1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    All I could think about when I saw Prometheus was that ancient explanatory myth popularized by Stephen Hawking, the one about the earth sitting on turtle sitting on another turtle, etc., all the way down to the bottom of the universe. Where did human life come from? Oh...right. From another human who flew to Earth. :facepalm:

    Here's a Ted Hughes movie in the meantime. (no images the first minute).

    Ted Hughes. :inlove: I'm slowly trying to memorize his Selected, so tasty and so sweet.

    Is that silent film (Cthulhu something) any good ? It's always mentioned as one of the best Lovecraft adaptation but ...

    I have a couple short story collections. The supernatural/horror/sci-fi stuff, especially toward the end of his life is the best, and what he's most famous for.

    Good stories:
    "The Whisperer in Darkness"
    "The Dunwich Horror"
    "The Colour Out of Space" (this is probably my favorite)
    "The Haunter of the Dark"
    "Dagon"
    "The Rats in the Walls"
    "The Call of Cthulhu" (of course)

    Good novellas:
    The Shadow Over Innsmouth
    At the Mountains of Madness
    The Shadow Out of Time

    EDIT: I should also mention that most of the work of Lovecraft's descendants (e.g. those working on the Cthulhu mythos) is not generally very good. August Derleth just wasn't crazy enough, to be honest, but his "The Lamp of Alhazred" is actually quite good.

    God I loved HPL when I was in highschool, he created such a unique and vibrant world. When I first read about Miskatonic U I really wanted to go there, then I found out it was fake :(


    Can't believe his stuff hasn't been made into big blockbusters yet

    Not only is Zero Dark 30 so far absolute trash + distorted history + excessive scenes of torture, it features the worst actor in the history of modern film, none other than Take Shelter's Jessica Chastain

    Does atmosphere, and its weight upon man, and his psyche, count for nothing!

    I'm excited about this one, actually...even though it looks more like a Larry Clark film. :facepalm:
