Jude's name

Joe's first novel.

Jude's name

Postby jinxnb on Tue Jun 26, 2007 4:43 pm

I am feeling pretty dumb. I am trying to figure out the pun for Jude's name, but I can't. At one point a character or the narrator mentions something about it being a play on words or something. Any ideas?

Do you mean Judas' Coins?..the reference to the money Judas got for ratting on JC Superstar?

My boyfriend told me that..I know he doesn't look real smart but, becuase he's Living on a Prayer he knows a bunch a shit about the Bible.

Didn't Joe cover how Jude got his name at some part in the book?!? I'm pretty sure he did, but I'm also pretty sure I'm too damn lazy to go back and find it. Anyone know off the top of your head?

Oh, and val? The Bon Jovi's gotta go. After his acting in "Vampires: Los Muertos", I don't see how you can keep a straight face while looking at his pic.

Yep, I'm lazy too, but I thought he mentioned why he was named so.

Beatles reference? I dunno...

No, it wasn't the Beatles - that would've pissed me off enough to remember. It was something about Judas and all that...

Fuck. Now it's going to drive me crazy 'til I go find it. I guess it's a good thing I have no social life, and thus, no one to annoy with my obsessive need to know things.

Janice! Are you a Beatle hater??? I actually grew up on Elvis, but was converted after marriage. :twisted:

Nah, I grew up on the Beatles, and at my advanced age, I'm a bit burnt out. :roll:

That's right, right? 'Judas Coyne=Judas' Coin.'

Beyond that.....I dunno?

I'm so sorry! I have never heard of that movie, but I could always tell that I should never, ever watch that Valentine movie or what the fuck movie he was in or it would ruin my masterb---I mean imagination. :oops:
I will find another...Shane get ready..I'll probably mess up and need help! :D

judes name

Postby dragonfly on Mon Aug 20, 2007 10:09 am

jude explained his name when he recounted the story of how after his father beat his mother with the handle of a gun, his father said to him 'come here boy, i'm not mad at you". and jude kissed him. he went on to say that he betrayed his mother with that action.

thats my take on it anyway.

Even Wikipedia doesnt have a "difinative" answer! I get the Judas part, but I'm not convinced by the Coyne-Coin part...?

Also, I am quite offended that he hasnt added me as a friend on Myspace! It's the only reason I logged on to it! Wah! :cry:

Don't feel bad, ratgirl. I haven't been added yet, either, and I asked a while ago. He's a busy guy and I'm betting MySpace isn't near the top of his list of things to do these days, with the release of 2CG and the signings.

I'm trying not to take the rejection too bitterly..... :P
