Hitchhikers Guide to The Goodies
Well, I decided I couldn't keep having a go at the new Hitchhikers film without actually watching it so that's what I got up to tonight.  I have to say I was mainly impressed.  Obviously it was never going to be perfect but I think they've done a pretty good job.  I was determined to pick faults so to come out of the cinema wanting to go & see it again syas a lot really.  I even like Mos Def's portrayal of Ford - I didn't think there was a chance in hell that would happen as Ford is my fave character but again I was impressed.  Downsides were the lack of beard on Slartibartfast (it doesn't sound much but it's important to me!!), the fact that Trillian was even more irritating than the TV version (yes, it ispossible!!) and Marvin looked very different to how I imagined he should - however I warmed to him immediately (I have a lot in common with Marvin!!) and Alan Rickman can't be faulted (ever!!).  Zaphod wasn't how I wanted him but he did an OK job, I didn't like him at first & couldn't understand him half the time but I warmed to him eventually.  There were some genuine laugh out loud moments though & I recommend you try it.  I thought the intro of the dolphins was very Douglas Adams & I reckon he'd have like it.  The only bit of the film that got a tear in my eye was at the end when it simply said "For Douglas" 
Anyway, I won't keep going on about the film. 
I moved house last week & today is the first chance I've had to get on this site & look at the forums etc, it's taken a while to go through all the messages but it's always worth it.  I should go get some sleep now though, my bloke has gone away for a couple of days & got picked up at 3.30am so I didn't sleep as well as I would like - still, it means I can sit here and sing at the top of my voice without him complaining (& we've moved into a detached bungalow so the neighbours won't complain either!!)  Listening to my usual Launchcast station, a nice random mix i've had tonight.
Anyway, i'm off to bed, nighty night.

well you may never even read this but i was wondering if "nezangel" was due to you having a massive crush on mike nesmith-because if so-i'm with you all the way! .
