Ah, Bil Keane. So horrible, and therefore so wonderful.

Ah, Lovecraft. So wonderful, and therefore inspires things that are so horrible.

Actually, the film fest is typically so horrible that it's good.

H.P. Lovecraft - How Brown Sauce Can Enrich Your Sexlife

I found this description of site to be beautiful:

Lovecraft's phantasm-haunted sensibility creates fun sparks when rubbed against Bil Keane's aw-shucks apple-pie sensibility. The clean cartoon lines are a semblance of order waiting to be violated by intimations of the fearfully glimpsed.

If only all Internet parodies were so delicately nuanced. The cartoon collection is also delightful. Great post!

This kicks ass, LOL. In a bone-chilling, unutterable, indescribably horrific way, straining our wits to the point of madness and beyond, of course.

I thought the peeps were somewhat creative. And seasonal.

Keane has always been chilling. His scenarios are of the most grisly description, all the ghastlier because of their frightened reticence and cloudy evasiveness. And the characters... these children - surely a race of hereditary daemons beside whom Gilles de Retz and the Marquis de Sade would seem the veriest tyros. Truly macabre.

I don't know much about Lovecraft, but this works amazingly well. Great post, thanks.

Am I crazy, or has this livejournal now been deleted? This sucks, because it was great.

Man, I wish you could edit comments, so I wasn't just talking to myself here. But I did stumble across the creator's livejournal, and it turns out we're the ones that done broke it.

I'm leaving now.

Ah, well. Yet another person stung by the notion that there is no privacy on the open internet... Too bad, though — these were great.

Seems to me she's unclear on the concept of how the Intarweb works...

If I were that clever, I would find the exposure edifying.

What a shame.

Perhaps the explanation for her hasty departure is more...sinister...than has been revealed. Perhaps her work drew attention, not from lawyers, but from...the others. I cannot say more.
