      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Don't mess with Necro, he's really screwed up. He forces me to do horrible things in the mountains! If Colin wants to climb hard, he should first have to suffer an alpine climb with Necro first. Then he will be ripe for his initiation!

Necronomicon - an invented book mentioned by early 20th Century horror writer HP Lovecraft in his stories; credited to "The Mad Arab, Abdul Alhazred" who was allegedly eaten by invisible demons in the streets of Cairo one day.

 

The book was then mentioned by lots of other horror writers as a tribute/homage to Lovecraft. Many readers apparently did not know that the book was a fake, and began looking for it in the 1960's in bookstores. By 1974 an enterprising science fiction author* had ghostwritten a version of the Necronomicon which was being sold as the real thing to credulous hippies. Any copies of the Necronomicon you may find out there today, say in your Goth teenager's bedroom, are about as authentic and accurate as his copy of the Satanic Bible... not at all.

 

In essence the Necronomicon is a trinket for stupid Goth wannabes, about like dreamcatchers and patchouli oil for hippies. It looks real good if you put a skull on it with a candle on top in front of your mirror with the bat winged frame and in front of your collection of black eyeliner you stole from your mom.

 

* believed to be Philip J. Farmer.

Oh Dru, how can you hold forth on the Necronomicon (book, not avatar) and not bring up the Evil Dead movies? (I, II, and Army of Darkness). These are some of the best Zombie movies of all time, excepting Dead Alive (Peter Jackson, better known for that hobbit movie) which is hands down the best Zombie film of all time.

Wasn't that supposed to stop the killer robot?

Klatuu Veratuu Niktuu, is the phrase spoken in "THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL" to the giant robot.

So what you are saying is you saw Army of Darkness and missed the fact that the phrase Klaatu Niktu etc is a reference to Day The Earth Stood Still the same way you missed the fact that the Necronomicon is a HP Lovecraft reference?

 

Here is a good film for you to watch: Bad Taste by Peter Jackson of Hobbit Fame. You will like the fact that the alien fighters are called the Alien Invasion Defence Squad [note acronym] [laf] .
