159. Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman
This is a great favourite of mine.
Took forever to track down at Chapters though, because I was searching for a very particular publication format and cover illustration.
Not iambic… do not accept…
These tags I’ll pop, and boast in rhyming verse
that what I wear puts swagger in my gait;
though twenty shillings have I in my purse,
my self-esteem and manhood both inflate
when lofty furs I purchase for a cent.
Thy grandpa’s clothes are worthy salvage, though
they smell a trifle musty. Still, I spent
much less to dress myself from head to toe.
To save or not to save? The question’s moot.
I’ll never give my coin to high-street crooks.
These dusty shelves will yield their hidden loot
to those, like me, more frugal in their looks.
Like ancient coins washed up on distant shores,
I’ll find my treasures in these thrifty stores.
- Macklemore, “Thrift Shoppe”
Started this a while ago and just quickly finished up before I lost inspiration, but YOOOOO this show is SOOO good! In my top 3 for sure! WOW! All the fan art gahh I have so many ideas!
That character that makes you say
from the bottom of your soul.
158. Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
Even when it’s just a matter of words, spiders freak me out, okay? There was one scene in here that made me squeamish, I remember.
