Not My President: 45 is Not Zaphod Beeblebrox

S20ZDou

Special Addendum Number 1.0- Regarding the comparison of the 45th President of the United States of America to Galactic President and Worst Dressed Sentient Being in the Known Universe, Zaphod Beeblebrox:

While it is known to the editors that it is easy to think “they voted in an idiot,” and draw

His hair came from a distant planet

Trump’s hair before harvest

comparison the current Cheeto in Chief and the Big Z, Galactic Hitchhikers would like to point out that Zaphod Beeblebrox has at least a few likeable qualities.  Although Trump’s hair may be a semi- sentient creature from a distant world, only Earth can produce an asshole like him.

Zaphod is just this guy, you know? Beeblebrox is, as we know, an adventurer, ex-hippy, good timer (crook? quite possibly), manic self-publicist, terrible bad at personal relationships, and is often thought to be completely out to lunch. Donald Trump has never been an adventurer, ex-hippy, or a good timer. Yes Zaphod is an idiot of a Galactic President, but his actions never come from malice, rather they start an end in plain stupidity, often in ego, and always with ten out of ten points for style.

imagesThis Trump fellow on the other hand has as much sex appeal as a road accident. Not actually evil but he is bad-tempered, bureaucratic, officious and callous. Draining the swamp by overfilling it with greasier corporate elements which displace the even the greasiest paid for partisan politicians of Washington DC. He wouldn’t even lift a finger to save his own grandmother from the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal without orders – signed in triplicate by the Kremlin, sent in, called fake news, sent back, queried, lost, found, denied, accused of being Hillary Clinton’s emails, subjected to public inquiry, lost again, and finally buried in soft peat for three months and recycled as firelighters. The best firelighters, everyone tells him so.

Despite having a self-professed big brain and his claims to have all the best words, Donald’s speeches and public appearances are more often than not far worse than even b88the poetry of Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings; only having appeal to slug like creatures whom wave their firearms in the air and have no large intestines to reach up and throttle their brains. His approach to providing health care to the citizens of the country he leads is to repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with all out nuclear war. Less people to cover does equate to more affordable providence of care, it is supposed.  If the great nation of Canada was smart they would help Mexico build the wall Donny wants so badly, and then build their own wall between the US and themselves as it will help keep out the inevitable hordes of US citizens seeking to escape America as refugees.

Donald J Trump is a Vogon, and not even a very good one.  His father got him deferments from having to take Bureaucracy classes, and he failed all his other subjects, nuXExDWbut he is a Vogon nevertheless.

Let’s give the Big Z a break guys.  We are all so very tired of winning, but signing for the destruction of Earth is nothing compared to the Tangerine Menace disassembling all that is good about it and selling it off to the highest bidder. “Love and Kisses” to make way for a hyperspace bypass would be an act of compassion in contrast to divide and conquer. Stealing a starship is a lot less concerning to us than stealing the integrity of the office of the Presidency of the United States. At least Zaphod offered to show his spaceship to the girl, rather than grabbing her right by the……you know where we are going with this.

Remember, we only have just under three and a half more years to endure.  Meanwhile, we should not allow ourselves to be divided. We cannot fall for the callousness and hate. Find something to do for the unity of all those living on this planet we share. Stay vigilant, stay hoopy, RESIST, and most of all:

Zaphod Speaks! Galactic Hitchhikers Interview Mark Wing-Davey

Zaphod Speaks! Galactic Hitchhikers Interview Mark Wing-Davey
by Anthony S Burdge

Greetings Hoopy Froods!

It is with great pleasure that I introduce to you all our faithful froods the 1st in a new Galactic Hitchhiker’s feature: Hoopy Frood Interviews!
The idea for this feature began in March 2016 as I was formulating content ideas for You and 42: A Douglas Adams Fan Anthology. I felt it would be great to get something in the book direct from folks involved in HG2G productions. I wrote to Mark Wing-Davey aka Zaphod Beeblebrox and received a very nice reply from him and his assistant. For those who may or may not know Mark Wing-Davey is the Chairperson, and Arts Professor, of Graduate Acting at NYU Tisch School of the Arts (Read up on his career here) In 2015 I wrote to him to see if we could meet up for Towel Day and to buy him a pint, but our schedules didn’t allow it. Since then Mark and his assistant have been kind enough to write with concern to new productions such as “The Double Man.”  I wrote of The Double Man on a past incarnation of the Galactic Hitchhikers website, but unfortunately the article was lost due to the server switch.
In correspondence with Mark we arranged an interview with him, which I would then transcribe into a cohesive narrative for You and 42. We met with Mark via Skype where the interview was recorded. It is just about an hour long and has lots of great material about Mark’s career, time working on the Hg2g radio and television series, thoughts on Douglas Adams and much more!

CLICK ON THE PLAY BUTTON BELOW to hear the interview in its entirety. Unfortunately Jared had a few microphone issues on his end so he had to ask Mark his questions via Skype text chat. This means you will hear a bit of dead air and then Mark answering the question, or Zaxley and I asking the question for Jared.

Mark Wing-Davey CHAIRPERSON; ARTS PROFESSOR NYU TISCH SCHOOL OF THE ARTS


Interview Conducted July 2016 with GH Founder Zaxley Nash, Audio Engineer Jared McLaughlin, and GH Writer/Field Researcher Anthony S Burdge

We had such as great time chatting with Mark and are humbled, honored, and grateful to have had the opportunity to do so. The discussion was alot of fun, full of laughs and very informative.
Thank you Mark for your time and the chance to speak with you!

In discussion with Galactic Hitchhiker’s Founder Zaxley Nash, our Sub-Etha Channel 42 Engineer Jared McLaughlin and myself, we felt this was something we wanted to continue and be a GH feature. Our next interview to be posted soon was with Kevin Jon Davies who has had a long fan and professional career associated with The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Davies worked on graphics for the television series, interviewed Douglas Adams on numerous occasions, is a highly regarded documentarian, for example “The Making of ‘The Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’ which used archive footage and new specially shot material. The forthcoming interview with Kevin, we speak with him about his career, which shall also be transcribed for You and 42.
We are honored to have Kevin as a part of our Galactic Hitchhikers Facebook Community, which can be found here
Click here to read more of Kevin’s career from his bio on the website for Lazlar Lyricon 3  Plus I reviewed his book The Illustrated Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
Additionally we interviewed author Keith DeCandido, which shall be added to our featured interview section soon!

We now have 3 interviews in the can and are currently working toward additional shows.  We hope you enjoy these interviews and look forward to your thoughts.
