High-res sdzoo:

Scientists explain the orangutan’s unique approach to problem solving with this example: If a chimpanzee is given an oddly shaped peg and several different holes to try to put it in, the chimp immediately tries shoving the peg in various holes until it finds the correct hole. But an orangutan may stare off into space or even scratch itself with the peg. Then, after a while, it offhandedly sticks the peg into the correct hole while looking at something else that has caught its interest.

SUPEREGO IS BACK! AND PACKED WITH ACTION-SATISFACTION!

And what’s more, we’re bringing Paul F. Tompkins with us. That’s right, he’s joining the Superego Clinic For Analytical Pscience™ as a regular member. It’s time you got ready to get ready.

But that’s only the half of it. On September 1, 2014, Superego will return for a fourth spectacular season. While past seasons have seen episodes arrive on a monthly basis, Season Four will dole out these ear-candies more slowly, prolonging the utter majesty.

But wait, there’s another half of it. Beginning August 1st, we’re also dropping lap-loads of bonus content your way.

You’ll see the release of two new Behind The Bonus episodes, showcasing several sketches that until now, have been locked deep in the Superego vault. Case studies featuring Erinn HayesJames UrbaniakJohn Hodgman, and more. And in the coming weeks, point your eyeballs toward our YouTube page for a series of never-before-released Superego Supershorts.

But really, here’s the whole of it. When September rolls around, get ready for a bevy of brand new guests as well as the return of some your favorites: Andy DalyColin HanksThomas Lennon, and none other than Neko Case.

That’s it, you Bunch-Ofs. Stay subscribed on iTunes, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, and love us in real life.

It’s that willingness to just speak from their soul, as opposed to following in the footsteps of others, that has made [Pixar] so successful.

The various things that Jareth does with the crystal balls (rolling them around his arms and in his hands and so forth) are not camera tricks or any other kind of special effect. They are actually done by choreographer Michael Moschen, who is an accomplished juggler. Moschen was actually crouched behind Bowie with his arm(s) replacing Bowie’s. Unlike a typical Muppet performance, however, he had no video screen to view his performance. In other words, his manipulations were performed completely blind.
