A Decemberween Mackerel (NEW H*R TOON!!!)

Post by Uzi-Bazooka on Tue Dec 14, 2010 6:21 pm

IT'S TRUE! AT LAST!
A brand new Homestar Runner toon!
...
I don't even hardly remember what the topics for these are supposed to look like!

EDIT LATER:
Oh, yes. There's a poll. I thought that sounded familiar.
Anyway, it's true. The Bros. Chaps finally decided to come down off their high horse and make us a new Decemberween toon, which truly is...
A Decemberween Mackerel!
In case you somehow missed this, I'll put what I thought of it in a Spoila!
(Oh, and because somebody's gonna ask, the second quote on the poll comes from the official FeedBurner page.)

Spoiler:
I thought this was a great way to bring back Homestar Runner. First of all, it was straight up hilarious. Although I loved the whole thing, my favorite parts were probably "You're disgusting...barf." and the Easter Egg("Hot Poopoey: Oh Dear God, What Have We Done?")
Secondly, it makes fun of the fact that several people thought some character was going to die-and by targeting the least popular character, I bet some people thought they were serious! I personally didn't think so, but that doesn't diminish the awesomeness.
Next, of course, is the obvious fact: it's a huge toon, with better sound quality than most. By huge, I refer to its size, but it's worth noting that it is also one of the longer toons.
And finally, it makes several nods to past Decemberween toons. From the original song ("non-specific mouthwash") to a Death Defying Decemberween ("From the makers of Hot Jones"), to Homestar Presents: Presents, this is packed full of awesome references.

In short, I loved it. A lot. Easy 5/5, and hoping for another update next week!

I just realized...I managed to misspell "mackerel" every time I wrote it. Well, now I've changed it everywhere but on the Facebook page.

We don't know why it's big; but they probably wanted to come back with a "bang", as it were.
And, yes, as the Wiki will gladly tell you, that WAS Homeschool Winner in line. There were several other cameos, all of which I'm too lazy to list.

Yesterday was total crap. Sure, I had the day off school on account of all this snow, but my computer's monitor died, leaving me computerless except on the rare occasions when I can use the family computer (such as right now).

But y'know what made it less crappy? Randomly deciding to check the HRwiki on said family computer, and seeing that there was actually a Decemberween toon. And y'know what made it even less crappy? Seeing how freakin' awesome the toon is.

I just had the biggest smile on my face the whole time I was watching it. All of the jokes hit, all of the characters shined, and it was absolutely all that I could have hoped for for the return of H*R.
And I don't know if it's just because I haven't seen a new toon in ages, but did anyone else feel like this just had a real level of polish to it that no toon has had before? The higher sound quality, the larger size, the length, it really felt like the Bros. Chaps said "Y'know what, if we're gonna make this thing, let's make it amazing."

Therefore, I give it a 5/5, and I reaaaally hope that TBC keep with the updates. If they stay at the same quality as this, it could very well be a Homestar Renaissance of sorts.

"Hot Pooey: Oh dear god, what have we done?"
(Although I'm quoting your whole post, Wheelson, I'm putting it in a spoiler so it doesn't take up a huge amount of space.)
I know! It was similar for me too: I had a really crappy day yesterday for various reasons. When I came home, I opened the Internet to do something; I can't even remember what. However, I have the RSS Feed hooked to my iGoogle homepage, so I saw that they made a new toon.

And just like that, my whole day turned around. When I went onto the Facebook page to post the good news, a little message popped up. My best friend, who moved away last summer without leaving a forwarding address or anything, was chatting with me, and I got to talk to him for the first time in months. And with the new toon, it was like all of my best friends had come back to me!

In short, it truly was a Decemberween Mackeral!

Also, it DID seem like they put a little extra effort into it. And it's great-I've been watching old Homestar toons on the Wii as of late, but they're all way smalelr than the TV screen. But if they keep making them like this...

Yeah, that was great. I also liked the really long line at Bubs'. "Three miles or eighteen days...whichever comes first!" Until I saw the Wiki, I didn't even realize that New Year's is in 18 days.

The new toon drew me in. Pretty awesome, I'd say.

Naw, geek implies that you're on the same level as me. And sadly, when it comes to terms for this, "geek" and "Inglorious Mathnerd" are the only two to choose from.

You aren't even CLOSE to a Geek. Heck, reading the captions on Star Wars over and over was how I learned to read!

I kind of see you as a sort of balance to the forum. Whereas Falcon Paunch is a Straight Man (b/w "Wo") by choice, you're more of a straight man by necessity. While at times you're as nutty as the rest of us, you occasionally just have to step back and say "Okay, this is just messed up." In other words, you are like a blossoming ray of-
Oh, screw it, you're regular Greg. Or maybe Extended Universe What's Her Face.

Fine. I'll just go back to my perfect little white painted house on Straight Man Ave., and walk through my little white picket fence, and watch the local news as I eat a little TV dinner!
