The Edited Guide contains riches even the hard-core fan may not know about.
The Video-Lover's Guide to the Edited Guide
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy was famous for its illustrative videos. Which makes it annoying that most of the time, our Edited Guide Entries merely link to video material in archives. On occasion, however, videos have been embedded in our text pages. Videophiles, rejoice. The Edited Guide has moving pictures. We'd like to share a few.
Check these out:
- The Great Bacon Sandwich contains an action-acked demonstration by Skankyrich, with music by 2legs.
- How to Draw a Cartoon Bird – a title to conjure with. By the AViators.
- The Edited Guide is nothing if not instructional. View this must-see demonstration of How to Use Rubber Gloves Properly.
- This one should get your willing participation: view Games You Can Play in the Office. The acting in this one is so superb, we can't believe they didn't win a BAFTA.
- SERIOUS video omission: The lack of an embedded video for Alfresco Sex. Come on – even with British weather, you should have had volunteers.
In addition to the Edited Guide, the Post is occasionally blessed with video support, though not embedded. For a fun blast from the Post past, check out Lost Transmissions: Coffee by Tim Stevenson (or tap the picture here). The excellent video is but a mouseclick away.
We're sure there are more videos in the EG that we haven't found. If you have a favourite, please put the link in the comments below.
Happy reading! And happy viewing!
