Just in case...
- anyone is interested, I posted a link to Bowen
Studios, the creators of the Lovecraft bust, as wall as a
very fine Cthulhu statue based on a painting by Steven
Hickman.<br>They are quite hellafuggin'cool. Here's another link
to a medieval weapons recreation company known as
Museum Replicas Ltd.<br>For some peculiar reason they
have a small Cthulhu statue as well. I suppose in some
odd, winding way you can figure the connection through
Robert E. Howard. But I think that's kind of a stretch.
Maybe someone in their purchasing department reads HPL.
Either way, it's an okay
statue.<br><br><a href=http://store.museumreplicas.com/cgi-bin/www11650.storefront/ target=new>http://store.museumreplicas.com/cgi-bin/www11650.storefront/</a><br><br>Go to the Books and Decorations. I think it's on the
first page.<br><br>Say, does anyone read Hellboy by
Mike Mignola?<br>If not, I highly recommend yall do
so, as the Lovecraftian influences abound.
<br>Incidentally, to those who do not know, Hellboy is a comic
book. <br>If you're just curious and don't really want
to try and look for back issues, as well as spend
the $, I recommend just getting the trade paperback.
I can't remember how many there are, but call
around at your local comic shops, they should be able to
help.<br><br>Here's a question before I leave.<br>Now, Deep Ones are
solely saltwater creatures, and if I'm not mistaken not
all people from Innsmouth or with the Innsmouth look
turn into Deep Ones.<br>My question, or questions
actually, are;<br>1. Is the transformation into a Deep One
based on your proximity to the ocean?<br>2. Is this why
there are no Deep Ones in Indiana?<br>3. Why do you
suppose they are only saltwater based? the Great Lakes
are tremendously deep, especially Lake Superior. Why
not have a strain of freshwater Deep Ones? (there are
freshwater sharks afterall.)<br>4. Orange whip?<br><br>Well,
just postin' to post.<br><br>IamOne38
I completely understand your connexion to the
Lovecraftian/Sumerian/Babylonian current of magick. I myself am a
practitioner of Lovecraftian Magick.
The Simon Necronomicon actually does hold authentic
Babylonian/Sumerian references within it, but alas, that was because
the person who wrote it (His name escapes me at the moment, but I am
fairly sure that he was the owner of the Magickal Childe [?]
bookstore in NYC) wrote the fake grimoire with precisely that in mind.
At any rate, yes, the Simon Necronomicon as well as all of the other
purported Necronomicon are indeed not legitimate grimoires as far as
they claim themselves to be. That is, they are not the Necronomicon
as put forth in HPL's works, but that does not make them any less
If you have not already and would like some good resources on
Lovecraftian magick you should visit the Old One's Sanctuary
http://www.stormloader.com/sanctuary . Unfortunately, you cannot
download or copy any of their texts but if you really want them I
have a way to procure them for you.
