You grow up readin’ about pirates and cowboys and spacemen and stuff, and jus’ when you think the world’s all full of amazin’ things, they tell you it’s really all dead whales and chopped-down forests and nucular waste hangin’ about for millions of years. ‘Snot worth growin’ up for, if you ask my opinion. — Good Omens (Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman)




Coraline is a masterfully made film, an amazing piece of art that i would never ever ever show to a child oh my god are you kidding me

Nothing wrong with a good dose of sheer terror at a young age

"It was a story, I learned when people began to read it, that children experienced as an adventure, but which gave adults nightmares. It’s the strangest book I’ve written"

-Neil Gaiman on Coraline

When the last living thing dies, my job is finished. I’ll put the chairs on tables, turn out the lights and lock the universe behind me when I leave.



i want a good omens movie but it has to be perfect and it won’t be therefore i do not want a good omens movie

The Good Omens movie is announced.

Neil Gaiman publicly states his approval with every aspect of the movie, and stresses how true it is to the book, how thoroughly it does it justice.

So does Terry Pratchett.

It has an absolutely perfect cast.

The director is an even better choice.

All promotional material looks wonderful.

A release date is set.

The trailer is incredible.

The premiere is a very exclusive event.

All early reviews come in positive.

Fans wait patiently in giant lines for a chance to be the first into the theatre for the midnight screenings.

They file into their seats.

They wait through the previews.

"Now: Our Feature Presentation" scrolls across the screen.

The screen goes black.

The Best of Queen begins to play.

In its entirety.


In glorious surround sound.

My cousin Helen, who is in her 90s now, was in the Warsaw ghetto during World War II. She and a bunch of the girls in the ghetto had to do sewing each day. And if you were found with a book, it was an automatic death penalty. She had gotten hold of a copy of ‘Gone With the Wind’, and she would take three or four hours out of her sleeping time each night to read. And then, during the hour or so when they were sewing the next day, she would tell them all the story. These girls were risking certain death for a story. And when she told me that story herself, it actually made what I do feel more important. Because giving people stories is not a luxury. It’s actually one of the things that you live and die for. — Neil Gaiman (via jaynestown)


We wish you a merry Christmas, a cool Yule, a perfectly lovely Englishmas, a very late Chanukkah, an only slightly late Solstice, a hot and happy Kwanzaa and a glorious Draw On New Eyebrows For Chthulhu Day.

Frankly, pretty much anything you are celebrating, we are for, as long as it doesn’t involve being mean to other people. And to prove it we offer this photo to the world, taken by kylecassidy.



This is one of my fave moments of the musicians@Google event!

—Also, sorry Neil! I love you!

What, like you’ve never tried to drink your microphone?


charades. handsome husband-in-residence @neilhimself writes the best ones. he claims he likes writing them better than playing the game itself. you don’t say.



He looks so surprised and impressed to see his character walking about.

I always am…


Only six days until Amanda comes home from tour…

Not that I’m counting or anything, of course.
