Part I - Your Studio and You

hellbob!! Look what I found!




From Wikipedia:
"Your Studio and You is a comedy short film created in 1996 by Matt Stone and Trey Parker and commissioned by comedic filmmaker David Zucker. It was to be played at a party Seagram threw for its employees acquired as a result of its Universal Studios take-over. It parodies the style of 1950s educational films such as Duck and Cover, while poking fun at Universal and its talent. It was shot in the Universal Studios backlot, and it runs approximately fourteen minutes.
Upon commissioning the duo to make this film, David Zucker failed to mention that there was no script, so everything was written by Parker and Stone less than an hour before it was shot. The two were up for six and a half days straight filming, the longest they had ever gone without sleeping.
The film is notable in that it was Stone and Parker's first Hollywood gig. Parker has said that "you could probably make a feature film out of the experience of making that movie because it was just two dudes from college suddenly directing Steven Spielberg." This film has still seen no public release as it was intended to be strictly an internal film (indeed, its creators were not even allowed a copy), but copies of the film have surfaced on the internet. Ifilm.com had the video on its site for a limited time. The video was promoted on the site in ad banners. These advertisements included the date that ifilm.com would stop hosting the video."

October morning, little plane on the forest floor
Up on the tv between a rerun and another war
Here in a hotel, trying to make some sense of this
Two thousand miles from my family in minneapolis

Hey senator, i wanna say
All the things you fought for did not die here today
Hey senator, i'm gonna do
All the things i can to live my life more like you lived

A story of a love undivided for thirty-nine years
Strong when it counted through the hard times and the fears
Together forever, that was always what it was about
No hesitation, there was never any doubt

Hey hey sheila, i want to say
All the things you fought for did not die here today
Hey hey sheila, i'm gonna do
All the things i can to live my life more like you
Hey senator, i wanna say
All the things you fought for did not die here today
Hey hey sheila, i'm gonna do
All the things i can to live my life more like you
