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. :)
