NEIL SQUEE



Today (yesterday?), I had the great fortune of getting to see Neil Gaiman give a reading at Temple University in Philadelphia! He read a poem entitled "The Day the Saucers Came" and an unpublished short story called "How to Talk to Girls", both of which were a delight and so typically Gneil. :D He also answered a bunch of questions afterwards.

In the subsequent booksigning, I gave him a CD with my Sandman Project images, which he seemed excited about (I had Destruction on the cover), and I got his autograph in my little black book. I'm proud to say I did not dissolve into a quiverring glob of fangirly mush, and instead kept my composure. My ability to form a coherent sentence was only slightly reduced! Go me!

Also, I tape recorded his entire talk, figured out how to digitize it cleanly in Audacity, and it is now available for your listening pleasure in two parts. Note that there's a few-second gap where I had to flip the tape over.

Part 1 -- 43mb, 47:05 min
Part 2 -- 16mb, 17:32 min

Please let me know if I'm stepping on any toes, making this recording available online. I'll remove the files immediately.

I have envy! :D I'm sure he'll love the Sandman stuff you did. CD was a good idea. Not to pretentious, and you can fit all of 'em. Well done, wot wot.

I got your Greece postcard today. I swear to you, your handwriting on it EXACTLY matches that of pink_amoebas. Even the little peace/love/pirate symbols at the bottom - she's been using variations on that (used to be a smiley, not a pirate) since I met her in 8th grade. Creepy, man. For a moment I thought maybe it was a postcard SHE bought in Greece at the end of last school year and never got around to sending. That's how weird it was to glance at.

Hey

Just randomly came across your journal by Googling for the poem Gaiman read. Thanks for the recording; I've been passing the link to people who were and weren't there, and they appreciate it.

Nice art-schtuffs, by the way.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! I saw him in October and omgyay. *dreamy sigh* I video'd his reading from Anansi Boys, as well as the dedication, but the files are HUGE. I can totally reupload them to yousendit, if you're interested though.

Hi, btw! Here by way of glock, as I'm forever fangirling your joint work and I have no idea why I didn't come by before. The sandman work on your website is just... wow. awesome, too. I haven't been through the entire thing yet, but I plan to. :D

Oh my

I don't know you, but I must say -- GODS YOU ARE LUCKY. To meet Neil Gaiman...*drifts off* ..ahem, pardon me.

I was simply looking for some good fanart, and stumbled upon something you did for Harry Potter. But when I clicked it, it brought me to your live journal, and what is the first thing I see? Neil Gaiman.

I tip my hat to you, miss. Not only for getting to meet him, but as a 'well done' from one artist to another.
