My sister asked if the events of “The Labyrinth” are meant to be Sarah dreaming, or are they real? Although my primary reaction was that she shouldn’t put that much thought into any children’s movie (or any instance of David Bowie in tight pants), I’d like to take this opportunity to put so much thought into this children’s movie, that it’ll blow your mind.
So why is David Bowie kidnapping a child from an underage Jennifer Connelley?
In a time long long ago a sorcerer named Jareth fell in love with a girl named Sarah. Sarah’s father and step-mother would not let her marry Jareth because they wanted her to keep her, as a servant, to care for their other child. In a fit of rage Jareth kidnapped this other child and spirited it away to the fairy world. In this new world Jareth built a palace for his Sarah. He turned the spoiled child into a goblin, and kept it to be a servant.
Many stories of the fairy world tell us that time moves differently there than in our world (Rip Van Winkle for one). In the time it took for Jareth to build his kingdom, which he may have thought was little more than a few years, Sarah grew old and died.
Overcome by grief and addled by a lifetime spent in a strange world filled with monsters, Jareth goes mad. He refuses to believe that he has lost his love. He searches the mortal world from his castle, looking for her.
Sarah is Hebrew name. So, it is common, and has been in use for thousands and thousands of years. It does not take long (for him) to find a dark haired girl named Sarah, who has a younger sibling, and who feels that she is treated unfairly by her step mother. In a fit of rage he kidnaps this other child and spirits it away to the fairy world. Perhaps this new Sarah dies in the quest to find the child, perhaps she wins her sibling back and flees.
Jareth searches the mortal world from his from his castle, looking for her. It does not take long to find a dark haired girl named Sarah…
This is how Jareth becomes the goblin king. Every goblin in the goblin city is a child Jareth has stolen, who was not recovered by a Sarah. (he told the current Sarah that Toby would become a goblin if she did not find him in time)
This is why he builds the maze. The magic bog, the junk yard of useless treasures, all tricks to slow Sarah down. Because if he can only have his Sarah for the time it takes for her to regain the stolen child, he will make it take as long as possible, keep her as long as possible.
This is why there exists in our world a book containing the story. Because it has happened before. So many times. At some point some lucky Sarah must have returned to our world to tell the story.
This is why when the most recent Sarah first meets Hoggle at the start of the labyrinth, and introduces herself; “I’m Sarah”, Hoggle responds “That’s what I figured.”
Because of course she’s Sarah.
They were all Sarah.

Just a Game:
A 7 minute documentary about female gamers, and misogyny in the gaming community.
This could not have been made without the videos that were submitted, and without many wonderful articles written.
The aspect ratio is a little off unfortunately, but I hope you all still enjoy it, and can take something from it.
Warning for strong language use, mentions of rape, general dude-bro douche-baggery.
Please share and spread :)
you know I’m all for girl gamers and everything like they have every right to game. But let’s be honest they aren’t as good as guys and it’s a fact. when was the last time you saw a girl in a national tournament or anything of that sort? It just doesn’t happen so yes girls can game but their skill level will never be as good
OH man, you’re such a NICE GUY! So we’re allowed to play games, even though we should never expect to be as good as you wonderful strong men? WOW, thank you SO much for your permission!
Take a step back and have a look at what you just said. Thank you for being a shining example of everything wrong with the gaming community. Let girls play but they’re not as good as us. They never will be.
Biologically, there are NO advantages that men have over women that translate to gaming. None at all. But what DO men have going for them? Well for starters, their presence isn’t highly criticized from the moment they enter a tournament. Either she’s there because they want a token girl (she’s not a ‘real gamer’) or she hasn’t got a life, is ugly or fat right?
And if a guy joins a team I can bet you a lot of money HIS couch won’t spend their entire training session making him uncomfortable by trying to guess his bra size, or ask him to take his shirt off while focusing the webcam streaming the training session solely on his legs.
And heaven forbid women try to avoid this and dare to make an all female team. No, if they do that, they’re either being part of the problem (they won’t let guys play with them it’s unfair to us) or they’re doing it for attention (just because they have tits and play games they want us to watch). Either way, they’re fucked before they begin, because people like you have decided they shouldn’t be there.
The minute a woman starts trying to become an competitive gamer, the odds are stacked against her. It’s all by your terms, and your rules.
It’s not about skill levels, because the playing field isn’t level to begin with. We don’t want to be harassed, or belittled, or have to deal with ignorant people like you who assume that because you have a dick you’re going to be better than we will ever be before we’ve even started playing.
Guys are not always going to be better than girls at gaming. Guys are not better than girls at gaming now. They’ve just made sure it’s really fucking hard for a woman to reach a point where she can prove it in a way that you can’t pretend never happened.

You know, I’m not even grateful this was cut, because we still got that fucking scene implying about Jim sleeping with and forgetting Christine Chapel in STID. The fact that it was even written and filmed is troubling. It’s like the writers have never even watched TOS and are writing bad fan fiction on what pop culture jokes there are about Kirk’s personality.
This scene manages to make Kirk racist, misogynist, and completely fucking stupid in one fell swoop. They have different hair colors, you’re supposed to be a fucking genius. It makes me frustrated and want to cry. I keep imagining him going to Vulcan and losing Spock in a crowd because hey, Vulcans look alike too. God fucking damn this bastardization of Kirk’s beautiful soul.
Reason #102837261 why nu!trek doesn’t exist to me. Bullshit like this.
I can’t help liking nu!Trek with all it’s flaws, but this makes me wanna cry
I find AOS!Trek to be very shiny with lots of pretty people and pretty set pieces and pretty space. While TOS!Trek is all the substance.
I pretty much ignore all of AOS!Kirk because AOS!Kirk is an asshole. They took an amazing character like TOS!Kirk and turned him into a frat boy. Oh yea I said it, AOS!Kirk is a frat boy through and through. Because apparently Abrams and Co don’t want male characters to have ~feelings~ unless they’re manly man feelings. So being smart, respectful, kind, thoughtful, and diplomatic just isn’t good enough to be the lead male hero anymore.
Like in ST I could excuse his gross frat boy behaviors because different past+much young than his TOS counterpart.
But this movie is suppose to be what a year after that? And Kirk is STILL like this. This is no longer cute and I’m surprised he hasn’t been reported. As well as confused how he got his own ship and was able to keep it at the end of STID.
Like TOS!Kirk was a man worth following. AOS!Kirk just looks pretty in lens flares which is a shame because the AOS cast are amazing and could do so much better if the writing didn’t fuck them over at every corner

David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by Joy Division.
A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”
