    MSNBC-Obama bails out Ix and Richese!

    Postby IxianDevice » 22 Apr 2010 14:40

    What a lousy economy lately.
    Upstate NY in USA here. Read original Dune book back in 1984 after seeing the movie for the first time. I became a instant fan of the series and avid reader of anything remotely Frank Herbert.
    Have read and collected all original books in the series and the newer books. Some paperback and some hardcover versions.
    Countless hours were spent playing PC game " Dune 2000" also.
    Was in US Army during Gulf war I, wondered what comparisons were between sands and wadis of Saudi vs Arrakis.
    I only imagined the chafing Fremen had in their stillsuits, my BDUs were magnets for any size grains of sands in Saudi.
    Missed the SciFi TV series of Dune, ended up buying them a year or so later. Not bad!
    Waiting for Throne Of Dune to be released now. Re-Reading Hunters and Sandworms Of Dune now.

    They are totally too big to fail.

    And, you know what? There are better Dune books to be rereading. KJA sucks.

    Welcome to Jacurutu - what are your feelings about the new books vs the originals? I think it's pretty obvious what the prevailing mentality is at this Sietch!

    hi. Hopefully Ix pays us back just as quickly as GM did (with interest!). Fuck Richese.

    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    HOOAH! and welcome!

    I was a cavalry scout during Desert Storm but I was in Germany the whole time, I don't envy your time in the sandbox. What did you do in the Army?
