    A wild fremen form the Tanzerouft wishes to share his water

    Postby Nietzsche's mustache » 28 Oct 2011 12:55

    Greetings fellow Dune lovers!

    Ive recently started my fifth "pilgrimage" through the six masterpieces of one of my favorite writers of all time. It still amazes me how much i get out of them even after all these years. I'm currently reading CoD (at the chapter where The Preacher meets Farad'n) and said to myself: "I need to communicate with other Dune enthusiasts before i get irreparably frustrated by the utter stupidity of people who have read the prequels/sequels without having a sound grasp of the profundities into the human condition that Frank Herbert explored in his magnum opus. I almost had a seizure when someone told me that they were just as good as the originals. I read the Houses and the Butlerian trilogies with some apprehension, but i forced myself to plow through them in order to have a solid understanding of the CRASS difference between the originals imaginative virtuosity and the "plot impaired" nature KJA's prose.

    I must confess that i tried to become an apologist for the Houses and the Butlerian trilogy, but after reading Hunters, Sandworms, Paul of Dune and Winds i just couldn't take it anymore. The sheer banality of their writing became evident as my enthusiasm for new Dune literature waned.

    After a few hours of lurking through Jacurutu's Forum i felt solidarity with many of your expressions. I'm looking forward to debating in an intelligent (and intelligible) fashion with perceptive and insightful Dune Fans. The truth must flow...

    Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

    :shock: :clap:
    The degrees of cleverness in that threat are much appreciated. I actually googled "Nietzsche and Occam" out of curiosity (came up with some weird albeit informative stuff).

    Simplicity is a bit overrated, but in the case of facial hair i guess its the best policy nowadays. Still, just being able to offer "mustache rides" is a pleasurable end in itself. 8-)

    Occam's Razor always makes me think of one of Frank Herbert's Epigraphs: "Truth suffers from too much analysis"

    I like the Joker's take on that one: "That which doesn't kill you makes you stranger!" :violence-axechase:

    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
