    Hey...
    Kinda new here.. been reading for awhile and only started posting...
    I'm not new to Muppets. I've loved them for as long as Sesame Street has existed./
    I'm new to forums and websites and podcasts and a community that I didn't know existed until recently.
    I teach Drama/Dance/Music. I direct and perform and I decided that because I'm gonna die one day, (I'm not sick, I just understand my mortality), that I'm not wasting time wishing I was doing something, I'm gonna do it. So, I've recently rekindled my muppetational obsessiveness to my great satisfaction.
    This summer has been very muppety - Starting in April when my husband and I flew to NYC for the Carnegie Hall performance and finished the weekend with a Stuffed and Unstrung performance.
    We also went to Montreal for the Muppets at Just For Laughs - amazing!!!
    And I've attended two weekend workshops with Michael Earl through The Puppet School.
    Made it to the Puppets UP festival in Almonte and also made it to Atlanta to visit the Center for Puppetry Arts. Great fun - all of it. And it's just the start!
    Glad to be here.

    Why bother trying to come out of it? It's a great place to live.

    The whole family grew up with the Muppets. I own the Muppet DVD collection, and formed a new appreciation for Henson's work. They make me laugh, and they radiate creative energy like no other art form. A few skits really blew me away when I watched them recently, everything from "Andy Kaufman" style humor that I missed, to slapstick, to "Brando" quality theater....but almost always tongue in cheek. I worked with foam epoxies, and found it to be difficult. I made a few dramatic YouTube skits, and better appreciate how it's sometimes easy, sometimes difficult....depending on what I ate for breakfast, the stars, and karma....but Henson's energies were always overflowing. Peace.

    Hi,

    I bought a muppet from the Muppet What Not Factory. I've called him Karl and he likes going places.

    I'm a filmmaker and this year Karl got to go to Cannes Film Festival.
    to see some of my videos. Only one with Karl so far...
