Once In A Lifetime (Kermitx3)

April 19th, 2011 by frankie23

On the drive home, I was reminded of this awesome bit from Muppets Tonight, Kermit The Frog covering the Talking Heads’ classic, “Once In A Lifetime”. Make sure you watch it all the way to the end for a lovely bit of Muppet surreality.

Orson Welles Gets Freaky With Jim Henson

April 14th, 2011 by frankie23

Once upon a time, Orson Welles taped a pilot for a talk show. This show, unfortunately, did not get picked up, but we do have an amazingly creepy little clip from it here, where he waxes all profound on Kermit & Co. while interviewing the late, great Jim Henson, and Frank “Yoda” Oz. One can only imagine how much better reality would be if this had gone through.

Jenny C'est Quoi as Miss Piggy

Sometimes, I just genuinely love how fucking weird our world is getting. Especially in the world of burlesque! In lovely NYC, Rosey La Rouge and the sassy ladies of Storybook Burlesque put together a Muppet Show-themed evening of sultry delights! Hit the cute for several more pics of these fabulous boys and girls in action! I think I may have a little crush on Cookie Monster…

Little know fact: This is one of my favourite songs in the world. Now I will never be able to listen to it without thinking of Miss Piggy gyrating on Rolf’s piano. Fuck.
