Trivia Time
I think it's been long enough that I can tell this story...

Once upon a time, over a decade ago, I was a Homestar obsessed teenager, who triangulated where their office was at the time from some off hand remarks in interviews. This is quite an invasive thing to do to anyone, so as a responsible adult, I do not condone my actions. (And I'm sure they don't have the place any more.)

A year or so later, living quite far from the ATL, I managed to finagle my way into a trip to the area by dating a guy who lived nearby. I "wasn't" in the "relationship" because of "that", I "promise". At this point, their office's address was publicly available on google, so I knew for sure that my original guess was correct. I convinced his friend to drive us out there to take creepshots of the doors.

And there it was. Bowling alley and frosted glass, Pleasure and Buisness Business. We took some photos of the directory outside and their famous labelled doors (with flash) and were getting ready to leave when we saw obvious activity inside. The Chappos had been at a convention the day before, so I didn't think they'd be there. My vote was to cheese it, but one of the dorks I was with knocked on the door while I cheesed it around the corner.

Yeah, so, for unknown reasons, they let us inside and gave us a tour and were super nice and welcoming to a bunch of random-butt kids who had shown up at their office and taken flash pics of their door (one of which had only seen dragon!!!! loser!!!!!!). They grilled me a little about how I found the place, so I just said google and left out the hours I had spent on google maps trying to match up the vague clues they had given. They also mentioned the wiki and asked me not to tell them about the office, but I think the statute of limitations is up. Everybody was there, Ryan included. It was pretty crazy, son. I was mostly too nervous to talk, but they were impressed that I knew about the 80s hair band poster lol.... And that cabinet underneath still had the box with paper towel rolls industry secrets in it. They had a Wii with a Homestar wrap on it, which was sooo sweet. They said it was a prototype, but they'd have to charge like $30 for it and nobody would pay that. And I was like "uh dude... I would definitely buy that with my lunch money". I took a bunch of photos of the office and one of us together, but that's all lost to time. This was before smartphone cameras were in wide use, kids.

They even offered to go to lunch with us, but we had just eaten and were too dumb to say "oh, of course, heroes of mine, let's go..." It's not like we could've grabbed drinks together though.

That's about all I remember.

Also, they're shorter than you'd think. Or maybe I just imagined they would be 9 feet tall.

Also also, I lost the paper towel roll a few years ago during a move. :( And I never married Matt, but they have the same alma mater, so that counts right? (Even though he's only seen dragon!!!! loser!!!!!!)

The end.
