Okay, first things first: you guys are amazing. Yesterday’s post was, without a doubt, one of the scariest I’ve written. It’s somehow so much easier to participate in TMI Thursday, than it is to be, well, serious. But you all…thank you. Just, thank you.
In any case, I’ve decided to take it easy today (on all of us), and share something that I’m totally looking forward to:
You see that cast? Jack Black, Michael Cera, Paul Rudd, etc. Stellar. I. Can’t. Wait. This preview came on when we saw I Love You, Man and I could not stop laughing. This could mean that I’m just easily amused. OR, Year One could be the hit of the summer. Only time will tell.
Also, as I was perusing the movie trailers, I came across one for Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs. Now, I know they’re turning Where the Wild Things Are into a movie, but is this a trend in children’s books? It’s not enough to just be a bedtime story anymore? I’m not really a purist in this regard, but some things are better left untouched. (It’s possible that I was just disillusioned with The Polar Express – whatever.)
However, if Hollywood’s taking requests, I’m pulling for Strega Nona – one of my favorites as a kid. Wikipedia sums up the plot in about a paragraph. I’m sure we could stretch that to an hour and a half.
Think about. This could be solid gold.
