Mostly harmless…

We tried to see Hitchhikers last night in Emeryville with the effervescent and lovely Cola. We got to the theater early, got the best seats, but half way through the Star Wars preview the lights went on and the fire alarm started sounding. We were ordered out of the theater. When let in a few minutes later (a false alarm, duh) we of course had lost our seats. There was a long line of others who had lost their seats waiting to get refunds. So we left, went home and pouted.
I know I’m the last person on the planet to see it, but we watched Napoleon Dynamite instead. Seemed like a cross between Square Pegs, Welcome to the Dollhouse, and Ghost World. Took a long time to figure out what decade they were in. Still not sure because of all the purposely anachronistic references. But refreshing, none the less.
SO. We woke up early this morning and headed to the city to attempt to see Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy AGAIN. This time at the Sony Metreon. Where we could geek out on the rest of the surroundings before and after the movie. The film was good in its own right, but lacked the sparkle and verve of the BBC radio recordings, books & tv series. I loved Stephen Fry’s narration, he sounds very close to the original (though this is not a prerequisite) and I enjoyed the Marvin/Arthur Dent cameos from the TV series.
After the movie, and a spin at the Portal One arcade, we didn’t feel like going home yet so we headed to Japan Town for books & sashimi & soba.

  1. You know, I found someone on ebay that copied that image by Clamp, wrote the words “Dolly” over the XXX (you could still see the X’s under it), and used it as their own image to promote their ebay store.
    I felt like reporting them, but I’ve gone through the process of trying to report someone and it’s long and tedious -_- It just urked my nerves to see someone using copyright violation on ebay like that, espically with such a popular art form.
