    RIP Maurice Sendak

    I did a search and didn't see a post about this anywhere, but I have a feeling that there are many on here who have a strong connection to this man from their childhood. Rest in peace, Mr. Sendak.

    I love this bit from the Times article...

    As portrayed by Mr. Sendak, the wild things are deliciously grotesque: huge, snaggletoothed, exquisitely hirsute and glowering maniacally. He always maintained he was drawing his relatives — who, in his memory at least, had hovered like a pack of middle-aged gargoyles above the childhood sickbed to which he was often confined.

    Freshman year I lived in Bergman House, Larch. Monsters from "Where The Wild Things Are" were painted on our dorm. I haven't been back there since, no idea if those are still even there.
