Neil Gaiman as Jareth with the cool Amanda Palmer as Sarah in their reimaging of ‘Labyrinth’

Great movie, one of the few in which I’m able to remember all the people I’ve ever watched it with. Neil Gaiman sir, you are one strange fellow, and from me, that’s a compliment 😀 and Miss Amanda Palmer’s coolness is effortless, what’s her secret? – it must be in the lips and her cool tattooed eyebrows.

Dresden Dolls singer (and Neil Gaiman inamorata) Amanda Palmer has released a cheeky low-budget reinterpretation of Jim Henson’s 1980s cult classic Labyrinth.

Palmer plays Jennifer Connelly, sock puppets replace Muppets, and Gaiman assumes David Bowie’s role as Jareth, the Goblin King:

Cool, but it needed more ‘Ludo.’ While snooping I was pleased to also find Amanda covering one of my favourite songs – LCD Soundsystem “Someone Great”.She and friend Cassandra have fun with it which is most important:

Goodness I love that song. Thanks Amanda and Cassandra!
