From Homestar Runner Wiki
Some Junk You Might Want to Know
Oh! Hello there everybody, everybody!! This is your captain speaking. Please make sure your in a full and upright position. That means sit up and pay attention because I'm about to tell you ALL about how awesome I am!
Here. We. Go.
I've been watching H*R for quite some time now. I think I first came upon Homestarrunner.com sometime in late 2003, and the first thing I remember watching was a Strong Bad Email. It was the sbemail kids' book. I wasn't sure what to make of the site at first, but as the email progressed I found it endearing and hillarious. But there was one page in that book with one line that just made me laugh from the bowels of my lungs. It was the line "Some people are about to be run over. Frankie has about 5 seconds." I laughed and laughed and laughed at that!
So like any good new fan, I spent the next week or so watching EVERYTHING (and I do mean everything) on the site. Starting of course with all the sbemails and moving to toons, shorts, etc. The thing was, I didn't know about this Wiki at the time, so I didn't even know about easter eggs until AFTER I had watched most of them. So I had to go back and blindly try to find them all on my own. Nothing quite as startling & satisfying as the first time you realize there are hidden toons, games and other stuff littered throughout the site!
Ah, and that's how my life as a Homestar Runner fan started. I found the Wiki and forum sometime in 2004 and have been lurking about it until now. Now I'm here and on a rampage! WOOOO! So yeah! I'm on a rampage! ....... watch out now.
Currently as of 2010, I am living in New York City. I have a song writing credit on Weezer's Death to False Metal. I helped write the song "Turning Up the Radio," through a fan driven project on YouTube with Rivers Cuomo. Check it out sometime! Buy it if you want! That'd be swell!
Get'n More Personal
Here are some factoids about me you probably don't care to know. My real name is Robert Daniel Powell and I am 5'9"" tall. My hair is brown and eyes are too. I'm living in the great state of Texas, we invented the calculator I think. I'm the ripe old age of twenty and two, although a lot of people think I'm younger than that when they see what I look like. I play both Piano and Guitar and have written well over 200 songs between them. My contact perscription is -7.25 in the left and -8.00 in the right. Means I don't see too good. I can't make it on my own! I drive a 2001 Ford Ranger Edge Ext. Cab - Tropical Island Blue.
Annnnnd... Oh yes, of course, I spend far too much time online. That about covers it. No wait, no it doesn't. Here's another tidibt of info that I kind of forgot about. Way back in 2005, when I was just a forum visitor but not yet really brave enough to tackle the wiki, I signed Matt Chapman's virtual birthday card. I have a pretty big message on it too! Cool eh? Check it out below... I'm the one that has my name below it. ;)
In case your having a hard time reading it, this is what it says:
Is it wrong to tell a guy you don't know who makes toons on the internet that you love him? If it is, then, Happy Birthday!
Keep being awesome.

Crap I Do Around These Here Parts
I do a lot of different things around the Wiki. One of the first things I did was create an animated gif showing the difference between a scene in Theme Song Video and Summer Short Shorts, that was cool because it fades from the old art style to the new and everything is in just about the same exact place. I also created the page for The Bar. That was my first completely new page creation. Another page I made was for the Limozeen Coloring Book from coloring. And my first transcript was Blue Laserdisc Challenge, followed by the transcript for 4 branches, both pages I created!
Lots of edits here and there, ya know, fixing stuff adding inside references and goofs and and and what not. I got pretty excited the day I caught a sbemail BEFORE the wiki and got to do some major contributing towards the creation of a sbemail page, which happened to be for road trip. And I got pretty dissapointed like, the next week, when I caught it the same time as everyone else and couldn't get the WIKI to load a page in less than 5 minutes. And every edit I made someone else made at nearly the same time. lol.
I really like to contribute to the Featured Articles Section. Voting on what should be the next main page, featured article and occassionaly actually making the page. The first one I made was a feature article for Homsar.
Umm. I have made lots of other random edits that I've forgotten about already. lol. But they're like all on my contribs page so you can just go rummage through it if you really care. *cough*Iknowyoudont*cough*
Oh yeah and uhh... I vote on things on the STUFF page. And whatever else I can find to do. I seem to keep finding new things to do too.
