According to Moonalice legend, the answer to most questions is “42.” Not every question, mind you, but enough to matter. You can imagine the tribe’s surprise when Douglas Adams published “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and declared that “42” is the answer to everything. Perhaps it is, once you get beyond the Earth’s gravity. But here on earth, where Confusionism reigns, some questions have no answer. “Hey! Where’d everybody go?” is an example.
Today is Towel Day, which commemorates the life and writings of the great Mr. Adams. We took the stage, armed with a lovely red towel from the bus, and played a set where every song was connected to the one before and the one after. Some kind of Force emanated from the audience and the ring of majestic oaks that surrounded the stage. No wonder. Today is also Universal Day of the Jedi, and the 31st anniversary of the release of Star Wars. Played our hearts out, we did. Great show, it was.
