- I’ve known Bryan since preschool, where we were in a gang together. That is not a joke. I think we were called The Cobras and had customized camouflage t-shirts to back it up. I spent a lot of time at his house as a child- playing Excitebike, building Legos and practicing archery. Now he’s a globe-trotting creative, and I suggest you check out his burgeoning internet empire.
- Ian Svenonius is a hero of mine. He’s been in some great bands, wrote an excellent introduction to Glenn E. Freidman’s book of Fugazi photo’s Keep Your Eyes Open, and has a great interview show on VBS. Here are a few of my favorite episodes (Though all of them are great).

- I just want to make it clear RIGHT NOW that I am not just now jumping on the Where The Wild Things Are bandwagon. It has been, since my early childhood, one of my favorite books. My fandom has not been rekindled by the upcoming movie- it never got un-kindled in the first place.
That being said: I am so fucking excited to see this movie, and I am so fucking filled trepidation from all of the inevitable hipster-vomit that is sure to come out of it. Spike Jonze is one of my favorite people (not just one of my favorite directors) of all time. [Note: Dave Eggers is an entirely different story altogether (I refuse to go into it here for the sake of not wanting to get into an argument with Dawn about it later), but I’m more than willing to get past that.] I have been mostly successful at avoiding the trailers for the film since I don’t want to ruin ANY surprises, but the one before the Harry Potter movie had me tearing up with glee. Even though it had an Arcade Fire song in it. I’d also like to point out that if I do anything WWWTA-related in the future, it would be done wether or not the movie came out in October 2009.
ANYWAY- the point is Mr. Jonze, et. al., have an awesome blog about cool shit related and unrelated to the film.
We Love You So
Ok, that’s enough for today. Go read a book.
