I’ve never thought twice about the Goomba I stomp whenever I play a Super Mario game. Those days are over thanks to Filipe Costa’s brilliant little “First Person Goomba” short. The poor guy’s life flashes before his eyes right before Mario takes him out. It’s touching yet ultimately heart-wrenching as we know the fate of all Goombas who go up against the mustached plumber.
Okay, goddamn Evangelion 3.0, you fucking win! After seeing this six minutes of footage from wherever it happens in the movie, I’ve got to go back and watch the other two in anticipation of this craziness. I didn’t think that there was anything Eva could do that could possibly win me back and then this happened and my brain exploded. If you click on the CC link the video player, you can activate English or Spanish subs. Not sure how long this will last on the YouTubes, but it’s done its job at least for me. So help me, I actually want to see this damn thing now!
Seems like the JRA Evangelion commercials are continuing their story line. In this edition, we get to see the Eva Pony racing its ass off. As weird as this entire series is, Unit 1 looks kinda good as a horse. I love that Unit 2 and Unit 0 give us a “WTF” reaction. If Bandai releases model kits of Eva Ponies, I think I’d call that the beginning of Third Impact.
The Japan Racing Association (JRA) is looking for new fans and is targeting emo, rage-filled teens with daddy issues. That’s really the only explanation I can come up with for their new ad campaign which features narration from Kotono Mitsuishi who portrayed Misato in Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Not being a Brony myself, I wonder how well an Eva Pony would stack up against the My Little Ponys. Would it demolish all of the magic that is friendship or do the Ponys have powers that can withstand an AT Field?

This tribute short for 20 years of Cartoon Network goodness is absolutely phenomenal. It’s fun to see how all the characters interact with each other. It really feels like we’re seeing them hang out like actors off set.
I was going to say something snarky like “How to apply for a graphic design job without actually showing any graphic design,” but then I watched this fan film/application again and noticed all the little things that I hadn’t paid attention to on the first go around. The signs, the name tags, the binders, the title cards, all of those little things had to seem real, so real, in fact, that unless you were specifically looking for them, you wouldn’t notice them. Absolutely brilliant. Design on a film set needs to service the story. And the little bits that Adam Levermore put together for this piece do just that.
Good luck, Adam. Even if you don’t get the S.H.I.E.L.D. gig, I expect we’ll be seeing your credits in many a film in years to come.
