Happy Birthday H.P. LovecraftToday is the birthday of the father of modern horror and prophet considered by actual Cthulhu cultists, H.P. Lovecraft. He is 122nd today. And he is one of the greatest inspirations to horror writers, mangakas, comic book writers, artists and film directors since he's a big influence on Stephen King, Junji Ito, Sam Raimi and his Evil Dead trilogy, Clive Barker, Artist H.R. Giger with his design for the Xenomorph, John Carpenter with The Thing, Mike Mignola with Hellboy and Del Toro, Alan Moore,Neil Gaiman, and Stuart Gordon. Even video games such as Dead Space, Alone In The Dark, Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem, Resident Evil (Mostly Resident Evil 4) and Silent Hill. Even Internet Phenomena such as The Slenderman Mythos, Candle Cove, and SCP Foundation are influenced by his writings. And there are also the actual Cthulhu cults that see Lovecraft as a prophet. Without Lovecraft, we wouldn't have horror that isn't influenced by insanity and things that peoplHappy Birthday H.P. Lovecraft2 years ago in Personal More Like This

"Browsing through Dellamorte & Co.'s gallery is a horror lover's dream come true. Death has never looked so beautiful! The best part is that this artist casts his fabulous work and you can purchase some of these truly stunning and unusual works of art at his etsy shoppe http://www.etsy.com/shop/Dellamorteco?ref=ss_profile ." Feast your eyes on just a few of his creations:

PixieColdBorn in Berlin, Germany, Svenja Jödicke (AKA PixieCold), has established herself as an incredible artist. Painting with watercolors, inks, and markers on watercolor paper, she's able to create a surreal world filled with nature goddesses and vibrant colors and patterns.PixieCold1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
All deviations featured are available as Prints.
Eyes have always been focus of her artwork, as "they are able to tell unspoken stories."
Besides her work with watercolor, PixieCold started experimenting with makeup and photography as well, using real insects (live and dead) in her work.

Lucifer - The Fallen by *RainerKalwitz
Marble, Granite, Bronze, Silver, Gold!
Early statuary depicted one’s god’s, and since the medium is
as much the message as the visual message itself – the medium had
to proclaim: This god is as forever lasting as this stone that His
rendering is hewn out of! But all that is solid eventually melts
away into the air, even the most powerful ancient gods and kings –
As the poet Shelley so poignantly noted in Ozymandias.
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them on the sand,
Half sunk, a shatter'd visage lies, whose frown
And wrinkled lip and sneer of cold command
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamp’d on these lifeless things,
The hand that mock’d them and the

From the mundane to the surreal, these emails appear in our inboxes so frequently, messages from South African attorneys offering $10 million dollars get marked as spam without a second thought to savvy users.deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
We define spam as the misuse of communication systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately to our deviants. Typically, the content of spam messages is aimed at advertising a product that is often counterfeit or potentially malicious. With the rise of social networking, there's been an increase in more direct spamming -- companies who directly target your social network profiles.
"Over the last few years, deviantART has had a small but unfortunate stream of such abuse. Usually, it’s as easy as banning the offending members and moving on to more pressing problems, but recently something happened that caused us to re-evaluate how we handle spam issues."

Cthulhu is Still Calling
Written By techgnotic
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acq

They don't careI couldn't find a better emoticon, so I'll start off by saying I'm not entirely feeling rejected...just hurt. Upset.They don't care2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I went on the youth group's facebook prayer page and told them how I'm withdrawing from the church and although they are awesome people that I love, I don't believe in God. Only one person has responded, and it was just a "we'll miss you, hope you come back" type of thing. Like they don't understand I'm serious. Like they don't care.
When my friend did it, someone kept trying to convince her to change her mind and ended up crying while typing...it was just so obvious he cared. I mean, I'm sure they were closer, but still. I knew my youth group didn't care for me much, but I thought there were SOME who were going to respond. I guess...being the stubborn chick I am, I wanted an argument. I was prepared to give my reasons why and defend my case. So it sucks when they don't even try to convince me-because I know my mind won't be changed...it's just that I kinda of want

Welcome to the Crazy World of Creepy Creations.
In my opinion next to photography, sculpting is an expensive hobby to get into. These folks take not weeks but months sometime to create just one piece of art to share with you and its all worth the wait. Our own LabyrinthCreations watched over this community as a volunteer and one of the first ones that got me to really appreciate the craft. She is still with us but also following her heart by becoming the co-founder of a new group. DeviantSculptors They are just a few months old but already have the eye of the community.

I'm still on anti-depressants of course. Only one friend knows and I feel awful for betraying H like this. But how exactly do you tell someone that? Especially when she suffers with depression too?
Is it bad I wish I was depressed like I used to be? That I don't want these pills? I'm just numb. I don't know how I feel anymore. It's the worst feeling anymore. I'd rather feel constant depression than be purely CONFUSED with my emotions. Honestly.
I'm a freak.
I've also come to the conclusion that I no longer believe in God. I don't know if I ever did. I was searching for a comfort of some sort...hope. And he hasn't really done anything. If he is real, the only time he's ever answered prayers is for my mom not having cancer-that was almost a year ago...and that wasn't ev
