Right? Which is perfect; I find Ghost almost unbearably hilarious.

Mr. Crowley, what went on in your head?

That left eye is a little too fixed and creepy. I don’t want to think that it’s looking at me. Indeed though that miter is quite the unit. You don’t find that good stuff at your local haberdashery around here.

Ah yes, Ghost, the band that I listen to often yet don’t vocally consider myself a fan of because the lore is too goddamn confusing.

Hail unto Thee who art Ra in thy rising,
Even unto Thee who art Ra in thy strength,
Who travellest over the Heavens in Thy bark
At the Uprising of the Sun.
Tahuti standeth in His splendour at the prow
And Ra-Ho0r abideth at the helm.
Hail unto Thee from the Abodes of the Night!
