HOWARD PHILLIPS LOVECRAFT

Post by HARDKORE »

This person is good. I always liked the fantasy fiction style that he writes with. There would be no quake without him. He also gave us the necronomicon and that book itself seems to have a cult following. Do any of you all like reading his work?

So that's what HP stands for? Also, wasn't he the guy who gave us Cthulu? If so, awesome; I like that instrumental by Metallica. Plus squid-gods are just awesome.

He gave us lots of neat things. Old deep ones, Dagon, Cthulu, Nyarlothopet (I suck at spelling so god knows if thats right.), ectra. A bevey of cheesy b-class movies have been based on his stories, and some blame him for the modern horror/suspense genre though Poe was doing it first. (And others, Poe's just the only one I can think of who's still known.)

I'm a big fan of his work, though I tend to dig the breaking of the human mind ones more then the creeps and crawls. Not to say I don't love the autre of the creeps and crawls, but a large part of what sets him aside from other authors to me is just the.. snapping of a rational mind and how he portrays it. I mean my personal favorite is Mountains of Madness for the most part, and its a good portion of both sides.

The Dunwich Horror was good. Cthulhu seems to have its own following.

People also follow Eris based on a pamphlet that tells you to never believe anything you read. I mean its one of the 5 commandments in theory.

I love golden delicious apples! Yum. Or was that red delicious? There's so many varieties, I forgot which.

Golden Apples and Delicious Apples are technically separate. That being said I love my golden apple, though I'd recommend against doing some things I've seen suggested with it!

It's called Golden delicious. They kinda aimed for that type of reactions, you know?

If someone gave me a food item and called it golden delicious, I'd be very suspicious.

Cthulhu is a hybrid freak. Its like 4 or 5 things made into one. Wow. I thought this was going off topic. Anyways the guy who runs the apple orchard around here would probably never read mr lovecraft.

There's some interesting paper models of Cthulhu floating around out there. Never read anything by Lovecraft, by the way. Just wanted to share one of my old hobbies.
