It’s gelion weekend – The Verge – fr


You have reached an important moment, perhaps not in history, or even in the grand scheme of your life’s long arc of love and fulfillment, but an important moment nonetheless. Should I spell it for you? It is 5 p.m. Friday. On the way for a long weekend.

What is a “weekendgelion” you might ask yourself? Obviously, this is the coat rack of “Weekend” and “Neon Genesis Evangelion”. You could have just googled this, but I get it – it’s your free time! I respect your commitment to do the bare minimum for the next three days. What a beloved ’90s animated series has to do with, as the creator of the video above says, the pursuit of COLD BEER, GOOD FRIENDS and FREEDOM? At first glance, absolutely nothing, except for his theme song – “A Cruel Angel’s Thesis”:

  • was memetic fodder because it was technologically possible for unpaid henchmen to insert it into unrelated media situations or properties.
  • was briefly the main character on Twitter this week, after a very real and official Olympic hockey documentary was fully rediscovered due to the song’s direct inclusion in its opening cut.
  • should be the anthem of all summer barbecues and pre-summer in the future.

You may not be in my time zone (Eastern Standard, the ideal time zone, New York numbah un babyyy), in which case this post isn’t for you yet or hopefully hasn’t made it to your screen because you’re already hanging from a hammock, covered in snack crumbs and lightly doused with the hedonistic leftovers of your drink of choice. Good work! Everyone, please remove Slack from your phone, throw said phone into the nearest ocean or body of freshwater, and climb up to the hammock guy. Not that this is a competition. The last thing anyone should be doing right now is putting in effort of any kind.

You arrived at the gelion weekend.

Congratulations.
