The Residents
 
If you like your music adventurous, you’ll probably get a huge kick out of Noise Park, a Tumblr that features South Park versions of many avant-garde, experimental, and generally out-there musicians. Whoever is making these charmingly made the decision to follow his or her own esoteric musical tastes, which is a nice way of saying that a good many of the subjects are a bit obscure (Blevin Blectum, Moth Cock, Rotten Milk, etc.), which has the effect of turning it all into an inside inside joke of sorts.

But a lot of the subjects are quite well-known, covering the more cerebral end of the musical spectrum (Kraftwerk, Beefheart, Residents). I spent a fair amount of time trying to come up with a plausibly minimalist South Park episode plot involving Terry Riley, but I failed. Then I switched to Throbbing Gristle and my brain exploded.

Some of the images on the blog are actually reworkings of The Wire magazine covers, which is a good indication of where the tastes run.

Here’s a little cut from last night’s South Park—episode 3 of season 18 titled “The Cissy”—where Randy shows his son Stan how it’s really done in the music world today.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker nail it as usual. Nail it.

‘The Giant Beaver Of Southern Sri Lanka’: Early short from ‘South Park’ co-creator, Trey Parker

“Knock, knock.”

“Uh… who’s there?

“A giant beaver who’s about to kill us both!!!”

“The Giant Beaver Of Southern Sri Lanka,” is a 1989 student short made by at the University of Colorado in 1989, by future South Park co-creator Trey Parker.

It will probably come as no surprise from the title that the short film features a Godzilla-style rampaging beaver. It’s not complete, but I don’t think it really matters!

From that information you’ll know whether or not to proceed, I suppose.

According to Redditor lkmeq, this Eric Cartman IRL isn’t a set-up, and is indeed what this Chicago-based gentleman actually looks like. In fact, the man in question, apparently is constantly catching folks covertly snapping photos of him on their phones.    

The manipulated photo with the South Park background was done by the fine folks on reddit.

It’s Freej: Dubai’s Answer To South Park

Meet the stars of Freej, Dubai’s first 3-D animated series.  If you’re wondering which of the above four grannies plays the “Cartman,” rest assured these ladies get nowhere near Satan, J-Lo, or even Casa Bonita.  The humor here instead “tackles hot topics like wedding traditions and bribery in a distinctly Arab way, sometimes merely hinting at issues.”

But this is not to say series creator, 31-year-old Mohammed Saeed Harib, shies completely away from button-pushing.  In Freej’s first season, an episode alluded to Islamic extremism.  It was pulled from repeat broadcasts, but managed to later wind up on DVD.
