Antarctica Expedition, Panhyle, and dies mortus Willi Ninja sanctus

Today plays host to three mup holidays:

1) On this day in 1930, Miskatonic University sent its first expedition to explore Antarctica, who were the first modern humans to discover -- and be killed by -- the Elder Things.  Its a minor holiday, but let it be one in which the most ancient of histories resurfaces, and let us all be as lucky as Doctor William Dyer when it does.

Or, if you're feeling nasty, think of today as the day the ancient (but far less ancient than an Elder Thing city or the overthrow of the Elder Thing overlords by the biorobotic super-eukaryotic shoggoths!) histories destroyed and defiled by Daesh rise to wreak upon them the same insanity and death the Elder Thing city dealt to that ill-starred Miskatonic expedition.  Ba'al Shemim and Bel will have their way with you, Daesh, I can assure you of that.

2) Like every 2nd day of the month, today is the day to honor Panhyle, the transmale member of the Tetrad+++.  I will be reading Merri-Todd's hymn to him tonight with my Antinous prayer as my honoring of him.

3) the dies mortus of Willi Ninja sanctus, the inventor of voguing.  In his honor, I post these videos:

And 27 years after that first video was shot, voguing led to this:
