  • Marketing gone too far?

    I guess it's cool for the kids,
    but
    I hope Elric isnt exploited this way
    or
    do you think it would it be okay?

        I've got you beat Z. Courtesy Toy Vault:

        Now. If someone comes up with a plush Stormbringer, I'll shut this site down.
        The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

          its out-a-hand!!!!!!!

          how goes the job hunt?

          I had a friend looking for people
          to work in the A/V department for Steve Wynn Inc.
          here's her email:

          ''Also, I have a friend that is heading up Steve Wynn's new A\V Department and is looking for experienced people, It doesn't pay GREAT ($15 an hour? I think?)... let me know if you know anybody that would be interested.''

          I can find out more info,
          I think you have to know audio and video programs
          and of course~ its in las vegas.

            It's going to take a lot to beat cuddly Santa Cthulu. :lol: Difficult to visualise Santa's gnomes working at R'leh instead of lapland.

              I wonder what pulls his sleigh? 8O
              When they had advanced together to meet on common
              ground, then there was the clash of shields, of spears
              and the fury of men cased in bronze; bossed shields met
              each other and the din rose loud. Then there were
              mingled the groaning and the crowing of men killed and
              killing, and the ground ran with blood.

                    Christmas with Cthulhu

                    Since we're on the topic of Cthulhu and Santa and all, I guess I will share this treasure trove:

                    A Very Scary Solstice

                    http://www.cthulhulives.org/Solstice/

                    Get a listen: Freddy, the Red-Brained MiGo and Do You Fear What I Fear?

                    Plus other great titles like "I Saw Mommy Kissing Yog Shoggoth" and "It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Fish-Men".

                      We need plushies of the group here. Each of us can have one, and I am sure the kids will have a ball.

                      The Carter and Doc plushies can lead mock classrooms, the Bill and dlackey plushies can argue with the Krunky and bluekachina plushies in the corner with the VonWeiner plushy acting as referee. The Theocrat, DTB, L'Etranger, and Etive can be the house band (even if they don't play an instrument, the Theocrat plushy can teach them ala Jack Black in "School of Rock"). All with the Mike and Berry plushies keeping benevolent watch over the whole mess!

                      Hours of fun!

                        And the Dee plushie can sit at the foot of Una and Catherine's bed, keeping a vigilant watch and protecting them from harm. So very selfless.
