I’ve kidded Jamie Zawinski that I thought he wasn’t disturbed enough to have a LiveJournal, but I’m sure Kim Jong Il is. And lo and behold, it turns out that “beloved leader” actually has one!
Whoever’s writing it has got the LiveJournal writing style down pat, opting to write Kim Jong Il as a mopey teenager. Here’s a snippet:
I’m not feeling very good about myself today. I guess I build walls around myself because I don’t want people to get too close. Sometimes I wish I could just be normal and not such a Stalinist.
All the writer really needs to do to truly capture the LJ angsty flavour is use a black background and mood icons like:
|Today I am feeling:||ennui, but so what else is new?|
Here’s my favourite entry so far, a transcript of an IM chat between Kim and Bush. Some of you may find the conversation eerily familiar:
License2KimJongill: so listen, if you’re not doing anything next month, i thought it would be fun if maybe we did something
Bush43: LIKE WHAT?
License2KimJongill: i was thinking maybe you could come to pyongyang and maybe we could have nuclear negotiations
Bush43: YEAH! IT SOUNDS LIKE FUN! I’LL INVITE RUSSIA AND JAPAN AND CHINA AND ALL THOSE GUYS. AND MAYBE WE SHOULD HAVE IT AT MY HOUSE INSTEAD
License2KimJongill: oh, um……
License2KimJongill: i kind of thought it would be more fun if it was just us
Bush43: WHAT, YOU MEAN JUST THE TWO OF US?
Bush43: ONE ON ONE?
License2KimJongill: yeah! over here in pyongyang. we could watch the mass games and go frolicking on Mount Paektu. there’s this rainbow
Bush43: I THINK THAT MIGHT BE WIERD
License2KimJongill: what do you mean?
Bush43: LOOK I’M STILL GETTING OVER THIS SADDAM THING OKAY? I THINK I ALREADY TOLD YOU SADDAM IS STILL IN MY LIFE. SO I JUST DON’T THINK IT’S A GOOD IDEA RIGHT NOW
Bush43: I’D STIL LIKE TO GO BUT I THINK RUSSIA AND JAPAN AND CHINA SHOULD COME TOO. WE COULD DO A GROUP THING
License2KimJongill: you know what…just forget it
