  1. Thanks for the mention Jessie, but I do have to point out that the script is abridged. Not hacked up and definately has all the Lovecraftian flavor you could want but gets the job done in 16 minutes.
    A very skillfull edit by Joe Medina with a couple of dramatic snips from me. So if your looking for the complete UNABRIDGED text try here.

    Just trying to keep the truth in advertising spirit alive. Thanks

  2. Thanks Sam, I will adjust the post. I followed your reading with the original text for a while the edits must have been pretty minor. Thanks!
