Best Endtimes Ever

Reel 1. A British Instructional Films Production made with the co-operation of the British Broadcasting Corporation. A film about the standardisation of the English Language.

Kinda makes me want to watch the rest of The Hour.

Itoi You thought it was best to start from scratch, and still you would’ve gone either way?

Iwata It was important not to ruin the atmosphere of the project team. You can’t show up all of a sudden and destroy everything people have created until then. People aren’t persuaded by such ways. The positive atmosphere of the team is crucial in order to succeed. I decided it was best to present the team with suggestions, and have them take the pick. …

I like flying down with an umbrella to where people seem lost. Just like how it was with the “MOTHER 2” (EarthBound) project. (laugh)

Itoi (to the staff) You know… I think he really enjoys it.

All (laugh)

We are normally not that crazy about bundle sales, but this one is different. Bientôt l’été is part of this very interesting sci-fi bundle right now. We like the way they put together film, music, books and videogames, mixing the different forms of entertainment. This is pretty exciting and there should be more bundles like it… if there have to be bundle sales at all. hmm….

Already had Bientôt l’été but No Media Kings’s Ghosts With Shit Jobs is also in this bundle (affiliate link)! I got it. 😭

Minor successes are repeated back to you until you feel you are safe, and it may be suggested to you that you are on a roll. This will be sustained until you forget that there’s no way to cash out your chips, that every follower and favorite and retweet is in fact not a victory but an accumulated liability. Users that choose not to gamble will be expected to produce non-gaming revenue.

Cartoons achieve that almost sort of by accident all the time, because you cannot show everything: And every moment that you’re seeing something—like, the sight of a room with a cartoon character standing in it, it’s a drawing, and nothing else but that exists; but the point of a cartoon is to imply that there is this whole world that these characters exist in…. In order to enjoy it, you have to believe that that drawing’s real. But in order to believe that, you have to enter a sublime artwork, because you’re convincing yourself that this place exists, and it doesn’t, and everything you’re seeing is a little nod to the fact that there’s a bigger world that just isn’t there. And when we’re making it we have to believe that, too.
