The Old Ones

This morning I got the weirdest piece of spam I've yet received--nothing much, just a little text telling me that there's now a web page for THE OLD ONES.

I usually ignore spam, but for some reason I clicked on the link. It took me to a web page for a Czech band called "The Old Ones" whose first album, Al Azif, contains songs inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe. The leader of the band calls himself "Black Pharoah".

What a weird and wonderful world it is, to be sure.

I got that, too. You got much farther in your reading than I did, though. I was quickly creeped out--especially by Mr. Pharaoh.

But, then again, I was never a big Lovecraft fan, so the opening page text just seemed like so much Lorem Ipsum to me.

Hey, I got it too! I deleted it without looking tho. No guts, no glory, I guess.
