Ok Go cover The Muppet Theme

So have you heard about Muppets: The Green Album? If you click that link you can go listen to the album on NPR. Anyway, it’s the new record out today with the likes of My Morning Jacket, Ok Go, and Andrew Bird covering the Muppets’ songs.

Here’s a video of OK Go covering The Muppet Show Theme. It includes all the best Muppets (including Jess’ favorite fictional nerds), and if it doesn’t make you smile at least a little bit, you probably have a shrivelled chicken McNugget where your heart ought to be.

In search of mindless entertainment you turn to The Muppets (or Lady Gaga)

When you couple the devastating tornadoes in North Minneapolis and Joplin, Missouri with OMG Oprah’s show is about to end, the internet is either downright depressing or inane today (though I did get a hearty chuckle out of Periodic Table of Storytelling).

So where does that leave us? The nerdy yearning for a little mindless entertainment? Why it leaves us with the trailer for the new Muppet Movie, of course. Or you can read about how Lady Gaga’s 99-cent album made Amazon’s severs go kablooie.
