BOTH KAKI KING AND I LEARNED THE HARD WAY this week that not every single person in the crowd has read or seen DUNE.

BUT SHE IS STILL incredible.

That is all.

wait, i thought everyone has read dune. i just thought i was the only one who tried ot muddle through the sequels. ugh.

she is an amazing guitarist, thanks for sharing that. kind of reminds me of stanley jordan in that you'd swear, as a listener, that all that sound can't be coming from that one guitar.

oh, and congratulations on successfuly embedding video!

Hey that's not how you play a guitar!

...but I like it.

RM said...

Quite good; thanks for passing this along.

And now I no longer feel so old or weird for still listening to Michael Hedges.

Perry Gerakines said...

I'm sure Gurney never played like that!

That was so good it's almost like after the Butlerian Jihad, a school was set up for the training of musicians with machine like coordination and precision alongside the Mentat, Bene Gesserit, and Navigator schools.

Of course this analogy fails for several reasons, and for that I apologize.

Firstly, when we consider that she's living at the present date, we see that the only way for her to be able to access skills available in the future would be for her to partake of the essence of Spice and become a Kwisatz Haderach (Setting aside of course the problem of having both Harkonnen and Atreides bloodlines). Secondly, we know this too is impossible, because women can only become Reverend Mothers.

Finally, the whole analogy comes crashing down, when we realize that Arrakis (sole home of the Spice) is not accessible to humans given current technology, and that the whole Dune saga was invented by Frank Herbert, and is entirely imaginary.

In short, I have no idea idea how she learned to play the guitar so well.

I have neither read nor seen Dune. I do understand, however, that there is a worm.

There is a special place in hell for music video directors. And just how many insolent looks do we need from the amazing Kaki (who should also forsake that godawful lip-piercing)? But the music and the skill... oh, yesssssss.

Almost didn't recognize the quote there. I should probably reread Dune. And good lord, I was not aware that it was physically possible to play like that.

:-D Shea said...

That's the connection.
The worm in the Tequila IS the connection. That explains so much.

Sorry, God Emperor of Dune is one of the greatest bits of genre work ever created.

End of line.
