Arturo 9000

Based on the loading screen, and the physical design when we see it in full, the Arturo 9000 actually looks more like a microfiche viewer than a computer. User:kyojikasshu 10:09, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

And, sure enough, the article gets edited as such, possibly even before I completed this post. User:kyojikasshu 10:11, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
What about Arturo being a reference to Dr. Arturo from Sliders? It's not a terribly common last name, and it's certainly the first thing a lot of people would think of. 16:00, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Arturo is a first name too, the Spanish equivalent of "Arthur." As such, it's pretty common. —Guard Duck talk 17:08, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
In the US, "Arturo" is a more common last name than "Chaps" :) --SDSpivey 17:11, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Homestar's Homestars

i'm wondering, should there be a note on the Homestar "Clothing" section that Homestar calls his stars Homestars?


these sure get up fast


Could someone explain why Homestar's picture blinking is considered a "goof"? To me, it is something to be noted, since it is unusual, but how do we know it was not done intentionally? Clearly, TBC used a movie clip of H*R, and it gives the picture a funny Harry Potter feel. It doesn't seem like an error. wbwolf (t | ed) 17:55, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

If they wanted to give it a "funny Harry Potter feel", the whole picture would have moved. Meanwhile, the "Homestar" object they use is always rigged to blink, and sometimes they've been known to forget when showing Homestar in in-universe photographs. If the sheep chewing grass in the paused KoT video is a Goof, then so is this. --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 18:03, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
With that explanation, it's more make-sense. wbwolf (t | ed) 18:05, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
(PS. Actually, modeling would have been a better example, as the KoT's page doesn't split its facts, but yeah. --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 18:07, 26 January 2009 (UTC))
I say it's not a goof, but a mystery. I watch Homestar flash movies with Firefox with a "pause flash" extension I use sometimes. And, bizarrely, Homestar's eyes blink even when the flash is paused. --Hexagonal, an unregistered user.
Yeah, it's because the loop of Homestar's Eyes blinking is a Flash movie clip, which animates continuously. (See this for more information) —Guard Duck talk 23:54, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

The Canadian Couple?

I wonder if that refers to the weekly fan stuff from Aug 05, the wedding invitation? That came from a Canadian couple. I hope so. That was me!


Would dweeoooowwwww be a reference to the the sound that the original paper made?--Shaggy | talk 20:20, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Not really, The Paper says Preeeow. That doesn't sound anything like that.--Record307 Talk/Contribs 20:45, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
It's just the narrator attempting to say "drawer" with Homestar's accent. --Jay v.2021 (Good riddance 2020) 21:30, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Oh, Yellow Crayon...

Is it just me, or did the "brellow crown" incident happen directly after the end of DNA Evidence? As Strong Sad walks in, he says to his crayon, "Oh, yellow crayon, only you know what REALLY happened!" (Maybe he means the crayon knows why the site was non-updated for so long, I don't know.) This just seems like a ref to me. Probably not though. User:WeirdAl 22:14, 26 January 2009 (UTC)

Uh, no, and I have no idea what you're talking about, frankly. MichaelXX2 mail_icon.gif link_icon.gif 22:15, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
He's saying that maybe Homsar and Strong Sad weren't the only ones who knew the truth behind the DNA Evidence. But even then, that's a stretch. -- 22:19, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Mmm... seems unlikely to me. Seems just like standard Strong Sad for him to talk to inanimate objects about his secrets. Homestar-Winner (talk) 22:21, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
Do we have an article on that? -- 22:22, 26 January 2009 (UTC)
{Edit Conflict twice} I would call it a reference if there was even the slightest mention of crayons in DNA evidence, but there is not. As such, I'd just explain it like the Exhibit A/B stuff in Bug in Mouth Disease. Just more curious insights from the Brothers Chaps. —Guard Duck talk 22:23, 26 January 2009 (UTC)


I realize it's ambiguous, but am I the only person who heard "lumple" ? It rhymes with dumple, and sounds adorable. I'm imagining a wee pre-duckshirt Homestar being positively cute and doing what a lumple does.

The "lack of visible arms" mystery perhaps deepens

Homestar demonstrates the primary uses of the brellow crown, and when the sheets of paper appear on screen, they come from the bottom and he waves the crown around them as though they're really in front of him, rather than them just being animated in front of him "in post".

So that's four objects total, manipulated at once, which I would think notable enough to be a "Remark" if we're all in agreement that he is in fact manipulating those objects. It breaks his record of three objects (is that his record?) in the show. (For those who don't feel like checking, he holds a mic, requiring one arm, and manipulates a small deck of cards, requiring two more.)

What does everybody else think? Psi 01:15, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
