I’ve waited until the end to post the video, so that you can enjoy reading them first. My brother wrote the music to this, and I wrote the lyrics and sang the voices. It was really fun to create, especially because it meant I got to do a project with my brother.
I have always found it true that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it’s important to not be blinded by the fact, that if you have so little money that you have difficulty meeting your basic human needs, then yes, that severe LACK of money can keep you from happiness.
Deep thoughts for a Monday, i know. ;-)
It may not be a dying sister, but when we make life’s choices, and find we don’t like our path, we usually have to find NEW paths, because the previous one simply doesn’t exist anymore. Funny, that.
It was fun trying to keep the action/backgrounds interesting when it was quite repetitive in that every panel is just Vachel riding a sheep and Dee riding Blake.
I remember trying to describe this sequence to some friends “You see, the vulture is a pirate, singing a sea shanty, only it’s about knitting, and instead of being on a ship, they’re all riding sheep.”
I mostly got raised eyebrows. Yet, it became one of the most successful sequences I did.

They held one up and said, “what is this?”
“A crook,” I said.
They were impressed. I had no idea I was so literate!
