Going out to dinner with Juan Tamariz in Madrid is a little like accompanying a cartoon character on a journey to the real world. As Shuja Haider, the author of today's Sunday Read, walked with him on side streets off the city center's main drag, the Calle Gran Vía, heads turned left and right.Mr. Tamariz, 80, has been a professional magician for 52 years, and in that time, he has managed the singular feat of becoming both a household name in his home country and a living legend in magic everywhere. David Blaine has called him “the greatest and most influential card magician alive.” But in Spain, Mr. Tamariz is an icon, less like Mr. Blaine or David Copperfield and more like Kermit the Frog.In the United States, the most visible performers of magic in the late 20th century were stage illusionists who worked with big boxes and flashing lights. But Mr. Tamariz appears on stage and screen armed with little more than his two hands. He introduced Spanish viewers to the style of magic called “close-up,” done with ordinary objects, in near-enough proximity for a conversation and incorporating the participation of spectators.This story was recorded by Audm.

Kermit Zarley is a professional golfer who played on the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour. He is also the author of several books.Zarley was born in Seattle, Washington. He graduated from the University of Houston and was a distinguished member of the golf team. He was the individual champion at the 1962 NCAA Division I Championships and also led his team to victory.Zarley had three dozen top-10 finishes in PGA Tour events during his 18 years on Tour including three wins. Zarley had three top-10 finishes in major championships; his best was a solo 6th at the 1972 U.S. Open. Zarley won once on the Senior/Champions Tour. On both Tours, he finished second or tied for second seventeen times.Due to his unusual name, Zarley was often called "the Pro from the Moon" or "Moon Man." It is because comedian Bob Hope once interviewed him on national television and remarked, "Kermit Zarley, with a name like that, he must be the pro from the moon." In a Wayne and Shuster sketch about a golf tournament being held on the streets of Toronto, Johnny Wayne's character is named "Zarley Kermit, Jr."In 1965, Zarley co-founded the PGA Tour Bible Study group with fellow PGA Tour players Jim and Babe Hiskey. It is still active in the world of professional golf. In the period between his careers on the PGA Tour and the Champions Tour, he wrote three books on religion and world affairs. He received an honorary doctorate degree in 2001 from North Park University in Chicago, which has a lecture series named for him. Zarley resides in Scottsdale, Arizona. Hosted on Acast.

IT'S TIME TO WATCH THE MUPPETS! This week with special guest Anne Murray. Distracted rants include but are not limited to Look Who's Talking, Joni Mitchell, a failure to launch, Paul T. Goldman, A.I., and much more!"Scooter bothers everyone, particularly Kermit, with his skateboarding through the theater, whether riding out of control with it or causing damage to sketch sets by leaving it around for others to trip on. However the skateboard does have some advantages: Kermit gets certain guests out of the theater for free (when they want cab fare) and Scooter ultimately convinces the frog to have an all-skateboard finale to impress his uncle."Follow us:Twitter.com/ittwtmInstagram.com/ittwtm

She's thrilled when she realizes that she appears in both of the sketches nominated for Best Sketch -- "Pigs in Space" and "Veterinarian's Hospital" -- but the category ends in a tie, and no "Fred" is awarded. Piggy's only other chance for an award is as Performer of the Year -- and she's competing against Kermit."Follow us:Twitter.com/ittwtmInstagram.com/ittwtm

It may be January but June is busting out all over and we're huckin' the bejeepers with Leslie Uggams and Big Bird (of Sesame Street, maybe you've heard of it). We have our quibbles (here we come again) but what a delight after a couple of episodes we weren't super into to have not one but two guest stars who are charming and charismatic and seem to really want to be here! Does Gonzo try to have sex with Big Bird, who is technically supposed to be a six-year-old child? Sure! Does he do it while on a date with Camilla, who he's also weirdly coercive with? Do we have thoughts about Leslie Uggams' lack of pants? Look, not everything can be perfect, okay? We get a Captain and Tennille number, some Dolly Parton, a dash of Noel Coward, Beaker lighting water on fire, Kermit throwing shade, the premiere of Bear On Patrol, and some real weird digressions into Leonard Nimoy, Bigfoot, Colonel Sanders' herbs and spices, and a whole lot of 1979 TV.

Holiday cheer (and vegan Egg Nog laced with Fireball Whisky) was in the air as Mark and Nicole welcomed Elisa Jordana and Santa Claus to a fast paced and fun holiday party. Elisa was engaging with her fans on Livestream while the show was going on and her fans were typically unpredictable. She cleared up previous claims that she was asexual and detailed how she fell for Gabe Saporta the lead singer of Cobra Starship and ended up as the keytar player so she could be in front. She met Benjy Bronk on jdate and ended up joining him on The Howard Stern Show writing staff. She then was engaged to Andy Dick despite never having slept with him and his being flamboyantly and unapologetically gay. She talks all about these relationships, her beef with Stuttering John Melendez, getting hacked by her IRL fans, making over men and how she deals with friends and lovers talking bad about her on podcasts, her own show Kermit and Friends and much more. Santa had to deal with Elisa's friends calling him a “pedo”, doubting his validity and ethnicity as well as having bible verses thrown at him. He dealt with them with his usual charm and grace, talked about his beef with the Easter Bunny, having magical “keys” to everyone's house, how creepy it is that he knows when you are sleeping and determined whether Elisa and Nicole were naughty or nice.

Do you feel that chill in the air? This holiday season, When We Were Young's listeners will be visited by three all-knowing spirits who serve as guides through the past, present, and future of all things Muppet. Our last episode chronicled the humble beginnings of Kermit and company through their rise to global superstardom with The Muppet Show and The Muppet Movie in the late 70s. In this episode Chris, Becky, and Seth discuss their youthful memories of more recent Muppets exploits like the original MUPPET BABIES cartoon of the 80s, the MUPPETS TONIGHT primetime series that aired on TGIF in the 90s, and a star-studded pop album called KERMIT UNPIGGED that at least one of our hosts cherished. Next we revisit the Muppets' musical retelling of Charles Dickens' classic ghost story in 1992's THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL, which stars a pitch perfect Michael Caine as yuletide-loathing miser Ebenezer Scrooge, and a bunch of puppets as Bob Cratchit, Tiny Tim, the Marleys, and even the author himself. Then we are confronted by the present and future of Jim Henson's beloved creations since the Muppets were officially taken over by Disney in the early 2000s. Does The Muppet Christmas Carol still warm our hearts and send us out into the snowy streets to pass out savvy pop culture critiques to the needy? Or have the years turned us into cold, cruel Scrooges ready to say, “Bah, humbug!” to this Disneyfied departure from the Muppets' scrappy roots?

Today's 80th Golden Globes countdown takes us back to 2005 and a conversation between that year's winner for Best Actor Motion Picture - Drama Jamie Foxx and HFPA journalist Kristien Gjibels, which was recorded back in 2020. They discuss his win for Ray, his work with Michael B. Jordan, his impression of Kermit the Frog, and more.
The stretch between Thanksgiving and Christmas is a special one in our house, as we make it a priority to slow things down and focus on time with our family. Aside from all the gifts to be bought, the stockings to be hung, and the lights to be wrestled with, we make it a point to sit and enjoy our favorite holiday films. This list has been truncated over the years as not everything made for the holidays requires a yearly re-visit (see the Hallmark Channel), but the ones that have stuck around deserve their place. Is our list for everyone? Probably not. Do we care? Definitely not. We just figured everyone else has words on the matter, so why not us? If it helps, we're consistently on the big man's nice list, so our choices are not to be taken lightly. Either way, time to light that fireplace, spike the eggnog, and embrace our own holiday classics. Shop Around the Corner (1940) RJ: Looking back, I cannot believe the amount of convincing my wife needed to do before I would watch this film. My hesitancy was based in the fact the film was in black and white, and also a romantic comedy. Thankfully, I found my spot on the couch and enjoyed the undeniable likeability of Jimmy Stewart, and his chemistry with co-star Margaret Sullivan. Even the story was deeper than two people looking for love, but rather a complex look at the interpersonal relationships of co-workers. This is a great film to watch with the fireplace on, a bottle of wine, and the person you love next to you. Ashley: I find something so comforting about Jimmy Stewart's voice, so it's no wonder this is the first of two Jimmy entries on this list. Listen in to find out why I think you'll love this one as much as I do. Arthur Christmas (2011) RJ: This film was a wonderful surprise, as the first time we watched it was simply because we had watched everything else in our holiday rotation. I was absolutely floored by the animation style and the stellar voice-cast. The story is absolutely charming as well, plenty to keep parents and children alike entertained. The ending alone is enough bring out the kid in all of us. Ashley: I love Arthur Christmas. From the voice cast to the heartwarming script, this holiday film about Santa's second son is a must-watch every Christmas. The Holiday (2006) RJ: My mother and I went to see this in late December 2006. I was home from college and she was my usual movie date as my dad typically picked films as the ideal place for a nap. Now, neither of us are fans of Cameron Diaz, nothing personal, perhaps it's genetic, but it didn't change are outlook on how much we enjoyed this film. Years later, and it's now one I can share with my wife. My love for it really lies with the pairing of Kate Winslet and Jack Black, but I think Jude Law does a promising job of balancing out my outlook on Diaz. Another one to sit down, laugh, and split a bottle a wine with the one you love. Ashley: This film was a grower for me. I don't remember loving it in 2006 or feeling compelled to watch it yearly in the early 2010's. Now, this film occupies a nostalgic piece of my heart. Either that, or I'm vicariously living through Cameron Diaz as she spends her winter holiday snowed in at a cozy English cottage. There's so much to love about this low-stakes Christmas romantic comedy, earning it a coveted spot on my yearly re-watch list. Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) RJ: There are so many reasons I love this film, and I will overlook the biggest one, as it was the one playing the same day our son was born, but let me give you the other two. First, Michael Caine is a phenomenal scrooge, who plays the whole thing as a serious actor, even when he's speaking to someone who can only say “Meep Meep Meep.” That is the true tale of talent. Secondly, Steve Whitmere is my Kermit and his role of Rizzo the rat is irreplaceable. I accept no substitute. This is the definitive version of The Christmas Carol. Ashley: I'll echo RJ's earlier statements; this is the best version of The Christmas Carol. From the music to the casting of Sir Michael Caine, everything about this movie makes it feel like Christmas to me. Also, this has one of the few cinematic outings of my favorite Muppet, Bean Bunny. It's A Wonderful Life (1946) RJ: Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed. I am lucky to have a wife like Mary Bailey because everyone needs someone who is there to love and support you through everything life has to throw at you. George should have realized from the beginning, that the best thing to ever happen to him was finding her, but then that would be a much shorter film. Either way, this is the definitive film to watch to get into the holiday spirit. Ashley: It's a Wonderful Life is not just my favorite Christmas movie, it's one of my favorite films ever made. I've watched this Frank Capra classic every year for as long as I can remember. It just feels entwined with the holidays for me and with the person I've become.

The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog playing Bob Cratchit, the put-upon clerk of stingy Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppets -- Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle -- weave in and out of the story, while Scrooge receives visits from spirits of three Christmases -- past, present and future. They show him the error of his self-serving ways, but the miserable old man seems to be past any hope of redemption and happiness. Can we ask for a more perfect match for our #Puppetry genre AND to have this episode debut in December? I think not! Nathan brings all of us a fan favorite and a holiday staple for everyone with The Muppet Christmas Carol! We laugh at the quotable lines, Michael Caines stellar performance and of course the timeless songs. So join us wont you?

It's When We Were Young's most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational episode yet! Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and friends may be best known for kid-focused fare these days, but Jim Henson's world-famous puppets originally had roots in more grownup entertainment, including The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, the first season of Saturday Night Live, and a “Sex & Violence” TV special that provided a test run for puppets on primetime. In this episode of the podcast, we look back at the very beginning of Henson's puppeteering career on public access television more than two decades before the gang got their very own variety program in THE MUPPET SHOW, which became a worldwide phenomenon starting in 1976. Chris, Becky, and Seth rewatch some of the series' most notable episodes with guest stars Rita Moreno, Steve Martin, Harry Belafonte, and Elton John, and discover that their mileage for puppets delivering dad jokes may vary. Then we revisit Kermit and company's big screen debut in 1979's THE MUPPET MOVIE, which awed fans by taking the Muppets out of the studio and having them ride bikes, drive cars, and show off their felt feet for the very first time, all in pursuit of Hollywood stardom. Do we still feel a rainbow connection to these early Muppets outings? Or have the lovers and dreamers aged into old fogeys sitting up in the balcony, heckling the lovable puppet performers down below? Play the music, light the lights, raise the curtains, and prepare for some controversial opinions on the When We Were Young podcast's Muppets episode tonight!

To kick off the Winter Bizarre, Danielle brings the 2002 movie It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie. Despite the absolute clunker of a title, this Muppet Christmas Movie does, indeed, contain many Muppets and their delightful antics. We open on a distraught Kermit killing the vibe at the Muppet Christmas party by lamenting that he's lost the theater; it's been repossessed by the bank. A celestial being of some kind named Daniel, or Danny El, (David Arquette) is watching Kermit's misery from heaven (or something) and at first tries to convince his coworker (William H. Macy) that they need to intervene with a miracle. Ol' Willy H. disagrees, and so Daniel goes straight to the person in charge: Whoopie Goldberg. Daniel explains what happened to Kermit in a flashback. Apparently, the previous owner of the bank died, leaving the evil Rachel (Joan Cusack) in charge. Rachel has decided to renege on the handshake agreement Kermit had with the previous bank owner to wait to collect on Kermit's bank loan for the Muppet Theater until after their first week of performances. Rachel is deciding to stick to the letter of the contract which requires payment by midnight Christmas Eve. At this point, Sam thinks he's identified the actual villain of the film: Kermit. The irresponsible frog somehow signed a contract on a bank loan with a term due before they could stage any shows at the theater, and which comes due at midnight (what?) on Christmas Eve (WHAT?!), and Sam cannot believe he then asks all his employees to forgo their salaries for a whole freaking year to cover his irresponsibility. Anyway, what follows is a smörgåsbord of guest stars and parodies of other Christmas movies and, for some reason, The Crocodile Hunter. So join us for this hilarious Muppet adventure that is most definitely bizarre and has Sam mumbling "Humbug" at Kermit.

Do you remember that famous Apple computer advertising campaign, the one that urged us all to “think different?” That ad campaign was created just after Steve Jobs had returned to the Apple company and Apple needed a new start. The year was 1997 and Apple was on the rocks. Their stock was trading at a 12-year low, and the company that had been known for its creativity and innovation was stagnant and dying. So when Steve Jobs returned to Apple after having left in the mid-1980s, customers, if not Apple's board of directors, were expecting something new and exciting. And they got it, with interest. During Jobs' tenure after his return, Apple launched the iMac, iBook, iPod, Mac OS X, iPhone, iPad, and more. You may have forgotten that shaky period in Apple's history, but I bet the ad campaign is still fresh in your mind. There were two television advertisements that were shown most often. There was a one-minute version that featured black-and-white images of 17 iconic 20th-century difference-makers, including Albert Einstein, Bob Dylan, Martin Luther King Jr., Richard Branson, John Lennon (with Yoko Ono), Buckminster Fuller, Thomas Edison, Muhammad Ali, Ted Turner, Maria Callas, Mahatma Gandhi, Amelia Earhart, Alfred Hitchcock, Martha Graham, Jim Henson (with Kermit the Frog), Frank Lloyd Wright, and Pablo Picasso. There was also a 30-second version of the ad which showed only 11 of the 17 innovators. For Apple, the ads proved to be more than a montage of people who influenced the future of humanity. These ads also ignited the spark of change within Apple itself, leading to its recovery and resurgence as the tech giant it has become and also to the company's emergence as a leader in marketing and promotions. Apple became different. What does this have to do with your harp playing? On today's show we are going to talk about how you can harness the power of thinking differently to transform your harp playing, maybe in a huge, game-changing way, or maybe in small but significant ways. As we come to the end of the year, we can consider closing the door on what is feeling stale or unrewarding and opening the window to let in some fresh air. We can recharge, reinvigorate and redirect our musical energies to enable us to go where our harps may lead us. I have some very specific action steps to share with you too, ones that you're going to enjoy doing, I promise.

Tonight's special guest is Kermit McCown from Butte, Montana, a returning NAASCA family member, who has not been with us in years. Kermit notes that it takes enormous courage on the part of a victim to just comes through one door and ask for help let alone navigate myriad of services scattered through the community, services such as police trained to deal with family violence, counselling for adults and children. Kermit says that counties need to develop "safety plans, shelters, crisis / medical support for sexual assault, financial counselling, children's services, support groups, outreach services to the community, legal services and sibling abuse specialized programs." He explains "I was around at the age of seven, and I've had to live with this whole event. My entire life was changed when I was drowned. by my mother. She lined all my brothers and sisters up along the bank of the creek and swing me upside down, drowning me with my hands tied, legs tied and screaming for somebody to help nobody would help. All I could do was just live within the moment." He says, "It took a lot of courage to face all the things that came out in the next 16 years of torture. I'm a survivor of child abuse and I believe nobody should have to live with this type of injury." In the end his mom drove him 1000 miles and dropped him off in the desert. "Ever since then I've been fighting over the feelings inside." Kevin says, "I have a counselor that I've been seeing for 20 years and I've had a lot of healing with him." He concludes, "It's so hard to understand everything that we've been through and then to live your life and try to be productive while dealing with quantum PTSD."

Is this the “locker room talk” we hear so much about? What Urkel variant is being birthed right before our very eyes? And who's the only one qualified to give sex advice on this show? We fool around with these questions and more as we watch Season 5, Episode 14 of Family Matters.Alex Diamond, David Kenny, and John McDaniel heard that the long-running network sitcom Family Matters ends with side character Steve Urkel going to space. And the best way to figure out how that happened - obviously - is to watch the last episode first and make our way backwards through nearly ten years of television.Join our countdown to number one (and our slow descent into madness) in all the places you expect internet people to be:Website: jumpingtheshuttle.spaceEmail: email@example.comInstagram: @JumpingTheShuttle / @ThatAlexD / @dak577Twitter: @JumpingShuttle / @ThatAlexD / @dak577TikTok: @JumpingTheShuttle / @dak577Brought to you by Smooth My Balls

It might hard to accept but the cost of medical supplies and devices can be extremely expensive. Hospitals need them on a daily basis, which means they have to shell out thousands and sometimes millions of dollars every month. And that's just for keeping the lights on.

Today on a horrifying episode of real ghost stories online that some claim was the inspiration for the hit cartoon, Muppet Babies, and the unreleased episode where Kermit and Fozzy play with a wee-gee board, summon a demon, gonzo becomes possessed and carries out a mass murder of nanny, ralph, scooter and miss piggy. For some reason that episode never aired, despite the desperate cries of children to see the truth, behind the Muppet babies. What happens late at night inside the bathroom of an old soup kitchen? Something that doesn't involve the living, but rather, the dead. Waiting for their next time to strike and unsuspecting soul. That story, and much more, today, on Real Ghost Stories Online.
