Mystery fossil turns out to be giant fungus

Science, once again, proves Lovecraft right, after a century of pointless hesitation. The Mi-go exist and are big and ugly.

omnia exeunt in mysterium, a german putrid blog debating vast aeons, reminds use very kindly that there is not only horror in Lovecraft’s fiction. There can also be poetry, and pure fingertip porn:

Cthulhu Origami [1]

Cthulhu Origami [2]

Cthulhu Origami [3]

Cthulhu Origami [4]

Roland C. Wagner > H.P.L. (1890-1991)

Roland C. Wagner > H.P.L. (1890-1991)

I was petrified to hear that Roland C. Wagner, a french S.-F. author, had just release a new biography of H. P. Lovecraft telling us that our favourite long-faced author didn’t die in 1937 but lived to turn 101. And it even seems that the little jewel is bilingual french-english.

H.P.L. - back

Here [in french] is what actusf has to say about it.

Iglesia Peruana de Cthulhu

24 April 2007, posted by Tulu

Ever heard of the Iglesia Peruana de Cthulhu, the Peruvian Church of Cthulhu? No. Then you’d better be prepared for the worst because its 7 members are ready since 1996 to be eaten by Sleepy Slimy once the stars are aligned, which they aren’t at the moment.

Look at what Tabo, one of the members, has to say:

Not catholic, cthulolic
I live in a country (Peru) with a very strong catholic church. Even the constitution recognizes it as one of the main institutions here. In schools, everybody takes “religion”, which is just “catholicism”. Everybody seems to be catholic (or christian) here. What is funny, is that most of these people don’t even know enough about their own religion or the bible to have a decent conversation (I have read the bible entirely a couple of times, it is one of my favorite science fiction books ever, the book of Job is amazing).

I am a “cthlulolic”. I am a member of the Peruvian Church of Cthulhu. Our beliefs are simple, we will all be killed, eaten and destroyed by Cthulhu. That’s all. It’s just a matter of who will be eaten first.

Another proof that whilst the Great Old Ones may be putrid and really old, they are in fact also very generous. They are sponsoring Tokyo’s National Center for Child Medical Health and Development:

Who you gonna call?

4 April 2007, posted by Tulu

A couple of horrid hand-made videos found on YouTube via the weird Calls For Cthulhu:

Call of Tutu
by Aaron Vanek

HP Lovecraft-influenced film about an old man describing his cat. But is it really just a cat? This is the fifth Lovecraftian movie by director Aaron Vanek.

Ryleh
by Mikaël Genachte-Le Bail + Gaëtan Boutet

An old fisherman brings a mysterious chest up in his nets. He brings it back home only to discover that it was best left at the bottom of the sea. A digitally animated short film inspired by the world of H.P. Lovecraft.

Don’t come once it’s too late and tell me I didn’t warn you. I told you the sleepy R’lyeh thingy wouldn’t be too happy if you hacked its progeny up to replace your good ole rubber tires. Yes, I know they stick better to the muddy roads when it rains…
