It is times like this when i wish that I updated this thing more so you would already know who Brad Neely is and how much I love him. But for one reason or another i don't think i have ever written about him. So here it goes.
Brad Neely is a comic writer and cartoonist from Austin Texas. He has a series of cartoons on an online channel called Super Deluxe. I love this channel (in fact the next post will prove that beyond a shadow of a blah blah blah).
But Brad originally came to my attention for a little independent cartoon he did called "Washington" which was basically a little diddy about our founding father with a few embelishments here and there.
Recently I have been unable to find any copies of the cartoon on line. I couldn't figure out why it dissapeared until i read this interview.
Is there any reason why that hasn’t found its way onto SuperDeluxe.com? Are you holding on to that for some reason?
I don’t own Washington anymore. Spike and Mike’s Twisted Film Festival owns it. I signed a contract that I didn’t understand. And once I realized my error, I had sold the rights to the whole thing, characters and all, for two-hundred fifty dollars.
When I tried to fix the problem they would not talk to me. It’s my fault. I didn’t read what I signed. But God, nice guys, let me tell ya.
Oh Spike and Mike! You dicks! Your festival hasn't been funny since Beavis and Butthead left it. You can't even get Plymptoons any more! Why do you get to own one of the greatest pieces of internet art that I have ever laid my eyes on? For shame.
So I want to get a copy of Washington and host it here. I know I am putting myself at great risk, but lucky for me, no one reads this blog.
I want to talk more about Brad Neely, especially his amazing commentary track for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone called Wizard People, Dear Reader, but it is time to go home and take a nap.
But do watch all of the professor brothers cartoons (especially Bible history #1).
And do watch all of Baby Cakes.
And do read all of Creased Comics.
And do have a nice day.
