I've always wanted to go to SESAME PLACE, a quest that likely began in the early 1980's when the OAK RIDGE BOYS released a music video that was filmed in the now-defunct location in Irving, Texas. On June 2-3, 2012 - The SESAME PLACE in Langhorne, PA will be hosting a ''Sprout Weekend with Chica and Super Why,'' and if my second daughter wasn't due less than two weeks from those dates, we might've seriously considered the trek. My daughter absolutley loves Chica from Sprout's SUNNY SIDE UP SHOW, and SESAME STREET and SUPER WHY are both on the daily viewing schedule here at Rock Father HQ.

When I first heard about BEING ELMO: A PUPPETEER'S JOURNEY, it was after it wowed audiences and took home a Special Jury Prize at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. This exceptionally moving documentary by Constance Marks tells the story of Kevin Clash, the man behind Elmo, SESAME STREET's most recognizable little red monster. Much to my surprise, the film popped up on Netflix Instant this week, so the little one and I sat down to watch it yesterday.
