I have, of course, read all the dune books, most of Frank Herbert's other works, and a couple of those travesties that dare speak his name. I've actually read about half the dune encyclopedia, too. A couple of years ago, I started a facebook group(http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=18750509096 ) in a fit of impotent rage after despairing of finding anyone who shared my desire to abduct Brian Herbert and KJA and do really awful things to them. I can get really creative with these things, but mostly they involve Fremen curses, going over a long list of inconsistencies in their various books, and also an in depth comparison of elementary school writing samples and excerpts from the prequels. But don't need to tell you this. You know. Which is nice.
    I've never really known anyone who was into Dune. A few friends have read the first book, and a couple even got to God Emperor and gave up. Which I think happens a lot. But come on people! Anyway, you get it. As an artist, sci fi is generally disparaged among my peers, and as a bartender, it's pretty well understood that, while the concept of being a nerd may be socially acceptable, the reality of someone who makes jokes about Shaitan is pretty damn weird. So I contain myself. And in public, I will continue to do so.
    Okay, so I went a little bit on a tangent. So to summerize:
    Dune=GOOD
    F.Herbert=brilliant
    B.Herbert=uuuugh
    KJA=satansatansatanuntalentedsatan
    Prequels, etc: REALLY?! KILLER ROBOTS?! Badly written, badly conceived
    Me=kind of an enthusiast

    Okay! Well, I'm going to peruse the forums a bit more. Loving it so far. And hoping this was what I was supposed to do, since there are under 400 members. So I'll see you kids around.




    Such a very amazing link!
    Thanks you for the post.


    Buh-bye, hon. Seriousry. You da Jurie Wong dese guys get all prissed off at on Amarzon?

    OK. I'll do a dump of all my Facebook group links when I get home.

    The Dune-related ones, I mean. I assume you wouldn't be interested in the transsexual midget farm kosupure porn stuff, right? ;)

    Edit: Sorry, didn't get to it last night, but here you go...

    Arrakis - Dune - desert planet...

    Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson suck!

    Dune

    Dune is the Greatest Sci-Fi Epic Ever Written

    Sur Dune avec Frank Herbert

    Arrakis: Facebook Sietch

    Crimes Against Literature (one you belong to already)

    Dune

    Dune Italia - Le sabbie Italiane di DUNE

    I Know More About Dune than kja and Brian Herbert (Nehrun, spammer!)

    Orthodox Herbertarians

    You can tell just from the top posts on the Wall of each group whether they're active or not.

    There's also The Dune Saga, and The Official Dune page, and a closed ultra-top-secret group of KJA fans, but you can find that kind of crap on your own. ;)

    not a bad idea, if you're worried about security... I only now feel confident that I can log back into the FB thing, after my system got violated via FB. Now I have a single comp that accesses potentially damaging sites - I isolate all my important data on my local network, that has no physical (or wireless) connection to the Internet. Unless I'm at work, of course :lol: Is security your concern? or just had enough of FB in general? lol

    No, I just tend to say things I'll regret when sober.

    not a whole lot... just combing through a plethora of months-old threads being revived for random hellos from someone who has been here for less time than the welcomees.

    hmmm... that's too bad! If it makes you feel sad, then you should get a tissue, or two. :tissue2: Everything will be alright, though... I'm sure that the revival of the aforesaid threads will be a momentary thing, and you can go back to the peace and tranquility you enjoyed before the disruptions took place. And don't forget that there would be a pattern to the randomness, if you can see it. If not, there are glasses for that kind of thing. :lol: L8
