Revision as of 15:39, 23 April 2005

A fantastic e-mail, very much like "personal favorities", but with real stuff in it. Nice to see clips of all 124 e-mails being combined together to make up "SBEMAIL: The Musical". Good job. Hope we see another storyline like this in the next three and a half years (or so). -

P.S. The e-mail also reminded me of "virus".

The best email yet. -sesameseed 16:46, 22 Feb 2005 (MST)

The music that begins after "Experience dance tonight!" bears a resemblance to that of "The Cheat Is Not Dead", does anyone agree? -Suicune64

Yes, but not enough so as to make it worth mentioning in the Fun Facts, sadly... --Shadow Hog 18:40, 22 Feb 2005 (MST)

I figured such, just trying to make sure I'm not hearing it incorrectly. On a similar note, does anyone agree that the music that begins during "Awkward peaches" sounds like the intro to Everybody to the Limit? It seems that TBC are making not only visual references but distinct musical ones, as well...-Suicune64 I think it's similar/interesting/cool enough to be a fun fact-- Asploder

Are you all sure that Speedy Gonzalez says his Arribas then his Andales? I'm fairly sure Strong Bad's got it right...

Yes I am a big Loony Tunes fan and I watch the cartoons all the time. Also doing a google search on speedy Arriba! will also prove my point. Now who's changed it back? I've more than proved my point?

I'm pretty sure that the voice that says "grand." is Powered-By-The-Cheat Homestar. --Homsar999 12:38, 24 Feb 2005 (CST)

I'm pretty sure you're wrong, because that word is from mile and the ONLY time "grand" is spoken by anyone in mile, it's PbTC Strong Bad. --Jay 11:59, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
But then again, that comment was understandable since the Powered by the Cheat voices all sound very similar. →evin290 12:12, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
This is true. Maybe I was a little more blunt than I meant to be - I do that sometimes. But it can be proved that it was Strong Bad, so we shouldn't put Homestar. --Jay 12:17, 24 Feb 2005 (MST)
I think they should put that in the goofs section. unknown
Why? I compared the two lines (between rock opera and mile) and it IS PbtC Strong Bad. That's all there is to it. --Jay 19:38, 18 Apr 2005 (UTC)

There should be info on all the scenes that are shown. --Aussie Evil 16:16, 3 Mar 2005 (MST) I think there should be an image gallery which shows the images that go along with the lyrics. unknown

Oooh, ooh, that sounds like fun! *wants to go make images* :) (These would go on the Rock Opera Context page, though, not this page)Aurora Szalinski 12:14, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)

Is the pond that Dangeresque falls into the same pond from lures & jigs and montage?

Hey! I had an thought. A dumb one, albeit, but an thought, nevertheless. Could Strong Sad representing "Annoymous" be a reference for "Strong Bad is Jail"? He DID "annoynymously quip"...The Marauding Maniac 18:35, 9 Apr 2005 (MDT)


Closed Fun Facts

These fun facts were on STUFF and closed. If you would like to debate these facts, please make sure your votes are seperated from the original ones.

Pizza Pizzazz (Declined)

The appearance of a spinning pizza during the word "Pizzaz" may be a reference to the Pizzaz Pizza Oven, which rotates the pizza under a heating element to cook it.

  • Decline. I don't think that they were purposefully referencing the Pizzaz Pizza oven. The two words are just spelled similarly. (Also, there was a restaurant where I live called "Pizza Pizzazz," but you don't see me putting that down as a fun fact) :-) →evin290 10:02, 27 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Strong decline. I don't think that this this really is a "fun fact." It's barely a fact. It's incidental at best. ISlayedTheKerrek 09:50, 28 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • SUPER DECLINE. Why it was a fun fact probably has to with some people make stuff y'know, with words from bigger words. --oopsyoubwokeit 13:19, 21 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline Or, it could be... Pizzaz, which I think is pretty obvious. --acekirby13 08:47, 25 Mar 2005 (MST)

Rose-face/Rosebud (Declined)

When Strong Bad yells "Rose face!" it could be a possible reference to Citizen Kane and the famous "Rosebud."

  • Weak Decline. Felt this was a bit of a stretch, though I did wonder if it was a reference myself. Still, "Rosebud" is the last dying whisper of Citizen Kane, while Rose-face is anything BUT whispered. --TheEggman 16:50, 2 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline Too much of a stretch, IMO. --Zonath 09:14, 11 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Strong Decline Just because two words sound the same does not mean they are connected. He doesn't even say it in the way that rosebud is used in Citizen Kane. --AtionSong
  • Decline. Not even close. -- tomstiff 09:33, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Sender's parents (Declined)

Second time Strong Bad talked about both the sender's parents. This was last done in animal about Spud Jr.

  • Decline. Didn't consider this a "fun" fact at all... --TheEggman 16:50, 2 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Second. It was well observed, but as a 'second incidence' it isn't much fun. --Eujensc 13:37, 3 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Computer over. Virus = Very Second. Kvb 04:54, 10 Apr 2005 (MDT)
    • Decline. Any fun fact that states "This is the n-th time that ... " should be deleted outright. Well ... assuming n is not 1, of course. -- tomstiff 09:31, 11 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Definitely Maybe? Yes? No! (Declined)

"Definitely baby" (The line ended by Vector Strong Bad) is a reference to the album Definitely Maybe by Oasis

  • Severe decline. Just because something sounds like something else doesn't make it a reference. →evin290 18:41, 2 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Severe Second -- 17:28, 8 Mar 2005 (MST)
    • Ticked-off Third -- I just think it's stupid. That's all.
  • ULTIMATE DECLINE. It was just three words toghether from three different emails. Why was ths STUFF'D? --oopsyoubwokeit 13:16, 21 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • a-digga-diggga-digga-DELETE! This is stupid. It's not why was this STUFF'd- why was it even put on the board in the first place. ISlayedTheKerrek 12:53, 24 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Definitely Decline. -tomstiff 30 Mar 2005
  • I choose you, Declinachu! Kvb 14:05, 1 Apr 2005 (MST)
  • Decline Seriously. Dasrik 02:15, 5 Apr 2005 (MDT)
  • Decline Seriously, seriously. -Walking Armless

Another brick in the wall (Declined)

At the end of the opera, the cast is on a stage, where the bottom of the stage is a white bricked wall with blue brick outlines. This might be a refrence to the popular rock opera The Wall, by Pink Floyd, as the wall in the Floyd's opera is the same. MajorB 17:07, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)

  • Decline. Good thinking, but this is definitely not a reference. This isn't the first time this stage has been shown (See A Decemberween Pageant) →evin290 16:29, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)
    • I just watched ADP, and the part of the stage in question is not visible. Perhaps I should look in the email where the stage appears (I don't remember the name right now). MajorB 17:07, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)
      • In the very first scene after marzipan says "Homestar, I don't think those are your lines." That's when they show the whole stage.
        • did I miss that? 19:05, 23 Feb 2005 (MST)
  • Comment Just because it's already shown doesn't mean it's not a reference. --acekirby13 19:17, 24 Mar 2005 (MST)


I'm not really sure if I like this table in the transcript. It makes it very hard to read and looks a little oogly. Maybe we could stick the actions on another page, like Rock Opera Context? →FireBird
