I like H.P. Lovecraft, but man, come on

oh by the way
fun fact
HP Lovecraft is a HUGE FAN OF ADJECTIVES
the more syllables the better
sometimes it can make reading his writing very difficult
but luckily i discovered a trick
which is that you can replace almost every single one of his adjectives
with "spooky"
without any loss of meaning


This is the most awesome thing I've read today. The rest of his blog is pretty sweet too, if you share my foulmouthed irreverent sense of humor. (Check the "smorgasboard" section for the archive. I'm also fond of his retelling of Anansi and Tiger's story from American Gods.)
