    Mm, I know the feeling. -_- I get called "scene" because I... -get this- ... have friends who are (if you wanna use some form of stereotype) metalheads. How weird is that? :confused: And I get called "emo" because some of my friends have bouts with depression and also... because... I like... gothic clothing. O_O *Sigh* Never been called "grudge", though, but I do like the music genre. And I like punk fashion. =D (Some of it, I'm not a big fan of the 'I Hate Pink Floyd' tops, lol :p)

    *Raises hand* I kinda wish that I was... somewhat decent at some form of sport, just fer fitness and the like- but I'm REALLY un-co. -_- But I guess we all have our strengths and weaknesses. O_<

    10 Signs you are Em (Me. Haha, palindromes!)
    1. You are a nerd
    2. When you get bored, you look up information on the Muppets and can therefore name half of the muppeteers
    3. You want to be a film maker/writery/acting person
    4. You spend too much time on YouTube and make videos about the things that bother you
    5. You contemplate making a shipping video of your friend and Kermit the Frog as a birthday gift to them.
    6. You hate politics because they make people angry
    7. Sesame Street rumors like the one about cookie monster becoming veggie monster annoy you to the point where you make a youtube video about them
    8. You hate gangsta-ness, preppiness, twilight, the hills and miley cyrus
    9. You cried at the studio dc thing because it was just so horrible and Animal would never flirt with Miley Cyrus because he gave his heart to Rita Moreno because she smashed his head in with symbols.
    10. You have no problems performing in front of people you don't know, but have a fear of talking to them.

    I feel like we should do a "10 signs you're Jim Henson." That would be easy, because most of those would be "You are awesome."

    number 8 is me exactly! It can be frustrating...especially when people point it out that you say sorry a lot...it's like...I KNOW, I'm sorry.
     
  6. Kiki

    Kiki Active Member

    Yep! Well, fer 10, I once wore ray-bans with clear lenses and my friend said I looked like Garth. :shifty:
    And fer 6, surprisingly, I love drawing rock-star animals (yes, even dragons, though I do fail at drawing them. My friend is awesome, though). =D

    ...But I do love Acca-Dacca. <333 Not overrated in my opinion.

    Kiki Active Member

    10 more signs that you're Kiki...

    1. You have an obsession with collecting cans and bottles ("Me cans! Me precious antique cans!")

    2. You're so un-co that you often find yourself losing your balance by just standing (!).

    3. You love mucking around with make-up, even if you don't really wear it on a regular basis.

    4. You like soft-toys. Get over it.

    5. You still love "kiddie" shows. And...?

    6. You have this weird thing about going, "hey! Wanna see if this film synchs to Dark Side of The Moon?" at the beginning of certain movies, out of the blue.

    7. You like pronouncing croissant "gwazonn". It confuses people at the bakery. :confused:

    8. You smile a lot more than you prolly should.

    9. You don't recall ever downloading a song. And you still but records religously.

    10. You find it very hard to get rid of things. You find scraps and bits 'n bobs (basically rubbish, yeah) very interesting, and seeing how they could come in handy for art and the like.

    Sgt Floyd Well-Known Member

    2, 4, 5, 9, and 10 fit me too :p

    Even though I dont have and cant afford a record player, I am glad that records seem to be coming back...(they had a record of Appetite for Destruction when I went to Best buy along with a few other records). I just cant see myself downloading songs though. And it might have something to do with having dial up, buuut I'd still rather have the physical disk...

    P.S.

    Its not that I dont like AC/DC, I do like alot of their songs, I just dont see what makes people so crazy about them...but then again, people could ask me why I am nuts over what I like too (uh...such as my mom not understanding me and my dad's obsession with the Ramones XD)

    Kiki Active Member

    Whoa! I thought I was the only one. XP People never get me when I just lose balance... heh.

    Lol, don't worry, I see where you're coming from. Even at my school AC/Dc have a big fanbase. Mind you, they're a bit silly about it. They'll know, like, only a couple of songs of their's and they'll be like, "ZOMG I'M SUCH A MASSIVE AC/DC FAN!" They're actually touring soon, and I might be going. Fingers crossed! =D

    I have dial-up too (hi-five! =D), so that might have something to do with the fact that I don't download because it takes far too long. My brother downloads, though. But he just doesn't buy albums often and he's on the computer quite a bit so I guess that works, while a large majority of the time I'm in my bedroom or lurking around the house. XD I /used/ to have this really awesome-looking record player, well- I still do, but I doesn't work anymore, is all. I used it fer a bit, but it broke down. D= I've used my Dad's fer a year or so now, it's in my room. I also have his stereo and stuff. He bought it in the mid 70s, and it's been working ever since. It means a lot to me, because I grew up with it as a little kid and it's just always been there- and it works perfectly. =D
    I tihnk it's great that records are coming back, too. Well- I guess they never really "went out", hey? But now they're releasing new albums on vinyl and re-releasing stuff, too. Metallica is re-releasing their stuff on record (obviously they had it on their originally but..) and I even saw AC/DC's 'Black Ice' on vinyl! :excited: But they're re-releasing some awesome stuff on record, which I think is brill! :excited: CD's I love, too. Because they're convient and like a record they're a physical thing, they have a good vibe. :cool:

    1. You'll go to see a movie just to see the short film before it, a cameo from an actor you adore or a specific trailer.

    Haha! So glad i'm not the only one that does the puppet thing. But sometimes i'll just do it in my room or off to the side where no one can see me. But it's really embarrassing when somebody notices you have your arm raised up in the air, and your hand is moving, and your just mumbling to yourself in a silly voice like a crazy person.
     
  14. D'Snowth

    D'Snowth Well-Known Member

    I don't always raise my arm up in the air when I do it (well, not too often, but occasionally), but my hand is almost always lip-syncing at random . . . I guess you could call that an "occupational hazard"?

    On the plus side, in recent years, it's spread to my left hand, and now I'm actually able to do passable lip-syncing with my left hand, but obviously, it's still not as polished or natural as my right hand.

    The funny thing is Caroll once said, "you left hand is rather stupid when you're right-handed," and I can attest to that in reverse as well: I've worked rods left-handed so long that if I try puppeteering left-handed, my right hand grabs the rods and are like "does not compute."
     
  15. Pig's Laundry

    Pig's Laundry Well-Known Member

    Yeah, it's usually just random lip-syncing, but I was just saying that sometimes I raise my hand when i'm alone.

    And on the subject of performing with the left hand, I noticed a few behind the scenes photos from the 70s with Muppeteers performing more than one character at a time, during group shots. I guess they must've been pretty low on puppeteers back then.

    Yeah, I'm pretty much right-handed all the way with puppeteering. I can't manipulate the mouth very well with my left hand, and I'm just so used to doing it the opposite way. Coincidentally, it happens the same with live-hand puppets, too - it's easier to use my left hand for the arm and right hand for the mouth, vise versa.

    Anywho...

    10 Signs That You Might Be Schfifty
    1. You've got an arsenal of more than 300 VHS tapes.
    2. You're a big game show fan, and love watching them over other genres.
    3. You don't like when people swear in front of you.
    4. You used to watch flash cartoons online all the time back in junior high.
    5. Whose Line Is It Anyway? is the funniest show on television, in your opinion.
    6. You've got perfect pitch.
    7. You've had a crush on Baby Gonzo from Muppet Babies for several years.
    8. You sometimes need someone to repeat what they're saying since you have extreme hearing.
    9. You still occasionally play games on your N64, PlayStation, GameCube, etc.
    10. Astronomy is your favorite branch of science.
