    You're more than welcome to choose your own, but if you don't have any ideas I'd be glad to assign it. Since you have your own ideas by all means write on them! :D

    SUCH a FAB idea! Ok, eventually I would love to do an article or two, but for now sign me up for proof-reading and editing! I'm really excited about this!

    I'm working on the FR DVD thing, but it might take me a couple of days.

    This sounds tempting, but I'm not sure. I feel (and a few have commented on this at times) like many of my posts (both first-posts in threads and responses) seem well-thought-out, perhaps more appropriate for an article. Though outdated, I would like to review A Celebration of Me, Grover! and the two Sesame Street 35th anniversary specials, as well as the 35th anniversary game and Street Gang. Maybe also some articles on my own experiences as a Muppet fan, some on some of my favorite characters (much like the old Rarely Seen Muppets articles... I don't know if they are still on this site; Of course there already has been an article on one of my favorite rarely-seen Muppets, Lips). Maybe a series of articles on certain Muppet Show and Sesame Street sketches that I either like or dislike.

    I'll think about it.

    Alex - Awesome! Thank you!

    Kelly - Perfect! That's one of the most important ones to get a review of I think.

    Dwayne - Get in here, man! You know I want you a part of this team! A review of Pepe's book would be fantastic!

    MrsPepper - Thanks, boss! Whenever you get the time, a review of that one would be awesome! :sing:

    minor_muppetz - I think a review of any of that stuff would be awesome, m_m! Opinion articles are always welcome too! Just submit whatever you'd like!

    I'm gone for the weekend gang, but when I get back I should have some articles to send to those of you who've expressed proof-reading interest. So expect a PM or e-mail from me on Monday! :D

    Sounds like a good idea! I'd like to get on board and review some of the newer SS DVDs!

    I agree with Jamie/Prawnie most strongly that its about time, with Phils permission of course, the site became more interactive and open to contributions like it used to be. It feels so dead other than the forum.

    I used to write some of the news opinion pieces for MC way back, would be happy to do a few of those when the need arises. Now the Muppets are actually doing "stuff" again maybe it would be good to bring back the MC Review Of The Year as well as that used to be very popular.

    Well I just sent out all of the reviews I have for proof-reading. This project is finally getting off the ground! Here's hoping we'll see it succeed! :D

    And keep sending some articles gang! We can always use more!

    Okay, here's some of what I'd like to do.

    I didn't see a review for Street Gang (then again, I do need new glasses one of these days), so I'd like to do a review on that.

    I'd also like to contribute another fan testimonial for Richard Hunt's tribute page - can I do that?

    heralde Well-Known Member

    I like to do that too, if possible! (Don't mean to take your idea, MN, hehe. You just inspired me. :) ;) )
     
  13. theprawncracker

    theprawncracker Well-Known Member

    Perfect! I completely forgot that Street Gang didn't get a good review here on the site. A review of that would be AWESOME, Erin!

    And of course you (and you, heralde) can add another fan testimonial! That's a great idea! :D

    Okay, so my eyesight isn't that bad after all. I'll get to work on an SG review as soon as I have a few spare moments.

    Do we just send them in as Word documents, and do we send them on to you or to someone else?

    I would love to review/write an opininon piece on "Kermit Culture: Critical perspectives on Jim Henson's Muppets". It will take me to the end of the week to finish reading it, but I would love to write a review on it; It's a great anthology so far. :)

    Erin - Word documents are perfect, thanks! Just send when you can!

    Muppetfan44 - Yes! That would be a wonderful review to have! Just write it when you can and send it my way. :D

    I have seen the review at Toughpigs, but after reading what I have so far, there are things that I disagree with, plus it's always good to have another perspective.

    Calendar Girl: Pig Dreams is already started. I have january done but I haven't posted it yet becuase the forum got bombarded with a bunch of new fics in the last month or so, so I wanted to wait till things died down a little. Once I finish February and March I will post January. I having a lot of fun with it though!

    Someday I want to write something about the Kermit/Piggy dynamic too. That will be my next project for winter break!

    Thanks prawncracker, I'm setting myself a deadline of August 1st; I'll get the article to you then.
    :)

    Back "in the day" I have written a few reviews for this site for a few Muppet projects and I really enjoyed it and got some nice feedback. I really enjoy writing it was one of my greatest strengths throughout school and it would be especially fun to write pieces on Muppet stuff.

    As I don't have any of the current merchandise maybe for now I can either help someone else out or if anyone has ideas of something they'd like me to contribute....

    Only downfall is my schedule is rather hectic these days so it may take me awhile to get articles out but I would really love to be a part of this. I take a lot of care into my writing and would want to do it right.

    Oh yes, I can do proof reading as well. I'm awesome at grammar and all that.
