Welcome to the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational blog since Kermit left just a little bit of the swamp in his pants.

Gonzo's Lament

This looks familiar
Vaguely familiar
Almost unreal, yet
It's too soon to feel yet
Close to my soul, and yet
So far away
I'm going to go back there someday

Sun rises, night falls
Sometimes the sky calls
Is that a song there?
And do I belong there?
I've never been there
But I know the way
I'm going to go back there someday

Come and go with me
It's more fun to share
We'll both be completely
At home in mid air
We're flying, not walking
On featherless wings
We can hold on to love
Like invisible strings

There's not a word yet
For old friends who've just met
Part heaven, part space
Or have I found my place?
You can just visit
But I plan to stay
I'm going to go back there someday
I'm going to go back there someday

Moving right along: I hope that something better comes along. Can you picture that?

Absolutely, Anonymous.

Ain't it a great flick?

(But maybe you're telling me to hurry up and post something worthwhile. In which case, I'll say: Never before, never again.)

(Or, slightly more cryptically - but essentially the same idea - The first time it happens, you'll know.)

i never know until it happens again, and then i'm like...Oh...that really was...

I don't know what you guys are talking about, but that's what you made me think about. So i posted the first thing that popped into my head.

reference to one of the muppet movies. The one where aliens come and Gonzo is looking for his parents.

I think.

BEviS??

Actually, the above post lists the lyrics to the song "I'm Going To Go Back There Someday", which is Gonzo's sad-ish, reflective song towards the end of The Muppet Movie, but Elaine is also right because they 'remixed' the track for Muppets From Space and played it over the closing credits.

I don't think the remix sounds as good, but it's the only copy I have, so Little Faerie Girl's mixed CD includes this version with the crappy beat playing underneath it (which, for my money, spoils it a little). But LFG is yet to comment on this song as it will presumably appear in part two of her review.

Anonymous (whoever it was) then listed three other song titles from The Muppet Movie (Movin' Right Along, I Hope That Something Better Comes Along, and Can You Picture That?), which sounded like a sentence (of sorts). I replied with another song title from the same movie (Never Before, Never Again), and then ("slightly more cryptically") a song title from The Great Muppet Caper (The First Time It Happens [You'll Know]).

So I was really just indulging in my nerdism a bit. My apologies for leaving everyone else behind. :)

Thank you Auburn and Elaine!

Anonymous was me under a cryptic ID for a cryptic comment. And yes, the first Muppet movie is head and shoulders above the rest (at least that is my recollection - it's been a few years).

Shocked to hear you don't have the CD though Bevis. I have it - if you can't get hold of it because of legitimate availability issues I'd be happy to sort you out. (Meaning I generally don't like to copy CDs, but if the thing genuinely isn't in print any more I'll help out a needy fan).

I think I'm having heart palpitations!

I haven't been able to find the darn thing anywhere ... let's chat, SBR!

I'll send you an email.

I think I love you.

(But please don't let that deter you!)
