I hate what they have done to my Sesame Street. I was watching when Mr. Hooper was still alive.

kidgenius: Is the guy on a service contract to come fix the murals as people inevitably rub up against them and screw em up?


You can buy sealer that protects the chalk from smudges.

I am going to guess this was not intended to be a permanent installation... So smudges mudges...

Rufus Lee King: trappedspirit: bim1154: What is really ironic (if I may use the word) is that I worked in Des Plaines at the time Gacy was doing his thing.

You can use that word if there is some strange reason it would be ironic for you to be working in Des Plaines at that time. Otherwise, if there is nothing ironic about it, you probably should stop using that word.

Would you please not start that?


What? Differentiating between 'ironic' and 'coincidental'? Is that too high brow for fark now? Vocabulary...

Enough with the Muppets already. Just grow up.

Living your adult life trying to pretend you have friends made of felt is a pathetic and sad existence.

Just drop the childhood fantasy and get back to real work.

You never can tell on Fark what part of what you say will get dissected.


If you are not familiar with the difference between 'ironic' and 'coincidental' then welcome to fark. There's even an IRONIC tag that gets misused almost daily.

Nowhereman: Anyone else seen the documentary on Kevin Clash, the voice and puppeteer of Elmo? It's on netflix and totally worth checking out.


I saw it on PBS about a week ago, and was amazed. The people that bring Sesame Street to life are
are so incredibly talented and creative that it's just stunning. It was so amazing to see him teaching
other puppeteers and showing them how to make this alter-ego seem as alive as possible. It's also
just gut wrenching when they show the puppeteers singing through their felt and foam selves at Jim Henson's
funeral..

Walls are big chalkboards: meta-metaphor...;)
 
2012-04-26 07:00:50 PM
I am so in awe of the people who can do this. To literally have that talent at one's fingertips ...

I remember once watching a young woman doing something similar on the sidewalk. With nothing more than some pastel chalks she drew these fantastic art works on the cement. What really got me was the speed she created at. And these were 10'x4' or so compositions.She would pick up the chalk, and with the simple hand motion and speed you or I would use to brush away a layer of dust, she could bring out her art from void. No mistakes, no do overs, just switching colors every now and then, with a detached focus I've never seen before or since.

Her works were easily worthy of a gallery, but from what I saw on other spots, it all was simply washed away in the rain.

One of the selling points for me of my new job is that they have IdeaPaint (whiteboard paint) walls.

Ah, the Fort George Brewery: what happens when you take Portland baristas who were too big of pretentious, self-absorbed dicks even for that city, put them in a small city in the middle of nowhere to push shiatty beer* (that even Pabst would be too embarrassed to sell) as though it were some exquisite, fine craft microbrew in between sessions spent ignoring patrons to drink with friends in the back or employing their useless art majors to draw fine art spoofs on the chalkboard rather than legibly list information customers require to order anything to go with their nearly as bad and overpriced food.

*Reserving judgment on their stout. I've not tried it yet to see if it's as nasty as the rest of their beers.
 
2012-04-26 08:04:44 PM
Oh.

And the beer metaphor.

Look, I have imbibed many a great beer over my years, appreciate many, love some, remember few, and nowadays,

I'd not snob about beer if I were leading by example, so I don't.

Local beer is best.

Duh.

Sesame Street today isn't nearly as cool as it was 30 years ago. Now it's too sanitized and "politically correct".

Gunny Walker: I hate be a Debbie Downer, but what about the dust? Asthma and carpet cleaning sucks.


As the wife of the one with the magnetic chalkboard kitchen, I can say it's not very dusty. I mean, if you were doing giant chalk drawings all the time and erasing them constantly, maybe, but it's less allergenic than dry erase markers by a LOT. Plus we clean ours with a damp sponge or sponge mop. (We're short.)

And if you want a giant chalk drawing to last, IIRC from my chalk drawing friends, hairspray is apparently a good fixative.

We have far, far, more dust problems from the slow breakdown of our ugly-ass carpets, which aren't in the kitchen thank goodness.

WhippingBoy: Gunny Walker: I hate be a Debbie Downer, but what about the dust? Asthma and carpet cleaning sucks.

If chalk dust from a muppet drawing does you in, you probably weren't meant to be in the first place.


You shouldn't be working for Sesame Street, at the very least.

I painted the freezer door of our fridge with chalkboard paint so I could leave notes for Husband (what's for dinner, etc.) or for myself (what we need on grocery day)...Husband uses it to ADD to the grocery list in his own amusing way (ass-juice, turd-dumplings, etc). When I asked him to draw something on it during the holidays, he drew a Christmas tree decorated with penises. It was glorious.

mrlewish: Here is a little ear worm. Your welcome


Sunny Day
Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame Street

Come and play
Everything's A-OK
Friendly neighbors there
That's where we meet

Can you tell me how to get
How to get to Sesame Street

It's a magic carpet ride
Every door will open wide
To Happy people like you--
Happy people like
What a beautiful

Sunny Day
Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way to where the air is sweet

Can you tell me how to get,
How to get to Sesame street...
How to get to Sesame Street
How to get to...
