Just how nerdy are Hitchhiker’s Guide fans?

Check out the Wikiquote entry for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy – it’s broken down by chapters, and comes to around 8,500 words. That’s a lot of quotes. And that’s just from the first book in the Hitchhiker trilogy (of four books), mind you. Clearly, fans take their Hitchhiker quotes seriously. And despite that length, it still didn’t have the quote I was looking for, about Ford Prefect not actually being an out of work actor from Guilford as he usually claimed, but rather being from a small planet in the vicinity of Betelgeuse….

Oh - and hello to Jason Isaacs.

The 400 Blows


is an over-caffeinated and under-employed grad school dropout, aspiring leftwing intellectual and cultural studies academic, cinéaste, and former poet. Raised in San Francisco on classic film, radical politics, burritos and soul music, then set loose upon the world. He spends his time in coffee shops with his laptop and headphones, caffeinating and trying to construct a post-whatever life.


What's in a name... The handle "zerode" is a contraction of Zéro de Conduite, the title of Jean Vigo's 1933 movie masterpiece about schoolboy rebellion.
