    You will see three lumps traveling on the Labyrinth side. They are tiny shadows walking toward the castle and logo, right above the fairy.

    I like this for a permanent menu. Maybe we can switch back and forth. I think it is the better one. Very good ;)

    Thanks. I feel the coolness of seasonal menus is that they are only up for a little while. Also, there's something for everybody with the main menu of 200 rotating characters. Don't worry. It will return and we might use portions of it in a future section, but we need to keep the main page either current or use the classic default arches.

    Since I took over the multimedia design duties last September we have included tributes to Steve Whitmire, Joan G. Cooney, Fran Brill and Richard Hunt. More are to come. We have also celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, six Christmas menus (Marley & Marley, Emmet Otter, Muppet Cast Choir, Muppet Family Christmas, Moulin Scrooge and Muppet Christmas Carol), New Year's, 20 Years of Fraggle Rock, 5 Years of Muppet Central, Valentine's Day, St Patrick's Day, April Fool's Day, Easter and Puppetry Day. Future scheduled menus include Mother's Day, Father's Day, Independence Day and probably a few more surprises. It depends how much time I have.

    I'm really glad to see such enthusiasm. The default main menu is still my favorite. it was quite a chore to program the radnom code and locate (and create in some cases) good versions of all the characters.:)

    Yeah, sometimes when I'm bored, I reload the site to see what characters pop up and I try to know who they are, where they're from, and who's the performer. I've seen Johnny Fiamma and Sam of "Sam and Friends" pop up next to each other. Looks like those two know how to party.

    I saw the Richard Hunt menu, but never saw the Steve Whitmire, Joan G. Cooney, or Fran Brill menus! *gasp* Must have been near the beginning, before I knew the menus were being changed all the time.

    We really need to hold a contest to vote for which of Jamie's menus is the best. :) Plus, that'll give us a chance to see ones that we missed.

    And Jamie's right about the main menu. We take it for granted because we see it so much, but what other menu is likely to give you Yorrick, Leon, the Storyteller's Dog, Fleet Scribbler and Dr. Van Neuter all next to each other? Sometimes I'll hit reload multiple times just to see what happens.

    I also hope Fozzie's mom shows up in the Mother's Day menu, but Jamie's probably way ahead of us.

    The Mystics are by the fairy? I never even saw the fairy! Good excuse to go check out the menu again...

    plus don't forget your other menus on the site Jamie! Pigs in Space, Sesame Street, backstage, EM, TGMC News menu(i love that one!) Collectables, and so on!

    I love the white Owl in this one! Great job!

    I plan on bringing some puppets to work (pizza place) after my shift Saturday, I'll probably have them come in an order some food! That will leave the manger flabergasted! It always does!

    Zack)Rowlf the, loves:flirt: the puppet he won off e-bay made by Terry Angus Dog.:)

    Awsome menu and great choice of puppets! I love it that the puppets chosen were all very uniqe and also from different eras. I am still having problems with an avatar. How does one person have so much skill. I hope this is something they do as a job in their real life. Talent like that should be rewarded.

    You know, you're right? Talent like that should be rewarded. Jamie, would you like to buy a watch? :cool:

    That should be the Jim Henson celebration menu. Don't expect anything big. It'll be like the rest of the birthday menus. That could change next year.:)

    Hey and Jamie if you have time of course, I remember you liked the idea of Kermit the Frog Day, Nov 14, the day Kermit got his Hollywood star! Maybe a Menu full of classic Kemits from the all the Muppet Movies and shows.

  16. frogboy4

    frogboy4 Inactive Member

    That's a fantastic idea. Maybe a Big Bird day too. Who knows. Right now I have three jobs so I'll be lucky to release the Mother's Day menu on schedule.:smirk:

    electricmayhem Well-Known Member

    Oh come on! "Jobs", I mean, how important can those be? Really Jamie, WHERE are your priorities???;) :D

    Just kidding!!!! Your menus are just so cool! I hope you don't feel too pressured to get them out on time because we wouldn't want that! :)

    I feel like quitting my new service job It is meant to float me between freelance positions (right now I have 2 freelance gigs). This postition boils down to designing displays and windows for a major retailer. I actually started out with a promotion (everybody else is irked at that), but I've only been there a few days and it's already eating all of my time and sucking my soul. At the moment, I'd rather be really poor.

    I'm sticking it out for another couple of days, but it's interfering with my freelance work. It's just not worth it and not really my field anyway. Tomorrow is the real test. I pull an overnight shift after hours. I'd rather be a medical test subject. I can't stand clothes and perfume. I go home with red eyes every night like I'm working in a coal mine or something. Sorry, rant over. I'll be plugging away trying to find something better, even if it doesn't pay as much. Hopefully I'll have more time for MC after that. The entire time I'm at this store, I feel like there's so much I need to be doing away from there and it drives me nuts.

    By the way, jeans aren't jeans anymore, they are refered to as denim! Who gives a flying penguin?!! :zany:

    (sorry about the rant):o

    I don't look good in jeans. Or are we talking about something else?
  20. frogboy4

    frogboy4 Inactive Member

    They're jeans (and it says denim jeans on the label), but we are to refer to them as denim only. That is why I know this place is not for me. It's funny that I received a position (considered a promotion) over longtime emplyees and I can't fold a pair of pants! I'm good at faking it, but there are other positions that I would like better without the title of Visual Merchandiser where I won't have to wear uncomfortable shoes. Anyway...um ...denim is preppy for jeans. :o

    I'd rather spend more time on the visual merchandising here. :(
