Jim Henson is awesome! I grew up loving the Muppets and the Storyteller series! I've driven past the Jim Henson Studios on a number of occassions and wondered what it would be like to work there.

And as for cereal, you are NOT alone. I hate milk in cereal, not to the point of being ill, but I really can't stand it. Dry cereal is awesome! Especially Chex Mix.

And congrats/good luck towards a healthy pregancy /birth of your first babe. Very cool :)

hahahahah! I get sick about it too....I can't stand seeing crunchy stuff get waterlogged and soggy. Wet dog food floating in a dog's waterbowl grosses me out too....I suppose that would gross anybody out.

Cool, you have driven past Henson studios? I'm jealous. They are in Chaplin's old building which is haunted I guess!!!! A few years ago my wife and I tried to look for their original workshop in New York, but it was getting dark and we decided to head back. i would love to work for them too!

thanks on the baby congrats!

Are you a fan of the Dark Crystal? the sequel is out next year! Whooo hoo!

I see a lot of dudes missing parts of fingers (or whole fingers, or whole hands) at work, but that's what I get for working in a steel fabrication shop. I guess it kinda comes with the territory.

I'm not a big fan of milk on my cinnamon oast crunch. I like it better dry!

One of the girls I work with had her first bebe in April (a girl) - she and her boyfriend we going to name her Jayden up until the last minute when they realized that there were a lot of Jaydens in the local birth announcements (also, didn't Britney spears name her kid Jayden? I'm not up on these things) so they ended up "making up" a name - Jayla. Kid's seriously cute, has been sleeing the whole night since the night they brought her home. I'm talking like 8pm to 8am, with maybe, MAYBE a 2 am diaper change or feeding.

I just know my first kids are gonna be colicky triplets, I just know it.

I am going to have to learn to clean up diapers and all that fun stuff. My brother and his wife just had a girl and it is fun to see him interact with her. i painted a big elephant on her wall. Do your nieces and nephews try to get you to draw stuff for them? :)

Yes they are always nagging me to draw for them, lol and every time i visit them they have like 5000 pics they have made that they want me to look at and approve, so silly. :giggle: also i love that u say diaper!!! i call em nappies, hehehehe

I experience that with family friends with younger kids. Usually during holiday visits, the kids will have me drawing all night...my hand gets numb.

I do school visits too sometimes and the kids all draw me pictures. i have a bunch of them at home...very cool!!!! It's also an honor when the kids draw their interpretations of your own characters.

Cool!!...is "Nappie" the usual term for disposable baby shorts in the UK? Awesome!

2)I love milk and cereal. I am dependant on it, lol. XD
3) I am terrified of vampires when I was young.
4)My idol and inspiration is Shigeru Miyamoto (the only thing we have in commom is that we have a dreams to create the best video games and that we are both total geeks!...errr did I just say that out loud? XD). I wish I could write to him. Jim Henson is awesome, I remember watching Kermit the frog shows when I was little.
5)My fave comedian is James Arnold Taylor and Patton Ostwald as well! He rules voicing Remy in Ratatouille.
6)Half an inch of my left index finger was gone and regrown as well! I was running through a closing door.
7)I have a huge crush on Drew Barrymore...WTH?!?!?!
8)I collect helpful newspaper cuttings for art reference and other things and I collect cute little things.

I must say that I share the love for Jim Henson.. I was a muppet-style puppeteer & prop/set painter for quite a few years, too. :heart:

Patton Oswald played Remy in Ratatouille, right? He's a cool guy ^^

and um.. ouch!! were they able to re-attach your finger, or do you just have an odd hollow nail now?

Hey Kat!

You were a puppeteer? Cool!! Did you build them?

Thanks o n the congrats!

Yes Patton did the voice of Remy...his show is very adult...unlike his Pixar work...hilarious.

It was basically a chunk of flesh that got cut out....like a pie wedge....gross! It all fileld back i nand the remnant nail grew back. the finger is kind of flat i n the middle but unnoticeable.

I built a couple. .I wouldn't call myself an expert on it though ;) *looks for a picture* there, I built a couple like these with one of my friends on a prop-making day. [link] I don't think they were around then though. maybe they took our idea from one of the competitions? all I know is that andrew and i did the designs and making of them... *shrug* oh, and we did something very similar to this guy too. we put feet on him though. [link]
made some candle puppets to go on a giant birthday cake thing... come to think of it, I've only made blacklight puppets.. :hmm:
*ramble ramble* I miss doing it, but our team broke up a couple years ago due to half of the folks leaving for college and others moving and such.. I miss it. *sigh*

that really is interesting with your finger.. :O_o:

those are cool puppets!!!...are they foam? I've built some in the past...but they were kind of oxy and heavy...weird looking too. I was at the Burning Man Festival in 2002 and I built a foam lobster costume...very cheesey looking...all spray painted...I could have started on fire!

Oh freaky..! I've always wanted a dancing lobster costume :lol: Burning Man Festival, eh? sounds interesting..

Yea, the exterior was made from hard sculpted foam stuff, then covered with blacklight-active microfiber fleece. For the hand piece, we also attached long black stockings to the back to hide our arms... the inside was plywood, electrical tape, elastic straps, and more micro fleece for comfort..

I'm really hoping to get back into that in a few years. :dance: tons of fun.

My idol was a japanese comic book writer called Yasuhiro Naito... I sent him a mail telling how I admired his work not for the action he made, but for the ideas he put on his comics so we can think about it...

There are a lot of people in comics that I have emailed and never heard anything back from....kind of dissapointing but I know they are very busy!

Once I wrote to William Shatner (Captain Kirk) and I got back these cheesey flyer about joining his fan club and fan newsletter that featured health tips, jewelry designed by his wife and Shatner Family reciepes ! Huh??!!

:( Sigh, yes, you are right...
Are you sure it was really Will Shatner that wrote you the letter and not one of his commercial assistents?! Because if I was in his place, I'd think it would be out of question to send such a shallow mail to a fan O.o

hahahahah!

It was one of his assitants I'm sure...but I did hear that Shatner is an egomaniac! But I still love the guy. My sister-in-law sat behind him at the opening of "Spamalot" on Broadway!! She said he was getting irritated by people pestering him..i don't blame him.

I hate to admit this...I feel like such a traitor....I've dressed as an evil clown or mime...for the past 5 years at Halloween. I should post pictures.....I looked terrifying. i must have done it for therapy. Trying to deal with the absolute terror of looking at a clown's face in the mirror and realizing it is me in makeup.

I've had a few clown-run-ins i nthe past few years too....FREAKY...do you have any scary encounters?

And yes, I want to see those pictures! :#1:

I've been lucky cause I've never had a close encounter with a clown, but I remember watching Stephen King's "IT"....and oh boy, that clown freaked me out!
I had never liked clowns because they seemed so sad to me (instead of funny) but after watching that movie they just became creepy :O

A friend of mine told me that once he was walking down the street very early in the morning and saw a guy,( I think it was a mime that performed in the streets), and he was putting his make up on, and they looked at each other (there was nobody besides them there) and the mime had this evil look, as if he had been caught naked because he didn't have his "mask" on...he kept looking at my friend until he passed him by....

Just by hearing the story I can imagine the strange situation and I'm glad it wasn't me the one who saw him :fear:

okay thanks because.... I'm going to have nightmare about that story now. HAHAHAHA HOW CREEPY!!!!!

I remember when I was a kid...my family went to a show at Sea World in Florida and there was a mime harassing people before the show. He had a big crate he would climb out of.....one time he took this woman into the crate with him, and then he started "rocking" the crate....when the woman walked out of the crate he stood up and was wiping his brow...hahahah WHAT A PERVERT!

I saw "IT" years ago and Pennywise scared the hell out of me. I used to watch the Bozo show as a kid and he would freak me out too. He seemed kind of angry.
