“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Stepping Out Solo Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

Love it or loathe it, we’re heading toward Valentine’s Day. Around this time of year, there’s a huge focus on finding someone to share your life with. Most of the focus is on finding a significant other, though there’s a growing movement showing that friendships are just as important.

But we all know what it’s like when you just have to go solo. Rather than stay at home and mope about it, take advantage of it! Do something you’ve always wanted to do, go somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, try something new, meet new people, and enjoy it!

The spotlight’s ready, it’s your time, so come on out and seize your moment with a set of…

Get ready for your big solo!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Reflective Wrap-Up Refrains”!

Hi, everyone!

Now that the New Year has arrived, holiday season is officially over. The next major holiday isn’t for another month, and it’s a divisive one, to say the least!

Until then, we’re in this odd “in-between” time: fresh off a series of tightly-packed holidays, still in the midst of winter, and searching for something to look forward to.

But, we can still enjoy this time! If you watched any version of A Christmas Carol during holiday season, you probably heard the line about living “in the past, the present, and the future.”

So, we’re going to take this time to do just that, and jam to a round of…

“Magic mirror on the wall…”

Christmas/Holiday Movies: “It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie”

Hi, everyone!

I had a pretty hectic Halloween season this year, so I wasn’t able to continue my series about Halloween movies. However, I know that my subsequent series on holiday/Christmas/winter movies (and specials) only had half the amount of entries… that is, only two. Yikes.

So, I’m going to rectify that this year, starting…


For those of you who are new (or just don’t remember), this is how this series works…

This month, I’m going to watch (and, in some cases, re-watch) some movies that are perfect for the holiday/Christmas/winter season. These are not reviews, because I’ll only be writing about films I love and recommend. There’s no plan, method, or scientific algorithm to what movies I’m going to watch or how I’m going to structure these entries. I’m just going to have fun with it, and I hope you will, too!

First up, a TV movie that I believe is ridiculously underrated…

It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (2002)!

I do not own any of the following images or videos!

Here’s the trailer:

It’s ALWAYS a merry Christmas with The Muppets!

It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (2002)
Plot: The Muppets are putting on a big Christmas show to save their theater, but when everything goes wrong and Kermit the Frog’s spirit seems broken, an angel comes to show him what the world––– and his friends––– would be like if he’d never been born.

I also have a very personal connection to this movie, which you’ll have to read on to find out about!

Spoilers lurk beyond this point!

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Seasonal Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

Two weeks ago, we jammed to a slew of sunny summer songs to ring in the season!

But with the heat of summer on full blast, it can be easy to just start complaining about the sun and humidity and forget that the warmth is only temporary. In just a couple of months, we’ll all be digging our heavy coats out of the back of the closet!

Although many people have a favorite season, each season has its perks and its drawbacks. So this week, we’re going to celebrate every season with a super set of…
