Why the Flaming Lips in particular?, have heard of them but don't know their music.
Have you seen the movie 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy'? It is excellent and tries hard to recreate the feeling of the original series. I couldn't really remember the love interest in the series and then figured out that she must have been kidnapped for most of the time, hence perhaps Arthur Dents reason for travelling all over the universe in the first place, to look for her (and find his way home). In the movie, she is kidnapped in one scene and rescued in the next. Hard to fit an entire series in one movie but all the favourites were there, Ford Prefect, Trillion, Marvin the depressed robot (played by Alan Rickman, a connection to Mike and TB), the brilliant genius white mice, Zaphod Beeblebrox, the sperm whale, Slartibartfast, and of course those very attractive Vogons!!
Gosh George, you must be running out of pocket money by now?!
I hate getting up early. I didn't even realise there were two 6 o'clocks in one day!
