The fourth one, God Emperor of Dune, is the next best after the original. Two and three aren't bad either, but beware anything after number four.

o. nate (onate), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 17:07 (seventeen years ago) link

This is the fourth of the magnificent dune chronicles.It is amazing that the first three were masterpieces ,but this borders on something even greater,a book of nearly divine wisdom and beauty.No human has created a better work of art in recorded history (save the sistine chapel).This book encompasses all that is important in life ,and shows it to you through the vastly visionary eye,of Leto atredies ,the God of the universe.
This book will give you sympathy for the roll of God,which we so often despise for petty reasons,not even realising the lonliness and sacrifice required ,to be the ruler of all existence.
Should be required reading in all highschools and colleges,along with the other 5 books.
If frank herbert was not divinely inspired,then he is the greatest single writer,in the history of the world.

cutty (mcutt), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 17:11 (seventeen years ago) link

book one: awesome.
book two: snore.
book three: something might happen soon.
book four: cool, something did happen!
book five: sex sells right?
book six: the other side of the onion.

movie: the long version owns the short one simply because it's less of a deliberately confusing lynch picture. (which i like his stuff, but...) seriously, the movie could've been 8 hours and probably barely covered the book. never saw the sci-fi channel stuff.

i'm afraid of all those prequels written by his son and *SHUDDER* kevin j. anderson. i'm not afraid of dorkland really, but i dunno, after 6 books with only 2 being worth it, i just haven't wanted to go there. i have a friend who has read all of that shit and loved it. but he reads buffy novels too so...

msp (msp), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 17:21 (seventeen years ago) link

outing myself as a nerd here.. but Ive read just about all of the books and the prequels. the prequels are pretty bad, but not bad enough to not read it. good easy reading if youre not in the mood to think. but yeah, I agree with most people on the thread - god emperor is pretty bad ass. most of the other stuff goes over your head with the quasi religious psycho babble.

the best thing about dune evar = DUNE 2 GAME FOR PC. IT TALKS.

still bevens (bscrubbins), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 17:49 (seventeen years ago) link

i disagree about the prequels. they are pretty awful. i have also read most them, with the exception of # 6. the first one is pretty amazing, thats why you keep reading. 4 is also good but 2... just skip it. did anyone see the "children of dune" movie in which the character playing alia, supreme being allegedlt wise beyond her years utters the phrase "i'm not gonna.." beautiful acting....

shai hulud is obv all about the dune samples. "heat upon heat upon heat!"
that long version of dune is pretty sweet. the intro by irulan is like an hour long. word around the camp fire is that d. lynch hated the edited version so much he wouldnt put his name on it.

Holly (an appletross), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 20:10 (seventeen years ago) link

eon "void dweller" samples "he who controls the spice controls the universe"

cutty (mcutt), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 20:13 (seventeen years ago) link

With a slew of smart, groundbreaking hardcore techno singles under his belt, all Eon had to do to top it all was release a killer album. On Void Dweller, as with his other work done with the close involvement of Depth Charge's J. Saul Kane, he does just that, with a fairly consistent picture of dance as combination crowd-pleaser and sonic creepout. The odd thing is that the opening track, "A Kind of Living (Green Icing Mix)," is a much more gently jaunty number than most of what else he had done -- a quick check of the credits shows why, though, as Baby Ford provides the mixing help here instead. With that as an almost deceptive start -- there's still something in the bass lines that suggests Eon's more explicit nervous tension -- Void Dweller wends its way through a fine set of early-'90s dance material. Nothing quite forecasts the next big shift in electronic music, the rise of jungle/drum and bass rhythms, but as an aggressive picture of where some of the acid house aftershocks of the late '80s ended up, Void Dweller's great, full stop. The general pattern of appropriate weird and wigged samples from varying sci-fi sources -- Dune, Basket Case, The Outer Limits, and more -- holds true here, as does the generally bombastic-with-a-purpose slamming beat collage. "Spice," "Fear: The Mindkiller," and "Basket Case" itself all take pride of place with varying mixes -- indeed, "Basket Case" itself appears in both the "white coat" and an even more insane "black coat" mix. Plenty of treats surface throughout, though. There's the deep acid bass squelch that suddenly crops up on "Final Warning (Raucous Dub Mix)," the rumbling, ominous shuffle of "Electromagnetic Waves," and the relentless crunch and murky bass synths and distorted vocals of "Infinity" help make Void Dweller the great, head-exploding collection it is.

Lynch took his name off the TV version...ALAN SMYTHE or something.

A traitor.


I saw a CD by a band called Harkonan on Hydra Head...which could be ok?...maybe.

ID KILL TO BE IN A DUNE BAND. IVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT FOR YEARS WITH MY FRIEND. STILLSUIT would be a rad name for a BAD hardcore band.


ddb (ddb), Tuesday, 21 September 2004 20:17 (seventeen years ago) link

harkonen are not very good, in my opinion. Shai Hullud seems to be the best of the Dune bands but they don't really exist anymore. I bought that Harkonen and was seriously disappointed. I heard they were supposed to do a split with Shai Hulud but ended up not for whatever reason.

I don't know if you'd like it but here goes:

TRR11 Nero, "Dune Concept Album" CD
This CD contains one of the strangest ideas I've run across lately... an insane, angular, aggressive soundtrack for David Lynch's failed sci-fi beast of a movie, Dune. Trust me, though - as goofy as this sounds - this is a fantastic album. It takes more than human guts to dish out the beating that Louisville, KY's Nero gives the senses with the nearly 18-minute long improvisational album-closer, "Kwizzach Haderach." Within this track, dialogue samples from Dune are alternately buried and brought to the surface, while Nero relentlessly tweaks and hacks away at building a colossal, disturbing drone. It's absolutely maniacal - which is the best way to describe Nero. With guitars, bass, drums and vocals all armed with razors and needles, and a really scary stab at an oddball "concept album," Nero has designed an inspired piece of unforgettable mayhem.

He knows he's going to fuck up, fucking up is part of the path. That was always the downside of prescience - once you've seen it you have fixed it in place and have to live it. That's why Darwi Odrade tries not to use her Atreides prescience to sneak a peak in Chapterhouse.

yeah the idea of mastering innate human potential as opposed to technological potential is i think the master stroke of the series

otm - Mentat calculation, Bene Gesserit awareness, Truthsaying, etc. plus all the heightened physical abilities are all things that one could maybe believe would be possible were the human body and brain to be pushed to their full potential.
