I came across the official 40 year Sesame Street anniversary photo a few days ago…
I added in a few characters that were missing from my childhood and some of my recent favorites (click to enlarge).
It is great to see the older Sesame Street episodes with my family. Murray and his “Word on the Street” episodes are our absolute favorites.
UPDATE 7/20/21 : Doubled the resolution, changed the base blue background, and added a rainbow to Elmo. Thumbnail should open a full size version.
It is a terrible Star Wars joke. But it does show that the email posts and app posts go through after the updates and changes to the hosting. Cross posts to Twitter and Instagram also seem solid.
And yes, I made this myself.
Right. Back to blogging!
I’ve been a big fan of Zen Pencils for some time, and this particular poster has always been my favorite.
To everyone out there fighting the good fight… never give up.
Zen Pencils and Calvin Coolidge : Never give up
Here’s a movie I would love to see: Samuel Jackson as Darth Vader.
Completely different movie!
Back when I was 18, most of the celebrities I liked were a good 5-10 years older than I was.
Now that I’m slightly older here in 2015, a good portion of these same celebrities from before are now 3-5 years younger than I am!
Either (A) I’m traveling through time faster than everyone else, or (B) there’s a still a prevalent, ignorant prejudice in our society about the honor and grace of aging naturally.
Aging is a tremendous blessing when you consider the sole alternative! With aging, you gain…
- Tremendous wisdom you can pass on to others who don’t want to hear it
- Experience that warns you not to do something, but you do it anyway because this time it might finally be different
- An uncanny mastery of specialized trivia
- A lot of stuff for garage sales
- The ability to fix things most people think is broken forever
- A retrospective that sometimes requires a slight intoxication to re-process
- Uh…. well… other stuff I can’t think of right now.
So, yeah, aging is wonderful. It’s cool! It’s hip! It’s happening! (literally)
Buuuut I’m at that age where there’s no way in hell I’m going to tell you my age. Catch-22. Now get off my lawn.
So there I was, just “screening” cartoons for my Godson, when I saw this little tidbit from an old Foghorn Leghorn cartoon…
That maybe might have meant something else back then. But NOW?
No, sorry, m’boy. Them cartoons, I say, them cartoons I usedta watch as a young ‘un ain’t a-ppropriate no more. Lets shoot some things on that thar Xbox you got instead.
So this occurred to me last night…
KUNG FURY just got posted to YouTube.
Is it a comedy? An action movie? A throwback to all that was wrong with the 80’s? Is it so bad it’s actually brilliant?
Check it out…
Whoever decided to try and sell something named KuKui near Mexico has either (a) never done any market research in their life or (b) has a particularly vicious sense of humor.
For the rest of the world that has no idea what a KuKui is, it’s a very famous folktale monster told to misbehaving kids around Mexico. “You better behave, or the KuKui will get you!”
The closest thing to a KuKui in the US is the “boogeyman”, but saying “you better behave, or the boogeyman will get you” isn’t even close to the kind of terror mentioning a KuKui can bring.
You know, now that I’m thinking about it, maybe I should have bought a bottle. For research purposes, of course.
