That’s Cthulhu.

December 5, 2007

Lyrics © 2000 by Terence Chua
(to the tune of “That’s Amore” by Harry Warren & Jack Brooks, as sung by Dean Martin)

When there’s blood in the sky
And the end times are nigh
That’s Cthulhu!

To consume us at last
In one final repast
Here’s Cthulhu!

    Oh what fun
    Cthulhu fhtagn
    Cthulhu fhtagn

    All will chant as he rises

    Sing with glee
    Tekeli-li
    Tekeli-li

    In our cultish disguises

When the seas start to boil
And there’s trouble and toil
Blame Cthulhu!

Serve the world on a bun
There’s just nowhere to run
Anymore

Now the stars are aligned
There’s no time even for one last
Boo-hoo

Now he’s here – quake with fear
Make the way clear for the
Great Cthulhu!

1:29

November 20, 2007

Go here: http://www.apple.com/trailers/paramount/11808/

Download a hi-res version of the new Cloverfield trailer. Watch it. At 1:29 we get the clearest shot yet of the movie’s monster. Looks like some kind of spiky elbow, along with the back of a head ending in sort of Knuckles-the-Echinda dreadlocks.

Earlier in the trailer, at point 1:11, we can see the silhouettes of two soldiers in biohazard gear trying to restrain a young woman. Her shadow rapidly distends outwards all along the torso, and the shot cuts just become she presumably explodes. This seems to indicate there may be a plague element to the story as well. Or perhaps, if it really is a Cthulhu movie, one of the Old Ones has just decided to start making people pop. You know, for kicks.

The next couple of days are going to be a smörgåsbord of unfounded rumor and speculation. Game on!

But that doesn’t make me a dishwasher.

I am a utensil maintenance technician.

Starting to Get Back on My Feet

October 14, 2007

I think it’s pretty clear now that I may not be able to continue my prior posting tempo. My schedules has started to settle down considerably, but I still don’t have much time for posting. Also, with so much other writing work going on, I find myself less drawn to posting here, and I refuse to allow this to become a chore.

In other news, the Apocalypse hit us the other day.

Fucked For Time

October 7, 2007

I’m trying to write a book. As part of this, I have to help 8 other people write their books.

I’ve now got a job, which will consume between 15 and 20 hours of my week.

I have 2 discussion sections and a mandatory reading seminar every week.

I have homework and reading from 2 classes that both think I should actually give a damn about them.

I have various life-maintenance  chores that pop up from time to time.

I also would like to join a regular D&D game and maintain my demanding video game schedule.

Holy fuck am I ready to not be doing college any more right now. I don’t mind having so much to do; I mind having so much to do in so many different areas at once. I fucking hate all these balls in the air.

All The Fun of a Tabasco Enima!

October 2, 2007

My computer had been getting progressively less stable over the past few weeks, so tonight I bit the bullet and reformatted the hard drive and then reinstalled Windows XP. This joyful process was made all the more pleasant by ResNet’s ever-helpful digital handcuffs.

It looks like I’m mostly out of the woods now.
