Tips for Buying EarthBound

April 20th, 2008 | Audio Stuff, Itoi

This video isn’t really a video, it’s a 1982 Japanese song. The lyrics were written by Shigesato Itoi.

Whenever someone asks what it is he does for a living, where do you start? Writing slogans, writing lyrics to music (including techno enka music), gold mining, writing books/novels, designing video games, running his own Internet company, making music albums of his own, being a TV personality, being president of the Japan Monopoly Association (as in the board game), voicing characters in internationally-famous classic anime, being non-executive director of a pachinko/slot machine corporation, and the list keeps going. And he still does all this at 60. Damn.


POLL: Do you think you'll be as active and productive as Itoi when you're 60?
