K Tempest Tumbles

I'm K. Tempest Bradford, a writer, blogger, tech geek, and all around nerd. I'm such a big science fiction/fantasy/speculative fiction fan that I even write it (I know, pretty hard core!).

I have a non-Tumblr blog and that's where the majority of my long-form posts go. This blog is for my more fannish activities, link sharing, and squeeness.

Muppet Fairy Tales by David Petersen

The mind and pen behind Mouse Guard, David also dabbles in occasional Muppet re-imaginings of classic fairy tales and Arthurian legends. Muppets lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government.

Pepperdelica by Louise Evans/Felt Mistress

For the “Lovers, Dreamers, and Me” Jim Henson Tribute Show at Gallery Nucleus, Felt Mistresses’ Floyd Pepper plays up the Beatles homage to Yellow Submarine animator Heinz Edelmann. Made from felt as a sculptural piece, but it’s also a working puppet!

The Muppets vs. the Lord of the Rings

A selection of images from the “Muppets/Tolkien” mashup taking place this week by the chaps over at draw2d2. I may not be able to carry the ring for you, Mr. Kermit. BUT I CAN CARRY YOU! Click on the pictures for the artist credit.

Happy Birthday, Jim Henson.  We still miss you.

*plays it’s Not Easy Being Green* I’ll be in my corner, sobbing. Dammit…

A friend of mine is a friend of the Henson family and was at the funeral. He cannot listen to The Rainbow Connection without crying because that’s what Kermit and the Muppets sang at the funeral. Now every time I hear the song I think about it, too. … and cry. :(
