Why hasn't there been a good Jim Henson documentary? [R]

I was watching the I am Big Bird documentary, which I absolutely loved, and his segments interested me so much. His life was so interesting I think one would be good.

Jim Henson: The Biography. It was done with aid from the Henson family and a lot of his friends, students and puppeteers, but it isn't a puff piece and makes it clear he had plenty of faults.

In fact, you could pretty much say the Muppets started out on commercials. Before Sesame Street, the Jim Henson either had his Muppets on variety shows like the Tonight Show or created one-off Muppets for specific commercials. Some of these commercial Muppets gained prominence later, such as one Muppet who really liked potato chips on Sesame Street changed to an obsession for cookies, thus Cookie Monster was born.

So, in reality, the Muppets now appearing on commercials could be seen as returning to their roots.

From a quick search I would assume it's Jim Henson: The Biography. Most recent, seemingly well acclaimed, and not as childish looking as the rest.

A little giveaway to brighten someone's day! [R]

Hi friends! I feel like I've been around long enough now to host a giveaway, hopefully someone will enjoy these little treats. :) Here is a pic of the goods. http://imgur.com/iDMlLYg A flowery Clinique bag, Betsey Johnson Too Too lotion and shower gel, L'Oreal Infallible eyeshadow in Perpetual Purple and Iced Latte, and Ulta eyeshadow quads in Chic and Dramatic. None of this has ever been used or even swatched. I got most of it as gifts and would like to cheer someone else up!

This giveaway is only open to US (sorry international folks, I'm broke) and you must be willing to give me your address. The giveaway closes on Mayday (May 1).

The raffle word is VIOLET! (Violets are my favorite flower)
