    I return and Music

    Hey Group, I haven't posted since January of this year (has it been that long?) so I thought I'd drop by and see what's new. I'm totally jazzed by the release of Season One of the Muppet Show and Fraggle Rock on DVD. I can't buy them just yet, since I'm going on a trip to England next...

    New movies coming out...

    There's something about Joaquin Phoenix that's just creepy. I can't watch him. However, Bridget Jones and the Edge of Reason is coming out I think at Christmas. They're promising another great sissy fight between Colin Firth and Hugh Grant! Jennifer

    Muppety License Plates

    Does anyone have any Muppety licene plate frames or a vanity plate? All I have is a Kermit on my antenna. And he's getting pretty grungy from freeway driving..... Jen

    Avenue Q wins Best Musical, Score and Book

    Agreed. It was the best Tony show in years. Although, I did miss the behind the scenes bits at the beginning about the costumes, set design, etc. I guess they did away with it to make more time for the theatrical numbers. Can't complain too much. I didn't think Avenue Q had a chance. I thought...

    Avenue Q Not Touring After All

    Today on Playbill.com it was announced that Avenue Q will not tour as previously expected. http://www.playbill.com/news/article/86723.html It will have a "permanent" home in Las Vegas. This is a bummer because a lot of folks hoping it would come to their town will miss out. I've been...

    Harry Potter Fate

    With Rowling's dedication to using traditional storytelling structure, I think maybe Harry may die and then be reborn in some way like many mythic heroes (even Buffy!). I don't think he'll end up dead for good. Jen

    Help Spyware infestation

    Muppet related license plate frames I'm thinking of getting a license plate holder that says "Life's like a movie, write your own ending." Does anyone else have a muppet related license plate frame? Jen

    Help Spyware infestation

    I seem to have been infested by spyware. It has screwed up my settings, including here at MC. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of it? Jen

    Just saw Little Shop and Ave Q

    I just got home from NY. We saw Wicked, Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors. First Little Shop: The plant was definitely spectacular. I can't say a lot without giving a lot away, but it was very impressive. I wanted to wait at the stage door and meet the puppeteers, but I didn't think...

    Just finished the book and saw the musical I finished the book last week right before my NY vacation. I wanted to read it because we had tickets to the musical. The musical version veers wildly from the book, but I think they did a great job of boiling down a book that tends to ramble. They...

    Harry Potter, no family in Goblet

    I saw the Azkaban trailer. Looks great! Are they getting new kids for Goblet? And will Jason Isaacs back as Lucius Malfoy? That dude has got to be one of the best bad guys ever! Jen

    The Phantom Tollbooth

    I read the book in a Children's Lit course and I loved it! The word play had me laughing so hard tears were falling from my eyes. I couldn't believe I'd never found it when I was a kid. I didn't know there was a movie. I'll have to be on the lookout for it. Jen

    Your Thoughts: The Street We Live On

    Excuse me. Perhaps I should have qualified my statement and said that "some" or "many" parents don't know the difference between educational and entertainment television. To say no parent is that dumb is over-reaching in some cases. Just because people have children that doesn't...

    Is anyone interested in a great books thread?

    Al Franken's Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them was roll on the floor hysterical one moment and rage-inducing the next. The man has a gift for parody and irony that has managed to turn me Kermit-green with envy. Interestingly, Franken sites all of his sources, which is something many...

    Your Thoughts: The Street We Live On

    I used to teach preschool and I too was disturbed that so few kids watched Sesame Street. I even had one parent tell me that they didn't watch Sesame Street. Her daughter was a "Disney girl." My head actually exploded when she said that. I kid you not. There were brains on the bulletin...

    I want a Muppet Movie Sing Along

    Over on Tough Pigs there's a story about a Muppet Movie sing along. How fun would that be? There's going to be a Wizard of Oz sing along at my local performing arts center. There are some people from work trying to arrange a group to go. It seemed way too hokey to me, then I read about...

    MC Book Of The Month Discussion

    I like the idea of The Wizard of Oz. It's a classic, so it should be at everyone's library, or easy to get through inter-library loan and someone mentioned it's on the internet. Maybe we could go through the Muppet-related books? Treasure Island and A Christmas Carol for starters? Then...

    JHC and HIT establish worldwide distribution and production venture

    That would be sort of extreme, wouldn't it? If you're talking about the Muppet movies that are already out on video, DVD, etc, Disney would gain absolutley nothing by spending all the money to edit existing work. The characters are in the movies. End of story. It would also be horribly...

    The Passion of the Christ

    I've been staying way, way, WAY out of this discussion, mostly because I've had it at work and I walk away feeling like I just beat my head against the wall. However, statements like the one I quoted from Skeet make me want to scream and beat someone ELSE'S head against a wall. Clearly...

    JHC and HIT establish worldwide distribution and production venture

    I'd imagine that Kevin Clash and the rest of the puppeteers are paid on a contracted per-project basis. Sesame Street pays him to do Elmo, and Disney would pay him to preform Clifford. Kind of like a movie star. One studio pays for the actor to do one role, but that doesn't preclude him from...
