A Muppet Mecca For Fans Of David Bowie And Jim Henson

Fans of Jim Henson and David Bowie should plan a visit to Atlanta this fall. The city's Center for Puppetry Arts is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the muppet musical Labyrinth with a special exhibit for the public.

Fans of the cult classic will be treated to numerous props and set pieces from the movie. Charlie Hintz of cultofweird.com says the museum exhibit will include the head of the goblin Hoggle, the throne and royal attire of Jareth the Goblin King (played by Bowie) and behind-the-scenes artwork. So the exhibit will appeal to fans of M.C. Escher's mind bending art as well.

The gallery opened Friday (September 2) and runs for an entire year, until September 3 2017.

If you can't make the trip, there are plenty of other ways to celebrate the film's 30th anniversary. You can play the Labyrinth boardgame, read the Labyrinth comics or attend one of the anniversary screenings being held across the country. But the best commemorative piece has to be the deluxe 30th anniversary blu-ray release, which comes with a replica of the stair maze from the film's climax.

And of course, you can also celebrate this milestone in muppet history by putting on the Labyrinth soundtrack and breaking out your best magic dance. Or crooning along to the music video for "Underground," the Bowie single released along with the film.

After making progress on marijuana reform, the legalization movement has stalled in two New England states. Cannabis became legal in Vermont last July, but state lawmakers did not put a regulated market for marijuana in place at that time. So while adults in Vermont can possess, grow and consume cannabis, they can't buy it legally.

Can we see some ID please?
