    Well I guess I will be the first new member to post on this board. Whooo hooo!

    I just found this site the other day and love it!!! I have been a HUGE Muppet fan for as long as I can remember. (I am 23 now). I was very upset when the Muppetfest dates were changed last year and it ended up that I couldnt go. I cant wait til they have another one. Now, my ultimate goal in life is to work with the Muppets. If anyone has any tips, please let me know. I cant wait to get to know you all better!

    first off welcome to the new MC! As youll see, you'll probably fit in with all of us zany wacky people^_^ I see FL is home to several
    cool MC members now!;)

    About the Muppetfest date change, it was really hard on a lot of people understandably. I regret there were people who planned to go a year ago and couldnt make the rescheduled December change. I really hope you are able to make it this time(supposedly march 2003 in NYC, but that isnt official yet)
    as it is really one of the coolest experiences. Seeing an actual live production of the Muppet Show and just seeing the Muppets and performers in person is one of life's greatest things.

    You have a really good goal there. May I ask, whats aspect of JHC would you like to do? Im not sure if for instance on MFS or KSY if a majority of small prop or grip or help is contracted internally or outside. But no better time than now to work towards working for JHC as a dream job, as I believe 2003 will be the Muppets and the company's heralded return.

    Anyways, thanx for posting! Hmmm, this early-mid twenties age ratio on here is staggering;)

    Well just like most other people here Im sure... I would love to
    do anything as long as it is with the Muppets. I am going to go back to school in Jan. to get a TV prod. major and I am also getting more and more into puppetry. I figure if I have experience in both the better my chances.

    Hey April

    I worked in TV Production (well, more the editorial side nowdays) and it's one of the coolest jobs around although a lot of hard work at times. Good luck with everything !

    Greetings to all!

    I just wanted to say "hello" to all of the self-proclaimed fellow-Muppet-freaks! I'm Byron (Janice & Mokey Man)'s sister, and I finally caved in and registered after hearing how fun this site was for eons.

    Any intrusive, personal questions about Byron will be most eagerly answered. :D
  8. Re: Greetings to all!

    :eek:

    No they will not!

    Really!

    They won't!

    LOL

    Aside from that, welcome aboard, Sis! :D Lol

    Hi All,

    I just signed up on the 1st of the month and am already completely addicted to this forum..when I wake up at night I contemplate getting a drink of water to have an excuse to go upstairs where the computer is! I didn't really properly introduce myself when I signed on, so I felt a quick yet proper intro was in order.

    I have loved, LOVED the Muppets since practically birth, the Muppet Movie was the first film I ever saw in the theatre and when I look back at pic's of me as a kid, it would appear every clothing item I owned was Muppet related from my blue winter coat that had Cookie Monster eyes on the hood (I'd wear it now if I still had it:( ) to my Ernie and Oscar slippers...not to mention so much more.

    My best friend and I were at Muppetfest and had NO idea how many fanatics were out there, and how we paled in knowledge by comparison, it was truly mind blowing! We were so glad to get the Muppet Central buttons which led us here, and after some procrastination due to the fact that I had never been on a newsgroup before, here I am.

    I live in Toronto and am a choreographer and theatre teacher at a musical theatre academy. I have a degree in film and a diploma in musical theatre and it has occured to me in recent years that my entire career path was shaped by the Muppets. They taught me vaudeville/musical theatre songs and introduced me to people like Gene Kelly who, in conjunction with the Mupp's became my inspiration for a career that incorporated dance, fun, zaniness, theatre and penguins. Ok, I have never worked with penguins, but if I could...I sure would (as long as they could crack jokes of course..)

    At any rate, I am sure we will all find out more about each other as we go along, thanks Phil and Cindy for having such a fun and friendly list! I never thought I'd join something like this, that just shows the power of the Muppets.

    hey, she's your sister...if anyone gets to make fun of you (and has good ammo for it) it's her! if she happens to do so in a public forum where we all just HAPPEN to get to read it and enjoy, then well i guess that's your fault for telling her about the place!

    :D

    *is suddenly glad his sisters are not Muppet fans*

    Hello all new members, and welcome!! Enjoy your stay on the MC boards, they are a very cool place to be.

    Cory - HAHA! The Floridians are gaining on the Californians! Mods and the Rockers, we must fight! "There really isn't much of a difference between us!" "YES THERE IS! THATS WHY IM A MOD!!!" LoL :D

    April - Welcome! Good luck working with JHC. Hopefully one day I can say I conversed with a famous JHC Staffer. :)

    Miss Diva - Welcome!! Ooo, I've got questions for you! Your brother is a bit of a nut, but I luv him all the same. So any sister of Byron is OK by me! Enjoy! (PS - Does he sleep with a stuffed animal? hehe)

    And to all new members:

    LOL!

    Hmmm...

    Maybe we should start up an "Ask Tara" thread so we can ask her all kinds of questions about Byron...

    :D

    "Sister Byron" sounds like a scary, British nun.


    Hey Grail,

    Thanks for the tip... I must search for this "stupid" thread. Family blackmail money is a great source of income... ;)
