MOVIES: Talking 'Muppet Guys Talking' with Frank Oz & Victoria Labalme

The muppet creations of Frank Oz, Jim Henson, and their collaborators are fused into my earliest memories as a kid growing up in the ‘Sesame Street’ generation. The long-running ‘Muppet Show’ followed, as did films, and a new generation of kids is growing up with the characters online and in mobile games.

On March 16, Muppet Guys Talking will be released online, and it’s the first documentary to reveal the unusual creative culture behind Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and all the gang, as told by the living performers behind it all. Read the rest

These over-the-top Muppets shoes are downright inspired

My friend JoAnne Yada shared this quirky collection of Muppets shoes the other night on Facebook and I nearly jumped out of my seat. They're so wild and creative, just like a brand for (a certain type of) inner children should be!

Here's a look at some of them:

This pair of heeled boots is aptly named "She's Hip He's Hop" because it features both Miss Piggy and Kermit...

These "Super Couple" heels also feature the famous pig and frog duo...

Then there's "The Great Gonzo" style, stars and all...

And Kerm-y flats...

These "foot stomping vixen heeled boots" are called "Fierce Piggy"...

While these pig-pink satin heels are called, "All About Moi,"

The next three pairs really crack me up. First Statler and Waldorf get their mugs on a pair with these "Boo Hiss" flats...

Folks who identify with Animal may be drawn to these "Louder Louder" red fake-furried heels...

And the best for last... the "Mahna Mahna" shoes, if for no other reason that they'll implant that earworm in people's head...

The collection is by UK-based Irregular Choice and the shoes range in price from £129.00 to £220.00.

And yes, there are more shoes, as well as matching purses and tights.
