from the abyss, comes madness
from the abyss, comes madness
“Some said the thunder called the lurking fear out of its habitation, while others said the thunder was its voice.” – H.P. Lovecraft
In this volatile world filled with ominous creatures and unknown dangers, the fine line between madness and reason evaporates with the arrival of the lurking fear.
Curious humans stumble upon Mother Nature’s guardians, as they watch over the gates of the abyss, only to become prey to Summer’s haunting season.

Summer is around the corner and with it brings both bright sunny days and prehistoric predators, vacationing topside from beyond the murky depths of dark waters. Summoned by the great ones, these ominous creatures answer the call to recruit new members into their cult of doom.
Do not fear the unknown. The disciples over at Eat the Dead have uncovered ancient texts from the fabled Necro Nom-Nom-Nomicon, that teach us seafaring spells, rumored to repel tentacled beasts from the oceanic netherworld, like this one, for Key Slime Pie.

Today, in honor of National Pizza Party Day, which no one is celebrating due to the pandemic, my sources tell me that the daiquiri is the perfect companion for heavy pizzas, such as pepperoni, or sausage, or pepperoni and sausage…something about all that cheese and red sauce pairing well with the rum and tart.
So, fire up that old stone oven because I found a fangalicious recipe for a Halloween Daiquiri from the good folks over at Vinepair that won’t wait til Fall.
Garnish: sliced mandarin

So, whether you’re logging into Door Dash during the pandemic or learning how to use your oven for the first time since you rented the place, it’s pizza time!
Please don’t let me catch Covid-19.
I don’t want to miss Halloween,
but if I do,
bury me inside of a shoe,
instead of under a tree.
