Pretty much.


Blaze of Glory, [Nekhrun]...

I thought I was for awhile but Byron just kept letting me post and then I got sick of him. Now I just can't be bothered to go back there. Maybe if I ever get around to finishing Paul of Dune I'll have something to add over there.

It's funny... I was just thinking the other day that it has literally been months since I even looked around over there to see what new stupidities had been posted. Guess I just lost interest entirely.

And besides, it's The Dune Saga group/page/whatever on Facebook where all the action is now. Why, Kevvie even posts and responds to questions there! :roll:

I'm blocked from even viewing it....

I blogged this last night, but it needs posting here, too:

Jazzy Dim (David James) is not floating the idea that the new characters (and elements?) introduced by The Hacks Twain (like Omnius and Erasmus) were ACTUALLY THERE IN FH'S "DUNE 7" NOTES and that The Fuckers Two introduced them back into their Legends books...

:shock:

:duh:

THIS from the fucker who freely admits that HE HAS YET TO READ ALL OF THE REAL DUNE BOOKS.

This is stupid from a whole new dimension of existence... one that I cannot even begin to fathom....

Double post:

What Jizzy Dam is obviously overlooking (among other things!!!) is that FrankFucker #1 and FrankFucker #2 have already admitted that ERASMUS AND OMNIUS WERE THEIR OWN CREATIONS!!!

From the Hunters of Dune audiobook interview:

BH: Well, this is where ... Omnius and Erasmus are actually ... characters that Kevin and I created. Um, and, they were not based on any notes that we found of Frank Herbert's at all.


This is taken somewhat out of context - I didn't want to risk spoilers for any future readers - But I don't think I've changed the meaning by doing so.

Herbert continued, "I usually write the first draft of the Erasmus character. Kevin came up with a character -- a Thinking Machine who was researching what it was like to be human -- and I said let's add (the Nazi medical researcher) Dr Mengele to him and make him really dark and strange. Then Kevin laughed and said, 'Boy Brian, I don't know if I can write that, you'd better do it!' He wasn't saying that couldn't write it -- it was just a little dig that only my twisted mind could write that character. So we have a lot of fun. We riff off each other, like a musical performance."

I guess I'm glad that they're not saying Mr. Frank Herbert came up with that shit. Man, would I love to get a look at those notes, if there are any.

You could sign the petition at DN. I'm sure it's still around there somewhere.

I had to do something special for Sisterhood.

Didn't YOU make that inspirational?

Byron obviously hasn't been there in three days. I've laid waste to the place.
