This morning I remembered I had the complete 5-part1 Hitchhiker’s trilogy in audiobook format2. Narrated by Douglas Adams himself. Since I’m a nice guy, I’ll share ‘em. Enjoy:
- Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
- The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
- Life, the Universe, and Everything
- So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
- Mostly Harmless
1 Yeah, that other guy wrote a 6th part, but I didn’t much care for it, so I pretend it never happened. There are only 5 parts in my Hitchhiker’s trilogy.
2 Bookmarked AAC; non-DRM (.m4b). Play with iTunes or an iOS device. Use something like Format Factory to convert if you prefer a different encoding.
You should listen to this series (again). It’s really good. The links are active again, in case you missed ‘em last time around.

National Siblings Day, eh?
Pat revealed on VH1’s 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders of the 80s that the meaning of the song was widely misinterpreted as a positive perspective in regard to the near future. Pat somewhat clarified the meaning by stating that it was, contrary to popular belief, a “grim” outlook. While not saying so directly, he hinted at the idea that the bright future was in fact due to impending nuclear holocaust. [x]
