MuppeTED

Kermit the Frog (Steve Whitmire) does a TEDTalk at the TEDx in Jackson, Mississippi. A last-minute add to the program (the video starts with Sir Ken Robinson talking the famous frog out of cancelling), it's 20 minutes on Creativity and how to unleash it, with quotes from Jim Henson (obviously), Sir Ken, Salvador Dali and others, plus a few Muppet-centric jokes.*
Not the first Muppet contribution to TED: Scooter of The Muppet Show (David Rudman) had previously briefly covered the conflict between Tactile and CG characters (he's obviously very pro-tactile). And Sesame Street's Cookie Monster (also Rudman) 'helped' ultramarathon champion Scott Jurek talk about healthy foods and exercise at TEDMED. [more inside]

Z is for Zelda, Zeppelin, Zombie and Zardoz "for comic relief"

Alphabet Blocks for a Geek Baby "Amateur engineer/designer" Jonathan M. Guberman made his newborn son a set of custom engraved wooden alphabet blocks, with "things that his mother and I were looking forward to sharing with him" on 4 of the 6 sides. (See them all here) "The only real rule I followed in choosing subjects was trying to maintain an even gender balance" which makes them even more awesome. (Of course, your choices for certain letters may vary)

It's excruciatingly painful being green

Kermit has not done well since the death of Jim Henson...He's covered some sad songs , poured his heart out on myspace and picked up a new addiction.

Never look at Kermit the same way again.

Things that go moo in the night. We've all heard of the possessed Raggedy Anne doll, the eBay haunted painting, and the talking mongoose. But what about the rest, the dancing cows, the evil muppets, and the Kermit-like, child-molesting frogs? Ludicrous enough to be true?
