It’s Really REALLY Not Easy…

Best Week Ever Blog has the heads up on Sad Kermit, in which our favorite frog shows us that his emo song-stylings were actually a cry for help.

There is much to marvel at in this video including realistic muppet guitar playing and shaving. But what I really want to know is, how in the hell do you make a muppet smoke? Magical. And, of course, kudos to its Royal Tenenbaums tribute.

Be sure and check out the website which has one more video (For Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt” and several MP3s available for download.


NFT Radar: Murphy’s Pub

In terms of being a bar with a moderately European beer selection as well as convenient locale for a drink pre or post movie at the Guild, Murphy’s succeeds. In fact, that’s the only time you’ll really want to go to Murphy’s–when it’s convenient. Otherwise, it’s an unremarkable destination. It’s a cookie cutter Irish-themed bar with large TVs broadcasting “the game” and cozy looking couches in front of a stately fireplace. There are usually plenty of quaint “pub-like” seats available for spur-of-the-moment visits. They serve their beers in a “proper pint glass” and they have prerequisite signs for Guinness and Jameson. But there is nothing REALLY Irish about Murphy’s at all and it makes the place feel dead inside. On top of that the service is PAINFULLY slow. You would do well to order two drinks at a time, especially if you have somewhere to be. This is not an exaggeration and is universally agreed upon by every Murphy’s patron I have ever met. Also, don’t be fooled by their full menu of allegedly spot-hitting food like grilled cheese and burgers. You’d think it would be impossible to screw up melting cheese onto toasted bread. You’d be wrong.
