When I read DUNE as a kid I'd imagined that the Atreides wore semi-formal military inspired dress, sort of nautical-futurism, harkening back to TE Lawrence and the colonial role they play. Harkonnen were more ornate, dressed in a more baroque or even victorian style - more cummerband and pocketwatch, lots of gold. Fremen I'd imagined wearing black thawb with accessories by g-shock.

Atreides wearing techno armor isn't my choice, but it totally works.

COVID hasn't hit that hard here, wish they'd release it where cinemas are open.

People's dismissal of the virus just downright baffles me. Everyone's got some reason why it won't effect them and life should just continue as such. A bunch of high ranking people in the US government just got COVID and still people are saying nonsense like this.

There's just not that much COVID here in Sydney. Theaters are open, but sessions are staggered and people are encouraged to wear masks. Ushers are organising the rows so that no one is sitting too close to a stranger. Most bars and restaurants are functioning in some capacity.

I didn't know the poster's point of origin, which is why I specified where I'm coming from. I don't know where the lines are where places are "free of COVID" and "not free of COVID". "Pandemic" spells it all out imo.

The reason it makes me mad is that you can't visit dying loved ones in the hospital and I've lost two in the last month. Regardless of what country they live in, it's comparable because we didn't used to have a problem with the virus where I am either. And once enough people had pointed that out, everyone got really carefree and loose about it. Now we have a lot of cases.

I don't know where you are either, i'm guessing the USA. Things are different outside America. Sorry you've had a rough time with COVID.

Her version would have scrubbed the colonialist stuff...

I would take anything she says about colonialism to be instantly wrong, remembering that she has two (2) children with Elon "African Emerald Mine Heir" Musk.
