eBay.co.uk: Alan Moore’s League of Ext. Gents. STATUE

Oh. My. God.

Is donating £100 to charity (out of greed) when you don’t have £100 a) still moral b) economically viable.

Also, for those who’ve not read Alan Moore’s Victoriana-fest The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (not the film of the same name or the TV series of a similar name), do so. Moriaty, Gulliver, Nemo, Mina Harker, Mister Hyde, Moreau and the Red Weed, combining with every steampunk reference ever. But it. Immediately. Or borrow my copy, whichever’s easier.

Then you’ll be fit to share my statuary-droolfest.

There are few harder things in life than introducing yourself, especially in print where mellifluous nuance can turn to indulgent wankery. So. I am definitely a 'writer'. You could also call me an 'artist'. I could probably put the words 'designer' and 'consultant' here too, but they feel crass.

  • I don’t know about the morality of it. But I’m drooling too. ~x~

  • But it’s just a statue! How can it be as good as the printness of the print copy…it’s meaningless in comparison?

  • Like Proust’s madeleines, its presence will symbolise and call to mind the memories of those excellent scenes in the book; if, like me, your memory of a thing is often better than the thing itself, then by stimulating the memory you’re improving your enjoyment of it. *And* it’s aesthetically pleasing.
