It’s a little known fact that the awakening of great old ones isn’t dictated by stars being aligned with anything. It’s just a matter of when their alarm-clocks go off.
koyaanisqatsi was a rather terrible movie actually- great if you have insomnia though
“Pish posh! The stars are always in alignment with something.” I love that line.
“Koyaanisqatsi” means life out of balance, if I am not mistaken…nice reference. & I agree w Elliot- great line! Pish Posh! LOL
I actually like it a lot, which is not to say that I put it high on the list of films I recommend to my friends. You do have to slow down to watch it, which is, I think, the point of the movie. And I love the Phillip Glass score. I like to work those things in when I can, as if no one gets it, it doesn’t impact the story; if they do get it, it still doesn’t impact the story. Just an Easter egg.
Philipp Glass is awesome, and so are most of the things connected with Hastur and the King. That being said, I hope we get to see him, the King. Well, not actually SEE him, since I doubt even your considerable artistic skill will be able to convey the limitless dread that his face means, but at least some part of him.
The Hastur/King in Yellow stories have always been a favourite of mine, and we often play CoC adventures featuring the King in Yellow. Great stuff, keep up the good work. Though I must say, I feel somewhat uneducated around you guys.
What!!?? SHOW the King in Yeloow??!! To do that, I would have to have SEEN him, and then I would….be……mm-mm-m–aaaaaaaddddd…….
Well, I heard he’s actually a decent fella, got some bad press because of that thing with the truck back in ’59, down in Wisconsin. Friend of mine saw him once.
the music is pretty good, however the movie’s just about 30 minutes too long otherwise it would have been a great movie, now it just feels a bit pretentious.
Thanks for the movie mention-never heard of it before.
A Hopi-hastur link could be usefull under other circumstances, too-thanks.
Googled “Meso-Deen”: found
artlang? (seems to be pure anagram) Site also has several fora on psychoactive flora. Perhaps that includes so’ksi?
Ah well, “Near the day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky”, as they say.
T`tkhtya one may actually have to look up in Old Media.
That’s totally the Yellow Sign on that necklace.
Very strange, for both T’tkthya and Meso-deen were made up as my own minor contributions to the pantehon.
Right, got that: they had that Lin Caterish ring to them.
But I also initially assumed that Koyaanisqatsi was a Clark Ashton Smith soundalike, so.
Posting this here because I can’t post it on the relevant (archived) issue:
The first page of the first chapter is showing up weirdly; there’s the chapter title, and then the panel appears twice below it. Maybe something to fix?
Thanks, Aardwolf, I’ll check into it.
Whew! Just caught up with reading the whole thing. I started several months ago, but life intruded. Love this comic!! I’m somewhat up on the Lovecraft mythos, but clearly not at the expert level of most commenters here. I’ll be back for more!
I second Elliot’s statement. Furthermore, I greatly enjoy the comic’s approach to reality in general.
