Google Pays Tribute to Master Puppeteer Jim Henson

Jim Henson Google Doodle

Today, September 24, 2011, Google‘s puppet doodle is featured to pay tribute to Jim Henson in his would-have-been 75th birthday.

Born on 1936, Henson introduced us to the wonderful world of puppetry. He created The Muppets and made Sesame Street possible. Big Bird, Elmo, Miss Piggy, and the rest of the colorful, fluffy gang have become a significant part of many children’s lives for generations. And of course, who would ever forget Kermit the Frog voiced by Henson himself. Continue reading

Self-titled

It was in 1998 when I first bought that cassette tape. It’s about buy-one-take-two shampoos, a two-timing girlfriend, and other adult-related puns. The parents find it odd and disturbing for their grade 3 daughter to listen such explicit content.

It was in 2003 when I found friends with the same interests. Armed with mediocre guitar skills and guts more than Pacquiao has, I led the afternoon tambay sessions. Yes, I was that weird girl in a bunch of guys in the school amphitheater.

It was in 2009 when I saw you at a gig for the first time. You liked the AC/DC shirt I was wearing. You sang that track from Mr. Big over the phone at 4 in the morning. And talked about tattoos and crazy fans during that friendly date in Cubao.

Earlier I heard a song played over the radio. It was from the first album. Then I thought,

How old are you then when I bought that cassette tape?

Black Balloon

You’ll always think of me as the one who played with your feelings

Who never take things seriously

Who basks in superficial romances

I may have never said I love you

But to tell you the truth, I DID love you

And unfortunately, you’ll never know it

But just so you know

I love Goo Goo Dolls because of you
