We didn’t know that. Yeah. We’re always late to the show. Well, a belated congratulations to show-off Amanda and Neil “The Pretty Tim Burton” Gaiman. Say, speaking of pronunciation, we’ve never bothered learning how to pronounce Neil’s last name. So, give us a few minutes and we’ll go find out somewhere on the World Wide Interweb.
OK, got it. For those of you also in the out-of-the-know, it’s “/ˈɡeɪmən/” with emphasis on the first syllable. If you’ve forgotten your pronunciation tables like we have, we’ll help you out: “GAY-mun.” The name is Polish in origin. And now you know.
So anyway, “Amanda and Neil sitting on a log, scribing and chanting in a misty fog. First comes horror, then comes pain, then comes an amulet on a chain. Finger it, worship it, mark it with a “z” and soon there’ll be stories for gerds like me.” Hey, it’s the first image and music that came to mind when we closed our eyes and thought of that blessed/cursed union. Don’t judge us!
Eh. That’s pretty much it. We’re going over to Youtube now to watch some footage from Amanda’s latest catalog.
