We're talking about the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, one of my all time favorites that Paolo hasn't read until now. That gave us two very different perspectives: a core fan versus a "normal person" who's just read it. 00:00 Intro 02:11 Podcast update and plans 11:02 Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy 15:56 TV Show and movie 18:24 Douglas Adams 23:38 Hitchhiker's Guide - Impressions 34:16 SPOILERS 57:31 The message behind this book 01:09:00 Elon Musk's comment on the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Links: Douglas Adams: Parrots, the Universe and Everything: https://youtu.be/_ZG8HBuDjgc

Across The Universe With Douglas Adams And Bruce Lee Mani

The Literary City

How many of us stop to consider how much rock music owes to literature? Many of rock or folk lyricists of the 60s and 70s (and into the later years) were very well read. Many were students of English literature.Here are a few examples.Jim Morrison was a published poet. Chris Martin of Coldplay mastered Greek and Latin, Sterling Morrison, a Ph.D. in Medieval Literature, Rivers Cuomo graduated from Harvard University in English, Jeff Schroeder, Ph.D in Comparative Literature at UCLA.A couple of honourable mentions:Brian May of Queen, Ph.D. in Astrophysics,  Art Garfunkel a master’s in Math, Tom Morello of Rage Against The Machine graduated from Harvard in Political Science.And then there were songs inspired by Literature:Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush based on the book by Emily Bronte. Pigs by Pink Floyd was inspired by George Orwell’s 1984 as was Testify by Rage Against The Machine. White Rabbit by Jefferson Airplane was a shout out, obviously, to Alice in Wonderland. Sympathy For The Devil by The Rolling Stones was inspired by Bulgakov’s Master And Margarita and also by Baudelaire’s World by Rosemary Lloyd. Metallica’s For Whom The Bell Tolls is, of course, straight from Ernest Hemingway. And India’s mega band of the 70s, The Human Bondage got its name from the title of a Somerset Maugham book.Sort of puts paid to the whole under-educated, unwashed, drug-taking bad boys of rock. (Well, at least not the under-educated part evidently.)Our guest today on The Literary City is Bruce Lee Mani. He is frontman of the famous Indian rock band, Thermal And A Quarter and he runs the reputable music school Taaqademy.We talk about how his lifelong interest in words and literature shaped his songwriting.The piece of music you hear coming into the segment is Bruce Lee Mani, singing all the vocal parts, a cappella, of his songs, Tomorrow. At the end of the episode, another treat, Bruce performing The Kindness Of Strangers in a songwriter showcase. Here's the links:Tomorrow: https://youtu.be/eWSP-6VeVyI.

Fiction Fans: We Read Books and Other Words Too

Your hosts revisit the classic A Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, and discuss how surprising it can be rereading a book in a different stage of life. Apparently Arthur Dent is only 30? We don’t don’t actually bring that up in the episode but Lilly is pretty sure he was middle aged when she read it in high school. Sara also brings up an atrocious example of tags on AO3 in this week’s Pet Peeve Corner.Thanks to the following musicians for the use of their songs:- Amarià for the use of “Sérénade à Notre Dame de Paris”- Josh Woodward for the use of “Electric Sunrise”Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 4.0 License
