And the most important thing for intergalactic travel is, of course, a towel. Just make sure you soak an end in nutrients in case of an emergency.
Douglas Adams' "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" is being made into a MOVIE!!! (the screenplay having been written by Adams himself before he so rudely kicked the bucket)
And they casted the perfect people for Arthur Dent, Trillian, and ESPECIALLY Zaphod (except that the actor only has one head -- I assume they'll digitalize that little defect) but Ford Prefect is black! That is so not the middle-aged, business-suit-wearing, white guy I had imagined -- but I think that will make it even funnier.
OH I can't WAIT to see this movie!!!!!!!!!! 2005... a long time to wait. I'm gonna be following these trailers 'n' such!
