What babe, you ask? Why, the the babe with the power of course!
You know you want to sing along – again. 😉
Recently, I was watching Labyrinth (for the nth time) the latest and greatest from puppeteer Jim Henson. Gasp, the greatest? I know, I loved the Muppets too. I even saw the 2011 film (though I still haven’t seen The Muppets Most Wanted.)
Aw… Kermie-Wermie… I wuv you too!
There’s something special about Labyrinth, though. Watching Labyrinth always makes me feel safe. It reminds me of a time when I felt safe – in the midst of anything but safety. It has been called a kind of adolescent dream and that’s exactly what it is to me: a reminder of a time when I was told (admittedly by my t.v.) that it is okay to feel conflicted. We all make mistakes and sometimes we’re not sure which way to go next, because sometimes the doors are invisible and sometimes the doors magically move around.
No matter how crazy things may get and how badly I mess things up, one day I will make my way to the Fortress of the Goblin King. And when I do, I will tell him: …. (What is that line again?)
Darn it. I must be getting old and forgetful in my old(er) age. But I still love this movie!

I was about to comment: “Man, that was a dark film!”
Then I saw David Bowie and thought … huh?
Then it hit me … not Pan’s Labyrinth! 🙂
No.. Completely different! Well, except for the strange creatures in a strange place thing. There was slightly less violence. 😉
