I am going back and heavily updating/editing many of my articles. Many images are placeholders and many articles are not completely edited. There will also be more content in the upcoming year. I have a lot to share!
I have the TV on, a Youtube video up and running, talking to friends on the computer, and texting. This is all at once and usually done between doing normal adulting things. It’s a wonder I get anything done at all.
Lately, I’ve been getting into the works of H.P. Lovecraft (again) and decided to check out some games based on his style of horror-fiction. I really like his idea that forbidden knowledge is attainable, but that a human will go mad trying to obtain it. I greatly enjoy that not all the answers will ever be available and sometimes things don’t make sense. I also really, really love that most of his stories are highly psychological. I also revel in how he peppers in things like superstitions, older-than-time fanatical and secretive cults and religions, unpredictability, fate, and a host of other things. I admire his ability to set into words a hauntingly beautiful atmosphere. There were other writers who came before and after him who were similar (Edgar Allen Poe, Stephen King), but because of the bizarreness in his writings he made up, he stands out for me.
The process of delving into the black abyss is to me the keenest form of fascination. – H. P. Lovecraft
