A Station Eight Fan Web Site
Not a question, but:
I was reading Thomas Hardy's "Far From the Madding Crowd" yesterday, and one of the chapters involved an architectural gargoyle, which Hardy called throughout a "gurgoyle". This is the first time I've come across that variant spelling for "gargoyle", but I wanted to share it with you. (I don't know whether the variant was Hardy's invention or not, but it most likely stems from "gurgle", linked to many gargoyles functioning as waterspouts.)
Sounds about right.
Why does water taste like nothing?
I'm not sure that it does. But maybe it's the base that we compare all other tastes to.
Also, I'm not sure you really get the purpose of ASK GREG. I'm not ASK JEEVES.
The Earth revolves at around 1000 MPH
Why isn't it windy all the time?
You'd have to ask someone who knows, but I'd guess it's because our atmosphere is revolving WITH the Earth.
which person you would like to talk too, for one day what would you talk about with that person?
As frequent readers of this site know, I'm not big on hypotheticals or on lists that rank things. It's just not how my brain works. So picking out my number one hypothetical person to talk to, and then figuring out what we'd talk about is (a) not too interesting to me and (b) incredibly difficult for me to get my head around. Sorry.
Random question. If the main cast of Gargoyles was in a horror movie, like let say Friday the 13th, what order you think they die in?
I don't watch horror movies.
I have a question: What does John Lasseter think of Gargoyles?
How would I know? Wouldn't it make more sense to ask him?
Hey Greg, I have a few personal questions for you, unrelated to your shows:
1)Given the link you provided in this blog, you obiously know about TvTropes, but I would like to know what are your favorite Tropes. (for exemple, my favorite tropes are "Physical god", "Eldritch Abomination" and "Sufficiently advanced aliens")
2)Have you watched Maleficent? What to you think about this movie?
3) What's your opnion about furries in general?
Sorry if I am being annoying, but I am just curious.
1. I don't have any. I haven't studied the site. I've just looked at my shows there on occasion for fun.
2. Yes, when it first came out. In general, I liked it. A couple of minor complaints, maybe. But nothing that interfered with my overall enjoyment.
3. To each his or her own.
Given the opportunity, have you considered working on anything with the creators of Avatar: The Last Airbender, Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko?
I think everyone would be very interested in whatever you'd all be able to come up with.
I hardly think they need my help. They do excellent work without me. I'd be happy to work with them, but we've never even met.
Where do babies come from?
I understand this is an unusual question, but I'm wondering if you know how to contact Brynne Chandler. My husband and I saw her in the Phoenix Comicon 2014, but didn't get a chance to say thank you or ask for her signature. Do you know if she does any other events?
Thank you for your time, and for creating this website. This is an extraordinary series.
I know longer have an active email address or other contact info for Brynne. Sorry. Although I've run into her a couple of times, we haven't worked together since 1996.
Would you be terribly offended/against me using your likeness in a joke article? I'm dressing up as Luna Lovegood and I'm handing out fake copy of the Quibbler.
It's 100% free. I won't be selling this for money!
If you're against it lemme know and I will put something else in.
Well... a year has passed. This is probably the type of quick yes or no question that would work on twitter, where my handle is @greg_weisman.
Anyway, the answer is probably, "Sure, go ahead." Though please don't put offensive ideas in my mouth, so to speak.
can i use your work for a school video
I'm not sure what you mean by "use" it, but as long as (a) you're not profiting off it and (b) you don't take credit for something that isn't yours, then I suppose it's probably okay.
Keep in mind that, with the exception of Rain of the Ghosts, any work of mine you've seen is owned by a big corporation, not me. I don't have the right to give you any permissions on material that I don't own.
What makes the flyweel go on a Vauxhall Astra?
What's a Vauxhall Astra? For that matter, what's a flywheel?
can u tell me about the gargoyle fandom and how i can join it i have been a big fan for a long time
Well, there's no sign-up sheet as far as I know. But you can start by posting/introducing yourself here: http://www.s8.org/gargoyles/comment/
Hi, Greg. I have just two little questions for you. I believe that Stanley Kubrick was involved in the Gargoyles production. Frankly, I am sure of that, so my questions (I hope not unanswered) are about your relationship with him. How did he contact you, and what part he had in the production? Thanks in advance.
It's amazing you can be so sure about something that is flat out untrue.
I mean think about this... why would a major motion picture director based in England be involved in a Disney television cartoon that aired in syndication?
I'm guessing you're just pulling my leg.
I was wondering, do you know of a way I could contact Victor Cook? I know you worked with him on Spectacular Spidey, and I wanted to ask him a question concerning his latest work, Scooby-Doo Mystery Incorporated ( which is a show I highly reccomend should you have time). If you can help, I'd appreciate it.
Well, obviously I know how to contact Vic, but I'm not entirely sure how to put you in touch with him. I also don't want to set a precedent and/or start making a habit of becoming a clearing house for fans to go through me to ask questions of other professionals.
So I think your best bet is to contact him via Warner Bros, where he's working on Mystery Inc.
Hiya, Greg! Just watched "Terrors" for about the fifth time, and am officially declaring it my favorite episode so far of the first season. Kudos on the beyond-awesome representations of Hugo Strange, Icicle Sr., and the Wall herself.
In any event, however, I'd like to take a moment to return to some of your previous work...or rather, something that it has spawned. Over the past several months, fans of your series have used "Religious Studies 101" as a jumping-off point to start a role-playing community on the social networking site Formspring, with each player taking on an account(s) on behalf of a character from one universe or the other and answering questions from other users accordingly.
While I would not advise you to actually take a look at the site itself (as while the community has produced some really great and enjoyable work, it's still fanfiction, if in a rather unconventional format), I couldn't resist using this opportunity to find out a nice little nugget of info from each of your characters: what they all think about YOU.
...Yep, as silly as it seems, I've spent about six months asking each and every player their answer to the query, "What is your opinion on Greg Weisman?" and recording their responses in the S8 Comment Room. And now that every single response is in (and I've edited the list to avoid any responses that might hint at an outside idea), I'm presenting them all to you now.
I hope that you find the whole of them amusing; I know I did. :D
THE CAST OF "GARGOYLES"
Elisa Maza: I loved his work on "Captain Atom."
Okay, I admit it, I love comic books.
Hudson: I prefer Celebrity Hockey.
Brooklyn: "Young Justice" kicks ass. I watch it with Gnash, Broadway, Lex, and Angela every week.
Lexington: I don't know how he put up with so many people asking him about my future mate....
Broadway: He writes some of the best shows on TV!
Angela: Oh, he's a magnificent writer! I love how he brings Shakespeare into every one of his shows in many different ways.
Coldstone: Isn't he responsible for that show that Nashville, Brooklyn, Angela, and Lexington always watch?
Coldfire: I watch some of his shows with Nashville, Brooklyn, Lexington, Angela, and Broadway...I enjoy a storyteller who is respectful towards all religious beliefs.
Katana: I do not know him.
Nashville: He's cool.
Bronx: *BARKS HAPPILY!*
Matt Bluestone: Greg Weisman? Nashville was talking about him just the other day; that and some show called "Young Justice." From what I hear, Weisman is one clever individual.
Officer Morgan Morgan: He's that truck driver Mysterio attacked last year and Spider-man pulled him out of the river, right?
I read about him in the paper...*yawns*
Oh boy...I did NOT get enough sleep last night...
David Xanatos: I would love to acquire him for my Pack Media division.
Owen Burnett: A very talented and creative individual. Mr. Xanatos has charged me with acquiring him for our Pack Media division. Unfortunately, he seems quite personally invested in his current project at Warner Bros. Animation.
Fox: He would have been a great addition to Pack Media Studios.
Alexander Fox Xanatos: Apparently pop was trying to hire him away from Warner Bros. Don't blame him for not leaving, Young Justice is pretty kick-ass. Robin's my fav.
Demona: He is a human.
Thailog: I'm thinking of starting my own studio. I might just hire him.
Shari: Greg Weisman is a storyteller...and a good one. I think we're very much alike. I'd love to meet him and trade stories. Maybe I'll get to meet him if my boss is serious about hiring him to develop a new show.
Brentwood: greg wiseman smart
Doctor Anton Sevarius: The man certainly understands DRAMA!
Sir Peredur fab Ragnal: I like him.
Duval: I don't know him. Edmund Tsabard however, is part of our organization.
Quincy Hemings: I recall ol' Edmund saying a few things 'bout him. He didn't like him much...which means this Greg must be a rather decent guy.
Falstaff: He's a truck driver, right?
Points: My name is Points, he killed my father, prepare to die---Just kidding.
Bardolph: *BREATHS FIRE*
Mistress Quickly: Young Justice is entertaining...I like Kid Flash, he amuses me.
Mistress Doll: Ever met Edmund Tsabard? He's far more fun--and interesting--than that stick-in-the-mud Greg Weisman.
Macbeth: A fine bard and storyteller. My old friend, Will, would take to him instantly.
King Arthur Pendragon: I have not met this man, but I have heard nothing but good things.
Sir Griff: I'm having an existential crisis here.
Merlin: Oh yes...I do believe in God. What was your question again?
Lady Blanchefleur: I've heard all about this 'Edmund Tsabard' character he seems to dislike so much.
John Castaway: I believe that I share a name with his younger brother.
Coldsteel: Why should I care?
Coyote 6.0: I do not know him.
Wolf: Hack writer.
Jackal: His shows are so pretentious.
Hyena: That guy thought he was too good to write for our show. What's wrong with simple plots that are all about punching and kicking things? But no...Mr. Stuck Up there has to have "plot twists" and "character development" and all that other high and mighty crap.
Well, Michael Bay is the king of the box office, and no one gives a crap about...err...anyone who ever wins one of those lame awards. So, shows like ours for the win! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
The Tasmanian Tiger: I hear he sounds just like Osborn's lackey Donald Menken. That could come in handy at some point...
The Director: I am unfamiliar with him. Edmund Tsabard on the other hand is one of our high-priority targets.
Robyn Canmore: His sister has the same name I do.
Dingo: I love that guy!
Matrix: A database search indicates that he is an American Animation Writer. Is often confused for Edmund Tsabard who is wanted by Interpol, and as such Greg Weisman is often detained by airport security.
Yama: He's been to Ishimura once.
Fang: Never met him, but that Edmund Tsabard is a good pal O' mine.
Gunther Sturluson: I don't know any wise man, but a man named Edmund Tsabard passed through here a few years ago. He tried to lock Papa and me in the cave too.
Rory Dugan: Big fan, just wish more of his shows got released on DVD in region 2.
Natsilane: Didn't he live on a street named after our island?
Fara Maku: *Briefly changes back*
I admire my fellow storytellers...
*Transforms back into Panther-Form.*
Travis Marshall: I don't really watch television except for the news.
Doctor Jay Sato: I enjoyed his work on the dub of 3x3 Eyes. I think he's quite talented.
Terry Chung: I love "Young Justice". I hope we get to see more of Hawkgirl; I've always been fond of Hawkgirl.
Amanda Chung: Terry liked...likes Young Justice.
Officer Tri Chung: Used to have a roommate by that name.
Street Thugs: If he comes through our territory, he's going to have to pay the piper.
Talon: He's working with Sevarius!! ARE YOU HELPING HIM?
Delilah: Is this someone I should know about?
Thug: I like him. He's a good guy, and loves his kids.
Erin: I feel like I know him from somewhere... Didn't we meet him at a truck stop one time, Benny?
Benny: Yeah, Erin...I think we did...
Or maybe we just remember his name from the Young Justice credits..
Zafiro: I do not know this Amigo.
Obsidiana: I refer you to my mate's answer.
Kai: I do not know him, but a dishonorable man by the name of Edmund Tsabard passed through Ishimura a few years back, asking about Paris...
Sora: I do not know him either, but as Kai said, Edmund Tsabard passed through Ishimura some time ago...the beast actually had the nerve to ask me to model for him. Yama decided to introduce the pig to his katana.
The man lives...but is forbidden to enter Ishimura again on pain of death.
Una: He is a human. Hopefully NOT a Quarryman.
Leo: Don't care right now...
Constance: Isn't he a writer?
Staghart: He's the bloody Joss Whedon of Animation, what more needs to be said?
Lunette: Got hooked on Young Justice once it got here.
Old Pog: I have no idea who that is, you young whipper-snapper.
Princess Katharine: I dinnae know him. Should I?
Tom: I dinnae know this man...
Gabriel: I have never left this island, so I do not know this "Wise man."
Ophelia: I don't know, who is he?
Boudicca: *Cocks head quizzically, as if to ask..."Who's that?"*
Lord Oberon: A mortal man. Nothing more. Although I did meet him during the 1,001 years. I had a weakness for comics in the 80s and watched him put his own "Thumbprint" on Watchmen.
Not that he knew who I was.
Lady Titania: He is interesting, as far as humans go.
The Puck: Ah, now there's a storyteller who's been accurate about more things than that Shakespeare fellow ever was.
The Weird Sisters: We will consult the Scrying Cauldron...Double, Double, Toil and Trouble, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble!
Ah yes, he is a human bard with great potential.
Anubis: He will die.
Odin: A gifted storyteller, but a mortal one...so like most, inconsequential in the grand scheme of things.
Coyote the Trickster: An excellent Trickster in his own right...
Raven: I know the street he grew up on quite well. An amusing trickster, for a mortal.
Anansi: I love a good storyteller...
The Banshee: I care not about these mortals!
Lady of the Lake: A mortal bard, much in the vein of Malory or Shakespeare.
I liked W.I.T.C.H.
Boreas: I have not met any humans other then Elisa Maza and Terry Chung. I'm afraid I do not know enough of this individual to form an opinion.
Taurus: A human writer who is fond of the bastard murderer Theseus. I do not care for him.
Talos: Records indicate that he is a human writer of some note.
Sphinx: That sounds like a human name. Is that a human name?
Kiron: Who is that?
Helios: Taurus isn't too fond of him.
Ekidna: He is a threat to New Olympus, like all humans.
Proteus: I like all humans...they interest me...
The Stone of Destiny: His Destiny is an interesting one...
The Holy Grail: He is worthy to seek the Grail, should he accept the Quest.
The Phoenix: Tssseeeeeeeeeerrrr!!!!!
THE CAST OF "THE SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN" (AND THE WIDER MARVEL UNIVERSE)
Spider-Man: Didn't he write that song "The Will To Love?" I love that song. Oh, and "Young Justice" kicks ass too.
Peter Parker: "W.I.T.C.H." was pretty awesome and "Young Justice" kicks ass!
Gwen Stacy: I loved "W.I.T.C.H." I even dressed up as Nerissa for Halloween about two years ago.
Harry Osborn: My dad says real men don't watch cartoons.
Mary Jane Watson: I would voice act in one of his animated series any time. I'm actually just a tad jealous of the talented lady voicing Black Canary in "Young Justice."
Flash Thompson: Hmmm... *remembers watching the second season of W.I.T.C.H.* Um, never heard of him.
Sha Shan Nguyen: "W.I.T.C.H." was a lot of fun, and Flash and I have been waiting for new episodes of "Young Justice" for a while now.
Sally Avril: Never heard of him! Is this some kinda geek thing?
Rand Robertson: S'cool. I like his shows. Sally didn't like watching cartoons, so I have some catching up to do on Young Justice, I only caught the pilot cuz' she was out of town that weekend.
J. Jonah Jameson: I HATE TELEVISION! HOW DARE THAT MAN ROT THE MINDS OF OUR NATION'S YOUTH WITH THAT MINDLESS ANIMATED DRIVEL ON TELEVISION!
OUR CHILDREN SHOULD NOT BE WATCHING THE ADVENTURES OF MASKED VIGILANTES! HE'S GLORIFYING THAT BEHAVIOR AND THE LAST THING WE NEED ARE OUR KIDS IMITATING SPIDER-MAN!
Betty Brant: I don't know about Weisman, but Edmund Tsabard came through New York last month and rocked my world.
Ned Lee: I interviewed him about Young Justice once. He kinda reminds me of one of Betty's friends.
May Parker: Oh, he's that nice man that I met at the play the other evening...
Captain George Stacy: I remember sitting down with Gwen to watch the latest episode of W.I.T.C.H. when she was younger. Things seemed a lot simpler back then.
Doctor Ashley Kafka: His characters are always so fascinatingly complex.
The Green Goblin: He writes the best villains in all of animation. HAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!
Norman Osborn: I don't think I've ever heard of him.
Emily Osborn: I do not watch cartoons.
Doctor Octopus: An incompetent hack. Now Edmund Tsabard, there's a real writer!
The Vulture: Didn't he tell me that I'm old once?
Electro: "Young Justice" rocks, just wish Red Arrow appeared more. He's cool!
Sandman: Who's that?
The Rhino: Who cares? I just wanna crush that stupid Web-head!
Kraven the Hunter: He would not survive the Hunt...
Mysterio: He creates awesome animated experiences and doesn't afraid of anything.
The Terrible Tinkerer: Met him once, he tried to buy the license to my Homunculi so he could make a cartoon about them.
The Homunculi: MAMA! MAMA!
Venom: We loved the second season of W.I.T.C.H.
Yeah, we like W.I.T.C.H.! Anybody want to make something of it?
Tombstone: I do not concern myself with second-rate writers.
Hammerhead: Never heard o' him.
Shocker: He works for Osborn, doesn't he?
Silver Sable: I had to spend twelve years of my life managing what remained of my father's business... I did not have time to watch cartoons. And with daddy back in jail, I still don't.
Chameleon (in the guise of Norman Osborn): I've already answered this question, so stop wasting my time. I've got a company to run.
Black Cat: I don't know him, but I have modeled for Edmund Tsabard.
Roderick Kingsley: I have no opinion on Weisman. Edmund Tsabard, on the other hand, designed a cologne for us that he promised would be a true aphrodisiac. He was right, but it was so effective that the F.D.A. refused to approve of it.
Tsabard was fired, and the cologne is only available in Thailand now.
The Hobgoblin: What kind of man is too shallow to admit to enjoying a well produced cartoon every now and then? I rather enjoy the subplot in "Young Justice" with the Light. Mysterious individuals hiding their identities and working towards their goals is a concept I find appealing.
Colonel Nick Fury: Never met him, but S.H.I.E.L.D. has been trying to take down Edmund Tsabard for years.
Jessica Drew: Captain Atom was a great comic.
Thor: He would be a worthy addition to the Warriors Three. They would have to change their team name, though. I'm working on a concept I like to call the "Warriors Four".
Loki: I would have loved to see his take on me.
Doctor Doom: He helped create "Max Steel," so Doom will...admit that he is a "cool guy."
General Thunderbolt Ross: He's a fine writer but personally, I prefer that Peter David fella.
Deadpool: Greg Weisman? Didn't I run trucks with him? No, that guy called himself Edmund...or Eddie...or Ed. No, he is vengeance, he is the night, he is GREG WEISMAN! No, he was sent to Earth from his dying world, and under the yellow Sun he has powers beyond any mortal man. No, wait, does he have radioactive blood? Can he swing from a web? He does whatever a spider can. He's Greg Weisman! No, that's not right. Oh wait! He did that show about those guys with wings that saved people! I liked that show...why did they ever cancel it?
RANDOM OTHER PEOPLE WHO DECIDED TO RESPOND TO ME
Montmarte: I have never heard of this Monsieur Weisman.
Montparnasse: Hmmm...I am not certain...the name seems familiar...
Would you pass me that Case of Self-Indulgence please? I think that it would go perfectly in this soup...
Angelique: I do not know many humans...and the last one I met...a man named Edmund Tsabard...made me very uncomfortable...
Left Bank: *HAPPY BARK*!!!
Diabolique: He is a human.
Thomeheb: I prefer Edmund Tsabard...He just has that...Down home touch that reminds me of Gay Paree!
Count Dracula (from Stoker's "Dracula"): Another mortal author who seeks to disseminate my secrets to the masses.
Maleficent (from "Sleeping Beauty"): I like Walt Disney better.
Dr. Facilier (from "The Princess and the Frog"): Man keeps gettin' the shaft.
Don Karnage (from "Tale Spin"): His cartoons are most amusing to me.
Sarah Williams (from "Labyrinth"): I like some of his stuff, moreso when I was younger. I'm more of a Henson girl though.
Jareth the Goblin King (from "Labyrinth"): A decent storyteller, not quite on par with the mortal Jim Henson.
Buffy Summers (from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"): I did use to watch W.I.T.C.H. with Dawn.
The Doctor (from "Doctor Who"): Never met him personally, but heard good things. If you think what he's done is impressive, you wait until you see what he's going to do.
Kim Possible (from...well, "Kim Possible"): I loved watching W.I.T.C.H.
Avatar Aang (from "Avatar: The Last Airbender"): I've heard good things about him.
Gwen Tennyson (from "Ben 10"): I liked W.I.T.C.H., especially Will.
Aquaman (from "Batman: Brave and the Bold"): Certain projects shall be seen through or the Brothers Warner and I shall have "words".
Death (from Neil Gaiman's "Sandman"): I loved W.I.T.C.H. Too bad it seems that all the shows he does get cancelled too soon. Gives me a bad feeling about Young Justice; I like Miss Martian on that show.
The Spectacular Spider-Pony (SpecSpidey's Peter Parker crossed with a pony from "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic"): My cutie mark is him and Lauren Faust bro-fisting.
Uh, wow. Some of these go over my head, but...
Would you be offended if I gave a tattoo of Goliath to a client of mine as long as I post the tat when its done
Go for it!
Hey greg I would like to ask your opinion on this articles I wrote (regarding story telling) and if possible some feedback thanks!
1.-http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/SoYouWantTo/DevelopCharacterPersonality That one is an analysis about developing a character pesonality. For a story teller of your caliber it won't be anything new of course.
2.-http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Analysis/Escapism This one tries to explain the concept of Escapism. I am sure that's something you master a lot.
Thanks for your time
I'm sorry, but I just don't have the time these days to read and give feedback.
Can you define your idea of true sentience?
Probably not. But I'd start with Descarte...
If you can say "I think therefore I am" and grapple with its meaning, as opposed to its mere pronunciation...
Well, that's a starting point.
I wont say it isnt painful to read people that still thinks positivly about Descarte and his ideas toward other forms of life. Animals may not think the way we humans do, but they still do. Descarte also said that animals seemed to suffer pain, but they didnt. You agree on that too?
Im sorry, but it was painfull to read this considering what gargoyles represented for me when I was growing up.
Okay, stand down on the pain.
You're taking an off-hand comment too seriously. I NEVER said I thought animals don't suffer pain. That's patently ridiculous. I wasn't endorsing even a fraction of Descartes philosophy, just GIVING AN EXAMPLE.
But thanks for interpreting it in the worst possible way.

I know I'm probably forgetting some folks, and I REALLY apologize! If you send me a reminder, I'll pimp you in another post!
I am doing a research regarding fantasy an escapism.I wrote an article here pointing why We enjoy fantasy so much.Wich it can bee seen here http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Analysis/Escapism.
And I was wondering if you could give me your opinion on it.Given that fantasy-escapism is something you do great. Thanks!
I'll try to get to that soon...
What do I respond to this, in a smartass funny way, that makes me look cute?: "I think you may have gotten the names mixed up. See that's ... I'm ... Clearly I am the stunner. Its ok. I know you just got a little confused. "
Hey! As a fan of Gargoyles and of the Nostalgia Crigic, I was just wondering if you ever got around to seeing the review that the Nostalgia Critic (Doug Walker) did of Gargoyles? While usually he bashes everything about every show and movie he reviews, (even the ones he likes) he surprisingly gave a pretty generous review to Gargoyles. Actually, that's the reason why I started watching the show.
I have seen at least some of them. And I do always appreciate nice notices.
As the conspiracy buff that I am, I found a few references to the Erisian's Law of Fives on Gargoyles (most of which from "Revelations") that I would like you to bear in mind:
a) Mace Malone's key number was 23 (2+3=5).
b) Matt's key number was 13 (23-5-5=13; or 5+5+13=23)
c) Elisa and Matt work on the 23rd precinct;
d) and the most creepy of them all: this episode is the 36th to be produced, which means that by subtracting the 13 episodes of season one, it becomes the 23rd produced episode of season two!
I was wondering if these references were intentional or are just coincidental.
Feels a little like answering could unleash a curse or something.
What happened to Disney gargoyle Avalon archives? Did the owner shut the site down, and where can I download more pictures?
I don't know. Is it gone?
Not a question, but I left out a word in my conclusion. Its meant to say this: "Thanks and I hope you'll work with those two guys again".
Uh... which two guys were we talking about?
You've made it clear that you won't be giving heights for most of the characters, but you did mention in a January '08 response that you thought of Xanatos as being about six feet tall. I am a fan of numbers. Would you object to fans (me in particular) calculating heights rather than leaving them vague?
Knock yourself out.
Who would you rather be trapped in an eight hour car ride with; Demona; Nerissa; or Green Goblin?
Nerissa, I guess. She'd have less reason to kill me at random. She might even appreciate the company.
what is 7/100
A math question.
I thought you might like to know that somebody did a humorous comic strip adaptation of Malory's "Le Morte d'Arthur" for his webcomic "Litbrick", which, in the final instalment (Bedivere returning Excalibur to the lake) mentioned that Arthur was borne away to Avalon, where he slept until being awakened in an episode of "Gargoyles". Here's the link to it:
I thought you'd be pleased to see the series still being remembered after all this time.
It's a nice shout out.
should i get married?
Unsurprisingly, I have no idea.
(I thought about doing a Magic Eightball style smartass response, but was terrified it might be taken seriously.)
I'm a big fan. I work in South Korea teaching English and I thought you would be interested in your creations' progress over here.
I did some research on the internet and Gargoyles: The Movie and some season 1 episodes were released on VHS over here. What a collector's item those would be? The official translated name of the show is "Champion Goliath", but happily enough online Korean fans just call it "Gargoyles."
Channel surfing, I did see The Spectacular Spider-Man on the cartoon channel, 5:30, Saturday morning. That's actually a good time, since Korean children have Saturday school and 5:30am would be just the right time they're waking up.
Keep up the good work and hopefully I'll see Young Justice in Korea.
Very cool! Thanks, Richard.
One more thing: I don't know if you've seen this yet but here's a video review of Gargoyles. It's actually pretty funny and I thought you might get a kick out of it:
I've seen it. Thanks.
I dont know if you seen this yet, you'll want to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aeMnUuoeCwI
Sorry. It was blocked when I tried to watch it.
Hi Greg! I have a question about the Manhattan Clan. I know this took place in Colorado but... what would the Clan's reaction be to the Columbine High School shootings in 1999? I imagine Broadway or Hudson would have read about it in the New York Times. Thanks for your time.
They'd find it upsetting.
Being the huge fan I am of you, I'm always curious about your work beyond Gargoyles (even if coming across the work can sometimes be difficult for me for whatever reason). I think one thing that's always fascinated me is Rain of the Ghosts. I understand that it was done as a Radio Play during one of the Gatherings, but seeing as the Gathering is now over (until someone new steps up to organize it or a new con), would you be willing to disclose information about it or post the script itself?
No. I'm still trying to sell it in one form or another.
I desperately need some gargoyle jokes for halloween
Not off the top of my head, no.
I was rereading "Quidditch Through the Ages" (a small book put out by J. K. Rowling a few years ago as part of a support to a British charity group) last night, and came upon a passage that mentioned a Quidditch match between the Toyohashi Tengu (a Quidditch team from Japan) and the Gorodok Gargoyles (a Quidditch team from Lithuania) in 1994. Now, this is probably just a coincidence (I don't know if Rowling's even ever been that aware of "Gargoyles"), but I thought that you might be amused at the notion of two teams with those names having a match in the very year that "Gargoyles" premiered.
That is very cool. Thanks.
how to go on the show ruff ruffs man and be a contastent
And gobbledee-gook to you too!
First off, just wanted to say that I love Gargoyles; great show, very inspirational in my own work. That being said, here's my question:
If you recall, Doug Walker of Nostalgia Critic fame added lyrics to the Gargoyles theme a while back. This time, he has released a full fledged review of the series as the Nostalgia Critic (Which, unsurprisingly, is a very positive review).-http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/nostalgia-critic/8726-gargoyles
My question is, does Walker express the kind of things in his review that you had hoped would result from Gargoyles (ie, is his review the kind of review you would have been hoping to hear when Gargoyles first came out)?
We had many good reviews when Gargoyles first came out. I liked NC's review too.
(I can't believe I'm actually being asked to review the reviews! ;P )
What did you think of the Nostalgia Critic's review of Gargoyles?
What was your favorite part? Any parts you didnt like?
If you havent seen it, here is the link.
It's been so long since I watched it, I don't remember too many details. But I liked it. He liked us. We liked him. It was a whole mutual like-fest.
what does roman numeral lxm stand for
It seems an incorrect form to me. L being fifty, I believe, and X being ten, and M being a thousand. It would seem to indicate 1000 - 60 = 940. But no self-respecting Roman would write it that way. I'd think 940 would be written CMXL. But I'm hardly an expert.
i have loved gargoyles for a long time. I have seen all the episodes and has inspired me to write a book. But with my own twist and characters. Do u think useing the same location as the tv series is copying your work?
Uh... well, not that I want more specifics, but it really depends on how many specific touchstone points you're using. I hardly have a monopoly on either Gargoyles or Manhattan, but if you're doing "Gargoyles in Manhattan", you're already treading pretty darn close. You put them atop a skyscraper, you're in very dicey terrain. Frankly, if you have to ask, I'd guess that, yes, you're too close to copying us.
In any case, I can't get very enthusiastic for you no matter what you're doing. I'm glad we've inspired you, but I'd rather we inspired you to something way more your own than something that is close enough that you are merely bringing your "own twist and characters" to the project.
If this is merely intended as fanfiction, fine. But if you have some desire to release this commercially, than I'd rather you didn't compete with me on my turf, using work inspired by my show. Does that sound selfish?
You know the funny thing is? I played Star Fox 64 on my Nintendo Wii and I had noticed that there are two characters and two planets are named after th animals and history stuff. Fox McCloud and Wolf O'Donnell (Fox Xanatos and Wolf of the Pack) while Titania and MacBeth are the planets (Queen Titania and MacBeth Xanatos hired). Pretty funny huh? Next thing you know, Star Fox might have another character and/or planet named after the Gargoyles character's name.
What would you say is your favorite mythological creature/character (not including any from the Shakespeare mythos)?
Hey Greg, may i ask you something? What would you do If Disney decided to put Gargoyles In Their Kingdom Hearts Series, or they and Allan Moore decide to Put Gargoyles in The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen? If you know what those series are? Would you want to have anything to do with it? I know they won't be considered canon, but would you want to work on it, after all they're your characters and you're with them to the end, would you want to help with those series, like you'll guide the others on what Goliath would do or what he wouldn't do, or you know just try to put them in the Universes of those two series? What would you Do?
Well... I'd be all for Gargoyles going into Kingdom Hearts, and I'd be happy to work with those folks. Unfortunately, no one has asked.
As for, LOEG, that's seems an even more unlikely hypothetical. But what the hell? If Alan and Disney somehow made a deal ... and if Alan wanted my help... well, both scenarios are just nonsensical, but, yes, I suppose I'd be game to play along.
Have you ever considered writing for video games? You're really good at creating unique worlds within the shows you've worked on... everything and everyone seems connected and intertwined in the new spiderman and gargoyles series. I think you could write a killer game franchise.
PS maybe pitch a gargoyles game or spectacular spiderman game... ;)
I'd love to, but nobody has hired me to write one.
I would like to thank Greg Weisman for being here today and to share with us. Many of us know Greg's work as a writer in the comic medium and his endeavours into animation. I myself am particularliy fond of his forays into the world of self expression through the form of facial hair combined with hawaiin shirts. And now the questionnaire used by Bernard Pivot:
What is your favorite word?
What is your least favorite word?
What turns you on creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
What turns you off creatively, spiritually or emotionally?
What sound or noise do you love?
What sound or noise do you hate?
What is your favorite curse word?
What profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
What profession would you not like to do?
If Heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?
Sorry James and/or Bernard... but I can't even summon up the energy to make smartass responses to these questions. They just don't interest me.
when will i get pregnat?
Did you mean pregnant with two Ns?
