    That's kind of funny. I used to do phone tech support for Sony, and I had customers with famous people names call once or twice.

    A few months ago I was at a wedding. Alan Moore and Elvis were there. It was odd.

    skipping back to the strip: does that make out to be some kind of keith richards of the comic-book world?

    Only famous person I ever spoke to doing tech support was Aretha Franklin.

    and yup, it was really her. She lives locally.

    hehe... Something Postive kicks ass....

    Alan Moore, while a scary and egocentric individual also kicks ass.

    If anyone has a right to an ego, I'd say it's Alan Moore.

    I'd say that scenario and the "factoid" are true events.

    The secret and source of Alan Moore's success is his lunacy.

    Speaking of which: Here's a delightful story I found on the YABS boards about Alan.

    It's funny because it's all completely true.

    Alan Moore is a man of extraordinary intelligence who has little use for the common classifications and cognitive boxes that most people seem to require for making sense of the world. So people who can see his genius but can't let go of those boxes must dismiss him as mad, in order to comfort themselves.

    For a "mad" man he seems to be having a very successful life.

    I am a firm believer in the Divine Madness that drives capital "A" Artists to make great things.

    It's different from Jerking Off In Public Madness or 9/11 Conspiracy Blogger Madness. It's very good.

    Neil Gaiman posted this recently. It's terribly cute.
