"We live in a patriarchal imaginary where men cannot conceptualise women as fully human … What’s really important is how this shit resides in us, how this just lives in us, man, even if we’re the good guy – it should give a motherfucker pause."

Details:Sesame Street & Pop Culture: 45 Years of Spoofs on the ‘Street,’ Sunday, 7/27/14, 10:15a.m. - 11:15a.m., Room: 6A

Sesame Street has continuously turned the sensations of the entertainment world into lighthearted attractions that make children and their parents laugh, sing and learn. Join us for a special  screening of the new Sesame Street spoofs “Numeric Con” and “Star S’mores” (hilarious parodies of Comic-Con and Star Wars) debuting in the show’s upcoming 45th season. Then explore the ways pop culture has played a vital role throughout the show’s history during a panel discussion with the Sesame Street Muppets™ and Eric Jacobson (Grover and Bert), Joey Mazzarino (Murray Monster, Sesame Street Head Writer and Director), David Rudman (Cookie Monster and Baby Bear), and Carol-Lynn Parente (Executive Producer).  The discussion will be moderated by Chris Hardwick (Host of @midnight and Talking Dead, Nerdist).


Seriously? Sesame Street knows what’s up.

Matthew Bogart tells subtle, honest stories set in universes out of his characters’ control, and he tells them with unexpected simplicity and prettiness. Mentions of Florida, Malabar and Satellite Beach, the suggestion of Portland, sprinkled throughout his work suggest that we may have a little history in common as well.

He’s just started a Kickstarter (nudge), and he’s been operating over at Patreon (nudge, nudge) for a little while.

W:Are you kidding, they taste like rainbows.
S:No, that's Skittles.
