{Inspiration} Kevin Clash

It's Friday... & being true to my 2012 self, I hunkered down with another good documentary tonight. Nothing like rounding out this week of "Muppet Love" with  Being Elmo. A friend on facebook recommended this documentary to me this week after seeing  my "Muppet or a Man" post. (Incidentally- we've been singing that song along with the whole Muppet Movie soundtrack non-stop for days.) I'm so glad she brought this film to my attention- as I'm not exactly sure how this one slipped by me.  Learning about Elmo creator, Kevin Clash's puppeteering journey, was exactly the kind of inspiration I needed to start the weekend. While it's true, I've always dreamed of working for Jim Henson, you don't need to be a puppeteer want-to-be, to love this movie. So, Being Elmo gets my "inspiration" pick of the week.  Happy Weekend!

{Music Monday} Muppet love...

I'm a big Flight of the Conchords fan & of course I love the Muppets, so I was really happy to see Bret McKenzie's Man or Muppet take home the Oscar for best song tonight. I believe I let out a happy yelp when they called Bret's name. So, how could I not post this video today?  Did you watch the Academy Awards? Who were your favorite nominees & winners?  
Happy Music Monday
