Re: The Labyrinth Phenomenon new [re: Adam]  

I'll tell you something that is a fact about The Labyrinth - like it or loath it, it's his best ever acting role.

In reply to:

I think it might be a mainly American phenomenon.

That is probably true. But even dropping the rest of the world out of the equation, it seems extremely unlikely to me that 95% of Bowie fans in 20 to 32 group in the US got to him through the movie - for one thing, that would signify that roughtly 95% of Bowie fans in the said age group are women, as the appeal of Bowie in the film is aimed almost exclusively on girls (as signified by the term labygirl). Now it's possible that a handful of labyboys exist somewhere, but so must women who didn't get into Bowie through the movie. And it seems extremely unlikely/borderline impossible that there would be such a notable gender imbalance in Bowie's stateside fanbase.

No Kraut Phenomenon new [re: K]  

In Germany, where Bowie has always had a solid to major fan base even in his worst days, the film flopped back then and has never been sighted since. It would be hard to detect a Bowie fan who was attracted to Daddy by it. Then and now.

And I want to believe that a light's shining through somehow

sex and the church new [re: EJ]  

Maybe the strict censorship of nudity and sex on American TV has created a large demand for the next best thing - men with prominent bulges.

Battle of the Bulge new [re: Adam]  

You may jest, Adam, but I think you're right - I've met many a woman who counts seeing that stuffed banana hammock as a key moment in her sexual awakening. You throw a thing like that into a film aimed at the slightly pre-pubescent and you've got lightning in a bottle.

I'm casting around trying to think of the straight-male equivalent, but the closest I've got is Leia in the gold bikini.

No wonder I get no 'tang [re: Emil]  

Actually, surprisingly no, I was never a comics guy. Great call, however, that's exactly what I meant.

Re: No wonder I get no 'tang new [re: Marquis]  

Wonder Woman TV series was definitely sexually formative. A powerful woman with her own ropes and lassooing skills: who could resist?

Slan libh,


Sorry, I'm all out of glib wit

confessions of a preteen Swede new [re: Dara]  

Actually, thinking about it; I did read superhero comics. But I don't remember ever thinking of those in sexual/romantic terms. Those who got that kind of attention from me in my preteens were others.

It's LABRYNTH, idiot!
