Hey, it's that guy! Remember that guy? From-- wait, nah, I wanna see if you can find him. Keep you on your toes, see if you're paying attention.

Anyway, I'm sure this isn't any kind of actual commentary on the current situation. Dude's just plying his craft.

Hey, sometimes we need to take a break from inching the plot forward.

One catchy tune if you ask me. I wonder how long it took you to re cap the story thus far in a song...

And this iswhy you will likely remain one of my favorite artists. ^..^

Catchy Song! Reminds me of that the string-strutting narrator from the Deponia Series.

I think you could sing this to the tune of "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" ...or at least I did.

Oh, WOW, that totally works! Now I can't read it without hearing it sung to that tune! LOL. I am also imagining this guy singing it in a scratchy but low froggish croon like an "oh god, WHY did i stay for karaoke night" cringer, but totally acing it with beautiful guitar-fingering skills.

Though, from the look of it, i probably should have said "banjo-plucking." But maybe it's more like a mandolin. A banjolin?

Sooo... what's a goblin troubadour from the Omphalos doing in Miscellaneous?

Can any being from there get to our "here"?

I'm so happy that this actually has rhythm and rhyme. I feel like so much modern poetry likes to forego a more structured form and I find myself trying to mentally find a beat where there is none. It just ~feels~ good to mentally read a rhyming poem out loud.

Amethystine

Haha! Splendid.

This reminds me of The Times They Are A-Changin'. So, of course, I began to imagine him singing in Dylan's voice. Normally, I hear all the goblins with various semi-comedic British accents, thanks to how you wrote them.. or at least, how that one clothing store proprietor spoke.

How long did it take for you to think that up, or did you rip it from something else? Nice and lyrical, I like it :D

Oh, it took some days... maybe half a week or so. Glad you like it!

Not just the words, but the ... everything. Even the balloon design.

Thanks, I was a little worried about capturing the "goblin" look with Photoshop balloons, but I think I managed to figure out a good method for recapturing the "scribbly" borders.
