South Park's Matt Stone
Trey Parker and Matt Stone laid the foundations for an animated empire with "The Spirit of Christmas", an incredibly crude animated short they made with pieces of cut-out construction paper in 1995. Out of that came the Comedy Central show "South Park", which debuted in 1997 and which is now the longest-running and highest-rated show in the history of Comedy Central. Even more remarkable than the show's ratings success has been its durability; in 14 seasons, it's never fallen off.
A huge part of the show's success has always been the music. Parker and Stone have written insane numbers of songs for "South Park", and their songs almost always achieve three very difficult things: They're consistently crudely and absurdly funny, they're almost always catchy enough to get stuck in your head, and they always move the plots of their episodes forward. Pitchfork recently spoke with Stone about his favorite musical moments in the show's history, as well as what it was like to work with Radiohead, Isaac Hayes, and Primus.

How did I miss this? I mean I'm actually slightly stunned at the moment that I haven't seen this until now. It was just posted last April?... hm. Where the heck was I in April? :/
Anyway I have to comment because this was quite an interesting lil interview with the ole Matty. ... But Cartman doing a "popular song" every few months? As wonderful as that sounds, I think it would get a little, boring. .. I like the made up songs better, I think.
What I also enjoyed about this interview, which is what I enjoy about all their interviews, is how much they admire each other while they're suppose to be talking about themselves. Good grief. Matt's gonna end up naming his first born Trey. .. Just Trey. Even if it doesn't really make any sense. They're constantly giving each other all the credit. .. Matt a little more so. He likes to shine the light on his papa Trey. 'Cause Trey's oldest so he's the.. never mind.
Anyway, cool interview! : ) Thank you for sharing!!! It makes me all excited over what type of musical stuff we'll hear in the 2nd part of season 14. YAY!
