So as a afficionado of H.P. Lovecraft and cryptozoology I was thinking of doing an article on big squid for "The People of Innsmouth" - the official newsletter of my Lovecraftian rock band "The Darkest of the Hillside Thickets." Naturally I begin doing research and eventually I found my way to this board. OUTSTANDING!!! I don't have any degrees in marine biology but obviously I am a fan of cephalopods of all types. I wrote a song called "Jimmy the Squid" and you better believe I know who Dr. O'Shea, Clyde Roper, Mike DeGruy & Richard Ellis are, so I was pleased as punch to see a forum where O'Shea routinely posts. I have been glued to this site all day (except when I had to go get my hair cut) absorbing the massive amounts of information. Super yay! I heart squid! I guess that's my introduction, such as it is. I'm also an illustrator (I do a lot of work for roleplaying games like Call of Cthulhu and Dungeons & Dragons) and I've written a book called Spaceship Zero. If anyone is interested in what I do here are some links: www.toren.net/thickets - my personal website www.holycow.com/thickets - my Cthulhu rock band http://members.shaw.ca/spaceshipzero/ Pleased as punch to be here. Now 1/2 price post-Easter chocolate calls.
