This video offers some good context for, and discussion of the segment. Also, everybody says she was utterly clueless, just reading off a sheet of boring questions in autopilot, but I feel like toward the end she twigged with what was happening. I imagine someone in back scrambling to tell her to just keep going while they set up the next segment. Something about the way she says "Well Jon, thank you for your opinion" seemed curt, and suggested to me that they really were cutting him off prematurely. It'd be a crying shame if she was held responsible, when obviously they just called in the wrong Jon Hendren.
The trailer was so idealistic that it's hard not to be cynical about it. I'll still try the game out, but I feel like my experience will just be getting notifications every now and then and ignoring them. It'd be nice if the pursuit of Pokemon could connect you to nature and other people in the way the trailer promises, but it's too idealistic to inspire a lot of confidence in me. I don't believe in good things, apparently. Or at least I hate overhyped trailers. I'll still try it though. It seems like it can offer something a cut above what other app games do, and I don't doubt it'll deliver a halfway satisfying experience. Even if it does end up just being PokeWalker with GPS.
Hurry up and answer my life-defining question. Like, what's the point of your answer if it doesn't sum up your personal eternal truth? Ask the universe for your answer and give me a response which will sum up the final ultimate truth of the universe. Come on.
The most apt description of 'life' I can think of is trying to keep a balloon from touching the ground. You don't see the point, but you feel compelled to keep it going.
This post is more moving than pheos. "To make art" feels somewhat like an easy answer, like a business card you pull out of your wallet. That sounds rude, but it is rude. Your frank answer does not satisfy me pheo. Everyone should live with shadowknight's conviction, in whatever they do. Not that I'm saying that I have that conviction. But I don't satisfy me either. Shadowkights answer satisfies me, because it sounds like it satisfies him. This is inevitably existential, but pheo: your answer doesn't sound like it satisfies you.
