Wow! I haven't been this excited about a movie release in... ...well I don't even remember.
Almost everyone my age remembers this book from when we were little and I'm sure most would agree that it's one of the best childrens books ever.
So, normally I would be skeptical about the ability of Hollywood to adapt it to film. Luckily this project, which has been nine years in the making, will be directed by Spike Jonze. The screenplay was co-written by Jonze and celebrated novelist Dave Eggers. The film features music from Arcade Fireand Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs and will be released this fall.
Here I basically just write about whatever I'm into at the moment. Mostly it's music, but also some books and a good political rant every now and then, circumstances warranting. I'll post links to audio I think is worth downloading, but basically, it's just self-indulgence in the typical fashion of web 2.0 user generated content. This is blogging after all, a bare minimum amount of narcissism is implied, is it not?
If you've taken the time to read all of this you may as well check out some of my posts. And if you've gotten something from this blog or you think my writing sucks, I'm full of shit, etc.- why not reply or contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org? I would sincerely love to hear from you, whoever you are...
