Puppet Kaos - where Kelvin Kao plays with puppets and tell random stories

First Lines from 2011

Inspired by this post, here is a list of the first sentence from the first blog post of each month. Interesting way to look back at last year. I also did this in 2008.

January: It is a little late for Christmas specials now, but recently I came across this video of bloopers from Jim Henson’s 1977 special Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas.

In my true procrastinator fashion, I was still talking about Christmas when it was already the new year. Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas was one of the best Christmas specials of all time though!

February: (none)

Hm, an entire month without any blog post. I guess I have been very busy working on something…

March: So, I have been very busy working on an iPhone project for a client which should be submitted in the near future.

Ah, that explained it. I went on to talk about hilarious dreams that made me laugh myself awake though. That was fun.

April: So the other day I was thinking about my professional life.

This was sort of a lame attempt at an April Fools prank. The one from 2009 was sooooo much better.

May: And it’s time for our graduation show!

And it was fun!

June: This video is made by fellow cast member Herman Gonzales.

And it was fun!

July: (none)

Hm, not a post for the entire month. Wow, I certainly neglected this blog for quite a while.

August: Wow, I certainly neglected this blog for quite a while.

Yes indeed.

September: Over the weekend, I played once again the first computer game I played as a kid.

And it was fun!

October: I recently read this article called “Eight Ironic Effects of Thought Suppression”.

Hm, talking about dreams again. I sure love dreaming, don’t I?

November: Once upon a time, a Pilgrim and an Indian were discussing the upcoming Thanksgiving party.

Ah, another one of my dumb stories. Unfortunately, no happy ending (for the turkeys anyway).

December: Isn’t that a cool picture?

We did the Puppet Jukebox sequel and it was fun!

Quite a busy year with plenty of work, and lots of weeks spent rehearsing and performing.

    What a great idea! Your blog is upbeat in an authentic way, which is one of the reasons I enjoy reading it. Your enthusiasm is catching.

    You had a busy year in 2011. While I missed the months you didn’t write, I always enjoy my visits here. You have a unique approach to life and writing, which I enjoy greatly. Write when you can and keep posting about puppetry and the other odd, oops, I meant “interesting” subjects you find on the Internet to teach me about….like the one of Suppression or the dreams….:~)

    What I would love is sometime in 2012 you do another of your own puppet videos. I still love the one about unwrapping the iPad:~) It makes me laugh to think about it.

    @Michelle: Always good to feel upbeat instead of beat up! 😉

    @Sara: No, “odd” is totally the right word. Perhaps an understatement but right nevertheless. 😀
