Mythos Art DildoI suppose someone had to make one sooner or later. So, for your, um, pleasure: a Cthulhu-inspired dildo. Why not?

The Mythos Art Dildo is pictured here is blue, but it is “available in whatever colour scheme your mad brain can devise”, and includes a “clit stimulating tentacle tail”.

Given Lovecraft’s aversion to depicting anything even vaguely sexual in his stories, this appropriation of one of his most well known characters seems rather ironic. Happy (belated) 200th birthday, HP. What a treat.

Also on offer from Necronomicox (I swear I didn’t make that up) is the Xenomorph Art Dildo and the Zombi Art Dildo (e not included).

They’re not cheap. They retail at 245$US each from Elastica Engineering, though if you buy one before August 31st, 2010 you’ll save 10%.


The Cthukhelele

The Cthukhelele The Cthukhelele, tweeted by Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) and reshared by BoingBoing.

Pictured here is the front view, but the back is equally awesome, with the Great Old One emerging in all his tentacled glory.

No idea who created it or why (besides the obvious reason that It Needed to be Done).

I wonder how it plays.

Also, while I’m here, thanks for your patience guys. Transition still under way and going well.

My husband and I also recently acquired a new kitten, Lydia. She’s making an adorable nuisance of herself and horrifying the other two cats with her unbridled enthusiasm for all things.

I forgot how much work kittens are.

I haven’t been properly keeping up with my feeds, though there are some things I know I wanted to comment on and will get to in due time.  There’s a series I have plans to release at some point as well, but first I’ve got to finish a few writing projects that have to ship out in the near future.

How’s everything going with you guys?

Mythos travel, Spare’s psychogeography and the eschaton

Saturday Signal on Plutonica.netSaturday Signal: sifting the signal from the noise of the Internet’s occultural cacophony.

Big news of a personal nature: last Friday I quit my job. I gave notice until the 25th, but after that I’m a free agent. Very exciting.

In the last Saturday Signal, I noted that Titan might make a nice vacation spot someday. It turns out visitors may find themselves interacting with the locals,  alien methane-based lifeforms. There’s still that little problem of it being utterly uninhabitable by humans, of course, but still: neat-o.

On to the linkage, also largely travel-themed:

I read my first Hermann Hesse in December, and I’ve been dipping in to his other works over the past few months. I haven’t yet picked up Siddhartha or Steppenwolf, the two for which he is perhaps most famous. I’m saving them.

He’s one of those authors I read and think where have you been all my life? I would have adored them more had I read them as a teenager I think, but they’re still great now.

At the moment I’m reading The Journey to the East, in which the narrator describes a remarkable ’round the world trip with an unnamed secret society called here the League. Each member has a specific goal in joining the League, each different, but united in a search for beauty, truth and meaning. Regarding their destination the narrator explains:

…our goal was not only the East, or rather the East was not only a country and something geographical, but it was the home and youth of the soul, it was everywhere and nowhere, it was the union of all times.

Now that’s magick.

As always, if you come across anything nifty, please share it in the comments, or if you use delicious tag it “ahrfoundation” and we’ll take a look. Thanks!
