The embed isn't working, but I firmly believe everyone should watch this twenty minute commencement speech given by Gaiman at the Philadelphia University of the Arts.

I totally don't have 20 minutes for Neil Gaiman.

I have 24 hours for you though, Illuminatus.

But seriously, who is Neil Gaiman? xD

Saw this on his Tumblr. I've never told my co-worker to hush as much as I did when I was listening to this.

It's come to my attention that Vimeo is blocked in some countries, so here is a Youtube version of the speech:

LOL --- I remember the video you sent me of him leaping through fields over a recently won award!

I loves me some Gaiman, thank you OP for sharing this.

@Billy Batson: Its comic doesn't describe anything about the speech. Its simply based off that one line.
