Ultra busy at the office so these Dune prequel audiobooks Ridgely keeps playing may actually end up killing me. Would pay for guerrilla bootleg parodies . . . right now Leto I is having his gap year on Ix seeing how the industrial proletariat live and I'm all, bring on Breakfast at Tiffany's of Dune where kids from the bucolic planets come to Metropolis for a look at the bright lights and end up changed. The twist: the Audrey Hepburn of outer space is actually a religious communist robot so the eating disorder is assumed. Leto Atreides: The Gap Year Diaries. For all I know this is Twitter right now. EDIT oh no this is just that Dune as Gossip Girl I've been demanding for years. Will no one rid me of this turbulent dream?

Why does Ridgely keeps playing Atreides slash fiction at the office?
Paolo Greco @ 2019-04-22 18:32:42
Also, does she know about this place?
Scott Martin @ 2019-04-22 19:08:35
When things get this hectic the "office" doesn't get a chance to move more than four feet from her yarn photo editing station where the Atreides slash fiction (!!) happens. I'll send her the link.

@Paolo, Atreides slash fiction, that's hilarious!
Scott Martin @ 2019-04-22 21:34:38
UPDATE the kind of day I pour the coffee into the tea cup and am now having flashbacks to juvenile "hyper caff" experiments that all tasted horrible. This is where guild navigators come from. This is how we live, swimming through an orange vector cloud.

@Scott, _Breakfast at Tiffany's of Dune_ reminds me. Last night, I came up with something along the lines of _Lost In Space on the Event Horizon_. The long lost Jupiter 2 is found, but when explored, it turns out that the Robinsons are not only alive but have been turned into demonic monsters. Kill or be on the receiving end of Prometheus-like suffering!
Scott Martin @ 2019-04-22 22:26:38
Love it! How do I make a heart on here
Richard G @ 2019-04-22 22:31:08
Dune Gossip Girl - I always suspected Caladan was Planet New Hampshire. Or am I thinking of Gilmore Girls?
Richard G @ 2019-04-22 22:33:22
Hmmm the Atreides of Arrakis ...like the Massachusetts Bushes winding up as Texans.
Richard G @ 2019-04-22 22:37:40
And have you seen _Vice?_ Lynne Cheney totally comes across as Bene Gesserit.
Scott Martin @ 2019-04-23 02:55:44
We spend many hours in this house debating where in Vacationland Caladan is. A nice rain forest planet with good sailing conditions, robust animal fibers, natural wood beam construction.
Ridgely S @ 2019-04-23 03:08:02
What if Maine but with rice paddies? And mutant bulls.
Scott Martin @ 2019-04-23 03:08:21
I got it now! WILD rice. And moose.
Paolo Greco @ 2019-04-23 08:48:30
@Ridgely you are here! :D
Handy Haversack @ 2019-04-23 22:43:03
And in flamingos large enough for a man to ride, and you have the Hawkmoon mashup Dune has always needed.
Handy Haversack @ 2019-04-23 22:48:48
Also, Scott, check your e-mail . . .
Richard G @ 2019-04-24 02:28:40
...or the Final Fantasy/Dune mashup we all knew was inevitable. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=uq8fbUCSiMI

Tonight, I wrote 468 words of the Lost In Space on the Event Horizon thing from scratch. I've set the scene, from this point onwards it's going to be mayhem!
