HAPPY BIRTHDAY to this fine gentleman pictured above… saving an entire village from a crumbling mountain. He’s the bees knees. The pitter-patter in my heart. The butterflies in my stomach. The double shot of espresso in my latte of life.


All I know is that every time I’ve been faced with a tough decision, there’s only one thing that outweighs every other concern. One thing that will make you give up on everything you thought you knew. Every instinct, every rational calculation. Love. No matter what happens, you gotta forget about all the other stuff. You gotta forget about logic. Your fear and doubt. You just gotta do everything you can to get to the one woman who’s going to make all of this work. At the end of the day, you gotta jump.

While at the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria for the Jim Henson exhibit, we were able to make our own flipbook (which we purchased) and play around with stop-motion-animation!

This is our little stop-motion film. Quick… but crustaceans win in the end!
