Simple. Real stupidity beats artificial intelligence every time

Grimey Drawer

Lovecraft was a swell guy.

He had some P cool idea about evil space entities that dwell beyond time and space which would drive mortal men to insanity with the very glimpse at the incomprehensible and utter natural disturbing nature of its existence.

But that was a loving age ago. Personally, I was thinking recently you would just have to scroll on to the wrong website these days to find something that would ..well .. drive mortal men to insanity with the very glimpse at the incomprehensible and utter natural disturbing nature of its existence.

So I gots to thinking, what would it be like to combine the two? Post your versions!

For my part...I present to you ...Incel-yigggoth

FUN FACT Lovecraft was also racist as gently caress, and the big horror twist ending in at least one of his stories was that the main character was half-black.

Sorry you think a racist is cool, OP.

he grew up as a sheltered and self-loathing nerd because of his weirdo mom who kept telling him he was a monster and other kids were afraid of him. later in life he ended up marrying a jewish ukrainian woman, which helped him realize he hadn't been raised very well.

he died poor and in pain, much like the rest of his life. go on, read about him, it'll make it easier to understand why he sounded like such an rear end in a top hat.

he's cool as a weird hosed up anomaly, in the sense that he created all these stories which had pretty interesting premises compared to other pulp science fiction of those years.

in "the rats in the walls" the protagonist's cat was also called friend of the family man

quote:

When the story was reprinted in Zest magazine (1950s), this name was changed to Black Tom.

I actually really like Lovecraft despite having issues with some aspects of his work, but LOL that he wrote something so blatantly racist that it was considered unacceptably offensive in the 1950s.

lol I always imagine him fuming and shaking when he wrote "the horror at red hook"

quote:

Lovecraft's single-room apartment at 169 Clinton Street in Brooklyn Heights, not far from the working-class waterfront neighborhood Red Hook, was burgled, leaving him with only the clothes he was wearing. In August 1925 he wrote "The Horror at Red Hook"

quote:

Lovecraft referred to the area's immigrant population by referring to Red Hook as "a maze of hybrid squalor".[3] He spelled out his inspiration for "The Horror at Red Hook" in a letter written to fellow writer Clark Ashton Smith:

The idea that black magic exists in secret today, or that hellish antique rites still exist in obscurity, is one that I have used and shall use again. When you see my new tale "The Horror at Red Hook", you will see what use I make of the idea in connexion with the gangs of young loafers & herds of evil-looking foreigners that one sees everywhere in New York.[4]

Lovecraft had moved to New York to marry Sonia Greene a year earlier, in 1924; his initial infatuation with New York soon soured (an experience fictionalized in his short story "He"), in large part due to Lovecraft's xenophobic attitudes. "Whenever we found ourselves in the racially mixed crowds which characterize New York, Howard would become livid with rage," Greene later wrote. "He seemed almost to lose his mind."[5]
