JGL reinforces the word "reinforce"

Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who formerly occupied a large part of my heart space that is now taken up with Nicholas Hoult, appeared on “Sesame Street” recently, to discuss the finer points of the word “reinforce” with a puppet friend named Murray (Jewish puppet?). To demonstrate the meaning of the word, JGL sacrifices his wristwatch to the wiles of Murray’s hammer, and does some Oscar-worthy acting in the process. [YouTube]

Kevin Clash and Elmo

Noooo! I just watched the documentary “Being Elmo” last month and was obsessed with what an inspiring person Kevin Clash, the man behind “Sesame’s Street”‘s most adorable Muppet, seemed to be. Consider my faith in life dashed if this story turns out to be true.

A young man, now 23 years old, has come forward saying that he had a seven-year relationship with Clash, starting at the age of 16. While Clash admits to the relationship, he denies that it was of a sexual nature until the boy was of age. Keep reading »

  • “Sesame Street” issued a cease-and-desist letter to put the kibosh on Sexy Big Bird’s unauthorized costumes. The letter was directed to Yandy.com, a Halloween costume web site whose multitudes of “sexy” get-ups will have you gagging. The Sesame Street Workshop is not buying that Yandy’s “Exclusive Yellow Dress With Stockings” is not just a straight-up Big Bird knockoff.  [The FW]

10 Memories I Have Of “Sesame Street”

I grew up with parents who were not particularly pro-television. My dad even attached a scarf to the top of our TV and would insist on pulling it down to cover the screen during commercials (he also muted the sound). But one show they were always in favor of me watching was “Sesame Street.” I grew up with Big Bird, Telly, Grover, Oscar, the Count, and all of their human friends and have many amazing memories to show for it. I also believe the show helped instill a love of learning, a sense of compassion, and a genuine curiosity about the world around me. Given that the show has been referenced in the same breath as cutting funding for PBS by Mitt Romney — just to be clear, the show actually receives a very small portion of its funding from PBS, and PBS only takes up .014 percent of the federal budget — I thought it would be a good time to review the show’s significance. Because if anything, these empty threats to “kill Big Bird” should serve as a reminder of why “Sesame Street” is so important.
