Hold it. Control it. And buttons, come on, let's see you purge it!

The Clothy Clothé delivers European-sounding flair, with southeast-Asian-sounding prices.

I. Hate. Sauerkraut!


A Little About Myself


Greetings! Please let me introduce myself. My user name here, as you can probably see, is Elcool (I also used to be known as E.L. Cool, but shortened it for convenience). Outside of the WikiWorld and InternetLand I go by the name of Elad (IPA: [ʔel:ʕad]). Elad L. (hence the initials E. and L. on my user name). I hail from the State of Israel, just in the center of the Middle East and very much proud of it. As an Israeli, I am fluent in Hebrew and (pretty much in) English. כתחביב, אני אוהב לזרוק משפטים בעברית באמצע טקסט לועזי שאף אחד לא יבין.

I came to this world kicking and screaming on December twenty third, nineteen eighty seven. I study Earth science, and am a freelance astronomy teacher. I work in Givatayim Observatory and Planetanya as well as a bunch of schools and community centers. It really is the best job ever. I got merried in 2019 and now live with my wife near Tel Aviv.

I was first introduced to the world of Homestar Runner when I was in junior high, around the time dragon and japanese cartoon were out. If I remember correctly, I saw the toon I got linked to and did not continue to check the site out. After seeing more and more links, I wondered what the site is about and started exploring it for myself. At that time there was no index page and no navigation bar, so the first thing I watched was the intro. I was welcome to some main page and I felt like the whole site was laid there on my hands and I didn't knew what to make of it. For a minute or so I looked around and moused over the buttons, until I noticed the First Time Here? link. The rest is history.

After I watched everything at least twice, I jokingly typed in the first address I could think of:, At first I thought it was some kind of joke, like some of the Easter eggs, but after careful reading I found out it was actually a fan forum. I started reading it and was amazed at the sheer number of fans just like me, as anyone in my class I showed the site, did not like it. I registered as fast as I could and had my first real fan experience. Of course I now found out about the existence of far more Easter eggs then I knew about and some secret pages I completely did not know, like Matt cake and the like.

The .net forums died at it's peak, leaving for me a big gap to fill with a community devoted to Homestar Runner like they were. In November 2003 I found out about the old wiki and read some of it's articles. I was amazed at the amount of pinpoint precision in which all these people analyzed each toon. Sure, the consistency level and the standards were not as high as today, but it was still there - all the information, all the characters and all those secretes I liked so much. After some weeks of lurking around and seeing the site updates, I registered the nick name which I had since the sixth grade and made my user page. I was not accustomed to the inner workings of the wiki accidentally blanked the glossary but got off with only a warning.

That first experience scared me a bit, and therefor I did not edit much. That was until I once again made my usual daily visit to the wiki, only to find out about the new MediaWiki interface. So smooth and so shiny. I started reading talk pages and HRWiki namespace pages and got accustomed to the new standards. On April nineteenth, 2005 the first thing I made was a short, one-line user page and cast my vote on the April 2005 Sysop Nominations. I made more and more edits and several pages until on March eighth 2006 I was made part of the sysop team.

I also wrote the Hebrew article on Homestar Runner in the Hebrew Wikipedia, the Hebrew subtitles for the subtitles project, and some other sutff.

After the long hiatus I too took a break from wiki editing. I still used it from time to time to remember facts and find toons, but I didn't even bother logging in. Recently, I think, with the new influx of Homestar content coming in, I'm finding myself going to this wiki more often. So maybe I'll start editing it more? Maybe make some substantial changes? Who knows! This feels like taking an old box of belonging from the back of the shelf, all dusty and nostalgic, and trying to remember all the things you used to do a long time ago. So, we'll see how it goes.

Thank you for reading, Elcool (talk)(contribs) א.ל. קול

Me and the Wiki

Page Creations and translation

Transcriptions and subtitles

Other Costumes

I took the Other Costumes pages as my little project, and I split it from all being one one page to the several it is now, and standardized them along with Joshua.
I put all the costumes in chronological order in the following pages:

I added a total of about 90 images of costumes and completely made the following pages:
