    Bad as in both, but the sound is even worse than the video. My camera picks up way too much ambient noise. :(

    I was waiting out front with my family about 10 feet from you. Not to repost for repostings sake, but this is me:

    I would like to see any video you have, even if it's really awful.

    Oh MAN!! I sooooooo wish I woulda just gone to this, lol. I'd kept telling myself "it's gotta have Muppets if all those performers are gonna be there", but the fact that Steve wasn't ever listed to attend continued to put me off. DANG!! Dave, I've wanted to work on a Muppet art-collaboration with you since you put together that awesome MC People n Pals project. Woulda been cool to hang out and talk/draw Muppets. :super:

    Ah well, maybe next time. :sigh: Hopefully they'll realize how many people want this to happen again... and do it! Ha ha. Cheers!

    Hey Folks,
    After seeing that people had openly posted videos from this event, despite the attitude/policy against making such recordings at it, I decided I'd share the wealth of what I have. Upon first looking at the footage, I saw that most of it was a REALLY GOOD VIEW...

    ...of the ceiling. In my attempts to try to be inconspicuous, keeping my camera low, but angled up, I overshot it, not keeping an eye on the screen that shows the view, which would make it too obvious. I only got a quick look at Rowlf in a part of his intro, a brief glimpse of some S&W heckling, and a tad bit of the Mayhem playing the theme in the beginning medley.

    I guess it might be good for audio's sake, though there's definitely some "WOO!"ing on my part, and maybe some singing along. If enough people are really still interested, maybe I can make a montage with pics or something, though I've never attempted such a YouTube cliche before. Let me know. See ya!

    Oh man, I am insanely jealous of everyone who got to go, but so thankful to the folks who've posted reviews, videos and pictures! I would have absolutely lost my mind (in the best way possible) if I could have gone to this thing, and seen live Muppets and have a chance to meet Muppet performers/Sesame Street people (especially Steve Whitmire and Jerry Nelson, UGH I LOVE THEM SO MUCH).
    I've been obsessively watching the video where you can really see over the black curtains at Steve and Eric performing Kermit and Fozzie - I LOVE watching the Muppeteers at work! And also obsessively watching the "Movin' Right Along" portion of the Muppet medley. It's my favorite Muppet song and one of my favorite movie moments ever, and seeing/hearing it played tribute to seriously gives me the shivers. What a beautiful event!!! I'm so glad that the various companies who own the various properties were able to come together to let this happen, and I hope it will happen more often!

    I would REALLY like to see/hear all the video you have even if you don't do a montage.

    PLEASE put it on YouTube! Thank you.

    I wonder if Disney or Sesame Workshop put a limit on the amount of characters that could be included. Though almost all the important Muppet Show characters were there, it does seem a little odd that only four Sesame Street Muppets would have.

    Would you happen to have audio of the Fraggles' part? If so, I would love, love, love to hear it! Actually, I'd love to see/hear anything you have. Those of us who weren't there are kind of desperate, you understand. :)

    We even have a statue of him and Kermit right outside the student union on the campus that he went to here. Surely that calls for some kind of big event here in Maryland! :p

    Izzy and I were there. It was absolutely brilliant. I had a great time (save for the mic problems which drove me, as a theatre technician, absolutely crazy.) I can now say that I saw Paul Williams sing Rainbow Connection. I may or may not have teared up...[​IMG]

    All you had to do was hang by the stage door. That's how most of us got our chance to see everybody.
