    Wow! That is a cool picture! I do remember that when I saw "Manny's Land of Carpets" a few more times earlier this summer, I recognize Jerry Nelson's voice when he announces Bubba's Burger Barn, Manny's Land of Carpets (sort of), and other things. LOL! Okay, so he is a silly creature but gosh I really know that voice. He will be missed!

    A haiku from the S.H.E. :

    Country folk singer
    Musician to the Muppets
    Rocker to the core!

    The one underlined is meant to be screamed. :fanatic:

    Perfect description of Jerry, covering all aspects of his music and personality in three short lines. You're great at these.

    I read this blog almost every day but never posted until now. I wanted to post this news before someone else does. Like everyone else i was very sad to learn about Jerry' Nelson's passing. But its great how many tributes there are out there to him right now. I found a very starnge one on a comic I read called "The Lost Side Suburbia" on GoComics. It is also a childrens book series and I bought two of the book on kindle last month. In the current story on GoComics Jerry Nelson appears as a kind man who is helping the main characters fight an evil thing called the bogey. It even mentions his daughter Christine and has lots of other muppet mentions. The Jerry Nelson character actually appeared before the realife Jerry Nelson even died. The author must be a muppet fan because I read two of the earlier books and there were muppet mentions like Fozzie being in jail with other comedians.

    I miss Jerry. I believe I was the very last person to work with him. I directed the photo shoot for his PR picture with Count Von Count and Herry Monster. It was SO wonderful to work with him that day. And after we did the photos he had to do some sound bites of Count Von Count... he was ver y calm and mellow for the shoot but THEN... when he did The Count he PERKED UP LIKE HE WAS 25 YEARS OLD!! And some of the performers pick one person to emote to when they are performing voice overs... and he picked ME!!! I was so touched. The Count was saying, "Count With ME... 1... 2... 3..." And I just wanted to blurt out, "1... 2... 3...!"
    ... but I kept it together. It was a beautiful shoot... and the very last time I would see my friend, Jerry Nelson.
    Just wanted to share.

    Aaawww... You're so lucky. I bet the people you saw were glad to see you work with a legendary puppeteer.
    I hope you get to meet The Count again, whether who performs him now.
    What were the sound bites for? Did you have a video recording of it? Was The Count operated by another person while he was talking?

    NYC is a bus ride away from me, so I'll be going. The only thing is that me and my mom aren't reserving tickets ahead of time since there isn't really any reason to become a museum member, and are instead arriving a few hours before the event starts, so I'm hoping tickets won't run out.

    A "world away" means very far away, therefore she doesn't have the time or money to go.
