Ain't got no real estate or jewelry or gold mines to hang me up...

This video* is 90% effective in cheering me up. Whether such cheering up is needed as a result of feeling inadequate, stressed, anxious about job hunting and studying, betraying your (almost) week long diet with Taco Bell and thus feeling (digestively) like ish, wanting skirts you can't afford, puppies you don't have space for, spousal disagreements, chipped nail polish that you've neglected for three weeks, roots coming in...



Yep. Sometimes you just need Jim Henson's puppet mastery to put things back into the light.

*"Labyrinth" is probably one of my most beloved movies. I watched it until I wore out the tape (VHS! What what!) when I was but a wee lass and even now I can't help but sigh listening to "As The World Falls Down". But maybe that's another post entirely.

I remember I had the soundtrack on tape as a kid and I'd jump on my bed to this song so much my legs would turn into rubber bands.

I'd like to say I have a crush on Bowie, but I feel it goes deeper. I just plain look up the guy and am perpetually in awe of everything he has done/does. Him and Iman are one breathtaking couple!
