An evening with Neil Gaiman and Friends and Milk!
(Central Hall Westminster - 15.10.2013)
Strangely, the Daily Mail completely failed to do an article, with photographs and blown-up details, showing my navel “escaping”, with a headline indicating that my credibility as an artist was now in doubt because you could see my tummy…
"NEIL GAIMAN MAKES A STOMACH OF HIMSELF." news at 11.
Archbishop James Usher (1580-1656) published Annales Veteris et Novi Testaments in 1654, which suggested that the Heaven and the Earth were created in 4004 B.C. One of his aides took the calculation further, and was able to announce triumphantly that the Earth was created on Sunday the 21st of October, 4004 B.C., at exactly 9:00 A.M., because God liked to get work done early in the morning while he was feeling fresh.
This too was incorrect. By almost a quarter of an hour.
The whole business with the fossilized dinosaur skeletons was a joke the paleontologists haven’t seen yet.
This proves two things:
Firstly, that God moves in extremely mysterious, not to say, circuitous ways. God does not play dice with the universe; He plays an ineffable game of His own devising, which might be compared, from the perspective of any of the other players, [ie., everybody.] to being involved in an obscure and complex version of poker in a pitch-dark room, with blank cards, for infinite stakes, with a Dealer who won’t tell you the rules, and who smiles all the time.
Secondly, the Earth’s a Libra.—
Good Omens, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
Mandatory October 21st post.
Happy birthday, Earth.
Some people point out that it’s Ussher with two S’s. But the Encyclopedia Britannica said it only had one S, so that was how we spelled it.
as we’re on the precipice of the pre-order for the “evening with” album going LIVE….i thought it’d be a good time to post THE NEW VIDEO.
this was filmed on the west coast tour from which all three discs of recordings were culled…it’s “makin’ whoopee” and it’s how we opened the show every night.
gotta say it. he’s adorable when he sings.

you know I love you but I would find it difficult having sex with a straight face if you came to bed with that haircut.
