HAPPY TOWEL DAY!!!
Towel day is celebrated every year on the 25th of May in celebration of the life and works of author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). Douglas Adams was the genius behind The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy series as well as the two novels which made up the Dirk Gentley’s Holistic Detective Agency series which comprised the Salmon of Doubt and The Long Dark Tea-Time Of The Soul.
As if these accomplishments weren’t enough to warrant an international holiday, Douglas Adams also served as a writer and later script editor on my favourite television show, Doctor Who, Writing the Fourth Doctor serials, The Pirate Planet, The City Of Death and Shada, with Adam’s proposed film Doctor Who and The Krikkitmen being released as a novel posthumously later this year.
Douglas Adams created many worlds and races that spoke to the imagination of peoples all over the globe, he shone lights on the absurdities of life the universe and everything, he was a modern day philosopher, whose works show that even if we were given the meaning of life on a plate, we still wouldn’t have a clue what that meaning actually was. His works will endure for centuries as hallmarks of both science fiction and social commentary.
Now grab your towel and don’t panic.
