Your visit is important to us. Please hand your wallet to the nearest Minion and stare mindlessly at the screen for a message from your Minon Master, following the usual commercial interruptions.
Minions at work is inadequately supported by your purchases from our web stores and our advertisers. Help us bleed green just a little more slowly by purchasing tee-shirts, buttons, calendars, hats, undies (we kid not!), and other fine Minions at Work items at one of the following stores.
While waiting for your impending doom, pick up a Minions at Work 2008 Calendar or other great gift:
THE MINION'S LAIR OF MERCHANDISE
"Where all our customers are satisfied, because those are the ones we allow to live!"
NUMBER TWO'S HOUSE OF NAUGHTY
(Oh, come on. You know you want to be naughty!)
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 Minion Number Two and he's just going to bruise the little tyke's face with his gas-mask. This, however, is still better than being kissed by the candidate.)
Greetings, Patient Ones!
Okay, not #100 again. But I was professionally busy over the weekend. I wrote AND sold a new short story called "Boldly Reimagined" to an upcoming hero-themed anthology edited by Denise Little. (See the sidebar for info on "Frontlines" another anthology coming up in May, also edited by Denise, in which Chris and I both have stories, or just follow this link to Amazon.com).
There was also an interesting nibble that could lead to the most exciting Minions-related event yet, but it's WAY premature to say more than that. It could come to nothing. I'll keep you posted.
On the #100 front, the good news is that the sound (unless I've forgotten something) is FINALLY all recorded, and I'm working on the final editing of it. Then I can finish the picture editing. If so, maybe I can finish it this week. If not -- uh -- 99.91 anyone?
This just turned out to be a much bigger project than I expected. I hope it's worth the effort. A lot of people see these YouTube videos, so maybe it will drag some more visitors in here.
As always, drop us a note or comment with your reactions to our cartoons or anything else of interest. Suggestions for our sidebar "evil overlords" and "good names for rock bands" lists are always welcomed.
We also love links from other sites (and will return the favor in our "thanks for the link" section) and any other grass-roots promotion you folks do. Share Minions at Work with your family, friends, and your other message boards and mailing lists. We appreciate it so much that we'll hold off dispatching our atomic robot dragons to burn down your garage. For this week, anyway. Thanks.
See you next week.
