What Alan Moore is actually like.

So what I find interesting is that it's so obviously unlike Alan Moore in many ways - there's nothing about him whatsoever that can be described as manic, and yet there's a lot of odd little details in there that they've obviously picked up from somewhere.

Song about Alan Moore by MJ Hibbett. Better warn you that it's pretty damn catchy.

The hat appears to be from when he got married.

They missed Moore's actual scruffiness level by about tenfold.

Oh, and a mate of mine is featured on the Wired blog with for an Alan Moore themed Poster/Desktop wallpaper he did. Which leaves me wondering if they know quite how rude that top righthand panel is when it's not in sepia.

Artw's links are the post. I did enjoy Sr. Reyes' zeal, however.

Reminded me of the Hilarious House of Frankenstein.

la hora chanante has great moments, it's a pity so much is lost in translation. The gist is the manchegan accent and idioms spoken by a foreign character, see Bono

Where's Socko Glycon?

Can someone provide a context for this show? Why exactly would they have a parody of a figure that I'm guessing only other comic geeks would know what he looked/sounded like? Or, what?

That being said, the Stewart Lee interview is great.

Also Actual Alan Moore has one of the Top Ten Best UK accents. Somewhere inbetween early 20th century village and the water mines of mars.

The Whelk, this is a Spanish show called 'La Hora Chanante', it has a cult following for being absurd, mostly unfunny but sometimes awesome. It tried entering the mainstream with no success.

A recurring sketch is 'Celebrities' where Joaquin Reyes impersonates a celebrity in pretty much the same style everytime: ridiculously self-absorbed, country accent. So it's not funny because it's a good impersonation, it's funny because it's famous people saying stupid things in a funny accent.

Okay then!

I find stuff like this amusing in that Moore basically speaks in my local accent but with a bit more of a Brummie twang as he's further to the west

I blame Dr. Who and Avengers episodes for making the Regional UK Accent = THE FUTURE connection in my head.

Aha. So it's basically like Bo Selecta?

i think you're onto something there, artw. you can actually compare; no subs though

Heh, I thought it was actually Alan Moore, just with a freshly-washed beard.

Oh lordy... more Spanish Alan Moore.

Are they riffing on 'Unbreakable'?

Yes, I spotted several references - might be more that I missed since it's a while since I saw the film
