That Innsmouth Look

One used mass media to promote his barely-disguised virulent racism and horrific visions of humanity subjugated by incomprehensible, formless entities. The other was H. P. Lovecraft.

I wonder what Zuckerberg named his cat, though?

  1. Every time I see that mug shot of Lovecraft, I can't help but think it looks like the face of a man clamping his jaw down to contain the stick that's so far up his ass it's threatening to pop out the other end.

    One produced things which, although deeply flawed, had some worth. The other founded facebook.

    If you need to wash the taste of that out of your mouth, I present Leeman Kessler for your consideration. A man who is

    - an HP Lovecraft impersonator
    - the actual mayor of Gambier, Ohio
    - not Mark Zukerberg
    - a dear friend of mine (fwiw)

      I still haven't seen his show yet, but I was always aware of it during the TGwtG/Channel Awesome days (before we found out how terrible Doug Walker and his circle really are).

      The closest I've come to hearing his Lovecraft impersonation is when he did it as part of Linkara's (and Leslie Rice's) haunted house radio play reuninting a lot of the former TGwtG/CA personalities.

    Also in case you're not aware, only one of them has his own Japanese idol group.

    Watching [adult swim]'s Hallowe'en marathon of Rick & Morty when this episode came on. I totally forgot this particular line... spoken right after a cartoonishly-evil character gives his equally evil company a public name-change:

    Remember how in 2016 we all said that Trump made Lex Luthor look tame by comparison? Zuck has somehow, some way made Lovecraft's monsters look even-tempered compared to what he's done with Facebook.

    Oh right, we have to call it by its new name: Jukt Micronics, where you can always expect honesty.
