Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

Bigshot Toyworks is developing a project called "Friendship is Maddness," so - naturally - they've gone ahead and decided it will feature a Cthulhu/My Little Pony crossover named Maddie. We would prefer not to think the Cthulhu-on-pony action that might have created her.

Well, possibly not all of Oklahoma City. It might just be the land in front of Lesley Rawlinson's restaurant Paseo Grill. The several hundred pound monolith that appeared there is unclearly worded.

Feminist Yog-Sothoth is Beyond Mortal Comprehension; Still Attempts to Explain Feminist Concepts

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

All we know about the origin of Feminist Yog-Sothoth is that it was created by Dave of Dave You Fool on Tumblr. Witness the being they have summoned to this earthly plane, and join us in horror so deep it becomes trance-like, enthralled madness.

Newly Discovered Microorganisms Named After Cthulhu

A pair of microbes that help termites digest wood have been identified by researchers at the University of British Columbia. While finding new forms of life is always cool, this one probably wouldn't have caught our eyes if not for one thing -- the researchers who discovered the symbiotic microbes have named them after dread Cthulhu, and therefore earned our undying respect.

Celebrate H.P. Lovecraft’s 122nd Birthday by Getting Into H.P Lovecraft. Start Here

Storied horror writer and really quite mentally ill person H.P. Lovecraft would have been 122 years old today. Yes, much of his catalog may seem verbose, florid, and archaic by today's standards. Lest we forget, yes, he was a racist xenophobe of pretty much the highest conceivable order, but he's also the man who gave us not only the oft-used horror trope of the Necronomicon and the burgeoning cottage industry that is Cthulhu. He's also the man behind the very concept of cosmic horror, because for Lovecraft, the thing in the closet or under the bed wasn't scary enough. The characters in Lovecraft's fiction are under seige by the entire universe. Whole alien species and races of humanoid underdwellers are out to get them, and no one else will buy it until it's too late.

Guillermo del Toro Says Prometheus May Have Already Eaten His Lunch; Cthulhu May Slumber a While Longer

Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn

If you're a follower of the career of Guillermo del Toro, which we certainly are, from Hellboy to Pan's Labyrinth to his involvement in the very early concept stages of this December's The Hobbit, you might be aware of one of his longest gestating projects, At the Mountains of Madness. Shelved once again in March of last year, the adaptation of the most famous work in of H.P. Lovecraft's Cthulu mythos, has continually had trouble getting greenlit, as a conceptual horror movie about the ultimately uncomfortable relationship between mankind and the rest of the universe that would require a large budget, big special effects, and an R rating. Wait... that sounds familiar... In fact, all of those things could also apply to Ridley Scott's long awaited return to the Aliens universe, and del Toro feels this makes the market a bit to saturated.
