I like that Lovecrafts brand of cosmic horror can be summarized as humanity being "way harshly insignificant".

I dug the narration.

Also, I had never really thought about how little actual plot there is in that story.

...How did they find a teenage girl who can't use slang correctly? I like the idea but it sounded like it was written by a 50-something-year-old who had a vague idea of how young people talk.

Actually I realize how stupid it is to say "use slang correctly." It just sounded... weird, off. Still funny though. :)

The plot is basically Investigation -> (findings) -> DOOM!, with the findings being a nested series of investigations/dooms. And as they pointed out the implied outer level of this nesting being that you have investigated Call of Cthulhu by reading it and ARE THEREFORE DOOMED!

Watch out for jostlings from nautical looking negros.

It sounded like a teenage girl from about 1987, although I'm unconvinced that anyone in real life has in all of recorded history ever said "gnarly." I think this was invented by Hollywood. I don't know. It may have been, like, a southern California thing?

I liked New Zealand being labeled "Middle Earth".
posted by Mister Moofoo at 9:53 PM on August 13, 2010


People do and did say "gnarly". I was nevertheless astonished when I moved to Southern California and people were actually using the term "bitchin'", without a trace of irony.

The narration was great. I did chicks, though, so maybe that biased me. It's a nice contrast to Lovecraft's style, which may sound best being read aloud by Vincent Price.

I swear I read all the Lovecraft books I could find when I was in high school, but I just don't remember much about any of them. I know I read Call of Cthulu, but ....the memory..is just gone.

The thing I tend to forget between readings (and which the HPPodcraft guys called out recently) is how kind of anticlimactic the climax is. "Oh noes! A horrifying manifestation of timeless and cosmic evil! I know: I'LL HIT IT WITH MY BOAT! Problem solved!"

OK the art in that Hey there Cthulhu video was just damaging. Giger on some bad acid, if that's not already a thing.

Saying 'like' every, like, twenty seconds is, like, so over.

And been on the blue more times that I can remember but always worth another link to, the HPLHS film version of Call of Cthulhu, filmed in glorious Mythoscope, is an essential but for anyone who enjoys Lovecraft.

You'll find that, when you get serious about summarizing them, most stories don't have a lot in the way of plot.
