10:16 am - Tentacle porn!
So last night was a marvelous evening involving film, literary discussions, and a short argument about perverse fertility. Oh, and tentacles.

Yes, talking about Cthulhu and Nyarlathotep and Yog-Sothoth was just the thing to get the blood moving.

I ended up rushing through some things, in particular the Chaos Magic portion of the slides. I wanted to hit some of the main points with Lovecraft and help people understand that. I knew I was passing through it much faster than intended, but I also knew that the two hours this meeting would clock in at far exceeded the normal presentation time of 30 minutes that this quarter has seen. . . And I didn't want to push too hard on time.

The whole thing ended up running about an hour and 40 minutes. Twenty-one people showed up (I think, though I'll have a more accurate count when I figure up how many handouts are left), which was far more than I expected, and for which I'm quite grateful. Thank you to those who showed up.

I was amused that the Cradle of Filth video got such a positive response, I just wish it had been shorter. And I wish I'd had sound coming from the projector, not just the iBook.

The short comic that ninjer let me use was great, especially his explaination of it. . . as I didn't actually have any idea about his intent, but I found it funny anyway. Special thanks, also, to those who were able to shed light onto aspects I either was unaware of, or couldn't explain as well.

Thanks much, guys. The presentation was worth giving because it was all so much fun. :)

Congratulations on a great presentation! If you ever decide to visit Lovecraft land (Rhode Island) in person, do let me know! :)

Needs to be held yearly, if not more often.

Sorry I couldn't make it -- the orientation meeting at the middle school for my son lasted 45 minutes longer than anticipated. :(

Damn that sounds like it was fun. Almost makes me wish I was in Ohio.

Then again, I still have my sanity, so I'll stick with dirt poor, shitty Michigan for another few months, heh heh.

There is something important about this mythos that I thin.k you should know

I didn't want to bring it up at the meeting, even though the Yellow Sign would have made it safer...

But the Elder Gods and Outer Ones are all really Japanese girls.

Haha. Yes, and if you do a Google Image Search on Eris, you get lots of Anime.

I'm starting to believe the Japanese don't have their own culture to draw on.

As a student of Japanese Culture 231, I can confirm this.

Japanese girls, eh?

I responded to this, but I guess it didn't show up. ::shrugs:: All I said was that the idea of the elder ones being Japanese girls *almost* makes me want to consider this belief system. Not quite, though.
