'Where the Wild Things Are' comes up short (or so they say)

"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."

Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.


ANTICIPATION: The Thin Slices crew is eager to see the new adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are, a Maurice Sendak tale that has a warm spot in our hearts for any number of reasons, not the least of which is it's simplistic beauty. Unfortunately, the New Yorker says the film is not all that good and Reuters says it's

repetitive. Still, we're keeping an open mind. (RL)

NEW TUNE: The new Michael Jackson song "This Is It," which was the title of his tour scheduled before he died and will be the name of a movie that will be released later this month, is available now. It's a precursor to the movie and a double-CD set that is coming out, featuring new songs and remixes. "This Is It" is a ballad and you can check out a snippet here. (RL)
