Son of End of Ze World
« on: January 22, 2018, 03:59:41 AM »
The world is full of vids I don't make the time to watch, but this one is worth the four minutes.

Here's the Sequel to 'End of Ze World,' the First Viral Video Ever

Here's the Sequel to 'End of Ze World,' the First Viral Video Ever

Image: Jason Windsor

The new “End of Ze World” video looks just like the original for exactly two seconds. A few moments later, the long-awaited sequel to what many call the world’s first viral video displays a collage of missiles, pumpjacks, a Nazi flag, a hurricane, and protest signs. Your eyes will immediately drop to the one that says boldly, “WTF?!” This is “End of Ze World… Probably for Real This Time,” and it’s haunting.

 

The update comes from Jason Windsor, the same mind behind the “End of Ze World” video that took the baby internet by storm in 2003. Now a father of two and a professional animator, Windsor, 33, never really wanted to make a sequel to his surprise smash hit, a video that entertained and scared an entire generation before YouTube even existed. Why mess with a treasured bit of internet history?

“No one likes a sequel that’s not as good as the original. :)” Windsor told Gizmodo in an email. “But watching 2017 unfold made me want to make something. Maybe it’s just a way to deal with my own fear and anger and frustration.”

Which sounds a lot like what inspired the first “End of Ze World” video. It appeared on sites like eBaum’s World and Albino Blacksheep not long after the United States invaded Iraq, and kids old enough to comprehend the September 11 attacks really did feel everything was about to come crashing down. The wars did drag on, and many people died. But then, within five years, Barack Obama took the oath of office, and George W. Bush disappeared to Texas and took up painting. The world did not end.

Fast-forward to 2018. This is the bad shit. A bilious former reality TV star with a taste for conspiracy theories is in the White House bragging about the size of his nuke-launching button, while North Korea ponders the quickest route to American annihilation. The already terrified people of Hawaii are recovering from a false alert about incoming ballistic missiles, commanding them to “seek immediate shelter.”

 

The craziest thing is that these events happened after Windsor had already finished animating the new “End of Ze World.” Even still, the would-be doomsdayer sounded optimistic on the eve of the new video’s premiere.

“I’m certainly still hopeful we can avoid doing something silly like blowing ourselves up, or not listening to scientists when they’re like, ‘No seriously, shit’s effed, and we need to stop this,’” Windsor said. “But there’s also action to be taken right away to avoid that stuff.”

Reigniting the “End of Ze World” conversation with a fun yet pensive animation is Windor’s way of doing that. Watch it. Watch the original. Watch the new one again, and then send it to your friends. And then close your computer. Go hug a scientist. Protest the new nuclear proliferation. Run for office.

 

Whatever you do, don’t let the apocalypse happen while you’re watching internet videos.

PS. Just in case you forgot how great it was, here’s the original “End of Ze World.”

Nobody wants to take the end of the world seriously, not even Doomers.  They fill in their time watching childish cartoon videos, posting endless pictures of things to eat, dreaming about million dollar yachts, and women with and without tits.

The matrix is disintegrating as we and Gaia transition through the trinity super moon gateway. The fabric of our fixed holographic reality is unravelling, we are experiencing quantum awakening. A portal of light flooding us in zen wavelengths, triggering DNA upgrades. Recalibration. Coming online as energetic beings activated into hyper reality, we are catapulted into a chasm of chaos. From this chaos will rise a new earth. Gaia has had enough, the cosmos has come to her aid. Her travellers, her tribes, her people transition with her to higher planes of existence.

Heart chakra activation can be felt as fluttering, spinning, flipping sensations in centre of our chest. Timeline switches, loops and Mandela effects are palpable, as our consciousness expands, our perception of reality bends and oscillates. This creates a heightened awareness of the moment, choice, different timelines spinning off in front, behind and all around us. We are transforming and our understanding of the world around us is changing. Coincidence becomes synchronicity. Numbers take on a life of their own. Time becomes fluid accelerating and slowing down, the walls of our reality breathe. It’s getting really trippy friends. Breathe into the waves of high frequencies. Allow changes to occur. Our bodies are lightening. We are organic beings in this lifetime. A trinity temple of light and love, mind, body and soul. We fly up and down the frequency spectrum still experiencing waves of third dimension paranoia, fear and confusion. These bouts lessen in frequency and intensity the more we embed our vibration into higher wavelengths.

Our mission is to reach across the third dimension polarity, duality chasm and share light, knowledge and wisdom of oneness, beauty, peace and progress. Cutting off from those we disagree with is to renege on our contract. To meet fear with compassion. Hate with patience. Hostility with shield up love. To separate ourselves into bubbles of fifth dimension zen is tempting. We do and should indulge in this through meditation, dance, nature, soul tribe and yoga. We balance by grounding, not floating off into hyper space. Knowing when to step back and let universal karma resolve situations, when to speak up and stand our ground, when to back down and show forgiveness, these are the lessons of the fifth dimension. Lessons we are all learning. None of us is better or worse, everyone has a heartbeat, be they of Reptilian, Arcturian, Plaiedian descent, lightworker or darkworker or any of the myriad of astrogenetics seeding Gaia. We all exist in this organic plane of dimensional experience. Avoid derision of unawakened people, many would be surprised by the depths of these ripples of awakening, and may not see through the avatars presented in the matrix. Stay kind people even when the world slumbers as she ascends.


The fourth dimension is being healed also as we travel up and down through 4th dimension frequencies. This shakedown of karmic energy is liberating many lost souls wandering the fourth realm. It is illuminating the darkness skulking in the astral plane, parasites and devilish entities who have fed off humanity for too long. Fifth dimension light streams in, there is no place to hide. As the shakedown intensifies human hosts of astral entities may exhibit more of the characteristics of their demons, as they come to the surface for clearing. Meditation, reflection, emotional release, holistic and talk therapy can all help this process. There are specialists in the area of releasing attachments who can perform this process energetically. As the vibrations raise, this process of release is becoming easier, healing the fourth dimension is rolling out as we speak.

We may become more aware of fluidity in our dimensional perceptions. Shadows in corners take form, shape, some may see clearly passed on relatives, hear voices of loved ones, receive clear gifted messages as the fourth dimension reaches its redemption. A space for communication it has served humans in complex ways throughout our time on Gaia. A bridge between the third and upper dimensions the fourth is a call centre, an astral plane buzzing with activity. Still caught in lower vibrational fields duality is rife here. Our loved ones can visit us here, able to reach our wavelengths, they then return to higher planes of existence. The fourth realm is home to entities unwilling or unable to cross over to love frequency. They are caught in negative cycles of hate, envy, addiction, fear and greed. They haunt the third dimension matrix and serve to build fear into our atmosphere. As Gaia rises the fourth realm is being healed in love vibration. A quantum evolution of mystical proportions, surrendering to love, relinquishing all negativity can and will heal many millions of third and fourth dimension souls.

We are being freed from a cycle of slavery. Our heightened awareness reinstates our sovereignty, our energetic balance, our core strength. Our heart chakras are activated, we aspire to heart led living. We are switched on by gratitude, compassion, we surrender to universal love light. Our third eye has been opened, we can see through the veils of deception in the matrix and through dimensional realities in our universe. It’s quite a ride cosmic soul brothers and sisters. There is no pressure, no hierarchy, no competition in the fifth dimension. We travel through the time space continuum learning, growing, expanding our consciousness as souls of the multi verse. We are stepping into a new universe of light where we can rebuild this world with respect for Gaia and ourselves. All are welcome, none are excluded. We set the dial of our own vibration. We are the owners, the creators of our reality, our future. In love, peace and light beautiful people. Namaste.

Mantras: I am one with universal love light.

I ask my higher self to power up the shield of love that surrounds me at all times.

I share love, I receive love, I am love.

Namaste.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
You don’t know what it is but its there, like a splinter in your mind

What's your point? LOL.

It's a bad idea to take human existence too seriously. It's guaranteed to break your heart, if you do.

Hi Eddie, My take on Palloy's statement is different.

It opens up a Pandora's box of just what we here are all about.

Broken hearts are for lovers, Doom is something else entirely different.  :icon_scratch: :dontknow:

We all face individual doom.  No way around it.  Being aware of the finality of life can make every day precious. 

I had one of these in my garden last week.  Ate it Saturday.  They have a nutty taste.  Good.



Sometimes life is good, so until Ze End of Ze World, Enjoy.

I finally watched the videos. Incredible art. I'm trying to remember if I actually watched the first one before. I think I did, but maybe it's a false memory. You posted it here? I seem to remember. It's too bad we aren't as good at powering down and permaculture as we are at animation.

I was blown away by the latest. I have no recollection of having posted the first one, but anything is possible.

In terms of powering down and permaculture, if there's not an app for that, we can't be bothered.
