WHEN YOU SWIM
YOU DON'T GRAB HOLD 
OF THE WATER,
BECAUSE IF YOU DO
YOU WILL SINK AND DROWN.
INSTEAD YOU RELAX,
AND FLOAT.

Definitely more focused vision of this episode everyone stayed on topic really well! Excited for the next episode!
Did Tom ever get around to putting a package in the mail for you Kolumbo?
Cough at the end had me giggling a good amount too. :)

Kolumbo responds:

Never! He even ignores me when I post about it in the forums. I'll have to pay him a visit.

Huh, another short one. It was pretty fun though. I've really started appreciating Sro's music. I'm in the process of catching up with you guys, so these episodes are easy :D
The animation was pretty nice from everyone. That intro was interesting, I'm not sure you guys have ever done 3D bits. Creative use of clipping.
The next bit, "Chill", had some great tunes and the ending was satisfying. The style switch was also awesome. If CapaciousSpace is your newest member, I wholeheartedly welcome him.
I've already seen Kolumbo's bit. It's nice. I never realized before how much Sro's music can remind me of u m a m i 's. It still has a unique touch though, and I meant that as a compliment.
The robber bit was funny, though maybe the voice of said robber could have been louder while the guy was crying, it was pretty hard to understand. Otherwise, pretty nice voice acting and jokes.
Overall short and sweet. I agree with @Jacob, it does make you want to relax. You're doing community service, guys.

Easily the most cohesive work I've seen from FDS! "Relax" is a much easier concept to reel in via vignettes, I think. Interesting that the piece itself is still a bit unhinging, though, making me want to relax rather than relaxing me on its own.

I'll be keeping up with you guys. Stay weird, dudes.

GoodL responds:

Took me a while to get around to responding to this, just wanna say thank you so much! I'm truly glad you enjoyed it, and if you're keepin your eye out then I hope we'll get the chance to really wow ya in 2019. Season 2!

the philosophy here is hilarious and it feels beautiful as it is

Love it !
