The Plushie of The Old Ones

This is Cthulhu. Say hello, Cthulhu!

He's not finished yet; he still needs the wings attached. But I think he makes a pretty sweet mascot for The Lab's new headquarters.

The Wonderous Jouney of the Neverwas Haul

Again I have happened upon something in the intertubes which has utterly enthralled me and I am gagging to tell you all about it

What I'm talking about is The Neverwas Haul, a wonderfully lavish 3 storey Victorian Era Mansion on Wheels. This is the stuff all my Steampunk wet dreams are made of (except for maybe the odd frilly burlesque outfit).

Originally created for the Burning Man festival, held in the Nevada Desert every year, the Neverwas Haul is made up of 75% recycled products, can be self propelled and contains a replica Camera Obscura, faithfully re-done as if from the Jules Verne Era.

Here it is in all it wondrous glory at Burning Man.

Fucking marvelous isn't it!!

Khhaaaann!! Daniel Martinico's Star Trek loop.

This is truly wonderful. Video artist Daniel Martinico has created a remix/loop of the iconic scene from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan where Shatner cries out the name of his enemy in the final reel of the film.

It is a truly great little thing which combines the gleeful familiarity of the scene with overwhelming anticipation and a strange meditative quality (just watch that jaw clench and that eyeball twitter without trying to zone right into it).

Here's the clip, (this only runs for two and a bit minutes, the original goes for fifteen!!??)

and this is the article from LA Weekly

Enjoy it kids.
