GrouchoGandhi asks: Who has the biggest Dick?

The movie A Scanner Darkly opens on July 7, and to celebrate, GrouchoGandhi wants to show you his Dick.

A Scanner Darkly is not the first book by Philip K. Dick (PKD), genius/whacko pulp masterpiece science fiction writer, to show up on the Big Screen, but it is the first one to show up under its original title and to show up with the storyline more or less intact.

Previous PKD-inspired movies include Schwartzenegger's 1990 Total Recall, which was based on Dick's short story "We Can Remember It for You Wholesale," and 1982's Blade Runner with Harrison Ford, which was based on the novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

If Hollywood would only look at more Dick, there would be a lot more good movies being made.

But I digress.

GrouchoGandhi has exposed his Dick to the world
— 30 full inches of his Philip K. Dick love: his bookshelf. See photo above.

He's sponsoring a contest 'cause he wants to see yours. The winner gets bragging rights for having the biggest Dick.

If you don't have any Dick, you need to get some Dick.

  1. An amusing article, but... what does this have to do with Masonry? Maybe I totally missed the boat on this one. ???

  2. What does it have to do with Masonry? (Choose none, one, two or three.)

    a) A true Mason cannot compartmentalize his life, and say, "this part of my life is Masonry, and this is not." To a Mason, everything is Masonry.

    b) It is a Masonic quality to help one's friends. In this case, I'm helping my friend by promoting his webpages on topics that interest me.

    c) Masonry is about changing one's life for the better. Reading novels and short stories by Philip K. Dick will definitely change your life. Read a foot or two of PKD and see if I'm not correct.

  3. Good Lord! What does Philip K. Dick have to do with Masonry?

    Read on, Brother!
