Two very important events recently occurred in CMEpaloozaland. The first is that the Session Archive was updated to include all of the sessions from CMEpalooza Fall 2021. Be sure to check out the archive for all your professional development needs. OK, maybe not all your needs, but it covers a lot of ground. There are a bunch of sessions in there now. We need to bring back the CMEpalooza Intern just to go in and count them all.
The second event is the announcement that ‘80s sitcom ALF is back! Our own Scott Kober is giddy with excitement about the return of the cat-eating alien puppet to the airwaves, which apparently includes both a re-airing of the original TV series and an animated spinoff on something called Shout! Factory TV. (Note from Scott: OK, hold on a second. It’s true that I was a huge ALF fan back in the day, and yet I totally missed this announcement. Looks like it’s time to turn on the old “Out of Office” message — I’ll see everyone again in May).
A few comments, if I may:
- Other than Scott, who exactly has been clambering for more ALF in their life?
- Shout! Factory TV? Great, another streaming service to buy and then immediately forget my login and password.
- The article in Vulture that I linked to is indexed under the category EVERYBODY LOVES PUPPETS! This is, of course, ridiculous. Everybody does not love puppets. I still have nightmares about creepy Lady Elaine Fairchilde from Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. No, I don’t want to talk about it. (Note from Scott: Now that we all know this little tidbit, what are the odds I’ll be wearing this t-shirt the next time I see Derek? Let’s just say they are better than the odds that the ALF reboot will win an Emmy next year)
