Anyone heard of a band called H.p. lovecraft? i was browsing through a flea market and in a stall with all kinds of old vinvl and concert posters there was one for jefferson airplane at the filmore east... right below jefferson airplane was "H.P. Lovecraft"

any one heard their music? some how i doubt the writer came back to life after strange eons (ok 30 years) just to go to a concert...

there also was a somewhat beat up poster from a few years earlier stating the president and mrs. kennedy would be at the merchandise mart in dallas on Nov 22....

Yestaerday at the annual Ventura Boulevard street fair, some odd woman gave my mother the original Chick Tract that the Cthulist spoof was based on, obviously, the original was far more frightening.

Excuse me, but isn't that what I'm already doing? I mean, c'mon, where else can you receive a real laying-on of tentacles and a squid ink baptism?! Praise the Slimy One! Praise Be Cthulhu!

Plus, I've baptised Andy Dick. I've guaranteed that Mr. Dick will be turned-into Cthulhu excrement in the end. Isn't that worth something?

:yuck: Blorp!

Am I to believe that you have received the laying on of tentacles from Rev. Orser?

Are you one of the annointed ones?

Been there a couple of times. It was either there or the Algarve... one thing about Rl'yeh is that there's no tacky souvineer shops or crummy bars! Still, not as nice as Leng! Mind you, don't go there if you have an irrational fear of spiders!

Graeme- verging on just plain silly

I prefer Kadath in the Cold Waste. Arrived by Shantak. Skybar there was awesome, except for the sucker prints on the 'clean' glasses, but hey, ol' Nyaly's a pretty good host, so who am I to quibble? Didn't really appreciate the amorphous flautists much, however. Didn't know any Johnny Mercer songs. Just kept playing Neil Diamond incessantly.

So, that's where Tekelili came from...that Neil sure can write 'em.

Ee-gads, no wonder Azathoth's blind and stupid!!!! He wen't dumb with the insanity of hearing constant Neil Diamond songs for countless aeons! I would!
Think I know the place you mean though. Had Shoggoth waitors, and Nyogtha behing the bar?I got a request played; they did a really natty Swing version of Hallowed Be Thy Name by Iron Maiden, which was surprising! Just don't ask them to do Shine On You Crazy Diamond... EVER! The original's enough to open rifts in space and time!

Que?

Hmm. I just got a very odd package in my mailbox today. It was a business-sized manilla envelope addressed to me. The return address was "Starry Wisdom, 472a Calvin Court, Providence, RI 01294". It bore three thirty-seven cent stamps in the upper right corner, each showing a photographic image of the Cthulhu that appeared at Tonmocon I (only this was a photo taken from www.eatenbysquid.com).

Inside the envelope was a glossy image from the Sistine Chapel ceiling showing Adam reclining and reaching out to touch the finger of God. The Almighty had been replaced by an image of the Flying Spaghetti Monster! It featured the caption "TOUCHED BY HIS NOODLY APPENDAGE". Does anybody out there in Tonmoland, uh, know anything about this? It was not unwelcome, but still highly unexpected. Already spoke to Greg. He appears wholly innocent (of this at least).

Like I said at the top of this post, hmm...

What city is the postmark from?

Much as I'd like to take credit, I have no clue...

No postmark whatsoever - it looks like it was hand-delivered, but all the likely suspects down here have been ruled-out, as it was either done while they were at work or they don't have my actual address (my searches online to determine this still bring up former addresses. Everything here is in Rebecca's name). The Flying Spaghetti Monster adds to the mystery as the only folks I know who are aware of this, er, religion are via online corespondance at tonmo.com.
