I Watched H*R For The First Time This Weekend (Isn't That Great?)

Those familiar with me from my action-animation domicile know that until last Christmas, my computer situation has been lacking. Flash would crash, videos wouldn't play, and MP3s barely got through. Needless to say, the internet has been hellish for me.

So, using my newish computer, I've come to discover what the internet has to offer. I bit the bullet and actually made a profile on MySpace. I checked out some of the music sites online (note to self: indy rock and hip-hop, nerdcore, and mashups like American Edit and anything from The Kleptones are pretty damned good, and Havoc TV is just a godsend). And this weekend, I finally caved into the pressure, the hoopla, whatever it is and actually checked out this thing called Homestar Runner.

I don't think I've ever laughed so hard at anything on the computer in my life. "A Folky Tale". . . oh my gosh. Frelling genius. "A Jorb Well Done" . . . wow. And Strong Bad . . . he was right in that intro video. I didn't know I was coming to the site for him, but, he's grown on me, crazy little bugger. Well, him and his little brother Strong Sad.

Then again, a lot of you guys and gals already checked this site out many moons before I did, and now I feel like I'm late to the party. As usual.

Not to worry, Jeff. I believe I was late to the party too, acknowledging the fact that Homestar Runner has been on the 'Net for going on (I think) 6 years. I discovered it early last year, but had known of their existence two years prior. I never had time to watch much web Flash animation--being in Brooks, you barely had time to breathe. In-between breaths you were focused on getting film assignments in the can.

I think the only web series in recent years that might be better than Homestar Runner, had to be Gotham Girls. That was exponentially kick-ass.

Have you found out about the hidden Homsar tape on the characters page yet? You click the eject button on the vcr to find it. It's hilarious.

How about clicking on the six on any of the main pages' 2006 to find the Homsar main page?

The infection known as Homestar spreads quickly. Soon you will be sporting t-shirts and yelling Trogdor!!!!
