The Deleteheads Download is a Homestar Runner email newsletter started by The Brothers Chaps in 2018 to share news and exclusive previews of new or upcoming Homestar Runner material with fans, and is the second such newsletter, the first having been discontinued in 2003. Installments are presented by Strong Sad's character as leader of The Deleteheads, using Strong Sad's email address (depressio@homestarrunner.com). The option to sign up was first offered on January 13, 2018 (Trogday), as part of several updates to the Index Page.

Be seated, Deleteheads!

Please be seated, Deleteheads!

Just dropping you all a line to say thanks for validating my unhealthy obsession with my own brother. And to give you an exclusive peek at Stinkoman Level 10!

We here at Deleteheads Central (aka underneath this Afghan Whigs afghan blanket on my bed with an old Lappy) managed to get a hold of Videlectrix Two himself via land line and he smuggled us this gif of a new destructible floor block in action via 1600 baud dial-up modem.

Sadly, Videlectrix One stormed in before he could send me any more and started ranting about "Grood Gaphics." When Two tried to correct him, it only made things worse.

A couple days later, I got this photo in the mail. Videlectrix Two says he found it on the floor of the 'Boardalectrix' offices next door. To what does this portend?!

Let the rampant, unchecked speculation begin!

Crapfully his,
Strong Sad

Vol. 2 (July 17, 2018)

Be seated, Deleteheads!

Trog-Board!!

Please be seated, Deleteheads. The crowdfunding Kickcheater campaign for Trogdor!! The Board Game is live at last (like my fav Sabbath record) at THIS LINK RIGHT HERE!

There's plenty to check out there including a Boardelectrix commercial (I can never tell if it's retro, ironic, or if they honestly don't know what decade it is) and a gameplay demo with yours truly, the Deathly Pallor, in my very own tabletop review show 'Six-Sadded, Die.'

If you like what you see, be sure and pledge it up so tabletop burnination can become a reality for all. Aaand so I can finally get revenge on Strong Bad for burning my chiaroscuro dragon drawing. It's a cooperative game but I can sabotage SB's efforts from the inside! Like ophiocordyceps unilateralis, the zombie fungus that takes over insects' brains and makes them do its bidding!

Sneak peek time, Deleteheads. HomestarRunner.com is working on a redesigned front page that will work on all devices without Flash. That's right, the website is finally being brought into the year...

Well, about 2007 from the looks of it. But hey, that's better than nothing, right? Give it a spin! See what you like and what you hate. Don't worry, the old Flash version of the site will always be available right up until Adobe throws the killswitch (I'm campaigning to make Strong Bad the one who actually throws it!).

Crapfully his,
Strong Sad
