Karen O Is 'Where The Wild Things Are'

She Shoots, She Scores

Although the inter-breeding of the music industry and the film industry is nothing new, it seems musicians are looking for new ways to channel their artistic spirit, while simultaneously making a penny or two. The film score for Spike Jonze's adaptation of Maurice Sendak's classic children's book, Where the Wild Things Are, - try saying that 10 times- has been almost entirely written by Yeah Yeah Yeah's front-woman, Karen O. In an age of pirate downloads, this not only introduces a new money-making sphere for musicians but also generates a greater and varied film viewership.

I am more than prone to monologues; however, this is solely due to the manner in which they compliment a witty anecdote and their ability to resemble concrete evidence when it is so obviously lacking. I often wish I could emulate that aloof character who coolly stands in the corner smiling mysteriously as if she has a secret. However, I fear resisting the temptation to involve myself in other people’s conflicts and responding through body language rather than verbose banter may come across as contrived and arrogant. And, I am not willing to take that chance.
