We also might just think it's cool. If you see a way this page can be updated or improved without compromising previous work, feel free to contribute.

[edit] Paul & Storm interview

Just read an interesting interview with Paul and Storm. There's one question about Ballad of The Sneak that makes it worthwhile (about half way down). -- Tom 00:19, 16 October 2007 (UTC)

[edit] Rename suggestion: "Paul and Storm"

Although "The Ballad of The Sneak is credited to "DaVinci's Notebook", only Paul and Storm from the group worked on it as can be seen from retellings, commentaries, etc. It was released on a P&S album not a DVN one. Theme from Stinkoman, although introduced as from "the guys from Da Vinci's Notebook" is similarly only credited to Paul & Storm. I don't see any indication that Muller-Thym or Hsu were involved in either Homestar song; it seems that even before DVN broke up and P&S launched, the Homestar works were a side project that only Sabourin and DiCostanzo worked on. Unlike Y-O-U, where a lot of their H*R output was done before rebranding, I don't see that DVN is more relevant than P&S for our purposes. -- Bleu Ninja 22:32, 4 October 2021 (UTC)

I'm not sure. People who see the band credited in Ballad of The Sneak are more likely to search "DaVinci's Notebook" on the wiki... but that's the only reason I can think of not to rename the page, and you've given plenty of reasons to do so. Either way, one name should definitely redirect to the other. hegtcX1.png Gfdgsgxgzgdrc 20:52, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

Circling back to this to see if there are any objections to renaming to "Paul and Storm" (and making "DaVinci's Notebook" a redirect). My thoughts are that there are more/better reasons to switch to P&S:

Thing argument for crediting to DVN argument for crediting to P&S
Ballad of The Sneak
  • Toon reads "as performed by DaVinci's Notebook"
  • Page title The Ballad of The Sneak - DaVinci's Notebook
  • Commentary introduces Paul and Storm as "from DaVinci's Notebook"
  • Only Paul and Storm wrote and recorded the song
  • Only Paul and Storm appear on the DVD commentaries
  • Released on P&S album
  • Credited to P&S on H*R Original Soundtrack
Theme from Stinkoman
  • Mike introduces it as done by "The guys from Da Vinci's Notebook"
  • By the time it was first played (2007), DVN had been broken up for ~3 yrs while P&S had been active on their own for ~2 yrs
  • Credited to P&S in Stinkoman 20X6 credits
  • Credited to P&S on H*R Original Soundtrack
