H2G2 fans...

   Discussion: H2G2 fans...
K-Lyn · 18 years, 5 months ago

I need help. I just got a call from a fellow fan who heard a radio commercial for Land Rovers with mysteriously British voices talking about how how mind-bogglingly big the universe is...

Now, I have not heard it yet (and hope I never do) but I tried to find something online to see if Doug was credited and can find nothing. Now I'm afraid to turn on the radio...

Anyone else heard this?

K-Lyn Back · 18 years, 5 months ago

H...itch H...iker's G...uide to the G...alaxy

HHGG

ohh, i see, two aitches, two gees. i thought it was the "to."

it still seems like a weird abbreviation. (though i know it is the predominant one)

how about HG?

and is exact. More fun with the square root of 2.

Ahem, I am the resident math geek, you are on my turf!

Sorry all that radical two talk made me irrational.


(please don't kill me)
JMD Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
Don't be so negative. I'm positive I didn't see any sine indicating this was your territory. I'm sure that's the root of the problem.
sheryls Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
its integral that we all get along here! you guys are just proof that all math nerds are skewed. It's just plane wrong to fight.
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
Now this thread is going off on such a tangent! Just get to the root of the problem and move on. There's an acute lack of focus around here. Be rational! Maybe we're all just too obtuse.
Mamalissa! Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
This is hardly model behavior, you know. Factoring in your current attitude there's no way I'm going to cosin that loan now!
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
I wish I could differentiate when you were kidding. Thants an integral part of the equation.
Andrea Krause Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
She's only serious a fraction of the time. I've yet to intersect with her at a point in time that she is. Maybe in a parallel universe, who knows! Maybe one where pis r square?
Mamalissa! Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
Hey! I resemble that!

C4ISR. Don't even ask me what it means, but it's in my former branch name.
Birki Bazulious Back · 18 years, 5 months ago

I haven't heard it, but I'm sure there was at least permission given. Who knows? maybe it's an exerpt from the upcoming movie.

For those of you who aren't familiar with the radio series, I was looking over the cast list and was pleased to see that on the cast list are members FROM the original radio series. I have high hopes that this will be an EXCELLENT movie...even if Ford Prefect will be black.

A long long time ago, when I used to dabble on the Hollywood Stock Exchange, I had some stock in the H2G2 movie. I wish I knew my login information so I could see if it was worth anything now. :-P

K-Lyn Back · 18 years, 5 months ago

My mantra since finding out the movie was moving forward has been

Please don't suck...Please don't suck...(repeat)

But I keep reminding myself that it's basis is the most wholly remarkable book ever written so it should do well. I'd have gone for some stock too...

And would someone please tell me that I DO NOT need to bid on the stupid promo towel on ebay?

Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 18 years, 5 months ago

you DO NOT need to bid on the stupid promo towel on ebay.

(better?)

K-Lyn Back · 18 years, 5 months ago
Thank you. I needed that!
sheryls · 18 years, 2 months ago

THE TEASER IS UP.

i so just changed my wallpaper.

and by "changed my wallpaper" i mean "wet my pants."

and..really did change the wallpaper to the marvin one :P

goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 2 months ago
i saw the teaser a few weeks ago. omgsogood.
sheryls Back · 18 years, 2 months ago

i know, but i live under a rock :P

OMG.

Arbie Back · 18 years, 2 months ago

You live under a rock? You were lucky. When I was a lad we'd have killed for a rock. We lived in a box on side of road. We were beaten constantly, got up 2 hours before we went to bed, worked 24 hours a day... Those were the good old days.

The sketch went something like that anyway..

goovie is married! Back · 18 years, 2 months ago
and then...we'd have to lick to road clean...WITH OUR TONGUES!

and when our da came home, he'd KILL US! and DANCE ON OUR GRAVES, singin' HALLELUJIAH!

*cough*

Rocks hadn't been invented when I was a kid.

K-Lyn Back · 18 years, 2 months ago
But Marvin is SOOOOOOO wrong!!!!
sheryls Back · 18 years, 2 months ago
no, he's sooooooooooo depressed :P
K-Lyn Back · 18 years, 2 months ago

Yes, but a depressed tiny bubble of a robot is NOT what was in those books. He was large and silver...

I had always hoped they would get Ben Stein as Marvin's voice.

Bender Back · 18 years, 2 months ago
But major changes were made between all of the versions. It would be an affront to the spirit of the work to keep everything the same.

I wonder how close they stayed to DNA's original design plans for the film.
K-Lyn Back · 18 years, 2 months ago

Well, there were always some differences (John Malkovich's character in the movie will be one such new addition) but I think changing a character from the clear descriptions that were consistant in the radio series, book, illustrated book, etc. is not so cool.

Doug had started the film before he died and they've bene working from his script and notes on his harddrive, etc.
