BLOP: Labyrinth

Got a BLOP (BLast frOm the Past) for those of us born in the 80’s: David Bowie & Jennifer Connelly in Labyrinth.

Faeries, eyeball moss, talking EVERYTHING (caterpillars, walls, hands, door knockers), biting monsters on a stick–endless fascinations for an 6-year old brain! And I don’t even know what to say about the basketball team of detachable fraggle parts. WTF?

Questions:

– Was this your first conscious attraction to an adult male or a pretty girl?

– Did the Bog of Eternal Stench remind you of your dog’s butthole? Thoughts?

– Did you ever get those shoes? I have both! Jennifer’s loafers and David’s boots–are you jealous?

This was one of my favorites as a child. Right there next to Legend, which was clearly a bit scarier for me at the time. That Jim Henson–he really made a lasting impact, and I fear that may be why I [sadly] dance like a Fraggle to this day. No links to that yet. Hopefully never.
