Okay, so it’s a little bit old (last October to be precise), but I only last night became aware of A-Trak’s excellent remix of Yeah Yeah Yeah’s Heads Will Roll.
The remix makes an already great track infinitely more danceable and provides a perfect antidote to anyone who’s getting a bit sick of hearing Karen O sing about love and wild rumpuses on the Where the Wild Things Are soundtrack.
Speaking of which, it looks like she’ll never see an Oscar nod for her work on that particular soundtrack because of the Academy’s stupid and nonsensical rules. The injustice of it all.

With the release date of the Where the Wild Things Are film fast approaching, there’s plenty of people trying to get in on the merchandising act. Urban Outfitters are stocking a number of different style t-shirts, while Opening Ceremony have gone one step further and commissioned a Where the Wild Things Are line in collabration with the movie’s director, Spike Jonze.
The collection includes an adult-sized Max suit (pictured above) with, as they put it, “super soft faux fur one piece with six brown buttons down the front, a snap off faux raccoon fur tail, attached fingerless gloves, and a hood with attached ears and a snap closure at the neck.”
I know what you’re thinking, isn’t that the perfect Halloween costume? But think again, because this creation will set you back $610. Yes, I want a Max suit but I also like being financially solvent.
There are some cheaper items in Opening Ceremony’s Where the Wild Things Are line, but by cheaper I mean $220 – and that’s for a skirt. Despite the prices, the rest of the clothes actually look wearable, with items such as Max’s lined parka from the book and skirts, jackets and more inspired by Max and the wild things.

I’ve been extremely excited about the film adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are ever since hearing about it from Joey in March. I loved this book as a child, and still do. Whenever I come across a copy of it I always read it again from start to finish (no big feat, it’s about 20 pages). Apparently the film, directed by Spike Jonze, has been altered a bit in the past year or so because it was deemed too scary for young audiences. But, guys…it’s about wild things. It has to be a little bit terrifying.
Here’s the new poster… This film is going to be amazing. I can feel it.
