Girls have terrible blogs. I won’t say I don’t have a girl blog myself, but at least I don’t post (see: reblog) pictures of librarianesque waifs holding balloons in a forest and pictures of my bare feet.
I’d like to think that I like some girly-esque photos but really I’m pretty eclectic. Sure I like a pretty picture but mostly I love funny stuff.
I have no problem admitting that I am a HUGE Muppet fan. Whether we’re talking about the Disney-owned Muppets (like Kermit, Fozzie and Gonzo) or the Sesame Workshop Muppets or the Fraggles — I’m just a fan. Recently, the Muppets have made a comeback of sorts, on YouTube of all platforms and another new movie is in the works.
"Flight of the Conchords’" James Bobin will be directing "The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time" and The Playlist says that they’ve got the plot synopsis. Check it out:
The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time is about Gary, Mary, and Walter (a man, his girlfriend, and the man’s life-long nondescript, brown puppet best friend) getting the old Muppet gang — now retired entertainers known for the same Muppet show we know them from — together to save the TV studio that the original show was shot in. A villain, Tex Richman (nice name, on par with Doc Hopper), bent on drilling for oil underneath the studio, is due to take over the studio in weeks and the only way to stop him? Putting on a show that draws ten million viewers.
Even cooler? The script is being written by Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segel. You might recall that Stoller directed Segal in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" — a film that had an epic “Dracula” musical starring puppets (made by the Jim Henson Company, no less).
"Flight of the Conchords" and Jason Segel? Count me in!
I had a dream last night that was one of those dreams that feels so real, like it was actually happening. I rarely have these kinds of dreams, in fact I rarely dream at all as I am such a light sleeper I just don’t get into a good deep sleep which is why I often feel completely drained and tired even after 8 hour of sleep. But last night’s dream was almost too intense. Basically I felt the deepest love ever. I felt it, I held it and then my alarm went off. I’ve never felt love like that in real life. I feel kind of heartbroken now. To taste it and have it fade away is sort of just sad and weird.
Okay, so (500) Days Of Summer actress Zooey Deschanel’s new project isn’t exactly a TV show based on Cameron Crowe’s rock pic, but it does cover some very similar territory. She’s signed on to star in US cable channel HBO’s new pilot, which will be based on the book ‘I’m With The Band: Confessions Of A Groupie’.
Penned by Pamela Des Barres (one of the influences for Penny Lane in Almost Famous), it chronicles her adventures as she bedded musicians and movie stars in the late 1960s.
In her time, Des Barres added the likes of Mick Jagger, Jimmy Page, Don Johnson and many more to the notches on her bed post, but while the life was glamorous and exciting for a time, there was always the prospect of a younger model waiting to take her place.
The half-hour show (assuming it gets picked up beyond the pilot) will chronicle both the highs (some literal, we’d figure, given the era) and the lows in half-hour episodes.
