I tried to post a journal just now that didn't go through apparently. It was really funny and insightful all at once, and probably could have cured some life-threatening diseases. But whatever, the website didn't want to post it so I guess it wasn't meant to be.
I came across this really interesting article by the AV Club about Homestar Runner today. They really get to the core of what makes the series special, and how the site impacted internet culture.
Speaking personally, I can say that, aside from Rooster Teeth, Homestar Runner is the number one influence for what I do. I can't say there's a day that goes by that I don't think about or reference it in some way, which really speaks to how big a part of my life it is.
I've got big news! This November, @Monty and I are traveling to your dangerous country to SEE ALL OF YOU. Two weeks. Three events. COUNTLESS MEMORIES.
First up, from Nov 8th-10th, is SUPANOVA BRISBANE at the RNA Showroom (in Brisbane of course). Monty and I will be there to meet all who are kind enough to see us, and we'll even ruin your valuables with our scribbly signatures for the low price of ZERO AUSTRALIAN DOLLARS. Please come see us and tell us where to get good pizza. Also that weekend is RTOZ, which will be a time and a half. Stay tuned to their site for more info on that.
Second! On November 12th in MELBOURNE, we will be at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image, or ACMI, for an animation panel and Q&A! This should be a lot of fun, so come listen to us talk about our approach to animation and have a good ol' time. Tickets will go on sale next week! More details coming soon.
Then finally we're off to ADELAIDE for another SUPANOVA EXPO at the Adelaide Fairground from the 15th to the 17th. Again, come see us so we can talk about how awesome kangaroos are. As usual, we will be happy to sell and sign a bunch of stuff.
So there you go! We're both really excited to be visiting your country and seeing as many people as possible, so please don't be shy! Bonus points if you're from Burnie, Tasmania. Thanks!
