Hi there!

Postby Dom » 12 Jun 2008 00:54

Hi. I'm Dom, a video editor from the UK. I guess I have to describe myself as an 'Orthodox' Dune fan. I love the original six Frank Herbert novels, but find the subsequent books from the Herbert Estate not to be my cup of tea.

For example, I always assumed The Butlerian Jihad was an intellectual revolution that led to violence, rather than a rebellion against evil killer robots created by internet gamers in exosuits who enslaved mankind!

I also assumed the characters at the end of Chapterhouse: Dune were super-Face Dancers, rather than 'evil Killer Robots!'

So here I am, apparently an 'Orthodox' having found this site through Facebook. I adore Dune and am endlessly fascinated by its complex background and philosophy. I look forward to chatting about it with y'all! :)

Welcome from the buggy contingent here! :D
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

Hello and welcome!
“But what is the good of friendship if one cannot say exactly what one means? Anybody can say charming things and try to please and to flatter, but a true friend always says unpleasant things, and does not mind giving pain. Indeed, if he is a really true friend he prefers it, for he knows that then he is doing good.” -Oscar Wilde

I don't bash the prequels too much, since without them I'd have never gotten into Dune. Oh well.


I'm an OH to the core, but my first copy of Dune was the commemorative edition that sold to try and drum up interest again, and sow ground for the prequels.

Welcome!

I joined the Dune Group. I'm new to Facebook so I haven't really explored it yet.

I check out a bit on the "discussions" going on that Dune group and though I recognized a few people, seems like most are retarded preeks...or did I miss something? :?
