The Bloop : Cthulhu Live from Rlye'h

bloopWell, I could not resist. The Bloop, according to Wikipedia:

The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency underwater sound detected by the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration several times during the summer of 1997. The source of the sound remains unknown.

The sound, traced to somewhere around 50° S 100° W (South American southwest coast), was detected repeatedly by the Equatorial Pacific Ocean autonomous hydrophone array, which uses U.S. Navy equipment originally designed to detect Soviet submarines. According to the NOAA description, it "rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5,000 km." According to scientists who have studied the phenomenon it matches the audio profile of a living creature but there is no known animal that could have produced the sound. If it is an animal, it would have to be, reportedly, much larger than even a Blue Whale, the largest known animal on the earth.[1]

Because the Bloop noise originated near the location of the fictional sunken city of R'lyeh from H. P. Lovecraft's story "The Call of Cthulhu", the Bloop has been linked to Cthulhu by Lovecraft fans

Well, that sends tremors down my Shoggoth-infested spine, but, wait a minute.. Humor aside, larger than a blue whale? Well, that's big.

Having seen Cloverfield lately, I can honestly say that a Rising of the High Priest of the Elder Gods would not be funny. Not one bit funny. Like shitting bricks not funny.

To aid you in the meditative process of such an event, here's Cthulhu Meditation, using the source audio of the Bloop to make you even more effective in your invocation of the Deep Ones.

Heck, that was easily recognized as musical notes, not some monstrous undersea entity...There is no known animal, (floral or faunal) that could continue with unabated sound for thae length of time I heard, unless of course the audio tape had been modified to some degree....
Now, don't ask me where this "music" originated...I don't know. It is to me an anomaly.

Easily recognized? By who? If you know something I don;t please share! As for the "there is no known animal" part, that is the whole point, right? Thanks for your input
