ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
(Thanks, Appliance, via Submitterator!)
Wow. A genuine 1930’s mashup. Gramps approves!
And they both sleep a lot!
I can’t process any word with the consonant CHTH in it. Is it pronounced by cable news anchors, and if so, correctly? The guess I hazard is sort of a KS sound, but with a lisping head cold, like that snake in Allegro non Troppo. Who wrote about this character “Lovecraft”? Can’t say I’ve heard of her.
It shows up in common English words like “autochthonous”, which is usually pronounced “aw-talk-thone-us”. Cthulu isn’t supposed to have the second h, and usually ends up as “kuh-thoo-loo”, although I have no idea whether that’s correct.
It has a kind of D.R. & Quinch vibe too.
I was thinking Jim Woodring.
So Blondie’s real name is “Lavinia”.
Thanks for clearing that up.
Plus, more Lovecrafting classic newspaper strips: John Kovalic paints for charity– “You’re a Good God, Charlie Thulhu“
That is not dead which can eternal lie, and with strange aeons even death may die?
I dunno, Blondie has been around for a really long time.
of all the recent Chu-stuff, this amuses me the most; “mmmm soulwich! With Gods Blood aioli and a side of galaxy rings, yum!’
