Stay tuned for an important (okay, not so much) message from your Minion Master, following the usual crass commercialism.

Check the sidebar to your right for our video trailer! A cool way to introduce your friends to the Minions! Send them here, or link directly to it on YouTube at the following URL:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oDpDiP_LB20&eurl=&v3

Join the Minions reminder email list or we will send a presidential candidate to kiss all your babies!* It's free, it's easy, and you'll never miss a Minions at Work cartoon (or if you do, it won't be our fault!)

*Actually, we're just going to send the Penguin in a red-white-and-blue tie. We don't have the heart to tell him, that as a citizen of Antarctica, he isn't eligible to run. (Do you? Man, you ARE evil!)

A ship-wide announcement from your Minion Cruise Director:

Greetings, Relaxibots!


"Minions Under the Sea" month continues. Speaking of Vacations, in a couple of days we're off to California and the San Diego Comicon, and running our evil schemes by remote-control, so forgive any irregularities. If we get time, we'll post some pictures and reports from the field.

Until then, we did have visitors at the Minions HQ this weekend. It was my birthday Saturday, and we had friends come from near and far for a barbecue. I had a great time, but somehow forgot to take any pictures. Later on, however, our friends Rob Vagle and Ximena Clearley came in and had their pictures taken with some resident celebrities. By which, I of course don't mean Chris and I.



Actually, Rob and Ximena are engaged, and they first hooked up a few years back helping us hang sheet-rock at what is now the Minions studio, so this is a very cool thing.

While we were sitting around talking, they were witness to the creation of the Next Minion. No, you can't see them. The next Minion doesn't have a name yet. So (this was my friend Sean Prescott's idea) we're going to have a poll that lets YOU name the Minion! Details after I get back from my trip.

Also, Sean and I are in the early stages of cooking up some new interactive Minions madness, and we need your help for that as well. Got a question for one of our characters? Send it to them care of me at j-steven-york@sff.net.

Anyway, off to San Diego. Back as we can be next week.

- Steve
