    Hey everybody! I started a new little site o' fun called Boomerang Fish. It isn't much yet but I hope it will make up for the graphically challenged tough pigs and the opinion-challenged Muppet Central. Plus it'll have a fan art section and a photo gallery. Those shouldn't be hard so I'll promise ya that. Anywho, it's on geocities so you'll see every update I make right away. It's going to be a lot of fun so check it out and I'll let you know when there's some stuff there!

    Boomerang Fish is SO LONELY!

    Ok...just to let you know....

    Boomerang Fish now has a working Links section, a page on my other interests-Yoda, LOTR,The Neverhood, and MYST, a new archive section that is completely empty (can't do anything about it for now! :D) and a FORUM! yes a forum...with one message by me. Well it just so happens that that tiny little message is feelin' down today...and ya know why? because he's got no one to play with! :( Boy don'tcha just wish you could post next to him and make him feel better? Well guess what? You can! go to www.geocities.com/bucketsoffish and click on "forum"! And if you don't...THE SQUIRRELL GETS IT! ;)

    OMG - the fish are so cool. LOL

    I must admit I spent more time make the fish fly around the screen then I did checking out the rest of the site. But it looks really cool!!!!

    Are you accepting submissions for your fan art archive? Maybe, I'll E-mail you some stuff I made (Including a christmas Swedish Chef, a Halloween Muppet Labs, and a picture of Statler and Waldorf... If I can find it...

    fan art

    That'd be fantastic Dr.Tooth! That's exactly what the gallery's for, and the more art, the merrier! I'd love it if you'd send me some pics. I'm going to add my email to the site tonight*bangs head* I can't believe I didn't think of that!

    BTW, thanks Amy! I spent a long time editing a photo of a bunch of fish and then rotated them so that when they trail around they look like they flop in the air. I was in a really good mood for the rest of the day, and I appreciate the feedback.

    muppet pics

    Thanks a lot! I'm pondering whether I'll need muppet pics or not...you see I had this really great but hard idea to have all these different character pics as buttons for all the different pages...but that was just too hard and content is more important right now...I think that in a while ( a couple months maybe) I'll redo the graphics on the site. :)

    Great stuff. Hope to see more articles up in the future! I must have played with that fish thing for 5 minutes! :)

    BTW - you list MC as having no opinions. We have many fan written articles, reviews and editorials and a forum to express opinions. Anyone can submit an idea/article by going to: http://www.muppetcentral.com/articles/submit.shtml

    Just wanted to clear that up. King of shocked me to see that. LOL! We are also working on several other projects at the moment.

    Love your site. It's about time Lew got his own website!

    Re: C'irdan

    I think the reason MC is having a lack of editorial is because people aint sending none in! Hehe

    Btw, whose thug enough to start a Ned Shimmelfinny fan appreciation (*cough* Doomsday cult *cough*) site?
    I just need to grab the domain name

    Muppet Central

    Sorry about being so strong with my words...I guess I should rewrite that...well the thing is, muppet central is the big fan base that's supposed to be perfect and good for everyone, but to do that you have to tone down your opinions and reviews a lot so that you don't completely oppose someone's opinion of something. That's not a bad thing at all, I just think that my site will be a little bit more "risky" I guess you could say...I want to voice my opinion, and it's not like I'm going to insult people or stuff like that, I'm just going to be a bit more...extreme about the whole business, whether it's good or bad. It's kind of a way for me to control my muppet-fan energy. So I apologize for being so rude about MC, and I'll change it right away. I'm very grateful for everybody's feedback and I think it'll make my site a lot better in general. :)

    And thanks everyone for being so nice about my site! Muppetfans are generally very nice people I've noticed...a bit eccentric (heh, just look at ME!), but nice indeed.

    Mutual respect and appropriate language is all we ask. The idea that you have to tone down thing isn't really true.

    Do love the site though. :)

    Ok, I put the swedish chef pic up and gave a short but nice comment and geocities kept freezing so I couldn't put a post up on the front page about it...but tomorrow I will! Looks great.

    Jamie-sorry about all this...I guess I'm just more opinionated than most. Please don't take any offense over this as none was meant. I think Muppet Central is the best site for muppet fans out there and probably will always be, and I love all of your work with the graphics on this site, they are truly amazing. I will stick to my stance though, it IS really entertaining to read tough pigs because of all the quirks in Danny's personality. :) So I'm sorry If I sounded like I was dissing muppet central. I changed what I wrote on my site for ya. And do you think you could add me to the links page on Muppet Central? That'd be great. :)

    The forum's kinda dumb and I'm hoping to sign up somewhere else to get a new one...it's the kind of forum with a single page and users can change their names whenever they want to whatever they want no matter who else has that name...it's going to be bad if the forum's popular... could someone help me out by suggesting a free forum-making site for me? That'd be great.

    PHEW! I'm done. (almost. ;))

    BTW..beaker...html is really a lot easier than it looks...if you email me (there's a link on my site) I'll teach you...it's incredibly simple. It's mostly the "vocabulary" that's tricky...you learn the vocab over time.

    Oh, I didn't mean it to be an either/or sort of thing. Both forums have validity. I don't look at other sites as competition. They offer different sorts of things.

    Just wanted to make sure that you feel comfortable stating your opinions around here. You wrote that MC had no opinions which isn't the case. We have many - on the forum and on the site. And it isn't just one opinion. Even MC critical posts are permitted here.

    It was user opinion that picked the Ode to Rowlf winner and there have been several editorials by staff and forum members about the Muppets. Even some recent ones. We don't really have one person's opinion taking priority over the entire site. I can understand if that's what you meant.

    Anyway, didn't take it negatively. Just as a misunderstanding. :)

    BTW - you should totally put a link in your signature so people can more easily get to your site.

    Muppet Central

    Thanks Jamie...I was just exaggerating, that's all. I think it was just because most of your news articles are about business and I was subconciously comparing you to toughpigs again. Just disregard the whole thing. It was way out of line to say that muppetcentral lacks opinions. And I'd still really like to be added to the links page! ;)

    Thanks Jamie.

    P.S. I was talking about my forum...not yours...I don't know anything about making forums and I chose a bad site to make one from...so I'm not comparing anybody.

    And thanks for the tip! Will do. Look out below! :)

    Submit your site to Phillip and he will probably give you a link. That's something that everyone can do.

    MC tries to be inclusive. I agree, a lot of the articles have been corporate lately. We are working on several projects. Most of the Muppet news these days is on the corporate front, but we did have Quinn's wonderful article and others are encouraged to send in their stuff too. I also recently wrote an editorial about Muppets and widescreen (finally getting everything I needed to say out of my system). LOL!

    I hope we have more "Ode to" contests. It's great to have more fan talent around the site and the forum. I really enjoyed reading all of the entries. There wasn't a bad one in the bunch.
