Reporter: "What do you say to parents who think the Wild Things film may be too scary?"

Sendak: "I would tell them to go to hell. That's a question I will not tolerate."

Reporter: "Because kids can handle it?"

Sendak: "If they can't handle it, go home. Or wet your pants. Do whatever you like. But it's not a question that can be answered."

Sendak: "This concentration on kids being scared, as though we as adults can't be scared. Of course we're scared. I'm scared of watching a TV show about vampires. I can't fall asleep. It never stops. We're grown-ups; we know better, but we're afraid."

Reporter: "Why is that important in art?"

Sendak: "Because it's truth. You don't want to do something that's all terrifying. I saw the most horrendous movies that were unfit for child's eyes. So what? I managed to survive."

have you seen it already? we were thinking of going last weekend, but zeke and i were sick. then because of all the drugs we had to buy, we were a little tight to go this weekend... however, we plan on going next weekend when we get paid again was it awesome? (if you went) i'm really excited for it. more excited than zeke i think.
you should really kick that nasty drug habit if it's causing your finances to be tight.

and no, i didn't actually see it. just came across this random segment from an interview and thought it was awesome.
haha, antibiotics are expensive for two people!! and having to buy cough syrup, cough drops, kleenex, and the such. i dropped $60.00 at the drug store!! i could have dipped into the savings or credit cards... but it was also nice out today, so zeke wanted to ride his bike more.
