New Word of the Day

"There’s a word in Italian – dietrologia – for the science of shadowy manipulations in the background which never come to light – it’s a national pastime."

Seattle's Open Circle Theater presents: Arkham, a stage adaptation of H. P. Lovecraft's "Shunned House", "Cool Air" and "Shadow over Innsmouth".

Open Circle continues it's smash-hit series of adaptations of Lovecraft for the stage with ARKHAM, three tales featuring the gambrel-shrouded, witch-haunted town as a unifying theme.

Each story is set in the here-and-now and features female protagonists battling the gods, monsters and pan-dimentional terrors we have all come to know and love.

Will it be rotten or wonderful fun? I'll just have to find out.

Geek Power

The Guardian: "Peering over the rooftops of central London like some catwalk-thin Dalek, the BT Tower celebrates its 40th birthday this weekend."

All hail the Dalek simile and the mainstreaming of geekery!
