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.)

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.

H.P. Lovecraft described the Shoggoth as a “terrible, indescribable thing vaster than any subway train—a shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light all over the tunnel-filling front that bore down upon us…” And don’t forget the corncob pipe, button nose, and two eyes made out of coal.

Artists Amy L. Rawson and Brian East (previously featured here) have created some awesome new handmade Lovecraftian ornaments with which to decorate your Cthulhumas tree or gift to friends or family who appreciate weird fiction and cosmic dread. Joining the tentacular ranks of Santa Cthulhu and Cthupid ornaments are the Shoggoth Snowman (available in sinister white and eldritch black).

“Between the branches of every Christmas Tree there is a spot that cannot be filled with pretty glass, Santa Claus, or tinsel. In that space, that terrible place, only “shapeless congeries of protoplasmic bubbles, faintly self-luminous, and with myriads of temporary eyes forming and un-forming as pustules of greenish light” will do. Shoggoths love Christmas. This one found a hat and a carrot, likely dropped by someone running for his life, and has taken the shape of a snowman as best it can (no one told him that snow is supposed to be white).”

There’s also a golden-winged holiday Cthupid wearing red pajamas:

These awesome ornaments are currently available via the DraigAthar Etsy shop along with a host of other geektastic ornaments, including this awesome Flying Spaghetti Monster:

Demo volume #2

Demo is one of my very favourite comic books because it’s just so unique. I love the writing of Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan’s art is just fantastic.

I’m selling my duplicate copy of volume #2 which is signed by Cloonan (Killjoys, East Coast Rising) over on eBay.

When I was flicking through it to take pictures for the listing this one really stuck out.

It’s the pain in those eyes.
