Actually here is an actual vacation I want to take someday. I came across this while doing a bit of research for a novel I am working on.

Shoes Made From Big Nose George

Basically, in the 1880s a cattle rustler and bandit was lynched and turned into a pair of shoes. The shoes are on display in a museum in Wyoming.

Meant to ask you this... ages ago I went to Nevada with my then wife and her sis. I saw one of those cool local museums. The human skin shoes made me think of this. In the museum they had all these odd exhibits but one was a human skull with a bullet hole in the forehead that was found in the desert. Could it have been in Silver City?

I’d think Virginia City is more likely. It has a couple of little oddball museums where you might find something like that and is right next door to Silver City.

This is where Nyarlathotep spent his evening, watching The Taming of the Shrew in a beautiful setting, under a blanket (It gets cold at night out by Lake Tahoe) with his wife. The play was great, the setting was great, everything was great.

Nyarlathotep appreciated it all very much.

I'm happy for you, Nyarl. And I see they partly copied William's round theater, cool.



Some Lovecraftian horror?

I think it's always been like that. He's talking about religious and ideological belief systems. Those have been around in one dorm or another for a long time.

Maybe if we can find a news channel to ceaselessly yap about the "War on Halloween" every time some business neglects to put up any fake plastic bats or the cups at Starbucks have an insufficiency of skeletons.

Either way, I am doing my part. Full-size Kit-Kats as always, people.

Indeed, I think it's from some "Pyramids" movie. :mrgreen:

Lovecraft's take on the subject (with Houdini as hero, if memory serves well?) is one of his more frightening novels.

You're right, that's not from Horror of Party Beach.

I still am pretty sure I have seen that movie though. Just can't remember

Thanks.

It's one that isn't in any of the Lovecraft collections I own, so thus its one that I actually haven't read.

And now, a musical interlude, featuring the song stylings of Lee Marvin



I always liked that character, because I would probably have had a very similar attitude if I lived during the California Gold Rush.
