Cohen showed for objects was primary. The artist's constructions reflected his collecting, said his dealer, Allan Stone. If he had been the curator of a folk-art museum, it would have had some collection. Cohen's collection is to be offered at two antiques fairs.

Arthur objects to this "What? Frankie says:. Well, I mean, yes idealism, yes the dignity of pure research, yes, the pursuit of truth in all its forms; but there comes a point, I'm afraid, where you begin to suspect that if there's any real truth it's that the entire multi-dimensional infinity of the Universe is almost certainly being run by a bunch of maniacs ; and if it comes to a choice between spending another ten million years finding that out and on the other hand just taking the money and running, I for one could do with the exercise.
In the movie The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy , they are in fact the manifestations of Lunkwill and Fook, the pan-dimensional beings who designed and built Deep Thought, and were killed by Arthur Dent when they attempted to remove his brain.
They appeared in Fit the Fourth of the radio series. Frat Gadz wrote the handbook titled Heavily Modified Face Flannels , which is described by The Guide as "an altogether terser work for masochists" in Fit the Eighth of the radio series.
In Fit the Eighth of the radio series the Frogstar Prisoner Relations Officer referred to in the scripts as the "FPRO" does his best to annoy Zaphod by hosing him down, letting him think that he escaped to an Ursa Minor robot disco by body debit card, asking him for an autograph and teleporting away whilst Zaphod helps him with his respiratory problem — that he is breathing. Halfrunt describes Beeblebrox as "Just this guy, you know?
His reason is that if the ultimate question is revealed, everybody would be happy and psychiatrists would be put out of business. In the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and Fit the Ninth of the radio series, when he learns of two escaped Earth people Arthur and Trillian , he orders the Vogons to attack the Heart of Gold, at around the same time that Arthur unwittingly sabotages the ship's computers by asking them to make a cup of tea.
In both these versions he only appears briefly. In the novel Mostly Harmless , Gail Andrews is an astrologer who is interviewed by Tricia McMillan about the impact that the discovery of the planet Persephone, or Rupert will have on astrology. She is an advisor to the President of the United States, President Hudson, but denies having recommended the bombing of Damascus. In the radio series, she appears in Fit the Twenty-Third of the radio series, and is voiced by Lorelei King.
Gargravarr , the disembodied mind and custodian of the Total Perspective Vortex on Frogstar World B "the most totally evil place in the galaxy" , suffers from real-life dualism and is therefore having trial separation with his body, which has taken his forename Pizpot.
The dispute arose over whether sex is better than fishing or not, a disastrous attempt at combining the two activities, and his body going out partying too late. Since he has no physical form that can be seen, he leads those condemned to the Total Perspective Vortex by humming various morose tunes so that the condemned can follow the sound of his voice. Gargravarr was voiced on radio by Valentine Dyall.
He appears in Fit the Eighth of the radio series. He is professionally unfazed by Arthur, Ford, Zaphod, and Trillian's unruly arrival. He has a fine sales patter and a very dry sense of humour. In the radio series Garkbit is played by Anthony Sharp , and appears in Fit the Fifth of the radio series.
In the television series, he is portrayed by Jack May and appears in episode 5 of the TV series. The book describes Garkbit as being a methane breather, with a life support system strapped discreetly to his thigh.
The short story also appears in some editions of The Salmon of Doubt. He shares this discovery and some Ol' Janx Spirit with a working girl who has "a Master's degree in Social Economics and can be very convincing". Engrossed in his own writing, she leaves Ford and leaves with a client in a steel grey Han Dold limousine.
Ford later overhears her saying "It's OK, honey, it's really OK, you got to learn to feel good about it. Look at the way the whole economy is structured It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. Majikthise worries about philosophers sitting up half the night arguing that there may or may not be a God if Deep Thought can give His phone number the next morning.
Gaia, Thor, and Cthulhu are among the deities interviewed by Hillman Hunter for the job of God of the Earth-refugee planet of Nano, with Thor being selected.
An enterprising chap who addressed the problem of elevators refusing to operate because they had been afforded a degree of prescience to facilitate their operation by allowing them to be waiting for you before you've even decided you want to go up or down a floor but consequently became terrified of the future, and so taken to hiding in basements. Mincefriend became very wealthy when he patented and successfully marketed a device he had seen in a history book: the staircase.
The Golgafrinchans first appear in Fit the Sixth of the radio series. In the novel series, their appearances are all in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe and they appear in episode 6 of the TV series. In all formats, the story is essentially the same. Following their adventures at Milliways, Arthur and Ford teleport onto an "Ark Ship" containing a number of Golgafrinchans.
This particular group consists of the Wodehousian  "middle class" who have common, middle-management types of occupations. They were sent away from their planet under false pretences by the upper class "thinkers" and working class "doers" of their society, who deemed them useless. They were told that the entire society had to move to a new planet, with a variety of thin excuses, and that it was necessary for them to go first to prepare the new planet for their occupation.
However, it turns out that one of the middle-men was necessary for survival, and as a result, the rest of the Golgafrinchan society died off see below. They arrive on Earth, where they become the ancestors of modern humans, except in the novel Life, The Universe, and Everything , in which in the beginning it is mentioned that they ended up dying out instead of the cavemen.
Agda and Mella are Golgafrinchan girls that Arthur and Ford hit on. On Golgafrincham , Agda used to be a junior personnel officer and Mella an art director. Agda is taller and slimmer and Mella shorter and round-faced.
Mella and Arthur become a couple, as do Agda and Ford. In a way Mella is very relieved because she has been saved from a life of looking at moodily lit tubes of toothpaste. Agda dies a few weeks later from a chain of events that Ford unknowingly starts by throwing the Scrabble letter Q into a privet bush: it startles a rabbit, which runs away and is eaten by a fox, who chokes on the rabbit and dies, contaminating a stream that Agda drinks from upon which she falls ill—it is said that the only moral that one could possibly learn from these occurrences is not to throw the letter Q into a privet bush.
Agda and Mella only appear in the novel. The Captain of the Golgafrinchan Ark Fleet Ship B likes to bathe with his rubber duck he spent practically the entire time he was captain of the B Ark and as much of his time on Earth, a total time of over three years, as has been documented in the bath and has got a very relaxed attitude towards everything.
The Captain also has a fondness for a drink called "jynnan tonnyx". His personality was based on Douglas Adams' habit of taking extraordinarily long baths as a method of procrastination to avoid writing. On television, it was Aubrey Morris. These rock throwing poets can be seen in the Guide graphics in episode 6 of the TV series , heard about in the radio series The Primary Phase and read about in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe.
They are original inhabitants of Golgafrincham , one of whose descendants inspire the stories that caused the creation of the "'B' Ark" that Arthur and Ford find themselves on.
The first part of their songs tell of how five princes with four horses from the City of Vassilian travel widely in distant lands, and the latter — and longer — part of the songs is about which of them is going to walk back. One of the Golgafrinchans on the prehistoric Earth, the hairdresser was put in charge of the fire development sub-committee. They gave him a couple of sticks to rub together, but he made them into a pair of scissors in the radio series, or curling tongs in the television and book series.
The Golgafrinchans' management consultant tried to arrange the meetings of the colonization committee along the lines of a traditional committee structure, complete with a chair and an agenda. He was also in charge of fiscal policy, and decided to adopt the leaf as legal tender, making everyone immensely rich.
In order to solve the inflation problem this caused, he planned a major deforestation campaign to effectively revalue the leaf by burning down all the forests. Another Golgafrinchan on prehistoric Earth, the marketing girl assisted the hairdresser's fire development sub-committee in researching what consumers want from fire and how they relate to it and if they want it fitted nasally.
She also tried to invent the wheel, but had a little difficulty deciding what colour it should be. She was played by Beth Porter both in the radio series and on television and by Leueen Willoughby in the LP album adaptation. He is not very smart, having difficulty tying up his shoelaces, but is regarded by the captain as a nice chap.
His only function to appear in the series is to offer Ford and Arthur drinks. On television, the character was renamed Number Three and played by Geoffrey Beevers.
He belongs to the Golgafrinchan 3rd Regiment. He captures Arthur and Ford and interrogates them. When they land on Earth, Number Two declares a war on another, uninhabited continent, leaving an "open-ended ultimatum", blows up some trees which he claims are "potential military installations," and 'interrogates' a gazelle. He likes shouting a lot, and thinks the Captain is an idiot.
By tragic coincidence, after all the telephone sanitizers were sent away with the rest of the "useless" Golgafrinchans, the rest of the society died off from an infectious disease contracted from an "unexpectedly dirty" telephone.
In the scripts for Fit the Fourth of the radio series, the first programmer asks Deep Thought if it is not "a greater analyst than the Googleplex Starthinker in the Seventh Galaxy of Light and Ingenuity which can calculate the trajectory of every single dust particle throughout a five-week Aldebaran sand blizzard? Note the much later use but same spelling of Googleplex for the Google corporate headquarters, another homage to the number googolplex.
The creator of the universe, according to the Jatravartid people of Viltvodle VI. Their legend has it that the universe was sneezed out of the nose of the Great Green Arkleseizure, and they thus "live in perpetual fear of the time they call 'The Coming of the Great White Handkerchief.
A great computer, which according to Deep Thought, can "talk all four legs off an Arcturian Megadonkey" although Deep Thought could allegedly persuade said Megadonkey to go for a walk afterwards , from Fit the Fourth of the radio series. Grunthos the Flatulent was the poetmaster of the Azgoths of Kria, writers of the second worst poetry in the universe, just between Paula Nancy Millstone Jennings and the Vogons.
The guide recites a tale of how, during a reading of his poem "Ode to a Small Lump of Green Putty I Found in My Armpit One Midsummer Morning", "four of the audience died of internal hemorrhaging and the president of the Mid-Galactic Arts Nobbling Council survived only by gnawing one of his own legs off.
Reportedly "disappointed" by the reception of his poem, Grunthos then prepared to read his book epic, My Favourite Bathtime Gurgles or Zen and the Art of Going to the Lavatory in episode 2 of the TV series.
He was prevented from doing so when his small intestine leapt up his neck and throttled his brain in a desperate bid to save civilization, killing him. In the fifth novel, the Guide Mark II is used by the Vogons to help them destroy all the many Earths that appear in the novels.
By using reverse temporal engineering throughout the book, the Guide Mark II — which takes on the appearance of a bird with Unfiltered perception — cajoles the cast to their final destination at Club Beta on Earth to first re-meet Agrajag and then be destroyed by the Vogons.
Flexible and imaginative, Hactar was the first computer whose individual components reflected the pattern of the whole. Hactar is assembled and programmed by the Silastic Armourfiends, who then order him to assemble an "Ultimate Weapon. Deciding that he could find no circumstance where such a bomb would be justified, Hactar builds a small defect into it. After discovering the defect, the Armourfiends pulverize Hactar.
Rather than being destroyed, Hactar is merely crippled. He can still manipulate matter, but even a simple item takes millennia to manufacture. Deciding that the decision not to destroy the universe was not his to make, he uses his influence to make them build their first space ship and discover the universe; he then manipulates them into the same rage which the Armourfiends possessed, urging that they destroy all other life; Hactar has reassembled the supernova bomb, this time in working condition.
After an incredibly long and bloody galactic war, Judiciary Pag banishes Krikkit to an envelope of "Slo-Time" to be released after the rest of the universe ends. At the end of the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , after his scheme fails, Hactar slips the cricket-ball-shaped supernova bomb to Arthur Dent, who then accidentally saves the Universe again by being an abysmal cricket bowler.
He is played on radio first by Geoffrey McGivern , in a flashback for which McGivern is not credited during Fit the Seventeenth of the radio series. He is then voiced by Leslie Phillips , appearing again in Fit the Eighteenth of the radio series. The Underfleet Commander reports directly to the Haggunenon Admiral.
But as it had a pre-set return course, it resumed its place at the front of about a hundred thousand horribly be-weaponed black battle cruisers. The Haggunenons were written out of subsequent versions, as they were originally co-written with John Lloyd , although they did appear in some stage adaptations. Haggunenons are greatly inconvenienced by their genetic instability and so have vowed to wage terrible war against all "filthy, rotten, stinking, same-lings.
Keeper of the gate into Asgard. Hig Hurtenflurst "only happens to be" the risingest young executive in the Dolmansaxlil Shoe Corporation. During Fit the Eleventh of the radio series, he is on Brontitall. What he is doing there is something of a mystery, as the Shoe Event Horizon was reached long ago and the survivors of the famine have long since evolved into bird people and set up home inside a fifteen-mile high statue of Arthur Dent. His foot-warriors capture Arthur Dent and three Lintilla clones, who are threatened by Hurtenflurst to be "revoked.
He then proceeds to show them a film about the activities of the Dolmansaxlil Shoe Corporation, which is interrupted by Marvin, who has cut the power in order to rescue Arthur and the Lintillas. He appeared in Fit the Eleventh of the radio series played by Marc Smith. He has not appeared in any versions after this. Hillman Hunter is an Irish property developer from Earth who has been tricked by Zaphod into moving to a planet created by Magrathea.
He interviews various gods, as he is keen to employ Thor to keep the society he has created on the planet devoutly controlled. He acts as a "stereotype Paddy from a bygone era" using phrases such as Bejaysus and invoking leprechauns. He is a major character in the novel And Another Thing He has considerable problems with the Tyromancers from an alternative reality who have also settled on the planet.
Like Ford Prefect , whose name derived from the Ford Prefect automobile, Hillman Hunter's name derives from an automobile sold in the United Kingdom in the s.
Hotblack Desiato is the guitar keyboard player of the plutonium rock group Disaster Area , claimed to be the loudest band in the universe, and in fact the loudest sound of any kind, anywhere. So loud is this band that the audience usually listens from the safe distance of thirty seven miles away in a well-built concrete bunker. Disaster Area's lavish performances went so far as to crash a space ship into the sun to create a solar flare.
Pink Floyd 's lavish stage shows were the inspiration for Disaster Area. In the book he is described as being connected to a "death support system" and communicates only by supernatural means. At the time when the main characters meet him, in the novel The Restaurant at the End of the Universe , Hotblack is spending a year dead " for tax reasons ".
The character is named after an estate agency based in Islington , with branches throughout North London. Apparently, the firm later received phone calls telling them they had a nerve naming their company after Adams's character.
It replaces the Haggunenon material from Fit the Sixth of the radio series. The character appears in episode 5 of the TV series , and his ship in episode 6 of the TV series. He does not have any lines due to being technically dead , and is played by Barry Frank Warren. Humma Kavula is a semi-insane missionary living amongst the Jatravartid people of Viltvodle VI, and a former space pirate. It was presumably during his time as a pirate that he lost his legs and had them replaced with telescoping mechanical spider appendages.
He wears thick glasses, which make his eyes appear normal when worn; however, when he removes the glasses, he appears to have shrunken black pits where his eyes should be. He seems to be a religious leader on that planet, preaching about the Coming of the Great White Handkerchief. Hence, his sermons end with the words "Bless You" rather than "Amen" as all the Jatravartids sneeze stimultaneously at the end of a 'prayer'.
See Jatravartids. He also ran against Zaphod Beeblebrox in the campaign for President of the Galaxy with the campaign slogan "Don't Vote For Stupid," but lost, and has remained bitter about it ever since.
In the film he is seeking the point-of-view gun to further his religion's acceptance presumably , and he takes one of Zaphod's two heads and one of his three arms though we do not see this, but Zaphod says while attempting to avoid the thermonuclear missiles above Magrathea "I can't do this without my third arm" hostage to ensure his help.
While the Jatravartids were mentioned in the books, the character of Humma Kavula was created by Adams for the movie The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.
Quoting Robbie Stamp: "All the substantive new ideas in the movie, Humma, the Point of View Gun and the "paddle slapping sequence" on Vogsphere are brand new Douglas ideas written especially for the movie by him. Hurling Frootmig is said to be the founding editor of the Hitchhiker's Guide, who "established its fundamental principles of honesty and idealism, and went bust. He is mentioned in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything.
It was Judiciary Pag's idea that the people of Krikkit be permanently sealed in a Slo-Time envelope, and the seal could only be broken by bringing a special Key to the Lock.
When the rest of the universe had ended, the seal would be broken and Krikkit could continue a solitary existence in the universe. This judgement seemed to please everybody except the people of Krikkit themselves, but the only alternative was to face annihilation. They also share the initials Z. Since the Beeblebrox family lives backwards in time, Pag despite living in the distant past is therefore one of Zaphod's descendants.
He is played on radio by Rupert Degas , and appears in Fit the Fifteenth of the radio series. He is German with a Greek mother, and was handed the running of the club by his brother Stavro Mueller, who renamed Club Alpha with his own name. He appears in the novel Mostly Harmless , in the storyline regarding the final death of Agrajag.
A dog belonging to advertiser Will Smithers which was so stupid that it was incapable of eating the right dog food on camera, even when engine oil was poured on the wrong food. It was so named because its hair stuck upright on its head in a way that resembled Ronald Reagan. It also had an adverse reaction whenever someone said the word " commies ". Ford, Arthur, Trillian and Slartibartfast meet a group of murderous Krikkiters on the surface of their planet. Away from the influence of Hactar, they are troubled by their Elders wanting to destroy the Universe as they are keen to have sporting links with the rest of the Galaxy.
They appear in the novel Life, the Universe and Everything and the Tertiary Phase of the radio series. They're described as being white, but that's nearly all the indication of their appearance in the book series, but the cover of the CD version of the Tertiary Phase features a drawing of the robots, one of them batting a Cricket ball.
On the image, they look rather like Marvin from the movie, only with longer legs, and smaller heads, including sunglasses-like eyes and antennae, like a play on their name. Kwaltz is one of the Vogons on Vogsphere , directing Jeltz's Vogon Constructor Fleet during the demolition of Earth and enforcing the galaxy's bureaucracy.
He is the partner and advisor of vice-president Questular Rontok , who seems to care more about winning Zaphod's affections than retrieving the Heart of Gold. Kwaltz also leads a team of a few hundred Vogons to capture the president's kidnapper in the penultimate scene of the movie, a chase which takes them to Magrathea , where they discover and capture Marvin the Paranoid Android not shown , then to Earth Mark II, where they shoot up Arthur Dent 's house, and are finally defeated by Marvin who gives them all a lethargic and depressed nature, at least for the moment, by use of the Point-of-view gun which, oddly enough, works on non-organic life forms.
Lady Cynthia Fitzmelton is described in the original radio script as "a sort of Margaret Thatcher , Penelope Keith character. She only appears in Fit the First of the radio series, where she was voiced by Jo Kendall. Her "very splendid and worthwhile" lines were entirely dropped from later versions. The Lajestic Vantrashell of Lob is a small man with a strange hat who guards God's Final Message to His Creation, and who sells Arthur and Fenchurch a ticket to it before passing them on a scooter and imploring them to "keep to the left".
Introduced by Prak in the epilogue to the novel Life, the Universe and Everything , he finally appears towards the end of the novel So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish when we also realize that he has been a regular visitor to Wonko The Sane, who describes angels with golden beards and green wings, Dr Scholl sandals, who eat nachos and do a lot of coke.
He says that he runs a concession stand by the message and when Wonko says "I don't know what that means" he says "no, you don't". Lallafa was an ancient poet who lived in the forests of the Long Lands of Effa. His home inspired him to write a poetic opus known as The Songs of the Long Land on pages made of dried habra leaves.
His poems were discovered years after Lallafa's death, and news of them quickly spread. For centuries, the poems gave inspiration and illumination to many who would otherwise be much more unhappy, and for this they are usually considered around the Galaxy to be the greatest poetic works in existence. This is remarkable because Lallafa wrote his poems without the aid of education or correction fluid. The latter fact attracted the attention of some correction fluid manufacturers from the Mancunian nebula.
The manufacturers worked out that if they could get Lallafa to use their fluids in a variety of leafy colours in the course of his work, their companies would be as successful as the poems themselves.
They therefore traveled back in time and persuaded him -- in the book, by explaining the situation, with difficulty; in the radio adaptation, by beating him -- to go along with their plan. The plan succeeded and Lallafa became extremely rich, but spent so much time on chat shows that he never got around to actually writing The Songs.
This was solved by each week, in the past, giving Lallafa a copy of his poems, from the present, and having him write his poems again for the first time, but on the condition that he make the odd mistake and use the correction fluid.
Some argued the poems were now worthless, and set out to stop this sort of thing with the Campaign for Real Time a play on Campaign for Real Ale , or CamTim, to keep the flow of history untampered by time travel.
