Fang> Hey, yoy Goliath! How many Gargoyles does it take to screw in a lightbulb huh?
<Goliath stares at Fang>
Fang> I duno either, but it must take a lot since neither Talon or his dumb replicas of you have even BOTHERED to change the lightbulb for my cell. Oh, wait, that's because you all despise everything about me <starts over dramatic sobbing> Nobody likes me, boo hoo hoo.
<Goliath turns away in disgust>
Fang> <stops sobbing> What's wrong Mr G, cat got your tongue? Hey, come back here, or I WILL get your tongue! Aw, you're no fun anymore.
Results soon, hopefully.
Fang: "Hey, Goliath, how many gargoyles does it take to screw in a lightbulb...?"
Goliath: Lets see...*starts counting on his fingers* one for holding the...
Fang: Goliath...this is a joke..
Goliath: *lookes confused*
Fang: You know a joke...hahah very funny
Goliath: Ah...I see...hahaha...is that right now?
Fang: *rolles eyes* Never mind...gosh...nobody ever gets jokes anymore.
You are entered.
I know I'm breaking the "Ask Greg" Rules here, but I figured this was the only way to get in touch with you. I Just wanted to say thank you for making me feel welcome at the gathering 2001. I've wanted to sit down and type this to you for a long time, but time is something I no longer am able use for such simple things. The whole time I was in L.A. I was nervous enough to be so far from home, but no one there seemed to notice me. The Mini-clanners tried there best to make me feel part of something, but It became clearly evident that I didn't fit in there clan eather. People I knew Online wouldn't say hi to me, the one person I thought was my true friend Denis Duplaen was off in his own world with a girl he met, and Demona May drove me freekin' nutz! I truely know how Brooklyn felt when the clan became caught up in there personal affairs and he had no one to talk to. I left L.A. being more depressed then I've ever been in my life, wishing the plane would crash or something.... But I wouldn't have changed a thing if I could, cause I now realize the valuable lesson this all taught me. That no matter how much you think you are apart of something, and feel like you belong, It doesn't mean that People care about you and how you feel. I don't blame anyone but myself for feeling this way, but I also learned that not everybody... er.. better make that hardly anybody likes heavy metal, and just cause you devote time and effort to something, it doesn't mean anyone will care. Now I know that I need to just worry more about what I need to do, rather then what others think of me. I hope to thank Jeff Bennet too. That guy was awesome and we got to talk a bit at Mug-A-Guest. I also wanted to appoligize for not seeming like the biggest gargoyles fan eather. I love the show with all my heart, but I've never had the time to watch every epsiode over and over till I've memorised every event and name and stuff. I've been working hard since I was 14 and now I'm paying bills for my parents. Its not easy to balace 2.5 jobs and school. I envy the people that have the time to watch T.V. everyday.
Well, I'm sorry I rambled on like this, I know you are a much busyer man than I. Thank you for you time and happy late Birthday to you!
I'm sorry your experience at G2001 was a let-down. I feel that I contributed to that, and I do apologize. I still think about it.
But I am curious. Did you have fun at G2000? I mean it couldn't have been too bad, since you came back for more, right?
Anyway, sometimes we build our expectations too high. I'm not sure even the letdown you describe merits some of the more dire conclusions (or 'lessons') that you have chosen to draw from it.
I hope you give the Gathering another chance some day (like this month). But if not, good luck.
Happy birthday greg, i know you won't read this for months, so happy hanukah to while i'm at it:D
Nearly Happy 4th of July, huh?
Hey Greg Weisman --
I know this may be late, but I've busy with work at the Video Connection, so --
Happy Birthday! YOU RULE!!!
Happy birthday to the one and only, Greg Weisman, Creator of WORLDS!!! Or, since you wont read this for a few months, Merry Christmas to THE Greg Weisman, Puppet Master of GARGOYLES!!! Or perhaps just a happy UN-birthday for you, whenever this is.
I take it that it is no coincidence that the day Charles Canmore was killed by Demona happened to be on the day you turned 18 (if my math serves me (it usually doesn't)). Is there any cool story as to how that came to be? And I seem to remember there being some other dates in Gargoyles that are one with your special day, but I could be wrong since I can't think of them. Are there by any chance?
Anyway, have a nice day and good luck with your 38th year, unless it's 39 by now... Cheers.
Actually, in 1980 I was turning 17, not 18.
And there's no cool story for this one. I just used my birthday because it seemed like the right time of year and I felt like it.
I've used my birthday (9/28) a few times:
994: Tom, Mary and the refugees enter Wyvern Castle. [This one has less to do with my birthday, then with the fact that I decided that the date of the flashback in AWAKENING ONE should coincide with the Gargoyles World Premiere in Florida, which was on 29 September 1994. Working backwards, it's obvious that the refugees got to Wyvern on the 28th.
995: Tom, Mary, Finella, Magus, Katharine and the eggs escape Edinburgh Castle. [Again, this is just a coincidence. They escaped on Michaelmas Eve. Michaelmas is 9/29.]
1963: Vinnie is born. [I gave him my birthdate since he was my stand-in in THE JOURNEY.]
1980: Charles Canmore dies. [See above.]
1995: Demona summons Puck in THE MIRROR. That same night Fox contacts Vogel, inducing him to betray Renard. [The events of the Mirror just broke down in the chronology so that they wound up happening on the 28th. On the other hand, OUTFOXED originally aired on my birthday in 1995, so I tried to have something from "OUTFOXED happen on that day -- though the main events of the episode could not have taken place until later.
1996: Xanatos captures Coldstone in the Himalayas. [This event had to have happened around this time, but I chose my birthday, cuz I felt like it.]
That's it for now.
I couldn't get online yesterday to wish you a happy birthday, Sorry!
Today at band practice, for the first time it occured to me that Gaygolyes have somewhat limited hand use, having only 4 fingers. For example, you could never get one to properly play a flute, clarinet, and even trumpets (they probably wouldn't anyway, but still), since they require 5 fingers per hand. They can't flip people off either! (that is, if they really wanted to). Oh well, just a stupid comment. But while my mind is on the topic, why did you decide for them to have only 4 fingers anyway?
Frankly, it tends to look better in animation. It also set them apart more.
What is the next contest going to be?
Why did you dislike the clans contest?
Geez, dude, I haven't even submitted results from the last contest yet.
I didn't dislike the clan contest really. It just went on forever.
Of course so did the Lightbulb contest, but that's because I've fallen so far behind.
What inspired you to create the Space-Spawn?
(since I just posted, thought I'd take a crack):
Fang: "By the way, how many gargoyles does it take to screw in a lightbulb?"
Broadway: <momentarily caught off guard by the non sequitur, starts to count to himself on his fingers> "Uhhh... one... two..."
Fang: <shaking his head and covering his eyes in mock disgust> "Oy! The world may never know."
[Thought this was a natural tie in to recent discussions about the tootsie pop commercial-- which I remember clearly from when I was a child, thank you very much-- and a rather sad attempt to combine the punchline with a pop-culture reference, but what the hey :p]
