    I won't be able to attend the Thursday June 21st one in San Francisco, so Im hoping Goelz will at least be at the Friday June 22nd one(Gonzo in tow or not)
    Im guessing more people would be able to attend the Friday night one.

    Well I guess it depends on what they're going to be doing. If they're just going to be introducing the film or doing a Q&A or something then a puppet on their arm isn't really necessary. I went to the last Henson legacy event at the Museum of TV and Radio and Jerry Nelson was in attendance without any of his characters.
  3. Anybody going to the Dark Crystal screening in Santa Monica, CA on June 16? Seriously, why can't skybus run those $10 tickets to the places you really wanna go? lol

    Dave Goelz in San Francisco

    The "Muppets 101" program (Thurs, Jun 21 @ 7:30 and Fri, Jun 22 @ 7:30) will feature personal appearances by Dave Goelz. Dave will be hosting a lecture and a Muppet clip show, and will lay out the entire history of the Muppets. And rumor has it that Dave may bring some puppets with him.
  5. I saw that too! That's so freaking cool!

    Excellent. Unfortunately I cant make Thursday, but Friday will definately be doable. Will both nights be the same program, or do you think Friday will be part 2? Im hoping they have the best stuff for Friday^^

    Right on. Yeah post all the details^^ Im going to be in San Francisco that night, but going to a concert with friends I cant get out of.

    I think May 2003 when Carol Spinney came with Oscar to a book store was the last time there was a Muppety presence in norcal.

    Not neccessarily, R. Again, I was at two different events at the Museum of TV and Radio aka The Paley Center and one event had Muppeteers with no puppets, and one did.

    Dave and Gonzo!

    Yep, Gonzo made a brief appearance with Dave (who was there the whole time and sat right in front of me!) thursday evening at San Francisco Yerba Buena's Jim Henson Legacy event, Muppets 101.

    Don't have much time so here's the skinny. 7:30-10:00 (and they mean 10:00 on the dot) in the cozy and intimate screening room. :concern:

    About 6 clip segments (introduced by master Muppeteer Dave Goelz) spanning from Sam and Friends (take note at the pork-flavored bacon ad from Eskay) through Ed Sullivan. the Sesame pitch reel, classic Muppet pilot clips and ending with the Muppet Show bumpers and sketches. Yes, much of the footage has been seen by uber-fans, but is great to see again with intros and insights by Mr. Goelz. And there are a few clips I had never seen.

    At the end of the program, Dave takes questions and then Dave and Gonzo take questions. Word of warning - steer clear from the nose. He he he. The blue dude is very self-conscious about the nose. I wanted to know the particular color, however it appears that Palisades (from Black Tux Gonzo - the version in which I helped a bit - and on) got it fairly close.

    Dave confirmed a movie script for the Muppets, educational televised interstitials to introduce younger fans to the Muppets and soon to come Muppet webisodes. Not much detail was given. He did mention (answering Ian, my partner's, question) the first few years at Disney was difficult, but is excited with the great experiment with now being inside and part of the actual Disney studios.

    Gonzo is much tinier in person, but oh so attractive. It's weird (and a privalege) to have the fella look right at you. Now that I have met Gonzo, I am the happiest frogboy in the world! Oh, and my EM Kohl's shirt came. Small is a bit bigger than expected, but it's sooooo cool! :cool:

    WARNING: This event was sold-out last night. Do not expect to get tickets at the door! Pre-order if possible.

    My (very lovely) partner Ian took some photos of Dave and Gonzo. He also recorded a very brief Mpeg (a few seconds long) of Gonzo explaining why he can't travel through Petaluma, California. It was dark, but the photos came out okay. I'll see about uploading a couple. :concern:

    My life is now complete. Even Gonzo finds me a bit strange. He he!:confused: :cool:

    Do you think Dave Goelz will possibly travel out to be at the Huntington one? Or any other Muppeteer?

    Like, have they solidified any guests, or does everyone have to wait until July 1st before they reveal it?
