Mo' computers mo' problems...
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!
More on merch after a quick flight to Oktoberfest...
If this beer popper stuff doesn't make sense to you check our original video that parodies the original Slap Chop infomercial - then check out the Slap Chop techno remix too.
You're gonna love his nuts.
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...
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.
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!

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.

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!
Other social media musings after the cut...
"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.
