Oh, what it did to me

I have a confession to make: I’m kind of obsessed with the song “Hey There Delilah”. It gets stuck in my head for hours. Other things I am enamoured of include pretty SF&F art and weird body mods (no really, 2:48, tell me that’s not awesome).

Things I never knew: how to pronounce 99% of all Cthulhu-related words.

Here, in the shape of a lovely little video montage and song, is “Hey There Cthulhu”, by The Eben Brooks Band, the answer to all my prayers. Well, I guess, the answer to the prayers of everyone who wants R’lyeh to rise again to the accompaniment of overly catchy radio hits.

I know what I'm going to be singing for the rest of the day... 


Nina Lourie is having a monsters from the deep kind of day and has been watching this video of an octopus stealing a camera all morning.

And now that's stuck in my head too.

Me and my roommate once wrote a birthday song for a friend based off "Hey there Delilah"...so whenever I hear the real song, I think they're getting the words wrong.

Awesome, brilliant, and just a little bit worrisome and gruesome!

Classic parody stuff. This must be the main hymn for Campus Crusade for Cthulhu.

One of my other favorite Cthulhu songs is Heartache over Innsmouth by Norm Sherman. Great stuff.

I think my favorite is Carole of the Old Ones, but there are a lot of good ones out there.

1. So, so catchy.

2. Well, I know every time I hear the real song I'm going to think it's wrong for not being Cthulhu related:)

3. Also a big fan of: "ee-ah, e-ay" (however it might be spelt) which is simple but cracks me up every time.

4. I'm so glad you said that, because I totally wanted to say something like that but don't consider myself nearly knowledgeable. But oh the pretty pictures.

5 and 6. Seriously. Problematically so.

7 and 8. I love you guys. I'm totally having my own mini-Cthulhumas right now.

9. Yyyyup.
