  Hi!

I am a college student doing a research study for one of my classes. I'm looking for participants over the age of 18 to fill out an online questionnaire regarding various personal attributes. It will be completely anonymous and take approximately 10 minutes.

Thank you so much!

the muppets we all know and love... GONE!?! 
  chantepleure

mood: angry
http://www.savethemuppets.com

For over 30 years, Jim Henson's Muppets have been an enduring, iconic force in entertainment. Underpinning the magic since the very beginning was Jim Henson's strict policy: Each Muppet character can only be performed by his or her specific puppeteer. A bond exists between each Muppet and its performer, creating a spark of individual life which sets the Muppets apart from any other set of family characters.

Kermit the Frog was only ever performed by his creator, Jim Henson, from his very first appearance until Jim’s death in 1990. Only then was Kermit entrusted to another puppeteer, Steve Whitmire, who worked closely with Jim and who has carried Kermit’s legacy for over 15 years.

Until now.

Muppets Holding Company, which owns and controls the Muppets on behalf of The Walt Disney Company, has begun to cast multiple performers for the Muppet characters. MHC now considers the established Muppet performers, whose careers and lives are so closely linked with their characters, to be interchangeable with a roster of anonymous puppeteers.

The artists who represent a direct link between Jim Henson and the legacy he left behind are being squeezed out, as MHC creates a fleet of Muppet clones in order to save money and maximize profits.

By recasting the Muppets at will, as if they were mascot costumes to be worn by anybody, MHC is turning the characters into instant stereotypes -- reducing them from complex, three-dimensional beings to a list of mannerisms and catchphrases.

Without consistent performers, the Muppets will no longer be the Muppets. Kermit the Frog will become Kermit "a" Frog. Fifty years of Muppet history is being thrown aside so that MHC can create an assembly-line of not-quite-Muppets. The craftsmen who originated and honed the Muppet characters have been effectively demoted, becoming part of a pool of on-call impressionists, hired day-to-day based on convenience, cost and the whim of MHC.

Already, MHC's plan is seeing fake Muppets being presented to an unsuspecting public: Pale impressions of Statler and Waldorf can now be seen in webisodes at movies.go.com. (Episodes 1-7 are originals; episodes 8 and on are MHC frauds.)

Floundering without their regular performers, Statler and Waldorf are shadows of themselves. Jim Henson's iconic Dr. Teeth and even Frank Oz's Animal are reduced to distant imitations. What next? Cloned Kermits will not be far behind.

One Muppet, One Voice is your chance to let MHC know that you don't want the Muppets to be handed out to the nearest puppeteer and passed off as the real thing.

MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!

Write to Muppets Holding Company and tell them you don't want the Muppet characters to be compromised. Tell them, in your own words, why the Muppets are special to you and why you don't want to see them watered down, farmed out or cloned. Be courteous and polite and let them know why you are concerned for your beloved Muppets. Ask for a reply so you know your concerns have been noted.

You can also give your feedback on the fake Statler and Waldorf appearances at this link: http://movies.go.com/muppets/feedback. Make sure you include your e-mail address so the producers can let you know your voice has been heard.

SPREAD THE WORD!

One Muppet, One Voice is based on the truth that one person CAN make a difference. That person is you.

Tell all the Muppet supporters you know why One Muppet, One Voice is so important.

And make your voice heard!

There's a really nice guy named Larry Lambert who is looking for a reader. Yeah, a reader. He lost most of his eye site when he was 15 in a football injury and now plays guitar all over the country, singing about God and whatever. He just needs someone to read, I'm assuming, his mail, letters, and emails and what not, aloud to him. He's christian.. not that the fact should make you not want the job. Also, this person would be booking shows and things for him locally and nationally. Pay is minimun wage, but he's willing to pay an addition $30/$40 a week out of his pocket. Pay for the booking part, that varies on how much he gets per show. So you could be getting a couple hundred bucks per show! He only needs someone for about 10 or so hours a week. He wants people to come in this weekend for interveiws. For more detailed information email him @ LarryLambert@earthlink.net

Dogs Getting Shot in Louisiana

  In this video clip, a Dallas Morning News photojournalist reports that authorities are now shooting homeless, ownerless dogs that have survived in New Orleans.

Please donate to help dogs get food, water, and shelter instead of letting them get shot--and nobody even checks to see if they're still alive after being shot once...

Help animals devastated by Katrina! 
  gummybeartheory
 
09:47am 08/09/2005
  Posting this from another journal in an effort to help the animals:

Transport Provided to Anywhere - Room Desperately Needed! (For the Animal Victims of Katrina)

There is transportation provided, with people ready and waiting, for upwards of 200 dogs and 150 cats so far rescued from the devastation of hurricane Katrina. What these animals need is a place to go. Kennels, boarding, vets offices, shelters with any extra space, foster homes and rescues. Even one or two open kennels would greatly help.

From what we know, all animals have been vaccinated and are in good health considering the conditions. There are dogs and cats of every breed and size. Some are in groups of two, three or four, hailing from the same family, while some are solitary. ANY KENNEL SPACE AVAILABLE CAN CERTAINLY BE USED. These drivers are willing to move these animals ANYWHERE they need to go. Absolutely anywhere.

The current safe houses for these animals are being inundated and some of these pets will have to be euthanized if they are not moved to make room for the incoming animals.

Please feel free to pass on this information everywhere. Every forum, every list, every community.

REMEMBER THESE ANIMALS WILL BE TRANSPORTED TO YOU.

If you know anyone, anywhere, that is willing to take in even one cat or dog, please have them contact Lynda at the information provided below.

They are also asking for ANY kind of donations for the animals - money, food, bedding, water, etc.

Please Contact Lynda V. at: 203 515 3024 (cell)
Home: 203 227 5308
Email: Lynda@portone.com

Please contact at any time, day or night. These volunteers, rescuers and shelter workers are working around the clock.
