10:11 pm - "Come one and all, man and mammal..."
I got a text message a moment ago from tromatized saying, "If I could have just one wish, I would like a tasty fish."

I immediately replied with "If we could just change one thing, we would all have learnt to sing!"

Anyone who recognizes those lyrics without looking them up gets eight points, but you also lose fifteen points for bein' a geek, you geek.

In other news, I think ribsinbacon has been watching too many spy movies. Every time he goes into his own room, he knocks three times and says "Linda!" Then he opens the door and says "no, I wasn't followed."

Oh, and (as long as I'm babbling) I think you should read the most recent Too Much Coffee Man. And then I think you should read TMCM on a regular basis, because it's freakin' great.

the 200(5/6?) film version of HHGTTG was not as good as the radio serial, or the television miniseries, or the book. That song however is one of the high points :)

While I agree, I do think I liked the movie more than you did. I know a lot of people felt that it betrayed the source material, but having paid a lot of attention to Douglas Adams' attempts to make the movie during the decade before his death, I think it's safe to say that this is the movie he was trying to make. Much as I love the other versions, they don't exactly appeal to the mainstream, and I don't think a verbatim adaptation would have found success in 2005/6. Of course, my personal favorite version is the radio series. It contains some of my favorite Hitchhiker's material, and much of it never made its way into the books.

Note I did not say that I disliked the movie, just that I do not count is AS good as the other sources... I agree with you on the radio serial.

I know, I know. But I feel the need to defend the movie because so many of my friends hated it so much.

If for another +10, -20 geek points you'll know why the icon next to my comment title is relevant to this post.
