And so it came to pass, in the decade of the 50s, in the 1900s, that someone thought that a three camera system for displaying pictures with a 146 degree arc, and a 2.6:1 aspect ratio was the way that film needed to be seen. And so did they bring forth Cinerama. And lo, they did make but a handful of movies, for the three camera system was a source of many travails. So didst the Cinerama film format fade into oblivion.

However, an eccentric didst decide that the Seattle theatre dedicated to this film format might yet be renovated, restored, and made into a temple to film. And it was so.



And even now, good men and women can see films of great quality at the Seattle Cinerama. And tonight, I tell you now, for it is important that you should know, I am celebrating the long history, the inevitable elevation of the art form, the apex of Man's achievement of screen entertainment.




Oh, yeah.


And, if you watched The Daily Show, you know that Samuel L. Jackson's looking forward to appearing in the sequel. I can only imagine it'll be something like this:

Stoopid HTML.

I had to look up kuh-too-lu-lu-lu-luuuu in wikipedia and I am, well, perplexed. Is there an actual cult as a result of Lovecraft's fictional stories??

I don't know about an actual cult, but there is a roleplaying game - "Call of Cthulhu". The object of the game is to try not to go insane.
