1-2-3 Lovecraft!

| 20. August 2013

Today is the 123rd birthday of His Macabre Grace Howard Phillips Lovecraft, as if this blog needed a special reason to mark his birthday anyway… So tonight, I will drink a glass of mead, pretend it is space mead (although this is actually an invention by Derleth) and begin a futile wait for a Byakhee […]

To not watch this documentary would be a mortal sin (if such a thing exists in this universe) for every Cthulhu Cultist worth his weight in Shoggoth fodder:

At the Mountains of Madness – Animated short film

| 12. November 2012

At the Mountains of Madness is one of H.P. Lovecrafts best known and most beloved works. It is actually No. 4 in my personal Top 10 of Cthulhu Mythos fiction. The first three being The Colour out of Space, The Call of Cthulhu and The Shadow over Innsmouth. Rumor of At the Mountains of Madness […]

H.P. Lovecraft’s original Facebook and the Dancing Goths

| 20. August 2011

First things first: Happy Birthday, Mr. Lovecraft. If you would still be with us today, you would be 121 years old. 121 is a very interesting number in deed… Let me demonstrate, I found the following this very night in a dream: You see, 121 is 11 squared. Eleven is 1 and 1 which equals […]

The Kawaii-Drift of Cthulhu

| 15. Juli 2011

My friend Nancy Overbury recently posed this question over at her blog: Cthulhu Fans… What happened to all the Evil? A valid question and one that has come up within the Lovecraft Community on a number of occasions. Among others, Chad Fifer, Chris Lackey and Andrew Leman discussed this on the side once in an […]
