My favorite moment in Sandman, from the finale by Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess.
The first time you read Sandman, you realize early on that while Morpheus is ostensibly the lead character, he’s seldom the most interesting. You don’t dislike him, but he doesn’t stand out. Several of the best stories barely even involve him.
Then you get to the ending, and you see how the entirety of Sandman ties together into one big thing— a story about stories. You understand Morpheus’s role. You get what’s really going on. You catch how borderline meta the whole thing has been, with Morpheus representing Neil Gaiman more than might have been obvious. You figure out how central of a character Morpheus was, even when he was nowhere to be seen.
“I am prince of stories… but I have no story of my own. Nor shall I ever.”
And then, when you go back and read Sandman again with this in mind, it’s different. Better. Sadder, but happier. And that’s when Morpheus becomes your favorite character.

A request gone wrong and several other doodles for my bros at /bsg/. I never expected to get stuck there but /bsg/ guys (and Lizzie) are just too cool. Hi, /bsg/!
Meanwhile my beloved laptop is finally in long-needed repair so no drawing silly shit for a couple of weeks. Oh the horror.

It’s been almost a year since I released my Gravity Falls rap song. Some backstory, I actually wrote the song while at Connecticon 2012. I basically got the idea, emailed Vince and strongarmed him into making me a quick scratch beat, and then recorded a scratch version of the song in my hotel room during the con with my iphone headphones. I got home, recorded it for real, and it’s now one of the most listened-to things I’ve ever released.
I wrote that song probably when the show was at about 4 episodes? Since then, a whole slew of new episodes have come out, and Gravity Falls continues to be incredible. Since then, I’ve gotten to talk with the whole Internet fan community of the show, including contributing my own bit of geeky fandom in the form of this podcast, which has since turned into some kind of weird animation/nostalgia show. I also was in LA, and got to visit the studio where they make the show. I’m as huge a fan of Gravity Falls as could be, and my only complaint is that I wish it was on more often.
I wrote some new lyrics a while ago (around the episode “Fight Fighters”) and recorded them, while Vince had a chance to improve his scratch beat. So take this song, and let’s celebrate this great show and just party and have a good time.
