    RIP to the classic Wendigoon whiteboard
  • @omegadud
    there aren't a ton of channels where a 55 min video is "kind of a shorter video", but Wendigoon sure is one of them
  • @ChaseFausett
    Somewhere in South Carolina a man is boiling with rage that you made another successful video
  • @Ganymedia9
    In defense of Cthulhu and the boat, wouldn't you be off your game if you were asleep for a thousand years, woke up, and then got smacked in the face?
  • @unai6822
    Never ask a woman her age Never ask a man his salary Never ask lovercraft the name of his cat
  • i prefer podcast wendigoon, having you chill in a room is a lot more fun and disarming. it lets me relax to the story
  • @aguspuig6615
    That boat was charged with all of the indomitable human spirit
  • @goleogthais
    Who would win: A formless incomprehensible eldritch god OR one small boat

    Petition to bring back a bigger whiteboard for occasional story time

    I have a hard time sitting down to read a full story because of my ADHD. And I'll often wind up reading the same sentence over and over in an attempt fully understand or absorb what's being said. Especially if it's an older book with words I've never heard. So I haven't completely finished a novel since I was maybe 18. I'm 24 now. This sort of format is a dream come true for me. You read and fully explain what's being said. And I've always wanted to get more into Lovecraft stuff so this was a perfect video. Thank you. Please please please do more. TLDR: my brain don't like books or big words. Video is good and make brain happy. Do more like this.
  • "that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." Am I the only one that had to pause the video for like an hour to ponder the brilliance of this?
  • @nickn271
    The best description of cosmic horror is the idea of an ant seeing a circuit board not knowing the complexity of the thing it is observing.
  • What a talented writer Howard Phillips Lovecraft was, I sure hope he named his cat something normal
  • I think a point to address with Lovecraft's racism isn't just that he was a wannabe-Anglo dude from the 1930s, but he was also extremely mentally ill, seemingly scared of anything that didn't fit into his status of normalcy. I won't say this makes it okay, but it does make it a bit less worse. Viewing him as merely a product of his time is reductive, as he was truly a product of an awful life, giving him issues we perhaps can't fully understand having.
  • Honestly, I feel like this era of obscure and artistic horror like ARGs and such is just perfect for certain Lovecraft stories like Color Out of Space. Not the movie, but recently read it in a story collection book and it would work so well based in a 1970-80s handheld camera style with spaced out accounts of the horrors the “comet” made…

    Lovecraft: Cthulhu is an unknowable and indescribable being Also Lovecraft: Describes Cthulhu in great detail
  • @htdoc
    The whole "holding a mic in front of a green screen" thing is done by so many other youtubers it has become a really boring cliche. I really liked the previous setup. All the personality of what you keep in your room and have in view of the camera is infinitely more interesting than whatever is on the green screen.
  • At the Mountains of Madness is probably my favorite Lovecraft story, it has a bit more of a narrative than Call of Cthulhu and it also deals with similar elements of lost cities and strange creatures. But it's the ending that I really love.
