Neverwhere is certainly of my favorite books. Neil Gaiman may very well be my favorite author. The thing I love about his writing style is that the pictures in my head become extremely well formed. I see the characters and locations clearly when reading his books, which leads me to want to see them in cinematic form.  Probably my visions of what could be as a film, would be smashed and ruined forever if the books actually became films. I can't speak for Stardust I haven't read the book. Sometimes I run across people or places and I say "Ah Ha!" that would be perfect for_______. I had one of those realizations today. There is much talk on fan boards who would play who and what not for Neverwhere. There is a character in the book Angel Islington, who is very androgynous. Which really an angel should be right? Many have said that Tilda Swinton would make a good Islington but for me I wanted a bit more masculinity and I don't think her voice would do either. I've decided the best person to play the Angel Islington is Brian Molko from the band Placebo.


See perfect! 
Here's my current video obsession and now I really want to see Daybreakers 

I also got the Placebo's album "Battle for the Sun" from the library and I really like it. I realized Placebo has been around for a long time. I've been listening to them since I was in high school!
