The Darkness - I Believe In A Thing Called Love
This video reminds me of the book tremendously. One reason is because the video takes place in space on a spaceship. Where most of the book takes place. Also the video does not much to do with the actual song, just as the book does not make much sense at times.

Text to self connection.

"looked out over a broad spread of west country farm land".

My uncle in England lives in the country farm land and every morning waking up to the sunrise and seeing the beautiful green hills.

Favorite quotes.

1) "And then, one Thursday, nearly two thousand years after one man had been nailed to a tree for saying how great it would be to be nice to people for a change" (page 2).

This is one of my favorite quotes because it appears in the opening pages of the book and sets the humor, which tends to be my sort of humor.


2) ""I'm game" he said, "well see who rust first" " (page 7). I also enjoyed this quote because it reminds me of my stubborn self, and again, its my kind of humor.

My Favorite Character.

Ford Prefect. Again reminds me of myself with his humor. He keeps the book interesting and keeps my laughing. He reminds me of a mixture between Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean with a hint of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
