Jareth & Hottie 4eva

Man oh man. I do love me some David Bowie. I love him in all his manifestations - Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke - but I love him the most as Jareth, The Goblin King in Labyrinth. This man fostered some freaky preadolescent fantasies, let me tell you. This is one of my favourite childhood movies. I mean, look at the combination - David Bowie and Jim Henson? Hello? My hyperactive imagination went into light speed overdrive with this movie. I loved Hoggle, even though he went around fumigating fairies, and who can forget The Bog of Eternal Stench. But above all this is Bowie, dancing around in tights and tossing baby Toby into the air. Then there's the scene when he tells Sarah "Just let me rule you. Fear me, love me, do what I say and I will be your slave." Stupid girl choses the baby. I mean, the only thing better than being David Bowie's love slave would be if he cloned himself. Two David Bowies. With that voice. In spandex. Oh my. Now I REALLY need to go lie down...
