Bono & “The Interview!”

U2-coffeeLights go down, it’s dark – because there’s no freaking electricity! North Korea – try to name a more f***ed up country on Earth than North Korea…You can’t! Yes, they’re doing the atomic bomb and they want you to sing along, but most North Korean citizens can’t because 99% of the population are starving. Besides, there’s a reason why you haven’t heard the sweetest melody in North Korea – You’ll get your Pyongyang shot off for singing.

Pity the nation that won’t listen to its boys or girls, middle aged, elderly or anybody else living north of the 38th parallel. Forget about Seconds, most North Koreans are still looking for their firsts. We eat and drink, while tomorrow they die of starvation. Sure, you can see China right in front of you, but many trip through the wires (barbed wires, that is) and end up spending their remaining days making smaller rocks out of bigger rocks in one of their hidden labor camps.

Some dissidents even described a torture so sinister and deviant, that it violates all 30 Human Rights, with a double violation on #27 – forcing those who tried to escape to listen to smuggled in versions of U2’s “Your Blue Room” on repeat for days. The inhumanity! The goal is Seoul! Destruction of Seoul, South Korea, Tokyo, Japan and even the land that Elvis ate, if anyone interferes with the small man (Kim il Un) with big ideas. Actually, everyone in North Korea is small because of malnutrition. North Korea has 65 years plus of a totalitarian government that has run rickshaw over the Korean Peninsula, and until the world figures out how to dismantle an atomic bomb in the hands of a nut, North Korea will continue to wage War on its citizens.

Now, apparently, North Korea is up in arms over the new Seth Rogen / James Franco movie, The Interview, which will be released in October. The two main characters, a news reporter and producer, land an interview with the dear leader, Kim Il Un and subsequently plan an assassination attempt. Needless to say, this isn’t flying very well north and south of the Yalu River. How Bono’s, The Million Dollar Hotel movie didn’t cause a nuclear holocaust is still one of the world’s great mysteries. To put this enigma into U2 terms, criticizing North Korea’s government is equivalent to listening to most of Pop and NLOTH back to back…deadly!

If the world truly wants to salvage what’s left of North Korea, we don’t need the military, political pundits, the Pope and the holy cross, the Red Cross or Christopher Cross (remember him?). We need Bono! That’s right, Bono. After five minutes in North Korea, Bono will have Kim Il Un, dictator of one of the poorest countries on earth, donating everything that hasn’t been shot or sold on the black market to the One or Red Foundation. Bono will look across the fields of mourning, to a light that’s in the distance, a red-orange glow, and realize that millions continue to run scared in the valley below because there is a lunatic who’s ready, willing, and able to launch a nuclear bomb. But fear not! Bono knows how to dismantle an atomic bomb. Super Bono can do anything….except put out a new CD in less than five years. Bono, North Korea needs your mediation services and they needed them yesterday. Go straighten this out, but first release the new CD. Priorities! Just some food for thought since North Korea has only crumbs from the table.

    Ah, a great cup of coffee to warm the heart. 😉

    After reading this post I think the only thing North Korea can be grateful for is that they’ve not had a plague of Fly(s).

    I heard there’s an even worse kind of torture for the naughty ones…90 days in a deep dark cellar listening to Invisible … After you get out of there, if you do, you’re invisible…same status as U2’s new album !!!

    Good one Chris, but most people in a North Korea are invisible, out of sight, out of mind. This rogue nation has been allowed to terrorize way too long. It needs to stop!

    An Atomic Bomb attack that they can’t LEave BEhind is Deadly…when a No Line On the Horizon Phenomenon POPs up..everyone is happy and relaxed and they listen to those albums back to back to forget the dungeon and Invisible, especially the ones that were Imprisoned and like a Native Son struck by Vertigo, are now Free !!!!

      Shame on you for being so young,Chris. Christopher Cross was one of the best soft rock song writers & performers of the 70’s & early 80’s.

    Yeah right…I know about Louis, Ella, Stan Getz, Jobim, Fats Walter, Dave Brubeck, Led Zep, Scorpions, Queen, Bee Gees…This just goes to prove that Cross was a bad song writer and performer !!!

    Chris, you need to expand your horizons. Those you mentioned are s great writers, but Christopher Cross is incredible. Check him out. He was a hit machine back in the day.

    I am expanding them…It has to do with a phenomenon called No Line on the Horizon..which occurs very often here in Romania…

    I don’t think Romania was a big tour destination for Chris Cross back in the day. 😉

    Joe, that´s an excellent blog about the horrible political system of North Korea. It´s a shame that dictatorship still exists nowadays. It´s sad that the country´s population has to suffer from so much starvation. If Super Bono had the power to help the poor people of North Korea to see more humanity and food…

    Chris: I was thinking Christopher Cross sang ‘The Lady in Red,’ but that was Chris DeBurgh. You know how u like that soap opera w/the character ‘Alma’? (Btw: is she still in bed, sick or having a baby? Lol.) Well, 1 of the most famous soap operas here for years was ‘General Hospital.’ Maybe its most famous couple was ‘Luke & Laura.’ Christopher Cross wrote & sang a song called ‘Think of Laura’ & the soap used it for the show. In real life, he wrote it in memory of his girlfriend’s or wife’s roommate, Laura, who was killed by, I think, a stray bullet.
    .
    .
    “Hey Laura…every once in awhile, I’d see her smile, & she’d turn my day around…A friend of a friend, a friend to the end, that’s the kind of girl she was…taken away without a warning…”

    No…The Soap Opera ended months ago…Alma got better, got married…Had a child…Now I’m watching (they are airing a re-run) “the Clone” Brazilian-2001-Soap Opera (GloBo Tv international production)…otherwise I can’t find it on torrents !!! I also would like to watch again a soap-opera from when I was very little that aired here : “Sheik” with Araceli Gonzalez and Gustavo Bermudez…But since it’s not airing on a local channel and I can’t find it…I’ll have to wait and hope !
    I don’t know about General Hospital, the only US-made soap-operas that aired here were : Sunset Beach, the Young and the restless (still airing), E.R. (with George Clooney),Dallas, Ally McBeal, Grey’s Anatomy, House M.D. (my favourite)…and many more I can’t remember now…

    How the world has allowed North Korea to continue is a travesty. I know it’s a diplomatic nightmare & good people are working on it, but it’s been too long!

    Mid-night. Can’t sleep. Decaf Joe sounds good! 😀
    .
    JAMES is right! Poor souls of N. Korea need to hear ‘Sailing!’ And the government goons there need to hear it to soothe the savage beast.
    .
    Joe’s comment reminds me: let me just throw a ‘Thank u’ out to the universe – in case the diplomacy of some good people wanting to un-trench some trenches (dug for too long) are partly what I have to thank for Zhivvy inviting me back to zoobloggers. See what I did w/your comment Joseph? 😀 Although the paragraph I posted there was from the heart, it couldn’t plumb the depths of my heart & soul on things: for ex, no room in that paragraph-town to touch upon the role I originally played in making some folks want to dig a trench in the 1st place back in 2012. ANYways…uh oh – if it’s against etiquette to mention another site on your webpage, Joseph, then u only THINK I did. Pretend it’s invisible! And Chris – pretend u didn’t just see that word (the 3-syllable one beginning w/ ‘i’)!
