You're Dune!

by Frank Herbert

You have control over a great wealth of resources, but no one wants to let you have them. You've decided to try to defend yourself, but it may take eons before you really get back what you feel you deserve. Meanwhile you have a cult-like following of minions waiting for your life to progress. This would all be even more exciting if you could just get the sand out of your eyes.

i'm Dune eh? Never read it. Crappy movie, though. What's up with Kyle MacLachlan's chin anyways?

i got this quiz offa Thoroughly Modern Monyca. i just stumbled onto her site and i like it. i'd congratulate Monyca on being sworn in to the New York Bar, but her blog has no comments. i decided to blogroll her, since there's not enough lawyers on my blogroll. (i'm being facetious, of course. There's seven on there that i know of, not counting Publicola, who probably should be a lawyer.)

The David Lynch movie wasn't just terrible, it was absolutely criminal: one of those things that really, really should never have been made. Do read the book if you have the time; I think with your interests in history, politics and religion you'd enjoy it enormously.

I read the first four Dune novels in the space of about a week, on recommendation from a friend. The first one was enjoyable, the second OK, the third was bad, and the fourth was flogging a dead horse. I understand the franchise is now more than double that...

The original was brilliant, though I barely managed to get through the second. I never tried the third and beyond

More than just flogging a dead horse, God-Emperor of Dune was obviously written on considerably more than enough drugs to kill most people. It's almost worth getting there just for the near-metaphysical weirdness, even if it's also pretty awful. The books that follow don't even have that going for them, especially the new ones written after Frank Herbert's death, which are unmitigated garbage (or, um, so I've heard).

You're Les Miserables!
by Victor Hugo
One of the best known people in your community, you have become something of a phenomenon. People have sung about you, danced in your honor, created all manner of art in your name. And yet your story is one of failure and despair, with a few brief exceptions. A hopeless romantic, you'll never stop hoping that more good will come from your failings than is ever possible. Beware detectives and prison guards bearing vendettas.

Who knew???

You're One Hundred Years of Solitude!

by Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Lonely and struggling, you've been around for a very long time.
Conflict has filled most of your life and torn apart nearly everyone you know. Yet there
is something majestic and even epic about your presence in the world. You love life all
the more for having seen its decimation. After all, it takes a village.

Annie, you keep talking about Publicola being a lawyer and you're likely to hurt his feelings. He works for a livin', dagnabbit!

Thanks for the congrats! Now I'm going to have to figure out how to add comments...

I always figure that no one reads my blog, so it's nice to find out that someone does. Thanks!
