[edit] Email TBC?

Has anyone ever e-mailed the Brothers Chaps and asked them about Mission Control? If so, did they respond? --Ian911299

Tried, no reply. single deuce 23:59, 5 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] FLANSBURGH and LINNELL: Each day...

we die a little more? E.L. Cool 14:51, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

What? Maybe... but that's what they were saying. --acekirby13|My Talk 14:54, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I helped transcribe it, and I'm sure it's not eavh day,e xcpet for mayeb the first time they say it. It sounds like Each nit, but I left each dya there until we figure out what it is. Ju Ju Master

I don't hear each "each day". I heard a long "E" and a "K" at the end. I thought it was "peacenik" the first couple of times I heard it, but these old ears have seen better days. -- tomstiff 15:11, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I think it sounds more like "He's Nick," but that doesn't make much sense. I'm definitely not hearing the "each day" thing though. small_logo.pngUsername-talk 16:11, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You're not alone. "He's Nick" is exactly what I heard too, before I even looked here. -Miss Free Country USA

I dunno. Kinda sounds like "He said" to me. Ppk01 17:16, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I agree with tomstiff, it sounds like peacenik. - EMJS

That's what I thought, too. I've listened to it a few times and I'm fairly certain it's not "each day." — InterruptorJones 18:56, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)
I also agree it sounds like "peacenik". —FireBird|Talk 12:34, 10 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Well, if it's not "each day", then what is it? "He's Nick" and "peacenik" don't make any sense at all. "He said" is the closest thing that I've heard. --acekirby13|My Talk 19:40, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

That last phoneme sure sounds more like "IK" than "ED". -- 19:56, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

What I'm saying is that "He's Nick" and "Peacenik" don't make any sense. --acekirby13|My Talk 20:02, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

It sounds more like "nit" than "nick". It kinda sounds like nick, but I hear nit more. I say there monstrosity; do you know the rhymes? Ju Ju Master

Believe it or not, I emailed TBC seeking an answer. And, NO, I didn't mention the wiki at all. Hopefully they can help out. --acekirby13|My Talk 20:17, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Count me in as another vote for "peacenik". Multiple really loud viewings have confirmed it for me. And as for it "not making sense", it's TMBG and TBC, it's most likely not supposed to make sense. Clichemoth

Personally, I think it's "Deep Space", it just fits in more beterer with the theme of the song. "deep space, mission control" I dunno. 00:55, 9 Jul 2005 (UTC)

You guys, I think they are saying "Beatnik" like a person who would read poetry at an open mike night.... After listening again... it seems they don't say it every time, but they definitely say it... -Aegd

It sounded like "He's dead", but that makes a lot less sence and it would not be something like them, either way, I'm pretty sure it ended with a "D". Me logged out

I think it is "He said"--The Tire 19:46, 10 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I think it sounds a bit like "The Stick". Ha-- I don't know.

I heard, "He said." Somebody should start a votey thing for it... Or email somebody and ask. I don't know. -Polly 05:14, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC)

My vote is for "He's Dead" thats what i heard before i read any of this. - JamesDean

My best guess is "peacenik," even though it doesn't make any sense. There's definitely an "s" in the middle and a "t" or "k" at the end. - AS, 7/12/05

I always thought that they weren't even words, just la-la's na-na's, and doot-dos'. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 17:29, 12 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Actually, This Might Be A Wiki defines the lyrics as "Each Day, Mission Control..." That's good enough for me. —Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.)  Gafaddict Image:Gafaddict sigpic.gif (Talk | Contribs.) 01:59, 14 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Hmmmm. Not much effort has been put into that page. The lyrics aren't even complete! I'd question the authority of that page to definitively define the lyrics. I still say it doesn't sound even closed to "each day." -- tomstiff 17:34, 18 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Well. Just listened to this again after a month. It's certainly *NOT* "each day". In fact, I beginning to think that they sing "Peacenik" first, followed by "Beatnik". -- tomstiff 19:24, 19 Aug 2005 (UTC)

Ok guys, it sounds to me like "Each Day." Dunno what yu guys think, but TMBG's wiki says "Each Day," and it sure does sound like that to me. --MrsCommanderson 19:26, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)

Not sure why the entry from the TMBG's Wiki should been given any greater weight. Not much work has been done: the lyrics aren't even complete. And they're depending on the same source material we are: the puppet jam itself. -- tomstiff 19:36, 2 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I has the solution! It's not "each day" or "peacenik," it's HOUSTON, which is of course the location of Mission Control. Listen again, see if you agree. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 21:39, 15 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Ooooh. *That* would be cool. I'll check it out now! -- tomstiff 22:07, 15 Sep 2005 (UTC)

We may never truly know what they are actually saying, but after listening to it over and over and over again, they are definitely NOT saying 'peacenik' or 'beatnik'. I have changed them to what I believe they are saying, which is he said. I know that they DEFINITELY say 'he said' the third time (just before Homestar says 'Open Mic Night'), and if you listen to it with an open mind I hope you will agree. Thank you for your time. Ppk01 12:07, 8 Oct 2005 (UTC)

So, I know this is really late to be opining, but: H*L agrees with H*C. I've always heard it as "Houston" and likewise connected it with the actual city where Mission Control is. Heimstern Läufer 08:08, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Listening to the clearer audio on the DVD, I can tell you that it is nowhere close to "Houston." In fact, I don't even think it's anywhere close to "He said." There's no D sound at the end. There's more of a K sound. "Peacenik" is my best guess. —BazookaJoe 19:14, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

While listening to it on the DVD, I heard a mixture of "He said" and "We said." It sounds definitly like there's some sort of W sound in there. --MrsCommanderson 23:15, 5 January 2006 (UTC)

Everytime I listen I hear "-snik" so my vote is peacenik. I don't hear "He said" at all, not even the third time. --Bandmatt 21:52, 1 February 2006 (UTC)

Im hearing "Beef Tips" :P yummy

[edit] Graphic!

What's up with the second image? It has no correlation to the Puppet Jam itself. Or am I missing something? Ppk01 14:54, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Never mind, alter'd. Ppk01 15:04, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I've changed it to a screenshot I took. Not to worry, I didn't see what the point of it was either. --acekirby13|My Talk 15:04, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Future note: Original image was File:mocr.jpg. Ppk01 15:06, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Wow. I must be really really old! It's a classic picture of MISSION CONTROL during the Apollo era! Has everyone forgotten already? Maybe Gus, Ed and Roger *did* die in vain. -- tomstiff 15:08, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I know what it was (before you said), but I wasn't alive then... Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 15:31, 8 Jul 2005 (UTC)

I'm so happy that we finally get to see Mission Control!!!! Why didn't they release it before? -Gordon 584

[edit] Music genre

What sort of music genre would that style song be labeled under? Justin87 00:16, 11 Jul 2005 (UTC) I'd give it an alternate rock listin'. And please make sure you sign your name at the end of each post. It's easy - just place four ~ marks at the end of your paragraph. Thank you for your time. Ppk01 06:55, 10 Jul 2005 (UTC)

[edit] Beller in Transcript

I have a serious problem with the transcript. I do not believe that the two Johns are talking to the drummer. It is clear that they are looking at someone who is just beyond the Homestar Puppet, and that is none other than Matt Chapman. I am also pretty sure that Linnel is the one that first says "Bring back the mission control." -- Marq Ed.

In the DVD version, there are a few lines of uncut dialogue after Homeslice says "I left it on the bus. ...Guys?" It was cut from the website because Homestar withdraws below the music stand and Matt's hair can be seen dipping into the shot. I'll transcribe it with no help from the existing one:
FLANSBURGH: I like the Mission Control thing.
LINNEL: Yeah. {laughs}
FLANSBURGH: Let's do it with drums, too. Let's do it— We'll do a second one with drums.
LINNEL: The drums.
FLANSBURGH: Here we go. Here we go.
LINNEL: {Slurs speech} ...Yeah, yeah, bring the Mission Control back. That was strong.
FLANSBURGH: Fall back to Mission Control.
{Offscreen voice is present}
LINNEL: Open Mic Night—
FLANSBURGH: Yeah, both.
LINNEL: Yeah, you know, maybe, both!
FLANSBURGH: Best of both worlds. Here we go.
HOMESTAR: Three, four!
I don't know who they are talking to. Maybe it was Matt. Maybe it was Beller. I wrote Beller out of the transcript on this one. I will edit the website transcript to reflect this one, but I will not add the extra lines to it until we get a solid DVD section. Oh yeah, and I express confidence in who's talking because you can see their mouths moving on the DVD much more easily than on the Flash. —BazookaJoe 19:43, 23 November 2005 (UTC)
