The Muppets video for “Man or Muppet” has me wondering if I am a man… or a muppet

December 10th, 2011 · No Comments

I’ve already made it known (on many, many occasions) how much I loved “The Muppets.” And like previous Muppet movies, this one featured some ridiculously catchy songs — chief among them “Man or Muppet,” a duet featuring Gary (Jason Segel) and Walter (the muppet) deliberating on the question of whether they are each a man […]

My 10 favorite celebrity cameos in Muppets movies

November 26th, 2011 · No Comments

Earlier this week, I posted an excerpt from my interview with “The Muppets” co-writer and lead actor Jason Segel, but that wasn’t all the “Muppets”-related assignments I took on ahead of the film’s premiere. I also compiled a list of my 10 favorite cameos from the Muppets movies over the years. Here’s an excerpt: PETER […]

Talking about the Muppets with Jason Segel…

Monday Mix: Bioshock Infinite, tasty Transformers, retro Muppet posters, and more…

September 19th, 2011 · No Comments

Well, our three-weekend binge on college football concluded with Saturday’s game at West Point, and though it was a less than satisfying finale (for more reasons than just the final score), it’s nice to look at my upcoming calendar and see a few weekends without travel plans. Of course, the absence of travel plans really […]

Friday Wrap-Up: Healthy Thoughts, Doctor Who Muppets, Sexist Ads, and more…

August 19th, 2011 · No Comments

It was a productive week on the homefront, with two screenings (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark) and a fun interview (Elizabeth Olsen from Martha Marcy May Marlene) on top of all of this week’s writing. I’m hoping to cap things off with a trip o the Parkside Lounge […]

Muppets, Muppets, Everywhere… Jim Henson’s Fantastic World at MoMI

August 14th, 2011 · No Comments

Okay, so this weekend was pretty epic, folks. Why? Because it was filled with Muppets! As if we needed another reason to love Astoria, Jessica and I accompanied a few friends (Miss Katieisms & Ronan the Barbarian) to the Museum of the Moving Image last weekend for the “Jim Henson’s Fantastic World” exhibit and a […]
