Our Halloween Costumes [30 Sep 2007|01:38pm]

friggasgirl
When my 3 year old's pre-school teacher asked her what she was going to be for Halloween, she proudly stated that "Mommy says I'm going to be an Abomination." (Well, she did have trouble saying "Abomination" but she said it well enough for the teacher to ask what she was dressing up as. LOL

The Dune Compzine [12 Dec 2005|03:57am]

The Dune Compzine

The Dune chronicles, written by Frank Herbert, have fascinated me for ages. Although I have not indulged in the recent prequels published by Brian Herbert and that other guy, I did read the 6 original novels many times, as well as large chunks of the Dune Encyclopedia. The novels are great works of science-fiction and I have the utmost admiration for Herbert.

I'm sure that there are many more Dune fans in the zine community and beyond, so I decided that I would put together a Dune Compzine. You can send in for publication any article, fanfiction (no cross-over with other universes please), drawings/paintings/pictures, jokes, limericks, analysis, criticism, anecdotes, influence the novels have had on your life, fantasies of being one of the characters, and any other things you want to create about dune that is mass-reproduceable. I currently intend to make the zine half-letter sized with black and white photocopying, so you can either just send the text of what you want to publish, or make the layout for your page yourself. The cover will be in colour, probably laser-printed unless someone comes up with a cool silkscreen, which would be way better. I currently don't plan to include a disc, but should someone come up with a cool video, I would consider adding multi-media entries as well on a disc, either CD-R or DVD-R depending on the space needs.

Of course, as the sole spice-intoxicated navigator behind this project, I reserve the right to not publish anything, but hey, just make it interesting!

Please send all entries before January 31st, 2006, to:

Dune Zine
Great Worm Express Distro
P.O. Box 19013
360A Bloor St. W.
Toronto, ON M5S 3C9
CANADA

You can also email entries to: dunezine (A+] tabnet (d0t] ca

Please forward far and wide.

I have realized my ultimate sign of Dune geekieness.

I'm pregnant. I got so just before a really bad breakup with said baby's father. He is most displeased with me for being pregnant. I want to invoke kanly. So I've decided insted to name my child should it be a girl Ghanima. Spoil of war seems the appropiate name to me.

This puts owning a fist edition hardcover dune to shame I think.

Awesome! A Dune community! Im stoked..

I started liking Dune when I was like 8 years old(im 21 now). My aunt had the movie and I would watch it alll the time. I first read the book when I was 14 and since then I been obsessed. I swear in my past life I was a Fremen. I dont know. I just feel oddly connected to that universe. I actually took up fencing at one point, cause I wanted to be a swordmaster(sometimes i even have fantisies that im Duncan Idaho). And I do martial arts, cause im searching for the weirding way, haha..

Okay, you guys can make fun of me all you want. Yes, I am a dork..


Also, this might sound strange cause im a huge Dune fan, but I havnt read any of the books after Dune Messiah. I have been too scared that they arnt gonna live up to my expectations. Should I go ahead and read them? Will I not be dissapointed? I've read the prequals and to be honest they were great, but they didnt live up to my expectations. They were missing that 'Frank Hurbertness' Dune had..

Im done.. Nice meeting you guys! See ya around..

Yo,

I'm about halfway through Herbert's fourth Dune book, God Emperor of Dune.

Got some questions maybe you can help me with.

1.)I am interested in the cosmography of how Herbert's vision of galactic Empire is effected by spacing, ie, where is Rakis in relation to our solar system/Ix et cetra

2.)What of sapien alien life in the Dune universe? Are there any allusions? Any suggestions?

thanx in advance.

Hey everyone. I just started a Dune RPG at a board http://melangevisions.proboards23.com

I'm really in need of members. Most of the canon characters are open, the only ones taken so far are Paul, Alia, and Stilgar. Also you can make up your own character. Please at least give it a look!

in my dreams as a child
often there was a worm
monstrous and murderous
it saw and it knew
crushed me a thousand times
while i slept those nights
