    Kanye West's Dune shoes

    Not sure which collars he meant - the shoes look a bit Lynch-Harkonnen... or maybe he saw COD? - That had a lot of collar :P

    EDIT: Just pasted this into ebay: some of these are selling for £1000... ouch :shock:

    THIS is a collar...

    But yeah, Feyd does have a bit of a collar - That padded ribbed thing the shoes does have a Harkonnen-esque vibe.

    if this "kanye west" is who I think he is,
    he must be talking about the movie or TV ...
    no effing way he read the book ...

    hey, isn't that the guy who tortured and killed
    Carlos Mencia for calling him a "gay fish" on South Park ?

    that guy ?

    Thats pretty surprising that Kanye, a world famous rapper, would be a fan of Dune. And yeah, I agree, he definitely didn't read the book.

    Never heard of him. Makes me wonder how "world famous" he is?

    I'm just sayin'.

    I've heard of him.

    Wasn't there something about his mother in the news as well? About a year ago or so?

    (She was devoted to him and his career and died ... or gave birth to a pride of lion cubs ... something like that. :( )

    for those who are interested http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanye_west

    Not a fan personally, but if he saw the lynch or sci fi series.... more power to him.

    Wonder if there is a way to send him a greeting from Jacurutu and offer that he check out the
    audio book if his busy schedule doesnt allow to read the written word?

    Famous folks to bulster the fame of Dune (Franks version of course) works for me.
    "Long Live the Fighters", "Dragon.....the other white meat."

    He's pretty much one of the biggest rappers in the world right now, multi-platinum huge. He also pretty much sucks, but that's not the point. :wink:

    All of that is nothing to me. I'd read Kevin J. Anderson's entire output, start to finish, before I'd listen to an hour of that shit.

    That's a bold statement - the average KJA audiobook is ~18 hours long. Start with 10 nudune books and 7 SoSS books - that's more than 300 hours.. or 13 solid days just for those. If you start now you'll be dead in 2 weeks. Or worse you'll be a brain-dead card-carrying member of the KJASF. :o

    I'll take an hour of sub-par rap any day :P

    I don't care if it means anything to you, you asked how big this guy really was (and were obviously insinuating that you figured he wasn't very big), and I let you know that he is in fact gigantic. That is all. Not sure where you're going with this.

    I'd never make it that far. Even with good narrators, my head would explode somewhere around the second day.

    And they call that shoes????

    I call it a pile of crap, what is it with rappers turned stylists that they want to superimpose layer after layer of tack?

    They might go down well with the "insta' rapper kit":

    Im still cracking up about the "Instant Rapper kit", to think that grown adults sat around a table in some corporate office and seriously discussed and approved the product for creation and sale.. is hilarious.

    Other than Kanye Dune footwear, whats next "how to get a date with Fergie?" instruction manuals?
    "Long Live the Fighters", "Dragon.....the other white meat."
