...And before I forget (Jim Henson)
Jim Henson's birthday is tomorrow.
One of my favorite people in the entire universe. Jim Henson, apart from being an inventor, comedian, musician (kindof), puppeteer, moviemaker, director, and all-around genius, was a really great guy. The creator of Sesame Street, the Muppets, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, Fraggle Rock, and other such gems of our youth, he will be sorely missed by everyone who loves his work and who appreciates greatness.
"I believe that we form our own lives, that we create our own reality, and that everything works out for the best. I know I drive some people crazy with what seems to be ridiculous optimism, but it has always worked out for me." -Jim Henson
