WHY AREN'T THERE MORE LOVECRAFT MOVIES?Part of the challenge of adapting H.P. Lovecraft into a feature-length film is that he doesn't write about people doing things. His "protagonists," if we can even call them that, are often featureless men with bland names passively observing an eldritch, blasphemous, squamous, cyclopean horror that is too evil to fully describe (say "eldritch," "blasphemous," "squamous," and "cyclopean" out loud—don't they feel great in your mouth?). His characters are not driven by desires or choices so much as they are survivor-witnesses to the unnameable. We can't imagine any of them having hobbies or wearing sweatpants.

(However, the chance that the lettuce and tomato in your BLT were grown using human poop is negligible — only about 1% of all the farmland in the U.S. uses biosolids as fertilizer. That's because farmers use more fertilizer than poop can provide, meaning that farmers tend to use other types of fertilizer.) Around 17% of biosolids are incinerated — some, but not all of that, gets used to produce energy. The rest winds up in landfills. … [Read more...] about Where does all our poop go?
