We're going to be talking about The Muppets on the show tonight.
Today we celebrate the anniversary of the 1979 release of The Muppet Movie. Se let's make a rainbow connection and chat about these beloved characters that have an new show on ABC this fall.
Scott Smith and Jim Hensen
January Jones-Scott Smith-The Muppets!
Jim Henson's Muppets revolutionized puppetry. Frustrated by the limitations of traditional puppets, Henson made his creatures more lifelike, gave them memorable personalities and used them to make learning fun for kids. And he promoted a better world as he entertained adults.
Time magazine listed him among the 20th century's 100 most influential people, alongside the Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg.
"My father really worked hard but enjoyed his work so much he seemed relaxed, personifying the notion of flow in work," daughter Lisa Henson, CEO of Jim Henson Co., told IBD. "He had so much creativity that it didn't seem like work, just being himself."
This episode features a review of Muppets Most Wanted plus an interview with film producer Janet Carrus regarding Musical Chairs, a sweet and inspiring movie about wheelchair ballroom dancing. In the latest Muppet adventure, our heroes become involved in a jewelry heist led by a Kermit lookalike. In Musical Chairs, an aspiring dancer overcomes tragedy by learning to ballroom dance in a wheelchair. With the Muppets and ballroom dancing taking center stage, this should be an intriguing show!
Janet Carrus, producer of Musical Chairs, has transformed many of her own personal inspirations into a variety of projects that empower people living with disabilities. She combined her passions for competitive ballroom dance and disability advocacy to help found a program to teach the astounding art of wheelchair ballroom dance in that community. Carrus’ inspiration to produce films grew directly out of this experience.
Musical Chairs was nominated for a Fred & Adele Astaire Award for Outstanding Feature Film in 2012. In 2013, it received a GLAAD nomination for Best Film in Limited Release and won six awards at the Massachusetts Independent Film Festival.
Janet’s other films include Tio Papi and Remembering Lawrence, a Film for Anna Halprin.

Houston voters flush away ordinance that would allow men to use women’s bathrooms.
President Obama bans the box on Federal Employment Job Applications indicating whether you've ever been convicted of a crime. So now they can't even ask the question? Don't you feel safe now?
Why do they keep trying to make villains into victims? Because gun control is the goal!
Hr2 Melissa Harris-Perry a left-wing activist who frequently rails against the wealthy for not paying enough taxes... has a massive IRS tax lien. Oops!
Bradlee Dean, author, radio show host, speaker, and rock star to our kids with Sons of Liberty... joins Joe to discuss issues with our high school children. To leave out God and Christianity would be to leave out our history. If you don't know your founding documents, then you don't know your rights. If you don't know your rights, then you don't have them. Music opens the door to the heart of the youth.
When is a person not really a person? 6-days-old...
Homeowners association takes offense to man's Christmas display and orders the man remove it. So much for personal property ownership.
Hr3 1st grader suspended over imaginary bow and arrow "aimed" at another student. Was the other student injured? Or did a grown up just overreact? He was pretending to be a superhero!
Muppets no longer family friendly. Another franchise ruined by Liberal Hollywood. Why do they keep having to mess things up?
28-year-old man, homeless, jobless, jailed, with anger issues & life spiraling out of control, he turned it around with this...

GuyGilchrist Publicity2 medGuy Gilchrist cut his cartoon teeth on the stylings of Walter Lantz (Woody Woodpecker), Dr. Seuss and Walt Disney. After high school, Guy was already working on his own children’s books and working for Weekly Reader Books. At the age of 24, he was hand-selected to draw Jim Henson’s The Muppets cartoon strip (which was wildly successful and printed worldwide in over 660 newspapers daily from 1981 – 1986). Throughout the years, Guy has set his hand to such notable cartoons as Looney Tunes, Tom & Jerry,Fraggle Rock and The Pink Panther (to name a few), and was the co-creator of Muppet Babies.

The Average White Guys Gary and Nate discuss the sequel (actually the 7th sequel to the original Muppet Movie) to Disney's The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted. Were we justified in our cameo concerns? Do they uphold the legacy of the Muppets?
We also discuss our first look at the Michael Bay produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the full trailer for X-men: Days of Future Past.

In the latest edition of the Encouragement Group, host David Gerber relates the famous Muppets song to recovery. It's not easy being addicted. It's not easy being in recovery. However, once we accept it and enter into recovery, the doors to peace, serenity and many beautiful things open up. Michael Boccia adds to the discussion by sharing how understanding our past is not an excuse for how we are in the present. Just because it was what it was, does not mean it is what it is. Listen in as miracles will be shared.
