April Fools 2021: Breaking News! Dune: The Cline(s) Cut
Today we have a special episode just for you. Nate is kind of a big deal in the editing world and he got his hands on a few select pages of a Dune re-write that they're doing RIGHT NOW. You heard that right. A Dune re-write. As in the first Dune book by Frank Herbert being re-written! Ben thinks maybe someone is just messing with Nate but nobody listens to Ben anyway. Listen for yourself and you can be the judge. Just remember: you heard it here first folks!
Neuromancer by William Gibson
Hang on to your microsofts, Console Cowboys, because we're jacking in to William Gibson's genre defining sci-fi classic Neuromancer! This is one Cyberpunk that doesn't disappoint.
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline Part III
Konnichiwa all you Otakus out there. I hope you're ready for the final installment of the epic sci-fi hit: Ready Player One! Join Ben and Nate for the dramatic conclusion we were all waiting for, in theory. At last Wade has a plan he executed 3 weeks ago that will come in at a crucial moment to turn the tide of this battle. But will it be enough? Will Wade win the 400 billion dollars, or will he realize that the true prize was the friends we got along the way? Both. It's both. He gets the girl and the money. What do we get? We get to watch our lives crumble away as we're bankrupted by the very rich twenty-something we helped put into power. If there's a metaphor in here, you can bet Ernest Cline drove right past it in his DeLorean! Be sure to check out our blog where Ben tells you why he hates this book in exquisite detail and listen until the very end for an ultra super secret Easter egg hunting clue. Good luck hunters!
