Towel Day!

Towel Day :: A tribute to Douglas Adams (1952-2001)

Don't Panic! Just join many around the world in celebrating the life and literary art of one hoopy frood, Douglas Adams. I'm sure not everyone fully appreciates the linguistic gymnastics performed by this verbal olympian, but, he is an entertaining writer who plays wildly with his words... which amuses some of us endlessly.

I've been a fan since my harley-riding computer-geek uncle gave me the first of the six books in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy. I've since obtained the books in hardback as well as the original cheesy movie on vhs. I somewhat enjoyed the newer version of the movie, but, it doesn't quite do justice to his written words.

So, grab your towel and show your support for the late Douglas Adams.

So long, and thanks for all the fish. :-)

Thanks for reminding me of Towel Day. See the post for a H2G2 related photo I took today.
