Maurice Sendak is dead:
Pirate AND writer!I don't normally care when famous people die, but...damn.
I don't want to see them cry.The guy who wrote Where the Wild Things are? Damn, that sucks.
That weird kid who dreams a lotHe wrote Little Bear too, didn't he?
Maybe I shouldn't have eaten all those spicy wings last night...
Pirate AND writer!He only illustrated it, but he gets associated with it more often than the author does. There's another essential piece of my childhood...
I don't know him, but that sucks.
Alt account of Angeldog 2437.
Has Clearly Gone BahmiAw, damn. I loved In The Night Kitchen (and the kerfuffle over it, but that's another story) when I was a kid. (That's right, my first introduction to his work wasn't Where the Wild Things Are.) R.I.P.

All hailReally? I was wondering why they showed Where the Wild Things Are on the news (everyone was talking and I couldn't hear).
So, in the U.S., randomly stripping is a signal that you want to sing the national anthem? - That Human
SureeeeendaaaaI recommend everyone to watch the May 8 2012 episode of Colbert Report. They had just recently had Colbert talk with Maurice to promote his kids book, but the May 8 episode talks more about some of Sendak's philosophies a bit.
Many FacesDid he have a family?
You give me joy, You give me hope, You give me love that doesn't change
Knight of LaborI listened to the Really Rosie soundtrack in his honour. R.I.P., Maurice.

The Movie Explorer: discovering oddities from the cinematic jungle.
Was Aliroz the ConfusedI loved In The Night Kitchen when I was little (well, littler). Sadly, four-year-old me scribbled all over our copy of that book., and it's barely recognizable.
If you want any of my avatars, just Pm me I'd truly appreciate any avatar of a reptile sleeping in a Nice Hat Read Elmer Kelton books
SureeeeendaaaaATC: Watch this if you can. Hopefully, it'll make you feel better about drawing on the book. Wait-the quote that I was looking for isn't in this segment. WTF? I could have sworn I just heard it o_o Long story short: Kid liked his work so much, he ate it, and Maurice was really happy to hear that.
