    @token2k6: I think it might have been a book too.

    Maybe

    Think it was cover art for one of the original books, done post-Lynch flick.

    They obviously aren’t walking without rhythm.

    @Neuromancer: If they have attracted the worm due to walking, it is because they were walking with rhythm, and not as you say without it.

    It was book cover. I love the foreign names for these books so much. “Der Wusten Planet” “Kindern van Duin”

    Anyone who hasn’t read Dune suck unless they have a very real intention to at the very least red the fist book and to further read the rest because they will surely b interested and if they don’t they suck harder.

    @RSIxidor: I <3 that book. There is also a film in production that is due out in 2010. If done properly I believe it will be an incredible piece of work, though it will most likely pale in comparison to the awesomeness that is David Lynch.

    Read the first book.

    Ignore the rest.

    Pray for a good movie conversion.

    here is the Jacket Text for Winds for anyone with a Spice Boner: After the reign of Muad’Dib, an empire begins to crumble. Paul Muad’Dib – cheered as a hero, worshipped as a messiah, hated as a tyrant – has vanished into the endless deserts of the planet Dune, leaving his turbulent empire without guidance. Now it’s up to his young sister Alia and his formidable mother, the Lady Jessica, aided by the faithful Gurney Halleck, the Fremen leader Stilgar and the resurrected Duncan Idaho, to keep the human race from tearing itself apart. Fuelling the flames of dissent is… Read more »

    NOT AGREED

    Though I will accept that his son’s work is not as good as his, the original set of books are masterpieces. The whole series, and especially the first four books, will always be held as great science fiction. ARE YOU MAD!?! YOU MUsT BE MAD!

    i read 3 1/2 of the Dune books. then i couldn’t take it anymore. the first three are excellent. the movie was good- but left out SO MUCH of the book. i think a movie would have to be 3 parts at the least.

    Anyone who loves Dune and understands German, is obligated to listen to “Krieger” by Die Fantastischen Vier and have their mind blown.

    dieAntagonista
    Member

    And after that listen to “Millionen Legionen” by the same band and have your mind blown a second time.

    Or listen to it anyway and look up the translation.

    Or learn German and then listen to it.

    /me wishes I understood German, but by the time the effort is put forth I’ll forget the songs

    One and Two are good. Three is OK. Four is a box full of pain, only worth reading if you are a superfan, but Chapterhouse is as good as the first.

    I have enjoyed the son’s works, but only as an excellent work of fanfic.

    @RSIxidor:

    You could just look up the translation and then listen to the songs you lazy bastard.

    dieAntagonista

    Hm, I could have sworn suicydking said he found the translation for Millionen Legionen but I can’t find one for either of those songs.

    You know what, I’ll translate them myself, and post them on last.fm.

    Because I rule.

    If you were perchance to get on Skype I could give you English lessons. 😀

    My qualifications are being in accelerated english programs in high school and having no accent.

    @Sticky: Why? :l

    I thought my grammar is fine. Aw.

    You know I wasn’t actually going to sing those songs in English, just translate the lyrics.

    @dieAntagonista:
    No, but you said that you needed to get rid of your accent. Plus I think it’d be fun to talk to you. It wasn’t a slam on you in any way.

    @Tetsuo137: One time, I sang a Yiddish song, in front of roughly 100 people from my town. It was the first time I have ever done that, my old ballet teacher called me because some other girl got sick. They gave some sort of small concert, which they often do. Anyway, they all applauded like furious at the end, and one woman who sat in the second row started crying. What I’m trying to say is, I still rule and your ears are probably not even worthy of my voice anyway. The song was “Bei Mir Bist Du Schön” by… Read more »

    Oh, you manipulative woman, you.

    Tetsuo137

    @dieAntagonista: They most likely applauded because the torment was finally over. The poor woman in the second row could no longer take the sounds that were quite similar to that of a cat in heat that she gave way to tears of agony. I sympathize with her as I would most likely prefer taking a cheese grater to my own ears rather than undergo such torture. Hehe. I’m sure it was a lovely little concert.

    Do not ever get rid of your accent or I will be very, very, unhappy.

    And no he’s not a big pile of shitake mushrooms. He was just poking fun at me for the sake of poking fun at me.

    Sneakers really aren’t all that sneaky. Especially if you’re on an indoor court.

    @RSIxidor:

    You should see mine then. The more tired I am when I come home, the more likely my sneakers are to just disappear. I get up after I took a nap and bada boom bada bang they’re gone! It’s the same every time. I could have sworn I kicked one into the bathroom and the other into the living room, what the hell.
