I am so on a power metal kick. I think it's because the music is so stirring that it keeps my recent lethargy at bay....Nothing can keep you from nodding off at your keyboard like Avantasia, Demons & Wizards, oldskool Queensryche (The Warning, bitches!), Iron Fucking Maiden, Crimson Skies, Hammerfall, and YNGWIE MALMSTEEN.

I simply must play some D&D soon. [livejournal.com profile] jdecay? [livejournal.com profile] aidinslevel? [livejournal.com profile] uberdorq? [livejournal.com profile] mirvana

First Edition rules only, people. I mean, come on. I'll make an exception for 3.1 if someone has all the new Monster Manuals and will let me take them to the bathroom so I can whack it to the awesome new illustrations for Driders and Illithids and Umber Hulks.

Also, I got the original Deities & Demigods with the Lovecraft Mythos represented, so you'd better not make the DM...or Nyarlathotep will be guaranteed to show up, and none of y'all will be able to make saving throws versus Being Spooked By Scary IDM!

Cthulhu. The movie.

This seems like it might be a pretty decent movie. It's NOT an adaption of "The Call of Cthulhu", but--much like John Carpenter's In the Mouth of Madness--is a contemporary pastiche of elements taken from various HPL stories: I've already spotted the Shining Trapezohedron and the Esoteric Order of Dagon. The one weird thing about it is...Tori Spelling's in the film. Now, mind you, Tori Spelling is a perfectly okay chick: I'd hit it, in other words--and she's a passable actress. But if this ends up being 90201-meets-"The Thing on the Doorstep", I'm going to kill somebody.

There's also a big flaw in the soundtrack to the film, too. It's begging for a Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos track.

Someday, I swear I will make the definitive film version of "The Call of Cthulhu." Script by me. Directed by me. Probably starring me, too. And you'd better goddamn believe that the Crawling Chaos will do the soundtrack. I'll just need a couple of million to hire the same CGI crew that did Pirates of the Caribbean 2, because they're the only people I will trust to bring R'Lyeh and Cthulhu to the screen.
