HHGTTG / H2G2 - The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is one of my all time favourite science fiction films/books. Marvin is a Paranoid Android aboard the starship Heart of Gold. The film is based on a book by Douglas Adams.

 

I Love this toy I tried to recreate Marvins depression, frustration and boredom in the shot.

Don't panic and carry a towel

Douglas Adams: "A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have.... Ein Handtuch ist so ungefähr das Nützlichste, was der interstellare Anhalter besitzen kann....."

and not to forget: “The Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is...42!” (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis)

Part of: "ego - self portrait selfie autoportrait Selbstporträt" mit Rückgrat // Towel day 25. 5. 2017: Per Anhalter durch die Galaxis: eine Art Himmelfahrt, nicht die des Christus. In der Früh Handtuch aussuchen für diesen Tag. Wahl viel auf dieses, weils an das Zitat: "Viele kamen allmählich zu der Überzeugung,

einen großen Fehler gemacht zu haben,

als sie von den Bäumen heruntergekommen waren.

Und einige sagten,

schon die Bäume seien ein Holzweg gewesen,

die Ozeane hätte man niemals verlassen dürfen." erinnert. Überlegungen wie ich es tragen könnte. Die Idee auf die ich kam zeigt das Foto. Farblich abgestimmte Kleidung ausgesucht: grün blaue Scarpa Schuhe, blue jeans, grünes langarm T-Shirt - alles Ton in Ton mit dem Handtuch. Zu Mittag essen bei den Eltern. Nachmittags Herumspielen mit dem Photo und Spiegelungen siehe Kommentar. Schauen welche passenden Videos auf youtube vorhanden sind. Das Planetarium im Prater begeht den Handtuchtag. Astronomie nicht Astrologie. Am Abend das Handtuch als Eintrittskarte ins Planetarium: "Die Geheimnisse des Südhimmels" Paranal Observatorium Atacama Chile, Europäische Südsternwarte (ESO), Very Large Telescope (VLT): Sternennebel, schwarze Materie, rote Riesen, schwarze Zwerge, ein Urknall,.... Sternbilder nicht Sternzeichen, sky not heaven. Dokumentationen über dieses derzeit größte Observatorium:

"Die Europäische Südsternwarte in Chile ESO/HARPS" (youtube 26min53)

"Die Augen des Atacama Teleskops" (youtube 51min29) // Esoterik Entlarvung Astrologie. Numerologie 42 // Kreativität ist keine Phase // handtuch kein Fetisch

Today is Towel Day.

 

Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honour. The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after Adams' death on May 11, 2001.

 

A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. Partly it has great practical value. You can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta; you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapors; you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon; use it to sail a miniraft down the slow heavy River Moth; wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat; wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes or avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (such a mind-boggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you); you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal, and of course dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

Greetings from a Hitchhiker!

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish (1984) - Chapter 26

 

In a mute embrace, they drifted up till they were swimming among the misty wraiths of moisture that you can see feathering around the wings of an airplane but can never feel because you are sitting warm inside the stuffy airplane and looking through the little scratchy Plexiglas window while somebody else's son tries patiently to pour warm milk into your shirt.

TRP - Towel day

 

I love The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. It is one of my most favourite books. Douglas Adams was a genuis, I hope he didn't forget to take the towel with him to the eternity ;)

 

BTW our wedding date is 10.10.10, because this binary translates to decimal as a number 42. How nerdy are we? ;)

Day28 Year3 of Project 365

I dressed up as Arthur Dent, went into the middle of nowhere (well, just outside of Reykjavík) and photographed myself – with great help from Ósk.

 

I probably wouldn't have done this if not for a photo challenge, on www.ljosmyndakeppni.is/challengeresults.php?challengeid=330, with a Towel Day theme.

 

This turned out to be my second highest scoring competition photo, with an average vote of 6.005, and the first time I get a ribbon as it made third place.

Well today has been a beautiful day out, but I definitely could do without all of the cicadas flying around..blech..I think they are gross. They are rampant this year, here in this part of NC and it is all you hear around here is the constant humming of them during the day. It isn't like the pretty sound that crickets make..it is a sound that gets irritating after awhile, lol. :D Anyway, here is my addition to today's FGR challenge of Towel Day. I have never seen or read Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy, so I am not too sure if this keeps with the theme..but I hope it does. it is my favorite beach towel, because it has Betty Boop on it. My husband bought it for me at Universal Studios in Florida, when we all went on vacation there a few years ago now. We had just gotten off of this ride that we rode more than once that was like a white water rapids type of ride..it was awesome. :D

At my parents farm - about as different a landscape as the one I left in Canada as you could imagine. Flat and empty and nothing as far as the eye can see.

 

I thought I'd go out and try and get a silhouette photo on the road, but the pup decided to come too, and it all ended up being a game of chase the towel, bite the towel, and hold on to the towel for as long as possible.

 

For TRP - Towel Day!

 

Explored! #45

if you live in Club Marazul - you need to ask for it in Spanish: "Sin cabeza y sin pie" Translation: no head; no feet. Oh , and Gracias.

 

Club Marazul was a Club Hotel for French Tourists on the Island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands. There was a tiny grocery in the building that was serviced by Canarians who spoke Spanish and French. Sadly, I only spoke English. I lived here for about a year and one of my neighbors finally helped me to purchase one of the gorgeous looking chickens they had at the butcher - but I had no cleaver, so I never thought I could purchase one. It was one of those moments that I learned "ask and ye shall receive".

 

The club towel has been with me since 1984.

 

FGR - Towel Day

Today is the widely appreciated and well known International Towel Day. From Wikipedia:

Towel Day is celebrated every May 25 as a tribute by fans of the late author Douglas Adams. On this day, fans carry a towel with them to demonstrate their love for the books and the author. The commemoration was first held in 2001, two weeks after Adams' death on May 11, 2001. The towel is a reference to Adams's popular science fiction comedy series The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

 

So, did you carry a towel with you today?

O Dia da Toalha é celebrado no dia 25 de Maio como uma

homenagem dos fãs ao autor da série O Guia do Mochileiro

das Galáxias, Douglas Adams.

 

A saga de cinco livros conta a história de Arthur Dent e seus amigos

em aventuras pela galáxia e pelo tempo. Um detalhe importante da

história é a importância da toalha para os "viajantes da galáxia",

a qual seria útil para as mais variadas e inimagináveis situações.

 

A data é lembrada pelos fãs que carregam uma toalha durante do

dia inteiro com eles. Alguns usam como uma capa, outros como um

turbante, enfim cada um usa a toalha como deseja, desde que esteja

consigo a toalha.

Day 139

 

Here's my Towel Day 2010 photo number two in my attempt to make up for being lazy and not posting the last 3 days.

 

Also, I'd like to point out my not-so-grey hair.... I finally got around to dying it today. Which I have been meaning to do for quite some time.... as my hair is really starting to go grey now. I've had grey hair for a while... but more recently it's become more plentiful. So I grabbed a box from Publix and gave myself some nice color. It's not perfect... but it also was only about 4 bucks, instead of the crazy hundred plus it costs to get it done at the salon. =)

 

Happy Towel Day!

 

Setup/info:

 

Same light as the Day 138 photo:

2 flashes:

1AB800 @ 1/16 power at camera right and above her with 20degree grid mostly to help with hair definition.

1AB800 directly in front @ 1/4 power with giant softbox, even in height to me and about 7 feet away or so.

Triggered with PWplusII.

...and thanks for all the fish

 

No edit (save the black bands)

...So long, and thanks for all the grass !!!

 

Porte ta serviette sur toi toute la journée, peu importe où tu vas.

Day 138

 

Happy Towel Day!

 

I've been bad again... and got a little lazy the last few days.... so I figured to make it up, today I'd post 3 photos. And since today is Towel Day, all 3 utilize towels.

 

I think this one is my favorite.

 

What do you think?

  

Setup/info:

 

Makayla is perched up on a bar stool. Her "dress" is a white sheet pinned with large clamps behind her back there.

A towel is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.
