It was pretty great, and totally packed. Here is a question I asked:
About the show: You’re always emphatic that you’ve always had an end in mind for Metalocalypse; I really admire that you’re sticking through to the vision — has anything changed, though, from your original concept? Either the characterizations, or the humor aesthetic?
- About the music: The samples for Galaktikon are incredible. Do you have any project ideas for the future where we’ll get to hear you sing more?
And his answer:
- you always have to yield to the show- meaning it will naturally take a course that it takes with all the info you give it- the characters have come to life and grown by leaps and bounds from season 1, and you just have to let it happen.
as for the ending- there are a lot of ways to skin that cat. one of which involves skinning an actual cat.
. thanks- again we’ll see if people buy it and that will tell me everything i guess …
Taking for granted my existing feelings about Brendon’s work in advance, I just have so much love for this method of character development. This, combined with the fact that he is resolute about not letting outsiders influence the work, really means that what you’re getting is real, vitalized storytelling, and I think that’s just beyond wonderful.
And also, buy Galaktikon, guys. Even if it’s not Dethklok. The samples are great. It’s undeniable. Brendon, Bryan and Gene are three ridiculously talented artists and masters of spinning multiple high-priority plates on a constant basis. The hard work needs to be rewarded.
And utterly unrelated and in closing, is the best question on today’s entire board:
Q. “Do Brendon, Jason and Melissa ever get a new video camera? This is a real question.”
A. “the question is- do they need the camera anymore?”
