0 Way Cooler than a Velvet Elvis

I often find myself drawn to things I can’t fully explain. How (or why) was Stonehenge built on a grassy plain in England? Beats me. Why do I continue to root for the Cubs, when it’s never brought me anything but disappointment? I dunno. Why would anybody want to use Cheetos to create a likeness of Elvis Presley? Damned if I know.

- I used to know the words to¬†Where the Wild Things Are better than I knew the names of close family members, so I’m incredibly excited for the Spike Jonze adaptation, which has a new poster out. It’s over at Pajiba, which is possibly my favourite website of all time. (Pajiba)
