Labyrinth

Labyrinth

Through dangers untold, and hardships unnumbered, It's my birthday and because I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave, I've brought you a gift! Here's the third annual birthday episode - a special episode based on one of the defining movies of my life.

You've had The Iron Giant and Jurassic Park, and now.... I have reordered time, I have turned the world upside down, and I have done it all for you.

Jim Henson's Labyrinth, starring David Bowie & Jennifer Connelly is still magic to me. The puppet work is some of the best put to screen, and yet it was such a financial disappointment it devastated Jim Henson, making it the last movie he directed. It really is a phenomenal achievement though. It also introduced me to one of my first on-screen crushes: the legendary David Bowie. How you turn my world, you precious thing.

I move the stars for no one, except my listeners.

How are you enjoying my labyrinth? And don't forget to Dance, Magic Dance!
