Screamin' 'bout your drugs, money, violence and fellatios
I forgot to mention how much I enjoyed the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy film, which I caught at the theaters last Friday. To be honest, I think the heavily episodic nature of the series -- even within individual books -- lends itself more to a serialized format than a single feature. But that said, I think the folks behind the film did a bang up job capturing Adam's style and humour, despite the many cuts and additions one would expect to accompany the change in medium. It was a bit jumbled in places, and I think the final third would have been confusing to those who had not read the book beforehand, but I'm still quite pleased with how it turned out. I expected a total disaster and was pleasantly disappointed.
In other news, Nothing Nice to Say's Mitch Clem has joined me and the other nutcases at Dayfree Press. And that's a good thing! I love Nothing Nice almost as much as Mitch hates the Family Circus -- which is, in both cases, quite a lot.
