Guys, there is some major Gravity Falls news! 😀
Some of it is good, some of it is bad, and some of it makes you love it and hate it at the same time (kind of like how Han and Leia feel about each other for part of Episode V).
Good news: The first 6 episodes of Gravity Falls are coming out on a DVD on October 15th! It’s called “6 Strange Tales”, and comes with a Journal #3. SOme guy somehow got it early, and he reviewed it here:
Bad news: Alex Hirsch, the creator of Gravity Falls, has confirmed that Season 2 won’t air until 2014. Like, about a year after the season finale aired (maybe a little later, but still in 2014). So to make up for that…
More good news: There are gonna be shorts part of a series called “Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained”! 😀 They’re all gonna tie in with an episode.
You can find out that information, along with when the shorts air, at http://themysteryofgravityfalls.tumblr.com/post/63062880988/we-now-know-each-companion-episode-that-will-air and at http://themysteryofgravityfalls.tumblr.com/post/60970278842/indigo-galaxies-dippers-guide-to-the-unexplained.
News that you’ll love and hate at the same time: There’s this site called Search For the Blindeye. I can’t link to it, because it has a swear word in it, but “Search for the blindeye” was the code at the end of the season finale. The site has a picture of Bill, and the source code has art of Bill that sometimes updates with codes. I think Alex Hirsch is behind it, even though he said he wasn’t. Here’s what happened once: Once, the code in the ASCII art of Bill Cipher was “QUESTIONS ANSWERS DISTRACTING OBJECTS”. Later that day, Alex Hirsch Tweeted this referring to his Reddit page: “Questions! Answers! Distracting objects!” Coincidence? I think not.
The Search For the Blindeye site came with a story, and it’s somewhat confusing. Unfortunately, that’s the only part of the story we have so far. There was a code that said “More each week” on October 2nd. Perhaps the story will be updated on October 9th? Here’s the story, with the swear word changed:
“Ow! Ow! Seriously? Was that really necessary?”
Grembert grabbed at the oddly smooth absence where his ear had been just a moment ago and cursed his luck. “What the heck is wrong with you witches? Can’t you just accept cash or livestock like everyone else?” The witch cackled with glee, as witches are wont to do, and did a wobbly dance of amusement, her bracelets and baubles jangling in a most annoying fashion. “FOR THE FOOL WHO LISTENS, BUT YET CANNOT HEAR! A PRICE MOST CRUEL, I TAKETH YOUR EAR!”
She continued to dance with uncoordinated abandon. Now there were claps involved. She was really getting into it. “Look,” grunted Grembert, “you got my ear, you’ve done your stupid dance, now can I please get what I came here for?” “You should be thankful!” cautioned the witch, now doing The Cabbage Patch, “My sister is less charitable than I! She takes hands! And sometimes lesser organs. One ear is a small price to pay for THIS!”
The witch reached down her own throat, like, up to her elbow, and pulled out a glowing purple vial. “That’s disgusting!” exclaimed Grembert. “What?” grunted the witch. “That thing you did, reaching into your throat. How did you do that?” replied Grembert. “I’m a witch,” said the witch. “Now sprinkle this into the eyes of the one you deem worthy. But only use it ONCE, or there will be ironic, horrifying consequences, you hear me?!”
“I half-heard you,” muttered Grembert, rubbing his earless stump, and with that he crawled back out of the witch’s lair…….
Weird, huh? I’m not sure who Grembert, or the witch is.
Peace out, and May the Force be with you! 😀
