We seem to have a reasonable consensus for the character being called "Stave" as it comes to the image of the guitarist, aka the dude who plays "stave it off, 1 2 3". Cool, we got that much. Now what do we do with Davey? Separate article, I'm guessing? We know that he is the one singing [[Crystal Fortress]], even if the guy we see is Stave (perhaps Stave is just being used as a visual representation of Davey or something), and we've seen him appear as a puppet-type-thing in PBTC style.

Revision as of 04:34, 10 November 2009

Is Davey voiced by Matt or TMBG?

Sure sounds like John Linnell to me on "Crystal Fortress" once you get passed the "Powered by the Cheat" part...
TMBG!!!!! DO YOU NOT READ! Sorry but it was just too obvious. -Absorr|Homestar Runner Wiki is a must 21:10, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

Who is that masked man?

Were did we find out his name was davey, we should put that in...

The person who sang the song is apparently named "Davey", but the image being named "Davey" is not only speculation, but contradicted by Fan Costumes '09. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 07:01, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Also, in the commentary to for kids the guy is referred to as "Stave It Off", just like in Fan Costumes... this might require a name change. wbwolf (t | ed) 07:04, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
The image being named Davey is not mere speculation; it's based on the fact that the guy called "Davey" at the beginning immediately puts on curly hair and a moustache, suggesting he is the hippie guitarist. Mind you, it appears he is also referred to as "Stave it off", so it could be worth a discussion. Either way, both names will certainly need mentioning. Heimstern Läufer 09:35, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
I vote for "Stave It Off Guy", because he was referred to as that twice. It's only suggested that Davey is hippie guitarist. I think blatant-calling-of-more-than-once beats one suggestion. Stev0 15:48, 9 November 2009 (UTC)

His name has been quasi-confirmed as "Stave" Change it, CHANGE IT NOW! -The Accountless Avenger

Strong Bad's assertion that he calls him Stave doesn't necessarily mean it's his real name. So no, I'm not going to change it immediately; something like this needs discussion. Heimstern Läufer 09:31, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Note that TBC make the same assertion in the feedburn. -128.103.10.211 15:58, 9 November 2009 (UTC)d
Since we at least know Strong Bad calls him "Stave", can we confirm that his line at the end of virus is "I don't remember your name, Stavey"? Octan 17:26, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Since we still aren't even sure on him being Davey, I say we go to the name we have the most confirmation on. Stave it is. Oh wait. I think that failed logic. Oh well, I still think Stave is the best name for right now.--Jellote wuz here 17:38, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure whether the puppet's name has anything to do with the guitar player's name. The guitar player is obviously not the puppet. — It's dot com 18:33, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
I got the feeling that the mention of "Stave" in the fan costume deal was sort of directed at Wikifolk who have named him Davey. I thought the Davey thing was just a "Davey and Goliath" reference/parody, by the manner of their dialogue, and then they saw that people were using that as the singer's name, taking things too literally, sort of in the manner of The Exact Same, but not nearly as funny. --TimMierz 19:33, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Truth is, TMBG made this song a while ago. "Davey" was mentioned then, but wasn't connected to Stave, because there were no visuals until this toon came out. Then Stave was used to represent the singer. Given we have two separate sources for the image being named "Stave", I think that should take precedence. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 20:03, 9 November 2009 (UTC)
Stave may well be the primary name of the guitarist, and indeed given the sources this seems pretty likely. The association of Stave with Davey is still clearly there. Perhaps Davey is a PBTC representation of Stave; perhaps Stave is used as a representation of Davey. Either way, the connection between the two needs to be noted in some way.
