Trying for a cheering up

Not to lay my problems on you people, but my grandmother’s in the hospital for the third time in about a year, and this go ’round, it’s the intensive care unit. I had this really great post about meating people based on band merch, and it was all tied into High Fidelity and shit like that, but I haven’t really had the energy or will to do much of anything other than sit around and worry all day.

Soundtracks to damn near every show and movie Jim Henson’s little creations have ever done.

Albums upon albums of Muppety goodness here. Thanks to Copy, Right? for the link.
