (Abraham) YouTube on humility & ego which may apply but could make as much sense as what you peddling.

Well i meant that, if the norks understood the movie, they should be embarassed.  Like showing a child how stupid they were being and saying, "Shame on you".  Of course if they don't understand it, they are likely to puke it out their mouths ... who knows ... maybe send a nuke over. People don't like to see themselves and frequently re-project the image, once seen, outside of themselves so they don't need to absorb the sting.  Strangely enough that was what Kim Jong Il did in the movie itself.

... yes interesting ... lots of stuff in there that works for me ... lots of other stuff that seems to me just the LOA baggage most of which i haven't the inclination to matriculate within. 

None of it has anything to do with the humiliation or shame or embarrassment that a person feels when they see themselves stupidly in someone else's eyes.   Humility is not humiliation ... they are almost opposite licks.
Humility is the cure for humiliation.

... maybe so ... 

Eiamyme says
Yep - same for me for the monkey & Obama.

If someone fabricates a fiction about me should I be ashamed?  I think not! I am more likely to return the favor like :
NKOREA CALLS OBAMA 'MONKEY'... ^ 
From the December 27, 2014 05:33:59 GMT edition of the Drudge Report.


Well frequently there is part of a mock which rings true... that part, if it is new, usually affects me .. but not if i already know about it.  The fiction, fabrication, or twist or exaggeration might anger me if i let it. 

in this case, there was quite enough truth to embarrass and quite enough exaggeration and twist to anger.  I can almost see Kin Jong Il reacting in the same vein as in the movie.

the beat goes on ...

source: CNN breaking news

The United States is hitting North Korea with a new set of economic sanctions after determining the country was behind last month's computer hack at Sony.

The White House said new rules would prevent leaders in North Korea's government from accessing property and entering the United States. North Korea, which has denied involvement in the Sony hack, was already subject to a strict set of U.S. economic restrictions.

The FBI has maintained that North Korea was behind the broad computer breach at Sony, despite evidence from some technology experts that points, instead, to former employees of the studio.
