ok here's a question. mr big gold, could you describe your rise to (financial) power - did you start out near the top, or did you have to work your way up?

Also, second question, when and how did you come to hire sybel, and have there been assistants prior to her.
t 4th Jan 2015, 4:15 PM edit delete reply
Mr. Big Gold, Why do you never use your hands for gesturing?
And if I may, Why did you get into the business?
Wuffles 4th Jan 2015, 8:30 PM edit delete reply
Ah, beat me to it! But yeah, I'm pretty curious too.

What do you like about Vinnie and Fridge's tracks that made you sign them on to your label?
Alex 4th Jan 2015, 4:36 PM edit delete reply
Could we see you (and/or Sybel) without your clothes on~?
Mathrodite 4th Jan 2015, 4:55 PM edit delete reply
What on Sybel's CV made her qualified for the highly prestigious job of professional gesturer? I'm trying to break into the field myself.
Fluffhoof 4th Jan 2015, 5:08 PM edit delete reply
Sybel, what do you like to do in your free time?
Sly 4th Jan 2015, 5:23 PM edit delete reply
So mr. big gold, is that your natural hair color? Do you have any mech parts?
Finz_ 4th Jan 2015, 6:05 PM edit delete reply
<*pop* open the vintage, tilting glass in BG's direction> Now, Big G. - do you mind if I call you Big G.? I hear that you once rocked a pair of leather chaps and suit jacket at a show. Do you happen to have a picture for those of us who missed the performance?

-If this one gets asked please edit it down as needed lol. I just picture him flashing that deliciously toothy grin again xD

Mr. Big Gold; how many Leisure Credits does your label manage on a daily basis? Are there any other organizations that manage more or less LC (apart from Swaine Corp, or course)?
chris-tar 4th Jan 2015, 6:27 PM edit delete reply
Big Gold;
1) Were you a famous rock star or electronic music maker yourself once?
2) Is Sybel related to you, or is she your wife or your girlfriend?
3) Is it possible for someone to have a "synth voice box" implanted making them a perfect singer?
4) a) Just how rich are you?
b) Do you know the president of the city or any royalty?
c) Do you live on the upper most level of Hyperion City?
d) What special benefits do wealthy elites like you get to enjoy that lower levelers don't?
5) How old are you and Sybel?

Does Sybel, do any other things besides doing gestures and does she get to talk any?
ashrium 4th Jan 2015, 6:57 PM edit delete reply
Uh does sybel talk or is she mute? Can get to see her eyes?
DraconicSoul 4th Jan 2015, 7:46 PM edit delete reply
is it the line of Work Sybel learned to do which doesnt need her to handle the prospective and acquired clientele by way of speaking to them in negotiation?
Wuffles 4th Jan 2015, 8:32 PM edit delete reply
Besides music, what kind of entertainment is available in a world with DLC? Are pets as common now as they were Pre-city, and if so, do interactions with pets count for DLC? [Sorry for all the questions!]
Liska 4th Jan 2015, 8:47 PM edit delete reply
I'm terrible with asking questions and can't think of anything, so I just have to come in and "hehehhee" at the two of them.

Happy 2015 !

How does the trim of your clothing light up/shine like that? You must be very popular with cats. Speaking of which, do you like cats?
Guest 4th Jan 2015, 9:53 PM edit delete reply
Mr Big Gold, are you gay or straight?
Castelin 4th Jan 2015, 10:13 PM edit delete reply
... Do you even need those glasses?

Let's keep things professional -- what can we expect to see and hear from your production studios in the near future (say, over the next year)?
thulium69 5th Jan 2015, 12:00 AM edit delete reply
Where do you keep your batteries, so the suit can glow?
Tsunaflare 5th Jan 2015, 12:15 AM edit delete reply
Sybel What do you look like in Blue.

BG Whats the Electric bill for your light up cloths cost
Axite 5th Jan 2015, 12:40 AM edit delete reply
Mr. Big Gold:
1. Interesting hair colour choice, is it natural? Does the downstairs match?
2. Cut or Uncut?
3. Any fun piercings? ;)
4. Are you a musician yourself?


1. Favorite colour? Does it happen to be green?
2.Any juicy dirt on Mr. Big Gold?
3. How long have you been working for Mr. Big Gold?
Saxony 5th Jan 2015, 1:22 AM edit delete reply
Mr. Gold: How did your company get started?
Lizzy B 5th Jan 2015, 1:43 AM edit delete reply
(Vintage wine, huh? I wonder just /how/ vintage.)

So, Mr. BG, seeing as you're so busy, I imagine your schedule is packed tight. What do you like to do when you /do/ have some spare time to yourself?

& Ms. Sybel, do you enjoy your career as an assistant & gesturing professional? Is it as leisurely as we all would like to think?
Ribac 5th Jan 2015, 1:47 AM edit delete reply
Can we see Sybel's eyes, or she doesn't have any so gestures are her only way of communication and perception of the world? Or is that a DLC thing?
Ribac 5th Jan 2015, 1:48 AM edit delete reply
Sorry for the spam! It was unintentional! :/
Hati 5th Jan 2015, 3:37 AM edit delete reply
What's your background? We know Vinnie's history; what's yours? Were you always wealthy, or is there a bit of 'have-not' to your past?
fan 5th Jan 2015, 3:51 AM edit delete reply
where did you get sybel?
Jax 5th Jan 2015, 4:03 AM edit delete reply
So, Big Gold what do you do in your spare time when you're not busy making millions?
FuryOfFirestorm 5th Jan 2015, 6:26 AM edit delete reply
Does Sybel know how to do the thing?
Shadillac 6th Jan 2015, 5:41 AM edit delete reply
YES! I as hoping someone would post that! "Ju-Lee, Do the thing!"
HD 5th Jan 2015, 8:42 AM edit delete reply
The tieknot seems off to me and his elbowpatches don't look appropriately symmetrical. This is an unsustainable situation! He has to take it off. And to keep up the partnered look, Sybel has to get naked as well. After all, what were an Ask segment without some nudies and fanservice. (=
jeyde 5th Jan 2015, 9:06 AM edit delete reply
Just wanted to let you know, I found your comic today, and I've spent all night reading it. I love your comic! I cannot wait for more <3

Anyway, question. What was your first impression of fridge and Vinnie?
Wilychaser 5th Jan 2015, 11:05 AM edit delete reply
Hi Mr. Big Gold!
1) Do you have any romantic interest in men?
2) Do you consider youself a bear?
3) Do you workout or are you naturally gifted? *wink* <3
4) Boxer shorts or briefs?
5) Could we see you sporting a pair of speedos/tight briefs? ;)
6) What was you first impression of Vinnie Small? Do you like him?
jaimecito 5th Jan 2015, 2:53 PM edit delete reply
Hello Mr. G!

Who did you have to sleep with to get where you are today?
natranr 5th Jan 2015, 5:53 PM edit delete reply
Hey Mr. Big Gold,

Every one here would really like to see both you and Sybal naked, if that's at all possible.

What are the core values of your studio? Any long-term goals, beyond "get rich?"
Wilychaser 5th Jan 2015, 8:32 PM edit delete reply
P.S.: Mr. "Big" Gold....Big...could you elaborate please? :3
John 5th Jan 2015, 8:54 PM edit delete reply
Mr Gold, can I ask how often you sponser new talent? Is it an annual thing or something? I understand the music industry is quite fast-moving.
Kiba 6th Jan 2015, 4:27 AM edit delete reply
How much DLC do you spend in a day for all of your interactions with various people, especially Sybel?
YangYueLan 6th Jan 2015, 6:33 AM edit delete reply
My favorite animation that you do is the moving lights. I love watching them. (Moving lights were also something I liked from driving at night as kid).
Madock345 6th Jan 2015, 9:16 AM edit delete reply
Is the hair artificial or did the apocalypse bring about radiation-induced hair mutations?

If it's artificial, why green? Do they not make golden hair dye?

Big Gold, what was the one song that propelled you to stardom?
What do you look for in an upcoming band?

Sybel, if you could change one thing about your job, what would it be?
minatonamikaze 6th Jan 2015, 3:07 PM edit delete reply
*blushes* I was wondering if you could strip bare naked in your limosine?
minatonamikaze 6th Jan 2015, 3:11 PM edit delete reply
well i see someone posted could u strip already but can you jerk off in the limosine or shake your booty?

I second Chris-tar's questions, especially 4 d), and also want to ask:

Obviously, DLC isn't really a problem for you, and I expect you're a force to be reckoned with. Do you and your fellow movers-and-shakers ever contemplate changing the system in a big way? Personally, I can't help but wonder if DLC is bad for business—surely it limits word-of-mouth if people can't afford to *talk* about your latest hits…
Feare909 7th Jan 2015, 4:45 AM edit delete reply
Do you do ANYTHING by yourself?
justkeepondriving 7th Jan 2015, 12:09 PM edit delete reply
Big Gold, what genre(s) or style(s) of music does your record label usually put out? Does M-308 Gunner fit in with what you normally produce?
