The BBC2 Interview

Thanks to a fellow denizen of New Babbage, young master Loki Elliot, the Beowulf segment of this past Saturday's The Culture Show (BBC2) is now up on YouTube. Not bad, all in all. But this is twice now I've been called a "cult author," and I have to admit there's something peculiarly damning in that appellation. But I'm happy with how my bit of this came out, and watching it, my thought was, gods, I've become the stuff of science fiction. And I do love that the RL photo shown of "me" before the Second Life portion begins is a photo of me as Nar'eth. Also, I rather like what Tom Paulin has to say.

I will admit that Ray Winstone comes off rather poorly, what with all the rambling on about "the first superhero" (I always fancied that would be Gilgamesh) and admitting he's never actually read Beowulf, which he refers to as "the books" (making me wonder if he thinks J.R.R. Tolkien is somehow in back of this whole thing).

Anyway, without further ado, the clip:
