Weird Wednesday – David Bowie, Can You Hear Me?

As a little girl, I remember a friend loaning us a movie to watch. Sitting in the car, I looked at the back of the VHS cover, turned to my mom and asked, “Mommy, who’s that woman wearing all the makeup?” “That’s not a woman,” she said, “… that’s David Bowie.” That movie was “Labyrinth,” a movie that also sparked my love for Brian Froud and only fueled the fire in my heart for Jim Henson. It’s a crazy, kooky fantasy movie that, I’ll confess, isn’t for everyone (but I’d recommend you see it at least once, and with friends!) Today’s Weird Wednesday all started when I found this adorable felted Ludo (a character from the movie):

As you can see, I’m not the only one with an appreciation for the movie, the actors, the creators and artists (and labyrinths themselves!) So, as cheesy as the movie may be – it was made in the 80’s, guys – it holds a lot of nostalgia for me. It also might help explain why every day is Halloween in my head.

Share the Love,
