Hail, Miskatonic!

Propnomicon is a Cthulhu aficionado of great refinement and education, as well as a propmaker extraordinaire.  His website is an amazing resource not only for tutorials on how to make period-specific props that evoke both Lovecraftian and other horror themes, but also to showcase his own brilliant work, and the excellent projects and how-to’s of other designers that he has come across.  I am particularly fond of his “things in a bottle,” several of which I am fortunate to own, and grace the desk in my office at the hospital:

Recently, he has unveiled the sheet music for the official school song of Miskatonic University – “Hail, Miskatonic.”  John Cmar (class of 1826), my ancestor and namesake, co-wrote this catchy and popular piece. Click through the image to view the original post and get the full high-resolution sheet music:

Be sure to check out his website for more Cthulhian goodness, as well as his Miskatonic University expedition swag on Zazzle and sundry goods on eBay.  Today, he has posted a limited edition Miskatonic University Prop Set for sale, which is exceptionally cool:
