Dodgem Logic

Alan Moore has a magazine, Dodgem Logic.

It's up to issue four, so maybe a lot of you had heard of it, but I hadn't. I found out about it because, apparently, Moore was writing an Opera for the guys out of Gorillaz, and they had promised to do a three page thing in his magazine, which they spaced on. Since they didn't have time for him, Moore said he was busy too, and moved on, which is cool. Moore's work ethic is a little on the notorious side, in that once he makes his mind up over a situation, he doesn't appear to go back on it. He refuses to take money for anything that Hollywood takes of his to make a film (and if he did not have other collaborators, one suspects he wouldn't sell the rights to begin with) after he was accused of plagiarism for League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

I like the attitude, personally. Too often--especially in writing--authors put on false fronts, pretend to like people and situations that they don't, or are so low on the totem pole that they fear saying anything negative, for the backlash that they'll get.

Of course, I might just like cantankerous fucks, but the point still stands.
