Muppet Friday?

No not exactly but I just found something on one of my favorite blogs “The Muppet Mindset” that brought the fondest of memories to mind.  It is a post about the 1996 Christmas special – “The Christmas Toy”.  Read the post here.

I don’t know about you, but as a kid I truly and honestly believed that my stuffed animals came “alive” at night or whenever I was not in the room.  I often wondered about the kinds of games they played and the fun that they had during their special time.  Call me crazy, but that was one of the wonders of childhood!

If you haven’t had the chance to see this…. if you have kids — or not — do yourself a favor and watch it.  It will warm your heart and brighten any bad day this Christmas season.  Amazon has it for just over $6.50.  Just one more gem from Jim Henson….it’s definitely worth it!

Muppet Monday!

As the holidays approach and life gets busier and busier, my posts might be reduced to just a few a week but I promise to try and make them good!

I found this video this morning that combines three of my favorite things — Thanksgiving, Food Network and the Muppets!

 

Muppet Monday: Forget You

It’s a little late but better late than never!  Over the weekend it was really chilly here in the area.  When we have temperatures like that, it makes me just want to stay inside and sit by the fire.  So I did put the fireplace on and watched “The Muppets” from On Demand.  This is my favorite clip from that movie….Camilla and her chickens singing Cee Lo Green’s “Forget You”.  I think I actually like her version better!

Muppet Monday!

Ok so I lied — I’m still working on the day 2 report.  But, in the meantime I thought I’d better throw in a Muppet Monday since I missed last week.  I’m still in a Vegas sort of mood so I went to YouTube and searched “Muppets in Las Vegas”…..this is what I got.  I do remember this clip and I love the way she sings this but wtf is she wearing??

Muppet Monday: Baby It’s Cold Outside!

When I woke up this morning I was shocked at how cold it was outside.  Apparently we broke an all time record here in the Dallas Ft. Worth area when the temperature hit 39 degrees.  Last time it was that cold this early in the year was in the 1920’s.  To commemorate this, enjoy this little ditty sung by Miss Piggy while she shares the steam room with Russian Ballet dancer Rudolf Nuriev:

 

Muppet Monday: Cårven Der Pümpkîn

I’m a little late on this today but since we are entering my favorite time of year on this October 1st 2012…..I thought this video would be fitting.  If you’ve ever wondered the correct way to carve your pumpkin or make pumpkin pie, maybe the Sweedish chef can help you out a bit!

 

Just Because I Can

This is what you get when I want to be lazy and I don’t have anything interesting to say….no cool dream last night, no crazy kid story and nothing is pissing me off….so this is what you get: a music video.

But not just any music video…a music video by Fun..  The radio played the crap out of their song “We Are Young” and I really liked it…I thought it was very reminiscent of Queen. This new song I only heard once and I was instantly in love.  I have now bought the whole album on my iTunes.  Who are these guys?  They are f*cking awesome and where have they been hiding?  Their music makes me want to go work out (and that is a miraculous feat in itself)…just because it’s such perfect music to work out to. Either work out or do some Irish dancing…one or the other. How can you not love songs with bagpipes?
