Every time I read about one of KJA's atrocious ideas, I'm even more glad I haven't read the prequels and sequels. I like it that my first thought was "who is Erasmus?"

Ditto for me, and sincerely i don't know who Erasmus is! (I could go and read the entry in the Wikipedia)

But I'm curious, if only I could read a digital version of Dune 8: Watersandworms of dune...
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

Well, she really messed up there if you ask me... :roll:
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

Besides Frank Herbert, Van Gogh must be turning himself in his tomb.
The singular multiplicity of this universe draws my deepest attention. It is a thing of ultimate beauty.

Not only did Erasmus paint it, he destroyed it in 'Sandworms':

Abruptly, with powerful hands, the robot ripped the painting and its frame into tiny pieces. As if putting a punctuation mark on the grotesque display, Erasmus whirled and stomped on the broken pieces, saying, "Call this artistic temperament."


Tell me, was this really necessary, KJA/BH?

I think it's the perfect metaphor for what's been going on with the prequels. Erasmus (KJA creation) ripping the painting (Franks creation) to shreds.

It is indeed a nice metaphor. Isn't there a passage where one of the BG thinks or talks about having OM tracing that exact painting back to it's origins? The frustrating thing is that if we send KJA proof that was a fuck up he'd just say "no no no, what you don't understand is that this was just from the point of view of Erasmus, he just thought it was his painting..." The guy make bullshit into an art form.
