Alan Moore was most likely invited to TAM London thanks of his excellent, thought-provoking and funny talk at 9 Lessons and Carols for Godless People back in December. He spoke about his snake god. Again, I'm very much looking forward to his talk.
Hey, Elton John played Rush Limbaugh's wedding. Who knew?
I love Moore's work though he's such an iconoclast I wonder if I'd like him personally? Probably wouldn't matter - by the time I finished geeking out he'd have written me off as a complete nut-job.
Apparently Dave Gibbon listened to our Cthulhu episode of MonsterTalk and I had a complete Real Ultimate Power
moment complete with wind blowing and wailing of guitars.
I think, in all seriousness, bringing in people who aren't part of the "regular" skeptic lecture circuit is thought provoking and will drive some amazing conversations.
It may also be exciting for Aubrey De Gray (if he's there) to get so many geeks running up to ask for his autograph.
