There’s something about Murlocs

I don’t know where these fascinations come from. A while ago it was Mind Flayers and now its Murlocs. It could have something to do with finishing, 'The Call of Cthulu and Other Weird Tales' by H.P Lovecraft. The Murloc’s are creatures from the ridiculously successful, cash sea cow, that is World of Warcraft. They're fish men that live in huts and make a gurgling, foaming noise, like they’ve just tasted some Strongbow.

The Murloc’s are heavily influenced by H.P Lovercraft’s The Deep Ones, as mentioned in stories like 'The Shadow Over Innsmouth,' which I’d highly recommend if you’ve never read a Lovecraft story before. It’ll make you think twice about visiting Blackpool and other seaside towns, not that you wouldn’t anyway.

I dunno, maybe I just want to live at the bottom of the sea…not if it involved the cast of The Little Mermaid though. Any singing and I’d let off depth charges and boil up Sebastian’s remains.
