Mall of Cthulhu - Tentacles Everywhere!

I apparently visited the Mall of Cthulhu today.

So I'm out shopping for Cthmas presents.  I should be at work but I had to take the day off to get my hot water heater replaced.  There are 5 million people in this city.  What are the odds that I, Head Priest of the First United Church of Cthulhu of all people, should be the one to run across a random tentacle, dirty and discarded, lying in the middle of the parking lot of the movie theater?

Then after getting a fractally spirally Cinnabon, I noticed the green tentacles above me, strung everywhere for the festive Cthmas holiday season!  The beads and mirrored discs descending from the tentacles like dripping ocean water or seaweed as they reach and pull you down to Davy Jones' Foot Locker.

And did you know that Hot Topic is not just shitty screamo band t-shirts and studded belts?!?!  They have some pretty cool stuff from time to time.  They actually had a Cthulhu shirt!  I couldn't believe it.  Couldn't get a good pic of it, so here is the official one.  Okay, it's a lame ass cutesy Cthulhu shirt, but it's a step towards cosmic madness.

Synchronous tentacle action all day long!  Don't forget to check out the First United Church of Cthulhu and have yourself a merry little Cthmas now!

The Astronomicon minorem - DMT, Cthulhu and You is the unholy book of the First United Church of Cthulhu.  The Book of Devouring Stars was written by Khurt Khave, the FUCC's head priest and founding member.

Discover the chaos and madness of the order from the deranged leader who claims to have garnered his knowledge from Yog-Sothoth himself!  Also includes the artists, prophets, and psychonauts who make up the history of the actual religion of Cthulhu which dates as far back as 700 BC.  Lovecraft was only one mad prophet in our great lineage.

Know Your Tentacles!

I love tentacles! I love art! I love information! That's why it sucks when so many cool pictures, memes, and video clips get passed around with no tags at all as to their source. I kept seeing this picture or an animated gif of it reposted time and again but I kept forgetting the name of the film it was from. For some reason the animated gif is in black and white, and it is a period piece with era specific clothing and sets, so a lot of people think it is a much older film.

It is actually from 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, a 2011 Hong Kong 3D erotic costume drama. It is a new installment of the Sex and Zen series which is loosely based on The Carnal Prayer Mat, a Chinese erotic novel by 17th century author and playwright Li Yu.

It has been called “Crouching Tiger meets The Joy of Sex.”

Here is the trailer:

Cthulhu be praised!
