The daemon-sultan

azathoth.jpg

Azathoth is an adaptation of a short but not insignificant piece from H.P. Lovecraft's eldritch oeuvre. YouTube comment is generally dissatisfied with the English-language narration. They have a point though, in fairness, the Azathoth is distinguished if anything by its clarity as much as its brevity so it is a poor choice to illustrate my little apologetic but there it is. The main thing, it seems it me, is to encourage more little films and discourage the febrile critics any more voice than the internet has afforded them.

When age fell upon the world, and wonder went out of the minds of men; when grey cities reared to smoky skies tall towers grim and ugly, in whose shadow none might dream of the sun or of Spring's flowering meads; when learning stripped the Earth of her mantle of beauty and poets sang no more of twisted phantoms seen with bleared and inward looking eyes; when these things had come to pass, and childish hopes had gone forever, there was a man who traveled out of life on a quest into spaces whither the world's dreams had fled.

Much more fun is this Mass Invocation of Azathoth, a Whisperers in Darkness rite performed at The Horse Hospital. No word on whether they managed to call up something they could not put down.

What's with the poor grammar and moronic observation?
