Newest Mindgasms Book Club Chat with Parker and the Woke Centrist AKA Dusty Cubes AKA Dustin Cubit on Dune Messiah, the second in the original series by Frank Herbert. Various factions conspire, scheme, manipulate and murder to take control of the intergalactic empire from Paul Atreides, a duke who became a God and fulfilled the Fremen prophecy. Even the power of prescience that Paul AKA Maud’ Dib gains from the spice called melange, which comes from the planet Arrakis, does not allow him to see what happens for certain in the future. All that he can know is every possible outcome. He cannot be sure about which one will definitely occur. So, he still has to figure out the best path for success to avoid all of his enemies plans for taking away his power. His dead friend and body guard named Duncan Idaho comes back as a ghola, which is a clone made of biological material. One of the people schemeing against him is trying to get him to produce an heir with the descendant of the former ruler of the empire, from House Corrino rather than Atriedes. Paul’s Fremen wife named Chani wants him to have a child with her as well. Who will win the game for power, control of the spice on planet Arrakis, and the intergalactic empire?
Check out my last Mindgasms Quickie that is my reaction/review of the new Dune movie, the latest adaptation based on the famous classic sci-fi fantasy novel by Frank Herbert, the first in the original series. I compare the film to the book along with other movie adaptations, and evaluate the pros and cons of the changes that were made, particularly in relation to the characters. I also talk about the fact that there has to be, and it has now been confirmed, that there will be at least one sequel. This wouldn’t work as a standalone film, especially since it ends in a major cliffhanger, and only covers about the first half of the novel.

Mindgasms Book Club Chat with Parker and the Woke Centrist on Dune, the classic science fiction/fantasy novel by Frank Herbert about Paul Atreides, a Duke’s son who becomes the Duke, then fulfills a prophecy and becomes the messiah who unties the tribal dessert Fremen against the Emperor of the intergalactic empire. There are power struggles between House Atreides of Paul’s parents, and House Harkonnen. Paul’s mother named Jessica has basically the equivalent of magic powers, and has secretly had a major influence on Paul’s bloodline. The struggle for power between House Harkonnen and House Atreides largely has to do with control of what is known as spice, or melange, on the planet called Arrakis, also known as Dune. The Fremen culture who Paul unites have influence over the massive sandworms that produce the spice or melange. The reason that there is such a huge power struggle over control of the spice is that people use it as fuel for spaceships in interstellar travel. It also is a drug that be consumed to get you high, it extends your life, and it can potentially give you the magic power of prescience, which is the ability to see multiple possible outcomes in the future. In addition to the book, we compare it to and explain how it has influenced other science fiction and fantasy novels, movies and shows like Star Wars, Star Trek and Wheel of time. We get into what are essentially prostitutes with sexual superpowers called the Honored Matres, and discuss how the first Dune book is connected to others in the original series by Frank Herbert, along with the prequels written posthumously by his son, Brian Herbert. We also somehow go off on several long tangents about subjects like reality T.V., Kim Kardashian’s sex tape, Kayne West, Lady Gaga, and sketchy drugs that people have created like huffing helium from balloons, sniffing glue, and jenkem, which is a drug involving huffing the fumes of fermented shit.
