You mean the way the sea stays steady as a rock and the buildings keep washing up and down?

Ripping a few CDs into iTunes (on the basis that they've been sitting on, and therefore clogging up, the lounge floor for a few months and it would be nice to get them done and therefore moved out of the way). Have reached BBC Radiophonic Workshop - A Retrospective, and I find myself wondering why, exactly, one of Paddy Kingsland's pieces from The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy is called "Brighton Pier". Wouldn't "Southend Pier" be more accurate*?

And why has there not been a proper CD release of Mr Kingsland's music from H2G2? It's something that really ought to happen some time soon. That and Roger Limb's The Box of Delights.

*Or to be really really pedantically accurate, "A Simulacrum of Southend Pier Experienced By Ford and Arthur After Being Picked Up By The Starship Heart of Gold Whilst It Was Travelling At Infinite Improbability," but that's not a particularly catchy title. I guess.

ETA: Oh, I'd forgotten how bl**dy marvellous Peter Howell's The Astronauts is...
