“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”

"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

For the Lovecraft Fans

A ways back I had posted a question about any Lovecraft inspired or similar genre movies - some good suggestions, but I have found something new and which I look forward to.

The H. P. Lovecraft Historical Society
has done several "fan" movies with what looks like rather professional techniques. From The Call of Cthulhu as a silent movie, to the upcoming The Whisperer in Darkness.

The combination of modern technology and the period sets is exceptional - I have a feeling I'll be ordering a few things down the line.

Ooooooooooh...nice!! Of course, I'm still waiting for Guillermo del Toro to do At the Mountains of Madness.

Have you heard the musical, "Shoggoth on the Roof"? I encountered it a few months back and thought I was going to sustain internal injuries from laughing so hard! It's all on YouTube (song only, no visuals sadly): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OaJckcCZtBQ
