Because now we need something mindless and silly and fun to balance out all the other stuff, I'd just like to say OMG THE MUPPET MOVIE OPENS IN THEATERS TODAY I AM SO EXCITED!!!11!!!1!

Ahem. I have always loved the Muppets, all throughout childhood and up until now. I was heartbroken when pieces of the company were sold off, one by one, during the early-to-mid oughties - and subsequently gleeful when they bought back pieces, though not quite what they were. I've been dying for more Muppet media, and I have to admit I'm going to be sad now that the hype has culminated in the release date. My inbox has been filled with youtube updates of Muppet promotions, and my twitter feed (thanks to @MuppetsStudio and @ToughPigs) has been filled with fun news articles and things. I don't want it to stop! Ah well.

I'm sharing a few of my favorite Muppet/Jason Segel related things. :D

-Clips of Jason Segel hosting Saturday Night Live with special guests The Muppets! I recorded last week's SNL, and it was awesome for three reasons: 1) MUPPETS; 2) Jason Segel is actually the most adorable man that's ever lived; 3) Florence and the Machine were the musical guests. Oh, Flo. You so crazy. My favorite of the three clips is #2 (the "REALLY?!" skit), mainly because Seth looked like he was having a really good time. XD However, if you look closely in the last skit (#3), you can see Flo in the background as a Massachusetts bar patron. I'm endlessly amused by this.

-American Way Magazine scans. I've read a lot of promotionals and articles over the last several months related to this movie, but this one is my favorite. This is the one that won me over to the sheer adorability that is Jason Segel. They're high-quality scans, and it's a really wonderful read.

-Bakerella: The Muppets Cake Pops. Guys! Recipe and instructions for making 5 Muppet cake pops! I was looking forward to my nephew coming to visit me this week, and had planned on making a big deal out of spending a day goofing around in the kitchen making these cake pops before taking him to see the movie. Well, he isn't coming now, but I MIGHT MAKE THESE ANYWAY. Because they're adorable and fun. I'm definitely printing the instructions, anyway.

And, finally, this - because it's just too cute:

Jason Segel and Kermit the Frog's original video inviting Amy Adams to be in Disney's The Muppets.

Check out those special effects, man!

Alice Cooper and Miss Piggy. ...I'm not sure what to make of this.
ladyoflorien: (Weird: BSB Howie is weird)
Yes, you heard me right. There's new BSB news! Backstreet News )

All this news sparked some rather amusing conversation between myself, [livejournal.com profile] jedi_bria, and [livejournal.com profile] bstem03. Ha, it's been like old times. I feel like a teenager again. It's kind of fun! Snippets from our amusing chats )

More goodies!

Serenity Collector's Edition photos. *in creepy gollum voice* Oohh my precious! Mommy want!

HAHAHAHA! Wo-ho-hooooww. Wow. Just when I thought Japan held the monopoly on crack-assed live-action dramas. This is just great. Like seriously? I'll be singing that song when no one is around for the rest. of. my. LIFE. Thank you, R. Kelly. I may buy pirate your DVD.

Amusing anime cross-over: FMA vs Ouran Host Club. This is one of the funniest comics I've seen in a while. Just the idea of Full-Metal Alchemist and Ouran together is... wow. "Boooom-ness" is right. ;)

An unofficial list of the best sci-fi/fantasy films. I found the list quite interesting, so I thought I'd share. I also followed a link on that page to a Johnny Depp article, and snagged this line to share: "Imagine this profile covered with dark, deep, delicious chocolate and fresh raspberries with a dash of musky wood, tobacco and sweat." Um, okay, perfect description of Johnny Depp ever? I do think so. Seriously, I read that and thought "How cool!" Not since an old fanfic several years ago where they described a character as smelling like "rich brown leather and cinnamon gum" have I found a description such as that perfect prose. Because, yeah, that's how I picture Johnny Depp. So true.

Quizzes
I also took a rather interesting Color test the other day. It comes out fairly accurate, but inaccuracies considered it's completely determined on the order in which you pick colors. Heh, neat.

Ha! This is the first time I haven't gotten Fozzie as my result! Heh, the write-up about me seems fairly accurate too...


All right, I'm going away for the weekend so I gotta jet! See you all on Sunday!
