I’ve already tweeted about this, but having read it I thought it deserved a blog post too. There is a lengthy profile of Mr. Neil (a.k.a. Amanda Palmer’s guest at the Golden Globes) over at The New Yorker. It tells you a great deal about him, including were he got some of his ideas from. Personally I rather liked this bit:
Jon Levin, Gaiman’s film agent, says he recognized his client’s popularity only when he took him to a meeting at Warner Bros. and all the secretaries got up from their desks to ask for autographs. Someone said, “That never happens when Tom Cruise is here.”
I am impressed with the quality of secretaries they employ at Warner Bros..
