  1. Fictional Character Crushes: Don’t Pretend You Don’t Have Them

    Sara's Top Fandom Crushes. Apparently, I kind of have a "type." Don't judge. ;-)

    Different characters can "speak" to different parts of our psyche at different times in our lives and heck, let's be honest - at different times of the same day. I have broken down my fictional crushes into some categories to help organize my thoughts on the matter. Feel free to share your own crushes and opinions in the comments!

  3. Sequel Is an Art Show About Those Follow-Up Films We’ll Never See

    No sign of Super Mario Bros. 2.

    My friends, we are never going to see Natalie Portman as a grown hitwoman taking bloody vengeance on the mafia that failed to protect her mentor and guardian the moment he talked about getting out of the game. We're never going to find out what might have happened if the Goblin King returned decades later. And yes, we're probably never going to see a Hellboy III.

  4. Life Lessons Learned From Labyrinth, Redux: You Remind Me of the Babe

    Seven more life lessons!

    Ever since I wrote the original Life Lessons Learned from Labyrinth article, I couldn't stop thinking of more!

And... okay, stop. Focus. Without further ado, I give you seven more important life lessons learned from Labyrinth!

  5. Fraggle Rock, Labyrinth And Musical Monsters: Archaia Honors Jim Henson’s Legacy

    Dance your Con cares away!

    As a Henson nerd, one of the highlights of New York City Comic Con for me was attending the "Jim Henson Company: Upcoming Comics With Archaia" panel. Unfortunately, it also gave me some pretty unrealistic career goals. How exactly does one become a Henson historian? Just asking for a friend.

  6. Turns Out There’s No Labyrinth Sequel In the Works After All

    BALLS.

    Yesterday we shared with you a little tidbit buried in a Variety article—that The Jim Henson Company is working on a sequel to Labyrinth, the movie that slingshotted so many geeks of a certain *cough* age straight into puberty. Alas, we are here to tell you that Variety punked us all—the Labyrinth sequel is not actually happening. Your mileage may vary.

  8. 7 Important Life Lessons Learned from Labyrinth

    That owl does NOT have your Hogwarts letter.

    It is kind of (really, totally) possible that I have a bit of a Labyrinth problem. But that’s all beside the point. Somewhere along the way, I began to realize that maybe the reasons I love Labyrinth so much have more to do with the wisdom hidden within than they do with my desire to name my next pet Sir Didymus. Without further revelation of the depths of my personal nerd-dom, I present some important life lessons learned from Labyrinth.

    No, you're crying to a David Bowie song!

    In delightful news, Toby Froud, the man who as an infant played Sarah's half-brother in Jim Henson's 1986 movie Labyrinth, is now a puppeteer and director.

  12. Things We Saw Today: Arrow‘s Harley Quinn, Makeup, Pigtails, And All

    Harley Quinn's Arrow cameo consisted only of her voice (Tara Strong) and the back of her head (actress Cassidy Alexa), but as we can see from this pic Michael Rowe (aka Deadshot) posted to Instagram, the hair and makeup team did not skimp on Harley-ing her up. Feel free to lose your minds in the comments. (Blastr)

  13. Geek Lip Balm for Half a Dozen Fandoms Probably Smells Great

    i'll just leave this here

    According to Geek Fire Labs, Loki smells of peaches and honey, Katniss of cinnamon and french vanilla, Marceline of strawberries, and your patronus of white chocolate, vanilla, and mint. I don't have problems with any of these, and if you feel the same way, you can buy their charmingly decorated lip balms on Etsy, alone, in a batch, or as a gift set with cute buttons.

  15. Goblin Causes Police Station Evacuation

    Cops are powerless against goblins.

    There are a lot of downsides to hosting a subletter in your house, especially when they leave their goblins lying around all the time. At least that's what one Zimbabwean family discovered last week when they sought the authorities help in dealing with their tenants' wily goblin and caused an entire police station to flee in fear.

  16. CW Acquires Labyrinth Miniseries (Not That Labyrinth)

    Holy Rusted Metal Batman!

    You all are awfully lucky Jill and Rebecca told me it was too mean to not include that parenthetical in the title. The bad news is, nobody is remaking Jim Henson's Labyrinth as a miniseries. The good news is, nobody is remaking Jim Henson's Labyrinth as a miniseries. The other good news is the CW has just purchased a four-hour miniseries about two women searching for the Holy Grail.

    DO WANT

    You might know Bret McKenzie as one half of the Kiwi musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, or as the guy who wrote the Oscar-winning soundtrack for The Muppets, or even as Figwit from The Lord of the Rings. But you probably don't know him like this: McKenzie is writing what he describes as a "fairy-tale comedy musical" that pulls inspiration from The Muppets, The Princess Bride, and Labyrinth. It sounds awesome. So what's the sitch with the musical's development? Head under the cut to find out!
