I get the feeling that you watched far too much Dark Crystal and Labarinth when you were little :)

'Blood Tea and Red String' is my favourite film ever, but the Froud films are definitely second. :D Also, David Bowie's Crotch of Doom.

(Also also, I saw both Labyrinth *and* the Dark Crystal in the theater when they came out. Which totally dates me, but is also *fabulous* and explains my childhood. >_>;; :P)

Well that rather beats me, my parents just had them on Video and I watched them constantly.
I remember in art at Alevel mentioning The Dark crystal, the never ending story, Battery's not included, Tron and all the other films that were just normal in my life and they had never heard of them. Its like moving to a country and no one there having ever herd of where you were born, it was very dishartening.
I shall have to look up this Blood tea and red string film, you seem to have good taste :).

Yes well, I'm an old lady. :P

I go to scifi conventions and meetups to get my geek fixes. :D yeys!

You should! It's on dvd here [link] and I think it's available on Netflix-like services if you have one of those. ^___^ :heart:

I saw a short trailer for it on YouTube, odd even for me but does look rather cool.

This one totally freaks me out. I would definitely have nightmares if it was in my house. (I have a touch of arachnophobia/fear of anything that skitters.)

That said, the fact that it freaks me out is probably a good indication that you did an awesome job on this on--which you did. :D
