Funny jokes and alt rock stuck in my head
I just got around this evening to watching the 200th Strongbad Email that bowed last week over at www.homestarrunner.com. (Look, it’s been a busy couple of weeks, so cut me some slack. I mean, Homestar Runner is the home site on the BAM family computer and I still couldn’t get around to watching the 200th sbemail.) And now the celebratory 200th sbemail song is wedged in my brain, and I don’t think it’s going anywhere any time soon.
No wonder: Alt-rockers They Might Be Giants performed the ditty. It’s a testament to the band’s quirky charisma that it can make something so straightforward that’s still so wildly catchy.
Along with fun music, the 200th sbemail, “Email Thunder,” features zany inside jokes, the return of favorite characters (name one other TV, Web or comic series in which you can count paper as a character) and funny spoofing of those wretched flashback-laden landmark TV sitcom episodes.
If you haven’t checked it out, you definitely should go over there and get a little Flash-powered absurdist comedy fix.
