my name is a killing word

oh my god. dune is on tv right now and i can't go to bed. i can't. stargateis on the channel just below, so during commercials i get to switch to other sci-fi staple. though, seriously, it doesn't hold a candle to the 4-hour glory that is dune. there are the scenes that are in the tv movie version of dune that are missing from the dvd movie version and they're some of the best scenes in the damn thing! like every scene with shadout mapes. what's that about? and the supercool fremin fight. i already own the movies, but i'm completely desperate for the extended version to become available. anyone trying to think of a birthday present for me, think no farther! yee-hee-hee! kat only watched a little bit with me because she has work, which is sort of depressing, because i so love getting to watch this with others, but i never get to see it all. but before she left she made a brilliant comment.

Mentat Piter (to Jessica): Desire for you clouds my judgment. That is not good; it is bad.
Katherine: I'm a math geek and I'm not getting any!

sadaf, who hasn't even seen star wars wishes to learn the ways of teh sci-fi geek. i think she would benefit greatly from sitting in on one of our conversations. we can sometimes hear the guys across the hall having conversations, or mostly yell at football. we yell at sci-fi. "oh my god! it's wormtongue!!" "i can totally see it!" this movie is great for the famous cameos. we have "al" from quantum leap, and captain picard, and "trey" from sex and the city, of course, "wormtongue" from lord of the rings and the dr. from alien:resurrection, and sting. sting! it's a veritable buffet of references. but i will introduce sadaf to star wars first. it only seems fitting. and shit, it's shorter. i think next weekend, i get to introduce her to proper dorkdom. she's already a programmer, this must be done. anyone interested in helping is welcome to join.

i'm going to continue to watch now and try to think up drinking games based on the movie. it would be too easy to do an "every time they say 'spice'" thing - wouldn't last halfway into the movie, and the thing is damn long. maybe every time they say "thumper." every time baron harkkonen makes you queasy. any time someone mentions "the prophesy." hmm, damn, this is actually really easy.
