Yet Another Brief Post Centered Primarily Around A Video

Quickly and then sleep.

My copy of The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman has finally arrived. I have not yet started reading it, as I’m afraid I won’t be able to stop once I do. Temptation will win out soon enough (most likely when I wake up later).

If you have never seen The Mindscape of Alan Moore, the 2005 documentary about Alan Moore, I’ve just learned that it is on Youtube. In its entirety.

I felt the immediate urge to share this information with as many people as possible.

Here:





If you’re a fan of his work, or just have an interest in him as a person (as he is quite the interesting character, to put it lightly), it is well worth the time spent watching it. It might give you a bit of insight into why I consider myself a member of the Church of Moore.

Sleep now, reading later.

Just A Couple Of Things

December 2, 2008 2 comments

First off, I’ve drifted away from doing surveys and memes and the like lately, which is mostly due to the fact that most of them seem to be the same thing repeated again and again.

But I enjoyed the idea behind this one, so I decided to toss it up here.

Feel free to post your results in the comment section. I’ll look at it, I promise.

Secondly, one of the coolest YouTube videos I have ever come across:

That would be the mind bendingly gorgeous and equally mind bendingly talented Amanda Palmer, in her underwear, playing an accoustic ukulele version of Radiohead’s Creep for Neil Gaiman, who then shows her a youtube clip of “Everything Sounds Like Coldplay Now” by Mitch Benn. (which is here and is hilarious and you should definitely give it a view)

That’s like a black hole of awesome. It really is. It’s like if even one more single cool thing/person/song/etc. were to wander into the room, it would in fact be too much awesome for the universe to handle in one place, and the timespace continuum would shatter into an infinite number of tiny bits.
