For lack of anything good to watch on TV, the mother and I decided to watch Labyrinth again for the Nth time. It still really hits me hard whenever I think that Jim Henson is dead and I truly, truly feel sorry for kids today who are growing up in a world without him. I probably shouldn’t be one to talk since he died just a month shy of my 5th birthday, but I still grew up watching Sesame Street, Fraggle Rock, The Muppet Show, The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth and The Storyteller. For that, I thank my parents haha.
Sometimes I watch TV with the nephews & nieces (or rather, they’ve commandeered the remote and I have no choice but to watch) and I can’t see anything in the kids’ shows today that even compare to the ones Jim Henson created. He wasn’t just a genius, he was a magician.
I miss you, Jim Henson. It would’ve been awesome to have met you.
I go cry myself to sleep nao. ;_;
