Janice, the grooviest Muppet

Janice is a groovy chick and that's fer sure! When compared to say, I don't know, Jessie from Toy Story, I know who I'd ask out on a date (if I wasn't married to bobobex).

I find Janice to be an interesting character. For starters, not only does she play in a band, but she seems to have had more men inside her than woman. A fact that I find very puzzling, as I doubt I would have realised without watching this video. Also, on a personal note, our daughter's (Emma's) first Linux machine had the hostname of 'janice', mainly because of Emma's striking resemblance to said Muppet (not that I would ever call our daughter a Muppet!)

Anyhow, if you are new to CrunchBang, and/or you are wondering what all this has to do with anything, please read this annoucement from the Debian Release Team: https://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-a … 00004.html

Re: Janice, the grooviest Muppet

So...did you know that Debian 7 would be Wheezy before you named #! 10 "Statler", or was the Squeeze/Statler and Wheezy/Waldorf congruence just a happy coincidence?  I had a feeling that, regardless of the official name for Debian 7, the #! release based on it would have been named Waldorf.

Janice really is groovy - and she plays a lefty Lester!  (I understand Gibson stopped making left-handed guitars a few years ago...but that has nothing to do with this thread.)  The "fer sure" bit was more Valley than hippie though, very Moon Unit.  To me, Richard Hunt's Janice sounded a lot like Kermit...something in the inflections.

she seems to have had more men inside her than woman

So not touching that. yikes

Sidebar:  What would possess parents to name their child "Dick Hunt"?  They had to realize what that would sound like. lol

Sidebar2:  Is Emma a member of the forums?


Yes; as a matter of fact, I am a cop.  Why do you ask? cool

Answer to question 1: no, it was a happy accident. That said, I am not sure I would have chosen Waldorf if it had not of fallen than way.

My bad, sorry. I did think it might be a little risqué. No offence meant big_smile

No, and for the record, she does not use Linux any more either, much to my disappointment. We got away with it when she was younger, but when she started attending secondary school, she wanted to use what all the "cool" kids were using. I tried to point out how wrong she was in her thinking, but I failed. Maybe one day, she will see the light. I live in hope smile

Re: Janice, the grooviest Muppet

So . . . um . . . I'm wrong about the intentional parallels between the Debian and CrunchBang naming conventions then? I'll have to fix that slide on the stock #! presentation (you have a copy, corenominal), though the coincidence, to be honest, is a little too good to be true. In addition, I think the Muppet-with-the-same-letter naming convention would complement the Debian naming convention (not to mention being a high compliment to Debian in the process).

Jessie is in Toy Story 2, seemingly a female counterpart to Woody (and, if memory serves, Woody, Jessie and Jessie's horse make up a toy set).

No, not wrong at all. It has always been intentional to pick a Muppet character that starts with the same letter as the Toy Story character used by Debian. However, at the time of picking Statler, I had no idea that Wheezy would follow Squeeze as it had not been announced. Hence Waldorf being a happy accident. Hope that makes sense. smile

Re: Janice, the grooviest Muppet

Are there no Toy Story toys that start with the letter "A" (the Aliens are actually called Little Green Men)? We will never see a #! "Animal"?

Truly tragic. sad

^ a shame indeed.  I have an "Animal" t-shirt. He's my favourite Muppet.

Seriously? You're distinguishing between Sesame Street Muppets and Muppet Show Muppets? Anyway, it was more of a reference to the Introductions thread than to Cookie Monster.

Re: Janice, the grooviest Muppet

...This topic has me so confused.  lol

...I find it a little disturbing that Janice has a man voice...

One time at work,  things were going really bad,  and some one told me that I reminded them of Beaker...sigh.

hmm

I actually found it a bit more disturbing to read Corenominal "working blue" about Janice, then in the next breath type about a similarity between Janice and his daughter. neutral  Though, given her current age (secondary school), that thought's probably foremost in Papanominal's mind...even more so than anything CrunchBang.

I just wonder what "Ray Davies and The Boys" think about Janice.  "Lola,  L-o-l-a,  Lola"  smile

Re: Janice, the grooviest Muppet

@corenominal

This explains so much.  It always eluded me why the cb 9.04 lsb release profile was "Janice".  Smooth man.  We should have seen the muppet army coming !!
