Well "Ginger," or "IT," or whatever you want to call it, was unveiled earlier today. Count me among the vastly underwhelmed. If I was any less whelmed, I'd be plant food. To read more about it, click here.

To get a better look at the wonder that is the Segway Human Transporter, or SHT (I'm not kidding) for short, click right here my friend. Is it just me, or is there a flexigrip up his arse.

Boy howdy! Here's one for the fans in the Great White North. It looks like the fifth season of South Park will debut on Canada's Comedy Network on December 28th. Seeing that the subject matter is so timely, Episode #509 "Osama bin Laden has Farty Pants" will lead off the season. Episode #502 "It Hits the Fan" will follow on January 4, 2002. I'm assuming the remainder of the season will follow in the same order as originally broadcast.

Big up to DTISFU for the heads up. To read more about it, visit your local library, or just click right here.

The next South Park DVD will include four episodes from the first half of Season Five. That sucker should hit the shelves sometime in June of 2002. The four episodes included are "It Hits the Fan," "Cripple Fight," "Scott Tenorman must Die," and "Proper Condom Use." So quit asking!

Mr. Garrison Hits the Big-Time

Setaanbomb posted this link to a great article in Time Magazine about Dean Kamen's "It," now known at "SHT," or Segway Human Transporter.

They even mention South Park in the article

Even the reprobates at South Park got into the act, spoofing Ginger in a recent episode--the details of which, sadly, are unprintable in a family magazine.

Wow, Time called us "reprobates." We're certainly moving up in the world, aren't we? Can Time's "Person of the Year" (tm) be far behind?

Since the crash last week we've been working hard on getting all the downloads and the BBS back to the way they used to be so please bear with us. We are aware of the things that are going wrong on the BBS and with the downloads so there is no need to email us about the broken links we're working on it! I will post here on the main news page and the BBS once there are new things fixed on the site. Thanks so much for your patience!

Hey Everyone,

Just wanted to let you all know that we're fixing up the broken links in the downloads section. Those should be done soon. Once I know when everything is back up and in working order I will post here on the main news page and on the BBS to let you all know. I have been doing my regular processing of images/sounds/and videos so they're all ready to go.

Just to let you all know that we are aware of the office photos page and interviews page being down, so you don't need to email me anymore about it. They're getting worked on and should be up soon so don't worry. The BBS also still has a few quirks and that's getting fixed so please be patient. It'll back up and running like it used to soon.

I added a new poll so cast your votes by clicking... nyaw

Some of you have been emailing us asking when the site will get a holiday make over. Once we've gotten the minor problems that occurred after the crash I will make it happen! For now it's still the Thanksgiving stuff.

Here's a one of the photos we took at the South Park Staff Christmas Party we had not too long ago!

This is (from left to right)Ali, Steve, Alison, Tricia and Daryl


This was some good fun, and you gotta love the open bar and free yummy asian food! Everyone sat down by the fire and opened their Secret Santa gift later on during the night that was either giving to them by a busty red-headed female santa, or a guy with no shirt, santa pants, santa hat and a cheetah thong. But isn't Christmas all about the cheetah thong? Of course! Typical Norman Rockwell style... cheetah thong.

More X-Mas Party Pictures




From left to right, Scotty, Keo, Ryan, Crispy and Adrien. Ryan accidentally smacked his head on the knee of someone else in a huge dogpile dash to the carpet for a prize. Unfortunately Ryan came up empty handed and bloody! Maybe he learned his lesson that diving to the carpet with five other people usually ends up in PAIN! As we were giving away our secret santa presents, Trey kept tackling people to the ground, he's a good tackler! He just might fulfill his greatest ambition after all!

X-MAS!

I'm also going to be out of the office for one week from December 24th to December 28th so there will be no news / picture updates for one week! I also wont be answering my email but keep writing I will get it when I return on Monday the 30th.
