lovecraft, public domain, culture 

I find it interesting that the Cthulhu Mythos is pretty much the closest we have to a shared culture in gaming and literature. it's one of the few things that hasn't been overrun by corporate interests and (let's be honest) Disney.

I mean, yes, HP Lovecraft was a racist, full-stop. And some of his creatures reflect that racism. I get that completely. But it's telling that a mythos from the 1910s-1920s is what we get to call our own.

That much of the world worships something that fits under the vague label "god" isnt remarkable. If every culture had settled on the exact same religion independently without evidence of cross contamination it would actually be compelling.

Anybody remember when Godwins Law applied?

To the grown strait dudes bellyaching about the new She-Ra, nobody cares that you have a problem with their creative decision to not dress She-Ra like a stripper. You are not now nor have you ever been the target market for any version of She-Ra, your opinion does not matter.

Cry-Baby was a far better movie than Grease! Fight me!!!

Oh jeez, I just saw something in passing that said "what's your North Star"?

Polaris, you marketing wank. It's called Polaris, and it's your North Star too.

I wonder if I could run a PbP game over Mastodon toots...

Greatest healthcare in the world, I'm more worried about the ER copays than whatevers festering in my lungs.

There are three kinds of people in this country: people who grew up with an Italian deli, people who grew up with a Jewish deli, and people who dont know what I'm talking about. I ordered them based on my preferences.
