Science Fiction Brewed Fresh Daily

The Weirdest Thing You’ll See All Day

Singer Amanda Palmer spoofs Labyrinth.

this ridiculousness was made LAST summer in edinburgh while we were al there for the fringe staying with the fabulous cunninghams.

i got the idea because i was going for a daily jog down that endless walled alley and every single time i did i couldn’t help feeling like i was personally re-enacting that goddamn scene from the movie. every jog, it just got worse.

so one day i got back the cunningham’s house from my jog and asked sam if he had any poor and free filmmaker friends who might be up for coming over and making a re-make of that stupid fucking scene.

(I kept waiting for her to close her damn mouth, but apparently Jennifer Connelly does that in the movie, so she may be deliberately parodying her instead of just being a mouthbreather.)

Anyway, stick around for the cameo at the end.

p.s. – She and Neil Gaiman got married last Sunday. As Patton Oswalt put it, “Marriage of @amandapalmer and @neilhimself confirmed. Like the Hatfield/Coy War, the Nerd/Goth schism is laid to rest — by love!”
