Yes, I visited the set of The Muppets… Again! yesterday. No, I can’t say anything. Yes, Dave Goelz and Peter Linz are incredible. Yes, the movie is going to be awesome.
You should all be increasingly jealous of Muppet Mindset’s Ryan Dosier (and Tough Pigs’ Matt Wilkie) for gettin gto visit the set of The Muppets… Again! in California yesterday.
Tough Pigs did an excellent write up on Jane’s passing. Go give it a read if you’d like to learn more about the life of this fabulous woman.
Ryan Roe of our favorite website for Muppet fans that grew up (that’s Tough Pigs, kids) has a project that needs your help!
They’re reached their goal (yay!) but could still use all the love and support they can get!
Check em out!
Do it! Ryan’s a good friend, and despite reaching the goal already it’d be awesome if he could get a bit more for his show!
Hey gang! Ever wanted to write to a particular Muppeteer? Well now you can! Head on over to Tough Pigs to get the scoop on this fabulous project where we have the chance to write postcards (a la Traveling Matt) to our favorite Muppeteer(s)!
So I did a Valentine’s Day inspired feature over on Tough Pigs that just went up. It’s called “Everyone Should Date a Gonzo”, and if you’ve been following this tumblr for over a year then chances are you’ll remember when I shared certain parts of it a while ago. It’s a pretty long piece, so here’s an excerpt from it:
Date a Gonzo because a Gonzo is the ever optimist, always believing there is something more that can and should be done. They believe their plans will go off without a hitch, they’ll never say no to an adventure, and they somehow always manage to look on the bright side of things. This really struck me during the scene in The Great Muppet Caper where the guys are out with Miss Piggy on Kermit’s date. While Fozzie and Kermit were busy worrying over how they were going to afford their meal with “Lady Holiday”, Gonzo did not hesitate to jump into action and instantly began taking pictures for money. No one asked him to, he just acted on instinct. This brings up a whole other point: a Gonzo is selfless. They’ll do things for others without being asked and they won’t complain whilst doing it. They will always give you their all. A Gonzo does not give up and will do whatever it takes to make sure everyone is happy. What? What’s that? A kid’s letter didn’t make it to Santa Claus and now she may not get her Christmas wish? No problem, because a Gonzo will take that letter all the way to the North Pole, because that’s what a Gonzo does.
You can read the whole thing over here at Tough Pigs.
Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
