Liff, the Universe and Everything…

In the proudest tradition of Douglas Adams (“I love deadlines.  I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by”), I’m appropriately late in reminding you that it would have been his 60th birthday on Sunday 11th March.

His death in 2001 at the appallingly early age of 49 robbed the world of a splendid human being, half decent guitarist and astute chronicler of humanity’s many foibles – that he’s not around today to write about a world where Sarah Palin, “The X-Factor” and Microsoft operating systems are taken seriously is probably for the best.

 

Why not remember him at his best with his lecture “Parrots, The Universe and Everything”, hosted for our enjoyment by the modern miracle which is YouTube.
