Oh no, not again

“Curiously enough, the only thing that went through the mind of the bowl of petunias as it fell was Oh no, not again. Many people have speculated that if we knew exactly why the bowl of petunias had thought that we would know a lot more about the nature of the Universe than we do now.”

If this means nothing to you, then you’ll probably not get what this vignette by Stefan Schindler (Brainbikerider) is all about.

The Sperm Whale and the bowl of Petunias

If you don’t get it, I suggest you get your sorry behind to the bookshop (or log on to your favourite on-line bookseller) and finally get yourself your own copy of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. What kind of nerd are you?! Seriously. Be ashamed.

I often try to find things to blog by people who haven’t had their MOCs featured on TBB before, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to pass up the opportunity to blog a model dedicated to one of my favourite books. I love the simple but very effective way in which the scene suggests motion by having stripes in the background and it could be just me, but I think the sperm whale actually looks a bit surprised.

    @ Shmails, ONE of? :P

    I know it’s a small detail, but they got the landscape wrong, Magrathea is gray and barren :P

    THHGTTG is my bible, and this detail didn’t pass my watchful gaze :3

    Okay, two in a row with mountains in the distance. Now my head is doing a mashup.
