I once shot an elephant in my pyjamas. I've no idea what it was doing in my pyjamas.

Funny you should say that. I once opened the door in my pyjamas.

(There is nothing more fun than driving east down the 10 or 210 freeways on a Friday night at rush hour.)

Just a reminder for those of you who live along the central coast of California that Ray will be at the Big Read event in Santa Barbara this afternoon.

Through the National Endowments for the Arts the city has donated 1,500 copies of F451 to local schools.

"Big Read to focus on 'Fahrenheit 451' : Author Ray Bradbury to speak at Lobero on Oct. 11
September 24, 2009: "Fahrenheit 451," a classic novel about banning and burning books, will be the focal point of the upcoming Santa Barbara Reads/The Big Read Program, which local libraries and schools will observe from Sept. 25 through late October. As part of the program, Ray Bradbury, the author of the famous science-fiction novel from 1953, will speak at the Lobero Theatre at 3 p.m. on Oct. 11. Admission to the lecture will be free. The kickoff for the month-long program will coincide with Banned Books Week, which runs from Saturday through Oct. 3. Santa Barbara Reads, an annual community reading program sponsored by the Santa Barbara Public Library System, won a Big Read grant this year, which saved the program from being eliminated, according to Christine Gallery, the reference librarian for the Santa Barbara Public Library. The program, she said, is designed to revitalize the role of literature in American culture."

(Remember that library events are to benefit libraries so it is unlikely that anything not purchased at the library will be allowed to be signed.)

Twitter is a good word (but a boring web community).

Look carefully at the webpage jkt has directed us to, and you will see a link about "The Fog Horn":

Yet another short film based on Bradbury, although this one was done without securing copyright permissions, so they can't easily release it!

The filmmakers should perhaps read this from "Comics Should Be Good," which Phil brought back to our attention a while ago:

http://goodcomics.comicbookres...egends-revealed-146/

http://raybradburyboard.com/ev...851012663#6851012663


Here's the part I like:

"Now, some writers would react to their work being swiped by getting angry. Bradbury, however, decided to play it a different way, by sending the following brilliant letter to Gaines in 1952:

Just a note to remind you of an oversight. You have not as yet sent on the check for $50.00 to cover the use of secondary rights on my two stories THE ROCKET MAN and KALEIDOSCOPE...I feel this was probably overlooked in the general confusion of office work, and look forward to your payment in the near future.

Gaines was no fool - he quickly sent the money, along with a cordial response, and pretty soon, Bradbury was authorizing EC Comics to do OFFICIAL adaptations of his stories, and that became a draw for their science fiction titles, so long as they lasted."

Is it easier to ask forgiveness than ask permission?

Knowing that Ray is a soft touch when it comes to dinosaurs, I think they should send him the film. If it's any good, they won't have to do much begging. (They might need to get their chequebook* out, though.)

*Chequebook = British for checkbook Big Grin
