He's everything you want, he's everything you need. He's everything inside of you that you wish you could be. He says all the right things at exactly the right time, and he means something to you but you don't know why.

And it only flows from Arrakis. Spoiler alert: no worms, no spice. Every time they tried transporting worms (to Salusa Secundus mostly, the Emperor's hellish training world for his elite Sardaukar), the worm died pretty shortly thereafter. I think they managed it in some of the later books, but honestly I couldn't finish Heretics of Dune. 

David Lynch's Dune gets a lot of crap from critics. The Weirding Modules were kinda, well, weird, but I'm willing to give Lynch the benefit of the doubt on that. They didn't have the special effects at the time to make the fights really representative of the elite craziness the Fremen, Sardaukar, and Bene Gesserit are capable of. Sting, as much as I generally dislike him, played a solid Feyd Rautha. Kyle McLachlan was a bit old as Paul.

Dune isn't about the individual details, anyway. It's about the "what the hell just happened?" 90% of it is inner monologues. And occasionally inner dialogues, what with the prescience and genetic memory and all that crazy shit. That's why I love it. It's so totally bizarre, but 100% serious. I've read the first three books more times than I care to count. It's considered the Lord of the Rings of sci fi for a very good reason.

That's an awful lot to write just for the one question about Arrakis vs. Caladan (which was the Atreides homeworld before they were granted control of spice production on Arrakis), but that's how I roll. I'll see y'all back here next week! Thanks to coming out, and a special thanks to all the QMs from Seattle that came to visit!

He's everything you want, he's everything you need. He's everything inside of you that you wish you could be. He says all the right things at exactly the right time, and he means something to you but you don't know why.

It's quite impractical to make a comprehensive list of all things which are not Free Willy, but I can at least give some general guidelines. First and foremost, Miami Vice is not Free Willy. Don Johnson is not that stupid kid. Philip Michael Thomas is not an Orca. And there is, of course, absolutely no involvement at any point from Colin Farrell.

A little closer to Free Willy, let's talk about Flipper. You remember Flipper, right? The Lassie of the sea? Flipper was a dolphin, not an orca, but orcas are actually members of the dolphin family (delphinidae). Flipper was also free to come and go as he pleased. He just always came back, because Elijah Wood kept falling down wells or whatever happened in that movie version. How come it's okay to keep dolphins in captivity, but not orcas? I'm not saying it's because orcas are black, but I'm not saying it's not, either.

SeaWorld isn't Free Willy, either, but it's basically boned now because of Blackfish (another thing which is not Free Willy). The star of Blackfish is a serial killer named Tilikum. Don't let the name "killer whale" fool you - Tilikum is actually a murderer whale! Three deaths can be laid at his fins, and he's still roaming free! Okay, not technically "roaming." Or "free." In fact, he's been imprisoned his whole life. I guess SeaWorld doesn't focus too much on rehabilitation these days. They could teach him to eat tofu or something, though. Maybe start doing whale yoga?

The important thing is that all these things are still not Free Willy, and anybody who thought Free Willy was involved in the visual round last night was clearly not thinking straight. Weirdos.

The quiz happened, and that's a thing we're all happy about. Good job. Review complete.

Now for something important: IT SNOWED TODAY! Hell yeah. I'm looking forward to winter. I mean yeah, it's supposed to get pretty hot again soon, but snow means it's moving on into fall. Football is here, and skiing will be here soon. And while we can huddle together nicely for warmth in the loving embrace of the Moe's Quiz on Thursdays, weekends are now full. Ski Saturday. Football Sunday. Take Monday off work to nap.

Also, Fridays off so I can use that day to drive up to the mountains. I'll need enough money to pay for the hotel rooms (or buy a condo), so I'm gonna need a new job. Quizzing doesn't support that kind of lifestyle. Anybody who's hiring, let me know.

I do feel bad about hyping up football so much, though. It's people like me that allow Ray Rice to get away with what he did, the Ravens to justify keeping him, and the NFL covering up messes for their players. The only way to stop it is to hurt them financially, but I'm paying for DirecTV Sunday Ticket and have already been to a game this year. I'm the worst.

But that's sad, so let's think happy thoughts. Ski season is almost here! Most of my excitement is because I just recently started skiing and only started getting good at the end of last season, so I really want to get back out there and do more. Soon, though. So soon....
