Went to see Neil Gaiman last night. He was being interviewed for RTE radio, a show called Rattlebag. The interview will go out on Thurs and will be available at some stage online. Have to say, RTE could do with better signage, and allowances for people who don’t drive. Got off the bus and wandered around the RTE grounds, eventually stumbling over the radio centre.
The talk itself was very entertaining. Neil read from a few of his books, and chatted with Myles Dungan about his life and writing etc. After the interview there was a question and answer session, and then Neil signed stuff. I didn’t stay for that. He isn’t Joss Whedon after all :) BTW, Rattlebag people, you should interview Joss. Go on. You know it’d be fun. Think of all the screaming fanboys you could attract.
Speaking of fanboys… there were a few of nerdy-variety at the Gaiman showing. But I don’t mind nerds Its the D4-type pretentious nerds that I can’t stand. And lucky me (and NM) because we sat down, only to have a big old group of them sit down all around us.
And now for something completely different:
