Lyric of the Moment
"Cigarettes and whisky and wild, wild women...
They'll drive you crazy, they'll drive you insane!"
--I remember Peter Sellers on the Muppet Show doing this song...it's a great chorus to sing along to.

Inspiration of the Moment
This is The Junk Woman from the movie Labyrinth (which I watched last night with Ksenia) with her puppeteer peeking out...heh, it kind of makes the puppeteer look like part of the junk! The Junk Woman is a great inspiration for people trying to declutter. Junk Women roam a junkyard landscape with huge packs of stuff hanging on their backs, looking like semi-human snails. In the movie Agnes tries to make Sarah, the heroine, into another Junk Woman herself by bringing Sarah into a model of her bedroom and attaching all the stuff--teddy bears, pencil boxes--to her back, crooning all the while about how lovely each piece of stuff is, wouldn't want to forget that, oh my, no...

The movie is so full of cool stuff...after skimming the "making of" featurette on the DVD, I almost started to feel bad about how everything is all computer generated these days. The other hyper-cool thing was the pit of "Helping" Hands, where 4 or 5 hands would come together to make face that would talk to Sarah. Great flick!
