Can I just briefly say how glad I am to finally be rid of these essays and exams?

Finally, I can post and share art again!

(Yes, I am working on filling up my queue.)

Thank you all for waiting, now I hope I can return the favour.

In response to Pamela Geller’s Islamophobic Anti-Jihad Bus Ads

MyJihad is a public education campaign that seeks to share the proper meaning of Jihad as believed and practiced by the majority of Muslims. Jihad means “struggling in the way of God”. The way of God, being goodness, justice, passion, compassion, etc. It is putting up the good fight against whatever odds or barriers you face in your life.

It is a central tenet of the Islamic creed that has unfortunately been widely misrepresented due to a) first and foremost, the actions of Muslim extremists, b) attempts at public indoctrination by Islamophobes who claim that the extremists are right and the rest of us are wrong, and c) a selective media that understandably focuses on the sensational.

This campaign is about reclaiming our faith and its concepts from extremists, both Muslim and anti-Muslim. It’s about our voice, our lives, our reality. MyJihad includes displaying public ads on buses & trains, the use of #MyJihad hashtag on twitter, outreach on Facebook and Youtube, as well as speaking events and other initiatives.

Hiatus

Hello everyone,

The activity on this tumblog has been stagnant at best over these past few days and it will unfortunately remain this way during the upcoming week - exams are coming and I cannot afford to spend my time on Tumblr.

I apologise to all my followers for the inactivity. Hopefully I will not disappoint you all once I return. There might be time for some posts in the queue, but it will not be a stable and steady amount of daily posts.

To mark my brief hiatus I will leave you with this beautiful new song by my good friend, M. Beckmann (the volume settings folder).

Until next time.

Rowan “Zitterberg”

For the upcoming three days the theme will be rated S for Spooky.

Like, crazy bonkers spooky.

Also, I’ll be in Bonn, Germany.

Hanging out with these guys for three days.

Happy Halloween!

Back again!

Hello everyone!

Exams are over and I’m going to fill my queue up today so that you will all have some posts to enjoy for a good while.

Thank you so much for your patience!

All the best,

Zitterberg

I made a Twitter account

You’re all more than welcome to follow (which it’s not worthy of to begin with) or ask me questions here. I’m more inclined to answer questions more quickly than on my Tumblr.

Exams

Hello everyone,

Due to upcoming exams and the huge amount of work lying ahead of me I’m going to refrain from posting content on this blog.

This does not, however, mean that I will be inactive, I will still reblog a few posts whenever I find the time to get on Tumblr. Uploading content myself, however, will cease for at least three days. Answering messages will take a little longer, too (like I was doing a stellar job at that before the break)

Perhaps during a long break from my studying I’ll fill my queue with a few posts.

Thank you for your understanding and have a great weekend!

All the best,

Rowan

Cyclopean Cities: Some background information regarding Alan Moore's history with Lovecraft's writing: ›

fckyeahhplovecraft:

Providence is the follow-up of Alan Moore’s previous works - The Courtyard and the four-part horror mini-series Neonomicon (2010-2011) - placed in the universe of Lovecraft and his world famous Cthulhu Mythos. The upcoming project features an exploration of Lovecraft’s life where Howard will team up with a closeted homosexual Jew.

Hopefully, the comic will be written as a ‘buddy cop-esque’ story detailing Lovecraft and his yet-unnamed partner battling unnameable cosmic horrors from Beyond, solving aeon-old mysteries and unearthing unfathomably hideous knowledge that no human should ever have learned. During these cosmic-inferiority-complex-enabling adventures where “the sweet embrace of oblivion” alludes to suicidal tendencies, Lovecraft slowly realises that Jews (or anyone other than non-white-Anglo-Saxons) are not as bad as he had previously imagined. In return, the unnamed companion would find acceptance and love where she/he had least expected it and learns to accept her/himself.

This revelation is quickly followed by yet another flight from yet another timeless abomination before inevitably blacking out. The loss of consciousness is likely caused due to the exhaustion of screaming blasphemous obscenities at the top of your lungs and witnessing events that could, at the very best, be rated as “drastically reconsidering your view of and position in the cosmos” on a scale of “mildly disturbing” to “Ungl’Unl’Rrlch’Chchch”.

On second thought, women having any present or active roles in “Grandpa Theobald” his stories besides birthing new generations of fish people, being dead, being Medusa, or simply not being there in the first place makes a female lesbian Jew highly unlikely.

Furthermore, it is highly likely that it will involve scenes of a woman or a group of women being legitimately raped due to the fact that it is a comic book written by Alan Moore, a man well-known for rivalling the gratuitous amounts of sexual assault, rape and the constant denigration of women as frequently as the average amorphous tentacle monster in Hentai.

Speaking of Hentai and tentacles…

Cyclopean Cities: Lovecraft and the Nazi Issue ›

fckyeahhplovecraft:

Hello everyone,

Recent comments made by comic book writer Alan Moore (WatchmenV for Vendetta) labelling H. P. Lovecraft as a “potential Nazi sympathiser” during the Northants International Comics Expo (N.I.C.E.) in regards to Moore’s forthcoming project, Providence, has reignited an age-old, controversial debate.

Was H. P. Lovecraft a Nazi (sympathiser)?

Because of his influences in horror (and other genres) becoming more recognised to mainstream audiences (especially in contemporary viral pop culture) and in light of this recent controversy, I have decided to write an admittedly rather lengthy essay text post dedicated to the horror author’s alleged relation to Nazism somewhere this month.

It is an extremely delicate and intricate subject that requires research, sourcing, time and planning. Illustrations and art will continue to be posted regularly, so there is no need to fear inactivity on this tumblog.

All the best,

Rowan “Zitterberg”

I’m back!

Sorry for the short hiatus. I’ve been occupied with my studies these past few days, but now I finally had some spare time and filled my queue with plenty of art and illustrations to last at least a good few days!

Time for more music.

Three songs from Ulver.

Finally got the music player working.

Enjoy some Höhlenmusik Ensemble!

Took me forever, but I finally got it working. Also, for those who haven’t read yet, this is my new tumblog for personal questions. You can ask me a question about anything in particular and I’ll answer you.

At least this way my main blog won’t be filled with walls of text.

I made a personal tumblog! ›

If anyone would want to ask me some questions about stuff in general or something specific that isn’t related to art-sharing, hit me up here and I will answer you.

It’s 4AM - art-sharing is back. I might have to make a personal tumblog or something and keep this tumblog purely for art.

You haven’t even heard me talk about Bane his gang, or Bruce Wayne, or anyone and everything in The Dark Knight Rises and why it was terrible. God, I could go all night, but I musn’t.

Anyway, goodnight. Try not to be committing mass murder just because you think you know better.

Time for a new song.
