Nozart Releases Story Driven Single “Orphanage”

Nozart is back and this time they are sharing with our listeners their single “Orphanage”.  For fans of songs that are story based, which Logan and I are,  “Orphanage” is made for you.  The opening to this single itself feels like you are opening a book and getting ready to read a story.  The simple rhythm and instruments give this single a fairy tale aspect.  The vocals come through nice and clear and add to the story quality.  It is a slower song, but the quality overcomes that.  We are choosing to show the music video for “Orphanage” from Nozart’s YouTube channel.  One because it is an animated video and we love animation here and two the animation for the music video makes it feel like you are reading a Neil Gaiman story made by Tim Burton.  Props to Noah Kellman on a finely done song and music video.  Here’s Nozart’s “Orphanage” music video – Richard:

American Gods Trailer

From Neil Gaiman’s Best Seller Starz is doing a television series adaptation of American Gods.  I remember reading this when it came out and loved it.  It will definitely have a mature rating so you can understand why it went to a channel like Starz.  Here’s the first look trailer of American Gods from Starz YouTube channel:

Neil Gaiman’s Troll Bridge

American Gods to Small Screen?


It looks like American Gods by Neil Gaiman might make it to the small screen.  Starz has ordered a first season through Freemantle Media.  Neil Gaiman will be the executive producer while Bryan Fuller and Michael Green will be writing and adapting the novel for the series.  If this is as good as the novel was, I’ll be checking it out.

Gaiman’s Doctor

Calling all Doctor Who fans and those who might not be.  Neil Gaiman has written an episode of this season’s Doctor Who series.  It will air Satuday, May 14, for all those lucky enough to have BBC America in their homes.  This will be a great cross promotional tool for librarians for patrons that either don’t like Doctor Who or Neil Gaiman’s work but love one of the two.  It could produce new watchers of Doctor Who or new readers of Neil Gaiman’s works.

Gaiman making a Journey to the West

Librarians will know the name Neil Giaman from his novels and young adult novels.  However, comic book fans also know him for his writing skills in the comic book medium, most notably from Sandman published through DC Comic Vertigo imprint.  Giaman has been signed on to adapt the Ming Dynasty classic novel Journey to the West into a screenplay.

The film is to be shot in China, but will have an English dialogue with Western and Chinese actors.  Many of your library’s manga and anime fans will recognize this title since it has been adapted into both mediums.  The most popular versions are Dragon Ball and Saiyuki.  Therefore, the library will already have patrons interested in this film when it becomes available.  Link below to ICv2 for the full article.
