McSweeney’s is an online lit curiosity we return to again and again for its wonderfully offbeat wit bits. Our latest favourite is James Ramsey’s imaginary Don Draper commentary of wifi passwords. Other recent McSweeney faves include Pete Reynold’s Stay-Rich-Quick Schemes and Federico Garduno’s New Crow-Scaring Techniques.
After hearing a year’s worth of speculation that this film might not see the light of day, the new Dave Eggers [McSweeney’s] and Spike Jonze adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s vividly imaginative story Where The Wild Things Are is finally hitting the big screen. And I can’t wait! The subtle use of CGI on the faces makes the creatures even more eerily believable.
