Song from one of the CDs I bought for Lil’ Pirate Dude. I sometimes play it on repeat, but for my benefit, not his. #justbreathe #enjoylife #solorespirar (It’s a CD of songs in English & Spanish :)

'My heart will always belong on stage but what pushed me toward film is the ability for people to access it. It's always there. If you need inspiration, comfort, relief… you can get it anytime.'

One reason why we need more theatre archived for future generations

hannahkollef asked: Hi Mr. Gaiman (Mr. Neil Gaiman? Mr. Neil? There needs to be an etiquette book for addressing your favorite author online). I'm a self-published author on Amazon, and I got an email from them regarding the conflict with Hachette this morning, trying to persuade us to write in support of Amazon. Thought it might interest you to see what the enemy is saying. I put it on my tumblr if you'd like to take a look--its the most recent post. Hope it helps! -HK


Answer:

neil-gaiman:

I don’t see an enemy. I see two huge multinational corporations having a fight over contracts and terms, and authors staring up at them from ground level. It’s like Godzilla battling Gamera, and we’re looking up from the sidewalks of New York rather worried that a skyscraper might topple on us. I liked Chuck Wendig’s summary and commentary at http://terribleminds.com/ramble/2014/08/09/in-which-amazon-calls-you-to-defend-the-realm/.

I’m a Hachette Author in the UK. My wife’s a Hachette Author now, and she has a big book coming out in November, which you cannot pre-order through Amazon. Which sucks. I don’t regard Amazon as the enemy, any more than I regarded Barnes and Noble as the enemy when they had a dispute with DC Comics and stopped selling the hundred top DC Comics Graphic Novels in their stores (which included 17 books by me, including all Sandman).

But this seems like a good time to remind people about other places to buy books. Like you could preorder THE ART OF ASKING from Powells at http://www.powells.com/biblio/18-9781455581085-42.

Or you could use http://www.indiebound.org/book/9780062255662 to find the Indie Bookshop nearest you to get your copy of THE OCEAN AT THE END OF THE LANE, if you haven’t yet read it.

Today we start the @24thst #BookClub - read a chapter of a book as a team & discuss what the organization can use from it to improve our work. I’m leading discussion today on Invitation to the Party , a chapter on how @publictheaterny fulfilled George Wolfe’s directive to make the lobby of the Public look like the streets of New York .
I chose this chapter because 24th ST already accomplishes some of these goals (obviously replacing New York with Los Angeles) but we can learn how to mend some gaps through Donna Walker-Kuhne’s experience. (at 24th Street Theatre)
