Episode 69 - The Colour Out of Space (part 1)

We're back, and it's story time again! This is our look at Lovecraft's supreme tale of weird horror, The Colour Out of Space. It's one of Paul's and my favourite stories, but happily Matt is able to provide a voice of dissent to stop this being too much of a cosmic lovefest.

This episode also marks the start of us trying a new host for our media files. Please let us know if you have any problems downloading this episode. We can roll back to the previous solution easily enough.

Oh, and apologies if having a media file named good-friends-69 on your phone, tablet or computer raises any awkward questions. I really should have thought this naming convention through!

You know when I talked about reading American Psycho, how it put images in my head that I know only time would erase? It's like that all over again. :shock:

It's like Marc Maron says, there's nothing illegal on my hard drive, but there's a lot that's hard to explain.
Where Yig doth tread no man treads tomorrow.
Reeking death, harvest of humans in hatred.
Suck on the shitbag of what you created, what we created.
Yig now incoming, Yig now is here.
Yig he makes everything impossibly queer.

I quite like the idea that Graham Walmsley puts forth in Stealing Cthulhu, that you can substitute a lloigor for the colo(u)r, and use the story as a scenario almost unchanged. Then, a lloigor is significantly less alien, since it wants things and communicates those wishes to humans.
