Nope. 

have they read the scene in American Gods where the guy gets swallowed by the vagina?

that’s fiction.

I always used to dislike drawing architecture. Is it just that I wasn’t making it up on the fly that was unappealing?

I’d been fascinated with Rand since I’d written a story in the New York Times magazine about a competitive championship tournament bridge player who was also an active objectivist and Rand devotee. I had read half of Atlas Shrugged before I got the gist of my role. I really enjoyed the book because of its absurdly reductive philosophy that inadvertently plays on adolescent male narcissism like a jazz saxophone — to draw a connection to the famous Randian saxophonist and economist Alan Greenspan — but it also spoke directly to the adolescent male fantasy of “I’m the only smart one. Everyone is leeching off of me and I’d rather destroy my work than compromise my integrity by being nice to others.” Her moral severity came as a tonic to my cultural relativist upbringing.

An ice bucket challenge. Mine. In a novelty bowtie. On the beach. With Death…

Neil Gaiman donates to ALS, does the ice bucket challenge without wasting water, and gets naked because his wife didn’t.

Well, yes. But I’m not going to mention those things just to get people to watch it. Oh, wait…
