My only exoteric* comment about the Oscars.

And it’s one that many other people have made.  To with, that Guillermo Del Toro’s Best Director Oscar gives him some serious Hollywood juice right now.  Possibly even enough juice to let him make the picture every Lovecraft fan in the world wants him to make: a big-screen adaptation of At the Mountains of Madness.  As I said on Twitter the other day… I don’t know what I would do to get a Del Toro Mountains of Madness. I don’t know if I want to know what I’d do to get a Del Toro Mountains of Madness. But I’d watch the hell out of that movie, if he made it.

  2. Every?
    No True Scotsman am I, for I never want to see such a horrible thing.
    In my opinion, At the Mountains of Madness is the worst story HPL ever wrote, including The Terror at Red Hook and Facts Surrounding the Late Arthur Jermyn and his family.
    Why? Because the monsters are explained, and we are invited to sympathize with them.
    I do not like that.
    At all.
    “They were men!” No, they were not. They were horrors from beyond space and time who would kill us without hesitation or qualm.
