This is typical of the trolls on this forum, siding with the perpetrator (orangutan) and blaming the victim (myself). Every time I have had sexual spirituality with orangutans it has been consensual. They each presented themselves as willing participants, often plying me with alcohol, just to get access to me at my most vulnerable moment - 4 seconds after achieving orgasm.

You want an orangutan to rip one of my arms off and shove it up my "arse?" That's lovely. That's a wonderful thing to say to a victim of a violent attack, especially one who suffers from a prolapsed anus.

Why are you people like this? Whatever happened to live and let live? And furthermore...

Drawing of wolverine: Is that an ass or pair of jugs on his back?

sound as a weapon is cool, not a topic I spent much time on. I wonder if they took the songs of whales and applied them, what kinda damage they would do? Whale song travels across thousands of miles to the others so it must be pretty dam loud. That space craft log thing in the "voyage home" sure caused some damage waiting for a reply to its sound message.

Orangutan in Clint's movie's was cool, about all I can say about that.

Evolution is just one of God's handy hat tricks to keep us guessing:)

I think he goes by Floda Reltih, and lives in south america, and continues sound weapon development down there.

I used to have an LP of Songs of the Humped Back Whales that I listened to a lot in high school.

Come to think of it, it made me hard, too.

Wolverine's back-tits are definitely something I'm going to think a lot about later tonite. :dance:

Yes. The technique involving sound was intended to characterize a special fighting method the Atreides had perfected: a technique that threatened the Emperor and the status quo. Apparently the movie's producer or director thought that the concept of the Atreides possessing hand-to-hand martial arts superiority was just too difficult to understand or perhaps just too difficult to portray on screen. As a substitute for Atreides fighting excellence, the sound technique was introduced, but it had several limitations. For example, it depended on technological apparatus, rather than inborn (genetic) potentiality and the Atreides culture of excellence in training. In effect, it was a cheat, and an aspect of the Dune Universe that was inconsistent with post-Butlerian Jihad prohibitions against exotic technologies that counterfeit humankind's abilities with machine components.

Although sound techniques have a rich history in the present day world, for example, Ralien sexual sound enhancement techniques, Bhakti yoga mantralogy, or Old Testament Walls of Jericho sonic displacement, they are fundamentally limited when considered in a science fiction context. They are slow, they cannot propagate in a vacuum, and can be easily countered (with sound insulating technologies). If Paul is to be portrayed as superhuman protagonist, some other underlying basis for his special abilities should be introduced.

It has always been my personal ambition, as a filmmaker, to find a way to portray martial arts in the context of film. We haven't seen it yet, but I believe it's possible. Indeed, it has been considered the "sound barrier" (or gom jabbar, if you will) of film art. That forbidden territory, surrounded by reddish hair, into which no auteur dares venture. 1) Man will never fly. 2) Man will never walk on the moon. 3) Man will never perform martial arts in a movie.

Well, I believe that man* will prove that #3 is just as false an assumption as #1 and #2. Even if it only works in the context of an art film, one day martial arts will be portrayed in a movie. This is an insight I've had in the course of sensual meditation, and I will take no credit for it when it happens.

I think that Barbara Hand Clow would suggest that Paul's abilities were rooted in the photon band of the 7th dimension, and I believe that we will all be capable of doing these things when our entry into the Photon Band is completed in 2012.

I wonder if, when we realize that the abilities of a Kwisatz Haderach are revealed to be very "human" (rather than "superhuman"), will we even be interested in reading stories about superheroes? Or, will it get boring because we're all capable of doing what a so-called "Kwisatz Haderach" can do? I'm worried that it's going to get really fucking boring around here.

I don't know, Merkin ... in the past, some of your crazier ideas have proved out, but I'm very skeptical
of this "portraying martial arts in film" thing ... raises many questions ... which martial arts do
you have in mind, and what, exactly, do you mean by "film" ?

and do not forget what happened to Bruce Lee and his son ...

Chigger - I'm still not understanding if these sonic erections are desired or not ?
if not, I would suggest either not going to drive-in burger joints or wrapping
your penis in tin-foil ... (works for me)

It's hard to improve upon the original story, i.e., adding ones own innovations to improve the pacing or whatever. I remember one comic author discussion how to adapt a movie to a comic book. It involved including key scenes that told the story. That's what I think movie directors should do to adapt novels to movies: include the key scenes, scenes that people who have read the book will recognize and identify with, scenes that novel readers will appreciate. I recall that Peter Jackson mentioned that he often found that Tolkien knew best with respect to what worked best in a scene: it rarely was worth changing what Tolkien originally wrote.

I know that movie directors want their movies to be understandable and enjoyed by persons who have never read the books, but How successful was the movie Dune - with David Lynch's editorial modifications? Not very:

"In his review, critic Roger Ebert gave Dune 1 star out of 4 and wrote 'This movie is a real mess, an incomprehensible, ugly, unstructured, pointless excursion into the murkier realms of one of the most confusing screenplays of all time.' Ebert added that 'The movie's plot will no doubt mean more to people who've read Herbert than to those who are walking in cold,' and later named it 'the worst movie of the year.'

Well, they're fantastic at the time... but afterwards I feel so cheap and dirty and used. :(

Tin-foil, huh? I don't think we've got any left after making all our hats...

Ah, tumescence. An excellent word. Much underrated and underused.
