Pokémon rabbit hole Show more
I started playing Pokémon Go in April. Today I found a strange rabbit hole in the game when I asked what I thought an innocuous question that maybe was a sign I didn't watch enough of the cartoon and am not a real fan. "What does this logo mean? All it says is 'HF'." Was a villain team? A secret Pikachu loving anti-Pokemon Battling resistance league?
Today I learned about HYPEFEST. https://www.vox.com/the-goods/2018/10/8/17952040/hypefest-2018-brooklyn-hypebeast-adidas-streetwear-photos
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
