The New Muppet Movie

Late as usual, I just realized that Jason Segel is trying to make a Muppet movie. Awesome. I think people who don't like the Muppets should be beat with a bag of rusty nails.


Dastardly punishments aside, I post the following video as a shout-out to my brother Menelik. I don't even know if he remembers this. The Muppet Show was awesome. I'd get it on DVD, but apparently it's been stricken by Wonder Years disease. They had to cut a large share of the music from the DVDs because of licensing. 

Peace to Jim Henson, who's part of that "conglomerate heap of trash" we're talking about below.
