Now, if they only had Douglas Adams live up there...

...and I meant his live album, not him alive. Though it'd be cool if he were alive. Really.

OK. Excellent. I really want to know - *how* on earth did you find that?!?!?

Um....just a note....those files are copyrighted....downloading them would technically be illegal - unless you owned the CDs or tapes they came from....

If you really want to honor Adams - go buy the CDs - and support his family who probably misses him even more that we do.

You don't suppose this is an attempt by the RIAA at entrapment? Who is this "crunchland" anyway?

Type douglas adams audio into google and it's the first hit.

The only reason I discovered that just now is because I wanted to find a place to actually buy them.

Would that be the whole "Belgium" bit? If so -and IIRC- DNA never liked it, which is why the UK edition just goes ahead and says "fuck".

Personally, I think DNA's greatest lines are from Last Chance to See, in which he provides two of the greatest descriptions ever of sight ("Fjordland, New Zealand - the type of landscape that makes you burst into spontaneous applause") and sound ("the sound is reminiscent of being thrown into the pit of hell with the London Symphany Orchestra.")

PST: No - that would not be the Belgium bit. I always thought that funny, but certainly not his greatest joke.

I refer to the bit near the beginning which details the plight of one Wowbagger the Infinitely Prolonged, how he came to be so, and his chosen task for the rest of his days: To insult everyone in the universe.

In alphabetical order.

Oh that's a good bit. What an unfortunate omission. I still don't know what a kneebiter is (and no one tell me either: it has a certain mystique right now).
