It's been a long week, and I keep waiting for down time to do a proper blog entry in, to catch up. I have photos and everything.
This is just a very short one to say that
1) I'll be on the Jonathan Ross radio show on Radio 2 this morning. In a couple of hours.
2) I'll be on Blue Peter on Tuesday (already filmed, me and Henry Selick on the sofa).
Spent yesterday catching up with old friends. Right now I look wild-haired and bleary-eyed, and I will be extremely pleased when all this is over, as it will be by lunchtime.
Some wonderful articles out there about the Stephin Merritt & Co CORALINE Musical. Like this one: http://www.villagevoice.com/2009-05-06/theater/stephin-merritt-and-david-greenspan-conjure-an-unusual-tuner-for-coraline/1 (in which I think Stephin misestimates whether or not children will like it. They will, it's about imagining.) And this one, just as good, with David Greenspan.
(Edit to add, the Lortel is a very small theatre, because Stephin wanted this unmiked and acoustic; tickets are going very fast, between the Magnetic Fields fans, the Coraline fans, and the theatre fans, and it's a very limited season. If you put off getting tickets and then find you can't get them not even for ready money, do not send me grumpy emails.)
And here's me in the Guardian doing their Celebrity Squares: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2009/may/08/neil-gaiman
And the front desk just called up to say that Mitch Benn is now downstairs so I am signing off in haste.
