Losing virginity

Postby dune stroller » 16 Jun 2010 00:11

Hello all. Yes, first time for me. Popping my post cherry.
Never posted before (anywhere), also cant type worth a shit (two fingers) so may not post much but rest assured I will visit when possible.
First read Dune about 30 years ago and like most of you, loved it and have re-read the series several times since. Read the prequels and sequels (don't normally self harm) and
find it hard to believe the travesty that those pair of fucking imbeciles have foisted upon Dune fans. Found you after having a look at Dune novels site and laughing at the pathetic justifications spewed out by fans of BH/KJA. Love the way you all rip them to shreds, and they just don't get it. You have restored my sanity (temporarily). Cheers.

Welcome! The new Dune books are, indeed, a travesty. Image

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

And what to expect other than a travesty of a book when you find a transvestite of a robot in it?

that's what I thought, altho a better expression would be :
I am glad to see I am not the only one to not get this

or:
Sure gladder'n a pig in Iraq durin' Ramadan I ain't the only one who don't know what that there was meanin' ...

and there's a difference between a double-negative and just plain Southern Talk ...

f'instance, (Chig), is this form a double-negative :

I don't need me none of them, I done got more'n I can eat ...

I tried to parse it out myself, but fuck that ....

Oh, y' ole coot, don't you know there ain't nobody here gonna pay nothing like that no never mind! ;)

Parsin' it ain't no problem. It's just addin' negative emphasis. (Addin' negatives ... ain't that the same as subtractin'? :? ) It's when you think it has to make sense logically (that "two negatives make a positive" bullshit) that you get inna trouble!

Damned fool 17th century British grammarians! :lol:
