(not really) skeptical fish

talking about the skeptical view of the universe, i was looking to post something along the lines of Terry Pratchett's "In the beginning, there was nothing, which exploded..." or the similar quote from Good Omens, or perhaps the animated Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy clip about the creation of the universe (which you can find here but i can't link to directly)...but instead i give you this clip from the same film.

who are we?

why do we exist?

you fishies ponder that whilst i run off to make even more lists of things to bring to Bonnaroo.

7 little fish:

Just finished reading Anansi Boys to my wife. Oddly enough I don't think she's ever read any Gaiman for herself, I have read all of them to her. I am thinking, since she hasn't been exposed to the joy that is Good Omens and since I haven't re-read it since purchasing the new hardback edition that I need to read that one to her next.

sock! a ridiculous journey indeed!

mysfit! i love you too!

prmod! it was! so cool!

carl v! good omens rocks!
okay, that's enough exclamations, but seriously, i just reread it for the first time in awhile (gave away every paperback copy i've had, & hadn't picked up the new one i bought to be signed because i was enjoying its pristine condition for awhile...) & it really is smashing.

on the way back from tennessee we listened to a terry pratchett audiobook for awhile & i was pleased at how well it translated to being read aloud.
but it must be done in a british accent. so good luck with that.
