Please Share and Enjoy [15 Aug 2010|02:14pm]

The guideslash comm (conveniently named for its association with The Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy series by Douglas Adams as well as slash and femmeslash fanfiction, fanart, and icons) has been sadly quiet as of late. Since it seems to be something that would (maybe, just maybe) fall under this comm's interests, I thought I'd spread the word that new content would be spectacularly welcome.

There's also an index for fic and art posted in 2003 through 2008, if you'd like to read through -- there's a lot of content there, put up by any number of talented people.

So, Hitchhiker slash fans, grab your towel and your electronic thumb and come on over!

a panic-reducing wallpaper [28 Apr 2008|11:42pm]

So I found this poster for the good ole 2005 Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy film, and desperately wanted a wallpaper version. So I gave it flying-nun-eqsue wings of navy on either side and stuck it on my desktop... but alas! The poster's colours were a little dull, and the portrait thing wasn't kind of working in a widescreen sense... so I hit the revamp button:

The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy


My original post.

ETA: Sorry everyone, I obviously linked it wrong, it's all working fine now!

ETA 2: I lie. Photobucket is pulling some ridiculous stunt... I can't use thumbnail or direct links, they always direct me to the 320px thumb, so It's now linked to my Deviant Art post, click download on the left for full res.

Time is an illusion; Newbies doubleyso. [05 Feb 2008|09:13pm]

[ mood | optimistic ]

Ello ello Hitchhiker fans. I'm Piratehatter and I'm stalking over here from Guideslash. That place is so dead it makes me cry T^T

That being said, I've been a HGttG for... well... not long (compared to you guys >.>). Maybe 8 months? I don't know. But... I'm mostly a slash fan and that, I'm sure will be present. Is that ok? Slash? Slashiness? Slashitude?

If not, I can live. Well maybe. Anyway, I hurd you guyz liek artz? 

Well that's just a sample. I have more at my DeviantArt site specifically devoted to Hitchhiker's Guide. That's updated... semi-often. And I've recently taken up a challenge: HGttG25, as it were. So that's more motivation.

One last thing before I stop buzzing around: Are fanfics allowed here? Slash fanfics? Mature slash fanfics? Just wondering.

Need help tracking down a reference... [04 Feb 2008|01:39pm]

[ mood | confused ]

I need help tracking down a reference for a presentation I have to give in a class tomorrow.

I seem to recall a small essay or statement either written by, or in a book about, Douglas Adams. It was a response to the observation that Arthur Dent seemed like something of a depressing character, stating that he was actually the perfect British hero because he struggles through adversity, lives through what should be absolutely mind-blowingly traumatic experiences, and endures.

Unfortunately, I can't cite it (or even make sure I'm not misstating it) if I can't find it.

Any idea what book it was from?

i need help regarding a date (of the non-romantic type) [28 Aug 2007|12:26am]

whilst recently going through one of my hard drives which i havn't really looked at for years, i discovered the books in audio-book format as read/narrated by Douglas Adams himself.

the thing i'm curious about is that i cant seem to work out which year they were recorded. i've checked the file-tags and they reveal nothing and i've tried to Google around but have had no luck there either.

the only clue i have is that they were issued by a company called Dove Audio but in terms of the tape or LP covers i have no clue.

if anyone could help enlighten me or point me in the right direction i would greatly appreciate it, thanks.

Dirk [17 Jul 2007|11:09am]

So, come on, then. We're Douglas Adams fans, allegedly, so who's heard about Dirk Gently's new radio series? I for one am looking forward to this, it might breathe at least a little life into an otherwise almost totally dead fandom. [BBC Press Office]

"Do you know where your towel is?"

"Yes", says Vicki, "It's upon my head preventing me from seeing dangers a la peril sunglasses."

And got this off my friend's LJ: it's a poem by Paul Neil Milne Johnstone, on whom Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings was based:

Audiobooks [27 Feb 2007|05:05pm]

I just finished listening to Life, the Universe and Everything on my iPod for probably the twelfth time and I was wondering if anyone else on here was just madly in love with the audiobook versions of our favourite work of fiction to ever come out of the great publishing centers of Earth Mach I (Mach II, perhaps).

Just a query out of curiosity. Which do you prefer, reading the books or listening to the illustrious Mr. Adams read them to you?
