    My private Labyrinth Screening

    This summer I've been teaching at a theatre-themed summer camp, and doing some of the technical stuff as well. The show the kids put on required a projection for a couple scenes, and so the camp owner (who is also a public school teacher) borrowed a big expensive projector from the school...

    Elmo in Grouchland

    Am I the only one who actually liked this movie? I mean, for a Sesame Street production it was pretty good. Certainly refreshing after that dreadful Big Bird movie. Mandy Patinkin really seemed to get into the role, even though it was basically a live-action version of Dick Dastardly. The...

    Advance notice for tv appearances

    Does anyone know of a good reliable resource to find out about tv appearances before they happen? GMA and SNL just snuck up on me this month, and I'd like to stay in the loop. Especially for late night tv gigs, its fun to see what the Muppets do when they're allowed to get a little extra...
