    Can't you connect the external drive to your computer?

    That I can do.

    What I meant was is it possible to move the programs themselves like premiere, after effects, etc onto your external hard drive so you don't have to have them sitting on your computer and take up space.

    Not sure. I suppose you could try installing them onto the external drive like you would your machine? I wouldn't really know, I've only ever used external drives to save backup copies of the master files of my projects.

    Actually, here's a question I have for everyone.

    What are some muppet voices you cannot do? I, for the love of god, have trouble trying to do Richard Hunt voices sometimes. The best I can do is Don Music-type voices.... and Janice.

    (I also sometimes wish I could have a powerful singing voice like Chris Cerf).

    Can't? Well, pretty much any voice that has a level of gravely or raspiness to it - I don't know how Jim was able to do voices like Rowlf or Dr. Teeth, or how Frank did Grover or Cookie Monster without losing their voices altogether. I can do Grover to a degree, but it strains my throat after only a sentence or too. If I have to do such a voice, what I usually is rather than force the gravel from my throat, I kind of talk inwardly, if that makes sense - it creates an effect similar to raspiness without irritating my throat so much, but it only works to a degree with certain voices and not so much with others (like the aforementioned Muppets).

    I used to have trouble doing Dr. Teeth voices from Jim, but learned to kind of get it down after practicing.... though it can put a strain on my throat, I agree. Same with gruff Frank Oz voices.

    I do find though it helps to get the voices after drinking something with a lot of carbs.

    Actually, I find trying to do gruff Brian Muehl voices can be a pain. I tried doing Bushman Bill's voice and it sounded terrible.

    I know I've mentioned this several times, but I really used to be able to do a mean Elmo, but then again, I was really great at doing high-pitched, falscetto voices in general . . . then I hit puberty by the time I was in high school and my voice finally dropped, and since then I can barely do voices like that without induring some noticable discomfort.

    Elmo's pretty easy for me.... then again, I've also practiced with doing high voices like Mr. Bill, Gypsy from Mst3k, Miss Piggy, etc...

    The only Muppet voices I can't do are females played by actual females, although I can do Prairie Dawn for some reason. Alex, if you wanna make your Elmo impression better, I have a couple of tips: In the ToughPigs interview with DillonGale, Ryan realized that Kevin Clash is from Baltimore, so Elmo should have a Baltimore accent. Ryan also said Elmo doesn't have a high squeaky voice all the time. The way Mark put it was imagine Elmo's driving and his left foot consistently pushes the gas pedal.

    How come @newsmanfan never comes here that much anymore? I haven't seen her since, what, July?

    She's one of those members who seems to just come and go at random. Some members just do.

    Sometimes people just get bored of the site.

    Okay, so is going to be kind of a stupid question, but uh....

    Is there a way you can ignore a thread that bugs you like you can ignore a user? Like, I know there's the old trick of just not going on there, but I wanted to know if there was a way you could just filter them out.

    Cause, I'll be honest, some threads.... Okay, one particular thread, just honestly gives me a headache sometimes and I only participate because of what's currently going on in this world.... But at this point I'm just done with it all together.

    Does anyone know what kind of vehicle The Kratt Brothers are driving in this commercial for Kratt's Creatures?



    It appears at 0:05.

    It's clearly a 1991-95 Dodge Caravan or Plymouth Voyager.

    What is the last clip in this video supposed to be a parody of? I recognize everything else but I have no idea who the weird cat-looking guy is supposed to be or what show/movie/game, etc. he's from:

    Does anybody know?

    I'm just curious...what's the highest number of alerts any of you have gotten on here before hovering over the Alerts button to make them disappear? I'm attempting a record at the moment and I'm up to 91 right now.

    Probably 6 for me.
