Saturday, Sarah's sis, Karen, and her charming daughter Harley, have moved back to good ole Newfoundland. I haven't bumped into em yet, but when i do, i'll put in a good word for my homeboy Mitch! Now, more importantly... Have you heard of the Bloop? Ok, the story goes thusly, In 1997, a system set up by the US during the cold war picked up a deep sea sound described only as "bloop". Many confirm that the sound could only be coming from a biological creature, but it would have to be even bigger than a Blue Whale! A giant Squid has been ruled out, as has an octopus or machinery. Two listening posts 3000 kilometers apart both registered the sound. The scary part is this, the sound emanated from roughly 50 S longitude; 100 W lattitude. Now read the following passage from H.P. Lovecraft's "The Call of Cthulhu":
"Then, driven ahead by curiosity in their captured yacht under Johansen's command, the men sight a great stone pillar sticking out of the sea, and in S. Latitude 47°9', W. Longitude l23°43', come upon a coastline of mingled mud, ooze, and weedy Cyclopean masonry which can be nothing less than the tangible substance of earth's supreme terror - the nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh, that was built in measureless aeons behind history by the vast, loathsome shapes that seeped down from the dark stars."
This is it my friends, the stars may soon be right! The tenth planet could very well be Yoggoth! The Black Hole at the center of our galaxy, the vile void of Azathoth, is in fact spinning faster and faster, and growing. Our doom is assured. Weep, O son of man, for the end of our time is near, the great old ones will ascend, we will weep and wail, scream and howl until our throats are raw and soaked in blood, and then as the great eyes watch, we will tear the flesh from our own bodies. Make peace with your chosen god, for in the end we will all face Cthulhu!
I don't know about you, but i'm fucking terrified!
Need more proof? check this out!
Want to hear the bloop for yourself? (warning: May cause madness!)
In other news, Caught Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest at a midnight showing. I could give you a detailed review, but i'm not going to, i don't want to spoil anything. suffice it to say, it's a damn fun ride of a flick. Every bit the equal of the original, with a jaw dropping final act and at least two "holey shit!" moments (one of which comes immediately before the end credits). If you do check it out, stay after the end credits for a neat little extra.
Also watched Sky Blue something like three times during the week - amazing flick!
