    Matt chapman is totally awesome! He made the best website on the web, next to this and my Homestar forum, Homestar Runner dot com. It's 40% of my internet time. It's caused phrases as "Holy Crap!" and "DELETED!!!" to become phrases kids use. Like mentioned in Mike's review, without Homestar, I wouln't be on forums right now.
