Ah, this is nice

Postby Silverseid » 08 Mar 2011 06:02

You ever have such an irrational hate of something it just creeps into your mind and pisses you off at random and varying times ruining what was previously a perfectly fine moment of being? That's how I would describe my feelings for Franks son. I've shared this with numerous foke, but it's one thing to be heard and another to be heard an understood. I think here on this forum I may find my reckoning.

Love Dune. Changed my life. Hope that doesn't sound too dramatic. Picked up my fathers old copy of Dune when I was 10 after watching the Syfy mini. It was like amazing thoughts were flooding into my head. Nothing has even come close to touching me in the way Dune did (specifically the first four works) and I've been through multiple philosophy text book in college and consider myself fairly well read (although I haven't really sat down with a book I didn't need for school in some time)

Good to be here. Thinking about giving the series another read starting with God Emperor just so I'll be able to chat about it more eloquently with the rest of you.

Bless the Maker and all His Works; Bless the coming and going of Him; May His passing cleanse the world

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

Welcome Welcome, and yes I know how you feel, I have that reaction to the sound-based entertainment people try to pass off as music these days.

Not at all. There must be tens of thousands of people for whom this is true.
