    My Story... Hmm

    To make things short I am a High School Student Who grew up with SS from the 90s; and go to an effort to find clips from then

    I remember in 4th grade I had a great teacher; and she all made us watch Labyrinth and The Storyteller; and thats where I got into Jim Henson. Until About 6 months Ago I had no idea about the wealth of stuff on the internet; just tried to watch SS when I could. But When I Found the Muppet Wiki I was hooked. From there I got into a pact between me and a friend to see who could stay up the longest watching SS and I won. I found MC through the wiki and have stayed here since. I have a deep love for the Female SS muppets; They are always so adorable and funny.
    I Also Love Cartoons; Languages ( I speak Fluent French and Middle English) the urban environment. Dunno why, but they all always seem so Inspiring to me.

    Other than being an SS devotee, my other main hobby is music; I love Heavy Metal and Adore Aussie Rock. This is good-seeing as I can Play 6 Instruments and I am a songwriter. I will admit I am a self confessed Geek, Being a Dr Who Diehard; a Trekkie; Music/art Nerd and Follower of the Kiss Army. One thing I do is With every song I write; it has a Small reference to SS (but some have been bleeding obvious). Other than that; Thats Me :insatiable:

    My pleasure. I'm so glad you like them. The one with the paws turned upward is Sebastian and the one with the blue collar is named Sparkle. The mohair that I made him out of came from South Africa. It's very pretty stuff.

    I have loved sewing them since the first part of the decade. I also love to make clothing. I am presently working on a jacket similar to one that Johnny Depp wore in 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. I didn't like the movie that much, but wow, I loved the jacket. :D

    Thank you so much. I'm really glad you like them.

    I grew up with 90's SS. I'm a highschool student. I love cartoons. I love (quite a bit of) heavy metal and also adore Aussie rock. I like writing songs. I am a self-confessed geek. I'm a MASSIVE art/music nerd. I am a Kiss fanatic.
    And I am AUSSIE!

    *Twilight Zone music*

    Dude. That ish awesome, you rock!

    By the way, Yva. I LOVE the pics. And I also love Johnny Depp's jacket. Tails, right? I have some black tails, they're real oldies. :D

    I found this forum when looking for information on a Kermit puppet that I bought on eBay. Then I came back when I had some spare time and Im hooked!
    Age : 36 so I guess im lucky to have grown up with the muppets and seeing the movies and stuff when they hit the big screen. Good times!
    I use puppets when I teach and have also used them with great success when working with Autistic children. Puppets are timeless and its wonderful to see younger people on here sharing the same passion as me :)
    My dream : To go to Muppetfest in the USA!

    i've just been reading this thread & i've gotta say, i think it's way cool that the muppets are so timeless that people from their teens to their 40s who have such diverse non-muppet interests all have fun here.

    about moi...i'm a graduate student in history, studying european empires in the seventeenth century. they've beaten academic writing into me so thoroughly that i've noticed even my posts are long-winded, exhibit overanalysis of small details, and often have passable grammar. sigh. i'd be wound *way* too tightly if it weren't for the muppets! (but my advisor is cool--he's from spain and is a lot like :rolleyes: okay.)

    i've always appreciated SS's music & humor, but i only became *OBSESSED* with it in february, due in part to academic burnout (i've been in school since 1989! get me out!), plus a bad cold that had me in bed for a few days. 'cause i always watched ss when i was sick in bed. but now i don't have a tv, so that's when i discovered classic clips on youtube and then discovered the mc forum, and now i'm a total junkie. :attitude: *sam glares at me for procrastinating on mc instead of grading my students' essays* but sam, i have fun here! :attitude: ok ok...i'll get back to work...

    Wow! That means you have been in school as long as The Simpsons have been on the air...:wisdom: :search: :p

    wow. guess so...and school jumped the shark in the late 90s, too... as marge said: "don't make fun of graduate students, bart, they just made a bad life choice"

    now that i think about it...i watched sesame street, then i went to school for 19 years (so far), and now i'm back to sesame street which teaches all the most important things anyway :wisdom:
