Are you talking about something similar to De Profundis?  I have a copy although I've never played.  See: http://rpggeek.com/thread/715498/the-call-of-correspondence-cthulhu-by-mail

I would love to do something similar, I'm not sure how it would work, if you could explain a little it would be helpful.  I've only played DnD 4ed...

As an expecting father, I would totally love the lyrics to the "Old McDonald/Great Cthulhu filk" that Chris sand on the most recent Silver Lodge.  I hope my child-to-be will be just as under appreciative of it!

I looked around.  I'm not sure what nasty reputation exists.  Seems to all be post-singularity and futuristic utopianism out there based on searches.

Francis Fukuyama (of 'the end of history' fame) has described transhumanism as the most dangerous idea currently existing in the modern world.  See his article in Foreign Policy magazine: http://www.foreignpolicy.com/articles/2004/09/01/transhumanism

There's been a few pieces I've been meaning to write, but just can't find the creative energy to do it.  My biggest wanna-be project is a left-wing response to Atlas Shrugged, where, after all the capitalists disappeared, instead of the world collapsing, the 99% of humanity took over the means of production and created a democratic anarchist-communist society.   Here's a sample:

-------------

Prometheus Unchained

Chapter One: News from Nowhere

“Who is John Galt?”

“Who cares!” the rapturous crowed cheered.  Emma could hear the festivities a block away from Saccos' Bar.  Her dogs barked rabidly.

-----------------------

I also have some non-fiction work I've been dreaming up, in particular a article about left-wing Catholic trade unionists and the relationship between left-wing political resistance and the sporting world.

You all have to go here: http://ca.ign.com/articles/2012/07/07/slender-is-pure-horror   and download this free game called SLENDER.

"Based on the Slender Man mythology popularized through a Something Awful thread, and further spread through forum chatter, YouTube videos and even Minecraft, the game’s tall, unrelenting creature pursues you through the inky black of a fenced-in forest. Slender doesn’t bother telling you why you’re there or if it’s possible to escape. You’re given a standard video game goal – find eight pages – but the terror unlocked by discovering and collecting the pages obliterates the task’s comforting familiarity."

I've played it.  We got up to 6 pages before....

If you where a tree what kind of tree would you be?

Do you think anyone else should undertake this kind of project (reading each and every lovecraft story out there)?  What advice would you have on that.

Interesting but a little bizarre. Did we really need to be told this?

http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/mermaids.html



It's in response to the airing of Mermaids: The Body Found on Animal Planet.  Kinda like those big foot or ghost shows, but with mermaids(they call it "docufiction").  See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mermaids:_The_Body_Found

A part of it is about The Bloop, which is a mysterious noise recorded roughly around where R'lyeh is  Shocked

waiting for two books to come in from the library:

All is Grace: a Biography of Dorothy Day by Jim Forest
Love Sex with Robots: The Evolution of Human-Robot Relationships by David Levy.

Nice article. I'm a little perturbed at Scott's opinions on the ancient astronaut theory, though. It seems fueled by the notion of trying to fill an uncomfortable vacuum. Just because the earth was devoid of humanity for billions of years doesn't mean there MUST have been someone else here before hand. He seems to completely ignore the successful dinosaur occupation of many hundreds of millions of years, for instance Smiley     

Yeah, the Hollywood-types love that ancient astronaut stuff.  Of course HPL seemed to love it too - at least as a plausible possibility.  But if you take it subtle, you can get a nice Battle Star Galactica thing going on.  If you go to far, you end up creating a new religion. 

Wasn't Battle Star Galactica about Mormonism?

I had to go "wait a sec, Rob Zombie wasn't born in the 20s, how could he have seen White Zombie?!"
15  General Category / General Discussion / Re: Prometheus on: May 08, 2012, 11:43:37 AM

You know, it's funny, the more I heard about that project the more I disliked everything about it.  I'm just not sure "Big Hollywood" will every be able to do an adaptation of HPL. 

here's another article that is kinda related to that (not saying that Prometheus is going to be shitty, mind you, but the idea that thoughtful, artistic movies are harder to make in the studio system is something to think about): http://www.buzzfeed.com/katienotopoulos/movies-are-shitty-because-you-keep-stealing-them
