So long and thanks...for all the fish

I never did get around to watching the new* Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy film, for a number of reasons. Martin Freeman irritates me beyond measure, for a start, and I read bad reviews about how they'd edited all the good lines just enough to make them crap, and frankly I don't think I could deal with finding Marvin sexy. However, it's just come to my attention that this lapse in geekiness means I've also missed the UTTERLY FABULOUS Neil Hannon song over the end credits. Thank heavens for Spotify, that's what I say.

And here's a video of a puppet miming along to it.



I can't believe someone's made a Lost fanvid to it. Ha. (Spoilers only up to season two, I think, but I'm not 100% on that!)

* Four years old. Eek.

You didn't know this!?

I *think* I have the song on iTunes. I know I have My Lovely Horse!

I missed it completely! I do have My Lovely Horse, though, and now I have this too :)

Yes, the new HHGttG film was deeply flawed, however I have to say there were elements I really enjoyed. Whenever the film had the balls to go into fresh territory and make its own jokes, it worked. There are bits here and there that are explosively funny. Sadly, there aren't enough of them to make up for the sad mess that is the rest of the film.

It's worth a rental, though.

Opening credits ISTR.

It has some good bits.

Lots of "They didn't understand what they were doing" bits too though.

I've still not seen it either. I think if it was on somewhere I was, I'd probably watch it, but I'm not planning to make the effort to see it.
