"FRIGHT 214" Segue: Empathy Thru Personification & Parody.....

    This thread was inspired by Wim Wenders' film Wings of Desire, where angels stand right beside mortals unseen, mind-reading & listening to all of their endless thoughts & desires.....

    This thread is also inspired by one-woman shows like Lilly Tomlin's "The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe", Whoopi Goldberg's Spook Show & Tracey Ullman's Live & Exposed. To be able to embody all the ups & downs of different characters on one stage. Well, RJers, the RJ OPEN FORUM is ur stage for this thread icon_smile.gif

    This thread was also inspired by the tasteless tweets from morons who made fun of the Korean pilots of "FRIGHT 214" & the "KTVU Reports Asiana Air Pilots Were 'Sum Ting Wong' & ''Ho Lee Fuk'" thread from yesterday. Refer to it for full context.....

    This is a game where u have to get in the head of someone other than urself. U have to personify what u think they think like. The object is to think like them, how they feel about whatever they like or don't like, like an actor does when he creates a character. Using words they would use, the accent they would use whatever race they are trying to speak English, the colloquial voice, grammar & slang they would use if u were to speak like them---create a parody monologue or dialogue snippet. The only qualifier is U CANNOT TARGET OR MAKE AN EXAMPLE OF ANY RJ MEMBER; otherwise, any persona or perspective u can personify is fair game icon_smile.gif

    This is ur opportunity to let it all out. Things u are too afraid to say cause u might be criticized for saying how u REALLY feel about an issue or perspective. And the more sardonic u can be, the better icon_smile.gif .....

    For example:

    If ur Asian u can personify/parody a country hick or redneck & talk about
    how they see & feel about Asians.....

    Or if ur in ur twenties u can personify/parody an old gay man & how he feels about having his advances be rejected by a twenty year old....

    Or if ur 6'2" u can personify//parody a gay dwarf or midget talking about having "game" by utilizing the lessons learned from watching the movie The Tao of Steve to pick up hot gay guys.....

    There are endless variations & scenarios. The object of the game is to get urself & us, the reader, to empathize with u. To get us to think like how u think ur persona ur personifying sees u......

    Again, this thread is a result of the "KTVU Reports Asiana Air Pilots Were 'Sum Ting Long' & 'Ho Lee Fuk'". If one were to follow thru & read my comments I made on THAT thread, one would see how THIS THREAD stems in response to the blatant moronic tweets from asswipes slandering the Korean pilots. I created this thread to undermine future insults thru self-effacement & awareness. By twisting it around, the power of the ridiculers is undermined in the naming & pointing out.....By personifying & putting urself in the shoes of the ridiculed, those who ridicule should become empathetic.....

    And at the end of each personification/parody, credit ur persona icon_smile.gif .....

    What other people think of me is none of my business.

    I do, however, empathize with other people having a human experience concurrent with our sharing of the same slice of the continuum of time.

    I think we are suppose to be something that we are not, act like what we are not, speak like what we are not and convince you we are what we are not by representing that view point. It's very simple.

    Personify/impersonate/embody---they're all synonyms for the same thing.

    In short, "be completely authentic in disingenuity".

    BINGO! icon_smile.gif

    It's seeing thru the eyes of the ridiculer (i.e.) seeing u seeing them....

    Do what actors do. They're always doing they're homework, studying people: observing people's mannerisms & physiognomy, they listen to people conversing next to them on a bus or bench or at a bar or wherever they may be; studying their inflections, the cadence of their voice & how they interact with others. They try to copy the words that came out of someone, say, an old lady talking about her son who passed away, whom they listened to on the bus. Personify, personify.... icon_smile.gif

    It's an odd kind of game. Somewhat familiar though.

    Kind of like a game that Caligula would force upon Senators, those of whom would not play would be burried to their heads and then savagely murdered for his court's entertainment.



    Oh Joy! What fun! Oh yes, let us play a game! Pass the eggs!

    I'll start it off:

    "Chinese, Koreans, Japanese, Vietnamese or whatever 'ese' they be---what's the difference?! They all look alike! They all look like funny-lookin' gooks to me! They all nothin' but chinks! And how in Hell can them little critters see with them squinty slanted little eyes? Open ur eyes God damn it!! Them funny-lookin' gooks! Shiiit!"

    ---Asian personifying a country hick/redneck

    (This sardonic snippet was inspired by the tasteless tweets from morons who made fun of the Korean air pilots of "FRIGHT 214". Refer to the "KTVU Reports Asiana Air Pilots Were 'Sum Ting Wong' & 'Ho Lee Fuk'" thread from yesterday for full context.)

    ...blah, blah, blah...


    Ahhhh! Not only has the one who is jaded started off his own game of racial stereotype and slur, but he has lowered the bar to include blasphemy as well!

    Here's another great game: "How many of the 'Seven Primary Character Defects' will the OP display before he finally gives up because he knows he's been revealed for the absolute 'HDGP*' tripe that he is?" game.

    In short, you now know what I (and probably others) REALLY think about your game AND as a side benefit you get to know that you are now exposed for being a shit stirring racist. Good night. Enjoy what the community may throw back at you...like eggs.
