Speaking of snubs, Hideo Kojima, former employee of Konami, has left the video game company due to political dysfunction. He had been with Konami since 1986, and created one of their most successful franchises, Metal Gear. He’s announced plans to start a company that will work closely with Sony’s Playstation, but things are still vague, as could be expected. Chances are, the executives at Konami are going to be spending a lot of time with their therapists, seeing as one of their major brands has just been decapitated.
“I could not care less about this woman’s boring life,” is what this man is thinking.
And what’s worse is that their therapists will probably think they’re boring because of it. Nobody wants to hear someone complaining about problems they created for themselves, which is why your Indiana mom doesn’t care if your Brooklyn rent is so high, and your best friend doesn’t care if your guitarist girlfriend never comes home before 2 a.m. These things are boring, and complaining about them will make people — yes, even your therapists — think you’re boring. Do whatever you need to do to convince them otherwise, like suggest some lesser-known Christmas album as the soundtrack to their next party. That should definitely do it. Just don’t try to talk to your Rolling Stone-loving dad about anything other than Stevie Nicks.
