Artist commentary:

ndividedbyzero:

Initially, I was going to compose this as one of those classic "ironically bad" songs, which I love dearly. At some point, it became clear I was going to drive it in a bit of a different direction, and then a few more directions, until I'd pretty much done a sick 360 degree spin across the musical canvas that is FL Studio. Wow that was kind of a weird metapohr? All in all, what you hear is what you get, and that's pretty much all I have to say on the matter. I don't want to take up too much of the commentary space, so I'll leave the rest of it ot Nick and... uh, well, yeah.

Nick Tucker:

I sketched out two versions of this art, the clean one and the "meme" one, which was more popular. And that's pretty much entirely understandable. Also, the title bar is based off the spine of a PS1 game.

CALIBORN:

WAIT. WHO ARE THESE RIDICULOUS PEOPLE? FORGET THEM.

HERE IS WHAT REALLY MATTERS.

A MESSAGE. FROM YOUR MASTER LORD.

BY THIS POINT. YOU HAVE ALREADY COME TO TERMS WITH THE FACT THAT "HOMOSUCK. DIRECTOR'S CUT, OF THE YEAR EDITION". IS BY FAR AND ABOVE. THE BEST PIECE OF ART. THAT YOU WILL EVER HAVE THE UNDESERVED PLEASURE TO EXPERIENCE, IN YOUR FLEETING MORTAL LIVES. IT IS A BEAUTIFUL MIXTURE. OF A MAGNUM'S OPUS THAT ASSUAGES THE AURAL SENSES. AND A GRAPHICAL COMPANION PIECE TO DELIGHT YOUR VISUAL WORLD.

THE SOUND OF THE MATTER. WHICH IS TO SAY THE "SONG". CONTAINS FIVE SECTIONS OF GLORY. OR EVEN "ACTS". SUBDIVIDED INTO USUALLY TWO FURTHER ACTS. THE FIRST TO REPRESENT MY VERY OWN BLOOD, SWEAT AND ARTISTIC PROCESS AS I CREATE THE LEGENDARY CHEF DE OUEVRE KNOWN AS "HOMOSUCK" ITSELF. AND THE SECOND TO REPRESENT THE CHAPTER OF HOMOSUCK THAT CORRESPONDS. YOU MAY NOTICE THAT WITH EACH PARTITION, THE SONG DOES NOT SIMPLY "PROGRESS". INSTEAD, IT EVOLVES. A TESTAMENT TO THE INCREDIBLE EVOLUTION OF MY BIOGRAPHICAL HERO'S JOURNEY. THAT I RECALLED TO YOU IN ANOTHER PLACE, AT ANOTHER TIME. I THINK WE ARE ALL IN AGREEMENT HERE. THAT THE WAY THE TWO MIRROR EACH OTHER. SO ELEGANTLY, AND SO CLEARLY. BASICALLY FUCKING RULES.

NOW. I HAVE ALREADY HEARD RUMORS, AND WHISPERS. FROM THE MYSTERIOUS AKASHIC SERVERS DEEP IN THE FURTHEST RING. VOICES THAT SAY THINGS LIKE, "I CAN'T BELIEVE CALIBORN COULD MAKE SOMETHING THIS GOOD". OR, "THIS IS TOO 'AWESOME' FOR HOMOSUCK".

FIRST OF ALL. FUCK YOU.

SECOND OF ALL THOUGH, YOU ARE SLIGHTLY COMPLETELY CORRECT. THAT MY INVOLVEMENT IN THIS PROJECT. WAS NOT A COMPLETE AND UTTER SOLO VENTURE. IN FACT. YOU MAY ALREADY BE AWARE. THAT THE ART PIECE WAS IN TRUTH MADE BY THE INCOMPARABLE [INSERT NAME I FORGOT HERE]. AND THE SONG ITSELF. WAS ESSENTIALLY COMPOSED BY THE LOVELY [INSERT WHOEVER TEH FUCK'S NAME HERE]. AND I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING. SOMETHING LIKE. "BUT IT'S LAZY TO GET OTHER PEOPLE TO DO YOUR WORK FOR YOU.". OR. "HOW COULD YOU BE SUCH A MISERABLE SELLOUT?".

BOTH ARE EQUALLY MOOT POINTS. BECAUSE ON ONE HAND. I HAVE ALWAYS MAINTAINED THAT "WHEN DOING ART. SOMETIMES IT PAYS TO CHEAT. [...] THIS CAN SAVE TIME"1. AND ON THE OTHER HAND. WHICH IS REALLY JUST THE SAME HAND. THE DEGREE TO WHICH I SHOULD BE CREDITED FOR ALL THIS. IS PROBABLY MORE THAN YOU THINK. SURE, OTHER PEOPLE DID WHAT YOU MIGHT CALL 'THE HARD WORK'. IF YOU'RE A SHITTY BABY MORON WHO DOESN'T UNDERSTAND ART. BUT REMEMBER THAT ALL OF THIS. THE MUSIC, THE VISUALS, EVERYTHING. WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO CREATE. WITHOUT ME! IT WAS MY VISION THAT DIRECTED THIS PIECE. AND MINE ALONE.

THAT'S WHY IT'S CALLED THE DIRECTOR'S CUT, BY THE WAY.

BECAUSE I'M THE FUCKING DIRECTOR.

"WOW," YOU ARE SURELY NOW THINKING. FOR A WHILE YOU SIT AND PONDER. THE RAMIFICATIONS OF SUCH A STUNNING REVELATION. "WE ARE ALL BLOWN AWAY". "MOST SHOCKING TWIST YET". ETC ETC ETC. BUT REALLY, ALL OF THAT WAS JUST A SIDE NOTE. AND AN INTRODUCTION. NOW, WE BEGIN THE *TRUE* COMMENTARY. AND DELVE INTO THE PURE, RAW SOUL OF ALL OF THIS. TO SEE FURTHER INTRIGUING, ENLIGHTENING PARAGRAPHS. DESCRIBING IN EXCRUCIATING DETAIL EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THIS PIECE"S SECTIONS. THEIR REASONING. THEIR JUSTIFICATION. AND EVEN THEIR PURPOSE. PlEASE GO AHEAD. AND SCROLL BACK FORWARD TO THE NEXT PAGE.

WHAT. DID YOU REALLY THINK. THAT I WOULD JUST GIVE AWAY THE SECRETS TO MY TRADE? THE SPECIAL SAUCE TO THE GOURMET BUFFET??? NICE TRY, CHUMP. MAYBE YOU SHOULD JUST "INTERPRET" IT YOUR OWN WAY. AS ALL ART IS SUPPOSEDLY WONT TO BE. MAKE SOMETHING OUT OF THAT. INSTEAD OF ATTEMPTING TO FUCKING STEAL THE THOUGHTS OUT OF MY BRILLIANT MIND.

AS CONSOLATION FOR COMING THIS FAR THOUGH. I WILL GIVE YOU SOMETHING ANYWAYS. A RARE GESTURE OF "KIND NESS". IT IS A DETAILED LIST OF THE MANY LEIT MOTIFS USED IN THE SONG. COMPLETE WITH MARKERS INDICATING THE LOCATIONS. OF THEIR TIMELY APEARANCES. BECAUSE HONESTLY. THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO TO INTERPRET THAT. IT'S JUST OBVIOUS FUCKING FACTS.

ENJOY YOURSELF. (WHILE YOU CAN.) I'M OUT OF HERE.
