Do, Dump, or Marry? Spike Jonze

Director, skateboarder and all-around Gen X superhero Spike Jonze was told that turning the beloved children's book Where the Wild Things Are into a movie couldn't be done without serious artistic compromises. Well, not only did he prove his naysayers wrong, his movie was number one at the box office over the weekend!

This iconoclast has been doing his own thing for a while, though, starting out as an untrained videographer for skateboarders, moving on to direct cool videos for bands like The Beastie Boys, and following up on Being John Malkovich and Adaptation with a filmic ballad for the latch-key generation.

So boyish is this 39-year-old, Catherine Keener's son once asked him why he didn't live with his parents. What do you think about this talented guy?

I love him, always have. The Beastie Boys "Sabotage" video and the Bjork "It's All So Quiet" video is enough for lasting love. And, if I hooked up with Spike, i'd be in the cabal of cool girls. He's got an excellent track record: Sofia Coppola, Juliana Hatfield, Karen O, Michelle Williams
