Casey Lalonde, “Thank You”

Something very strange is going on at MS Paint Adventures today.  Oh, the comic is normal (as normal as Homestuck can ever be), but the ads are very mysterious.  How so, you may ask?  Well, I suppose I’ll have to stop beating around the bush and tell you.

This is the music of Casey Lalonde. It’s pretty good ambient/indietronica stuff, though that’s not the sort of music I listen to all that often.  Plus the album art is pretty cool, and is apparently done by Lalonde himself.  Why do I bring this up?  Well I found out about Mr. Lalonde because he is currently advertising his album on mspaintadventures.com.  Not only that, he’s paying a ridiculous amount of money for the privilege to do so–if you live in the US and click one of his ads, you make Andrew Hussie $242.40.  None of this would be impressive, however, were it not for the fact that Casey Lalonde happens to share a name with two Homestuck characters.  There’s Rose Lalonde, one of the strip’s protagonists, and Casey, a young salamander who follows Rose around and sort of serves as her familiar.  This can’t be a coincidence.  No, something is afoot!

(or maybe some random friend of casey lalonde’s told him that he shared a name with some webcomic characters and he decided to buy an ad on the site for the lulz.  that could also be a possibility.)
