Herb - The Collection

This is Herb.
Mouth Puppet and Collection
This is the closest thing you'll ever get to a real Muppet to own... And I recommend them to everyone!
A great puppet, great collectible, and great fun!
Check out the website by clicking on Herb, you get to pick your own features, clothing, etc... It's way more fun to hit NYC and do it in person though!
I want more! Ha ha ha!!!
I posted him with the tags "Collection" and "Mouth Puppet", since it is a bought puppet, it falls in the collection, but since I did pick out the features I did kinda create Herb too!

Now Over to Puppet News:
The Muppet Movie has been added to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry. Under the terms of the National Film Preservation Act, each year the Librarian of Congress names 25 films to the registry that are "culturally, historically or aesthetically" significant, to be preserved for all time. These films are chosen as works of enduring importance to American culture.

Some mornings I wake up and I think to myself: "Why the Hell did I ever move back to Connecticut?" Today was one of those mornings. So I got up made a pot of cofffee, popped in Prince's latest CD. As the last track, "No More Candy 4 U", started I smiled. And I'm glad I moved back. If I hadn't I would have missed out on my amazing old friends and amazing new ones I've made since being back who never cease to make me laugh, my amazing family who also have words of true encouragment, and an amazing woman who always has my back... Without all of you I'm just a putz with a bunch of puppets...

Thank you, love you, Happy New Year!

Post Holiday Post...

Ahh, Christmas...
This pic is the look on my face when I got a couple of my gifts, the latest Muppet Christmas Special; Letters to Santa, and the new Sesame Street book. And the picture was taken with the new camera she got me (told you she's the best). I've watched Letters to Santa three times now, Christmas night, the night after, and Sunday morning while drinking my coffee and flipping through the book...
And my folks hooked me up too; a new heavy duty sewing maching... I must have been good this year!
Jim, Shane (the new awesome guy) and I also did a live holiday show for a corporate party that went off great, pictures coming soon...
Can't wait for 2010... Elmwood has a lot of puppet stuff up our sleeves...
But for now...
One last time: Merry Christmas and Happy Whatever!
