Aggregate Twitterage

  • 11:43 @chiieddy I think Michael Chabon, Peter Beagle, @ekushner, avram Davidson, Moorcock, Guy Gavriel Kay & I have Jewish mothers. As do others. #
  • 13:09 @elfgirl I think if you define fantasy as "what Lewis/Tolkien/Rowling did" then your problems finding Jews is obvious. #
  • 15:43 At 2pm PST on @3liza will do a live art auction ("It's an original ink of a teensy octopus called Mr. Bloop!") #
  • 15:44 @doctorstrange if being Jewish is a quantum state of perpetual unknowability, why write an article on Jewish fantasy anyway...? #
  • 15:45 @widgettier sorry. #
  • 15:49 @swiftapp having a lot of problems with Swift giving me a tweet that's not the one I click on to reply to (& thus replying to wrong people) #
  • 15:50 @Dash_Reindeer my episode is Episode 6, I'm afraid. And no. #
  • 16:07 Why I love academics: (So many of those papers I'd love to hear or read. Probably not the ones on me, though.) #
  • 16:16 @popbunker are they not being respectful? I've seen nothing but sorrow, sympathy and respect so far. (I may be looking in the wrong places) #
  • 16:17 @TheRealJoeK79 nothing wrong with that. I'll correct academics on their facts but not on their opinions. #
  • 16:19 @peterstraubnyc It's strange when books divide people so cleanly. I never expected that reaction to American Gods, either. #
  • 16:24 Having watched @amandapalmer battle to leave her record company, nothing would surprise me. But explains a lot. #
  • < li>16:29 @ronskanky @WesleyStace I think it's either the Dave Clark 5 (all of them) or Sam and Dave (both of them) and I claim my five pounds. #
  • 16:30 Absolutely @minuferdows: Could you RT this? Petition to #save6music and #saveasiannetwork #
  • 16:31 @popbunker I fear that people who lack empathy and understanding will not gain it from reading an essay on the internet. #
  • 16:32 @Nirinia not really. Mostly it's like eavesdropping on people talking about you who've got their facts slightly wrong. #
  • 16:42 @geekgirldiva I'm not saying you cannot inform, enlighten or entertain. But empathy is something else... #
  • 17:17 @lamaupin @mistressmousey maybe not. But I was at a meeting with Bran Ferren/Imagineering in '93 that called where we are today about 95%. #
  • 17:18 @danbm favourite stories, warm milk and hugs. #
  • 17:21 @BadAstronomer you've seen ? #spellingwithelements #
  • 17:23 @elfgirl sure. All you have to do to make his theory work is ignore all the Jews who write fantasy as irrelevant. It's brilliant. #
  • 17:40 @TheTrafficker what do you like? #
  • 17:42 People ask which of my books they should begin with, but it depends on what they like. Is there an online WHICH NEIL BOOK? quiz out there? #
  • 17:43 @TheTrafficker then AMERICAN GODS, maybe? #
  • 19:50 A plug for @dakimbo as she starts her interviews for the @huffingtonpost talking to people about the post-McLuhan world #
  • 20:46 For those who want to know where to start, this might help. It's a Beginner's Guide to Neil Gaiman @eveofdoom compiled: #
  • 20:57 @CharlieSpats sorry about that... #
  • 21:09 @lamaupin the odd thing was that I don't think any of the Imagineering predictions on future of media made it across into Disney per se. #
  • 21:10 @CharlieSpats ...or at least, funny. #
  • 21:13 I miss @amandapalmer. This YouTu be video of her singing a new song last night is funny & sweet & does not help a bit: #
  • 21:37 @Diva_LadyAngel Hello, yes this is me. I don't reply to all the tweets that come in, I'm afraid. There are thousands every day. #
  • 21:41 @Carlisleboy was that because I suggested that suspension of disbelief on that one was the kind where you had to scrunch up your eyes& try? #
  • 21:42 @Diva_LadyAngel ah, I missed the "you bastard" tweet. Normally I just automatically block things like that. #
  • 21:43 @tea_n_see oh god.... #
  • 21:44 @Diva_LadyAngel you just got two replies. Three if you count this one. #
  • 21:44 @insignifikunt I don't mind vegemite, and I really like marmite. She says that's worse. #
  • 21:50 @middleearthguy never had Aus/NZ Marmite so cannot comment. #
  • 21:55 @ravendon never seen it... #
  • 22:11 @Dariohoho 90% of it is me. The other 90% is @terryandrob. #
  • 22:56 @amandapalmer 21 jars. I just counted. #Noitsnot #
  • 22:57 @Diva_LadyAngel glad I could make you happy. #
  • 22:58 @sam_eggleston I do not even know what continent I will be on in June... #
  • 23:21 Remember: if you hit Marmite with a spoon for long enough, it changes colour: #
  • 23:24 And I have 21 jars of Marmite because when I ordered them from Amazon (they sell them in 12s) one was smashed. So they sent me another 12. #
  • 23:26 @BstiNatosi You're from sock dreams? I should get my Academy Awards Nigh socks from you! No-one but me will know, of course. Suggest some! #
  • 23:27 @UltharCat I've consumed 2. #
  • 23:29 @hypocritter I have. #
  • 23:29 @amandapalmer Bovril's not a yeast spread, darling. They make it by boiling down cows into spreadable fo rm. #breakingitgently #
  • 23:30 @discoflux I've never tried it. But I am just glad that someone has. #
  • 23:31 @jojoaedward try not to be crazy and stalkery if you do, or I will block you again permanently, I'm afraid. #
  • 23:33 I know that makes 23 jars, not 21. But 2 jars have been spread thinly on things or used to flavour soups or stews. #
  • 23:34 @bardic_lady NOO!!!!! #
  • 23:36 Have been told that Bovril is now vegan. But per Wikipedia it was only vegan 2004-2006 and is now spreadable cow again. #
  • 23:39 @ReadingItAll looks great, but I think I'm doing a New York festival that weekend... #
  • 23:43 Right. Off to watch The Big Bang Theory with Maddy. I get to explain why science, comics, Jewish things and Star Trek are funny. #tbbtftw #
  • 23:43 @boundlush if they sold #Marmite in Midwestern US supermarkets I would buy it buy the jar, one at a time... #
  • 23:46 @Ima_GKneoos tinyurl.c om/bpe86c #
  • 00:29 @amandapalmer Yes dear. Er, what's the real issue? #
  • 01:40 @fairytalevegas (re: That's rather wonderful. #
  • 01:51 @MRoseRiddle I think it's something to do with @amandapalmer's realising you can't just mock your bloke's savoury spreads #somewhererightnow #
  • 02:44 @PolitelyOffend I'm pretty sure it would work post-Gaiman too, as long as they asked @amandapalmer nicely. #
  • 03:12 @dorkomatic you sure about that? #
  • 03:22 @Frances1900 Hi Frances, of course you did! So glad you saw Amanda live. (I am so lucky.) See you next time I'm in Melbourne? #
