86 years ago TODAY great Cthulhu was awoken!


Happy March 23rd!  Or, as we like to say around here, Happy Cthulhu Day!  For it was 86 years ago today that the great eldritch being was first seen by modern man, as chronicled by H.P. Lovecraft in "The Call of Cthulhu":
"March 23rd the crew of the Emma landed on an unknown island and left six men dead; and on that date the dreams of sensitive men assumed a heightened vividness and darkened with dread of a giant monster's malign pursuit, whilst an architect had gone mad and a sculptor had lapsed suddenly into delirium!"
And the cosmic meat of the matter:
The Thing cannot be described - there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled. God! What wonder that across the earth a great architect went mad, and poor Wilcox raved with fever in that telepathic instant? The Thing of the idols, the green, sticky spawn of the stars, had awaked to claim his own. The stars were right again, and what an age-old cult had failed to do by design, a band of innocent sailors had done by accident. After vigintillions of years great Cthulhu was loose again, and ravening for delight.
Sleep well tonight puny humans!
