B/W B-est of B-sides!

YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XecNSd_lOYs

Website: http://homestarrunner.com/recordstoreday.html

I found this toon through the reddit. The YouTube thumbnail for this toon was an actual photo, so I didn't recognize it as an actual toon at first.

Oh yeah, and the sound quality is 128 kbps on the .swf file of this toon, so prepare to hear some amazing sound quality!

I found it through Twitter. And I gotta say, Matt Chapman's pretty good at reprising voices he hasn't used in a while, more specifically Larry and Mary. If he's responsible for the vocals for the latest Sloshy song, he's a flawless and accomplished singer. Bravo!

I just keep defaulting on my la-la-la-la-la loans!

Okay, I'm fairly certain The Bros Chaps are making fun of their own fans here, especially since they didn't put this on their own site. It's probably for them and their girlfriends (wives)... oh well. I don't mind digging it out of the Internet for a good laugh. Senor Cardgage wouldn't have it any other way.

I don't see how they're making fun of their fans or what you mean by "not putting it on their website". in fact, I don't understand your reply at all. :homsar:

Okay, I guess they did put it on their own website. That qas poorly worded. What I meant to say is that both of you didn't discover the toon by actually looking at the site and I thought that was interesting.

That's because someone on Reddit had already found it and posted it on the /r/HomestarRunner subreddit and when mrcontesty saw his post, he decided to post onto the HRWiki Forum for extra discussion for those that are not apart of the Reddit H*R community.

I actually don't think I've discovered an HR toon on the website itself first in a long time. I pretty much always find them first either on the wiki or on the related IRC channels.

I found it through the Wiki rss feed.

I imagine most people don't check the official site regularly anymore because updates are so scarce.

I also think that, rather than making fun of their fans, they're admitting to being self-described "music nerds".

The toon in general reminds me of the independent record store easter egg at the end of SBEmail #53: "comic".

Hey, a bit off topic, but is the IRC still active?

I've been wanting a new song for some time.

Maybe we'll even get a new Limozeen song or Cheat Commandos this year.
