Happy Birthday Frank Oz

Not only is Frank Oz the puppeteer and voice of Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Cookie Monster, Bert, and Grover, but he has directed some of my favorite comic films. And of course he is the man behind Jedi Master Yoda. Sounds like it's time for a Frank Oz film fest, but which one to watch first? Little Shop of Horrors is a hoot, with Rick Moranis and Ellen Greene an adorable couple, Audrey II as a very impressive space alien plant, and Steve Martin as a particularly creepy dentist....more

Happy Star Wars Day: May the Fourth Be With You!

It is worse than smoking, drinking and general carousing on a school night. It it much, much worse than forgetting your mother's birthday.It's so bad that I am embarrassed to even be talking about it.My son, my precious child, my one and only son, has started to say "I can't."...more
