In the first episode of Peep Show one character shows David Lynch's Dune DVD in the case, and mentions wanting to watch it.

Which Season?

Funny how the advoCADO comic works on the pc from my parents. It's a good one.

Perhaps I should do some updates that I find usuall worthless.

 

But then again. I watch this forum with Firefox. Firefox is kinda late with updates.

 


 

One of my colleges has a grandchild called Dune.

Dune looks beautiful. It seems to be more common each day.

Some suggest Doon? Looks like Doom, wouldn't do that. ;)

Dunne

That should sound completely differently, shouldn't it? Something like /dʌn/ I guess.

Oh yes, I love American Dad ^_^ Maybe not as much as I like Family Guy but still loads of fun (it reminded me a lot of early Family Guy episodes when I first watched it).

That Geidi Primes albums i keep hearing about seem interesting enough. Anyone heard some of it and would recommend it to others?

In any case might try to acquire it anyway.

 

Not sure if it's been previously posted but Iron Maiden made this song name "

" which is totally about Dune.

I've become a fan of her music. Check out some of her songs on youtube to see if you like her style of music.

EDIT: I think most/all of her geidi primes album is on youtube.

I remember seeing an atrocious bad/amateurish film named Hirokin: the last samurai (!!!) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1693679/?ref_=sr_6). The whole thing is about this dude on a planet inhabited by both humans and some other human species. The other human species has very obvious blue veins on their hands and they're outcasts mostly because of the humans. Also the planet is ruled by governor Griffin who hates the samurais (the blue-veined dudes) and wants to exterminate them. Also the whole fighting takes place with melee weapons.

 

It rang a bell for me :)

Pffhahaha. After he drank the Water of Life:

"Ugh. My mouth tastes like I made out with Thufir."

Sublime. I think I read this same guy's Idiot Run of Fallout 2. Same style, anyway.

In Call of Duty Black Ops 2.

 

When you fly with the dragonfly in multilayer. You get the medal "Red Baron" after the round ends.

I think that's a reference to the World War One ace Manfred von Richthofen nicknamed by the Allies "The Red Baron" due to his distinctive red triplane.

Not to the fact that you can fly with it?

So is the one in Dune based on that too?
