John Mayer has a lyric that goes “I wish there was an over-the-counter drug for my loneliness. FOR MY LONELINESS!” I can’t stop thinking about him saying that in earnest to a therapist who is just trying to keep it together. I’m going to challenge myself to slip it into a conversation. I want to do a joyful painting of how that lyric makes me feel. I want John to sell the rights to that song to an anti-depressant medication so the commercial starts and that lyric plays and then the guy from the All State commercials says “Now there is, John. It’s called ‘Artaxal,’ and I think you’ll find it’s what’s been missing.” I want to hear Tracey Morgan read that lyric as Tracey Jordan. I want John to get married and in his vows say “I thought I wanted an over-the-counter drug for my loneliness, for my loneliness, but really all I needed was you, by my side, Lana del Ray or whatever.” This lyric is the best thing to happen to me in such a long time.
This is sort of thing why DOB has always been my favorite.
It’s Official: Gobber is Gay
Fox 411 reports:
“It wasn’t that deliberate. It was an ad-lib that Craig Ferguson added,” [writer/director Dean] DeBlois told FOX411. (The talk show host is the voice of Gobber in the film). “I’d written the line ‘This is why I never married.’ And then he had tagged that on to it.”
Ferguson tagged on “That, and one other reason,” seemingly a reference to gay marriage, which has only recently become legal in several states.
“And we all started chuckling and said that’s right, Gobber’s coming out in this movie,” DuBois laughed. “I just love that about Craig. He’s always got just a little extra something for you. I think it’s nice. It’s progressive, it’s honest, and it feels good, so we wanted to keep it.”
The ad-libbed one-liner will now need to be written into Gobber’s role in Part 3, which DuBois says he has just started outlining.
“It does make for an interesting revelation because now, what does that mean, do we shed a little more light on Gobber’s love life?” DeBlois asked.

Look what’s here, it’s comics! Click and go read em. From the news post:
Hello my friends!
It’s been a while. I’m trying to stretch these comic making muscles again, so here are a load of sketchy sillies. In the past year, I’ve been doing some work in books and tv, as I’ve mentioned, some of it working out and some of it not. But I’m very excited to tell you that I just finished this book with Scholastic, which should be out next fall! It’s a lot of fun and I hope you will like it!
I’m working on the sequel to the Hark A Vagrant book next with Drawn and Quarterly, so good news, you’ll be seeing comics more frequently! And I miss making them.
