Default Cthulhu-verse thread

Seeing as there is an Atheist thread and a Jesus thread, I think it's only fair to dedicate a thread to everyone's favorite High Priest to the Elder Gods. This is not intended to be a debate thread, but instead a Cthulhu worship thread. So feel free to join in and praise him!

"That is not dead which can eternal lie. Yet with strange aeons even death may die."

Read "The Call of Cthulhu" by H.P Lovecraft

I disagree with Cthulhu's stance on gay marriage.

That's just heresay and rumors. As long as the gay couple lose their minds together, then that's all that matters.

Also a big thanks to Schlosser85 for sharing that divine image of the all mighty Cthulhu.

I always thought the people Lovecraft influenced (Campbell, Ligotti, Howard, Smith, Gavin) and those who influenced him (Blackwood, Hodgson, Machen, Chambers, maybe Wells) are a lot better than he is, but without him, they might not be as famous as he is. Curious.

Honestly, why can't they get Del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness started up? I'd like to see a little bit of Cthulhu on the big screen.

That's one way of looking at it.

It all comes down to money. But the last I heard Del Toro is going to give it one more shot and try to get the ball rolling. Hopefully one day we'll see At the Mountains of Madness on the big-screen.

Also, thanks for the plushie Teelie. Cthulhu appreciates images of himself.

Speaking of the big C, has anyone read The Fall of Cthulhu comics? I found they were amazing.

Thanks. With false religions like Christianity getting in everyone's face, I felt that it was time to remind everyone that one day the Old Ones will return and vanquish us all.

What made Cthulu a meme suddenly over the last few years. I read a lot of Lovecraft 7 years ago in high school, but after it seemed like I suddenly was seeing Cthulu Plushies and bumper stickers, and then the memes began.
Apparently there is a CoC silent film from 2005 as well.

Oh, and all hail Cthulu.

I don't know why he's gotten so massive over the years (beyond the standard mind rape and cults) but he's not even one of the big guns of the Elder gods. He is pretty awesome though. He's even fought the Ghostbusters once.

Here's some HP Lovecraft Cthulhu Ambiance. Music from the 1920's mixed with Trent Reznor's Quake soundtrack. I feel this captures the mood of Lovecraft, give it a listen and dream of R'lyeh.

Beyond The Shores Of Sleep from "The Nameless Festival"

He was on South Park fairly recently too, so I'm sure that boosted Cthulu-awareness.

Mike Tyson accepts the challenge. He'll be ready after he gets revenge on Thor.

He's probably more well-known because his name is the more pronounceable of the Gods' and you can say fun things like Cthuloops.

Has anybody here ever played Arkham Horror?

The best board game in history, IMO.

The Collect Call of Cthulu (although the misspell it and pronounce it Ca-too-loo) is one of my favorite Real Ghostbusters episodes. I have the whole box set

The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy also had the "Prank Call of C'thulu" episode although I forget the details.
