The adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's story, directed by Spike Jones will be in theatres this fall. The film has seen multiple setbacks so I hope this fall date is for real. Some of the Wild Thing voices will be spoken by Forest Whitaker, James Gandolfini, and Lauren Ambrose. I have also heard Karen O of Yeah Yeah Yeah's fame is doing the soundtrack.
Hurry the fuck up already!!!

As of 1996, he has collaborated with Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and others on the band's website, and appeared in the occasional band webcast and the 2001 Grammy Awards ceremony.

I've been on a big John Coltrane trip latley.
Pharoah Sanders was along side Coltrane during some of his most explosive music making.
After Coltrane died, Pharoah Sanders helped carry the torch somewhat.
