I have embloggened a new blog in which you learn about what I am doing, bees, and Art Spiegelman’s WORDLESS. 

You can spot a great user of language by the way they cease to give any fucks at all.

Clearly Neil Gaiman makes a better Dickens than Simon Callow and Gonzo combined.

I was faintly disappointed that nobody in the audience turned blue and wraithed about the room.
On the other hand, I was delighted at the end by being suprised by Neve McIntosh (AKA Madame Vastra the Silurian Lesbian Victorian) who turned up and said nice things, and made up for the missing Gelth…

Neil. You’re looking cool as the Dickens.

Ah, you’ve caught me. I am an international consortium of playboys, who have banded together to fight crime anonymously. “Neil Gaiman” is merely an identity we use when necessary to gain entry to underground lairs and casinos.

Reason #114,625 to love Neil Gaiman.

No no you don’t understand: I wrote this! And Paul made it into something amazing! And it even has my Imaginary Neil in it!

Damn you, Imaginary Neil. You’re always right.

i was gifted hand-knit neil gaiman and amanda palmer puppet likenesses in perth by a gal named krystel rose hewett (@zendarenn on twitter).

the detail, from neil’s black removable jacket to my kimono and obi, is quite stunning.

notable: full pubic hair and boobs on the amanda palmer, yet…

I have something in both eyes and also my heart

"

If you only write when you’re inspired you may be a fairly decent poet, but you’ll never be a novelist because you’re going to have to make your word count today and those words aren’t going to wait for you whether you’re inspired or not.

You have to write when you’re not inspired. And you have to write the scenes that don’t inspire you. And the weird thing is that six months later, a year later, you’ll look back at them and you can’t remember which scenes you wrote when you were inspired and which scenes you just wrote because they had to be written next.

The process of writing can be magical. Mostly it’s a process of putting one word after another.

This week Neil Gaiman, a longtime fan and occasional writer for the show, revealed on Tumblr that a black actor had been offered the role in a previous regeneration but turned it down.

Gaiman also had some controversial opinions on the topic of casting a female Doctor. Answering questions on his Tumblr, he wrote:

Do I think it’s time to cast a woman as the Doctor? Not yet. Not quite. And lord, if and when they ever do that, I want them to keep it the biggest secret in the world until we see it happen on our screens during the regeneration.

When a fan asked him what he meant by “Not yet. Not quite,” he explained that if he was showrunner then he’d absolutely consider a woman for the next regeneration, adding:

Some of that is stuff I’d find hard to articulate, mostly having to do with what kind of Doctor you follow Matt Smith’s Doctor with: someone harder and much older and more dangerous and, yes, male feels right to me, as a storyteller.

To many Doctor Who fans, this will seem like another case of male writers rationalising the “need” for another male Doctor in a 50-year run of male Doctors. Much like how Peter Capaldi (or David Tennant, or Matt Smith, or Christopher Eccleston…) being “perfect” for the role is the explanation for why yet another white actor was cast. [READ MORE]

This article, specifically gaiman’s quotes, which i hadn’t yet seen, nearly just sent me into a rage blackout on Twitter. oh my god, i’m so floored and frustrated by that “Not quite” i could cry, and i want to go fucking shove all of the six gaiman books i own down a fucking drain pipe.

I can’t believe people would assume Neil’s sexist based off this. I’m not blind to his flaws, but he’s not a misogynist, and to project that onto him without understanding why he said this is ludicrous.

He’s the one who canonically opened the door for time lords to change gender, remember. I think it’s a bit hasty to go flushing your books just yet.

It’s like Stephen King and Neil Gaiman started building a town in The Sims and then just… Left it running. For years.

THAT IS THE BEST DESCRIPTION I’VE EVER HEARD FOR THE SHOW.


Basically.
