Why is Elmo my favorite Muppet? How should I know? All I know is that Being Elmo made me jump in my seat.
It’s about Kevin Clash’s journey from being a teenager puppeteer to being the voice of Elmo. But it’s so much more. I recognized so many Muppets I used to love (or still love after watching a YouTube vid or two.) Just watch it, especially if you’re over the age of 28 or so.
And if you love me a ton, get Elmo to wish me a happy 35th birthday. That’s 16 months from now, so you have time…
You know that whole preparation for the Zombie Apocalypse? Did you ever wonder what the other side is thinking? If so, I recommend the movie Aaah! Zombies!! or Wasting Away, the title used in IMDb.
This movie shows the world that we, as humans, see, and the world that the zombies see. They think that they’re perfectly all right and that we’re infected with whatever monsters are infected with (it’s different in every zombie franchise.) The group realizes that they’re all zombies and decides to run away to a commune. Meanwhile, the army is trying to kill them all, which is the logical thing to do with zombies (Quote, “You have to shoot the head!”) It’s campy, it’s silly and it stars a pre-Bones Michael Grant Terry. Go see it on Netflix Streaming. You’ll have a good time. If only for the shot of zombies trying to kiss…
And for some reason, the posters I put up might not load correctly. Sorry about that.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know that in Virginia, if you want an abortion, you have to have an invasive ultrasound beforehand. “Well meaning people” (read, old white guys) want the woman to save the baby (forgetting the issues of rape, prenatal care, postnatal care, adoption, yadda, yadda, you know the drill.)
Keith Knight, who has very poignant commentaries on current events, recently did this comic:
Read his stuff, buy his books, go see him at conventions (the MoCCA Festival in NYC is a great place because it’s cheap!)
Yeah, I’d said I was going to change this before. The news depresses me. I can’t comment on the inanity of political and social life as we know it.
I can, however, point you to places that do comment to the news, as well as places and things I think are awesome. I’ve already started doing stuff like that in the past few posts, and I’ll still be doing some “Just Saying” posts. I might even change this old look. We’ll see about that, since there’s a lot going on in my life right now (when is that ever alleviated?)
So when the economy was worse than it is now and unemployment was up at 10%, life for the Republicans didn’t start until January 2009. Now that the troops are being withdrawn from Iraq, they suddenly remember their esteemed leader and cry foul. Forgetting, of course, that said leader put us in this mess in the first place.
