From Paisley to the Vogons

Spotted by the ever-vigilant Emily. If you’re not a fan of Douglas Adams’ The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (and here) then I don’t want to know you ;p But the movie is (finally) due for release at the end of this month – Yippee!! In the meantime, Time-out has been rummaging through the production notebook.. and has found an intriguing link to our own local scene.. it seems that the inspiration for the design of the, newly-imagined, Vogons in the movie included a somewhat unlikely source – step forward Ian Paisley! – he’s the one just below top-centre BTW. *ducks*

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
