It has been a fair long while since we had anything of tentaculation about these parts (not those parts, get your mind out of the gutter) so here, for your delectation and enjoyment, is a North American animated movie about the Cthulhu mythos, tentacly monsters, and a forbidden lesbian love affair.
Not too bad, eh? Well, except for Arkham Asylum up on the hill there, overlooking the Plateau of Leng and the escaped loon in the foreground. Apparently we’re also not far from Kadath in the Cold Waste; Sarah Palin can see it from her house.
Particularly after the second mushroom.
Note also that the Warm Up Station closes when it gets really cold. I see bureaucrats the world over have the same logical handicaps.
So yeah, things are a little different in Yellowknife. In Vancouver, they made you get a tattoo of whoever was on the cover of Billboard’s latest issue, and DEAR GOD I wanted to wear a burqa when it was the Jonas Brothers’ turn. Eventually I ran out of space, so they just gave me new arms to start fresh, and that was when I made my escape.
I’ve been learning a little about the town thanks to these instructional tourist guide videos that a commenter sent to me.
