Today, we shall celebrate the 61st birthday of a man who gave us so much good stuff. He changed how we all felt about traveling, space, towels, the number 42, and Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Then God saw fit to take him to a higher plain on May 11, 2001.

Douglas Adams was well-known for The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series, the Dirk Gently Series, his work on Monty Python Flying Circus, and also on Dr. Who.

He may be gone, but the awesomeness that was The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy will live on, in several posthumous stories (including And Another Thing, which was written by Eoin Colfer) and through the movie that became The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which was done in 2005.

Thanks for the memories, Mr. Adams, and hopefully, we’ll meet again at The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

(As soon as I find the DVD to Hitchhiker’s Guide, I’ll be reviewing the movie.)
