Life Lessons from the Desert Calendar?

That kinda rings a bell... has he been flogging those for more than a year or so?

I wonder if they update them, or if they're old ones?! :lol:

I wondered... :?

No evidence to the contrary, they're not rumored to be fuck-buddies.

I saw that and got a sick feeling in my stomach.

On the plus side, I did snicker when I saw that there is a "Diane" that one could email to subscribe. If she could handle FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper's recordings, then she could handle just about anything that tehKJAcket shats into his recorder.

Actually, I take that back. No one could actually handle his shats. She must be just about bonkers by now.

I don't think she's the one that oodles his oral pooh for him. I think she's more a Wirdfur secretary?

(I could be wrong, though. :? )

Issue 48 is now available for download (see link upthread)
• THE SISTERHOOD OF DUNE—Brian &
Kevin have completed the 700-page
manuscript of the next installment in the
epic Dune saga. The first novel in a new
trilogy set eight decades after the Battle of
Corrin, details the early years of the Bene
Gesserit order, the Mentat School, the
Spacing Guild, the Suk doctors, and the
Swordmasters of Ginaz, as well as the
fledgling Imperium after the defeat of the
thinking machines. But the violent anti-
technology fervor could spark a new Dark
Age for the human race.

731 pages, according to his Twit about it, I thought. :roll: (He gave the wordage, too, but I'd nodded off by then.)

Anti-technology fervor? Oh roger me raw with a cream pastry. :roll:

The dumbfuck has no comprehension of what Frank Herbert wrote about the period following the Jihad AT ALL.

Fuck.

Trying to up his Arab street cred some more, I take it. Ahbal. :roll:

Yeah, last I checked, Dune had plenty of technology. There just wasn't any artificial intelligence.

I thought they already covered this in one of the Legend books. The Sisterhood was formed when a Sorceress of Rossak slipped in a puddle of magic urine.
