Congratulations, (Wonderful) Neil Gaiman! - Walking on the Edge
I don't really have a plan...
Congratulations, (Wonderful) Neil Gaiman!
Big news of the day: Wonderful Neil has been awarded a Newbery Medal for The Graveyard Book! Many congratulations are in order! You can read all about his excitement over the award here.

In other Neil-related things, he recently posted a new Coraline trailer that really, really makes me want to go see the movie (which appears to be in theaters as of February 6). I haven't yet had a chance to read the book, but the movie looks fantastic! I'll definitely be going to see it after I return from ComicCon.

Check out the trailer here.

Aww! Good for him! I'll have to get my paws on this book, now, I suppose.

I haven't read it yet, but I intend to. :)

I've been looking forward to Coraline for ages, but that's the first preview that makes it look appropriately creepy.

Want to see it together? We never did go ice skating, but it is way too cold out still.

Yes absolutely! If you can manage to wait until either Sunday or maybe the Monday after it comes out? I'll be in NYC on Feb 6, and Feb 7 is my sister's baby shower, so I might be wiped on Sunday. But definitely let's go see it! :)

It's supposed to snow a lot tomorrow, I heard. I still want to do ice skating sometime. :)

Sounds good! Then you can tell me all about NYCC.

By the by, I saw this posted on the DC Universe Online Myspace (I get the RSS feed in my Google Reader):

Exclusive Invite to the DCUO Fan Event at NYCC!

DC Universe™ Online At New York Comic-Con!

.. ..

If you are planning to attend New York Comic-Con (February 6 – 8, 2009.. at the Jacob Javits Center, NYC), come check out the Sony Online Entertainment booth.
You can be one of the first to play our new Doomsday combat adventure in the DC Universe Online! We’ll be there with some of the development team showing the game. Plus, all of our MySpace friends are invited to join us, Jim Lee, and some other special guests at the DCUO Fan Event. The DCUO Fan Event is being held at the Javits Center in a private party room on the panel floor Saturday night (Feb.7) between 6 PM and 8 PM EST – we can give you all the details when you stop by the SOE booth. But we only have room for the first 400 people who show up wearing our exclusive DCUO NYCC 2009 event invite lanyard (1 lanyard per person). To get the event invite lanyard, come to the SOE booth at the show (hint: it is right across from the DC Comics booth), bring us proof that we are your top friend on MySpace, and get one of our exclusive, collectible DCUO lanyards featuring an exclusive DCUO graphic of Lex Luthor while supplies last.
The lanyard is your event invite and is the only sure way to get into the party! And at the party we are giving out even more goodies.
We want to meet you and you can talk with some of the people on the team – they’re pretty cool! Well, OK, you make your own decision…lol!

DC Universe Online Panel – Saturday February 7, 2009 Rm.

By the way, DCUO will be the focus of a panel led by Jim Lee and Geoff Johns along with some of the DCUO team on Saturday February 7, 2009 from 4:15PM – 5:15PM ET in room 1A24.
See you there!

I know you're more of a Marvel girl, but I freaking can't wait for DC Universe Online. I've been following the development of it forever. If they do it right (and I really hope they do), it will be a lot like the MMO I would design if given the chance. If you happen to stop by the booth, even if you don't go to the event, can you take a picture and grab me anything, flyers or whatever, that they have?

(Also, Jim Lee is awesome. I love his art.)

I'll try for whatever I can find... :)

Oh right - you mentioned the baby shower in a past post - are you going to go to NYCC the non-baby shower days?

This is pretty neat. And it's all over SMOFS by now, as well.
foresthouse From: foresthouse Date: February 5th, 2009 02:10 am (UTC) (current file)
Oh, you SMOFS people.

I so need to join. :)
