Close to a tributary of an ocean lives a Vancouveritess. She has read a book. It was written by one H P Lovecraft and was called the Dunwich Horror.
Her greatest hope is to one day become a victim of the other-dimensional horror described in that book.
Possibly, in a previous existence, she was a short-lived extra in this film.
Yet the one we should fear most is still out there, gathering and devouring, souls.
Cthulhu in all his glory.
I count coup, rain 🙂

HP Lovecraft suggested that searchers after horror haunt strange, far places.
And yet, perhaps, the most merciful thing in the world is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
In your own home there may be a minion of the tentacled horror which lurks beneath the ancient seas of this small planet.
Why has it taken up residence in your home?
Why is collecting dust?
What is its ultimate and inimical plan?
How large will it grow?
Will you be able to rid your domicile of its invasively evil presence?
It could be that one unfortunate day we shall see that at which dogs howl in the dark, and that at which cats prick up their ears after midnight.
I have spent some time trying to deny the horrors which lie beneath our world of apparent sanity.
Possibly because I am being subject to the horrors of a Federal Election Campaign.
However, it is good to know that there are horrors beyond John Howard and there will a Festive Season to mock. I found this several years ago along with a whole lot of other Cthulhu Carols. You, my demented reader, will be subject to them over the forthcoming weeks.
For those who know their HTML coding, I attempted to create a tag
The Shoggoth was not amused.
God Rest Ye Scary Great Old Ones
God rest ye scary great old ones;
Let everything dismay.
Remember Great Cthulhu shall rise up from R’lyeh
To kill us all with tentacles
If we should go his way.
O tidings of madness and woe, madness and woe
O tidings of madness and woe!
In Yuggoth and in Aldebaran
The Great Old Ones were spawned
Imprisoned by the Elder Gods to wait for eons,
Enticing humans to release them,
An Arab said: “That is not dead
Which can eternal lie,
And with Strange Eons even death may die.”
The Great Old Ones will rule once more
And all will be destroyed.
A list of the fifty scariest movies has been been published by Boston.com.
Somehow they were unable to find a place for Psycho.
They even missed out this film, the scariest one ever made!
Many of you may have wondered at my grasp on reality.
I know I have been posting a lot on the fiction which is Cthulhu. We all know it is a fiction!
Huge alien, other-dimensional beings of vaguely anthromorphic shape lying dead but dreaming in the oceanic abyss, muttering “Fhtagn”. Really! Who would ever believe this drivel!
No-one with any sanity could possible hold that these are a part of the real world.
Here is proof of what happens when
a blog-gigolo an ordinary person comes into contact with a strangely cephalopodic being!
