    I in general from Russia, am more senior than you a little and much more senior than many here. It can seem strange, but at us Mappet is a show for adult people. However, in 18 years it too admired me, and even has affected some moments of destiny, but now I look it with much greater pleasure than then. I very much love Ms. Piggi, can, because itself to it is a little similar. Cheeks and do not hold out a nose, certainly, but my eyes precisely as at this nice svinki. For me Mappet show the phenomenon of the same order, as Monti Pajton, and Charli Chaplin. That is - great, a masterpiece. This art first of all, and then already all rest.
    I the writer though my books differ from fairy tales. However, can, and I shall start to write fairy tales, in fact I am engaged seriously in anthropology and folklore, the material has collected, can, in something and will pour out good. The main thing that the material touched you. Because, as our great poet has told:
    But if is not present pleasures, burning
    Then do not think, that you will sonorously start singing
    Also a theme of a field, or a theme of the sea
    And a theme of mountains - all this will be lie
    (translation certainly, a curve, but that you want - the electronic translator)

    I'm way old but I feel right at home here. I'll admit my first love is Sesame Street I probably have every episode memorized up to 1990. My favorite movies are French Kiss, Happy Texas and The Color Purple.

    I really love things that bring back happy memories, not that I'm living in the past, I'm just extremely Sentimental.

    I hate injustice. I love to laugh because it makes me feel soooo good. I love Rizzo in The Muppet Christmas Carol, he's hilarious.

    The statements quoted are now needing to be updated

    I am now 14

    My NEW favorite movie is MTM, but the movies listed are still some of my favorites

    As of now, I am learning how to play BOTH bass and guitar, although, focussing a bit more on guitar at the moment.


    And now, stuff I am adding

    Why i was drawn here: Because its the muppets!
    Where i live: SC
    Occupation: Student, a "writer", I guess a begginer guitarist
    Favorite Food: Um...cheese sticks, if thas considered a food
    Favorite TV shows: Lots

    Also, I am proud to say, I have finally got the courage to tell my dad that floyd is my favorite muppet (about a month ago), thankfully, he didnt think i was weird, and I dont think hes made the connection of me wanting to play bass and my favorite character being floyd, but...oh well, maybe it will finally dawn on him:sing:

    Let's see, now:

    DOB: November 5, 1985
    Sign: Scorpio
    POB: Anchorage, AK
    Occupation: Perpetually frazzled college student and intrepid girl reporter
    Hobbies: Reading, writing, playing the guitar and bass, listening to music, daydreaming, traveling
    Fav. food: Anything with chocolate in it

    I have memories of watching reruns of the Muppet Show over my parents' shoulders when I was four or five. My mom's a longtime fan, so I come by it honestly.
    As I have said at least a million times before, my favorite character is Scooter, but I also like Kermit, Statler and Waldorf, Floyd, Janice and the Swedish Chef (Mom's favorite, though it could be a tie b/n the Chef and the hecklers).

    Well, I'm 16, soon to be a senior in HS. I started coming here cuz it's cool to talk to people that are interested in the same things as me. I work at a preschool once a week. Ummmm...... I LOVE SWINGDANCING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's awesome. I draw a comic-strip called Dusty Shades....... My fave Muppets are Beaker, Gonzo, Animal, and Fozzie. And.... I guess that's it for now.

    fluffmuppet Well-Known Member

    Heya there. I'm Coral (no, seriously..that's my real name), but people call me corky, definitely call me *fluff* on here, or the muppet/puppet girl...

    I joined this site about 4-5 or so years ago..but I was off for a year because I have a short attention span and get easily focoused on something else for a long or short period of time, but then will go back to whatever I liked before and so on and so forth..I like many things, like animation (and I'm in college for it right now), making/performing puppets, dolls, costumes, coloring pictures, making funny voice impressions and singing, acting like my crazy funny-arse self in public and around my friends, obsessing over my Swiss culture, and collecting crazy toys from the 50's, as well as the old muppets plush dolls..

    People always mistake me for being albino...and once I was mistake for a wax sculpture at Madame Tussands...

    I don't really have a best friend because all the "best friends" I've had in life literally go insane or something lol

    I am a Canadian, but wish I lived in Switzerland.

    My fingernails stopped growing at the age of 5.

    I know and am friends with a few famous and semi-famous people: Don Mancini (creator of Chucky from Child's Play, and I'm good friends with his sister too!), John (K)ricfalusi (creator of Spumco/Ren & Stimpy), and Noreen Young (creator of Under the Umbrella Tree) I've also been to her house a few times as well as John K's...

    I'm currently listening to Lederhosen Lucil, and I think she should be a Muppet LOL

    I was born without a thyroid.

    I made a Kira/Gelfling costume one Halloween, and still have it...YAY!

    Halloween is the best day in the world..WOOT!

    I'm very very very uh... ....what?.......... Oh yeah..VERY random...LOL

    I've performed in 2 puppet shows when I used to be part of a Puppet Club..but I had to drop the club because my mom made me get a life-sucking job that I hated..but now I'm in school YAY!

    I have photographic memory up to the age of 1 year old.

    I guess I'm just a scatterhead with the heart of a child..and I respect people but I can also be blunt LOL depends on who though...

    Hmm what else...

    I don't know..there's more layers on me than an onion, but no parts are rotton... But since I dislike onions, I'm contemplating one someting else with lots of layers that won't make people cry..'cause I'm nothing like an onion...

    Dangit I'm rambling on again...

    *runs away*

    I'm Barry, I live in NC, I am an aspiring cartoonist, I have four fingers on each hand, I am deaf, I have had over 19 surgeries, I love collecting muppet rareties on dvd, I love the history of the muppets, I love classic animation. That's me basically. :)
  11. Speed Tracer

    Speed Tracer Well-Known Member

    My name is Jack. I'm sixteen years old and I'm about to be a high school junior. I live in North Carolina.

    My dream for over three years has been to be a filmmaker. I consider myself pretty lucky to know early on exactly what I want to be in life. I know people twenty years older than me who still aren't sure.

    My biggest inspirations are specifically Jim Henson, Charlie Chaplin, Mel Brooks, and Kevin Smith,

    If I didn't want to be a director, I would want to be an actor. My favorite actor is Kevin Spacey. No one owns a scene like him.

    I'm Agnostic... I don't belong to any organized religion, but I have oodles of respect for people who do.

    I love to use words like "oodles".

    Politically, I go left. Way left.

    I really liked The Muppets' Wizard of Oz.

    My favorite Muppets are Kermit and Gonzo. I'm sort of a combination of them both. There's probably a little of Piggy, Fozzie, and Rowlf in there as well. That's one of the many reasons why I love the Muppets... they really are fully-fleshed out characters that we can all relate to. Erm, maybe I should have said fully-felt out characters... ;)

    My parents are divorced, but honestly, I prefer it that way. I get to see them both all the time, as they have joint custody and live maybe ten miles away from each other.

    I can't go a single morning without listening to music. My favorite bands are Barenaked Ladies, Sigur Ros, R.E.M., and The Flaming Lips.

    Brinatello Well-Known Member

    *gasp* Sango?! OMG!! I just joined here today, went browsing, and saw your post! What a small world! Good to see you on here!

    Anyway, here's my story (copied from my LJ Bio):

    I'm a California native born in Torrance on August 27, 1978. With the different jobs, my dad moved us around to a few places, from Hawthorne in 1980, to Chula Vista in 1982, and then finally settling into Escondido in 1983 for over 20 years. I currently live with my mom, Dianna, my sister, Christine and we have two cats: a male grey tabby named Toby and a female tux named Jasmine. I've worked at Vons grocery store since December 2, 2002 and in August, 2004, was sent to work in the service deli department.

    My goals are to become a graphic artist, creating art and animation on the computer. I also love music and singing, something I've done as far back as the second grade. My unfortunate weaknesses are the lack of trust to others, constantly worrying about what people think about me, and jumping to the wrong conclusions with almost every encounter I come across. I'm extremely sensitive, self-conscious and one of the worst procrastinators of the world. I realize at the time I am writing this, I have not reached the stage where I am most satisified with life. It is something I must do in order to achieve the happiness I've been searching for for a long time. Change can be a wonderful and a scary thing, and being so close to 30 years of age, I must accept whatever consequences come my way.

    Hi there, DJ SCY here.

    I'm in my late thirties (37 to be exact).
    I live in Topeka, Kansas.
    My hobbies are music mixing, cartooning, story writing, computer games, photography, and computers.
    As a matter of fact all of my hobbies are done on computer.
    The reasons I joined up on this forum is that I've been a muppet fan since the 1970's, I'm a Dark Crystal fan, and the Gelfling College forum has been filling up with alot of bad spam from people who just what to sell there useless junk.

    Some of you may or may not know this but I did write a Dark Crystal fan fic called Shards of the Crystal and submited it to Fan Fiction.net in it's movie page.
