Spike Jonze Interview

Moriarty over at Ain’t It Cool News recently posted a great interview with Spike Jonze. If you are half as excited for Where The Wild Things Are as I am you need to read this interview! Now someone just needs to turn Strega Nona into a movie and my life will be complete (I love kids books if you haven’t noticed).

    Spike Jones is a genius.

    The only thing about this movie that has me even MORE excites is the fact that Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs is doing the soundtrack. SHIT YES. i love their music. i love this book, i love spike jonze and i can’t WAIT to see this.

Photographer Captures Rare Natural Phenomenon

Kagaya1

Japanese photographer and digital artist Yutaka Kagaya happened to be in the right place at the right time, capturing what looks like a rainbow-blasting airplane flying above Oshino-Mura, Yamanashi Prefecture. While the effect can be explained as a form of cloud iridescence, that’s still pretty amazing! Check out a spectacular close up shot below!
