Ia! Ia! Cthulhu fhtagn!
My best friend bought me this shirt (http://www.zazzle.com/o_rlyeh_ia_rlyeh_tshirt-235331236988021154) for Xmas. Notice the back. ;)
It's so odd how often Cthulhu comes up during sci-fi related conversations with me. Another friend gets seriously bothered when I make a Cthulhu reference. "Who is this Cthulhu you're always talking about?!" he mutters. Clearly, the madness-inducing Great Old Ones are with me.

On a more... serious note... I'd love to see an 'At the Mountains of Madness' movie. The last Ctori Spelling movie that claimed its title as Cthulhu wasn't very good. The HP Lovecraft Historical Society's silent Cthulhu film, however, is a masterpiece.

My favourite Lovecraft story is 'At the Mountains of Madness'. It's got many of the major aliens and creatures of the Mythos and it's just a great read. 'The Shadow over Innsmouth' is a close second, followed closely by, naturally, 'The Call of Cthulhu'!
As for my favourite being, it's definitely Nyarlathotep. Evil never looked and acted so... evil. :)

There's a recently concluded comic series called 'Fall of Cthulhu'. It's a great read. I highly recommend it.
