That's me. Yeah.

So, I'm Bluebry. I'm mostly over at Fanstuff, but I'm here sometimes.

[edit] Current thoughts

Just the things I think of. I'll try to keep it updated.

[edit] The Bar

The Bar has appeared in a few different toons. It seems to always feature Cold Ones or 'old ones and a bowl of peanuts on the table. It has a dartboard and a LEMKE pennant on the wall. Stairs are visible through one door, so it might be in a basement, or it might have a second story. It serves as the meeting place for the Broternal Order of Different Helmets.

Its second Flash appearance in Summer Short Shorts was almost identical to its first in the Theme Song Video, with an updated look to the bar and the characters.

In the DVD commentaries for Summer Short Shorts and Ever and More, the Brothers Chaps suggest that the bar is in Pom Pom's basement, referring to it as his "rumpus room".

[edit] Rich Trott

"It’s official. Trott was the one who went mad with power."
Rich Trott

Rich Trott is a composer and playtester for Dangeresque: The Roomisode Triungulate.

Throughout December 2022, Rich Trott reinterpreted the daily songs from the Decemberweenvent Calendar "sorta mostly in the style of the soundtrack to A Charlie Brown Christmas by the Vince Guaraldi Trio" and shared them on Twitter (@trott), most were retweeted by @StrongBadActual. In May 2023, Strong Bad tweeted a jazz/funk remix of the theme from Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon as a teaser for Dangeresque Roomisode 2: The Intersection of Doom & Boom; he then retweeted Trott's remix of the song, and challenged him to "jazz-interpret [a] little song I made up as I was reading the instructions for this shelf". Trott responded with multiple covers of the song.

In August 2023, Rich Trott's Decemberweenvent Calendar covers of Stave It Off and Strong Bad is a Bad Guy were used in Dangeresque: The Roomisode Triungulate. The game's soundtrack was released later that month, containing 13 new arrangements of the music by Rich Trott, in addition to the two tracks that were used in the game.

Trott has been a Node.js maintainer since 2015. He started the practice of using fhqwhgads in the code base when an arbitrary string or variable name is called for.

Halloween Template:

[edit] Ween Template

What if the Halloween template looked more like Template:aprilfool and Template:decemberweennav?

  • I don't know how to tighten up the spacing AND employ "font-size:smaller" (in the manner of Template:Decemberweenvent Calendar Nav)
  • Fan 'Stumes are separated onto their own line because they're released after the holiday proper. Ween Intro is on its own line because it's a "site component" rather than a regular release.
  • I'm guessing Ween Intro is from 2001 because that's when the regular Old New Intro was implemented.
  • "Halloween Safety" is in there twice because, unlike other teasers, it has a separate short toon ahead of it.

For comparison, here is the current template as of 2024-06-07:

[edit] Discussion

So I wanted to give back some feedback, mainly based on personal opinion:

  • Personally, I prefer the first sample, where only the big toons are listed by year.
  • I find the second sample compelling but I'm not in love with it. I don't think it's useful to split the "other" stuff by year. Fan Constumes: I'd be okay with grouping by year but OTOH I like that it has its own grouping. I'm 50/50 on that one.
  • I feel the third, 2D Matrix-like table is compelling, but at the end of the day I find it too busy :(. Maybe reducing the width of the bar on the left side might help but I wonder how it would look on smaller screens?

That's my feedback for revision 833605. So, I hope this helps! --Stux 14:00, 14 June 2024 (UTC)

[edit] Tangerine Dreams was used as a Main Page selected article!

"Your computer has too much computer in it and not enough typewriter."

Tangerine Dreams is The Cheat's iMac computer. He uses it to make Flash cartoons including The Cheat Theme Song, Everybody to the Limit, Main Page 15, and many more. It has also been used by Strong Bad to check his email in weird dream. Tangerine Dreams also appeared as a real live computer in Labor Dabor, in which it appears to be a Slot-Loading Tangerine iMac DV running Mac OS 9. The logo on Tangerine Dreams (the same logo as on the Tandy 400)—a rainbow-colored star with a bite taken out of its side—is a play on the old Apple logo, a rainbow apple with a bite missing. After using Tangerine dreams for many years, The Cheat was shown designing a new No Loafing Sign graphic with a new 5th Generation iMac in the email redesign. (More...)
