Video Game Endings

That video game theme sounds very familiar... Moreso even than the Drive-Thru Whale theme... Where from? What do the expoits say? --DorianGray 10:49, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

I think it's from Population: Tire. --Jay (Talk) 10:50, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
GAH! Yes! That's it. Thanks. Now it's obvious. --DorianGray 18:29, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Lil Stong Buh Shirt

he's wearing a devil duckie t-shirt. We should have a page of all his t-shirts. Also, When the paper burns up, the ash says "bye now".

There is. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 11:24, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Inkjet Printers

The printer's new ink cartridge isn't working properly yet. As evidenced by the discolouration on the @ key and the horizontal lines throughout the printout. I'm not sure if it should be remarked or not. Stribbs 12:52, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Looking at the a change to the transcript saying there are white lines on the paper. They have colour in them as you'd notice by zooming in. I don't know how to revise to an earlier version of the page and I don't know to word the transcript to reflect the detail. If anyone would oblige Stribbs 14:10, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

the paper as a character

In this email at the very least the paper should probably be on the cast list. - Quolnok 13:16, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Cheesesteaks and Tastykakes

Could this be TBC's explanation for not updating last week? ;) Has Matt? (talk) 13:57, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Count to G

Could the score "G" be a reference to The Ugly One's "I can count to G!" statement in Teeny Tiny Girl Squad? Pretty obscure I admit...--Slackerboy 15:12, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

G is a running gag of it's own and already in the article's fun facts. Elcool (talk)(contribs) 16:37, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Strong bad is... old?

STRONG BAD: Why do all my thirty-year-old electronics keep breaking on me?!

At time of The Paper's birth, SB was like 2-7 years old or something. Well, unless he meant the technology 30 years ago. Murkrow 15:16, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Strong Bad's parents might have bought an old or second hand printer rather than a new one.
Remember, too, that there's other instances where we see Strong Bad represented as someone in his likely 30's. secret identity, for one. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 21:51, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Lightness...darkness... whaaa?

Did anyone else notice that a few hours ago, the Homestar easter egg was bright (i.e., it looked like a light was on in the room there), but now it's dark? CoveredinSuudzu 15:48, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

As the one who transcribed the toon shortly after it came out, I can't say I did. That said, the scene WAS bright in the actual scene in the email; just not the Easter egg. --Jay (Talk) 16:16, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
No it's always been dark. I saw it at 6 AM, Eastern time, shortly after it came out, and I remember thinking how bright Lappy was in the dark. Dr. Clash 18:33, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Sonic the Hedgehog 3 reference

When the island Strong Bad is standing on is sinking and he says something about killing end bosses, I think it's a reference to STH3 when, after defeating the final boss of the game, Angel Island falls from the sky and lands in the sea. There's also another game, Sonic & Knuckles, where I think the island actually floats into the sky again, again after defeating the final boss. Jimmy91 15:59, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

It could just as easily be a reference to the video game "Sinking Island". — Lapper (talk) 16:13, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
I always thought it looked a lot like the ending to Bionic Commando, where the Captain is flyiing away from the exploding base attatched to a helicopter. --ΞTHATKIDSAMΞ 16:28, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Reminds me of "The Island of Dr. Destructo" for the C64, where you bomb various things until plumes of water shoot up and they sink. While it starts off with boats and subs, it soon progresses to islands, an inland castle, and space stations. Yep, a big plume of water shooting out of a sinking space station. --The Archon
What is a "load bearing boss?" Wikipedia doesn't explain. Bombcar 16:35, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
It appears that the article on load bearing bosses was "merged" into Boss (video games), although the info cannot be found there either, so I'm guessing it was removed entirely. I removed the Wikipedia link and explained what a load bearing boss is in Explanations. Has Matt? (talk) 16:42, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
I thought it was a reference to Street Fighter, where Ryu ends up in the middle of the ocean after beating Akuma (Note Strong Bad's white Bandana). tehpie 20:19, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
It can't be a Sonic 3 (& Knuckles) reference, Angel Island is being held up by the master emerald, Robotnik stole that and the island fell into the ocean. At the end of the game your chosen character gets the emerald back (Off Robotnik as Sonic/Tails, Off Super Mecha-Sonic as Knuckles) and the island rises back into the sky as the credits are rolling. - Stribbs 00:31, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Freschka

Am I hearing it right? Homestar seems to mispronounce "Fresca" as either "fresha" or "freschka." --BigScaryMike (Talk/Contrib) 16:32, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

  • Yeah...I think he does. --Abelhawk 00:01, 12 June 2007 (UTC)

Trivia: first appearance of printer?

Should the fact that this is the first time the printer has been shown be added as trivia?

Ah, but it's not. Twice over. - Joshua 17:41, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

BASEketball

Hate to bring up the movie, but Homestar using a football on a basketball court is very reminiscent of BASEketball. csours 22:24, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Nightlight

Some anonny changed the word "night" in Strong Bad's song to "light". I can't listen to it right now to check, but is there any reason to think it'd be "light"? "Night" has a precedence. --Jay (Talk) 20:54, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

it is night csours 22:22, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Obviously there's some disagreement here. I've seen more than one user use "light". Perhaps we should all re-listen rather than edit the page willy-nilly without consensus. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:26, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
Like I said, I can't listen right now. I only changed the Fun Fact back to "night" after someone else changed the transcript. --Jay (Talk) 22:31, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
I was merely attempting to prevent future willying and nillying, which often occurs in cases like these. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 22:36, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
I definitely hear "night". Loafing 22:37, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

.4?

Is Homsar's number as ".4" a reference to Strong Sad's lament, when he acknowledges that about his hit counter? --Abelhawk 23:56, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

As I was reading...

I was reading the Fun Facts and I couldn't find anything about the reference to the "One two" toon. Has anyone put it in there yet? Bassium! m OCE
