Words move, music moves
Only in time; but that which is only living
Can only die.
-T.S. Eliot

Neal Stephenson, Neil Armstrong and Neil Gaiman

One of these things is not like the other… (it’s especially awesome ‘cos each of the three is the correct answer, depending on what you’re comparing)

Somebody I follow here on Tumblr posted this a while back.  I can’t rightly remember who it was (nor can I find it anywhere on my dash), but I have since listened to the album “Asleep in the Back” by this band (called Elbow) and it is fantastic.

Thank you, mystery person (whom I strongly suspect is actually Wil Wheaton), for turning me on to this band.

Neil Gaiman: Another Important Question of the Day Answered

neil-gaiman:

Mr. Gaiman, I am having a very hard time deciding between two books, both from Barnes and noble’s classics collection. One is your own, “American Gods”, and the other is the collection of Ernest Hemingway. Seeing as, to the best of my knowledge, only one of you two fine gentlemen is currently…

And this is why I love Neil Gaiman. That, and his writing is wonderful.

A new vending machine has been released which can print any book within minutes.

The Espresso Book Machine has access to 500,000 different books - the same as 23.6 miles of shelf space - and can even churn out a fresh copy of Crime and Punishment in just nine minutes.

Pages are printed at a rate of over 100 per minute and are then pressed, glued and cut to produce a pristine book.

Users simply pick the book they would like on a screen and wait for it to be printed … it certainly is a novel way of getting a new book.

WHO WANTS TO ROAD TRIP WITH ME TO THIS VENDING MACHINE Y/Y? 

I think Johannes Gutenberg’s mind would turn to mush and come out of his ears and eyes if he ever saw this.

Yes.  A million times yes.
