They let us in half an hour before showtime and I got a seat in the 4th row, behind the row of Reserved seating. The event was sold out, with an overflow room with a video feed set up. Check out my view:
He talked about how he loved myths. How myths were like compost - they start out as a belief and become history and then just stories that turn to dust, only to be built upon and fuel new ideas.
He talked about lots of other stuff, then brought it back to myths.
He was as funny and witty as you'd expect.
He even read us a new story from a secret project.
His voice is truly hypnotic. I think I may need to get every audiobook he's done for his own books to listen to him read them.
Oh, and his wife, Amanda Palmer, sat in the seat directly in front of me just before Neil came out. :)
