“OHHHHHHHH The Ringworld Is Unstable…” (I decline to apologize.)

OHHHHHHHHHH..

…The Ringworld is unstable,

But to film they still are able;

Bezos raided G-oT’s stable,

And that’s good enough for me!

Now, I admit that I have been sore

About how we haven’t heard more,

But, heck, friends, “you thay that you’re Thor?”

Still at last, to film they’re free.

Taylor did the film Rag-nar-ock

and I heard GoT also did rock;

Guess then that lots of [cough] and [cough]

Will be out there for you to see.

No, I’m not being facetious!

There, “rishathra’s” quite ubiquitous;

(It means “sex outside your species”)

So it’s canon, if you please.

Though distracting, I’m confessin’

I like Hominid gals, sans dressin’ –

Call it the Human Lesson.

…No, the other one, you see.

Will I like the show? Here’s hoping.

If I don’t, I’ll end up moping

Until we’re all deloping

From our blown-up Galaxy.

    Indeed, a lot of really good stuff – E. E. Smith for another – is out there for the pillaging.

    *blink* That rendition of Ringworld has a serious problem with the sunlit sections.

  • JustDave says:

    If Amazon was really smart, they’d have a preliminary strategy plotted out for a Known Space Cinematic Universe.

    Certainly there’s plenty of stories out there that could be made into movies. I mean, there’s probably enough material just from the Man-Kzin wars books to keep them busy for a good long while.

      Eh.
      Great stories, but not very visual.
      And narration has gone out of fashion, so listening to Louis Wu’s internal monologue providing context is a longshot at best.
      It would be a really tough adaptation to do well.
      .
      The David Lynch version of Dune is probably the best-case scenario.
      And the Paul Verhoeven version of Starship Troopers is more likely.
