this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I'm a big fan of The Muppets. The TV shows, the old movies, the new movies, the Walt Disney World 3D show, pretty much all of it.
Well, they are going to have a new TV show this Fall, and I for one, am looking forward to it and all the memes it is sure to create.
It may be time to light the lights.ABC is filming a proof of concept for a revival of The Muppets, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.The Big Bang Theory co-creator Bill Prady is co-writing the script for a pilot presentation that sources say could be unspooled at May's upfront presentation to Madison Avenue advertisers. Sources tell THR that the project, if all goes well, could go straight to series.
In tragic Muppet news, Jerry Nelson (voice of The Count, among others), has died at the age of 78.
A little info and plenty of memories via the link. RIP.
Per Greg Smith's revelation that Goldman calls certain clients 'muppets', our endearing tradition now has a new cultural reference. Discuss. Also, "rip their faces off" is not entirely Goldman's creation either.
Note: For those not interested in financial services world happenings, feel free to pass by to the next topic.
As my 'joined' date suggests I've been a pretty regular user (and infrequent poster) for almost a year now, and a regular reader / follower for even longer. I've been attending Michigan football games for over five years since my days of visiting U of M football games in the students' section of the Big House (I'm a Grand Valley graduate, but having spent my freshman year at U of M - Flint, had their equivalent of an M-Card which granted me access to the student section. I digress). I made it to the SDSU game this past weekend and, for the first time ever, stayed to watch the band play as people were filing out of the stadium. To my surprise, closing off their post-game show, the band played "Temptation", followed by the announcer saying "...and you can't have one without the other", proceeded by the Hawaiian chant we are so wont to see posted here on MGoBlog after glorious Michigan victories.
This particular bit of diction from the announcer was of course more than familiar to me as a regular MGoFanatic, and caused me to wonder, "Did that announcer just totally rip-off Brian?" If so, that's hilarious and awesome, but I couldn't be sure if he's always done it, and Brian's useage of it is an homage to the announcer. So, which is it? I'm genuinely curious.
My apologies if this is common knowledge or has been previously discussed. As mentioned above, this was my first time staying to listen to the band after the game - I usually just leave.
