“lovecraftian horrors in specimen jars”


Nice site, that looks like a home-furnishings catalog to me. But then, I’m always disappointed that “Bed, Bath, and Beyond” lacks anything that is truly “beyond.”

    Awesome. Not quite as good as the recreation of the briefcase from ‘Call of Cthulhu’, but still cool. Of course, I dont think much is as cool as that, being the huge Lovecraft fan that I am…

    My catholic high school years just flashed right back at me. I swear, I must have gotten into Lovecraft as a subconscious rebellion against religion by way of nasty “Old Ones.”

    the first time i saw a sign for bed, bath and beyond, my brain registered it as: Deathbed And Beyond, which seemed like a great name for a store. to this day i continue to imagine that’s what the store is called, and wonder what curious items they must stock for use beyond one’s deathbed.

    But, wouldn’t it be cheaper for you to just bring home left-over failed mutant hedgehog-squid hybrids from your lab instead of buying them from others?

    Here’s some lovecraftian(sort of) youtubes:


    notice in this one they stretch it across the poor bastards pupil so he gets a good up close look at his little friend.

    These kinds of things are why I never travel outside the states…

    ahh, for Lovecraft fans, i just ran across this yesterday:

    http://thepiratebay.org/details.php?id=3385136

    there are not only txt and pdf’s of most of his works, but some excellent mp3’s of popular book-on-tape versions as well, and even complete documentation of many RPG table-top versions of the mythos as well.

    I listened to the mp3 of “Call of Cthulu” last night while soaking in the jacuzzi. fun stuff.

    note also that all of lovecraft’s works prior to 1923 are public domain.

    the rest appears contended between several different parties at this point, and most consider it also public domain (see the wiki entries on the subject).

    oh, that collection also includes a copy of the “Call of Cthulu” graphic novel, illustrated by John Coulthart.

    great stuff.
