TrueNuff Eight Beer Poppers Left!

Posted August 11, 2009 at 4:26 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image The Beer Poppers have become our most successful merchandise item to date! We only have eight left and that's not a cheap ploy to try and get you to buy more poppers as we've already started the process on ordering a second batch so sleep easy!

We're stoked, you guys really "brought it" on these poppers. A few of the Nuffies (TrueNuff Forum Members) suggested we offer a 10-pack Beer Popper buying option. The Crew & I thought the nuffies were crazy and they proved us right since the 10 pack option has been selling. We make less profit on the 10 pack but we don't mind because you guys have been showing your friends how cool these Beer Popper gadgets are and that gets TrueNuff "out there" and ultimately kicks a lot of ass - thanks guys!

TrueNuff We're Not As Big As You Think

Posted August 2, 2009 at 2:23 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image From time to time I get people asking me "dude, TrueNuff is huge – do you do this for a living." Firstly we're really not that big, and secondly the sad truth is no, we don't do this for a living.

We devote a large portion of our time to these projects but it's always been a labor of love. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to do this for a living or even earn enough from these projects to qualify as a part-time job but currently they don't generate nearly enough income to make that a reality.

More sniveling after the jump...

TrueNuff Beer Popper Video & Shipping Included

Posted July 30, 2009 at 3:44 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
We've gotten a few people asking us what the Beer Poppers are, so we shot this video with a special guest star!

We've also converted all our prices in our shop a single price shipping included regardless of where in the world you order from. We had tons of different options before but we think it was making things confusing so we're hoping this is an elegant solution for a more civilized age.

Like your fathers lightsaber.

TrueNuff Interview: LuvChat

Posted July 27, 2009 at 12:26 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image Moze, myself (and maybe Brando or Rob) will be featured on LuvChat a live webcam powered interview show on YouTube.

The interview will be streamed live this Thursday July 30th, 2009 @ 8PM - 10 PM PST at the LuvChat website so set your watches, magic decoder rings or whatever you need to do if you want to see our ugly mugs talk and squak. We'll do a countdown as we approach the event on our Twitter & Facebook pages pages so you can't say we didn't do anything for you - geeze. The interview will be semi-interactive, we'll be taking calls and crap. They have a call in number at the site so get ready!

If you can't make it the show will end up on the LuvChat archives at YouTube. Also if you're an Aussie (we a few "Aussie Acolytes" in the forums) and it's too late or early for you we're working on another interview that will better match your timezone - more details on that later!

This LuvChat show might be our "rise" to fame - they're sponsored by dick pills!

TNTV TrueNuff on TV thanks to TellyTopia!

Posted July 26, 2009 at 12:43 AM by Threeboy in TNTV
Image We've been getting notifications that TrueNuff.tv videos are making it onto television thanks to TellyTopia & i2TV! They bring internet videos to TV using a cable and IPTV network.

If you live in any of their service areas and happen to sub to their services keep an eye out for Bigger Man & Waiter - Traditional Pork Roast on the picture box. They seem to favor our mini's but hopefully one day they'll feature our longer sketches. TellyTopia was also kind enough to feature us in a press release they released a couple days ago.

We're working on a TV show called "TrueNuff Internet" - okay, not really.

TrueNuff Facebook Fanpages

Posted July 25, 2009 at 12:29 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Image Our Facebook Group has gotten the boot, we're now bumpin' Facebook fanpages - they're actually useful.

These somewhat-new "Facebook Fanpages" allow us to interact with you guys better.

  • TrueNuff - community updates, blogs and merchandise updates.
  • TrueNuff.tv - our video related updates.
  • TrueNuff Comic - comic related updates, I've been posting rough sketches of comics currently in progress.

They let us post status updates and notifications that you guys can post comments to on the spot. The notifications are easier to get out because it pulls specially selected tweets from our twitter accounts. So it's easier for us to update you guys when we release content and it's easier for you to give us comments and feedback on the spot. It's win/win - high fives and hand jobs all around!

TrueNuff We're Bringin Buddies Back (Yeah!)

Posted July 19, 2009 at 7:47 PM by Threeboy in TrueNuff
Some of you who have been around for a while may have remembered TrueNuff Comic's failed "Buddy" program. Basically if anyone donated to TrueNuff Comic got "buddy status" in the forums.

Image "Buddy status" gave supporters a neat badge beside their username in the forums as well as access to a private discussion forum and a "Behind The Panels" forum where they could read about the comic development (like a DVD commentary track, but with comics).

The "Behind the Panels" forum isn't going anywhere and if you donate or buy a shirt you won't get any magical privileges other than the "buddy" badge that shows up beside your forum posts. We're basically opening up the buddy badge to anyone who supports our projects in a "money" kind of way (we love making comedy, but it's hard to pay the bills with laughs).

So If you donated or bought a shirt in the past or if you donate or buy merchandise in the future you can request a buddy tag (the best way is to private message me in the forums) and you'll have a reminder you kick-ass!

Also if you have any ideas for future badges, let us know in the comments.

Thanks Buddies!
