    to do a byron/byrony: just made up expression that gets its name from the almighty pussy of Dung Novels, and that covers any commentary, post or other twat that pushes forward the OH credo without, of course, being done on purpose!
    Also called Shooting yourself repeatedly in the foot.

    Example:

    The post that got me banned.

    Posting a link without realizing it mocks the hack... this is byrony.

    And once again Hollywood proves it has run out of original ideas. Why else would they remake this movie?

    Back in 1981, when special effects were beginning to take serious root in films, we had the original CLASH OF THE TITANS. It had some cheesy claymation mixed with some less cheesy special effects. But it did have a story. A damn good one. Sure there were action sequences, especially when Perseus (Harry Hamlin) met up with Medusa. But these action scenes were barely a few minutes long. The story of the gods, how they felt about humanity (and how humanity felt about them) dominated the storyline. Yes, there was an actual story.


    A bit like the Real Dune as opposed to the nudune kewl pewpew laser show and torture scenes that make a whole chapter?
    Yes, there was an actual story indeed...

    This is byrony!

    this man is a goldmine!

    I heard rumor that a sequel is in the making. Hmm. Let’s hope they don’t ruin a good thing by trying to make a big budget block-buster with M. Night.

    Yeah, let's hope they don't ruin a literary masterpiece by putting a best selling journeyman with the mental age of a bigbudgetblockbusterproducer in charge...

    Did we really need another thread about queefing?

    I pointed out Byron's hypocrisy of reviewing films vs. what we wrote on DN. He never got it, but for awhile his "reviews" looked more like summaries. Every single thing he says about movies he doesn't like applies to McDune.

    Oh that's okay. Anything to point out Byron's double standard is a good thing.

    This was actually a review by Chad Wilson. But I applaud the sentiment.

    Maybe not, but at least you don't have to read Byron's that way. Every one of his latest "reviews" is a summary of the plot. The only fun thing about reading them is finding typos.

    Ah. The "Preeq on Amazon/Harriet Klausner" School of "Reviewing"! :lol:

    Congrats, Byron, you've hit the Big Time! :roll:
    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

    but... but... I never hecked because Byron linked it from his profile on Dungnovels... I mean I never expected to find someone else's review the way it was presented...

    He puts his email adress above someone else's stuff? I don't get it and I don't want to really...
