That doc can dance!

Tonight I was watching the special "making of" documentary on the original Labyrinth (yep, for the THESIS) when up popped the choreographer – one Cheryl McFadden. Who looked an awful lot like... Blink, blink. Wait a second! That's Gates McFadden! Yep, Dr. Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation was the choreographer on both Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. Bonus cool points: she's from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. Also discovered while briefly trolling IMDB tonight: Katie Holmes is from Ohio, too – from the eternally-maligned (although somewhat rightfully so) Toledo.

Ah, Ohio. It's a great state to leave. :-)


Uhhhhh..are you bashing the state that you actually WANT to move back to? That just seems odd to me.

Don't get me wrong -- I do want to move back and build my barn studio there someday. I'm just saying it's a great state to be originally from, then to go somewhere else, and maybe go back to. You don't HAVE to go back there, although I think the state would be better off if more of its expats eventually did.
