Now, Square Enix released the music movie for “Flow,” a person of the principal theme tracks of Remaining Fantasy XIV: Endwalker, and close friends, it is a doozy. If you have function to do or need to be successful in any way now, do not, and I simply cannot pressure this adequate, look at this music movie.
I have by now drop 50 % of my body’s humidity in tears. It was cathartic and necessary and so very a great deal on time. And, for as a great deal as I really don’t take pleasure in trying to see by means of a curtain of drinking water that just really don’t seem to stop, I deeply and actually recognize this songs video’s skill to just get me to cease and experience.
Lifestyle, ideal now, isn’t regular. People today are dying of a sickness we really don’t seem to treatment more than enough about to end. Men and women cannot pay for to dwell persons can’t afford to pay for to feed their infants and people are not able to find the money for to stage out into the entire world without having dread of currently being murdered by armed white supremacists who we also don’t appear to be to care sufficient about to stop. This is not typical! And but, the mechanisms of capitalism make it this sort of that we should go on acting as though almost everything is fantastic and good and alright in buy to keep living.
I know that if I get a minute to assume about what occurred to my people today in Buffalo —people with names like my more mature aunts, uncles, and grandmothers — I will lie down in grief and not get again up once more. So, in get to continue to keep likely, I switched off. But along comes this foolish movie activity with these pretend people who suggest almost nothing in the grand cosmic scale of the world indicating, “Welcome and nicely met my brave minor spark,” and each and every emotion that I have heretofore have attempted to deny myself just to keep dwelling bubbled up and out, and it feels so unfortunate but so good that I have no words and phrases for it. I essential that reminder of my humanity. I required Hydaelyn’s message in the track that basically claims, “It’s alright, brave 1, I have got you.”
The issue that constantly will get me about Endwalker, why it’s the greatest MMO knowledge a person can have suitable now, is that it has this nuanced, mature conception of the cessation of life. As opposed to most video games, it doesn’t handle loss of life as an evil to conquer but as a continual companion to daily life — without trivializing the trauma of demise itself. In “Flow,” dying is a gentle and sweet relaxation that comes at the conclude of a stunning journey. And although it is not without the need of unhappiness, loss of life must in no way be satisfied with despair.
Hush, really like, near your eyes, and in rest abide
As sun’s distant mild, echoes down to goals, under
Know you will wake, on winds rise yet again
For this journey’s close is but just one phase ahead to tomorrow
All of Closing Fantasy XIV’s audio are bangers — from “Solutions” to “Dragonsong” and “Close in the Distance,” but “Flow” is specific. I have nothing at all but reverence and awe for the emotion contained in Masayoshi Soken’s piano, Natsuko Ishikawa and Kathryn Cwynar’s lyrics, and Amanda Achen’s vocals. Give it a hear when you get the chance, but make positive you block out your program. You may be crying for a while.
