Mr. Melange in da House

Postby Mr. Melange » 30 Jul 2014 10:44

Yo this is the Mr. Melange, and unfortunately I see I kinda missed the bandwagon for this site...

Well first off I guess I want to say I am young, mostly cause I feel so, but I also haven't read the series as much as you guys obviously have. I have read GEoD like 3 times from front to back, and have read a random chapter of the book perhaps 2 to 10 times a week. Other than that though, I have read Dune thrice, Messiah twice, Children twice, Herectics twice, and Chapterhouse I'll say one and a half times.

Point is, I really want to compliment you guys on your knowledge of Dune, and how much more it makes me interested in the series. Dune has been my favorite series for a while, but literally, the only person I have ever fully discussed this with is my ex-girlfriend. To see you guys discuss all this stuff not only gives me new ideas, but helps keep my pre-conceived ones fresh. I have read many of your discussions and most of the time I am so impressed that I have nothing to even say. You guys have effectively satisfied my Dune cravings and I am endlessly grateful for that.

So here is what I have to offer back (though I am sure you have discussed this before.) My first reading of Dune was actually an assignment for my English class my senior year of high school. It is funny because I actually shirked the book off and did pretty poorly on it for the first few weeks, but once I actually started the book, i was hooked. Everybody in that class loved the book as well, and allowed for crazy deep discussions which you would only expect from a high schooler if they were stoned.

So I 100% believe Dune should be taught in high school, senior year probs. And at the same time, so long as Kevin J Fucktard and his asslave are still at large, the series could be discredited simply because of how many books are in the series. It now looks like every other crazy nerdy SF series.

I do believe that you guys can take down the hack. Perhaps it's just the young rebel in me but I really think that between FH's brilliance and your loud yet intelligient trolling, you could draw the attention that the hack has so desperately been trying to avoid.

Nobody reads Dune anymore, and sometimes I fear the book will be forgotten in the next 20 years...

Haha, I kinda liked the ring it had, really didn't think of it too hard.
Hope its not too off putting. Figured you could take it.

It doesn't offend me, but just to be clear, we frown on any kind of racism here.

Well perhaps offend is the wrong word, but I suppose you can call me an advocate of the word "nigga" so that it in a way, diminishes the negative impact of the use of the word "nigger". Kinda convoluted, but I do believe it makes some sense.

But yes, I am right alongside you there.

Nigga dimishes the negative impact word nigger? That is a first. As far as I know it means exactly the same thing for exactly the same reason. Freak is boss so he decides. I find it distasteful though to say the least.

Since you have already offered to change it, give me your second choice and I'll make it so.

Welcome Mr. Melange and Serkanner is great, don't listen to Freak... :cat fight: ..... well at least on this point.

Sorry new guys, I don't know you yet.
