  1. Oh, I wasn't disagreeing. (I was trying to fit the quote into a repudiation of useless prequels. Star Wars prequels=creative choice, Rogue One=abomination) I remember when I first looked into the Herbert/Anderson books. Sandworms of Dune Hunters of Dune The Butlarian Jihad House Atraides House Corrino House Harkonnen To name a few. Ummmm... what happened to progressing the history of the universe? I recall wondering. I've never read any of them. Reliable sources have advised against it, and the titles really are revealing. It's all trying to lean on stuff you already know because the authors don't know what to do with the real narrative. Disgraceful. The God Emperor's golden path has been lost, I'm afraid.

  3. I'm very wary of this Bene Gesserit spinoff business. It smacks of Brian Herbert's proclivities, but perhaps they're doing a post-tyrant thing? Young ghola Idaho could be fun. Meanwhile Sheeana on Rakis is a much better product than that endless "you were born a girl" show Amazon is so desperate to make me watch. I get the impression they're going for a cheap Birds of Prey kinda thing, though, and it'll come off feeling like Robert Jordan rather than Frank Herbert. Which... yikes! I mean I'll give it a try of course, but I judge swiftly and without affection.
  4. Me too, but then I burst out laughing like a psycho while taking out the garbage twenty minutes ago.
  5. Fifty years of lesser interpretations and needless qualifying to dilute the power of the term. I think anti-hero is precisely accurate. Paul operates exactly on a heroic trajectory but everything he precipitates, and his motivations for doing so, is the opposite of a peaceful ending . Accept that Han Solo is not an anti-hero and the term once again has gravity. The Worm is an anti-villain, if anyone. Imo. A monster presented as savior pretty much throughout. Buttressed by the way he wants to rewrite history through the stolen journals. He wants to make himself the hero through sustained villainy. Pretty fun!
  6. Umm, y'all know I was just joshin' with the OP right? I suddenly feel like Jeb! Bush. Please post.
  7. "The proximity of a desirable thing tempts one to overindulgence. On that path lies danger." But by all means, indulge away at my dispensation. And so shall the fruits of your hearts become mine, better suited to the needs of humankind than the princeps of those whose needing orbits the lessons of the long consigned, their darknening irredeemed within world's bounding. And yours yet borne by the shadow of a soul unkempt to divining light.
  8. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
  9. There's nothing quite like having a huge (unsupportable) hunch on a guy on the wire but being unable to justify dropping anyone else for him. I just spent fifteen minutes frowning at my TE group for having too much potential and not enough production. Trouble is the guy I'd drop one of them for is, uh, a deep scout kinda situation. Maybe I should just Pony Up and drop Randall Cobb.
  10. How does the IR thingy work? I don't like change.
  11. I don't regret pulling the defense as much as I regret that Lamar looked atrocious. My logic for doing so was sound. That if Mahomes and friends played well enough to win, the defense would be giving me negative points. I simply failed to account for how lackluster Lamar might play. Live and learn.
  12. Aaarrrrgggghhhh! Any garbage yardage by lamar would have won it for me.
  13. I expect you, as the statesman among us and premier of this Fantasy Football Alliance to treat with me gently in my hour of doom. I spoke in pride. Mahomes has relearned me that a woman's proper disposition is demure.
  14. @JJ Lannister One.. Two... Jace is coming for you
  15. There has been a trade. Adam Theilen for Joshua Kelly for James Robinson on Monday.
  16. Three of my WR's failed to score 4 points. Witness me.
  17. Henry for 1 year Buffalo at $3 for 3 years Tom Brady for 1 year Johnathan Taylor at $16 for 3 years Calvin Ridley $12 for 4 years Michael Pittman Jr. at $1 for 4 years Drew Brees for 1 year Matt Brieda for 1 year Nick Foles for 1 year Baltimore at $2 for 2 years Tarik Cohen 1 year James Robinson at $5 for 3 years Frank Gore for 1 year N'Keal Harry for 1 year I think that's everybody.
  18. After you all stand in the wracked ruin of my victory on Tuesday I want y'all to know that some of my EXPERTly picked WR talent is quite available for trade. Admittedly I want for RBs. When you are prepared, prostrate yourselves at my feet and be graced with the fruit of my foresight. Alternatively if all of my guys suck remember that we're all friends here and you want to have mercy on me.
  19. Odell Beckham Jr - 41 (3 years) Russel Wilson - 19 (3 years) Mike Williams - 19 (1 year) Austin Hooper - 1 (1 years) John Brown - 1 (1 year) Mark Andrews - 1 (3 years) If it's permissible and no trouble I'd like to renege and keep John Brown at $1 and Philly at $1. I mean I can cut them if I need to. ETA: clarification, I mean that if I'm allowed to keep them it costs me literally nothing and I can cut them later.
