We’ve had a lot of reboots, reimagings, and remakes recently. A lot of them have sucked, but they don’t always have to. The Wizard of Oz, The Departed, The Thing, The Fly, all remakes of other films. Likewise, we’ve seen many different versions of X-Men, Transformers, Ghostbusters, GIJoe, Thundercats, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and other popular cartoons. Sure, some have been crap, but others have actually been pretty good.

There are a couple things that you’d need to make a great Lego game. First, you need a lot of characters, and they have to have a diverse skill set. We need to have a reason to switch between all those characters. There needs to be action, you have to fight someone, and that someone will need a horde of anonymous troops for you to fight. And lastly, we’ll need a large world with lots of different locations to play in. A good story pre-existing storyline can help, but they can make up their own just as easily as long as the characters and world are good.
There are several franchises that I’d like to see turned into Lego games. Sure, some of these don’t even have a chance at making it, but it sure would be nice.
So the other night, I made a nice dinner. Crab legs, shrimp, scallops, potatoes, and some spaghetti Aglio e Olio.
The girlfriend loved it…
Until the next day, when she said, and I’m quoting here, “The kitchen smells like Cthulhu’s asshole. Go clean it.”
If you wish to know how I made it, I’ll give you the recipe.
The Elder Sign is something that every fan of H.P. Lovecraft knows about. To us, it’s right up there next to Cthulhu himself as one of his most recognizable things. The problem however, is that most of you don’t actually recognize the right thing. Drunken Zadok, from The Shadow Over Innsmouth, is the only person in all love Lovecraft’s writings to ever talk about the sign. In fact, it’s the only time that it’s ever talked about in any of his stories. He does mention the symbol in letters that he wrote to Clark Ashton Smith, and even drew it once. His drawing was that of one long line, with five smaller lines branching off of it, resembling a branch of a pine tree. The same one that is pictured to the left here.
