I found it ironic that in the Halloween 2009 thread, someone posted their idea for a Halloween toon involving Bubs doing a science project in his Concession Stand at night, and the picture on the TV when you hover over the 2009 Halloween Toon on the main menu on the website shows Bubs in his concession stand at night, holding a container of something...

I hate to be pedantic, but that's actually not irony.

You're right; a different term would probably work better. However, a definition of "Ironic" is "coincidental; unexpected", and I believe my reply referred to an event that was that.

I just saw a shampoo commercial. One hairstyle mentioned was "Fluffy Puffy" :eek: Sound similar to anything?

I emailed the Brothers Chaps a week before SBCG4AP came out about the layout of Strong Bad's house. (I still think it's on The Cliff with 2 floor levels, because the laundry room is supposed to be in the garage).

I just remembered an H*R coincidence that was weird and scary. One time, a friend and I were heading into town for a weekend and for whatever reason, I kept singing Homestar's variation on the "Neverending Story" song from the email "the paper": the one that goes "The blood is rushing to my head, blacking out, blacking out, blacking out!"

Just before we reached our destination on the metro, my friend fainted of dehydration. O_O

(She was OK after a bit.)

I went to the Kitkorp archive (which has a random Quote of the Week every time you click the main page button), and the first quote I got was "That's bupkis!"

I had 2 with the main pages yesterday.

1- I was waiting for the main page to load and I thought. "If this the PBTC one I am going to KILL THEM and FRY THEIR BRAINS." It was the PBTC one. I decided not to kill them or fry their brains.

2- I really didn't want to cause a distraction for anyone else with the sound, so I was like "don't worry, it's on mute" as I pushed the main page button. It wasn't on mute, but it turned out to be the 1936 main page.

Well, lets see...
I got bored so I got a Homestar-related account on Neopets, one of the icons says Burninate.

Just now, I tried to re-download all the Sbemail Podcasts my iPod had before an accidental reset, but after I added them all, I did something stupid that rendered the animations unplayable. Afterward, I deleted the Podcasts and returned my iPod to the speakers, and the first song the shuffle played was titled "So Close"!

Shortly after I finished subtitling "No Hands on Deck!" in French, a TV show came on where people were building a deck.

Had one just now. Like right just now! I was thinking of an idea for a new main page, and thought "Sweet Cuppin' Cakes was done before", so I go to the website and get the Sweet Cuppin' Cakes main page!

Today marked the first time since February or March that I clicked "Come On In" instead of "Main", and what Main Page greets me? Main Page 1!

How is that a coincidence? Both methods lead to a random main page. Just wondering.

Yeah, it's not very significant in retrospect.

'Kay, I got one.

I am actually working on a fan comic series where the Homestarrunner gang all get turned into humans (won't go into the plot right now).

Anyway, Homestar has robot arms in the comic, and after working on this thing for months they put the Xeriously Forxe toon on the website... and Homestar has robot arms...

Actually, Strongmad and the King of Town were similar to my designs as well... I even had the idea to keep Homsar the same :eek: :-D ... and all this was thought up months before the toon was even posted!

Edit: I'm still working on the fan comic. I got a good photo editing program, so it will look more like a comic instead of an amateur piece of crap hopefully... pages will be on my DA soon.

^ Now THAT's impressive.

One Homestar coincidence happened years back when the "Everybody to the Limit" song first came out and I remember Strong Bad saying "You win a gold star" to Strong Mad low and behold a week later someone in my class was impressed with a project and announced "You win a gold star".

Also I had so many H*R related dreams as of late showing them update and whatnot and then the new toon came.

When I was at work today, I predicted that For Kids would be the next toon to be subtitled into Spanish, and when I got home and checked Recent Changes, sure enough, it was.

Well, on Sunday I went to town, and I took the bus there and back.
Anyway, on the way back, in the bus station, I had to wait in Terminal G! :O ( :homsar: "I'm not gonna lie to you, that's a healthy piece of real estate!")


And yesterday morning, there was a noise outside that sounded like :homsar: walking.

There's an app for iPod Touch and iPhone called "TonePad". I made Homestar with it on the 13th of this month, and A Decemberween Mackerel was released the day after.

A bunch of people and me were working on a Homestar Runner fan toon. The project went dead for a few months, so I started to make a video saying we need to get this show back on the road...

One day after, I made a post on the wiki forums saying how we need to be patient with the Bros. Chaps, and not to give up on them.

The day after that (I think), THE DECEMBERWEEN CARTOON WAS RELEASED! :O :eekdance: :-D


Now I gotta go finish that video. :mrgreen:

My mom wanted to have one of the SB e-mails on her blog. She wanted the one where Strong Bad is talking about the guy's mom showing pictures of the guy when he was a baby to his girlfriend, but we had no idea which one it was. Well, two days ago, when I was just doing random cartoons, I came across it. A little while later, I realized there was a new toon. I don't know if that counts, but it was still freaky/exciting!

Um, which one? I don't remember one like that, and I've watched every single one at least once!

So, I visited the website for the first time in months. So at the Welcome page, I thought, "Wow, haven't been here in a long time." So I click "Come on in" and I'm taken to the Old-Timey Page.

So I was listening to "Pink Pants" and the first topic in the Characters section of the HRWiki Forum was this.

EDIT: (sorta HR related) I have two versions of Experimental Film on my playlist: the original, and a fan remix. These are nowhere near each other alphabetically. My playlist is on shuffle and the remix plays. The next song that plays is the original.

After about an hour of playing around with my Casio MT-65, I went on Homestarrunner.com and clicked random. It lead me to "Lookin at a Thing in a Bag", which uses a demo beat in the soundtrack that's on my Casio. Good enough?

This just happened: I was e-mailing TBC, and thinking about the part in the sbemail "cheat talk", where Strong Bad says, "The Cheat, some town can't understand you." after the e-mail was sent, I clicked on "rando" and it brought me to "cheat talk"!
p.s. here's a link:
