Happy Tuesday night everybody! Tonight is a very special night here at South Park because when we leave here, the conclusion of the last three weeks of work with The Coon and Friends will be finished! The artwork has been amazing so far and I know for a fact the episode will not disappoint.

This weeks blog is about old PA Nate. I thought it would be good to show some respect to our elders. Nate was an integral part of the South Park production office for like 27 years. In fact rumor has it that he was a PA on this show before Matt and Trey ever even conceived the idea. Nate, who is now an assistant editor working on our HD project, was kind enough to sit down with me for a little one on one interview.

The following is a transcript of a conversation between APOC Steve and Old PA/ Asst. Editor Nate dated 11/9/10 4:17pm.

S: Please state your name, age and job title for the record.
N: Nate Pellettieri, 31, Assistant Editor HD Project

S: What is your favorite color?for the record.
N: Green

S: What was your favorite thing about working in the production office at South Park studios?
N: Back when I was a PA we used to hide stuff all over that room. Seriously From secret notes to weird pictures there was TONS of stuff hidden in that room. Actually I still think you haven't found the giant "Ass to Ass" sign Tim and I left behind.



S: What are you working on at the moment?
N: I'm finding shots from Episode 201 so that we can remake them in HD for Episode 505

S: Whats youre favorite snack?
N: The little cottage Cheeses that PA Mike gets sometimes. I friggin love them

S: If you could have one pet what would it be and why?
N: If possible I'd get the genetically altered mini Giraffe from theDirectv commercials where that rich euro-fag guy has all the gold stuff. Mainly cause I think it would be awesome to feed that thingBut also cause I want to be like that rich euro-fag guy.

S: Whats your shoe size? For the ladies
N: 10 and a half The half is what makes all the difference.

S: How long have you been working at South Park?
N: I just finished up my 6th year on Halloween

S: Jesus thats a long time. Why are you still here?
N: PASS


S: What is your fondest memory of Matt and Trey?
N: When they gave me money (around 4Gs) from the McRib challenge (a challenge where I had to eat a disgusting amount of McRibs and Starbucks in a short amount of time) Oddly enough I used that money to buy a laptop and Final Cut Pro and in the end that's how I got this editing job now.


S: Tell me something that only you know about South Park?
N: There is a trashcan that sometimes fills with water above the writer's room I always wanted to get it and move it back down but it takes a lot to get up above there and when I switched jobs I never got the chance to get it.

S: Did you watch the premier episode of Conan last night?
N: Yes it was really good Seth Rogen as the first guest wasnt.

S: How many times a day do you think you snap your fingers while roaming the South Park halls?N: I'm guessing I snap my fingers around 200 times a day That's a rough estimate but I look forward to the day when people get scared when they hear the snapping coming up the hallway.


Well there you have it folks, an in-depth update with old PA Nate. Don't you miss him?

Well, until next week Im going to go try and find that bucket of water before there is a small disaster and that ass-to-ass picture.

Adios,

APOC Steve

When he said "to eat a disgusting amount of McRibs and Starbucks in a short amount of time", I keep thinking wow what a mix. :shock: :)

I find it such a strange coincidence that my mom brought home a McRib sandwich for me after I read this. XD Aww now I want one of those mini-giraffes... It was cute. ^_^ I hope all of the secret notes and pictures (when found) get posted on the Production Blog in the future.

I guess the coon saga is a 3 parter (4 for those who include "The Coon") and not a 4 parter. I already expected that, though...

That's about how long I worked as a mailroom lackey a while back. And I found myself asking... myself that same question for the whole last year I was there. My answer was the same too. Nate's job and workplace seems infinitely more interesting though.
And I too have been dying to hear more about the HD project for a while now.

Sounds interesting; Ep. 210: "Terrance and Phillip in "Not Without My Anus"" in HD for 505: "Terrance & Phillip: Behind the Blow"? Cool; Terrance & Phillip in HD. In surround sound AND smell-i-vision (sorry, but it had to be said)

No, I didn't, but I heard about it.

So tomorrow's episode is the end of Coon and Friends for now, huh? Well, it was a great run (Coon and Friends I mean; not South Park :P ). Looking foward to tomorrow night's episode!

Great interview, guys!

Adios

You know, I just realized the other day how much of a gyp the upcoming Prod. Blog can be. Usually we get to hear about what all went on making the previous episode, and get a tease of what's to come in the next, or this case last episode of the run. Then when the 7th or 14th ep is done, everybody scatters to the 4 corners of the earth (I'm guessing within 5 minutes of the episode going to network, leaving papers flying and task-chairs spinning on their axis), and we don't get the chance to hear about the win or hell that occurred making said 7th or 14th episode. Not that I'm saying "You should all eat a dick because, there's not an 8th blog entry per run... blar-blar-blar-blar-blar *smiley-spam, smiley-spam, capslock-hell, etc.*" or anything. I'm just merely making an observation.

I found it right away when I typed McRib on the search above. Very hard to swallow when you see pictures of them drinking the Starbucks and knowing that they had McRibs. :)
