Maurice Sendak

Maurice Sendak author of Where The Wild Things Are. From link:

In this 2004 interview with Bill Moyers, Sendak reveals some of the early childhood memories and surprisingly dark influences behind his work. Shaped by immigrant parents and the tragedy of the Holocaust, Sendak provides frank insight into his complicated psyche and a rare window into the soul of an acclaimed artist. He also discusses how he shaped the character of Max, the mischievous lead in his blockbuster book, and where he might be today.

I have known about Where The Wild Things Are. Now I know a bit about the author.

Links: Vice.com

Check out www.vice.com

Articles, comics, documentaries, and more.

One series of shows on the site worth a watch is the toxic series http://www.vice.com/toxic

I have watched the “Garbage Island” and “Alberta” shows. “Garbage Island” is about all the plastic in the oceans and “Alberta” is about the mining of the Canadian oil sands.

Nothing fascinates people like war does. We like to fight war and hate war. After the dust is settled and the dead are buried, we try not to forget what we fought for.

Remeberthewar.com is a online presentation covering all the history of WWII.

Links & Music: Rdio — Kid Loco

My wife found this great site for listening to whole albums for free:

http://www.rdio.com

Does require registration but afterwards it is completely free. Any album they have, you can listen to uninterrupted.

To you give you an idea of the vast amount of music they have: I was looking for a song from Kid Loco from an album of his from 1999 called DJ Kicks. I couldn’t find the song I wanted on youtube, but found the song and whole album on rdio.com.

For your listening pleasure, check out the tracks on youtube from Kid Loco’s DJ Kicks album (listed below), and head over to rdio and register to hear the whole album:

His music is….eclectic:
