Talk:Mellow Mushroom

From Homestar Runner Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Ding! Mellow Mushroom is a featured article, which means it showcases an important part of the Homestar Runner body of work and/or highlights the fine work of this wiki. We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.


[edit] Individual articles

Individual articles for Mellow Mushroom characters are simply not needed. As I said earlier, a short one line description after the character's name would suffice. -- Tom 15:42, 30 Dec 2004 (MST)

But will we give Mellow Mushroom's toons, games ete. individual articles? --Trogga 21:07, 14 Jan 2005 (MST)

Nope and nope again. Everthing concerning Mellow Mushroom can go on this page. -- Tom 21:16, 14 Jan 2005 (MST)

Can we at least vote for individual articles for Mellow Mushroom, or just put the entire Mellow Mushroom site one page? --Trogga 11:55, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

Vote? What do we need to vote about? It's the Homestar Runner Wiki. We just have an article for Mellow Mushroom because it was something The Brothers Chaps did. Everything can be summed up in one article. I don't think it's title needs to be anything other than "Mellow Mushroom." -- Tom 13:09, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

So? This Might Be A Wiki has individual articles for Mono Puff, yet it's still a They Might Be Giants fansite. I don't see why it's such big deal. --Trogga 15:47, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

At this point I don't see a need for separate articles for Mellow Mushroom stuff. If the current article gets so full that we need to split it up we should consider multiple articles. If you have a lot to contribute to this article then do it! Because MM is a company site, TBC may not have had the most artistic freedom, so we don't know for sure how much of the content we can attribute directly to them. - Dr Haggis - Talk 16:28, 15 Jan 2005 (MST)

That sounds re-zon-able. (Sorry.) --Trogga 17:44, 25 Jan 2005 (MST)

That does seem a little crazy to have individual pages for different Mellow Mushroom stuff. →evin290 19:08, 25 Jan 2005 (MST)

One page is sufficient. Post more detailed MM articles on the Mellow Mushroom Wiki. --tomstiff 00:33, 13 Mar 2005 (CST)

I don't care! I'm making individual articles anyway! No one. 3/18/2005 12:27

Are you joking tomstiff? --Trogga 15:47, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)

I assume so, for there is no thing as Mellow Mushroom Wiki. →[[User:FireBird|FireBird]]

Anywho, I think we should at least have aricles for the toon(s), games and main pages, for completeness. This may be the Homestar Runner Wiki, but don't we deserve to learn a bit more about TBC's side projects? --Trogga 20:27, 24 Mar 2005 (MST)

I agree with Dr. Haggis's comment back on Jan 15th. We don't have a need for separate articles for Mellow Mushroom stuff. And like he said, we don't know how much of the work on that site is actually theirs. -- Tom 14:59, 26 Mar 2005 (MST)

Good point. I emailed Mellow Mushroom not too long ago this:

Hi, I'm a big fan of I know that the Brothers
Chaps, the creators of helped make the Mellow
Mushroom site. How did you acquire them? Will they update the site?
Did they enjoy working on the site?

Just wondering,

I haven't received a respond. I also emailed TBC about MM, and haven't received a respond either, so now I'm neutral about individual articles for MM. What do guys think? --Trogga 19:13, 12 Apr 2005 (MDT)

Individual MM articles have no place in a H*R Wiki. A single page summary more than suffices. -- tomstiff 14:47, 20 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Then how come we have complete pages for the other side projects? --Trogga 23:45, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Nobody's written enough about MM to warrant separate articles. I'd say not to consider separate articles until someone starts writing / transcribing more of the site. Aurora the Homestar Coder 23:49, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)
One article is sufficent, especially since it appears as though this site is now quite dormant from additions by TBC... Thunderbird 00:03, 14 May 2005 (UTC)

[edit] mellow mushroom food

I have eaten at the mellow mushroom before, and it was the best pizza I ever had. have you ever eaten there?

This is pretty off topic, this is the page for THE WEBSITE. But, on the subject, I hate Mellow Mushroom's pizza. Too much sauce is all. --thatkidsam 17:26, 15 May 2005 (UTC)
I ate at the one in Gainesville. Decent pizza, but definitely NOT the best *coughpapajohnsisthebestcoughcough*. Cheatachu72 20:51, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)
NU! You're wrong! Mykonos is the best! Too bad there's only 2 locations in all of the world... --אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay)

Sorry guys, I gotcha all beat! I worked at Village Pizza for a few months and the pizza there was better than Papa Johns. It locally based here in Houston, Texas. We had a couple of New Yorkers come in and they said it reminded them of the pizza back home! Oh compliment of all compliments... TaranchulaVamp15 12:47, 9 Jan 2006 (CST)

As long as we're arguing about the best pizza, I'd say the one and only Jason's in Fuquay-Varina, NC has all those beat.--Jnelson09 20:10, 6 March 2006 (UTC)

Little Caesar's pizza is the best. That commercial is hilarious! PizzaPizza! Checkmate.-LordQuackingstick 22:38, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

My brother and I are both avid fans of Homestarrunner AND former employees of the Mellow Mushroom corporation (Hilton Head Island, SC franchise). This is hands down the best pizza in the country. The first time you eat there, the dough is so rich that two slices will fill you. The 'throwers' in the kitchen work extremely hard with limited resources, and if you ask them nicely, they'll be extremely happy to show off their pizza making skills with artistic flair. Great pains are made to ensure literally the highest quality ingredients go into each pie. Each one is finished with drawn butter on the crust sprinkled with parmesan cheese. In addition to this, they also serve pretzels, which are actually small pizza doughs cut into 3rds, spun around into the familiar knot, and parbaked to complete upon request, sandwitches, which for the life of me, are stacked so high and thick (and left open face) that I cant comprehend how the customers will consume them without a knife and fork, and various other delights. I highly reccommend the hawaiin pizza and the cosmic karma, and pretzels with all dipping sauces (i recall honey and maranara. honey-mustard is my favorite).

The throwers are generally very laid back college-age guys (at least they all were where I worked), and are all open to new ideas. If you have a chance and a good idea, bring it up! I've seen them use the kitchen's hot sauce to make hot wings in the 'fly' oven (get that pizza on the fly!), weve made garlic knots, all sorts of different calzones, steak-filled pizza dough biscuits, etc. Don't let the menu stop you either, the weirdest requests always come in when were shutting down half the ovens and half the toppings, like anchoves with basil-oil sauce topped with spinach and provalone in a calzone.

They work so hard and fast, that at the end of the night, everyone's arms and everything below the waist are covered in cornmeal, including a quarter inch of it on the floor. It was good to eat there, GREAT to work there, especially when the party would continue on until dawn, with halo on two xboxes and TVs (not in the restaurant, down the street at the hovel).

Man, I miss that summer.


Even though this is still off topic, I ate at the Mellow Mushroom while staying in Charlottesville, VA. It was the closest pizza to the Marriot, where my family and I were staying. I'm going to say second-best. Really, really, good, but Avalanche Pizza is the best pizza in the USA. They won an award. They are, at the very least, the best pizza in Athens, OH for seven years in a row. And they're right next to Papa John's. - Isaac Smith (T · C)

[edit] Update

I could have sworn that the "Dude Skate Game" was made after I first reached that site. It's not much of a game, anyway

number 1: sign your posts.
number 2: mellow mushroom is probably the dumbest site I've ever seen.

Number 3: If you're telling someone to sign their posts, the least you could do is register so that you could use a normal signature like mine. --—Darklinkskywalker|Talk_|i did this stuff_ 00:30, 1 Sep 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Weirded OUT!

That Mel-mushroom dude sounds like Bubs. Coinkidink? I think so. I just felt somebody had to say it.Ookelaylay 19:39, 6 Jul 2005 (UTC)

He sounds more like Gunhaver-- 00:16, 6 April 2007 (UTC)

You're both right. He sounds like a cross between Mr. Concession Stand and the voice of Mr. Stuntman. Roll around the menu items and you'll see what I mean. --ISlayedTheKerrek 03:05, 20 August 2007 (UTC)

I think the wizard sounds kinda like a gravally Strong Bad voice Orange Star - T - C

[edit] Not a stub

This article is not a stub. It contains all the necessary information it should; namely, it is an overview of the MM site with a link to it. This wiki is about H*R; more-detailed info on MM does not belong here. — It's dot com 17:56, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Yet we have more complete pages for the other side projects... --TROGGA! 18:02, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)
What are you talking about? I looked at those other pages, and they are about the same in content and length as this one. (Thorax Corp's is a little longer, but it is more closely tied to Homestar Runner. It is still, however, on just one page on the wiki.) What more information do you think someone will add by having a {{stub}} tag? — It's dot com 18:07, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Hmm, you must have been right this whole time; according to Wikipedia, "A stub is an article which is clearly too short, but not so short as to be useless. In general, it must be long enough to at least define the article's title. This usually means 3 to 10 short sentences. Note that a longer article may be a stub if the topic is complex enough; conversely, a short article on a topic which has a very narrow scope may not be a stub." But I still don't see anything wrong with more-detailed info on MM. --TROGGA! 16:28, 22 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] The Sun Almost Rises

Since you had a big debate on whether or not to put in individual articles, what about the toon? Can I make that or not?-^Gordon—584^ my talk

I think you could probably make a note of the toon on the MM page, but a separate page and/or transcript for the toon is completely unnecessary! -- tomstiff 20:53, 2 Aug 2005 (UTC)

What makes it "completely unnecessary?" --TROGGA! 21:10, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Cast your eyes to the upper left hand corner of this page. -- tomstiff 21:25, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Couldn't we just put the transcript on the mellow mushroom page? I can make it. — talk Bubsty edits 20:45, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)
I repeat, can I put the transcript on this page? (Please answer!) — talk Bubsty edits 23:36, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
I wouldn't mind, but I think some people oppose the idea. - Joshua 23:51, 7 December 2005 (UTC)
If no one objects in the next 3 days, I'll put it on. — talk Bubsty edits 01:14, 9 December 2005 (UTC)
Anyone objecting? — talk Bubsty edits 02:45, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
1 day left... — talk Bubsty edits 16:51, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
I'm against it, but be bold as we say around here. Make it and then we decide. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 17:02, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
That's not a good strategy. No one wants to work hard on something that could be deleted as soon as he's done. - Joshua 17:06, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
Whatever. I'll make it, and you guys get to decide what happens to it. — talk Bubsty edits 17:12, 10 December 2005 (UTC)
MADE'D! Feel free to do what ever you want with it. — talk Bubsty edits 23:21, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

Someone who wants the article to stay, could you please finish it for me?

Plus Bubsty made it first, but it got taken off of here. So you working hard on it, isn't much of a reason. Since you could of just looked through the history of the page.--H*bad 14:06, 28 May 2006 (UTC)

Why not make it, this is the only place we could make a transcript for The Sun Almost Rises. If you guys are gunna keep saying "This is the Homestar Runner Wiki, therefore we will not make a transcript"..... then why did we make articles for the thorax corporation, and Mellow Mushroom? They are both made by TBC therfore me shall make a transcript. - The Pony man 02:08, 22 April 2008 (UTC)

[edit] Why?

Can I ask why we have this page? this is the Homestar Runner wiki, not the Mellow mushroom wiki. Rogue Leader / (my talk)

I couldn't agree more. What is already here is plenty! -- tomstiff 20:51, 2 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Yet this wiki isn't paper. --TROGGA! 21:21, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

We have all experianced a 509 error. I just think that it isn't related to Homestar Runner, and should be shortened. Rogue Leader / (my talk)
There's a big difference between us and Wikipedia. Wikipedia purports to cover basically anything in existence. We are a Homestar Runner Wiki. Mellow Mushroom is not Homestar Runner, it's just a side project, and the evidence is such that TBC haven't actually had much to do with it. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 21:27, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Couldn't have said it better myself! If you read this page completely, the same point has been made numerous times: MM ain't HSR. -- tomstiff 21:32, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Well duh, it's a restaurant. {rimshot} But the website, in my opinion, is TBC's Wings. --TROGGA! 22:06, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)

So ... Mellow Mushroom is to Homestar Runner as Wings is to The Beatles. Dunno if I can buy off on that one! -- tomstiff 22:22, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Does that mean that "The Sun Almost Rises" is TBC's "Band On The Run"? Or "Live and Let Die"? -- tomstiff 22:24, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Rouge Leader, deleting one article on the Wiki will not change anything in regards to our bandwidth. Fear of exceeding our bandwidth allotment should never be taken into consideration when determining an article's merit. -- Tom 22:27, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I didn't mean delete. I meant taking out the chracters section and the pages section. I think that this page is jst giving to much attention to a side project. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 22:32, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
Taking out the characters section and pages section still won't do anything. Deleting a page, or a section of a page, will not help the bandwith issue.
By what you guys are saying, we should also delete the Thoraxcorp article , because it has nothing to do with Homestar Runner. Mellow Mushroom involves TBC. That's why we have it here. I don't see why we shouldn't. —FireBird|Talk 23:10, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I think this article should stay as it is, and not be deleted. I was just saying that we don't need to expand it into multiple articles, as Trogga suggested. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 23:36, 11 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I agree. -- Tom 00:16, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
I still think that we do not need a characters section and a pages section. Bandwith aside, I believe that we do not need a section explaning characters and another about the pages. This article should stay, but I think that those to articles should go. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 00:28, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)
So you have a problem with the formatting of the article? What do you suggest, we combine the two sections? I think it makes sense to have them separate. -- Tom 01:05, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC).
No, I just think that those sections are useless, and I wouldn't care to ee them go. But I can live with them being there. I think that we should stop arguing about it. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 01:07, 12 Aug 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Three reasons why there's nothing wrong with more-detailed info on MM

  1. What I mean by "this wiki isn't paper" is that we cover everything H*R related; from A, Anonymous to W, Wood-davers. Why not make a great article on Dress Up Mel? MM may not be H*R, but why delete presumable hard work?
  2. Let's say someone searched for a quote from "The Sun Almost Rises," assuming it's H*R. Wouldn't it help to transcribe "The Sun Almost Rises?"
  3. Not right now; I've got a headache. (trogga)
Let this go. Let this go already. You've said it yourself... that stuff is not H*R. We don't need detailed pages on it. No one is going to search for "The Sun Almost Rises" quotes. Nobody else wants these pages transcribed. If you want to transcribe them and keep them on your computer, no one can stop you, but they don't belong here. — It's dot com 17:56, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

But where else can we put more detailed MM info? The Mellow Mushroom Wiki? Look, all I'm saying is individual MM articles on a H*R wiki isn't going kill anyone. But if you still disagree with me, that's fine, but why stop debating? (trogga)

I am going to type this slowly: There. Is. No. Need. For. Separate. Articles. Debate should stop because you. Are. The. Only. One. Keeping. It. Going. Of all the users who have posted on this talk page, you are the only one who wants separate articles (except for maybe one other person, but he only posted once). Everyone else has stated unequivocally that one page for Mellow Mushroom is more than plenty. This discussion has been going on for nearly nine months now. Enough is enough. — It's dot com 20:59, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Well, you've inspired me to take a break. Before I go, I am going to type this slowly: There. Is. Need. For. Separate. Articles. What's the point of. One. Page. When. You. Can. Have. More. Sorry for being so anal. (trogga)

I'm firmly in the "there-is-no-need-for-multi-pages" camp. But, if you're so keen on adding more MM cr@p ... make it so! It's a free Wiki. Transcribe "The Sun Almost Rises" and post it. -- tomstiff 21:38, 24 Aug 2005 (UTC)
But don't be surprised if doing so just gets us right back here. — It's dot com 04:55, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)
We do not need transcripts of Mellow Mushroom toons. We do not need multiple articles. Trogga, if you are interested, you can create your own wiki for free at WikiCities about Mellow Mushroom that you would have complete control over. -- Tom 12:18, 25 Aug 2005 (UTC)

I don't think MM deserves its own wiki; that's why I prefer multiple articles over a simple summary. But recently I've decided one article is A-OK. At least we acknowledge the fact that it exists. (trogga)

Hey Trogga, there's always Wikipedia, y'know. Why don't you go into detail about Mellow Mushroom there? Then we could link to it from here. - Joshua
And somehow, even after all the discussion above, months later the transcript got made. And now it's its own page. Can I revive the debate here? My vote: keep a Mellow Mushroom page on this wiki to acknowledge its existence, but for further detail, start a MMWiki. —AbdiViklas 06:01, 16 January 2006 (UTC)

I don't think I agree with anyone. We don't need 20 articles. We don't even need 10. All we need is 5: Mellow Mushroom Toons, Mellow Mushroom Games, Mellow Mushroom Main Pages, and Mellow Mushroom Characters, plus this page. Beep 16:32, 20 February 2006 (UTC)

[edit] Drugged

I've been wondering if I can add information about the intentional drug references to 'shrooms and stoning in the Mellow Mushroom site, or if it's not allowed to post that type of content.

Like what, for example? And how do you know it's intentional? — It's dot com 23:40, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I think everyone can already tell that theres a referance to drugs on that site. lets just leave it at that. — talk Bubsty edits 20:47, 1 Oct 2005 (UTC)
There is? Where? --אוקאלייליי (Ookelaylay) (PS- I'm not foolin', where?)
I dont know much about the drug, but its like... something that has to do with mushrooms, and... aw crap I cant remember anything about it. — talk Bubsty edits 00:38, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

I know there is a drugs called shrooms, that's about it. The only other thing is the main page has "magic" and rainbow flashing colors. SaltyTalk! 01:57, 13 December 2005 (UTC)

You know, when i first learned about this site, i actually thought that it was some sort of Drug or Stoner Suply Store, and also, it kind of looks like what you would see on an Acid trip. --[[User:Choc-O-Lardiac Arrest|-COLA]] 09:08, 5 March 2006 (UTC)

It's a reference to the drug mushrooms ('shrooms). It is a psychadelic drug and causes increased awareness and hallucinations (such as swimming colours). Republic of Stan Blah.
Oh, for the love of crap, I'm sick of these people trying to make everything look bad. Would you want to go to a pizza restaurant called the Mellow Pepperoni? Not as catchy, is it? Get the crap over it.--Jnelson09 21:43, 21 May 2006 (UTC)

Having Munchies on the menu is obviously an intentional drug reference. I tampered with the DNA EVIDENCE! 21:04, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

Oh, so whenever anything has anthropomorphic mushrooms, it simply MUST be a reference to Magic Mushrooms then? And by the same flawless logic, the song "Puff the Magic Dragon" is about marijuana? Get a grip. This is a freaking mushroom-themed pizza restaurant chain in Georgia, USA. If there really were intentional drug references, they'd all be burnt to the ground by angry mobs within 30 minutes. – The Chort 17:27, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Deletion

This page should be deleted, since it is a non-Homestar-related side-project. See also Talk:The_Brothers_Chaps#Heimdalsgate_Like_a_Promethean_Curse and Talk:The Brothers Chaps' Side ProjectsLoafing 22:58, 25 January 2007 (UTC)

I agree. The HSR-related content of this page is covered by the small blurb on The Brothers Chaps' Side Projects, with the exception of the reference to Melonade. This last tidbit is very minor and seemed awkward when I tried to add it to the blurb. So, since the blurb on the other page is sufficient, I agree that this article should be deleted (that is, changed to a redirect to the other page). Trey56 23:37, 25 January 2007 (UTC)
The The Brothers Chaps' Side Projects page should get the link to the website. Then del taco. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 00:35, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, we'd just replace the link to this page with the link to the website if/when this page is deleted. Trey56 00:38, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
If this page is always just going to say "this is a site made by TBC", then I say delete. --Trogga 14:29, 26 January 2007 (UTC)
Delort, since it's unrelated to H*R.--H-ko 21:54, 1 February 2007 (UTC)
Keep (or at the very least redirect), I don't know why there is so much hatred over this page. Sure it's not on the H*R web page, sure it's no more than advertising; sure it's addiition/removal of its toon transcript has caused much heated debate, sure we want to keep this as a strictly H*R-only wiki, sure I am the only one fighting for this so far, (sure I'm not making much of a point), but we must remember that this was one of TBC's earlier non-H*R works, and even if it's a separate too, the toon bears waay too many similarities to TBC characters, making it an interesting stage in TCB/H*R history (I'm sure back then many ppl wondered if there'd be more H*R spinoffs). At the very least, the paltry amount of information on the page does not do it justice. Sure we don't want this to become a TBC-only super-mega site , but at the expense of rare information (such as who sounds like who) you won't find anywhere else (all there is, is a mention of who they sounded like)? (And in other material, for example, the Knowledge Hat and Respek Knuckles, had lyrics in their pages, at the very least the new page should link to lyrics outside the wiki). Other pages almost got deleted as well and were kept simply because they got linked from H*R. Was this ever the case for this page? Regardless, I still think this "black sheep" page of the wiki hasn't been treated with the respect it deserves. Ok I'm rambling. --Stux 14:34, 2 February 2007 (UTC)
Keep it, you have articles about TBC's friends on the wiki, yet they arent getting deleted. Why do the same for something of the same relation? -Jmoney(to lazy too sign in) — (Talk | contribs) 21:59, 9 February 2007 (left unsigned)
Delete -Mycroft Holmes
There's no "hatred" here, and of course a deletion of this article would effectivley be a redirect. We also don't just have articles about TBCs' friends. We have articles about people who are actually associated with the Homestar Runner project. Loafing 22:03, 9 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah, I should've been a little less harsh in my language. Instead of "hatred" something like "overall lack of love", or "intense indifferential indifference" over the article. Anyway, I just felt it's not getting the love and attention it deserves. Something like that. And I figured it would be redirected, but I wanted to be absolutely sure. I'm still procrastinating over work I must do. Other than sleep. --Stux 05:00, 15 February 2007 (UTC)

I'm basicly just voting to delete for the same reasons as everyone else. Drippingyellowmadness CoolS.png talk 02:06, 13 February 2007 (UTC)

Keep. It was created by TBC and therefore is worthy of mention. Retromaniac 22:25, 14 February 2007 (UTC)
It's made by TBC, so I don't see what's so enragenning...ness about it. Guardez Keep.
The Brothers Chaps' Side Projects is where this should belong. Delort. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 21:06, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Ditto to Yellowdart. Deleting Thyme. -Brightstar Shiner 21:13, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
No way! Keep says I. kai lyn 21:16, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
This is a wiki about Homestar Runner. Any other article that is not should be merged with the "Side Projects" page. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 22:04, 18 February 2007 (UTC)
Yeah. That too. Why do you want to keep it, kai lyn? -Brightstar Shiner 15:41, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Keep. The information on this article has been here long enough that it should not be deleted. Moving the info to the side projects page would just clutter the page. Furthermore, this page is important with regard to Homestar Runner. I count at least a half-dozen mentions of H*R ideas and references on the page. It should stay. — It's dot com 16:07, 19 February 2007 (UTC)

Keep, for the same reasons as dot com. Dr. Clash 16:58, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
Dot Com said it all for me, Brightstar. I also like all the arguments Stux brought up above. I just feel that, though this is a wiki of H*R info, it doesn't have to be so strick that anything else is considered an annoyance and must be booted ASAP. First time I read through this page was a fun time for me. It was cool to see what else the Brothers Chaps are up to, but also what H*R things they've encompassed within such side projects. All the fun facts on this page, like Dot Com already stated, wouldn't fit well on the side projects page. Once again, keeeeeep says I. kai lyn 17:40, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
I think that this should be kept because it is one of TBC's only side projects that has the same distinct style as homestarrunner. It also sort of helps document the history of by showing TBC's earlier, non-homestarrunner work. - link_icon.gifThe Joe(Talk) 17:44, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
It looks like the discussion is about evenly split, in which case I think it'd be better to err on the side of keeping the info rather than deleting it. Really, the best argument we proponents of deletion have is consistency with the policy of not giving pages to any of the other of TBC's HSR-unrelated side projects. But since many of the advocates of this page feel very strongly about it (and they have legitimate arguments), I move that we remove the deletion tags and keep it around as the exception to the rule.

If it really makes everyone happy, I don't mind this page. Okay... no deletion. --TheYellowDart(t/c) 18:07, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
In continuation of my apparently growing trend of copying everything Yellowdart does, this page seems fine to me now. I see that Kai lyn, Dot Com, and others have good arguments and even though I think it might at least have a link from Side Projects (if it doesn't already), you guys have once again convinced me that yet another page should be saved. This one is fine and it can stay by my count. -Brightstar Shiner 22:59, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Comment. Whether the entire page should be kept, with all the current detail, I don't know, but I will say that it was useful for me. I was told about the Mellow Mushroom restaurant, and when I googled it, I found the website, which at first appeared to be a surprisingly blatant rip-off of the Homestar Runner site. But this page told me that it was made by the Brothers Chaps. 19:49, 21 March 2007 (UTC)

Keep, but don't over do it. As this is made by the same people as H*R it should be mentioned, but but don't do too much on it. Just as is it seems enough to get the point across, anymore would be over doing it. MJN SEIFER 19:31, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

You do know that this is about 7 months old and has already been decided? User talk:Sam the Man Sam the Man 19:50, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Well there is no sign to say that it was decided, so I wouldn't know. MJN SEIFER 15:04, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

There's no sign saying that it's still under discussion, hence it's been decided. — Defender1031*Talk 15:07, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Sweet lady Irony!

Am I the only one who finds it odd that H*R prides itself on being commercial-free, but TBC's other side project, which is very similar to H*R is one giant commercial? anyone? -Pfamily Pfargtl

I think what The Brothers Chaps are mainly opposed to is forcing viewers of to navigate advertisements. Consulting with a different company to help them make a completely separate website is a little different. Also, they did the Mellow Mushroom stuff way back in 2001.

Isn't this a forum style post anyway? — Defender1031*Talk 18:33, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Melodymarzimorph or Mellow_Mushroom_Melody?

i think That the picture on the "Pages" menu should be MelodyMarziMorph.png. If you agree, it will look like this:

The Evolution of Marzipan
A funny idea, but no. The website for Mellow Mushroom predates highschool by FIVE YEARS. Your "evolution" is in the wrong order, and Melody has nothing to do with the Homestar Runner universe. There's no real need to include an image comparing the two characters anyway. – The Chort 14:03, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

[edit] New Site Look

Should I or somebody else change this page to fit the site's new look Super!SantanaDuper! 20:36, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Actually, I think we should just switch everything to past-tense, as the site no longer seems to be designed by TBC (and therefore out of the scope of our interest/project). A small mention of the redesign, perhaps, but that's about all. --DorianGray 21:18, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
Lotsa links need to be fixed, also. OptimisticFool 21:35, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Mellow Mushroom sighting

Instapundit has a picture of a cute girl wearing a Mellow Mushroom t-shirt on his blog today [1]

[edit] Anyone archive this?

Wow. I just came by and found out the archive was taken down. Please, tell me someone else has archived the site besides the Internet Archive. If so, how about we mirror it here? Soiled Bargains (talk|ctrb) 02:12, 25 August 2009 (UTC)

[edit] Skepticism 2013

I have never seen any actual proof in interviews with the Brothers Chaps or Missy Palmer that they ever did anything for Mellow Mushroom. I believe that Mellow Mushroom created this site as a blatant rip-off of Homestar Runner, and then either created a false rumor that TBC was responsible for it in order to raise publicity for their business, or the false rumor simply spread through word-of-mouth (the same way that Homestar Runner achieved popularity). If TBC had made the Mellow Mushroom animations, they would have made them funnier. A TBC side project this is not. --JohnnyLurg 02:40, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

Really? A quick google search brings up page after page after page about how they did it. (That last one IS an interview.) Your own lack of ability to do a quick google search and assurance that "if TBC had done it, it'd be funnier" notwithstanding, this is, most certainly, a TBC side project. — Defender1031*Talk 13:50, 12 February 2013 (UTC)

[edit] Characters

Did TBC design the characters? Because they're still on the site. --Image:Homsariconformysig.gifBroncoTroll 21:47, 19 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Old site now archived on new site

I noticed that the current incarnation of the Mellow Mushroom website has a 'DO NOT PUSH' button which takes you through a timewarp (literally!) to the Brother Chaps' website.

Their description: "Welcome to our first site, built by The Brothers Chaps (of Homestar Runner fame) in 2001. Please enable Flash to “surf the web”."

Not sure how to incorporate this into the wiki article as it can't be directly linked to (and might disappear when the site gets redesigned again), but thought it was worth pointing out here at least. --Everybody! Everybody! 17:02, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Yep, it's a modal screen that appears on top of the index page. My first thought is, there might be a way to directly link to it that is unlisted (haven't checked yet). Ideally they should have that, since that's just best practice especially when it's a static page/website like mostly is. Anyway, as this is not the first time they've provided an archive of the old site if the user looks hard enough, and since they previously removed it after a while, I would keep the link up anyway. -- ■■   PURPLE  WRENCH   ■■ 23:24, 4 May 2018 (UTC)

[edit] Copyright

Okay, I'm sorry for my behaviour before in removing the transcript without consensus as to whether it belongs. I am, however, concerned that the transcript may be a violation of copyright - is the toon copyrighted to TBC or MM? RickTommy (edits) 15:25, 10 August 2020 (UTC)
