    Marky, I look at Fozzie Bear (Kevin) posting his disclaimer totally different.

    Many from this forum participated in those series of auditions and no one knew any info as to the results of them. Kevin came into some info and was kind enough to share it with all of us to put many of our minds to rest as to should people keep waiting to be called or not from these auditions.

    The result of Kevin having shared Muppet news with us is that he appears to have been flooded with people seeking source info that he had no knowledge of. So posting a disclaimer in an open forum like this makes perfect sense for he can get back on with his life.

    I for one thank him for posting the little info he had, as we all should.
    Thanks Kevin.
  3. Vertigo:

    Hey! I was also called to attend the workshop being held in Orlando. I was wondering if you wanted to chat over email. I have some additional info that you might be interested in. :concern::confused:

    Hey could you PM me your email.
  5. Hey Vertigo:

    I sent you an email and I would send you a PM, however, MC doesn't allow people to PM unless they have posted 10 times. Talk to ya soon.

    Hey Vertigo and BluBeakedWeirdo, congrats on moving on to the next round!

    Where did you two guys audition? NY, Los Angeles or Toronto?
    And were you part of the agency day auditions or the general public auditions?

    I almost started to delete the entire thread because I resent your statement, Marky.

    I came in to this thread to make an announcement with what information I had. I would expect that the fact I took out the time to come in to the forum and post a message to ease the wonderings of my fellow MC Members would be better respected.

    I came back to post that, after many e-mails and PMs (many doubles asking "did you get my message?"), that I don't know who at Diz to contact--and since posting that the e-mails and PMs about the topic have stopped.

    I don't have to prove anything to you or anybody else on these forums. I have represented myself as honest and sincere during my whole tenure here. I have never mislead anyone or lied to anyone here, and I will not (and when it happens, as did a thread the same day I posted my update that the auditions were cancelled, I ended the thread). That is how I earned the respect of my fellow MCers. I've always been diplomatic in my years of being on this message board and I would have hoped that having been the person I am on these boards the respect would continue. Or, perhaps you just haven't been around long enough to know me very well? I don't know.

    I guess what I need to do is back down and stop being so helpful and start just being a fan on these boards, and whenever information comes down to me stop sharing it because, as it appears, when I do I'll get a response like your's. I suppose I should just consider this for future reference and leave everyone hanging in the balance of "not knowing."

    Hey Fozzie Kevin, I re-read my post and I think it does come across terse and a bit over-the-top in the sarcasm dept.

    I hope you accept my appologies for coming across too crassly. I guess my dry humour took on a life of it's own when typed out. See if I were to say it to you live, It'd be accompanied by a rib-tickling or a squirt-gun shot or something - that's all.


    I'm embarrassed that I came across that way because I am a nice person. I guess I've. Would you accept my proverbial banana-split w/ 2 spoons?

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    I understand now. Sorry about misunderstanding earlier, then. :)

    We'll forget the whole thing.

    So... since they're still in the decision making process, who here made callbacks? How many were there and in what city? And who at the agency calls made it to the hold-the-muppet-in-front-of-Martin-Baker stage (agency people didn't have to do this apparently dreadful ping-pong thing)? And again, how many were there?

    To be fair, I'll answer first...

    Toronto. Agency Call, November 6th. 4 guys showed up. 2 guys got past the voice stage to the muppet holding (no pun intended) stage.

    To keep peace with the MHC/Diz and the possibility of a career, I would suggest that if you post information on MC that you do it so as to remain anonymous with them. I don't want anybody to hurt their chances by letting on who they are. :)

    Marky Well-Known Member

    (I'm not being sarcastic here, I'm asking honestly...)
    Do you think anyone at MHC reads these posts? And if so, would they bother trying to figure out who's posting compared to who'd be on their current shortlist? And if they did, would they care enough for it to make a difference in their decision-making process?

    I'm just too darn curious about the other auditions I wasn't at!!!

    I don't know the extent to which they care, but a lot of people directly involved with the Muppets do check out the forum, although they seldom most.

    hey gang,

    yeah MHC/Disney does know about us (Mc.com) it was in one of the papers they gave us asking how we found out about the Muppet auditions. it had Puppet somthin.com (sorry dont remeber of hand) Muppet Central.com and Tought Pigs.com to check off.

    so yeah they know about us! :)
  16. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    Yes, they do read MC, and TP. When in California I spoke with someone very close to the Henson family at the Museum of Television and Radio and she says they read these posts. As a matter of fact, I'm half-way embarassed posting this because it's likely that she is reading this right now.

    (And if you are reading this right now: You're my favorite! :D )

    dude , they read them all the time,
    when i was at the shop in nyc , we used to go here every other day to see if anybody heard anything before us(which was often the case).

    so yeah it might be wise for individuals who auditioned to keep it mum,

    and quite frankly,. as curious as we may be, and as much as they might want to talk about it,

    its non of our buisness, and i would think it would be foolish to risks thier possible job over a fan site.
  18. Fozzie Bear

    Fozzie Bear Well-Known Member

    I agree with Ravagefrackle. Stay anonymous, folks.

    Jerry (or Dave) said so at MuppetFest, "Folks at MC would know what we were doing before WE knew what we were doing." Jerry also gave us a huge plug at MF.

    Y'know, the other thing that was said at MuppetFest is something that we all should take to heart. The Muppets shouldn't be the end-all be-all goal for all of us. There are other games in town, whether they be other puppet troupes or starting up your own projects. It's enough that all of us were inspired enough by the Muppets to be interested in puppetry. There are only so many people they can employ, so why not use your skills to do your own thing?

    But why would they care?
