    Anyone know of any good Dune-related podcasts? I've found a few that I'm enjoying so far. Spice World Really great format: Two hosts, one of whom has read the series several times, knows the expansions, the Dune Encyclopedia, and in-universe lore; the other host has never read the series and knows very little about it. Each weekly episode covers a chapter in the first book. It's fairly new - only six episodes at the time of this post - but it's a really good listen. It's a lot of fun to listen to someone discovering Dune for the first time, as well as more obscure knowledge from the other host. Riding the Sandworm Seems to be a sideline from a fellow who normally does a sports podcast, who had wanted to talk about Dune for a while. There are only two episodes so far, but the host is very down to earth and interesting to listen to. Any other suggestions?
  2. Haha, good strategy. I've been watching RuPaul with her without demanding recompense, so it's high time I called in that favour.
  3. I've only seen the first four or five episodes - we were watching it with another couple before quarantine started, and haven't figured out a stream sync schedule yet. What I've seen so far is pretty uninspiring. I wasn't expecting pure gold, especially after seeing Disco. It's not terrible, it just seems somewhat disconnected from the nostalgia it desperately tries to throw at you.
  4. I think Duniverse and Fanfic, but I could be remembering wrong. I suppose it's my own fault for abandoning my post.
  5. We just finished re-watching Community (we had seen everything but the last season back in the day). Currently, we're watching Schitt's Creek. Not sure why I waited so long to check this show out. I'm a big fan of SCTV and its alumni, so a show with Eugene Levy and Catherine O'Hara should have been a no-brainer for me. @exatreide I'm jealous of your B5 watchthrough. I'm trying to get the girlfriend into the idea of watching it, but it was tough enough to get her into ST:TNG a few years back, and she's not having The Expanse (unfortunately - I love what I've seen), so getting her to try B5 with me might be a tough sell.
  6. Anyone had a chance to play the Gale Force 9 remake of the old Avalon Hill Dune board game? I've played a few games, and it's complicated as hell, but a lot of fun overall, and very thematic.
  7. @Edric O I check in one or twice a year but hadn't posted until now. Now much going on right now for me, unfortunately. Was working as an app developer, but was let go at the beginning of quarantine. So now I'm basically just sitting around. What happened to my moderatorship? And my avatar??? Someone's got some 'splaining to do.
  8. My mom has a kid and she doesn't recommend it.
  9. Bored an unemployed from the plague, and thought I'd do my regular eight-year check-in.. How are all you dumb idiotfaces doing?
  10. Really? The screenshots I had seen of this (There were some from the rooftop at the beginning, and some from the prison level) were really well-done.
  11. Nice! Looks very promising. I remember trying to find the music from the Dick Tracy NES game for the longest time when I was little. And here it is, interestingly enough, composed by George A. Sanger, A.K.A. "The Fat Man" who did the music from The 7th Guest.
  12. How disappointing. I was really looking forward to this.
  13. In the latest episode of South Park, S15A13 "A History Channel Thanksgiving" a character says "He who controls the stuffing controls the universe".
  14. Hmm... not a bad idea. I haven't read Dune in a long time, myself.
  15. Added House Corrino: http://vanguard3000.deviantart.com/art/Corrino-Flag-258462439 MrFlibble: I've been thinking lately of giving that one an update. I still like it, but I have another, more fluid symbol idea. Still working on that damned Ixian one though. I don't really want to do the Vernius Helices...
