...the coming of the Lord.

Trying for something new, as the Mythos is rather prose heavy.

AHHHHH POETRY BRING IT ON BRING IT ON
Already I'm feeling a lot of resonance here, the post brings to mind (probably for obvious reasons) imagery of the sleeping giant, of the early metonymy between god and seasonal cycles, of.. of.. okay I'm not quite experienced at talking about poetry. But this feels pretty mythological and I'm excited.


EXHIBITS:
Viceking's Graab (Step inside the maze. You could spend an eternity here.)
The Mythology of Empathy (Eight songs, nine tracks. Welcome death.)
Ancestor (Five tracks. Death of the Artist and Chinese mythology.)
Fear (A visual art exhibit in blog format.)
Nobody anymore, never again (Another visual art exhibit in blog format.)
The Everyblogger Triad: 1, 2, 3 (Embrace the bad writing, give into your psyche.)
PLAN 31 (Frank Slenderman: Ace Attorney)
OH GOD THE RAPTURE IS BURNING (400,000 words. Five months. All Fears. Excess. On fifth draft, not final.)
Topography Genera (15 blogs. Conventional horror. See seas rise.)

Ditto. Staternalea was a pagan holiday that the early church set to rivel via seubrating Christmas on that day and borrowing ideas form it. I belive a Bacchanal is relating to Bacchus (another name for Dyonises or his roman eqivalint). Bacchus means noise, and the OH TO HECK WITH FIGURING IT OUT ILL LOOK IT UP
okay i was right. it was eather a place where peple get drunk and party (a place where Bacchus might be seen), or a priest of said Olympian.

So yeah. It reminds me of some twisted version of a religious poem, with some H.P. lovecraft thrown in for good meser. Wonderful .

...where the grapes of wrath are stored

And please note, this isn't just pulling from Judeo-Christian tropes

(The open and close to this are taken from an actual statement by one of the Sikh Gurus)

Not sure this isn't intentional, but in the Feb. 1 post it's spelled "sou gan" and in the Feb. 3 post it's "suo gan." This is really neat, anyway!

Chalk it up to Welsh not being spelt how it sounds.

(IE, the author, despite ridiculous amounts of education, can't keep continuity with spelling, at all)

That most recent post was vividly paranoid. Not something I often see getting conveyed that effectively in blogs, so it's refreshing to see someone pull it off-- especially with a poem.

Help I'm alive...

What's this? First person personal pronouns? What is this madness?

...my heart keeps beating like a hammer/a hammer...

and who will have won...?

How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy?

(And as a background to the last post:

The UK, during the Cold War, was about 3 mins away from any land based nuclear launch by the USSR. As such, there was a number of 'just in case' things written/produced.

Protect and Survive (YouTube has a channel which has all 20 of the short films on it. I strongly recommend you watch them.)

The Doomsday Clock
(Those of you familiar with Watchmen (the comic, not the film, as the film removes most/all of the nuclear attack paranoia imagery) will know the image and why minutes to midnight is a lot more terrifying than it sounds)
