My bestie's 9 yo is writing a book and creating characters. Plot is "An angel named Angie & a demon named Charlie work together to stop a monster who is a son of the devil" and I said "wow, you are Neil himself" but the joke didn't land cos she's never read @neilhimself
Now trying to decide if it's okay to show #GoodOmens clips to a 9 y.o.

I'll let her dad decide.
Her dad and I are very much this.

Pitfalls of dressing like this as a professor. I sent a paper to the office printer and it was stuck so I went to the copy room and there were 2 students there struggling with the printer and said "oh you must be the IT guy. Could you fix this please?" 😂😂😂
And I did 🙈🙈
There's no one around. Seriously wanna take this printer to a meadow and do this.

Part of Aziraphale's bookshop in 1:12 scale.
@neilhimself @drmuig @michaelsheen thank you for the magical world of Good Omens and for the inspiration! #GoodOmens #Aziraphale #Crowley #miniature
There are several books by @neilhimself and Sir Terry Pratchett here. And the first edition of Good Omens of course!

So, I've reached (atomic no.) 46, which is cool cos it's palladium, Pd - named after the asteroid Pallas, after Pallas, slain by the Greek goddess of wisdom, handicraft & warfare (there's a combo, eh?), Athena.

Shall we have a little palladium thread? Since you insist...

It's a great catalyst & is used in catalytic converters, in cars, which help convert unburned HCs, CO, and NOx-es into carbon dioxide, nitrogen and water. And yes, CO₂ isn't great for the environment, BUT it's not so bad on the ground level. You win some, you lose some.

But it's spendy. More expensive than gold: it costs nearly £2k an ounce (~ £55/gram). It's dense, too (though the least dense of the Pt group metals) so that doesn't get you far. A cm³ of the stuff weighs about 21.5 g & would cost you something like £1200.

There was the noise of something he hadn’t realized he’d been hearing suddenly stopping, and the descending whine of a distant generator. The lights on the panels flickered, and most of them went out.

All over the world, people who had been wrestling with switches found that they switched. Circuit breakers opened. Computers stopped planning World War III and went back to idly scanning the stratosphere.

In bunkers under Novaya Zemlya men found that the fuses they were frantically trying to pull out came away in their hands at last; in bunkers under Wyoming and Nebraska, men in fatigues stopped screaming and waving guns at one another,

Right! The #Discworld #TerryPratchett books without the character of Death are Wee Free Men & Snuff.

Not books you'd normally put together: published 8 years apart, one for younger readers, & one... very much not.

But they have more in common than you might think...

Thread 1/
This is my copy of Wee Free Men. My Nan got it signed. You can tell, because she gave my full name. She was German by birth, didn't suffer fools & had an aptitude for arithmetic. Until Alzheimer's did its nasty little thing. She died in 2015. It was the year for it, it seems.
2/
And that all seems rather apt, doesn't it? Because Wee Free Men is, in part, a story of a girl and her grandmother. So perhaps it's not surprising that I have a fondness for this book.

It's also a story about thinking beyond, about seeing through, and...

Love this from @Riverford

When is consumption not Consumerism?

When it’s Citizenship

#CitizenShift Image
@Riverford thanks for this. I’m on way to do a TED abt the shift from Consumer to Citizen as the story of society. This was right in front of me on the train. #GoodOmens

Cool things to look out for if you’re watching #GoodOmens for the first time... (thread)
Crowley is always on Aziraphale’s left (except in the right-hand-drive Bentley), and if forced out of that position he circles him to get there. Traditionally the “devil” was on/over one’s left shoulder. Latin for left is sinistram, from which we get “sinister”.
Speaking of the Bentley, look out for its number plate... (hint: it’s a Monty Python reference)

Something else that was important to me this year: I reread and watched #GoodOmens. I saw the posters all around Hanover just when I got more and more frustrated with "American Gods" (the series - the book is great), I remembered that I had read the book fifteen years ago without
buying it - it belonged to my then boyfriend. At the time I did not enjoy it overly, I was just busy discovering Terry Pratchett and there books I liked much better. And, being honest, the book is not without its flaws, but when I bought it just after the seminar on Kant's
philosophy of history had ended (it was always from 8 to 10 am), sitting down in some cafe, I got hooked immediately while I listened to Crowley's thoughts about the origin of Good and Evil (the human heart) or about free will, which he and Aziraphale being a demon and an angel,

Abrimos hilo sobre #VFX, donde muestro planos de películas antes y después del trabajo de efectos visuales, y os enseño el proceso por pasos en #GIFs animados. ¿Va?
Empezamos con esta escena de #DoctorStrange. Aquí podéis ver qué es real y qué es digital.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine
Seguimos con #TheMartian. Podéis ver que se rodó en un set bastante completo y que digitalmente se añadieron el paisaje marciano del fondo, los efectos atmosféricos y la corrección de color. Aquí por pasos y capas.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine #VFX #EfectosVisuales #GIFs
Continuamos con varios planos de #AliceInWonderland (2010) de Tim Burton. Como veis en ocasiones hay sets de rodaje, pero en otras lo único que se conserva del plate rodado es a las actrices y poco más.

THREAD: As I’ve become mildly obsessed with #GoodOmens , I’ve been giving some thought as to why.

To begin ... the book. I bought my first copy in 1991. It now looks somewhat tattered and extremely well-loved because it's been read so often.
It's still holding together only because I bought a hardback and another pb to lend. It has been one of my go-to books at times when I need to be reminded that the world is a good place and that there is so much to enjoy in life. Including the writers’ wicked sense of humour.
Then there is the fact that @neilhimself not only wrote the screenplay, but kept close control of the whole process to ensure it was true to what the wonderful #SirTerryPratchett would have wanted.

Y’all I need to talk #GoodOmens Aziraphale’s hands are an ARC. His journey can be seen in the way he positions & moves his hands. Hear me out on this. @michaelsheen is incredible y’all.
Ep1: When Aziraphale is talking to angels his hands are held tightly behind his back for whole scene. It’s like he’s restraining his hands:
When he’s w/ Crowley (who he’s comfortable w/), he moves his hands when he talks A LOT! Big difference:

Here be a (probably) long story of dealing with depression and burnout, of inspiration and lack of it, of seeking validation, of spark of hope in the darkness and of the role of @GoodOmensPrime in everything mentioned. Warning: lame English.
#GoodOmens @neilhimself
Sometimes the Almighty just drops things you need right now without even knowing it right on your head. Somehow I made it almost to 21 year old without any idea of #GoodOmens existing, and when I came across it this winter, I was starting to hate the very fact of my existance.
Not living up to my family's expectations, being totally disappointed in myself, feeling alone and lost in the enormous city of Moscow where I had moved to enroll in university, constant anxiety made me almost lose the ability to feel joy and satisfaction.

I’m gay, and I’ve just left my church of fifteen years to come out. I’ve already left my church job, lost my network, my home, most of my friends, and my family’s understanding. In a really strange time in my life, a little bit apocalyptic, #GoodOmens was a heartstopping watch.
It had all the joy of the book. But what really undid me were the scenes @neilhimself added. My queer friends who saw their loves in Aziraphale and Crowley are yelling happily about the new romantic parts; my book fandom friends are shouting their delight over the new ending.
Love those too. What put me over the edge were a trio of new scenes between Aziraphale and heaven’s angels. I already saw something I needed in him. I was raised in the little world of my church, and watching him standing bewildered on Eden’s Eastern Gate hit home.

Alright folks. Time for a thread.

I want to talk about this scene in #GoodOmens–or, more precisely, what @michaelsheen displayed on his brilliant face here, & how it resonated with me.

I'm just going to break open my chest cavity & lay my heart down for a sec. Hope that's cool.
There's 3 subtle GIFs you need to see. Bear with me.
(From here: azirasphales.tumblr.com/post/185344712…)

Aziraphale says, "There needn’t be a war! We can save everyone!" & he's happy about it, he's hopeful, &–quite crucially–he thinks this is what he is supposed to be saying, as an Angel.
And then Aziraphale is told, "The point is not to avoid the war. The point is to win it,"

When we call something queerbaiting, we're essentially saying: "source material X doesn't count as real or valid queer representation." Here is a thread on why we need to be cognizant about which real-life queer people & stories we're erasing when we expand our use of that term.
First: actual queerbaiting, in which art-creators hint at queer representation in order to attract viewers and then insist their art was 100% hetero all along, sucks a lot. I am not advocating getting rid of the term.
Nor am I saying it's not valid to feel jerked around when a show uses the promise of a specific queer relationship on their publicity circuit, and then doesn't follow through on it in the actual source. (Or follows through only to write out a character, a la #TheMagicians)

In between my comic about asexuality I'm doing little informational one pagers or ancedotal one pagers to break up chapters. I'll share four of them over the next #PrideMonth to spread some education about asexuality, since I've noticed a lot of well meaning ppl are confused!
Did you know romantic attraction and sexual attraction are two seperate things? Understanding the difference is a good way to understand things like #asexual #aromantic and #demisexual along with where you personally fall on this spectrum, and understanding others <3 #PrideMonth
Boop! Here are some of the flags that some people consider to fall under 'Asexuality', and a very brief, basic explanation! :)
