Postby EyesofBlue » 06 Dec 2011 14:04

Hello my name is Jon. Huge fan of the Dune books. So far I have read:

Frank Herbert

Dune
Dune Messiah
Children of Dune
God Emperor of Dune
Heretics of Dune
Chapterhouse: Dune

Brian Herbert/Kevin J. Anderson

House Atreides
House Hakonnen
House Corrino
The Bulterian Jihad
The Machine Crusade
The Battle of Corrin
Sandworms of dune
Paul of Dune

I've also got most of the movies on DVD.
1980's Dune movie
Same 1980's directors cut

1990's Dune Miniseries

I used to have Children of Dune on VHS but I stopped watching VHS tapes some time ago.

Anyway glad to be here and look forwarding to participating.

Very Respectfully,
Jon

welcome twice welcome !

Just one small detail, mcdune is not Dune :

The movie/series have their flaws but they participated to the myth, the hack and the idiot son just pissed all over it.

If only great writers could live forever then the sequels would be never-ending!

Ashamed to say that I have actually enjoyed some of the stuff that Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have done. I admit it isn't the same as Franks masterpiece but it's entertaining.

If by entertaining you mean it facilitates bowel transit then we agree.

be aware that we (speaking of the Orthodox Herbertarians) more than loathe the McDune;
we personally fucking hate the hack known as KEVIN J. ANDERSON, known here as
Keith, Steve, asshat pickle-fucker, that shitheel & various other derogatory AKAs ...
(the hate for Keith's person is well documented here, from his twits & blahgs (updated daily))

know also that despite claims from the KJA Special Forcers, we are all fair & open-minded;
BUT: to date, the only hint of even minimal acceptance of the McDune is what is known as
the "Simon Defense" - yeah, it's really juvenile bullshit & a rape of Frank's Literary Legacy,
but ... I kinda like juvenile bullshit ... I read StarWars & Warhammer, too, but I don't think that
stuff is literature in the way Frank's Dune is.


also be aware that some here donot accept the "Simon Defense" anyway ....

take all of this into consideration, wander around the sietch, and I'll hold your Water on reserve ...

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

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

MOTHER FUCKING WIN.

^^ hey, there's where I need the "center" clicky, BTW ... ^^



@EoB: you'll find a number of threads around here from the past 4 years concerning the sietch's google-rank
versus the Official Corporate Dune Forum (which is at the bottom of page two for me ....)

it almost warms our cold, dead hearts to finally be able to steer the Innocent away from "Over There", atleast
in the beginning .... I think it's fucking VITAL to understand the nature of the Corporate Dune Board & Merritt's
tactics, even if someone is luke-warm on the McDune .... the recent Facebook McDune Saga recently
discussed here is a good example ... an Innocent might read tehKJA's comments about us & accept it @ face
value ... but, wander around here awhile, and you'll discover for yourself the well-documented & archived public
horseshit they've pulled over the years ... it's a pattern of self-denial, self-delusion, outright lies & attempted
intimidation that'd make Glenn Beck say "Man, that's fucked UP, yo."

Welcome. Your Water is Ours.

Great, please do!

As long as they come with the intent of discussing Dune they should have nothing to worry about. :wink:
