    The HP Lovecraft society’s has done Two more Albums of this music! If only I’d know of this a month ago to give me time for shipping.

    I’m shocked that ‘Tentacles’ isn’t playing in a loop to give this blog the ‘horrible supermarket’ effect.

    The same guys also made a very good 1926-style silent film of Call of Cthulhu.

    Wow.

    That pretty much made my day. I love it.

    And after a morning of reading student papers, too. Thought nothing would be able to cheer me up.

    Long time ago in elder days,
    So the traveling cultist raves,
    A great stone city, tombs and all,
    Had sunk beneath the waves.

    Hark, you fools: That is not dead
    Which can eternal lie,
    And with strange aeons even death,
    Yes, even death may die

    Cephalopodmas

    Those titles are way too comprehensible to be good for Cthulhu-fans. They need a few more glottal stops and 5 consonant sections.

    We had a long drive last Saturday (12/9) to go to the graduation of our goddaugher Heather in Manhattan, KS. And this was the first CD we played. Our goddaughter’s father a nd his girlfriend had a moment of cognitive dissonence, and the father, at least, went, “oh, that’s the point.”
