Shira's Inbox: My Wacky Internet Finds Of The Week

(CBS)
I can't help but reminisce about my childhood every time I pass a poster or billboard for the upcoming film, "Where The Wild Things Are" opening October 16. So it's geared towards the kids, but who says adults can't embrace the film too?

Just in time for Halloween, you can even dress like one of the characters! Christian Joy, the designer behind the Yeah Yeah Yeah's Karen O's crazy costumes, has designed five monster suits based on the film. They're currently on display in New York City and you can snag one of them with proceeds going to 826LA, a non-profit writing and tutoring center.

So you know you need to cut the cord, but the concept of throwing your significant other to the curb is just not something you want to deal with. Well, look no further than IDump4U.com. It's a service that does the dirty work of dumping for you.

If the embarrassment couldn't get worse, they record some of the calls as evidence for you and the entire interwebs. Here's an example of a call -- it's so ridiculous, I'm still questioning the legitimacy. Oh well, it's still somewhat entertaining:

This guy rapped about "Falling in Love at the Apple Store" and recorded the entire music video in one take at -- you guessed it -- an actual Apple store. Now that's love at first click!

A New York Times profile of Brooklyn-based artist, Sophie Blackall, circulated the Internet this week. Inspired by Craigslist's Missed Connections section, where people can find or reconnect with romantic interests, she began illustrating artwork based on the situations. The result is some fabulously quirky art pieces that you can find on her blog MissedConnectionsNY or for purchase on Etsy.

I'll be doing these roundups each week, so if you have any awesome links or videos, send them my way! Shoot me an e-mail -- shira@shiralazar.com or tweet me @shiralazar (twitter.com/shiralazar) and include #shirasinbox.
