I couldn't get enough of Where the Wilds Things Are as a kid. Today is a sad day.

I thought Spike did a pretty much perfect job with that movie. I'd love a great poster for it.

RIP.

If you get a chance, I recommend watching his recent interview with Stephen Colbert. His mind was so sharp and kept pace with Colberts wit effortlessly.

hahaha, that's awesome.

Wild Things and In The Night Kitchen had a profound effect on me when I was a kid.

Sad day indeed.

Save for Bill Watterson, he knew kids better than any of his contemporaries, and helped me, as a parent, to better understand my three year old. He will always have my thanks for that. RIP, Maurice. :pint:
