788: The Carriage
Title text: I learned from Achewood that since this poem is in ballad meter, it can be sung to the tune of Gilligan's Island. Since then, try as I might, I haven't ONCE been able to read it normally.
Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is a famous video game series, where the player frequently steals cars by grabbing their drivers and throwing them out of the car. In Xbox versions of GTA the Y-button is used to enter (steal) or exit a vehicle.
In this alternate edition of "Death" vs. Grand Theft Auto spinoff game by Emily Dickinson. Instead of Hair Bun Girl being carried off peacefully in Death's carriage, the girl violently carriage-jacks Death (as can be seen - she has pressed the Y-button) and takes over his carriage to use for her own purposes.
The title text refers to Randall learning from the web comic Achewood that a poem written in ballad meter can be sung to the tune of Gilligan's Island, a 1960s sitcom with a catchy intro song. Since then he has not been able to read the poem normally, he always begins to hum the tune... He does seem rather displeased with this.
- [Death with his scythe is driving a horse-drawn carriage. The text is written in two frames above and below the carriage:]
- Because I could not stop for death
- He kindly stopped for me
- [Hair Bun Girl grabs Death by the arm and pulls him off the carriage. There is a circle with the letter Y in the lower left corner. The text above the carriage is in a frame.]
- The carriage held but just oursel-
- Death: Hey!
- Hands holding Death: Grab
- Circle: Y
- [Hair Bun Girl takes off in the carriage with the scythe, leaving Death behind on the ground in the dust from the carriage taking off.]
- Hair Bun Girl: Hyah!
- [Hair Bun Girl stands with her arms crossed, and Deaths scythe next to her. The first text above her is printed as the official logo and the text below is in a type of square brackets.]
