Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2002 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.
Leonard and I saw The Muppets Take Manhattan on Saturday evening. We borrowed a copy from Michelle when we serendipitously hung out with Seth, Andy, and Michelle that same day and we noodled on guitar and dulcimer and synthesizer. Gosh, I love the Muppet movies. Next, I'd love to see some of the old television Muppet Shows from decades back.
I hadn't seen the film for about a decade, and thus noticed new jokes. At one point, describing one such joke to Steve, I used the phrase, "the diaspora of Muppets," and Steve loved it. I think "Muppet diaspora" is right up there with "Texas in a bottle," according to him.
