Movie Buzz: Where the Wild Things are (2009)

2002 was the year we last experienced a serving of Spike Jonze’s playful mind. The feature film he created was the multi-award-winning Adaptation, starring the amazing Nicholas Cage as Charlie Kaufman and Donald Kaufman. Since then, all we’ve seen of Spike Jonze’s works were video specials, mostly of skateboarding  and music.

Movie enthusiasts are blessed this year with the upcoming release of his latest film, an adaptation of Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s story, Where the Wild Things are.

The pitch: Max is sent to bed without supper and imagines sailing away to the land of Wild Things, where he is made king.

    Subject: Moving from WordPress.com to Self-Hosted WordPress Blog at your own domain name.

    This is Raman from Hire WordPress Experts.com, I will help you how you can move from a wordpress.com blog to your own independent blog.

    If you host your own blog there are several advantages. Particularly if you plan on blogging for your business. On a self hosted blog you are in complete control. Hosting your own means you will be in control of the blog, the database

    If you are using your blog as your business or part of your business, it’s not a great idea to be promoting someone else’s domain like yourname.wordpress.com – which is essentially what you’re doing if you are using a hosted version provided by wordpress.com

    Nothing could be better when you host your blog at wordpress.com? Right?

    Except that…

    * Soon or later, you find out that out of all five billion themes available, you don’t really like any of them, but you have little to no say (or skill) in customizing all but a very few of them.
    * Sooner or later, you find out that you can’t put AdSense or any kind of web widget on your blog that runs on the JavaScript language.
    * Sooner or later, you discover that all the cool functionality other blogs have from something called plugins is not available to you on WordPress.com.

    Plus, having the blog separate from your main site messes up search results because you’re sending people to two different places. It sorta weakens your search strength

    We will help you with the overall process of migrating your current blog at wordpress.com to your own personal blog.

    1. We’ll provide you web hosting which meets all requirements to run WordPress
    2. We’ll help you with deleting all the spam comments on the WordPress.com blog
    3. Export your posts and all data from WordPress.com
    4. Create a MySQL database on the new server
    5. Install and configure WordPress on your own web server
    6. Import the WordPress data
    7. Install theme(s)
    8. Install and configure additional plugins

    How long does the entire migration process take? Well, if all goes smoothly it can usually be done in two or three hours.

    What the fee? The fee is $149 per year and this include your personal .com domain name with web hosting for complete one year.

    This movie has everything you’d fall in love with. Kind of reminds me of The Never Ending Story, which is one of my favorite. Thanks for posting this.
