Ow, My Head

As I'm stinkingly hungover and it feels like a pig shat in my head, it's definitely a video posting day for you lovely people. It's Henson related again today - in the 50s, he came to fame with a series called Sam And Friends which featured sketches as well as lip syncing to popular songs. The first clip is an example of the sort of thing that's still being done today - using re-edited, out-of-context clips to create a sketch. The second clip is unfortunately not the full Sam And Friends sketch but is a track that I've become obsessed with so thought I'd share it. Spread the wealth, I say.

I wanted to say how much I love the Muppets! I've made my kids watch as many episodes on YouTube as I can...They actually like it!

And I love that old balck magic!!!

Take an aspirin and get a nap...you'll feel better Sweetie!

Have a Cheeky Day!

I think it might actaully be illegal to not love the Muppets. There has to be a law against that...

You can't beat a bit of Withnail. (Well, we obviously have impeccable taste, I'd say...)
