All I say is that I think it is damned unlikely that anything like a central cosmic will, a spirit world, or an eternal survival of personality exist. They are the most preposterous and unjustified of all the guesses which can be made about the universe, and I am not enough of a hair-splitter to pretend that I don’t regard them as arrant and negligible moonshine. In theory I am an agnostic, but pending the appearance of radical evidence I must be classed, practically and provisionally, as an atheist.

Also who else think its funny Lovie has a strawberry ice cream in my icon? His favorite was vanilla [and coffee
but that is extremely hard to get outside of New England]- in fact I’m quite sure he hated strawberry! Well, he didn’t leave any hints as to what could be inside the Re-Agent formula, so it’s not like he’ll ever be alive again to complain about it.
A few days ago, I made a post asking for help with developing a weekly segment for this blog. I’d like to thank the following three people for their input:
1. catatonicfrommiskatonic: “*clap* Pumped already. Say, what about something like this? (You) Select a Lovecraft work, post a pic of a creature, a location, or some other aspect from the selection, tell of some background on the story, and list all/any adaptations and/or references to that particular work.”
2. crankthulhu: “Maybe a weekly Lovecraft creature/species showcase? You could incorporate some of the August Derleth deities if you run out.”
3. thevillainstillpursuedher: “Mythos abhorrence of the week.”
I’ve decide to do somewhat of a mix between all three ideas listed above. Every Monday [starting next Monday, I’m still ridiculously busy] I’ll pick a Lovecraftian/ Derlethian deity or general mythos [ex. think Cthulhu for deity and the Cthulhu Cult for mythos] and post art work of the creature/ mythos; relevant locations; background; potentially also inspiration [ex. Lovie has listed happenstance for the zany Arab and his wacky Necronomicon] and all relevant adaptations and references concerning the topic.
PLEASE OH PLEASE feel free to submit a “case study” you’ve done; part of one you wanted to finish, but couldn’t be bothered; or even just an idea for one I could do. As incentive, maybe the Saturday before I’ll make an open ask box post where you can just type in/ comment an idea instead of having to use the submit/ ask box.
**I’d also like to stick in a thanks to theorajones who liked that post I made earlier today concerning my recent partnership with Starbucks, as I was really nervous about how I did on the floor and coming home to see someone had taken the time to read the update and give some support with a note made me feel really good about my little nervous self.
