If you were a youngster in the 80’s, there is a very high likelihood that one movie, and one movie alone, caused you to first be aware of the power of raw, forbidden sexuality.
Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, a monument to fantasy, puppetry, and snugly packed male genitalia was the movie that made me first aware of the hotness of age gap dynamics. Bronwyn Green and I love this movie. We even have this friendship test for new people we meet: if someone doesn’t like Labyrinth, it is unlikely that we will have much else in common.
So imagine our horror when we found out that Jessica Jarman has never, ever, in her entire life, seen Labyrinth.
This is a situation that must be rectified. What better way than with a Twitter watch-a-long. And what better time than to celebrate David Bowie’s 68th birthday?
The “Force Jess To Finally Watch Labyrinth” watch-a-long!

Hop on Netflix or start your DVD (or VHS. You know you own it on one of those formats) at 9 P.M. EST and tweet to the hashtag #MagicBulge. We can all share our fond memories of the vague discomfort caused by David Bowie’s tights.
