A couple of my TV news peeps posted this awesome music video of the Muppet Show theme song by OK Go. It’s from the new album, “Muppets: The Green Album.” It features classic Muppet tunes covered by fantastic musicians.
What are your favorite Muppet Show memories?

All Songs Considered introduced me to this adorable cover of Kermit’s “It’s Not Easy Being Green.” I fell in love with Kermit’s ballad when I used to be a college radio DJ. It’s a sweet song with a lot of heart.
Andrew Bird is also an incredibly talented whistler.
I saw Andrew Bird opening for Death Cab for Cutie at the Greek Theater. It was a great night for live music in Berkeley!

I had this song playing over and over in my head as I wandered around St. Petersburg last year.
I watched a trailer for “Eat Pray Love.” It had this song in the background. Then I read the book in my hotel room, after my classes in Russia. Something about the beat and the simple lyrics worked with walking over the Neva River.
Now, it’s my favorite tune to listen to as I drive over the Bay Bridge.
My alma mater had one of the coolest commencement speakers. Ever.
I stumbled on last weekend’s event from Colin Hanks’ blog. I suspect everyone stayed awake for Stephen Colbert’s speech.
Colbert also calls out our alma mater for a “Snow Day.” Sure, he may have survived the coldest day in Chicago’s history. However, he didn’t have to do a public records scavenger hunt on the coldest day of the year. That was brutal!
The bar inside Nijo Castle in Newark serves up tasty sushi and cocktails. On the weekends, crooners show off their ballad skills for Karaoke night.
On some nights, you can catch a bartender showing off his flare.
