    What about my PM or e-mail Kev? What about ME!!!

    Sorry, feeling like crazy-postin'-muffin-man tonight. Please ignore as you see fit, while being aware that if you ignore me I'll have no choice but to harass you with bothersome, uh, somethings, and at the same time any stock you might own in the ideas of evolution will dissolve, insofar as giving meaning to the reasons of my own sanity...

    What? Where am I? Oh yeah, just read a thread about meaningless posts, or bad grammar or something like that. Just felt like I needed to add something to this thread, that's all. Maybe I should go start a thread about what kind of sound the door makes when it opens, or an odd little tidbit my Gramma told me the other day.

    And now I say goodnight.

    "Thank you for taking the time" blahblahblah "observe your skills" blahblah "After careful review of our openings" blahblahblah "unable to identify a proper match."

    "But thanks for the night of tequilla shots! When you're in NYC, the shots are on me!

    Your Drinkin' Bud,

    Kevin Clash"

    Okay, I made up the last part.

    Hey McGov, I got mine too!

    Dear ______,

    You've got great skills and would have made a fine addition to what we're doing. You kinda blew it by harassing us with all of your calls to the MHC Los Angeles office - idiot. In fact, we've decided not to hire any of you pot-smokin' same-sex-marring liberal Canuks anyways. However, we do have some great news for you! Enclosed is your $5.00 rebate off of your next Disney DVD purchase (valid only with p.o.p. of Bambi II or Lady and the Tramp Special Edition).

    WOW! They wrote back!!!

    ps., dry, Canadian sarcastic humour (or humor) was used while making this response. I haven't recieved any letter yet..

    So... is this a generic letter they're sending us (who got to the touch-a-muppet-stage) who didn't get a call?

    Nope. I got one too, and I got cut during the lip-sync stage.

    It's funny, do they wonder why they didn't find a match when most of us who can actually do the voices, personalities, mannerisms got cut without them even hearing our impersonations?

    I just really wish they would've heard us first before making the cuts. I can always learn to puppeteer in the style they were looking for.

    Now I'm sad all over again! :sympathy:

    Yea its a generic letter , they progamed our name into the computer and wrote it in! Oh buy the way I didn't get to the Touch a Muppet stage I got cut on the voice's.

    Ps: Touch a Muppet sounds so bad:eek: Yes were all Puppet perverts

    Hmm, I got to touch-a-muppet, yet I wasn't called for the March thing...
    This is like an episode of CSI: Orlando. Maybe the theme song should be the Who's 'Behind Ping-Pong Eyes'.

    Yes, I'm sure you could. Yet this 1st stage is the basic foundation of any puppeteering which displays natural ability, or more specifically, just how far along your starting point would be compared to people who don't have an advasnced skill in lip-synch. Let's face it, We all go on about the new Mupppeteers voices, but ALL of them are bang-on w/ movements, which is 80% of the art.

    You raise a good point. And yes, I do do my own thing with many things, etc.

    However... this thread is the Muppet audition 2005 thread, if I'm not mistaken!!! We've got a right to buzz since it's been on our heads, torturing us for months and months!!! :p

    So.. are there any people who did touch-a-muppet who got this same letter yet?
  13. Marky

    Marky Member

    Could anyone please PM me on this subject? I'm, trustworthy and discreet. Just ask... er... see? Told you!

    I didn't get any letter. But, that's okay.

    I plan to own Disney one day anyhow. SO, uh, can someone make me a loan?

    I think testing for voice first would have been a smart thing also if they were willing to train someone to be a Muppeteer.

    However in this current audition they didn't want to teach the Muppet style of puppetry to some one who could do voices. They wanted somone already prepared in the art of puppetry.

    So instead they looked for the opposite, Muppet style puppeteers with a gift for voice.
  18. Marky

    Exactly, which makes much more sense. You'd be surprised how many people do great Muppet voices. Probably even more surprised by the amount of people who think they can do great Muppet voices. The lip-synch had to be first - period. Without that ability you have a long, long way to go before entreing the pro-puppetry ranks.

    You know, instead of complaining about how they conducted the auditions, why not get a puppet and a monitor and learn how to puppeteer? Even if they never have another audition, at least you'll decided if it's something you want to do.

    You might even have fun.

    WOCKA WOCKA!! I get it!! "Make me a loan" "Leave you alone!"

    I'd ask "who's your writer," but I already know! :o
