We went to Toronto yesterday for the premiere of Dave McKean’s film Luna at TIFF. It was much better than the trailer made it look.
McKean was in attendance and he introduced the film a little bit, and gamely answered some audience questions afterward. This was actually the first time I’d ever seen him in person. (I mention this because I used to run a fan website about his work between 1998 and 2007. But I haven’t kept up with his career very well in recent years … I didn’t even know about the Luna screening until the day before. I am a bad fan.)

When you die and go to heaven, everyone who ever lived will be walking around having cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and introducing themselves, and when they say, ‘Oh, what time period are you from?’ and you say, ‘Early-twenty-first-century America,’ everyone will laugh.
