Today at Bigfest Alex on stage talked a lot about the show and shared some new facts (on Bill and Ford and
AXOLTL!!!!) with us Everything in quotes is
an actual quote!
(here, have a pic of Alex and awesome Stans, took it while waiting for my turn)
He started by saying he’s suprised and glad the show is so popular here, and people were just cheering on him like crazy, it was very impressive.
Then he asked the crowd,
what episode they wanted to know more about and decided to talk about Sock
Originally Bill wasn’t in
it, but since he and the crew figured, that “kids must be missing Bill”, they
came up with “making a deal plot”. Then they had to decide “why on earth” would
Dipper shake hands with “basically devil in a triangular shape”
So there was a plot,
where Dipper and Bill become friends. Bill pulls Dipper out of his body and
they are flying around the city together pulling pranks on people (?like taking
their pants off – not sure about this part lol?) That was too unbelievable
though, and got discarded, because Dipper wouldn’t do something like this.
Then Alex talked a bit
about his voice-acting and did an impression of Bill and “reality is an
illusion” catchphrase. The crowd went nuts, and he pretended to be scared and
asked “B-bill?”. And then answered himself in Bill’s voice “I AM HERE!”. And
Alex started looking around again like Bill was actually there on stage too, it
was so amazing!
About the Journal.
Alex was like, okay, one of
the main questions to be answered – where was Ford all this time?
