So what happens to the kid who spends his dreams where the wild things are? He grows up to wear Junya Watanabe, duh. We all know the book and some of us enjoyed the movie, although, I don’t count myself one of those that enjoyed the film. After being punished for running around the house in his wolf costume, he imagines a world entirely separate from his bedroom and comes across the wild things. The wild things crown him the king after he stares them down and they dance all night long (all night lonngggg, all niggghtt). Soon though, Max misses his home and is back in his room. You know any kid that can pull off a wolf costume and be crowned king of the wild things would have some sick style and would wear his favorite jeans and sneakers over and over. Right brain for the win.

Fair credit: This post was Kristina’s idea. We went to college together, she writes for Gawker and if you think I’m snarky…you should meet her and her friends. SNARKTRONS.

In a recent discussion at the office, we were going over our favorite books from high school. All the usuals made their appearances, Catcher in the Rye, Pride and Prejudice, A Separate Peace, Of Mice and Men and of course The Great Gatsby. I’ve posted Jay Gatsby before and Daisy twice but thought I’d take another look with the new collections. The brief rundown is—Gatsby is rich and has a crazy love affair with Daisy, but Daisy is a greedy trollop who only cares about status. Gatsby dies and despite their love for each other, that bitch doesn’t even show up to his funeral. Good god woman, have some respect. In the crazy Jazz age of East and West Egg, there were some great parties and plenty of money floating around, so you’d best believe Gatsby had some good style or…steez.
