It’s currently slated to be 27 degrees the 13th of January. Yet Huntington Bank is throwing a cancer patient into the streets. And it will be below freezing. Is this economic justice? Let alone moral? http://www.realtytrac.com/trendcenter/uiservices/heatmap.aspx?width=480&a=VUCIKfNUwXqewxd82wlAnaf9hRdH%2foADd3CnuasYMdI%3d
Yes! YES! A thousand times YES!

Occupy Cleveland is brainstorming ideas for television ads. This is the first video I have seen from the group in the “info-based” category.
I think they are looking for volunteers with a background in advertising, web design, tv or radio, video editors etc. who can volunteer their time and skillset moving this project forward.
I’ll stop babbling now, and let the video speak for itself.

Brian Henson directs his late father’s creations in the Charles Dickens classic, the best known (and most oft-filmed) Christmas story of all time. Michael Caine plays the old miser Scrooge with Kermit as his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit’s wife, and a host of Muppets (including the Great Gonzo as an unlikely Charles Dickens) taking other primary roles in this bright, playful adaptation of the somber tale. Or at least it starts brightly enough–the anarchic humor soon settles into mirthful memories and a sense of melancholy as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey of his lonely, wasted life. Michael Caine makes a wonderful Scrooge, delightfully rediscovering the meaning of life as fantastic creations from Henson’s Creature Shop (developed specially for this film) take the reins as the three ghosts. While the odd mix of offbeat humor and somber drama undercuts the power of Dickens’s drama, this kid-friendly retelling makes an excellent family drama that adults and children alike can enjoy. –Sean Axmaker
