Jim Henson was born 75 years ago today. Not a day goes by without something Muppet-related in my life. I don’t think any entertainer, any innovator, has had a larger hand in shaping my life and my capacity for imagination and my compassion than Jim Henson.

You all know how I feel about the necessity and success of the reboot so far. Here are my thoughts on what I read this week.

Dear People Who Called Me a Whiny Asshole Who Wanted a Free Lunch for Being Upset About Netflix, But Are Today Whining About the New Facebook Layout,
Fuck you, crybabies.
Drunk on your self-righteous hypocrite tears,
Instead of doing a Halloween banner, I've decided to just do a fall banner with Veronica. I'm enjoying the whole Veronica theme here on Electronic Cerebrectomy. And since Becca did that lettering job for me, well, here it is. I dig it the most. It's the biggest banner I've ever had, but hey, it's Ronnie!
A review of the film I saw this week.

As of today, the great Don't Ask, Don't Tell compromise is repealed. It's not the end of the road for LGBT acceptance in the military, of course--read this editorial here for an idea of what gay servicemembers have ahead of them and how they should be combating prejudice--but a great disservice to human dignity has been cast aside. In the endless struggle to have all people recognized as people, and the inexplicable-in-the-21st-Century need to fight against legislated prejudice.
It's sad that even as one piece of legislation against difference dies, another blossoms. In North Carolina, the state senate has voted in favor of banning gay marriage through a constitutional amendment. There's an excellent post I recommend right here.
Michael De Pippo has created five amazingly awesome retro-style concert posters for Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. The Dr. Teeth poster is my favorite, but they're all fantastic. What I wouldn't give to buy a set of these! Head on over to his site to check out all five of them.

My favorite Dylan song, which makes it one of my favorite ever. I haven't had Bob on the Song of the Week since 2008, so it's about time. And it's a good song about not giving a damn, which I really don't right now. Enjoy.
