theminniemau5-deactivated201211 asked: WHERE IS YOUR SWEET AUTUMN MIX?!
My computer’s being repaired so I don’t have any of my fiiiiiles.
As soon as I get it back I’ll post it. I PROMISE.
Also sorry (to everyone) that I’ve been absent for so long. Been tossing and turning about the insignificance of my existence and its persistent march towards death and decay. It’s kept me busy.
But I’ll be back soon, if you’ll have me.
Anonymous asked: I came across your existence a few weeks ago looking into the faux James Blunt death thing. You are an incredibly talented individual, and a fantastic writer. I’ve read through almost every one of your writing pieces, and I am truly enchanted by your honesty, humor, and viewpoint on the things you talk about. And your original music is delightful also (I’m a fan of your Emma Watson song particularly :D ). I just thought I’d take the time to let you know. And best of luck with your internship :)
I was feeling like crap today and here’s an x-ray of my chest after reading this:
You’ve fucked me up. I’m a fucking monster now.
Anonymous asked: I don't know if you started interning at College Humour yet, but I was just reading this article called 25 Things You Hate Yourself for Saying and I have to ask: are you the guy in the "things just got real" and the "best hummus I've ever had" photos? Why I'm on anon is pretty obvious.
Haha oh man, yeah. That’s me. One of them is me in mid-blink. The editorial department is pretty isolated, so when someone’s doing an article with photos they usually just ask other editorial people to be in it.
sashanako asked: You're amazing. Truly wonderful. And brilliant. Stay gold! (Am I supposed to ask a question? Umm...what do you think about narwhals?)
You’re TOO SWEET thank you. Wait I totally made a comic a few years ago about “Stay Gold.” I’m going to find it and post it.
Also, for the longest time I wasn’t sure if narwhals were real or not, because it seems so improbable that the only creature with a magnificent twisty horn like that would be a whale-thing. I feel like they can’t swim around without inadvertently becoming fish-kabobs. But maybe that’s what it’s for? But then how do they eat it off the horn? Do they share with each other? That’s cute! Aw.
Also today I was making wine-bottle candles to decorate my new (barren) room in Brooklyn and one of them looked like a narwhal, see?
Anyway what were we talking about?
Oh yeah, thanks, you rock.
Anonymous asked: Just found your blog today via a reblog of your Valentine's Day card sets, and I must inform you that you are fantastic in all manners. Art, writing, all of it. You're intelligent, clever, and I see myself spending quite a while perusing your archives (as creepy as that may sound).
the-rooftop asked: hey, how did you land an internship with college humor?!!
I found a golden ticket in a humor bar, I took a tour of the humor factory, I got lost, and now I’m stuck here.
For real, though, I just sent a very desperate cover letter.
Anonymous asked: How did you get an internship at Frederator?
I sent Fred an email and some sample work and then I interviewed!
You gotta be persistent and you can’t be afraid to just email or call places. Bug the shit out of them.
normanbecile asked: Let me just say, you are my idol. What got you into animation/illustration?
Fred Seibert said something like “Cartoons occupy the same psychic space that Rock and Roll used to.”
Also, I used to make little videos but they looked like shit because my equipment was limited. With animation, the only limitation as far as how professional your product looks is your ability to draw. It’s a matter of hard work, rather than expensive tools.
