There are many things I hope for in this coming New Year but having a Lego Cthulhu rise up to usher in the end of humanity is not one of them!
A big thanks to ((Primus)) for posting this wonderful creation over on Flickr for all of us to enjoy. Really a fantastic creation.
I’m not sure that H.P. Lovecraft had this in mind when he concocted his Elder Gods Mythos but I think we fans of his work certainly don’t mind it.
Okay. If you are woken to this in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow…something has gone horribly wrong.
A big thanks to Dr. Chrissy over at deviantART for this humorous illustration! She has this to share about her artwork:
“You’d better not pout!
You’d better not cry!
You’d better not shout!
….err…on second thought, maybe you should.
This is dedicated to my sweetie and husband, Greg, who is the World Champion of the collectible card game, “Call of Cthulhu”. Considering his achievements in the game (and the fact that we had two plushie Cthulhus dressed as bride and groom at our wedding), it has been a banner year for the influence of Cthulhu in our lives.”
Really, H.P. Lovecraft is a good read all year…not just around the month of December.
Grrr! When will I learn to move and buy something when I spot it right away. I spotted this wonderful and whimsical Easter themed Cthulhu statue last week and made a point to think about buying it. When I went to buy it this morning it was already sold. Curse you and your one of a kind treasures Etsy! You will drive me mad …oh….. Well played.
Do you love the concept of Care Bears, but the whole fluffy plushy bear thing just isn’t for you? Do you prefer your caring with a side of cosmic madness? Well turn you cold insane eyes towards these lovable Carethulhu figures by Ukhsud. Each Carethulhu stands less than 2 inches tall and has a metal loop on their heads for hanging them from the ceiling or ceremonial alter.
My favorite is Blue Carethulhu. Why? Because Blue Carethulhu cares about flowers and the environment and because he does, I don’t have to.
I have no idea, why or … well I just cannot put words into the randomness and wonderfullness of this print by Etsy artist, FullFrogMoon. So I will just use hers:
When the alarming news reached Capitol Hill that Cthulhu had been seen emerging from the sea near Atlantic City, alert Congressional aides who were familiar with the writings of H.P. Lovecraft recognized the significance of this event and promptly sprang into action. Recalling their 20th century literature studies at Yale, the young staffers immediately informed Committee members of Cthulhu’s presence on dry land.
The Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs proceeded to issue a subpoena ordering Cthulhu to appear before the Committee to testify about the specifics concerning his use of TARP funds to bail out insolvent lenders in his undersea dominion. Specifically, the committee requested details concerning the circumstances surrounding the concessional rate financing granted to questionable contractors engaged in the rehabilitation of Cthulhu’s sunken city of R’lyeh.
Cthulhu remarked “How in the world can I be expected to assess the creditworthiness of a creature that is little more than a protoplasmic mass resembling a collection of glowing bubbles?” He then promptly asserted his Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and refused to provide any further information. Conscious of Cthulhu’s reputation as a destroyer of worlds and his appetite for feeding on the souls of humans, the Committee avoided pressing Cthulhu too hard about the TARP funds and instead graciously agreed to sponsor legislation providing the citizens of R’lyeh with a follow-on stimulus package to ensure that all structures in the city are brought up to Neptunian code.
