Hey, lady, where are the recent storyboards?
During this most recent break, South Park Studios has been moving it's offices to another building. And during that move, things have been scattered about in all the new rooms here at the shiney new place. Once all the dust has settled I will get you the storyboards for 712-715 ASAP. Pictures of the new studio will be made available once we get ourselves more situated.

The new office is really cool, it's bigger than the last one and has these awesome windows on the ceiling. Each person now has their own little workspace, much like a cubicle, but instead of that strange particle board you've been seeing in all the office photos of our employees, we get real walls, like actually made of dry wall! Everyone seems to have gotten a bigger office, and they've been working on the sound booth all week. So far everything is shaping out well, and I can't wait to see it fully furnished and back in crunch mode. I miss the musky smell of the South Park staffers ;p

Tentative date for season eight
This has not been confirmed, but rumors are that the new season of South Park will begin on March 17th... OR March 24th 2004, I'm not sure as of now, but will get back to you as soon as I find out.

Mephisto and Kevin
Get yourself a rare talking plush doll pair. I haven't seen these in quite sometime, I'm still keeping my eyes open for the Mr. Hat puppet, if anyone has seen it on sale, email me.

Big Lego Cartman
Ok, this thing isn't for sale... but it's cool. Some people just have too much time on their hands! Growing up my brother could somehow always make really cool things made out of LEGOs, I never could... here's something that I wish I could have made when I was a kid. Giant Cartman!

Tutorial on how to make Kenny in Flash.
(Have to be pretty familiar w/flash)
I know some of you are pretty familiar with Flash. I found this nifty little "Create your own" character tutorial that shows you step-by-step on how to create Kenny. Check it out, and have fun! CLEEEK MEEEE!

Huge Plush Collection for Auction
Someone is selling their entire collection of South Park plush dolls on Ebay right now, and if you've been searching for ready-made South Park collection, then this is just for you. It's not cheap but it is a great collection. Check it out.

You're a TURD!
Pre-Sale auction for the SHELLY plush is up for those of you maybe just looking to add on to your collection. Apparently the Mephisto set I showed in the post before was also a pre-sale auction. I think it may have been a re-release of the pair because I swear I've seen them in Matt and Trey's office before, maybe I'm just going crazy? CLICK NYAW to check out the Shelly plush.

Trivia this Thursday
That's right my little primates! A super happy fun fun fun trivia game will be held at 3:00pm (western) and 6:00pm (eastern) in the OFFICIAL southparkstudios.com trivia chatroom. The prize this week will be a Chef T-Shirt (size MED) that says "Perhaps you'd like to try my low calorie cookies" and has Chef on the front with a box of his "Go Fudge Yourself" cookies.

I'm a monkey, how do I join trivia?
Good question to ask, my little monkey, here is what you do:

Congratulations
Congratulations to Wallyosu for winning yesterday's trivia contest... taking the win away from Airman44, again. Poor AirMan44, he can just taste victory, and then it's snatched away! I'm hoping to have another trivia contest next Thursday, I'll keep you all updated on how that is going next week.

Ebay Auctions
It looks like this guy makes some custom labels, if you're one of those dorks (like me) who loves personalized address labels, then check these Terrance and Phillip ones out.

Eye Candy
Orgazmo on VHS
Cannibal! The Musical on DVD.

Plushies and Snowglobes
This Kenny plush is no longer made, and not too many are out there anymore, Kenny dressed as an angel.
I think this item was sold for just one Christmas and only a few people were told about it. I've seen these around the office, they belong to the staff. This thing is really cute, check out the South Park snowglobe.

Moderately Disturbing Items
Have safe sex the South Park way, with a full set of collectable condoms.
Wake up to the cool sounds of "Make Love to ya Woman" being sang by chef in this nifty moving and singing alarm clock. Be the first kid on your block to have a really annoying singing plastic clock!
