I woke up today with one of those moods of needing to get the occult out of my system, and that’s what led me to Girard, who is lowkey an occult writer. I happen to still be in that mood, so, now, why not just go right to Lovecraft?

Who can beat Kenneth Grant as far as secondary commentaries? Pff!! Sad! That’s already old news to me though, and I recall Houellebecq has a book I’ve only skimmed on this unrivaled occultist of the 20th century, and he’s someone I vaguely trust.

It looks like Stephen King wrote the intro to this

King could probably write something better than Man in the High Castle if he wanted to. Whether you agree with his politics or not, he’s the living Lovecraft of our time. It’s similar to McCarthy being the living Faulkner. We take these things for granted. It’s like with AC/DC, everyone’s too much of a hipster to admit what the best is, and has to play devil’s advocate. The most horrifying thing that could happen in 21st century America so far is if Stephen King decided to out-do Man in the High Castle. Alas alas. Ohoho imagine McCarthy adapting Blood Meridian to more recent politics regarding the border. Yeah, Dust in the Wind plays, they’d be swept away in the sands of time if they did that.

Back to Lovecraft though, he’s so first-nature to me that I don’t talk about him, I just embody him. One of those cases. You haven’t read him? Better than Poe. Better than Scream or any other horror franchise you can think of. I’ve seen a few people now speculate that his pineal gland simply secreted excess amounts of DMT, and I believe it. His skeleton needs to be exhumed and studied in my opinion. You don’t feel that impulse very often with writers from America (who Hamsun was right about).

If you haven’t read him yet the best I can do is suggest you start where I started I guess- “The Color Out Of Space”. I’ve found his stories in particular are more suited to be heard aloud, and if you click here and ctrl+f “Julie Hoverson” she has the best recordings I’ve ever listened to.

So just a note on occultism in itself- when I’m speaking to you about that, the word is not talking about what I’m talking about. We are confined in our own egos in ordinary reality right now. Consider how a minority of the population never has one lucid dream all their lives. Some people, if they’re lucky, have two robust occult experiences in their entire life. Talking about the occult is not the occult, we are in a mundane context. Lovecraft puts you into that mood where you remember when that happened to you. Because we tend to write it off, because people would think of us as loons if we talked about it as anything more than a momentary delusion. For instance, are you looking at me like I’m a loon right now? Read Lovecraft for a few hours and you might change your mind.

Just looking through the bibliography of Lovecraft I think of this gif

What do I recommend?? Just go with the material from the 1930s. You will not be the same person after you read that. I’ve written before how there are literal cults that have formed and continue to exist today that surround this stuff. (See Bertiaux, another fringe Lovecraftian.)

I’m trying to get to the actual substance of this Houellebecq text and keep getting sidetracked scrolling through this King essay

Now that is a scary thought is it not.

The most talented people in the world (I even know a few ANONS like this) have to sacrifice their talents for………


Jesus Christ, my tourette’s syndrome is acting up again.

Huh, really?

Lovecraft’s mature achievements have never been more splendidly validated than they are by Michel Houellebecq.

I’d take McCarthy’s view on academics on Melville over academics on Melville. It’s not brain surgery.

Look at this, I keep telling you fools to read the Greeks

I see no other way that America can surpass Ancient Greece. A SEVEN year old writing a poem about the Odyssey??? Let’s just make this the normal thing, okay? It would be best for browns, women, probably jews too.

Let’s zoom out for a second too- Houellebecq=Frenchman. PKD is also popular in France. It’s because they’re (disproportionately) highbrow snobs who know what’s good.

When I stop and think about it, Lovecraft contains neech himself in a horizon. The various writers I speak of here are Lovecraftian entities. He sets the context in a sense.

Do you still find them scary? My intention was always to show you they aren’t real monsters. The people who censor and twist them are the ones you should find scary.

Elista, Bjerknes, are these names you can look at without being afraid?

They are, like Lovecraft, writers who contain everyone else.

Want to talk feminism or chozun peepul or BLM? That all exists within Elista and Bjerknes’ horizons. If you want to escape you have to confront them. In conclusion, these various writers I bring up (Choinski perhaps most poignantly) are the equivalent of Lovecraftian gods.

Heh I’m just ditching this Houellebecq study, he doesn’t know Lovecraft.
