Big news or cruel tease?

First off, how did I not know Matt was on Twitter? *follows*

Second off, well, if the last update is any indication, I look forward to two pretty good sbemails followed by two more years of silence!

He's been working on the Aquabats Supershow as well.  One episode last season had a carnival villain (named Carl) who looked & sounded like Strongbad.

OF COURSE IT WOULD BE TODAY. http://homestarrunner.com

I can't expect this to be a permanent return. I can't expect that.

But man, do I hope that.

The headline's the important thing, but the full podcast is worth a listen: http://www.theverge.com/2014/7/9/5884841/homestar-runner-creator-says-hes-bringing-his-internet-cartoon-back

Well, well, well! Look who's testing the Twitter/YouTube waters!

(I wasn't 100% sure for a while if that twitter feed was official, but Matt's friend and colleague Alex Hirsch endorsed it, so it seems legit!)

Lots of fun extras in this one.

Oh, and if I had to guess the silhouettes for this year.  Here are some guesses I have for some:

Strong Mad - OK, his pony tail gives some clues.  I'm going to say Shazzan, the Genie from the Hanna Barbera cartoons.
https://www.youtube.com/v/fex1b7axXl0
The Cheat - This one is driving me nuts, as his shadow has the most detail.  OK, someone with a ray gun and short spikey hair.  I feel like I should know it.
Marzipan - I think she might be the Mecha-Maid from Spaceballs... except she doesn't have a point crown.  Is there another famous vacuum user?
the KoT looks like he might be in samurai armor.  The cables and wires samurai from Brazil, perhaps?

I'm taking Strong Mad in another direction and saying he's Earthworm Jim.

The Cheat as Spaceman Spiff is way awesome (I also like the addition of Dungeon Master).

Yeah...holy crap is right.  How do you update everything on that site into anything OTHER than Flash?  That's quite the pickle.
Title: Re: The Homestar/Brothers Chaps thread

Is this a real thing? Is Flash losing its Adobe support or something?
Title: Re: The Homestar/Brothers Chaps thread
Post by: SJP on August 07, 2015, 08:24:59 AM
There was a story not too long ago where Flash had yet another security breach.  After that happened, all hell broke loose and the top people of Facebook, Firefox (well, sort of...they disabled it by default until the user updated Flash) and a bunch of other places (can't remember them all) said, "It's time that Flash must go!  For the good of the people!"  So, yes, a bunch of top drawer executives said Flash must go, so it must go.  Because HTML5 is absolutely perfect now and will never, ever have security vulnerabilities at any time.  Nevermind that a lot of places like Homestar Runner and Newgrounds now have to very quickly do a LOT of work before their content is rendered unusable on browsers.

I really don't have any issues with Flash one way or the other, but it sounds a little harsh to tell a company that their long-standing and somewhat still popular medium is a blight on the community and must be destroyed, even if it has issues.  And if it means harming Homestar Runner and its years of interactive tomfoolery, I'm more than a little perturbed at the blanket attack.

I think everyone here will especially appreciate Homestar's costume this year.

Yeah, this was a pretty good one.  Always a treat to see a new Homestar cartoon.
Title: Re: The Homestar/Brothers Chaps thread

Every time I see a new Homestar Runner, it reminds me of being in college, having a break between classes, and spending a couple of minutes have a nice, quiet chuckle at the latest cartoon.

I know the guys are busy with other projects, but it's amazing how big a smile these cartoons can put on your face.  I wish they had the time to bring it back in full force, but even these little treats are always welcome.
