Does anyone know where I can get a hold of a copy? I reaaly love to see it.
This might help you
thanks, but I don't think I can help You.
I'd like to see Timepiece too, I've never seen it for sale or anything like that, havent heard anything about except on the world of jim henson documentary. It looks like a pretty funny movie! painting elephants pink, lol
It's never been commercially released (to my knowledge) and if it's ever been aired on TV it was probably prior to VCRs becoming widespread. I'd assume there are bootlegs floating around somewhere if you look hard enough.
If you're ever in NYC or LA both locations of the Museum of Television & Radio have Timepiece in their collection.
Thanks Buck, I'll keep that in mind.
Anybody ever think that Jim might have had a 'thing' about time? There was "Timepiece," and then the song "Tick Tock Sick."
time in it self is a intruiging and difficult concept to grasp
I think everybody at some point thinks about it
Especially in those last few minutes before time to go home from work...
I was just wondering. We realize that you have Timepiece. A few people on here have expressed that they want to see it. You've suggested doing a trade. But what if they don't have anything that you're interested in?
So, how would you suggest that they go about trying to get it?
Part of me wants to be angry because there are so many people on this board who have a lot of material others would like to see. Yet, selling things is just never an option partly because it's technically illegal, but also partly because it's always been thought of as an insult to the one who gathered all their own collection through the years (can be argued both ways about this). For MANY of us, this is just a no win situation.
So, what truly do people recommend? Are others to wait around until someone is kind enough to do a blank tape trade, or will there just be countless specials that the majority of us will never get to see?
I sense some frustration here
I do hear what you are saying. I am in the same situation as everyone else and feel the same as you. Others have stuff that I would like, but because I don't have anything they want from me, we can't do a trade. I'm afraid I don't have any answers.
Trades don't have to be in the form of tapes! Product, or other items, are just as good. I'm trading off one of the 2 Mahna puppets I made for some tapes!! There's no rule stating that tapes have to be traded for tapes. There's other forms of 'payment,' too. Any Palisades figures you need? Old toys, magazines, books, coloring books? What would you trade someone for a copy of Of Muppets and Men? Lots of ideas tehre for trading, folks!
If you look in my trading rules I do say that I may accept Muppet memorabilia instead of tapes and I do have items that are on my wish list - please take a look! If you have any puppets you are prepared to trade please let me know - I'm always up for puppets. Please e-mail me
You could trade just about anything! even non muppet items if the other person is also interested but I wouldnt go asking for a tape trade of a muppet production for an adult video. (not that I have any) I wouldnt go trading for a kick in the teeth either.
umm... its on the Henson web site (www.henson.com under film) but heres alink anyway http://www.henson.com/video/Timepiece1.mov k? hope that helps!
That's what I was doing with my Mahna I made, looking for 4 different items of interest of mine: Ghostbusters, Blues Brothers, Muppets or Peanuts.
I read somewhere that Jim was afraid of time. That's why so many of his projects revolved around it. He was afraid of growing old, and some think that's why he died so young. He didn't want to get older than that.
Nah, that would have been suicide then.
Then again, if you don't go to the doctor when you're sick...
You know what? I wonder why with 5 kids, wife, and all those friends and crew members around why SOMEONE didn't just force him to go to the doctor?? Heck, I'd have paid for his doctor bills, man!!
