    Don't you put a shitload of work into this forum?

    All you'd need is a couple hundred dollar mic set-up. (If you're worried about costs I know a couple podcasters who have setups that work very well but did not cost them much at all - (Dylan Schuck @schuckster on Twitter) - and ask him how he does it on a shoestring budget. But Nekhrun, I would wager, would know exactly how to set this up.

    Be in a room with blankets to deaden the sound. It can also be done remotely from two different locations.
    2 guys to break down the first Dune book, in one hour segments.

    The subject matter may seem obvious to to you, but your audience is the person who's only read the book once or twice, or is in the midst of reading it. Or someone like me, who doesn't have a very in-depth understanding or memory of the books in comparison to you guys, and hasn't read them in a while, but would like to revisit them.

    Talk about all of the great ideas and the depth of the characters, the implied backstories, (without spoiling the next episodes).

    Do all of the real Dune books first, and make references to the Dune Encyclopedia.

    I think people would love it.

    Your costs are your hosting fees and bandwidth. Put it on Sticher and eventually get it on iTunes. It wouldn't be that hard to do.

    I stand corrected. This is an amazing idea.

    After all these years, you ask something of me? Why now?

    Sorry to disappoint you but I no longer have the means to upload videos.

    I am having technical issues with the old computer I used to upload videos with. This laptop does not upload videos in the same way.

    I still upload a video occasionally during 'windows of opportunity' so to speak. Here is the link to my Youtube channel.

    Recently Star Citizen added some planetary work.

    While I feel like Sandworms in the desert might be getting played out, this is one of the better one's I've seen. And of course being both a massive Dune and Star Citizen fanboy has nothing to do with it....

    I can't be the only one who's noted the resemblance of Donald Trump's mouth to that of a Guild Navigator (3rd level) in the Lynch film, can I?

    Speaking of Trump, I mean Drumph...

While he rules with a tiny iron fist he is not respected and keep his power by sheer ruthlessness. His corpulent form is prime breeding ground for the many disease on his desert planet and he is forced to spend daily treatments floating in his healing tank to try to keep ahead of them. Due to this practise, and the many workers, nurses and slaves that have seen it, the most popular insult whispered around the slums of the city roughly translates to "As smart as his penis is large".

    Seen here naked and floating.

    Bless the Maker and all His Water. Bless the coming and going of Him, May His passing cleanse the world. May He keep the world for his people.
