an interview with H. P. Lovecraft on a postcard
"H. P. Lovecraft" Category
Tintin’s other adventures finally revealed:
Tintin at the Mountains of Madness
Tintin and the Reanimator
Tintin In R’Lyeh
Tintin In Innsmouth
And wow. Just wow.
Because back in 1983, Cheap Truth editorial staff was succesful in getting ahold of H. P. Lovecraft and squeeze an exclusive and post-mortem interview out of the Master of Untold Horrors. Totally scrumptious:
It’s certainly one of the best portraits of HPL I’ve had the chance to come across. Everything in it is an ode to Lovecraft and his works. A very atmospheric piece of art!
I read his stuff pretty young and it really, really scared me. He taught me the pleasure in being scared, which is a useful tool in life. The Wikipedia entry is good but you really need to read his work to get it. It’s totally unique, though you’ll likely recognize something of his work in contemporary horror movies and books. His work is incredibly relevant and fresh seventy years after they were written.
I should warn you, this author changed my outlook on life. He expanded the shadows deeper and made sure I understood my mind would totally break if I could actually see what’s there. He certainly makes things more interesting.
You must be thinking: “Yet another cheesy nerdy Cthulhu t-shirt!” But you are wrong this time because this one is sort of special in its own special way. It’s actually more than just a t-shirt. It’s a door to omniscience, to the eternity of unspeakable horrors, to the sad truth of our long lost future battle for the survival of humankind. Wow.
And it’s only 10$ over at Shirt.Woot.
It also comes with a wonderful description too:

Wear this shirt: to Innsmouth.
Don’t wear this shirt: in front of Ceiling Cat. HE R JEALOUS.
This shirt tells the world: “What’s that sound? Could that be Lovecraft spinning in his grave?”
We call this color: Great Old One Heather Grey
