Roommates 209 - Younger

In which the artist caught the 25th anniversary of Phantom,


In which Jareth is less than happy about time passing in a linear fashion rather than as a big ball of wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff. Ding.

Did anyone else ever notice how the guys playing the Phantom have been getting younger and younger?

Erik belongs to Leroux and Webber.
Jareth belongs to Henson, Lucas, and Bowie.
Quote regarding time goes to the Dr. Who people.

Eh what's he complaining about? Bowie looked ageless and even if they remade Labryinth I doubt they could find an actor nearly as fae. Well maybe Tilda Swinton...but that could get alittle weird what with the snake symbolism and all.

Ramin is my favorite phantom! Haha, poor Jareth.  Canonically, Erik is over 100 if you count Leroux.

I have literally just realised that Karimloo is Ramin Karimloo the Enjolras from the 25th aniversary which also has Hadley Fraiser :XD:, I love conections do we fight for the right of a night at the opera indeed.

Funny old world, isn't it? I think they've also played Valjean and Javert opposite of each other, as well.

Huh really I'll have to look that up ... Yep Fraser Was Javert and Karimloo was Valjean. I wonder how those two fell about this? Perticularly as Javert good freinds with Eric.

It is just me or did Erik just get younger between panel 1 and 2?

Wow...never really thought about how Jareth and the Doctor would get along since they both deal with wibbly-wobbly-timey-wimey.
AsheRhyder's avatar
Timey-wimey indeed.

On a different topic: Jareth's face in final panel: the reason I read/watch manga/anime. That face. I just LOVE it when they make that face. And relax Jareth. David promised he would never get old and he's God so he can totes do that. Oh yeah, listening to that later. Or singing it now. . . There's never gonna be enough bullets! Never gonna be enough sex! Never, ever gonna get old! (Um bullets David? Cause you aren't John Lennon. . . Ironic David Bowie's life plot twist: Fate goes: Ha! You've been freaking out about assassination since old John got killed. Plot twist! I give you heart attack and almost dying on stage! Fans: *Complete shock face of horror* NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So glad he lived. I don't fancy offing myself from grief, but yeah. Bowie: 1, Fate: 0, Cocaine abuse: 1. Don't do drugs kids.)

Fortunately, the manga is now complete, so if you do read it, you won't have to wait two years from start to finish. The down time really creates a drag on the narrative.

I don't know which sequel is worse: LND or Return to the Labyrinth.

*TotalevilmonsterfaceofutterandcompleteDOOM* Who DARES suggests Tom Felton play my arch deity?!?! HAVE AT THEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DAVID BOWIE'S PICTURE IS NEXT TO THE WORDS HOT, SEXY, ATTRACTIVE, FUCK-WORTHY, AND EVERY SYNONYM IN ANY LANGUAGE IN EXISTENCE AND IN EVERY DICTIONARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*mind explodes at the thought that any human being outside my siblings-and conservative mother-could even POSSIBLY find him REMOTELY anything other than sheer, male perfection* Let me put it this way. I am nearly 26. The man is a little over forty years older than me at 66 this January 8th. (F@#$ off Elvis, you've been replaced.) And I would leap, no. Commit murder, for the chance to do many horrible, unspeakable, wonderful things to and with him. I know straight men, straight as arrows, who said in no uncertain terms, and I quote: :Uh, yeah, if David wanted me. . . yeah I'd totally just bend over and take it cause he's a god." He married the world's hottest supermodel. (And their daughter is so cute I die whenever I see pictures of her!) The man can have *literally* anyone, of any gender, of any orientation, solely because he is David F@#$ing Bowie. Or as I like to call him, my Lord and Master, God, etc. The reason Jareth's insane sex appeal is so off the charts? Totally because he's basically a straight version of Ziggy Stardust. (I will deny this if He ever asks if I said it but yeah.) Look up Ziggy Stardust. It's a miracle befitting the entire book of Exodus that the man did not catch every single STD ever heard of and die. (Still scratching my head on that one.) Ziggy invented sex being nearly what it is today. In fact, I'm pretty sure he invented sex. I would not be surprised. At the least he invented all the fun ways in which it is done today. I'm pretty sure Tom Felton doesn't have the. . . shall we say, experience necessary to accurately portray the Goblin King. And he's too young. I mean, Felton could pass for a teen if he wanted. And the whole Jareth being much to old for Sarah and all the legal problems with this, is an inappropriate but hilarious part of Laby fandom. Only the original Jareth can appropriately choose an heir. I guarantee you Laby fans would gleefully murder anyone who attempted to portray God, I mean Jareth, without Bowie's Blessing.

Sorry for the rant. But I *literally* worship David Bowie. If the Christian God is real I am going to Hell for blasphemy, idolatry, and soooo many other offenses. My apartment/iPod/wardrobe is a shrine to him. For the sake of my sanity, please post: Bowie Cult Members DO NOT READ the next time you feel the need to discuss him being less than the epitome of male perfection, and/or Tom Bloody Felton as the next Jareth. I think I nearly had a heart attack. I need to lie down now. . .

XDDD Just Jareth's face!~ He was right way back before though; David Bowe is immortal; Jareth doesn't need to worry about age there X3

He certainly seems to be...
