Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman)

MATT: Okay, here's us making the hundredth email. We started with the easiest part, and funnest part, which is doing the Limozeen Easter egg.

MIKE: Yes, you can see Ryan editing that on the far right of the screen, he's editing the uh, Easter egg and layering them, and keying out the green.

MATT: Right, and Mike, what're you doing right now?

MIKE: I am making sandals and socks for Homestar, that never appeared. And a green duck shirt... uh—

MATT: Instead of a yellow duck shirt.

MIKE: Instead of a yellow duck shirt.

MATT: Uh, now I'm recording... this might be recording the Limozeen egg sounds, we were recording that actually. Or, I may be recording an early email... Oh no, that's what it is. It's recording the uh, if you went to sbemail100.html that's what we're doing right now.

MIKE: Oh yeah, that's right. We did that on Sunday night. So this is Sunday night. And, here is Monday morning.

MATT: So, Day two. We actually changed clothes—

MIKE: {simultaneously} I think we're—

MATT: —probably the only three days in a row that we actually changed clothes, and we happened to get it all on film.

MIKE: Um, I think we're re-writing the email here, for the most part.

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: That's what you're doing, anyway.

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: We pretty much started from scratch.

MATT: So now re-recording the email, and recording new sounds for it. And some music for it!

MIKE: Yeah... perhaps the, um...

MATT and MIKE: Email is awesome!

MIKE: Email is weird song.

MATT: Yeah, that's a good one. Um, ah that's— Melissa came by to record her one line—

MIKE: "Ready and set and go now!"

MATT: Yeah. And then, the thing, her Easter egg.

MIKE: Oh yeah, that's right.

MATT: That was it. That was Melissa's involvement. So this music, Mike, tell 'em about the music.

MIKE: Oh, the music was made using a Synthcart, a home-brewed Atari cartridge by our friend Paul Slocum. Um, it's awesome.

MATT: {simultaneously} is making—

MIKE: Oh, there goes our parents and Aunt Jim.

MATT: {cracking up} Aunt— Aunt Jim and Uncle Rosy!

MIKE: {correcting himself, laughing} Uncle Jim! Sorry, Aunt Jim!

MATT: Uncle Jim and Aunt Rosy.

MIKE: Um, see— you can see I'm working on the children's book graphics and stuff there, the egg just popped open, um, with The Cheat inside of it.

MATT: Right. I'm over there doing all the, like, widescreen, beginning and end, all the Easter eggs and stuff. I swear I'm doing stuff over there.

{Mike laughs.}

MIKE: So this is Monday night.

MATT: Day three!

MIKE: Tuesday morning. Um... making some music over there... just the music for the children's book part.

MATT: Yeah. We defin— Yeah that's exactly what it was. I touch my face a lot. I'm drinking a lot of water and I'm touching my face a lot. So this is, this is when we're totally jamming out. Together. This might have been the "{sic}Email is Awesome", actually.

MIKE: Yeah, I don't know what that other part was.

MATT: 'Cause it had bass in it.

MIKE: Oh, maybe it was the Limozeen... No... {mumbling} {pause}

MIKE: Oh, there's the Old-Timey Strong Bad Easter egg I was doing, and the Homestar one where he was wearing that duck shirt.

MATT: You just did the Strong Bad Email Menu. Looks like we're getting close, Mike. You seem to be waiting for me to finish.

MIKE: {simultaneously} Ooh, I made the glass, yup. {Now speaking alone} Here I come up at the front of the screen, I stood up there for, like, three minutes, right there, that was like three minutes.

MATT: And that's the end.

Fun Facts

  • Near the beginning of the video, you can see Mike working on graphics that never made it into the email, which feature normal-style Homestar Runner wearing socks, sandals, and a green duckie shirt.
  • Within the first 5 seconds, Matt puts on his Limozeen wig while at his laptop computer.
