10 years!

Nice toon. I added this to the filmography of mr. bland and señor's charecter pages. I'm glad they re-did the old book. and there is another thing that I saw, when señor gets crushed, it says "sbloncheked" or what ever sb's candy bar was. Cessna Man! 23:43, 21 August 2006 (UTC)

I really liked this toon. It really captures the series' appeal. Who's doing the transcript for this, by the way? I hope they get done soon. We should put up pictures of Senor, Mr. Bland, etc.'s new forms on their pages. And also, Senor's voice doesn't sound like Matt's; think it could've been done by someone else?-Brightstar Shiner 00:00, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I'm almost certain that Mr. Bland was voiced by Mike. Anyone know for sure? --BigScaryMike 01:52, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Not on main page?

Does anyone else not see this on the Main Pages? Should this be included as a Fun Fact of some kind?

I see it there. Maybe clear your cache? Heimstern Läufer 00:47, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Introduction

The intro says that Homestar enters the contest yet again. This seems a little misleading, as the toon is a modernization, not a sequel, as the intro could imply.

Everybody Loves The Homestar Runner

doesnt he say "Everybody loves THE me" not "loves a'me"? that would make more sense to me. --(superplough not logged in) 132.181.7.1 02:01, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

He does say "the me." You can go ahead and change that. —BazookaJoe 02:06, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Mega Man Introductions?

I think that Mr. Bland, Señor, and The Robot's introductions may be references to games from the Mega Man series, in which the bosses are introduced with a snazzy background, a pose, and a sound effect before you begin their levels. Or, is this a more general reference? Trey56 02:07, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

The opening to The New Leave it to Beaver Show introduced the cast in a similar fashion if I remember correctly. Can't find any substantiating images though. Does it have to be a reference? Maybe it's just a visually interesting way to introduce characters. PolarBoy 02:37, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Slo-Mo Action

Currently, the article page says that Homestar's slo-mo kicking of The Cheat is a reference to Super Mario Strikers. I think that it's actually a reference to The Matrix.

Hmmm... I dont think its necessarily a Matrix reference...its just in slow motion. the camera doesnt rotate around Homestar like the famous "bullet time" effect usually does. To me it just looks like a bicycle kick. - Del Taco? 02:49, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

Yeah, you're probably right. But I don't think TBC would make a reference to Super Mario Strikers. The Spainish Inquisition 03:24, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

I still alive?

I think Senor says "I see the light!" Instead of "I still alive"! I see the light is much funnier. The Chaps would go for I See The Light!-Me

I hear "I still alive," funny or not. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 02:48, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I originally thought it was "i see the light", but i think "I still alive" makes more sense with the way he waves his hand up through the grapes. And his bad grammar does fit with hes dialect. -Del Taco? 02:52, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
I was just about to add a discussion on this line. I hear, "I feel alive!" His accent is a little hard to decipher, so I don't see this ending well. Prepare for weeks of arguing...--Bobo the King 02:54, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
FWIW, the first time I heard it I heard "I steel alive!" and it was hilarious. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:03, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

All right, you crap-for-brains

What is it that the Grape Fairie is saying in his first line. I can't tell what it is, but it doesn't sound anything like "stupid" to me. Thoughts? --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 02:55, 22 August 2006 (UTC)

My first guess is "sorry brains", but I'm not sure enough to change the transcript.--Bobo the King 02:59, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
Perhaps "slowest brains"? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 03:05, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
ive just listeend to it a bunch of times and im pretty sure its just one syllable. kinda sounds like "All right you slows brains". Im not really hearing the 2 sylables of slowest and not the "ee" sound of sorry. But yea definatly not "stupid brains" -Del Taco? 03:13, 22 August 2006 (UTC)
