Thoughts on ‘boombastic’ Thunder trades

A step or two in the right direction.


Well, the NBA trade deadline has come and gone. And in case you were unaware, it was as crazy and unpredictable as a Sally Kern manifesto on homosexuals and terrorism.

VOTD: It ain’t easy being ... from New Zealand

Bret McKenzie and Kermit the Frog sing an original song from ‘The Muppets.’

There is a poster promoting “Flight of the Conchords”’ second season on HBO in my office. Thus, any video of Bret McKenzie playing or writing songs on the fly are an automatic VOTD, doubly so when accompanied by any Muppet.

That’s the case here, thanks to The New York Times magazine, which corralled the New Zealand comedian into a studio to talk about his work composing original songs for the new “Muppets” movie and even perform one with the little green guy. It’s a fun little feature, and most definitely worth your time (click through to watch). Turns out writing songs for Muppets is extra-tricky, as McKenzie learned.

Also be sure to read Rod Lott’s super-exclusive interview with Jason Segel. And pick up a copy of tomorrow’s Gazette for a review of the film, which also opens tomorrow.
