3-02-03: Hiatus: Alright,
here's the deal. Home Movies will be taking a hiatus from Adult Swim
for several months. If you need to blame some show, you can blame
the newly picked up Family Guy or the returning Baby Blues. However,
don't fret because the show will be returning for a Fourth Season
in Fall 2003 (that's the official date, so it's possibly earlier/later).
So, if you want to catch Season 3, do it now!
3-09-03: Class Trip: Yeah, I'm still
here. Sorry for no updates...other stuff...but I'll be updating something
eventually. I did keep the schedule up to date and put in the week's
reviews, so thats good. I have some ideas for the "Show"
section, and I'll get to those eventually.
3-15-03: Renaissance: Alright, a
couple of things. I've begun the character pages, check the show section
for details. I'm thinking of leaving Angelfire for Brinkster...however
I'm not sure. My bandwidth has gone over the limit several times (which
is kind of weird figuring how this is a text/picture site), and I'm
looking for a better host. Of course, none of you care. So why am
I writing this? I don't know. I'll be doing the usual site update
tommorow, as well.
3-16-03: Added a neat little thing
today...for the Garden Gnomes in each episode, a picture is now availible.
3-21-03: Class Trip: Goodbye Angelfire
popups...hello gray backgrounds on my front page! I've moved to Brinkster,
so I'll see how this works for awhile. Normal updates tommorow. Oh,
and if you notice any problems on the site (unloaded picture, page,
etc.) please tell me. And yes, I know about the background on the
front page. E-Mail Me
3-22-03: Identifying a Body: Adult
Swim (including HM) was recently a cover piece in the TV Section of
the New York Times. The section about HM:
"...Among those in the latest cartoon generation
is "Home Movies", a slice of the ironic and introspective
life of Brendon Small, a third grader who transcends his quotidian
existence by making home movies. Brendon, it turns out, is an auteur.
In one episode, after Brendon has taken up the
guitar, he encounters his school's athletic coach. Noticing the guitar,
the coach begins this exchange, delivered in near monotone by both
characters (think Woody Allen)..."
At this point, they wrote part of the McGuirk/Brendon
dialogue from "Guitarmageddon". Cool article, I must say.
Normal updates today (and hopefully I'll get a guestbook up).
Also welcome our newest HM reviewer...the always entertaining
Condiment King. I added his reviews to a couple of episodes, as well
as the reviews for the last two episodes of HM's run, "Broken
Dreams" and "Stow A Way".
The guestbook is up! Check at the bottom to sign it!
And also, a cool little thing was added...instead
of the usual "Starboy and the Captain of Outer Space" picture
on the "splash" page, we (well, actually I) have a random
One more thing, as well...I added a really neat guitar
related update to the "Guitarmageddon"
page. (Thanks to Dave Dycus for this one!) Also, another little "Stow
A Way" addition involving "Uncle Pedro" (Thanks to me
me for this one).
Also, expect a redesign of this site soon (well, if
Hiei-lover Gogeta ever gets it finished). ;-)
3-25-03: Time to Pay the Price: I've
upgraded from the free basic Brinkster plan (which is the reason why
the bandwidth kept dying on this site) to the Brinkster SE plan (4
times the bandwidth for $4 a month). The bandwidth should be pretty
stable now (but please don't go nuts).
Also, the front page logo (as you probably noticed)
has been updated with a new "Random Image" server thing.
Once again, don't go nuts refreshing the page, please.
3-27-03: Impressions: Neat little
poll is up today...I'll try to find a better place for it, but I think
it kind of looks cool on the front page. I'll update the poll...when
I feel like it.
3-28-03: Mortgages and Marbles: Mortgages
and Marbles, one of the biggest Home Movies related sites on the
internet (well, if you count this one, one of three) has closed it
doors today. The site is still up, but Spectre has said his interest
in the show has dropped and he just doesn't feel like updating the
site anymore. However, if the past Slapstick Barbarian Project is
any indication, the site could very well be back up with a new design
at the end of the day (check the archives from 2-13-03 and 2-14-03
to see what I'm talking about).
I did some work on the character page...the basic
list is up, the basic pages for the Main & Major Characters is
up (but not the "[Character] is..." part with the pictures)
and the basic pictures are up. Go to Characters
to see them.
I updated the Links page
to look...slightly better.
I'm considering adding a "Rants" section
to the site (basically analyzing/reviewing/complaining about anything
HM related), but I would need some rants to put up. If you feel like
ranting, and have some time to kill, feel free to E-Mail
3-29-03: The Party: All of the Minor
Characters basic pages are up on the Character
page. I might do the One-Timer Characters later, as well.
3-31-03: Brendon's Choice: I got
rid of CGISpy, and all their crappy downtime. I'm with some other
HTML place, so feel free to sign my guestbook (or resign it if you
already did). The Rants
section is officially up, with a nice little theory
of Josie's origin brought to us by H A N as well as a fanboy fueled
rant about HM's treatment in the UPN Days
by The Landstander (aka Yours Truly). If you feel like writing about
HM, feel free to submit any of your rants to The
Landstander. If you don't know what to write about, I gave a couple
of suggestions on the main Rants page.
