Happy Seventy Sixth Birthday, Jim Henson

it's time to play the music

Don’t worry. This isn’t going to be one of those posts where we show you the most heartwrenching muppets videos we can find. That’s for the anniversary of Jim Henson‘s untimely death at the age of fifty-three. Today, lets just watch him explain how to make puppets, showcasing the magic moment when some bits of wood and cloth become real living things.

And then follow us behind the jump Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody. Because you know you need no excuse to watch that video.

True fact: some friends and I were doing Korean karaoke this weekend and there were two versions of Bohemian Rhapsody in the books. This was one of them.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
