Problem Sleuth is not required reading, the only thing you'll miss by skipping it are several inside jokes that are pretty absurd even if you know the origin.
I like Homestuck, but you probably already guessed from my avatar.

And the fact that there's been a banner linking to a thread on the MSPA forums for nine months.

Speaking of the end of act five flash I just wanted to point out that the entire time I was literally shaking like some demonic super-motor. I was that excited. Then I watched it like 7 times over.

I really think it'll be hard for anyone to top that. Especially considering that Chapter 5 was pretty much as long as the rest of the comic. Act 5 is when ♥♥♥♥ went DOWN.

EDIT: Also this new album's pretty bumpin'. Obviously the best song is Cascade, though. I like Scourge Sisters too. :3

I hope for your sake that you don't get that excited over something like this, and that was hyperbole.

I honestly think you don't understand.

I FAKED SICKNESS TO SEE THIS GODDAMN ANIMATION.
Not really I actually am sick but still. I AM DEVOTION INCARNATE.

I don't know about you, but where I come from skipping school is a pretty regular thing, be it for an event or just because you don't feel like going to school.

So yeah, I once read Homestuck and I think the reason I now have no intention of reading it is because of all the fans toting it as the GREATEST THING IN THE WORLD OMG BRAH BEST EVARRR and then I read it for like half an hour. It wasn't the best thing ever, nor even good - pretty mediocre. But it seemed like UTTER ♥♥♥♥ because I was told it was going to be the second coming of Christ or something, and instead it was a barely-amusing webcomic thing.

HS is a thing, I think, that grows on you- that was the advantage of the original release schedule, with a page or two coming out per day. That way, you spent five minutes reading it at a time, and in a week or two, it had become routine, and an enjoyable part of the day you kept looking forwards to.
With most all the chapters on the archive now, people are trying to get through it all in one go, which is pretty much impossible, since it has some good six thousand pages. Then they get fed up with it and quit before reaching any of the most climatic parts. Which makes me sad.
I'd suggest reading it at a more leisurely pace. It's quite an unique piece of literature, once you get used to the way the plot develops.

And as has been said, anyone who judges it based on the first 100 pages or so is wrong. Not just being "NO YOU'RE WRONG" either, the entire thing changes so drastically that it isn't even comparable.

I actually find the Cascade mix in the album sort of annoying
It's a 13 minute long mashup of songs, but it's not an interesting mashup like descend was where the tracks are interlayed with eachother, they just play one after the other with a bit of scratching or distortion noise in between.
Why would I want that on my shuffle playlist when I have all the tracks it is made of on there already, only not fixed in a certain order?

Cascade (Beta) on the other hand, the four minute track that is the start of the full Cascade mix and isn't just a song from elsewhere on the album or another album, is definitely one of my favourites.
I'm also fairly fond of Flare, Havoc, Kingside Castle and Black Hole/Green Sun.

The thing is
You can't read 30 minutes or 100 pages. You really don't understand- as Areku said, the comic is over 6000 pages. Reading so little, obviously nothing AMAZING will happen.

It's like a REAL book. In the beginning, you get the characters and they do routine, average, boring things. Then something happens and you start enjoying the book. You can't just read the first chapter of a BOOK and say 'Bleh it's ♥♥♥♥ nothing happens', because for all you know you could've turned down a book you'd of loved so much it would be your favorite book ever.

I think this topic would be better off it was Homestuck fans discussing Homestuck rather than trying to convince people to read it (and the other way around too, without people telling us why they never bothered to read Homestuck).
You like it, fine, you think someone's life would be enriched by reading it, ok, but it's rude to keep pushing after they've already said no once.
It's one of the main reasons Bronies get so much hate and I'm not sure why it's such a mystery to some people.

And uh Miggles I mean I'm kinda fanatical about it and all and I think you're pushing it pretty hard.

I'm just saying. You don't read a book until page 10 and say it's awful.
Whatever.

Anyway:

LIST OF SONGS I LIKE: (From new album)
Calamity
Do You Remem8er Me
Flare
Love You (Feferi's theme)
Davesprite
Homefree
Scourge Sisters
Arcade Thunder
Pyrocumulus (Sicknasty)
Kingside Castle
Even in Death(T'Morra's Belly Mix)
Hussie Hunt
Havoc
Revered Return
Cascade
Judgement Day
I'm a member of the Midnight Crew (Acapella)

That's most of the songs, really. Some of them are just too slow and instrumental, and aren't very interesting to listen to.

So far I've only conditionally removed Remem8er Me, Frog Forager, Escape Pod, How Do I Live, Midnight Crew and Cascade and plan to keep the rest.
I'll give those six another chance too probably (except Cascade for reasons already stated) although I doubt I'll be putting Midnight Crew or How Do I Live back in

I'm just not really a big fan of vocals, I like instrumental pieces

Damn you and your possession of monies. I'll have to wait until someone uploads it most likely, or just steal them off of youtube using vid2mp3 or something. Or I'll just have to listen from the website.
