(How does THIS article count as “Movie Club”? What? Meh, let’s just go along with it.)
After the pretty scathing article I wrote about Homestuck last week, I wanted to focus on the most obviously-positive aspect of the whole of Homestuck, which is of course the music. Out of everything that has stuck with me from Homestuck over the past five and a half years since I started reading it, its amazing soundtrack, its Music Team, and the fan music community surrounding it have been a near-permanent fixture. And here’s just a few of the many reasons why:
The Moon pulled the nightcap over his head, getting cozy and sinking into his favorite nook in the night sky. He looked down over the four corners of the Earth, sprawling out below him. Veins of light pulsed through the land, streaming out from the cities that outlined the shape of the continents.
“Good night, humans. Sleep tight! I hope you have a fun and exciting day tomorrow!” the Moon said.
He looked over to his pal the Sun, his luminous twin who rotated in tandem over the other half of the Earth. He gave his buddy a wave.
“I’ll see you in the morning, Sun! Keep up the good work!” Moon said. Read more
Ted and John: Super-Teamup Fight Time Go!
It was almost time.
Ted Cruz pulled up the spandex on his suit in a glorious montage, showing his latex gloves, his American flag-patterned boots, his metal-studded codpiece, and the amazing T-embroidered shirt he wore to top it all off, complete with seemingly permanently-erect nipples poking through. He was almost ready to do battle against all the baddies. He was… the Firebrand.
“God, I’m just so sick of the Man, man!” Aiden shouted into the uncaring void of his $1100-a-month downtown studio. “Consumerism is, like, destroying this planet, man! All these Kardashians and Trumps and shit, man! Like, I don’t even watch TV.”
Aiden eyed the 30” CRT that sat atop the cinder block shelf at the front of the room.
“Yeah. I never watch TV. In fact… I don’t even need a TV at all!”
Aiden walked over to the television, wrapped his arms around it, and heaved the 30 pound hunk of plastic and glass off of the shelf. Read more
This week at HCAD, I promise there will be stories. That’s our job: giving you stories.
Last week at HCAD, there were some other stories. That’s our job: giving you stories.
Here are some of the stories you have access to which were published last week at HCAD:
- Is she a spy? Is she an assassin? Is she a 1960s pop reference? I know, and you can find out.
- Cyberbullying: George W. Bush and Saddam Hussein edition
- He’s a frog. He’s the fifth of his kind. He doesn’t want to be here.
- This is quite honestly the best Homestuck meta I’ve ever read and I can’t think of a funny summary.
All you need to know before you subscribe to HCAD is that we will always be here, waiting. It’s a good place to call home.
This is not a “movie” per se, but I will count it as HCAD Movie Club material because the finale of the comic is half an hour’s worth of animation so it is somewhat movie-like.
Homestuck ended over a week ago. It was bad. But with this article I want to focus on one aspect of the final two flashes that I think is the real culprit for everything that went wrong. Beside the Too Many Cooks-level of cast size and the overbearing ambition weighing down the plotting, I think the primary factor is that the fan pandering went completely out of control.
Frog: Frog4 was actually the fifth in his lineage. His father was not given a number next to his name. Frog: Frog1 was Frog: Frog4’s eldest sibling.
Frog: Frog was the first of his kind, a beauty of a specimen. His intelligence knew no bounds. The genetically enhanced frogs that came after him were equally smart, but had personalities that clashed with what the researchers wanted. After they, the test tube tadpoles, had hatched in the lab it was obvious that their creator would not be able to grow the world conquering amphibian army that she desired. Before reaching four weeks old, the new spawn of a thousand frogs stopped her schemes. Read more
