What do Spike Jonze, Dave Eggers, Arcade Fire, and the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s have in common?

This awesomeness!

Ok, so when I was little, I used to love this book, and now Spike Jonze has made it into a movie that will be coming out in October 2009.  Dave Eggers even helped write it!  I’m going to pee my pants with excitement!

You know what else is cool?  You might recognize the song from the trailer–it’s a re-recording of “Wake Up” from Arcade Fire’s Funeral (2004).  Love it.

And to top it all off, the soundtrack for the movie will feature the Yeah Yeah Yeah’s, who are apparently BFF with Spike Jonze (or something like that).  Holy crap.  Does October 16th, 2009 sound like it’s going to be the best day of your life?  I think it does.
