Life Late Bloomers

Posted December 27, 2006 at 7:54 PM by Threeboy in Life
So Jess got me World of WarCraft for Christmas - maybe I should take the hint, she probably doesn't want to see me or something. In any event Cranston is also up ons the game, and Moze might peek his head in too.

Our character & server information may be found in this forum thread - so join up with us if you want. Just remember we're newbz. If you haven't played but want to try it out me know and I'll send you the free 10 day trial invite.

This could be the end of the world... of WarCraft.

TrueNuff Forums problems

Posted December 22, 2006 at 11:24 AM by J.Rai in TrueNuff
It's true our forums are down, and we're well aware. We're also mighty pissed off.

Our host tells us it's a scripting problem and the Forums guys say it's a host problem.

We're doing what we can to try and get them back online ASAP.

Update: OK they're back online now, but they may be sporadic for the next little while.

Comic Comics Delayed

Posted December 20, 2006 at 7:21 PM by Threeboy in Comic
Comics are going to get delayed, I have no idea how long for. I'm hoping they'll be up before Christmas so get on the Mailing List and keep checking your email.

Just pretend they got delayed by a virtual blizzard or something.


TNTV In Memoriam

Posted December 19, 2006 at 12:36 PM by J.Rai in TNTV
In the young life of the TrueNuff TV! project, we have had many friends and allies. Those who have assisted us temporarily, and those who have come to be like addition members of our family. We recently lost one of these extended family members. You will be missed, Cranston's Beard.

Cranston's Beard (or "CB" for short) came to us early this year, at first only lurking around in the shadows of the evenings of hangover days, finally making his presence known - if only slightly - in the early spring. A late bloomer, he took some time to establish himself as not simply bad lighting or dirt or food of some kind.

An only child never joined by a mustache sibling, CB formed a strong relationship with Cranston, refusing even to be joined by a soul patch. CB would often come to Cranston's aid in arguments of various sorts by proving Cranston had "big boy hair too" and thus affirming his status as a kind of man.

In later months he would even appear in TrueNuff sketches, like C-Bomb, Smash Co., and the wildly popular Mac Spoofs. Can CB be given credit for the viral success of the advertisement parodies? Hard to say, but one thing is for sure - he contributed to the character of that annoying slacker hippie douche bag (the Mac character, not Cranston!)

This past weekend, while filming a series of new sketches, CB made the ultimate sacrifice in the name of TrueNuff TV! by taking his own life to clean up Cranston's character as "The Boss." While CB's contribution may only be recorded in history as an asterisk in the margin of an appendix of a limited edition supplemental (or perhaps a DVD commentary track) - we are surely all better off having lost him. Good riddance, you fucker! HAHAHAHA! I hope you're reincarnated as the short and curlies on a Vegas showgirl, being ripped out by the roots every month! HAHAHAHAHAAA!

He is survived by some nose hairs and a slight unibrow.

TNTV Long shootings

Posted December 17, 2006 at 9:23 PM by Cranston in TNTV
Well we wrapped an intensive weekend of sketches. Three in total, baby! Now we're looking at getting them done for a contest coming up. We'll let you know later how you can support and help us win the prize.

Just checking our YouTube Director's page and I see we have some pretty good stats. Not only are we about to hit the 3 million mark for views, but we also have some great stats like most viewed directors and most subscribers. Awwwwwsit!

A big thanks goes out to our loyal viewers for all their support. It's nice to see people can watch a video on the internet that doesn't need a kid falling on his face causing his teeth to fall out to get noticed.

Don't get me wrong, that's funny, but we pride ourselves on bringing you quality videos on our limited budget.

Anyway, thanks for watching and stay tuned for our year in review blooper Speachal Felchure!

I mean, Special Feature!

Bye for now.

Comic Return of the Rob

Posted December 15, 2006 at 6:03 PM by Threeboy in Comic
Forgot to post about these comics (1, 2) - the Rob's back!

Friday's (today's) comic will be out shortly - Holiday buzz and various website issues we've been dealing with have delayed them. It looks like the Voting site has had similar issues - but it's back now. Since the next comic isn't done you'll see a picture of a penis if you vote.

Just kidding.

Ha-peen Holidays.

Life Christmas Shopping

Posted December 13, 2006 at 11:59 AM by J.Rai in Life
Wel it's that time of year. And by "that time of year" I mean the two weeks before The Holiday when I should really consider going out to buy the presents I need to give to people. I know what I'm going to get, I just have to go and get it all.

The hot item this year is, of course, the Playstation 3. Well, it would probably have been hot anyway, if Sony had managed to only make more than 300 of the damn things for sale before Christmas. Fortunately, there are options for those of you who saved up the $600 needed (MSRP, not the crazy eBay prices) to get one! Here's some other way for you so spend your money:
  • 2 XBox 360 Core Systems
  • 2 Nintendo Wii Systems, and $100 left over for games!
  • 3 PSPs
  • 4 Nintendo DS Lite systems (with games)
  • Between 50 - 100 NES systems at the Salvation Army
  • A 1993 Geo Metro convertible and probably a few tanks of gas
  • About 20 shares in Nintendo (maybe not such bad idea)
  • About 15 shares in Sony (maybe not such a good idea)
  • About $1800 of Food for your local food bank
  • Feed 2 third-world children for 2 years
OK so maybe you can see where my alliances lie. No I don't know anything about the stock market but if you make money of my snide remarks I will welcome a 20% commission. Oh and if you think I ended that list on a downer, just give a thought to giving to someone you DON'T know this year. Whether in your local community, or farther away.

TrueNuff Splashy!

Posted December 8, 2006 at 6:43 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
You might notice that the TrueNuff index is a bit more 'splashy' - this was done in response to people visiting our site for the first time and saying "what, it's a blog?" - some of those people were our friends.

We're working on a new full-blown site with many cool features, but that may be a month or two off so here's the temp solution.

Splash, splash, havin' a bath.

Comic The Brando Strikes Back

Posted December 7, 2006 at 1:25 PM by Threeboy in Comic
New comic again, Brando is back!

Remember we're starting our Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule next week and that will continue until the end of the month.

Also remember you can VOTE to see the next comic early.

Well, I guess you don't really have to remember 'cause we'll just remind you.

TNTV TrueNuff TV! In December

Posted December 5, 2006 at 3:37 PM by Threeboy in TNTV
We're going to be too busy working on TrueNuff TV! in December to release any sketches. Wrap your head around that one. We're shooting not one, not two, but three office themed sketches for a contest. We'll release the sketches here eventually though, most likely in January.

Wish us luck, we will need you to vote for us when the contest kicks off - sign up on the Mailing List to be part of the TrueNuff Army.

We *might* release a sort of TrueNuff TV! "blooper" reel with some outtakes, as a year in review but it just depends if we can get to it.

Ninja Edit: New mac ads at Apple - I'm still not getting one... yet...

Busy being busy.
