Artists Amy L. Rawson and Brian East (previously featured here) have returned with an all new awesome and eldritch Santa Cthulhu creation. We’ve loved the previous incarnations, but this year they’ve outdone themselves my painstakingly crafting an 11" tall needle felted Santa Cthulhu who rides in a gorgeous Oct-Sleigh that’s pulled by the dreaded Shoggoth. Santa Cthulhu travels with a fishnet sack overflowing with writhing tentacular gifts.

Amy and Brian’s Needle Felted Santa Cthulhu with Shoggoth and Octi-Sleigh is a one-of-a-kind creation and is currently available to purchase via Amy’s Etsy shop.

1985. Master of Disguise

is the first album by band Savage Grace.

the band formed by Chris Logue and Brian East , they active between 1981 and 1993.

followed in 1985 and introduced yet another new vocalist, Mike Smith. The album’s controversial cover depicts a police officer with red demon-like eyes keeping a topless girl cleave gagged and handcuffed to his motorcycle. The album was also recorded with only one guitar player, Chris Logue handled all guitar duties. During its release Grace were joined for a short period by Kurt Phillips of Canadian band Witchkiller and then Mark “Chase” Marshall. Later Mike Smith was fired and after touring Europe Dan Finch left the band.

“Master of Disguise” Easily one of the earliest and best speed metal albums ever.

You don’t have to have a tentacular wreath creature hanging on your door or a Cthulhumas tree staring at you from the corner your living room in order to incorporate the Great Old Ones into your holiday festivities. Longtime Cthulhumas celebrants Amy L. Rawson and Brian East (creators of Santa Cthulhu and previously featured here) have been working on these adorable yet still thoroughly eldritch Cthupid Ornaments to hang on your Christmas tree.

That’s right, they’re Cthulhu Cupids. Ancient evil has never been so horrifyingly cute. Amy just finished hand-painting these three tentacular cherubs. Brian is still working on some others.

These ornaments are available via Amy’s Etsy shop along with other Lovecraftian ornaments such as the Snowman Cthulhu Ornament and the Santa Cthulhu Ornament. (But you might want to act quickly if you’re interested, because a little Elder God just told us that the green Cthupid ornament has already been snatched up.)

Nice - Rondo ‘69 (live)

This is the first prog band from the 60s. The drums are technical played by master drummer Brian Davidson. The keys are played by expert pianist Emerson. Guitar by David O’List and bass by… drawing a blank but he was in Refugee or Rare Bird if I am not mistaken. This song has influenced my drumming as much as anything else.

Blow-Up Dolls Make VR Sex Worse

External image

Don’t worry. This gentleman is fully dressed, and he isn’t actually making love to this blow-up doll. Oh good.

Note: This article contains content some readers might find objectionable.

At this month’s Ocufes, a regular event dedicated to the Oculus Rift in Japan, there were loads of VR demos to try, including this:

This comes via a thread on 2ch, Japan’s largest bulletin board, which calls this VR demo “too awful.” Perhaps, the answer is better blow-up dolls?
