Why Spike Jonze is awesome: reason 58 July 28, 2009

I am SO excited about the Where the Wild Things Are movie!  When I first heard of the movie, I was a bit skeptical because too often book-based movies disgrace the book, even though I love Spike Jonze.  But I have come around to the idea and am very excited, and you should be too, for these reasons:

  1. Who doesn’t love Where the Wild Things Are the book, although I do realise that could also be a reason for disapproval?!
  2. The animation/graphics or whatever they are look amazing
  3. All things in life, at least my life, come back to Weezer and Joss Weadon, and I am happy to say that this one comes back to Weezer thanks to Spike Jonze.  Please see: Undone, Buddy Holly, and Island in the Sun (the one with the SUPER cute animals; no offense Marco Siega, but nothing can compete with those animals that make me squeal with delight every time) music videos.  In a nut shell, reason 3 is that Spike Jonze is awesome.
  4. Finally, I feel really comforted and excited with the adaptation after seeing this featurette where Maurice Sendak was heavily involved with the movie and praises Spike Jonze for his interpretation.

On a craft note, I’ve really been craving a project that will give me some instant gratification and will also expand my wardrobe.  Knitting takes entirely too long, so, I bought a really cheap sewing pattern the other day for a skirt because it is kind of cute, and the pattern says ‘easy’, which means an instant gratification project and I need some new clothes.

I still have to buy some fabric for it, but I cut the pattern pieces out this evening and was excited to find that it only involves two pieces!  Yay for very instant gratification clothing, short from buying pre-made!
