CTHULHU!!!

4844517-4138445607-cthul.jpg

 

This challenge I am going to work on my inner Cthulhu and destroy everything!!!

 

Goal 1: Strength

Cthulhu is obviously a giant destructive force that leaves others quivering in its wake.

So I am going to continue my Juggernaut training. I will most likely scale this to at least 2 times a week due to the holiday craziness

and a need for a stronger focus on other areas.

Juggernaut 2X a week min

Goal 2: Malleable Anatomy

Cthulhu is a shape shifting giant mountain full of slimy goodness and tentacles.

I am going to pick up some more yoga this time. I have a few yoga videos in mind and my goal is 

Yoga 30 mins 3x a week

The-most-popular-font-b-movies-b-font-di

 

Goal 3: Madness Manipulation

Cthulhu is sleeping in his sunken city but he is also manipulating the dreams of others and it is said that 

the ones unlucky enough to see him will plunge into madness.

I am going to focus on channeling a little of my own madness and practice drawing more this month.

My goal is to practice at least 30 mins 3x a week. Bonus points for Cthulhu fan art :excitement:

Goal 4: Mental Manipulation

Cthulhu can also read and manipulate the mental functions of others. So I am going to share in this

like minded state with joining the Discworld reading book club here on NF.

This month we are reading Guards! Guards! It will be our first one so feel free to jump in here:

Thanks :D 

I did a test run of one of the videos last night and holy crap I haven't been this inflexible in a long time!

Plus its easier to stick with my goals when most of them can be done at home because December is a lazy month haha

Following, obviously. 

I'm not familiar with Cthulhu, but I'm doing a Matrix challenge, so this seemed appropriate:

Challenge looks good - way to think ahead!! Smart. 

Awesome! I love the matrix, I would say the second one is my favorite. But Cthulhu is a monster created by HP Lovecraft in the 1920s. It is a short read and the audiobook is on youtube and can be finished in 90 mins. He is an eternal alien whos job it is to wake "the old ones". The old ones are aliens who have ruled the universe since the beginning of time. I just started reading his short stories and so far I am liking it :)

 

Thanks for following again!

Me thinks I'll have to download some audio books for my daily commute in December. I love sci-fi and have been meaning to read Lovecraft forever. My SO is really into his stories, I'm just behind the times. 

 

Whats the best way/app to download audio books on an iPhone?

Yeah I just started looking into his work this week so I am behind too (almost 100 yrs behind)

 

I would say the legal route: Audible 

The free route: youtube has a bunch of audiobooks 

The pirate way: download the mp3 files using torrents and then put mp3s on iphone with computer

Oh how I love Cthulu.  I'm along for the descent into madness.

 

If you're into Lovecraft and guns AND urban fantasy, check out Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia.  Good mindless kiling with Great Old Ones in the background of every plot.
