There was a request on shwatchalongs for some icons from "The Six Napoleons" so I started playing with the GIMP... and I didn't stop for a little bit. Have some icons!

The guideslash comm (conveniently named for its association with The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams as well as slash and femmeslash fanfiction, fanart, and icons) has been sadly quiet as of late. Since it seems to be something that would (maybe, just maybe) fall under this comm's interests, I thought I'd spread the word that new content would be spectacularly welcome.

There's also an index for fic and art posted in 2003 through 2008, if you'd like to read through -- there's a lot of content there, put up by any number of talented people.

So, Hitchhiker slash fans, grab your towel and your electronic thumb and come on over!

Hey guys! I'm selling a near complete Douglas Adams book lot on ebay. It includes the Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Don't Panic: The Official Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Companion, The Salmon of Doubt, Starship Titanic, and the two Dirk Gently books. Here's a link to the auction. It ends in two days.

Thank you for your time!

Is anyone coming to the big Hitchhiker party at the Royal Festival Hall this weekend?

You can get 2 for 1 tickets here if you fancy it. I'm so excited I could squeak. :D

Arthur Dent's towel [18 Jun 2009|04:05pm]

I could swear that it's mentioned somewhere, but I can't seem to find it... What does Arthur's towel look like? Is it described in the book? Or am I thinking of the 80s tv series where Ford grabs Arthur a towel to put his head on while the Vogon ship is traveling through hyperspace? I need to know, but don't have time to re-read the whole book (or "trilogy," if it's not in the first one) right now. :/

Quick question [09 Dec 2008|10:17am]

Does anybody remember what Arthur's BBC job was? I can't seem to find that it was mentioned, or evidence that it wasn't.

towel day +4 [29 May 2008|10:00pm]

 I was at a meeting today at work and I was making the point that our college should have 57 honors students.

I was driving home the point by saying "57 is an important number."

After a pause, I added, "not as important as 42, however."

The computer scientist and librarian laughed.  

The provost and finance director looked very confused.

i guess this is a good day for a newb to introduce herself [25 May 2008|03:28pm]

*cut*Collapse )

Hello :) I'm new to this community as well as to the H2G2 fandom - I've finished reading the first part of the trilogy about two weeks ago (and lent it to a friend immediately after; I believe another newb can be expected here in a short while).

Anyway - happy Towel Day (as well as Jedi Day/Nerd Day/anniversary of the Ankh-Morpork revolution, and/or whatever you're celebrating today), everyone!

Need help tracking down a reference... [04 Feb 2008|03:10pm]

[ mood | restless ]

(Please forgive the duplicate post from hhgttg)

I need help tracking down a reference for a presentation I have to give in a class tomorrow.

I seem to recall a small essay or statement either written by, or in a book about, Douglas Adams. It was a response to the observation that Arthur Dent seemed like something of a depressing character, stating that he was actually the perfect British hero because he struggles through adversity, lives through what should be absolutely mind-blowingly traumatic experiences, and endures.

Unfortunately, I can't cite it (or even make sure I'm not misstating it) if I can't find it.

Any idea what book it was from?

could it be any more perfect? [21 Jan 2008|12:02am]

[ mood | amused ]

Yesterday bought a jersey of FC Porto, my favourite soccer club, and seeing that you can put "your name" and any number you choose on it, I did this...

...and now I have the most perfect soccer jersey in the world!

i need help regarding a date (of the non-romantic type) [28 Aug 2007|12:33am]

whilst recently going through one of my hard drives which i havn't really looked at for years, i discovered the books in audio-book format as read/narrated by Douglas Adams himself.

the thing i'm curious about is that i cant seem to work out which year they were recorded. i've checked the file-tags and they reveal nothing and i've tried to Google around but have had no luck there either.

the only clue i have is that they were issued by a company called Dove Audio but in terms of the tape or LP covers i have no clue.

if anyone could help enlighten me or point me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, thanks.
