Posted 7 December 2011 in by Catriona

ME: You’re getting your sources a bit mixed up there.
NICK: I prefer to think of it as blending.
ME: Blending?
NICK: It’s a melange.
ME: Is that what you got from your cultural-studies degree? ‘Melange‘?
NICK: No. I got that from Dune.

Huh, and all I got from Dune was “Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Shai Halud”.

You’re one up on me: all I got from Dune is “Man, is this book dull.” Also something about religious prostitutes.

That was more from the movie. I read the book during my Summer backpacking around Europe and I don’t remember much about it – except protracted explanations of Muad’Dib.
