The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is a wholly remarkable book. Perhaps the most remarkable, certainly the most succesful book ever to come out of the Great Publishing Corporations of Ursa Minor.More popular than The Celestial Home-Care Omnibus, better-selling than Fifty-Three More Things To Do In Zero Gravity, and more controversial than Oolon Colluphid's trilogy of philisofical blockbusters, Where God Went Wrong, Some Moreof God's Greatest Mistakes, and Who is This God Person, Anyway? It has already surplanted the Encyclopedia Galactica as the standard Repository for all knowledge and wisdom, for two important reasons. One: it is slightly cheaper, and Two: it has the words DON'T PANIC printed in large, friendly letters on its cover.
     The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is, for those of you who aren't familiar with it, a novel by late-Twentieth-Century writer Douglas Adams, the "Father of Comic Science-Fiction." It tells the story of Arthur Dent, a six-foot-tall ape-descendant, who wakes up one morning to hae his planet demolished. It has become a book, a radio show, a 1981 TV series, a movie, comic books, and even a bath towel. It has had five sequals, one of which was written by Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl. And now, I have come up with another of my crazy scemes to become a YouTube-famous animator: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy movie, in LEGO, animated by me, myself, and I in Blender. I have already built many of the characters and scenes, and even animated a seven-second clip which is rendering as we speak. Thoughts?
