More on The Wotch

Thanks to this website, I discovered The Wotch. I noticed that the cheerleaders (only AFTER they become cheerleaders - you'll understand why I make that point if you read it) have "TG" on their shirts, and one of them has Cheerleader's pigtails. You guys wanna call it a reference or a coincidence? --Jay 22:51, 22 Jan 2005 (MST)

Well, the name of their school is Tandy Gardens High, and according to their FAQ, the writers chose the initials TG for transgender. I'd say it's just a coincidence. (Neat little comic, though!) -- FortyTwo 22:58, 22 Jan 2005 (MST)
Oh. Well, I guess I didn't know the school's name. Still, they DID make a clear H*R reference in another comic (which is sorta how I discovered its existence in the first place - see the Sighting article page.) --Jay 23:03, 22 Jan 2005 (MST)

Possible "Dominic Deegan" reference?

I caught this link from another web-comic I read and I was reading through the archives when I stumbled across this comic. It looks like the back of Strong Bad's head, kinda, but the line the character says is DEFINITELY something Strong Bad would say. Can anyone confirm or deny that this is a HSR reference?

Oh! I forgot all about that DomDeeg comic! (Seen it before.) Yes, it was agreed upon by me and one of my online contacts that the comic in question does indeed include a Strong Bad cameo. --Jay 11:56, 22 Jan 2005 (MST)

Small question

Is the word/exclamation "huzzah!" directly linked to Homestar Runner or is it something generally used? Because I've spotted it in some game.

"Huzzah" is an exclamation used back in the old days in England, and possibly elsewhere. So no, it's not technically a sighting. --Hagurumon

Ok. Nah.. I saw it in Paper Mario 2, and I wondered....

Buffy

The "buffy" link is broken. --JD

Cheat

I'm not sure, but the Cheat section looks like it's been defaced. -User:oddtodd

  • I went ahead and fixed it myself. --oddtodd 21:43, 19 Nov 2004 (MST)

One Ring To Rule Them All 2

This belongs in the Discussion section:

  • no, i belive that music is "the Entertainer" a Rag time jazz song from the early 1890's by Scott Joplin.

No idea who wrote it, but it's about the background music in the middle of "One Ring To Rule Them All 2." (moved by oddtodd 21:43, 19 Nov 2004 (MST))

I wrote it - Futuramaooy

Enough with the Burnination "sightings"

Folks, please consider what refers to what.

Is it possible that TBC's "Burnination" refers to videogames that pre-date H*R? I mean, it can't be the other way around. Seriously: How could Final Fantasy 1 and 2 refer to H*R? Those go back to the late 1980s. beanluc 13:15, 14 Dec 2004 (MST)

Answer: It's the remakes. The line was added in to the new version on Game Boy Advance. Note that it says "Dawn of Souls". -Tom H.

Regular Chat

Holy crap! I'm like, an hour away from Hershey Park! I'm totally going there sometime now! Are they still doing the HR face paintings?

Cruxshadows Cd

On A Cd From Darkwave Band Cruxshadows (pronunces Croo-shadows) the thank you in the back says homestar runner ill try to scan a pic later

Possible Reference?

Just tell me, is "heart of a lion" a common phrase, because Ryan Seacrest from American Idol just said it a few minutes ago. --205.188.116.197

It's been a common phrase for centuries. See Richard the Lionheart. -- FortyTwo 19:19, 1 Feb 2005 (MST)

Table of Contents

In my opinion, it's getting too big and should be removed. --Gafaddict 19:42, 14 Mar 2005 (MST)


This Website Made a Reference!

Do we really need all sightings of the form "this webcomic / blog / whatever made a Homestar Runner reference"? It isn't very interesting to list every two-bit webcomic writer who sticks "burnination" in their comic. Aurora Szalinski 21:14, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)

I agree. Although the extremely popular sites (Such as Yahoo, Google, Maddox, etc.) should stay. --radiodj19 12:01, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)

Trim

This page really needs to be trimmed. It's getting way too long. I believe we should go through and remove all the minor HSR sightings and anything that could possibly be a stretch, leaving only major sightings (for example, Trogdor on Buffy, Asplode mentioned on Google blog, etc.). Any other comments on this? Kilroy/talk[[]] 12:05, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)

Frankly, I'd love it if we could just clear 'em out to a subpage, or split it up with those... why exactly were we fiercely against those again? --Shadow Hog 12:12, 20 Mar 2005 (MST)
