Ten minutes of someone reading an interview with Douglas Adams, over a single still image, with zippy jazz playing underneath. It even gets cut off before the end.
The fact that it's still worth listening to is an achievement, I guess.
I don't know maybe if they got two people, doing bad impressions of them or a TV funhouse type interveiw thing would be better.

Yes, this is perhaps one of the biggest wastes of time ever.
It makes atheists look detached, cold, boring, condescending, snobby and irritating.

I think there is no God. Why do so many people who call themselves atheists irritate the fuck out of me?
He just keeps going, with a pile of frighteningly generic and overused atheist arguments. I expected better from Adams. And do we really need to devote a full minute and a half to the difference between believing something and being convinced of it?
I know it's all so passť in the world you guys inhabit, but it's still kind of a hot topic in the rest of the United States. Lame presentation though.

-1 star because the reading is just too smarmy. I like Simon Jones..he's an awesome actor, but someone more detached from Adams' work should have read this. It's one thing to have someone line Jones or Stephen Fry do an audiobook of one of Adams' works, but for biographical stuff, it comes off too pretentious to have a "Hitchhiker" voice doing it.
-2 for pretentious, +1 'cause Douglas Adams is TOTALLY IN HELL RIGHT NOW.
