Перечитываю Ранкина.  
Я уже постил замечательную цитатку из него. Вот вам еще, про эволюцию, и электронные гитары:

'Evolution', said Ricky. 'And natural selection, and it will go on and on for ever.'
'Oh no, it won't,' said Jim.
'Oh yes, it will.'
'It won't,' said Jim. 'And I will tell you why.'
And Jim told Ricky why. He told Ricky everything that Geraldo had told him. All about how natural selection in human beings would come to an end and mankind would not evolve any further and how tis would eventually led to THE END in a word that was ran by scientists. He didn't go into all the details and he didn't do any of the voices or do the descriptions in rhyme, and he didn't mention the time travelling. But he laid it all out for Ricky and when he was finished the Stratster sat down and stared and stared at Jim.
When Ricky finaly found his voice, all he could say was, 'Wow.'
'So there you go,' said Pooley.
'Wow,' said Ricky once again. 'It all makes sense to me now.'
'It does?' said Jim.
'Oh yes, it does. You see, there was just one thing I could never get my head around.'
'Just the one?' said Jim.
'Just the one. About the Stratocaster. You see, it evolved from the Telecaster, but its evolution stopped in the nineteen fifties and I never could understand why. I thought it should go on and on. That it would keep on evolving. Bit itcan't, can it? It has evolved as far as it can. Because it's perfect. It has reached THE END as far as guitars are concerned.'

Забавно. Жаль, что я не знаю, кто такой Ранкин.

Дядька такой англицкий, типа Пратчетта. У нас его не переводили почти. Может какие-то короткие рассказики, пару штук.

Так Праттчет он же фантаст-фэнтезист, разве нет? А этот про легендарные гитары пишет, о которых даже я слышал (из фильмов), хотя к музыке не имею касательства.

У Пратчетта тоже есть про гитары серия, Soul Music называется. Это тоже вобщем-то фантаст фэнтезист, только все фэнтезение происходит вполне во времена когода легендарные гитары были. %)

Что ж, благодарю за ликвидацию безграмотности. Будем постигать.
