Muad’Dib…Final Speech…

Muad’Dib…Final Speech…

What is it?

The YouTube video Muad’Dib…Final Speech… by the YouTube channel Paul Atreides, here is the description for this video:

Everywhere is peace…Everywhere…except in the heart of Muad’Dib.

Who is it that calls for Muad’Dib?

Help us, Muad’Dib.

Muad’Dib’s words are the wind.

They vanish…
Like water on the sand.

I’ll give you Muad’Dib’s words.

I’ll rub your faces in them!

I am the voice
from the wilderness…

And I bring you a warning.

The water we spread upon the desert
has become blood.

Blood… upon the land
which was once clean and pure.

We have provoked the desert…
Forsaken its ways.

We have succumbed to mindless ritual…

And seductive ceremony…

Placed faith in those who crush dissent…

Enrich themselves with power…

Commit atrocity.

All in the name of righteousness!

All in the name…

Of Muad’Dib.

We have fouled the nest…

And it is killing us.

But I have seen another path…

A golden path-

The path Muad’Dib could not take.

I have stood upon the sand…

And I have seen a beast rise up.

And upon the head of that beast…

Is the name of salvation…

Come to spill water upon the sand…

Come to lead us back…

To a dry and thirsty land.

Only one blasphemy remains…

And that blasphemy…

Is Alia!

Forgive me…

Sister.

…….
……
……

It’s in your hands now…

Son.

Syfy’s Children Of Dune Is Epic!

Syfy’s Children Of Dune Is Epic!

What is it?

The YouTube video Syfy’s Children Of Dune Is Epic! by the YouTube channel Quinn’s Ideas, here is the description for this video:

After the miniseries Based on Frank Herbert’s epic science fiction book dune set records for the Syfy channel, the network was eager to produce a sequel. In 2003 the channel aired a three-part mini-series combining the book’s Dune Messiah and Children of Dune. They titled the series Children of Dune. Children on Dune first aired on March 16, 2003, and was produced with a budget of twenty million dollars. Most of the original actors from the first miniseries reprised their roles in this one, including Alec Newman as Paul Atreides, Judy Cox as the Princess Irulan and Ian McNeice as the Baron Harkonnen. Saskia Reeves, who portrayed the lady Jessica in the first miniseries, was replaced by Alice Krige in this one. The Roles of Leto and Ghanima are portrayed in the series by James McAvoy and Jessica Brooks. This miniseries is the only attempt ever at adapting any books in the series other than the original Dune book, and I have to say, they did a pretty decent job considering the resources they had. In my opinion, this series is superior to the first. The first episode in the miniseries covers the book Dune Messiah, which takes place more than a decade after Dune. While the final two episodes cover the book Children of Dune, the series is 4 hours and 30 minutes in total.

Dune Lore: The God Emperor’s Greatest Secret

Dune Lore: The God Emperor’s Greatest Secret

The video above called Dune Lore: The God Emperor’s Greatest Secret by the YouTube channel Quinn’s Ideas is about some of the secrets of the character God Emperor Leto Atreides II from Frank Herbert’s book God Emperor Of Dune, which is one of my favorite books, and here is the description for this video:

This video of course will contain spoilers for the book: God Emperor of Dune. Of the many great and powerful Dukes, Barons, and Emperors of the Dune Universe none have had more impact than the God Emperor, Leto II. His eventual powers would dwarf those of even his father, Paul Atreides. His influence outgrew the guild, all of choam, even the Bene Gesserit. The great houses of the Landsraad were rendered irrelevant. He controlled the flow of spice throughout the universe, and no one moved throughout his empire without his knowledge. His prescient eye reached to the furthest reach of time, almost nothing was hidden from him. He was the most powerful human being who ever lived by far. And the most oppressive imperial dictator of all time, never before had the whole of humanity been held in such a tight grip.

But even he was vulnerable. The God Emperor Possessed secrets. These hidden vulnerabilities are ultimately the key to his undoing. The first of the God Emperor’s Secret’s which Duncan Idaho was supposedly put in charge of maintaining, was simply the fact that he was vulnerable. He was not truly a god as many throughout the human universe truly believed, he could be harmed, he could be killed.
