I was guessing it was from the many Call of Cthulhu resource books. Turns out its actually just made by some guy who claims they are pages from the Necronomicon and is selling them on ebay. It's really disgusting how people mine Lovecraft at this point. He never intended for any of his stuff to be used this way.

interesting considering the real Necronomicon had to be made with flesh, bound in human Sinew, written in blood, and had a "Crossroads of Hermes" which was a metal cross used to kill people with tied to the cover
The only way to get rid of it is through Burning, but it'll always pop up somewhere else

I'd tell what its put me through, but I burned it into my body to escape its chains

No, I mean like from an artistic perspective. It's like the problem with the aliens from Alien or the Borg from Star Trek (or the White Walkers, or pretty much any mysterious Big Bad.) The reason cosmic horror works in the Lovecraft mythos is because of the very careful way HP plays with secrecy, misdirection, and the fundamentally unanswerable quandries of existence, all to create a horrific alien otherness. When you take that alien otherness, give it a name, a history, and a stat block, then the actual 'effect' of 'Lovecraftian-ness' you tried to put in a bottle you have destroyed by that very process. It shows a fundamental misunderstanding of why people like Lovecraft in the first place as well as artistic incompetence, but pretty much everyone who has followed in Lovecraft's path has done that which shows that pretty much everyone who likes Lovecraft doesn't 'get it' the way he intended (despite writing quite a lot about how he saw his own output.) This is compounded by the fact that he was largely forgotten after death and rediscovered later, so it's not like this was an evolving fan-interpretation that grew stronger than the original. It's like a different people discovering the remains of a forgotten civilization and play acting their rituals without learning to translate their language.

There's something about people cashing in on the works of artists particularly those who were poor/died poor in their lives that particularly irks me. But in this case it isn't even cashing in on Lovecraft's work. Like it isn't actually taking shit somebody else wrote and then making money off their work. This is someone else's work, and there's nothing wrong with being inspired by another artist.

Not related to the content of these images, of which there are approximately I think like 70+ or something because I downloaded a ton of them and they absolutely work in perfectly in a Lovecraftian way. The person who made these did a wonderful job of it because it perfectly evokes the sense Lovecraft was trying to convey and I judge it on its own merit.

He was a product of his time, and despite his racism his works and all ripoffs of it are either too abstract and longwinded to be anything but mildly disturbing, or so over-the-top that you could basically pit Godzilla, King Kong and the Cloverfield monster against him for a good ol' fashioned Kaiju battle.

I like the story of the Yellow King more, any way. Nothing like a ball dance being disrupted by abject horror and madness.

Nah, he was a deranged racist. He had a near breakdown because of black people on the subway, he wrote venomous diatribes. "Products of the time" might not have questioned the divide, they might have been okay with having an 8 year old servant boy as long as he was a "Negro" but they might also remember that servant boy fondly and have thought him sweet. Plenty of people accepted that social order sure, but most did so without getting angry at the encroaching jews turning Brooklyn into a literal gate to hell.

There is ignorance and there is fear/hatred and often it's a bit of both. No one is perfect, everyone always gets some shit wrong but Lovecraft was a hater. Perhaps not a radical for his time, but far out. He is quite explicit and unambiguous in some of his stories. There is no allegory, there are simply evil foreigners with powers bourne from corruption. There is casual "these races are inferior" talk.

However what better mind to write those stories? All those different unknowable lifeforms as pure horror? Far more like likely to spring from the mind of a xenophobe. Man being insignificant in the cosmos? Well that would be particularly chilling to someone who holds their race as precious. His racism permeates his stories, Call of Cthulu has "mulattos" being bullet resistant and bringing the touch of death for example. I read a compilation of Lovecraft's stories recently and enjoyed how imaginative it was. But at the same time there's a few bits where you have to appreciate "those things he's saying are not normal and okay". Then you move on and continue enjoying it. Or don't if you don't enjoy his stories.

Interestingly Mountains of Madness subverts that when he actually humanises some of the "Monsters" towards the end.

His works inspired a lot of stuff. I agree about the over the top nature of it though. I enjoyed it but it wasn't for the horror as much as "where is he going to take this next?".

Lovecraft was married to a Jew? Are you kidding me?

Real talk: what does this mean for his works? What does it mean for his workings, assuming that some/all of the entities he describes are actually real (I've heard a lot of occultists make that case).

Given your stance towards the Jews (which I assure you, I share, and then some), what are your thoughts on Kabbalah, and specifically the Qliphoth. A lot of "Anti-Semitic" (not a thing) occult communities toss it all out, but many claim a lot of it pre-dates Judaism, and was just co-opted and perverted.

No, this is well documented fact. His fucked up relationship is where most of this sprang... and also why ypif you look at public jewish opinion, they just shrug and laugh it off then make a joke about their ex wife or some other tasteless humor.
>what does it mean
That there are healthier ways of managing bad relationships, but that this one makes better reading?
It's a complete perversion of the works that were common in the region, that has been split several times by those with different agendas. Pretty standard for abrahamic religion in general, though it's progressively become more and more perverse. Check out Isaac Luria, his followers literally want to unmake reality through perverting natural laws (not arguing the sanity or chance of that plan working.) and they're the most popular sect in the west now. The kabalah center of sanfranshithole is adherent to his perversions, and that's the one all the hollywood types like madona joined.

Actual jews were a multicultural multiracial group of slaves, until their masters constructed a religion to control them when they no longer had the means to do so with force. Look at when they changed their alphabet away from an indo-european script to an assyrian one. That would be their second reformation.

Sumerian isn't Indo-European either you dummy, it's a language isolate. The closest relationship that can be established with another language is with Akkadian, which is another Afro-Asiatic language.

Even if hieroglyphics descend from cuneiform that still doesn't change the fact that everybody in the field of linguistics agrees that Semitic languages are Afro-Asiatic in origin.

No just no mate you can stop talking shit right now.

>>Semitic languages are Afro-Asiatic in origin.

LIterally no one is saying that. You better start posting your sources cause youve made yourself look like a dickhead.

Akkadian is not an afro-asiatic langauge, what the fuck even is that? How would that be a thing? The asians and the africans got together way back in time ? From 2 different points of geography? No. We know how language developed. It all stems from PIE. (PROTO INDO EUROPEAN)

Spanish, English, Portuguese, Hindustani Hindi and Urdu, Bengali, Djiboutin, Punjabi, German, Persian, French, Italian and Marathi. Hundreds of other living descendants of PIE include languages as diverse as Albanian gjuha shqipe, Kurdish, Nepali, Tsakonian, Ukrainian , and Welsh. All part of a single language family, called the Indo-European languages, and they all ultimately trace back to a single, ancestral language, which was spoken centuries before writing was invented.

Afro-Asiatic lmao.... Please.

>Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Linguistics
>Afroasiatic languages are the fourth largest linguistic phylum, spoken by some 350 million people in North, West, Central, and East Africa, in the Middle East, and in scattered communities in Europe, the United States, and the Caucasus. Some Afroasiatic languages, such as Arabic, Hausa, Amharic, Somali, and Oromo, are spoken by millions of people, while others are endangered with extinction. As of the early 21st century, the phylum is composed of six families: Egyptian (extinct), Semitic, Cushitic, Omotic, Berber, and Chadic. There are some typological features shared by all families, particularly in the domain of phonology. Languages are also typologically quite distinct with respect to syntax and functions encoded in the grammatical systems.

>Some Afroasiatic languages, such as Egyptian, Akkadian, Phoenician, Hebrew, Arabic, and Ge’ez, have a longtime written tradition, but for many languages no writing system has yet been proposed or adopted. The Old Semitic writing system gave rise to the modern alphabets used in thousands of unrelated contemporary languages. Two Semitic languages, Hebrew (with some Aramaic) and Arabic, were used to write the Old Testament and the Koran, the holy books of Judaism and Islam.

I think you misunderstood me. I was not arguing that modern hebrew or sumerian were indo-aryan languages or writing. Actually, in regards to modern hebrew, I would argue that it is a modern construct that was intentionally created in recent history. It was a dead language ya know.
