"Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age." H.P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"
Welcome to the homepage of BloopWatch, where the Mythos meets Reality. This webpage was founded in tribute to H. P. Lovecraft, the Providence-born writer of "weird tales" who has sometimes been called the father of modern horror. The mission of this page is to document ways in which Lovecraft's writings intersect, or seem to intersect, reality.

Behold! I have not forsaken you, my gentle readers! I have been trying to think of a way to bring you the Lovecraftian news you need without making a giant coding headache for myself. Today, I suddenly had a revelation: Tumblr! I have a Tumblr blog for my normal life (so to speak). Why not one for BloopWatch? So from now on, if you want the latest updates on all things creepy and Lovecraftian, follow us at http://bloopwatch.tumblr.com.

Alrighty, then. Here's the full update at last. We've got plenty of Headlines, Cthulhu Gaming, and Mythos Media entries to tempt you. We also have a pair of mysterious messages on The Bloop page, which I don't fully understand. Maybe someone can add some insight into these mysteries.

The full update is still in the works, but delayed by Icelandic Volcano activity (sucks to be a travel agent at my day job.) But I had to clue folks in that we've been linked to by NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day. Check it out!

Alright, I officially can't locate the BloopWatch pins I made before. Working on Plan B.
